  1. Anovos are no longer supplying Star Wars costumes due to the license being taken away by Disney. Non supply of orders from over 4 years ago. You will find that many of the black series helmets will not meet 501st legion costume approval, check out the CRL's for costume requirements https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:FISD_CRL You can find the vetted sellers list here
  2. Have a read of the Getting Started section, there is some research required with this hobby. Legion has a base requirement for costume approval (CRL's), for Stormtroopers you can find them here Also some more information on becoming a member is here. Good luck and hope to see a build thread from you soon.
  3. Nice work trooper, just a couple of suggestions before the DO's review: Watch the gaps match on both sides, you can see one arm the forearm is touching the handplate the other has a gap. Also different gaps between the thighs and cod. You also have quite a bit of black showing between your shoulder bells and chest, the original shoulder bells had a curve to them, you could also bring the bells in closer at the top, they appear to have a gap under them to the top of the shoulders as well. You may want to bring your thighs down a little or try move the whol
  4. Soft goods try Geeky Pink (SoulArt) Vendors list is here Ammo vest I'm not aware anyone is making them at the moment. Weapons vendors Shorts need a shine to them, Unfortunately Lycra won't do, it's more of a coating, plastic look, I found a pair on ebay but it was quite some time ago so I don't have a link.
  5. If you haven't 3D printed before I would suggest adding slightly thicker walls when printing, helps with strength of pieces, I find printed parts can be easily cracked.
  6. Gaps are looking very nice, your butt plate appears to be pushing backwards, may need some tighter strapping. I also came up with a V tab system which helps keep them in alignment. With a heat gun you bend strips of ABS plastic into the shape of a V, only glue one side and the other remains free to allow movement when you bend. Just helps stop the butt plate from pushing back from the back plate.
  7. Real life has to come first, you know the build and all of us will still be there when you are ready to continue.
  8. Nice work, just check your dimensions on the detonator as you don't seem to have much of a gap between the endcaps and panel Teeth area looks much better Using a hot water bath should help to flatten the rear strip, a common issue on most kits Cod reference, I left mine slightly pointy
  9. On hold currently, Andrew is taking a short break and I am working on a few other projects BUT we will be getting back to this soon. Did you have an issue with a thread?
  10. Hello and welcome to the forums, from the other side of down under, I'm sure you'll get a lot of help from local guys of SCG, good luck with the build
  11. A very in depth and honest review, well done. I find it is a common problem with so many prop suppliers in regard to poor communication which is a shame especially when their products are so good. My response to those with poor communication is, "I would rather receive bad news in a communication rather than no communication at all, at least I know you will still be fulfilling the order, although now somewhat delayed"
  12. Correct there are some changes needed in quite a few areas which we'll be addressing down the road Here is an updated thread
  13. The issue is merch spots with only 6 allotted to detachments now, in the past you could do how many you liked. I missed the last run myself and I've asked several times for another but to date no luck. I will pose the question in staff.
  14. Its working for me so it could be an access issue, hopefully @Sly11can have a look into it

  18. Doubling up on magnets can increase there power. When you want to build quickly there are no "too many" clamps, magnets and even painters tape. I also use small strips of ABS to help hold snaps so you only need to use one clamp or set of magnets. I ordered more magnets after this image was taken.
  19. Unfortunately the only images we have are in the gallery sections, as well as the Rogue One section there are Mandalorian and Solo images which are based on the R1 armor, only screen captures though.
  20. Great news looking forward to seeing those BBB photos soon
  21. Very nice, the padding is awesome
