  1. Yeah well, I think it's easier to notice the assymetry that way. Your method might be true when perspective is involved, but when you have the chance to have orthographic views of the item you want to compare there's not reason not to make use of it.
  2. Isn't it old, already long known stuff?! Those orthographic pictures have been around for around a year and a half now. By the way, these 3D renders were shared by Sam Williams who's been in charge of doing lots of the hard-surface 3D modelling for the various late SW films in ZBrush. Many of these 3D models were then taken and resurfaced in Solidworks by Alan Meeks. But Glyn Dyllon didn't make any of the costume parts himself, he's concept artist and costume designer (that's way harder you can argue). Also I don't see what you're trying to show by taking a picture and simply mirroring it? If you want to clearly show the assymetry (yes, the helmet is) you need to crop only half of the picture, flip it vertically and paste it over the other half of the picture and then slowly change the opacity from 0 to 100%. Even just pasting half of the helmet over the other half is more informative than what you've done :/
  3. From what I heard they used Anovos OT helmets with R1 armors.
  4. This is a one minute long clip that's part of a 38mn long episode (that apparently you haven't seen), that's part of a 8 episodes series... My point is: let's stay measured, and wait for the whole thing to be out before starting to think about creating new CRLs everywhere.
  5. It's probably the Rogue One variant though. So a slightly different blaster than the one from the iconic ANH promotional pictures and the unofficial FISD mascott we all love. Cool nonetheless.
  6. Well, you say that like you're actually caring or enforcing anything. Truth is I see recasts everywhere nowadays and no one seem to give a damn anymore. Just here few days ago, I opened and OT stormtrooper application with an armor acronym I didn't know and it was a RS or Anovos (they're basically the same) recast. Did I read or heard anything about it on FISD before, or even after? No. It doesn't seem to matter now, and am not even sure their are still people here willing to spot them. But we're getting seriously off-topic here, so I'm just going to re-focus on the Ep. IX FOTK for now on.
  7. Ha ha, I don't give much at all about Anovos being recast. Given how they recast RS for their Stormtrooper OT armor, I don't think they deserve any kind of protection or support from our community. They have lawyers for that.
  8. Yeah, Anovos is clearly bending things the way it suits them best. At this point I'm almost just hoping for someone committed and reliable to get an Anovos kit and recast it...
  9. Again Anovos most likely based their cut off of Finn's specific armour. But they stopped halfway and omitted to also cut that raised, outer part of the forearm. This would be an easy way to fix the Anovos forearms by the way.
  10. By the way, is it me or does it look like the abdomen piece has been massively shortened at the front? It seems to be ending right near the lower edge of the chest plate instead of protruding upward like the TFA armors did.
  11. Just saw this picture on FB today. Looks like D-ring is a thing again!
  12. Sorry to keep coming back to this topic but, I wanted to check and the executioners definitely do have the mobility cut to their forearms too. In fact if pay attention to all the troopers in the background it quite obvious that this cut has become standard for TLJ, and then TROS. But what's nice , is that once you know it's there you can even guess the expanding stripe along the back seam: So here's an interesting piece of trivia if you're doing an executioner and care about deepest accuracy: mobility cut at the front, and expanding stripe at the back. Also here's some more troopers with the mobility cut. I don't know if it is already, but I think this might be something worth mentioning in the TLJ/TROS CRLs. Or at least for the higher levels of accuracy.
  13. Don't be mistaken, these forearms aren't cut. They've been expanded by adding a vertical stripe along the seam where the outer and inner halves of the forearm meet. As for the TROS blasters, I don't see what you guys are liking in them. They all look like junk to me, with all these oversized barrels.
  14. It's a different mobility cut. The Anovos cut, is extreme and based on a Finn's armor. The mobility cut for the ROS stormtroopers (and TLJ troopers too as I realized afterwards) is not as important but still differs to the original TFA troopers.
  15. The elbow mobility cut may have become standard from what I see.
