I had the funtasma walker boots. They were a good starter boot for the price. Around$70 US. If these are like the walkers, expect a vinyl boot that has a nice look to it. The material scuffs easily. My only big complaint with the walker boots was the foot bed area. If you're going to be wearing them at a con you'd want to put some gels in there for comfort.
Overall, not a bad boot for the price. Just don't expect them to last for the long term.
I eventually went with a full custom leather boot made by Daniel/jdos productions out of Peru. It's a real leather boot that cost about $250 but worth every penny. Extremely comfortable even after an all day con. Real leather that's soft smooth and looks amazing.
Just remember you get what you pay for. If you go in expecting that, you should be prepared for the outcome. I will go out in a limb and say that probably a majority of Rebel legion jedi and other costumers have the Funtasma boots. At least they start out with them.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
