  1. I would be curious to see how the FO armor costumes at Disneyland/world are constructed. They looked incredible to me while they were marching around but I didn't look THAT close. They must be built (at least a little) for comfort and durability , being as the weather can be extreme (mostly hot) and they are getting daily repetitive use. Or maybe they are made as cheaply as possible and just chucked out when they start cracking at the yoke.
  2. I'm confused on what I'm getting. for $600 you get the whole armor? so gaskets, velcro,screws and snaps are the other $250? Hopefully all those that paid for full sets will get them before they start parting them out. I'm thinking that its a high margin product once the bucks are paid for so perhaps they are just digging out of the hole they seem to be in? Anyway, I prefer the TLJ helmet and have one on order so I for one am relieved its a TLJ codpiece.
  3. Those instructions seem pretty good as far as instructions go. Beyond that, the gaskets on the model at the end look better to me than the ones that were shown in the newsletter teasing imminent release.
  4. So the boxes are resin rather than ABS? are those joins also seamless? Also not sure I would trust,say, an E600(0) glue to hold the resin which must be heavier than an ABS counterpart. Are they glossy white resin? so many questions! I want my BBB! -kicks dirt- And my questions were answered by getting past page 2. oops.
  5. I am hoping the gaskets were delayed because they don't look so great in the pics, all baggy and not very "gaskety" like a neck seal, and that they are fixing them. Gaskets are available elsewhere by folks with good product and reputation. Hope their sewing fingers are ready!
  6. I jumped on the FOTK kit within minutes of receiving the "exclusive" offer to get a kit due to cancellations. Still hoping I get one of the kits being trimmed and not bumped to the next run scheduled for next winter. That being said, no word on my TLJ helmet now 2 weeks past shipping window AND I really need to build my OT kit and helmet I got from Anovos a year ago , so waiting a bit more is ok with me. Just wish they were more communicative and just gave us the hard truth as in "we promised we'd trim them and we have a team of 2 trimming 600 kits, should be done Winter of 2020".....or whatever that truth may be.
  7. In a post I read on FB a recipient stated that they were asked if they wanted to wait for the gaskets and helmet (as they are not ready) or if they wanted the armor now, separately. So it would seem an email went out.
  8. Wow, did they come trimmed? Did you get an email saying it was on the way or did it just show up?
  9. Hopefully Anovos will get these shipped out hastily. I'm excited and I don't even know if I'll be included in this run!
  10. I got he same canned response on the FOTK kits, but was told also that the TLJ helmets are delayed again so hopefully it is true. That being said they gave themselves the rest of the year to get them out........
  11. Anyone "in the know" hear anything? We are (only a couple days) beyond the latest shipping window, but this armor wasn't the only thing in that window.
  12. I missed the initial offering on these, then decided I wanted one and ordered from a place that fell apart THE DAY I ordered but was lucky enough to get my money back, then I got the email from ANOVOS as I put myself on the interest list forever ago when people were dropping out. I'm really hoping I get one of these and my TLJ helmet. Im trying not to get too excited in case I end up on the next run which is a year out.
  13. Anovos is not taking orders, but I see more than a handful of people have cancelled after waiting so long. I figured I'd get on the interest list and perhaps when they start shipping I can get in on one. I thought they had shipped and almost lost some money on ebay, but got that back, only to try and get one from KB and now get that money back. There are worse problems to have in life, but I want to be a FO trooper. Or 25 again.....
