  1. Apologies for taking so long to get these done -- been wanting to get back to DHS for quite some months. I haven't changed the contrast or exposure on these for fear of altering the color balance. As shot, the colors are pretty accurate to what I saw with my naked Eye. I will bump the exposure a bit in a second set to bring some details out of the shadows. Grateful for the opportunity to serve private gallery of images - Shoretrooper - November 2017
  2. https://www.amazon.com/Fearless-Dare-devil-Life-Size-Statue/dp/B00Q3V8LB0 Older Post, but I saw this entry on Amazon today as I begin the inevitable deep dive into research - is the current advisory opinion about this source positive or negative?
  3. I think the brow looks that low as a result of the way the picture was taken. On the Anovos site, the image straight on shows the brow not quite so low
  4. I find it fascinating that there has been a 28% increase in the price of the kit since the first orders were taken ( $350 - $450 ). I can only hope that the build quality and manufacturing tolerences has improved by 28% as well

  6. Like my signature pretty much says, I'm quite short for a stormtrooper. I would think that at some point there should be a subset of this community for diminuitive corps members. I would be grateful to any other members 5'5" or below that can offer practical advice from your experiences on the modifications needed for honoring the spirit of the 501st at our limited stature. I believe my ultimate inventory shall include a legacy trooper, a TFA ( if thats what they are going to be called ) from the new movies, a Scout Trooper, a Kashyyyk, and a ARF Trooper. I am currently eyeing the Anovos kit as a reasonably low pricepoint to gain approval from the first bank of wife, and my goal would be to be approved by the time Episode VII releases in December. Thank you in advance for all of your assistance! Nicholas
  7. Ive been pouring over alot of research from scout trooper to Kashyyyk and now seeing this Anovos as a potentially lower threshold for convincing the first bank of wife to approve the capital expendeture to get my foot in the door of this world called trooping!. Here is a question about what i see being advertised on their site - "This costume is designed to fit a person that is between 5 ft. 8 in to 6 ft. (1.7 to 1.8 meters) in height, with a mesomorphic body-type. Because the armor parts are designed at a specific single size like the original costumes, some trimming or shimming may be required depending on your body type, particularly if your outside of the range (either smaller or taller). The kit version of this costume allows for maximum customization" In your experience, if a person is 3-4" shorter than that min height, what will be the most effective way to alter the or trim the armor? I would think that simply having a shorter torso exposed and an unaltered chest piece might look odd. Also I would think that the length of the thigh and calf pieces would need modifying as well, correct? Nicholas
