  1. It might be "lame". I'll see if I can verify. They have it at both my local JoAnn Fabrics and Hobby Lobby. It's thin and stretchy. I spray mounted it to the headliner material available from JoAnn's (mounted to the foamy side) that poeple use for the neck seals. Then a lot of sewing lines into it. A lot of sewing lol. There is a seller on the boards here selling cloth versions (and rubber), in case you don't want to make them yourself: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/31019-imperial-gaskets-more-upgrades/ Here's a pic of some of my progress: Here's mounting the headliner foam shape to the shiny cloth: I spray mounted it to keep the fabric from bunching up as I sewed the lines into it. (Cut out foam shape to pattern, tape fabric down to counter so it won't move, hit foamy side of arm shape with spray glue--light cote, drop onto fabric, flip it all over and smooth out the fabric). Also, mounting the shiny cloth to the foamy side means it moves easily through my sewing machine. My machine really does not like feeding the foam by itself.
  2. FWIW, that's who I ended up ordering one from. Shipped quick, good communication.
  3. I strongly doubt they'll run that high in the 'pre-order' state--assuming they do pre-orders. But they may not do pre-orders and go straight to the IPO price, since they've worked out the details with the marketing/exclusive kits. I'd be super surprised if it was anywhere near that much for a kit at IPO. On the bright side, if it is, it'll help to spawn more fan-made options.
  4. Yeah I saw that too... weird. I sent them an email on Saturday but haven't heard back yet.
  5. So I'm not a fan of the thought of wearing rubber sleeves, so I bought some shiny fabric to make some more breathable gaskets. Do these pics below look like it will pass muster? Essentially it's just shiny fabric over the headliner material a lot of people use for neck gaskets. Also, the CRL says the shoulder, elbow and knee gaskets "shall be rubber or a shiny black material with ridges", but the neckseal doesn't specify shiny or not: Should the neckseal be of the same material? Or will the one I have for my classic TK suffice? Thanks in advance! -Ted (oh, and let me add that searching up 'rubber fabric' on google may take you to some...erm..."special" places)
  6. I'm not seeing it on their site...I'm only seeing gloves for TFA...
  7. Check out the project runs section over on the RPF for this stuff. I'm not sure why it's so hard to find here... Here's a couple: http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=245993 and http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=246803 Just search the project runs forum for star wars. All sorts of stuff from TFA is being produced. HTH, -Ted
  8. Does anyone know of a source for the belts (just the base belt--boxes not necessary), or a source for the material used? Thanks in advance! -Ted
  9. Ah...hopefully we'll see some public build threads soon, especially with all the fan made kits hitting the market. I should have my kit in a about a month (non-anovos) With a little luck I'll have it done for the premiere. Or I'll make a mess of it and keep it secret Oh I wouldn't expect anyone to share what they paid.
  10. I'm thinking about purchasing a kit. I must be missing something obvious...where are the build threads?
  11. Just curious if any of the armor makers out there are putting together the new storm trooper armor...
  12. Yeah, the 'prototype' was just a photoshopped pic. Glad to see some pics of the real thing. Made a little gif for your enjoyment:
