  1. This is the whole crux of my post. If you breakdown every single armor maker's method, the lines really begin to blur. Sometimes I just have to say to myself: "Just build, wear, and have fun." I need to concentrate on getting my gear ready for a troop at a Children's Hospital, and that's a HUGE reason for me to seek out any armor (Except Rubies and Jedirobe)
  2. Personally, I think the Anovos is very high-quality armor and I'm quite happy with it. I try to not get tied up in the politics too much, yet want to do the "right thing." If you buy the Anovos, you will most likely not regret it. That being said, as long as you're still on the fence, (and if you might want to spend just a little more), research the RS Props, and also "TM" (Troopermaster) armor. I'm still looking at both of those makers quite a bit and I know their stuff is awesome. I saw someone at a Comicon who said he had a TM and it was breathtaking. The helmets are maybe the best I've seen overall. But then, that's what some tell me about my Anovos.
  3. Thanks, that's a really good explanation. Now I'm dead-set on an RS.
  4. Second hand from someone who claimed to get it from an estate sale. The parts and box were full of dust. It's gonna be a Sandy for sure.
  5. RS props is where I'm gonna end up. I keep looking at TM as well, but RS Props will pull me in. having a "copy" makes me want an original even more. I'm sure I'll sell current gear and maybe a few of my Les Pauls to swing it. I'm dead set on building a Sandtrooper and finishing my Vader as well. Money, money, money.
  6. Yep, I'm pretty sure it is. It's definitely not ABS or PVC. I gave it a smell test by burning some scrap with a Dremel and it's definitely styrene. I just don't know if it's HIPS or not, kind of hoping its HIPS becasue any other styrene is going to be brittle overall. It looks a lot like this: http://chucrew.com/tk/tk.htm
  7. Here's what I have, but later I want to show how every single piece lines up perefctly as a match with Anovos. SO when I say "what have I got?" I'm wondering about both sets. It's clear that the pics posted below are recast, and I'm told from an RS Props suit. If it is an exact carbon copy to Anovos, then is ANovos a recast of RS Props? I don't know if I understand the recasting method and definitions, but I'm catching on. I understand there is an amount that is permissable and one that is shunned. The llnes begin to blur though, now that I have the Anovos. It all makes me want to save up for an actual RS Props or a TM, made with ABS.
  8. Dang it...took the pic out when I edited from my dang phone. I'll take some tonight. I'd like to show how it's a carbon copy (seemingly) of Anovos.
  9. Strap yourselves in and hold on to your hats because you're about to hear the story of a true idiot.<br> Before I came to FISD I bought a Rubies and thought it was pure dope. After a while some of the parts got severely damaged from first-time heat gun fixes and I bought spare parts from Jedirobe. In hindsight, doing that was like trying to clean ketchup off of my white shirt by using mustard. So now I have this sick, quasi-frankentrooper mess. I can't stand to even look at it after FISD removed the veil from my eyes and showed me the truth.<br><br> Hey, but that's not all folks; now it appears I have a recast that's thin styrene...long story that began with a litany. I was ignorant again. <br><br> Here's a condensed version of my query.<br><br> As I compared all parts to my Anovos parts they were completely identical? I haven't understood the Anovos lineage, but I find that these parts are a "carbon copy" of Anovos. It just confuses me.
  10. Well, that's why I ask "the masters" here, I'd prefer to move forward based on advice from your experiences. So far the best non-invasive technique may just be the white duct tape. I can see that working.
  11. ..or what about fiberglass coating on the inside?
