  1. Talked to Joe by email .. even though shipping to Canada was 250$ .. I'm pretty they will work something out before this kit ships next year! I ordered 2x OT TK kits to Montreal and it was a grand total of 78$ for both, no broker fees or anything. That was shipped USPS. There's no reason they won't be able to ship close to that amount again. That being said, without the Tier pricing, I asked Joe what was the advantage of buying now. His answer was simple : once this introductory wave runs out, the price will go up. I clicked "Order", smiled and went to sleep.

    Uswrath's ANOVOS TK build (stunt)

    Cobalt .. Your chest is too high. It seems like you either attached it too high on the shoulder strips or your back is pulling the strips too far down from behind thus pulling the chest piece up in your neck abd bucket. Are the strips centered on your shoulders?

    Helmet Help

    Let me see .. MRCE and AP are both ABS (not 100% sure on CE though) .. so no need to paint. Price is around 100$ for MRCE .. while AP is around 250$ .. BUT you can have a flawed AP helmet kit for I think, aruond 160$ which, from the people here who got one, isn't even flawed to their eyes .. a few thin spot maybe, but I do have it on mine too anyway (not a flawed kit) and I definitely don't mind anyway. AP is much better looking then the MR one .. and the price diff is not enough to truly make a diff in the balance. Plus, pretty much all MRCE bucket we see on FX kit are completely off in the color ... Again, my opinion .. and I'm completely sold to AP too

    What Armour is this?

    It doesn't seem to be anything from what I see. Custom sculpt? Possibly some parts recast, but definitely not worth it. The chest plate seems pretty wrong to me .. the helmet has to be a recast. Arms seems to be super thin/straight (big tapered cylinder) ... Stay clear of this one if you want my opinion. Go AP or TE2.

    Thr Dreaded Rubies invasion!

    Guys, I know we all find this Rubie suit quite alarming .. but please be careful with the comments as this guy might be on this very forum .. Yes, I also find this suit completely off, but misinformation is truly a slave Leia! And that's why we're here!

    E-11 Scratch Build

    Martin, Totally legit question .. I've had to research that as well when I built mine .. Here's the measurement thread: http://forum.whitearmor.net/index.php?showtopic=1713&hl= http://forum.whitearmor.net/index.php?showtopic=838&hl= Here's my own build thread for a metal barrel blaster: http://forum.whitearmor.net/index.php?showtopic=1798&hl= http://forum.whitearmor.net/index.php?showtopic=2485&hl= That should be more than you need

    What other costumes do you have?

    Update with my finished TB!!!
  11. My thoughts ... - Are the drop box straps black? Shouldn't tehey be white? - The frown paint looks more ROTJ style then ANH to me. I thought this was important and only the bridges had to have paint? - The bicep parts looks a too big and low on the arm, I would strongly suggest padding them so that they fall more naturally on the arm. Also the trimming seems unequal on the left side, perhaps it's just how you velcroed it uneven on this particular session? - I didn't see your boots on any pics... On another note ... - I love your vocoder black area .. that can't be painted right? It's so clean! - I feel you too on the black showing everywhere, I'm at 6'3" myself! - Gotta love AP!

    AP ANH armor progress

    It's when I see this kind of pictures that I don't understand why people are still getting the FX kit!!! Curtis, my man, I've told you before, but you're the perfect fit for a perfect armor!!! Great work!!!

    Buy AP directly from AP .. don't go through revendor for nothing unless you really want a 3rd party involved taking more moeny from you PM me if you want the info.
  15. Heck .. In my opinion, this helmet looks 10 times better than a CE .. but again, I just hate the look of the MR CE helmet. I'd buy this one, and redo the eyes section (more trimming needed there) then do whatever you wanna do with it!
