  1. Definitely a personal preference, my friend, but what I should have said was jagged points. Those things would rip an under suit to shreds, lol.
  2. You can (and should) trim down the rear of the tops as shown below, Rodney, for 2 reasons: 1. You don't want any jagged edges that can (and will) poke into you. The tops of the biceps are hidden by the shoulder bells, so no one can see them anyway. 2. As you probably know, I'm not a fan of return edges. As seen in the screen used ones below there are none on the rear tops (or fronts of the one in the last image). If you decide to remove them, be sure to do it before final fitting.
  3. Please welcome to the ranks Centurion # 491- Josh (Silverback73) TK 20112 of the Star Garrison. Nice job, sir! Down to the single digits, folks. Only 9 spots left to be a part of FISD history!
  4. Hi Josh, and thank you for your application for ANH Stunt Centurion! CRL and Centurion Application Requirements: All required photos have been submitted, and on behalf of the entire D.O. staff we are pleased to welcome you to the rank of CENTURION. Congratulations! Other-Armor Fit/Assembly; In this area we review observations made by your fellow troopers and the DO team. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor. Note that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submi
  5. Welcome to the FISD, Joseph! (Nice name, by the way)! The link that Danny added (Ukswrath's Anovos build) is going to be your best reference, but you can glean info. from other build threads as well. As Glen mentioned, starting your own build thread is your best bet by far. You can ask all the questions you like and post up tons of pictures. (We LOVE pictures). Having those is especially helpful when/if you have an issue. Anovos armor has it's quirks just like any other kit, and we can help you through the entire process, start to finish. My main advice would be this: Take.
  6. GREAT to hear that you are headed for Centurion, Matt! For the strapping, there are a couple of things to consider depending on where you want to use it. Different trooper have different preferences, but I personally use nylon for all connections except the shoulder strap that connects the chest/back where the 2 inch white elastic is used and the bicep to forearm (1 inch black elastic). Nylon does limit your mobility a bit, but for me it has never been an issue. Being able to bend and stretch (or even sit down) is not one of our strong points, lol. As ment
  7. Hi Davin! One of us will be with you shortly. sir!
  8. Hi Jeff! Posting up a photo would help immensely. Have you removed all the return edges from the bottom(s)? If not, this will help and is screen accurate. There are ways to loosen them, but they will more than likely require removing the cover strips (not as difficult as you may think).
  9. Quest Design in Canada (link here) makes a darned nice blaster. Not 100% screen accurate, but lots of great details. If you want to go all out and REALLY jazz it up, you can order one of Tino's incredible E-11 completion kits and replace some of the pieces. I have done a couple of Doopydoo builds (and converted a Quest Design E-11) with his kits, and they really do make a huge difference in screen accuracy.
  10. There are advantages and disadvantages to different types of blasters, for instance: Rubber- (Hyperfirm-Praetorian) Pros- Basically unbreakable. Perfect for trooping, and you can let folks who ask "Can I hold your gun" pose with you for photos without fear of them dropping it. Cons- Not as detailed/screen accurate. Can be expensive. Resin-(Doopydoos)- Pros-Comes as a kit, but can be modified with one of Tino's finishing kits to replicate a screen used weapon. Cons- Hard to get ds to be on the brittle side. Not recommended to loan to a fan.
  11. Excellent point, brother. Sorry that happened to you, but I have added a link to this post in #1 of the original post. THANKS! 1. ..... They also can (and will) shatter if allowed to connect from a distance, and flying chips can cause eye injuries. In a word, be careful. I highly suggest wearing eye protection. That is up to you, but please read this post from Glen located below.
  12. I pulled my Anovos Hero armor out of storage after 2 years and there is some yellowing. I find this strange as I've only had it out and worn it (indoors) 3 times, otherwise it's sealed in a bin, so no sunlight.
  13. I always stress how careful folks have to be with these.. they can break skin and bring blood if handled incorrectly. Remember, these are NOT solid metal like regular magnets... I have seen them jump 6 inches to connect and shatter on impact.
  14. Looks like you have quite a bit of seepage there, but this is actually easily removed. Just use a razor knife and carefully trim along the cover strip.... just deep enough to cut through the glue. After that, it should rub off using your thumb or a sharpened popsicle stick.
