  4. Hi guys It’s been a while since I posted but I have been busy on lots of Helmet projects. I just thought I’d show off the CFO TK helmet line up. First up is the new ANH SET FOR STUN helmet I’ve been working on. This is a prototype test helmet. I’ve managed to capture a lot of the details from the original 3D scan in the vac forms. So you can see the cracks, drips, chips in the paint and even where the tube stripes were painted. Next up is our new ESB mkii helmet cast from the one JoeR used to own. Then we have the CFO JoeR ROTJ helmet. And finally the Oakley helm
  5. I make them too. Mine are cast from an original set. £20 a pair. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Oh! <br> Really? I haven't had that email. I use Photobucket. Guess I must check it out.
  7. Kits and finished helmets are available. I'll put a sales thread up in the sales section or pm me for details. <br><br> Thanks for the support.
  8. Just read through the list of vetted vendors on here and make a decision. Stay away from etsy and Ebay etc. Good luck with your decision.
  9. Wow. What a load of rubbish. The fact they changed their description is enough as it was misrepresented by the original description. they clearly agree or they wouldn't have changed it. Also $200 to ship armour within the US is outrageous. I can ship armour to the US via express fully tracked in 3 days for less than that and I'm shipping from the uk. <br> What a loser. I hope it works out with Amazon. I had someone dick me around on Amazon so long their "return period" had expired so refused a refund l and said good luck. I contacted Amazon and received a refund right away. Lol.
  10. Where did you see these Mark? As far as I know only the tour suits weren't riveted or at least some weren't. And maybe the ESB mkii too.
  11. Paul, I wish I could be at Celebration but unfortunately you may have to buy me a beer another time. :cheers: I'm just glad I got through in the end. Thanks for your support.
  12. Thank you Paul! It has been a long slog. but I am pleased with the outcome and decision to include them within the CRL. I can't express how happy I am. I'm sure my customers will be pleased to hear this too. Thanks. Mark.
  13. I have proved they were there before filming and after filming. So it's down to the powers that be to decide if they were there during filming.
  14. I don't think they are visible on screen but that's how they were constructed. I've shown proof of before shooting and after of them being there. As I said I find it beyond belief that they were there before and after but not during. They are 4mm of white rivet on white plastic hidden under the helmet for the majority. The 6 foot rule applied back then as there was no HD or Bluray. If you couldn't see it from 6 foot it didn't matter. No matter how the film is remastered it will still only be as high res as the film it was originally filmed on. <br> I'm not sure why this is so hard to be
  15. Why are production photos accepted for the CRL of ANH armour but not for ROTJ? Sorry to hijack but CFO put these photos out into the public domain and they are being used to clarify the ANH CRL. Yet the production pics I'm showing are dismissed because they are not screen shots. I'm referring to this post. http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/40073-shoulder-straps/#entry535867 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I understand that the 501st isn't about prop replication but I don't understand why we get penalised for replicating them. Surely that should be the highest level. As it stands if an original Stormtrooper walked of the Set of Endor he would be refused entry into the 501st because his costume is too screen accurate. This I find ridiculous. Because the 501st choose idealised over screen accurate. If the 501st refuse to see it on screen or simply can't see it on screen why should it matter in real life. The public really are not going to see it either but it's there and always was.
  17. My responses and examples were only in response to your claims not mine, that's what I meant. But anyway let's move on. It's not really important. I think this just about sums it up and is what I find so frustrating. I've never understood why something that looks so original is a problem for a costume club if it's foundations are based on the very characters we are emulating.
  18. I've never used examples to support my claims. I was responding to the comments put up in this thread to support your claims. I started this thread because I was getting customers having a hard time getting approval because their costumes are too screen accurate.
  19. I thought we were talking about Star Wars here and not the real world army? Just because members were in the forces shouldn't mean that the rules of the real world army apply in the Star Wars universe. I think we are diverting here and making excuses for mistakes made in the CRL. Also props of Star Wars were based on WWII and other historic costumes and weapons not modern day uniformity. In historic warfare soldiers pretty much used and wore what they could and many variations appeared. There were certainly similarities in their uniforms but not identical by any means. Just my 2c wort
  20. Thanks Daetrin I feel like I'm finally getting heard without just been seen as a trouble maker. I cannot stress enough how passionate I am about my costumes and whilst not being a 501st member, I am proud to have my costumes represented within the 501st. I have spent the last 7 years creating what I consider very accurate to what's seen on screen costumes. I have made many changes and improvements over the years and never afraid to accept that I get it wrong sometimes but always willing to update and change things that were not correct. That's all I've asked of the 501st. Sent fr
