  1. I saw that these chelsea boots are on sale at Kohls right now. They seem like a good possibility for converting to white, and don't have any seams on the front. There is even an extra $10 off with code. Of course, they are imitation, not real leather, though. What do you guys think? https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-2911525/apt-9-edgewood-mens-chelsea-boots.jsp?color=Black&prdPV=4
  2. Thanks for sharing the picture of the original helmet, Paul. You mentioned you have a scrap of accurate trim, also. Would you mind sharing a picture of the end of that trim, too? Then we can better see how it compares to the other ones in this thread.
  3. Paul, would you share a picture of your small piece of old trim that was perfectly matched to the original? While it isn't needed for this thread, that would be awesome for us all to see!
  4. Gazmosis's holsters are a bit more expensive, but they are another amazing option. Reach out to him if you're interested.
  5. I've seen this blaster in person and it looks amazing. The details are really awesome. The T-tracks he mentions fit perfectly and are very snug into the blaster.
  6. Don't be nervous. You're in the right place to learn. The best thing is for you to carefully watch the many build threads and learn from those who have gone before you. If you'd like to see both what to do and not to do, look at the centurion application forum. You will see many example of very well built suits--but even on those, occasionally small details need to be corrected before approved. In fact, a lot of the same small issues tend to repeat, so you can learn a lot by studying them and not making the same small mistakes. I'm sure with your research and help from others here, you will do great.
  7. I bought one of these for my son, so I know what you're looking for, but I can't seem to find any on eBay anymore.
  8. Someone who knows the helmets better will have to tell you more definitively, but at first glance it seems not right. It doesn't seem to have the "duck face" quite right and little serials seem "off" to my untrained eye. As far as the armor, it looks terribly made. Look at the pictures at the end of the guy going on a date (?) with a stormtrooper chick and singing. There are deep seams on the side, mis-sized parts everywhere, pieces with different colors, pieces with the wrong shape, and other problems. It seems the way Rubies is for the OT stormtrooper--nice at first glance, but terrible when you look closely.
  9. Skicom, see all the other posts in this very thread warning to stay away from jedirobe.com.
  10. The Dave M decals on Trooperbay will work perfectly on ATA helmets.
  11. No problem. Feel free to copy the links into your first post, if you'd like. Thanks for finding these screens. They are awesome!
  12. Oh classic! In the one with the HWT firing, the guy next to him has his dropbox caught inside his thigh piece!
  13. These should be viewable: These really are high res (except for the last one.) Zoom into them and you can see some amazing detail in them. I never noticed that the heavy weapon trooper has a camera monopod on the back of his rifle. There is a lot to see about the seams and other little details of the armor in these, too. For example, you can see the legs have faint rectangle shapes on the inside, and many of the biceps appear to have shims on the inner seam. In one, you can clearly see the overlap of the forward bicep seam, and in the same photo, you can see the crotch armor is cracked at the top. (HWT trooper with the normal rifle.)
  14. By the way, I thought about this more, and it doesn't even have to be extra cloth of the shirt. You could attach additional cloth to extend the sleeve with the velcro. Or you could even just sew on a velcro strip onto the overlap area. I'm not sure which way would work better, but either way you wouldn't need a bigger shirt then.
  15. Here is a really rough drawing of what I mean. In this the black is the cloth and the red is the rubber weatherstrip.
