  1. I know of two vendors that are more recommended than others. One is Jimmiroquai and the other is KB props. Both you could find on Facebook Jimmiroquai is Jim Tripon. That’s where my armor came from. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Welcome! Your best resources to start will be found here https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/ Definitely take your time in researching vendors. These pages will help: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/19329-where-what-and-whom-to-avoid-when-buying/ It’s definitely worth reasoning where to start and which vendors would best help out. From there you can check out many build threads that exist and start your own so the members of the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment can assist you along your way! Finally there are a few different FOTKs with the main ones in difference being the Force Awakens (TFA) and the Last Jedi (TLJ) there are some minor differences, but they do matter, so based on which one you want you’ll want to plan based on the CRLs TFA - https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_-_First_Order TLJ - https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_TLJ There also the executioner variant on the crls if that’s where you are going as well. Edit - I just reread you wanted to do TFA, so fantastic! Glad to see more FOs. Anywho, welcome again and we are glad to assist you in your build process!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Currently there is no CRL for the Mandolorian. That’s something that once it is made then it would be something that could be approved and an armor that would be troopable. That being said for personal costuming and nothing 501st you could easily build a Mandolorian costume and then when the CRLs come around make the necessary adjustments to match them. I plan on waiting for an official CRL though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It’s all business at this point. Vendors that don’t meet expectations will lose and sadly fail. Those that do will gain what the others lost. I don’t want vendors to not succeed, but at the same time services need to be provided and met in a business. I wish there were more FOTK vendors who were solid out there. This kit seems to be the most difficult to meet demand.
  5. Welcome and congrats! Very cool picture too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Welcome! For Centurion you’ll need rubber gaskets, is highly recommend getting some fabric ones for general wear though because they will be more breathable, but it’s all up to you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I think that’s great to have another FOTK nonetheless. When I finished I think there were only 17 officially approved, so it’s cool you were able to get approved and we have another in the legion!
  8. That’s for sure. I mean I have fiberglass armor and even I still have maintenance I need to do It’s just part of the thing overall.
  9. I’d be more tempted to pro paint it, however I keep seeing there’s some stress areas that crack and fear that pro painting still won’t fix those spots which I hate. I’m sure there will come a day where I retire this armor and then display it and replace it, but for now I will keep updating and fixing. I’ve got things ready to go fix wise and adjustments too. Now just need to paint and prepare for IX.
  10. Following from here! So far looking like some good work!
  11. I know I just commented on your other post, but I agree and think your armor is looking great! Glad to hear you were approved!
  12. Hey Chris, I’m not sure if anyone in the other area responded much. I’ve heard mixed reviews. I have a fellow garrison member as well who has the 850 armor and he’s not been very happy with it. He’s felt it’s flimsy and he’s had to do a whole lot of maintenence and work to get it to a point that it was approved and stays looking good. So if I were to say much, I’d likely exercise caution there, but then again some others have said it’s been great. So they’ve got a mix of reviews.
  13. Hey @Luke starwars, I’ve definitely kept up on some of the ongoing with the armors for FOTKs, even now years after release it seems there’s a very small supply of suppliers for it and there have been many who have run into challenges in providing the armor. This being said definitely check the approved vendors list. Specific to the FOTK from my experience: Of the vendors out there that I know is consistently proven to be most reliable Jimmiroquai is the one that seems to fit that. (That’s my armor by the way) It is fiberglass, so not what everyone always wants. There’s KB props that offers kits, however I’m not sure on how long it may take, most of those who have recently purchased from this vendor say 4 weeks. There are a few others who are emerging with kits however I’d recommend verifying them on the approved vendors list first as again a lot of struggles some members have had come from reasons as to why some are and some are not on that list.
  14. Hello there! Looking forward to a build thread in which we can help guide and see your progress as you get there!
  15. Always great to see active troopers appear here. Welcome!
