Hello from Japan. Been on the site for about a week now checking things out and asking questions in threads (probably in the wrong topics, lol).
I'm going to start my first build soon ( I hope in a couple months). Still debating on where to get it from, but I think I'll be getting an AM full kit from Trooper Gear. So far I think the most important thing I have read about is NOT buying kits from eBay! I've recieved some good tips so far though. Anyways, I'm going to try to get in to the 501st Japan Garrison with the TK armour, (saw them at the Tokyo Comic-Con, met Brian TK42114) and then maybe branch out from there. I am still researching where to buy most of the items I will need for the build, but I think that since I am in Japan, most of it will be bought online. I have a pretty solid list from Justjoseph63, and basically looking up prices online.
I've read some of the threads on the "read here first" link to get started but there is so much info there that I get side tracked going into different threads, lol.
Anyways, names Ken, working in Japan for the next couple of years, excited about starting this build (and the wife is on board with it!!!), and I'll be asking a lot of questions.
Here we go........
