    TE vs. AP

    Vern... The "swoop" in the shoulders refers to the ornamental ridge sculpted into the original ANH mould, not that angle at which the armor is worn, nor the curve of how it's trimmed or any other superficial/assembly characteristic. It's IN the part. The original suits had one shoulder bell where the ridge "swoops" backwards. AP kits don't have it. Both shoulders are identical. As are the biceps. You can very clearly see both shoulders are the same in the AP kit. And in the screen grab of Han's suit in ANH, you can easily see that one shoulder has a pronounced, evident swoop in the ridge. (Thanks, Tony, for the image) These aren't subtle intricacies, visible only to people who own AP armor. They're clearly visible in photos. They're fairly obvious physical characteristics. Which is why SO many people have noted them in threads like these. AP kits DO reuse one half of one shin on both legs. AP DOES have the ROTJ overlap moulded into ALL the arm and leg pieces. Trust me, dude-- no one here is trying to advance misinformation, or suppress the truth from coming out, or pick on you.. But unless AP has made some HUGE modifications to his kit we're all unaware of, the stuff you've asserted here simply isn't correct.

    Uh... so, I take it you're not a big Tom Cruise fan, either?

    It's OBSCENE, what that guy charges.

    ANH Blaster

    I think these guys make really nice rubber-cast ones: http://blog.sci-fire.com/ And if you seek "ItchyNuts", he makes amazing hand-made ones. Don't let the name throw ya' off. They're works of art.

    ANH Blaster

    You'd have to adapt this one quite a bit-- removing the "U" track, replacing it with "T" track, altering the front nozzle, removing the D ring from the side... etc., etc. I honestly think you'd be better off leaving this one as it is, and getting a separate ANH blaster altogether. It's a fantastic gun-- it's just not for the right movie. Why not use this as a perfect excuse to get a new ANH blaster and have TWO awesome props?

    ANH Blaster

    Bruce -- sweet blaster! I'd agree with Alex: looks to be an ROTJ one.

    I'd love to see Scottish Star Wars

    Yankie-- played with a horrible American accent by a guy from Bavaria. Pretty sure the whole nation of Scotland would love to punch James Doohan in the gut for doing such a terrible brogue on those shows. Almost as good as Sean Connery's Russian Navy skipper. "Uh... doesh the shubmarine captain have to be from Leningrad? Can't we shay he'sh from just outshide Edinburgh?"

    Black Armor stolen

    Enter "caught on camera" in the site's search field. It'll bring up the costume story in the search returns. I read it -- definitely sounds like he arranged to have some buddies fake the theft. And 5 grand, for THAT? Somebody's playing fast and loose with the numbers.

    AP vs TM differences

    Vern -- the overlap is a strictly ROTJ feature, if I'm not mistaken. The AP kit has the overlap moulded into the parts, because the armor was cast from an ROTJ suit. To emulate the ANH/ESB suits, you should trim AWAY the overlap seams, leaving only enough edge to accommodate the finishing strips. I made the same mistake when I put together my first GF -- I went for an ANH look, but I used the overlap. To my knowledge, this was incorrect. It won't keep you out of the 501st, or preclude you from EIB status at present, but it's not esthetically consistent with the suits in the first two movies. As I learned more, I came to understand that if I wanted to duplicate the construction method in ANH, I should have ditched the overlap altogether. Also, every reference photo I've ever seen shows the ANH and ESB stunt helmets with flat green acetate lenses. Only the hero helmets had the bubble lenses. Not to be contentious, but it does seem as though you're confusing ESB details with ROTJ details.

    I dunno.... is it a SPEAKING role?

    AP vs TM differences

    I love those photos. The resemblance is absolutely uncanny.
