  1. Yes I saw that too. That was 4 days ago now. I messaged the owner and the official page. Multiple times. I see they have been active but no response back. I know I'm probably not the only person trying to get a hold of them but I think a quick reply to let us know whats up would be nice/professional. At this point, the 1 week that has turned into 4 weeks of waiting-as much as I wanted one, I may just go another route. I don't have anymore time to wait or ill end up buying something random at the toy store and spray painting it black lol. Very disappointing as Ive heard its a great product.
  2. I just did a search on the vetted vendors list. Dave is already on there so he has already been vetted. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/ This is his section noted below: Type: AM (Armor Master) Country: USA Contact: davesdarksidedepot@gmail.com Kit: ABS. All body armor components including face piece and ear pieces are .090 ABS. The one piece dome/back is formed using .125 ABS, as this piece is formed over a rather deep mold and anything thinner can cause thin regions which will eventually cr
  3. Dave's Darkside Depot is who I am using so I can vouch for them. If you do a search for AM armor you will see lots of 501st members swear by it. He recently took over sales I believe but AM armor has been around and is reputable. Right now I think its the AM 4.5 armor being offered so it has been getting better and better. I received my helmet kit very promptly and they are currently customizing my body armor for the height. AM armor is also a good option for taller or larger individuals because I believe lots of kits out there limit you on having to be in a certain height range. The shipping
  4. Thanks for all the advice! I will most likely go with a m38 E11 from Praetorian. While its not as accurate as I would like, its pretty darn close and the pros seem to outweigh the cons.
  5. Ok thanks for the info. They told me a week and its been 3. I'm slowly running out of time to wait so I may have to go with an alternative.
  6. Thanks Dave! Cant wait! I have a Darman neck seal. Still need the tights, the boots to come in, the armor, and the E11 blaster.
  7. I used some of this info for reference for my bucket. I dont know if I will be able to fit the tubing in though as I can barely get my head in now lol. As far as plasti-dip, if you sit the can in warm water for a bit it helps. Went on super smooth. I did 5 coats. Wait 20-30 minutes between coats. I went ahead and sprayed the teeth and eyes. There was a little overspray but it just rubs off. Took a little time to get the overspray off the outer teeth of frown. Velcro sticks to it great!
  8. Higher res inside view- I had wanted to put some sump pump tubing in to hide wiring but my head is so big that its a tight enough fit to get this thing on. I don't think I could if I keep adding items. The UKSWRATH sound system is amazing. I cant turn it up all the way without feedback but half way is plenty loud. Not sure I will need an additional speaker or not yet. The fans work great (also from UKSWRATH) but when I turn them on I cant hear anyone unless they are 3 ft away. Not sure I want to go the assisted hearing kit route. I think I will leave the fans off unless I notice bad fog up.
  9. Part 1 (Can only fit 500kbs of images so this will be in three parts) Update: Helmet nearly completed in 2 days!!! I got the helmet kit in from Dave's Darkside Depot. I was a bit intimidated to start. The helmet is asymmetrical and nothing seemed to want to fit together from going along with Eric Dyck's youtube tutorials. So I kinda followed along the best I could and then realized it doesnt have to be "perfect". So I gained confidence during the build to sand here and cut there. I assembled the helmet with only screws so it would keep its shape and inserted
  10. Does anyone know what is going on with Praetorian? I was in communication with them over 2 weeks ago on their FB page and they said they were almost done with their new batch of E11s. Then they fell off the face of the Earth and are nowhere to be seen and do not respond.
  11. Can anyone else post photos of their Praetorian blasters?
  12. I took the plunge head first and am starting my AM 4.5 Stunt build so I can be up and running prior to Halloween for its debut and who knows where else. For now, I am fulfilling a dream I have had for many years. Thus far as I do not have any pics to provide as of yet- Armor- I purchased the AM 4.5 armor kit from davesdarksidedepot. I am 6'4 and he will be customizing the armor for me. I would love to build it myself but I lack the tools and time to pull it off. I will however be tackling the bucket myself so he is sending that to me separately. Thus fa
  13. I am considering a Praetorian E11 Blaster. How easily do they bend? Are they extremely light?
