  1. Congrats John! GREAT build you have there! Now time to get you your EI and Centurion rockers.
  2. Congrats on your 100th troop today, Tarkan! I'm super bummed that I was unable to be there in attendance. I would have been honored to have assisted you in kitting up for the occasion. I'm here in the Fort Lauderdale area this same week every year, so perhaps I can make it happen in the future. Big props on the big 100, brother! Keep up the amazing work!
  3. Welcome Mark! You’re absolutely in the right place for building your very own TK armor! On the one hand, it’s not the faint of heart, but on the other hand, nearly anybody can do it, even without crafting skills. So many veteran troopers have contributed to the amazing wealth of knowledge on this forum, and as Jonatan mentioned, research is key, but luckily whenever you ask a question most likely somebody will respond with ample detail and perhaps even photo references. We’re here to help you on your journey! And also, I’m pretty sure my gloves and flexible hand guards were around $35. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Love it! Lookin’ great, trooper! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Always great to see an EI app, and especially an ESB one too (with the stitched guards too)! Good luck, Angie! You're looking good!
  6. There is no single answer as “white” plastic can be any manner of shades of white. The temperature of white plastic varies by maker, and sometimes even by batch that a maker produces. You might try buying some smaller cans of white to test out and compare. Alternately, bring in some scrap abs plastic to an automotive paint shop and have them produce a color match. Or just paint all your armor, both black and white, with your white paint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Congrats sir, and welcome to EI! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hello Steve, and welcome! Always neat to see a three-digit TKID! OG indeed!
  9. Excellent choice with a stunt build, and either AM or AP will be good and durable armors appropriately sized for you. I believe both those vendors can also provide their helmets preassembled, I’m sure for an added cost. I suspect that your past costuming experiences place you a step ahead of many new builders, such as myself when I first started my journey in 2019. It’s a learning experience for all of us, but FISD is full of so many good resources and helpful troopers, I KNOW you’ll have all the help you’ll need! Once you receive your shiny white plastic you should start a build thread where you post lots of photos and any questions you can ever think of. You can also find some helpful build threads of those specific armor makers on the Resource thread that Mario linked to above; scroll down towards the bottom of the main post before the comments.

  10. Welcome, Adam! It's always great to hear for a new TK in the making! Let us know what the factors are in your armor decision, and we can help you out! DDD (AM armor) and AP are known to be able to accommodate regular and larger-sized troopers, while Imperial Surplus and WTF is a better fit for regular or small-sized troopers. Of course, those are generalizations, and nearly all can be sized up or down with some work. Are you leaning towards an ANH-Stunt build, which is what most of us TKs are, or at least start with?
  11. Welcome, Vascod! Let us know what questions you have and we will provide guidance along your journey to become a stormtrooper!
  12. Welcome, Jason! If you hadn't already seen it, our armor vetted vendor list below lists several other makers as well. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them-updated-2023/
  13. Welcome, Seth! Glad to have you here at the home of shiny white plastic!
  14. And it's near the very top of our LIST OF VENDORS TO AVOID. Our advice would be to stay clear.
