  1. I think all my questions have been answered here. A lot has been posted since I went to bed this morning and woke to see what became of it. Andrew I am sorry for your loss, and sorry if this thread has caused you any issue. When I saw the sale on Ebay it just looked wrong. I like the idea of you honoring your wife and even growing the legion in the process. I myself have gotten too far into this to want to purchase a recast FX kit, as I get the feeling that FISD is trying to phase these out. If there is anything the neighboring WI Garrison, and the New Black Ice Squad can do to help out let me know. I think your heart is in the right place and I wish you the best.
  2. I see. That I didn't know. When I look through the armor thread this is all it says about FX: Type: FX Country: USA Availability: FX is not currently being sold. Do not buy from e-bay - kits are over-priced, the quality is often dubious, and always recast. Contact: N/A Kit: ABS, trimmed, fan sculpt. Comments: It's good, robust armour that will hold up to a lot of abuse. While the helmet is fading away, the armor continues to be popular and will be in the Legion for some time.
  3. When I say "fishy" it just seemed contrary to everything I have heard until now. Don't buy on ebay and don't buy recast. That's all. Just the first time I have seen something advertised like this. Usually people say things like "Screen Accurate" or fail to mention that they are "Fan Made". I know that your ad was pretty honest in it's entirety. The QA at the bottom does help. It's just something you don't normally see on ebay.
  4. While I was at work last night, combing the forums and shopping online and what not, I saw this auction. But I could only read the main post, I could not see the Q and A on the bottom. It does help a little more being able to read that when I looked again on my computer at home. The security on our work computers kinda blocks things out sometimes. I could see something on the bottom of the page, but it was unreadable. So this is an FX kit made of ABS. I just thought FX were gone and had been replaced entirely by AM. I didn't know there were any reputable people selling FX anymore.
  5. Were these the same type of kits that AM sells? I don't know much about recasts that's kind of why I brought this up. This is a bit new to me. I am from Spec Ops and over there the term doesn't come up much. I start looking around on the FISD/MEPD and the term pops up everywhere! I was just confused to see a 501st member selling something on Ebay when we always say stay away from Ebay. And then tossing around the word "Recast" which again everyone says stay away from. If this is anything like an AM kit they are really high quality ABS, just need a few mods to make better. I think AM kits go for close to the same price these were selling for, but I don't think they sell the helmet anymore. I am Sorry for the sellers loss I can't imagine what I would do in his position. I didn't want to flame anyone. Just looking at the auction and the way things were worded seemed fishy to me. I want to get in white armor soon (TK), as they seem to get more recognition than a "mini Darth Vader", but I think I will be waiting a little longer now cause I just bought a Shocktrooper from a fellow clonetrooper! I will continue to research around here what I think is best for me. So far RS seems tops. Maybe I should get on a waiting list now!
  6. I was cruising through the bay. I was in no means searching for armor, but I came across this auction. It is kind of confusing to me. I see people argue about recasting, and then people saying don't buy on e-bay. This seller is a member openly selling and advertising "recast" on ebay!?! The seller also claims this suit is approvable....is that true? I understand the approval process: your armor needs to fit you properly, it has to meet the standards set forth in the CRL. I guess it's 3am here and I am bored,but something just doesn't seem right... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stormtrooper-Armor-Armour-Full-ABS-Kit-Star-Wars-Prop-Costume-/330862595505?_trksid=p2047675.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D11%26meid%3D5074090155793160225%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D1005%26rk%3D5%26sd%3D180961227689%26
