  1. Not sure if this is the correct place, but couldn't find anywhere else for it. I want to know how, or what is the best (and safest) method to transport your Helmet. I know most people store it in the bins, if there is room, but for Troopers with smaller bins they can't fit the helmet. What cases/bags do others use. I was looking at a couple of Motorcycles helmet cases, but they seem too short (27cm to 30cm heigh). Thanks.

    Helmet Transport

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264005229719 I was thinking about these, but specs say 27cm high or 30cm high, which may be to short.

    What brand helmet bag, if you remember?
  5. Getting this started now. I plan to order my AM 2.0 KIT at end of the month. In the meantime, I ordered a pair of jodhpur shoes, they are black but I plan to repaint them white. For Centurian, I will have to add extra loop! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F112540209629

    BTCOST74's ANH TK STUNT build thread

    Order placed for screen accurate strapping from ImperialBoots.com.
  7. Greetings FISD members! My name is Brian Costello from the Northeast Remnant Garrison in New Jersey. I have been a Legion member for over two years. Currently I have a Tie Reserve Pilot, Imperial Navy Trooper (dress and standard), Imperial Warrant officer, and Bridge Crew. Like everyone here, my goal is to be a Stormtrooper. I have been doing extensive research and plan on purchasing an AM 2.0 ANH STUNT, because it will best fit me (6ft 250lbs). I plan to buy the armor at the end of November. I started working extra hours at my job to build up the funds and plan to get Centurian approved.
  8. I can't wait to start the build!

    My Brown Box Came!

    Looking good, just need to relocate your drop boxes. They should be near the edge of the plastic ammo belt.

    Sean’s AM 2.0 stunt build

    I recently received my AM 2.0 ANH Stunt BBB, this build thread is going to help me a lot. I am definitely going to be referencing this during my build!

    First full dress up ANH Stunt TK

    Looks like you are going ANH Stunt, if so then you want to replace the holster straps (attached to belt) with tan leather strap. Also your rivet caps on the belt are kind of thick, may need trimming.
  12. Have not posted in a while. Several weeks ago my BBB from AM 2.0 arrived, as did my black Chelsea boots, and bracket strap kit. My goal it to be 100% screen accurate ANH Stunt TK. Just waiting to order the strap kit from Imperial boots.

    BTCOST74's ANH TK STUNT build thread

    My armor arrived rather quickly. I ordered the screen accurate bracket system. Just have few questions. Been recently watching TrooperBay's TK build on YouTube. He is the only one I have seen use 3in thigh elastics, yet this is also on the RS model in What We Know About Strapping Thread. Why doesn't the Centurion level require this? Next, is it better to go Newey Hook and elastic on the shins or velcro? Lastly, why does it appear on the RS TK, seen in the "What We Know About Strapping" section, does it appear the strap brackets are bolted facing out and not on a return edge???

    New to Armor! How is AM?

    Victor is the guy running AM 2.0. I got my armor from him. Fast shipping. Good for us larger guys and gals. Just need time to build

    ANH Boots question

    I am going the same route. Already got the boots. One suggestion, don't use acetone on leather..it will dry it out and cause cracks. If you are buying leather boots there are several products made for changing the color with paint. One is a specific leather recolor prep solution. My boots are "Man Made Materials", which acetone should be okay with. Good luck

    Guaranteed Legion approval!!!NOT!

    BTCOST74's ANH TK STUNT build thread

    The boots came in the other day and are just perfect. No seems on front. Fit just fine, with room for inserts. Now I just need to prep and paint them.

    Dyeing Boots

    This is the route that I am going. Picked up a pair of black Jodphurs for $40, now I just need to prep and paint!
  20. FYI, if you get "real leather" boots, you can have them professionally stretched or they will stretch over time the more you wear them. This is one of the benefits of leather.

    Thanks for the tip about the snap on the shin and boot pull!
  23. I just watched a YouTube video with someone comparing a $10 Stormtrooper costume to a $1300 Stormtrooper costume. The $1300 was from Shepperton Design Studios. I was shocked by how bad it looked. The guy had it built to wear out of box, and there were so many inaccuracies.

    Cameras for eyes?

    I was wondering about this myself, if there is a way to build a HUD in the helmet.
