  1. TK-77779 requesting full access. http://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=23096 I hope I setup the link correctly Thank you, Sean Christophiades
  2. I am interested, what does the ETA look like, and does it include a buckle? Thank you, Sean
  3. Thanks Kevin for this post. Just received a kit from SurfInTroop with your kit. I just applied on fb and am looking to gain approval to complete the build. Thank you, Sean
  4. Thanks you all for your support. I am attending an event with a local squad (Inland Empire) tomorrow for a meet and greet. And then I am attending 2 armor parties ( Los Angeles and Orange County) on Saturday and Sunday in the Southern California Garrison. After this weekend, I should be able to make an informed and important decision on armor. Thank you again for all your support, so that I didn't make an important mistake. Sean
  5. Thanks Steve for the vote of confidence. The more I am on here, the more I realized I could have made a major mistake on purchasing armor. Lots of info from lots of people, yet it has been great advice from friendly people, who I haven't even met. This tells me what a great choice I have made to try to join the 501st. Thank you, Sean
  6. I looked at the details of the pictures, and they look like I might need to do some basic modifications, as I am not too handy to begin with for slight size adjustments. It seems close to begin with for basic approval, and possibly a second level in the future. Thank you all for your thoughts so far, http://www.ebay.com/itm/291899015195?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Sean
  7. Thanks Jim, I will definitely stay away from that one, what about this one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/291899015195?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Thank you, Sean

  10. $1,250 + tax? For a newbie who is very much the opposite of handy. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, as I have read many threads about staying away from Ebay. Thank you, Sean Pictures are of actual items that you will receive. The Imperial Stormtrooper: One of the most iconic characters in cinematic history, and was an instant classic in 1977 when they blasted onto the silver screen. Forty years later, it's still one of the most easily recognizable icons of the modern era of sci-fi. With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story coming out this December, this style of Stormtrooper costume will look impressive, most impressive for the premiere of this tie-in to A New Hope. 2017 will mark the 40th anniversary of A New Hope, which, as noted, this costume is detailed to be screen-accurate for. This costume will be perfect for any celebration of the 40th anniversary. Also, Halloween is extremely close. This costume is great for costume parties, trick-or-treating with the kids, and costume contests. Wherever you go, you are certain to draw attention as you "move along." This armor is great for conventions and costume parties year-round. Formal white armor never goes out of style and is also perfect for display in anyone's geek or man cave. Note: This kit was a 501st approved armor and has since been retired but still surpasses required standards for approval when worn properly. There is no need to get a kit that you're going to have to buy tools, clamps, then trim, glue, paint, detail, make harnesses, etc. This item comes already done and is 1:1 scale, but some adjustment may be necessary for the wearer. Shipping and Handling; Boxed and Ready To Ship!! (with fast shipping!!!!) Shipping cost is free but will be Priority and includes tracking with insurance. WILL NOT SHIP OUTSIDE OF THE CONTINENTAL (LOWER 48) UNITED STATES. Sorry for any inconvenience to international customers, but items like this are difficult to deal with both in customs and shipping. This Ebay Listing Contains: Helmet properly assembled and hand-painted details (no cheap decals) to match A New Hope (Episode IV) Stormtrooper, Screen-accurate helmet cast from a screen lineage helmet. Helmet is 1:1 scale screen-accurate to A New Hope stunt (standard stormtrooper) style: accurate hand-painted details proper rubber gaskets (neck s-trim) Hovi mic tips (screen accurate) custom interior finish helmet is made of white ABS 0.80 gauge cast from a screen lineage helmet proper green flat lenses Armor is white ABS 0.80 gauge. This is a high-quality polymer-based material that requires no paint and is basically worry-free. The movie armor was made from the same materials. The armor is ready-to-wear and has a snap harness instead of Velcro, because Velcro sometimes fails. 1:1 Scale Armor Included: chest plate back plate kidney plate ab plate butt plate left and right shoulder bells left and right biceps left and right forearms left and right thighs left and right shins/greaves left and right hand plates with screen accurate gloves thermal detonator with metal belt clips ammo belt with proper details, drop boxes with screen-accurate cloth belt hand-made, screen-accurate leather holster (screen-accurate mounted to belt) Stormtrooper E-11 Blaster: Accurately detailed to A New Hope style and battle-worn paint job for authenticity!!! (please see photos) Are you ready to be impressive, most impressive? Now is your chance to look like you stepped right out of the galaxy far, far away with this Stormtrooper armor!!!! Please note that you will need a black undersuit ("UnderArmor" style/compression workout wear does great), black neck seal, and white boots to complete your ensemble.
  11. Thank you Jim, I appreciate the info. I am looking to go to 2 different armor parties this weekend, probably about an hour away drive each, to try to get some more info as well. I am leaning toward Walt's right now. Sean
  12. Hi All, I have just finished reading through all 48 pages of this thread, and the getting started threads, and introduced myself. I live in SoCal and am looking to do my first build. I am budgeting $1,000 to $1,500, which seems about right from what I have been reading. I have looked at a couple of websites, Anovos and RS Propmasters, both of which are vetted vendors. I was at Disneyland a couple days ago, and saw a fully completed kit, minus boots and a blaster for about $1,800. And then they told me that they are supplied by Anovos. Anovos seems to have a good kit for $650, but they said I would need to do the assembly. I am not that handy as a single Dad to 3 children (which 1 is very crafty), and I have friends that are handy/crafty. I am 5'7" about 165 pounds, with a slight beer gut. I am looking to at first getting to the basic approval guidelines, and eventually to obtain the next level. Any recommendations? Thank you, Sean
  13. My name is Sean and I live out in the Inland Empire in Southern California. I have loved Star Wars since I saw Episode 4, at the age of 6, at a drive-in theater (we don't seem to have many of these anymore, and I just dated myself). I also have the love for Disney, and was happy when both companies merged. I remember first beginning to fall in love with anything Star Wars, while playing with my action figures. I eventually worked at Disneyland on the original Star Tours attraction, and my love for Star Wars grew even more in the 90's. And as of late, my 3 children are also following in my love of Star Wars. I love that I might eventually be able to give back to the community, as I did while I worked at Disney and other employers, but while enjoying Star Wars with other similar loving people. I am just now beginning my research on building a costume, though I am a single dad who is not crafty (luckily I have friends and children that are), and looking to budget about $1,000 to $1,500 to start. I have read many of the threads so far, and it seems I am lucky to have found a group that I can increase my knowledge with and have fun at the same time. Looking forward to some great future memories and meeting some nice people, Sean
