  1. No, I am actually not saying that at all. All plastic will yellow and nothing can stop it. You can restore the white with ArmorWhite, but its not permanent. From time to time you will have to re apply the solution to keep your old armor white. Look at the armor in the Lucasfilm archives. Its all yellow. Look at your old computer from back in the day... its yellow. That's why all computers are BLACK now, lol... All ABS plastic turns yellow over time. Does not matter if its in the sun or not, it will still yellow. The sun and heat of any kind will quicken the yellowing however. Sooooo if you troop alot then your armor will turn yellow faster. Warm parts of your body will also cause the armor to turn yellow. A UV additive can be added to the plastic to fight off yellowing, but it doubles the cost pf the plastic. So the armor prices would be much higher as a result. PVC or Kydex would be a better plastic for armor. Kydex is what Lucasfilm used for the SE armor. Its still white. Kydex pricing is insane however... PVC is not glossy nor is Kydex... The struggle continues.....
  2. All plastic will yellow. Basically you have to store it in a cool place, away from light and any source of heat. I wonder what type of bag? Maybe thats it? Could also be the batch of plastic. Armorwhite usually does the trick. Paint it on and let the armor set out in the sun for the day... thats it...Rinse it off and your done. Something else I just thought of.... If you are out trooping then the armor is exposed to the UV's and will yellow faster than a helmet that is just stored at home away from light and heat.
  3. I hate the hooks. If you are by yourself its a hassle to take the shins off.
  4. Congrats! I would only trim the inside of the thighs if you have to...
  5. You have made some great progress buddy!
  6. If ya cant deliver then don't offer it up... This is an old issue with makers everywhere...
  7. I can still make them. What maker is your helmet?
  8. A seller on ebay named cassini_sunset is posting listings for armor using images from other listings and has admitted to me that he does not actually have pictures of his own product. Obviously this person is a scammer and getting ready to rip off an unsuspecting noob. Spread the word! He currently has Stormtrooper armor, bikerscout, First Order armor for sale and its all fraudulent. 2 of the images are from MTK armor listings....ITS NOT MTK ARMOR! BUYER BEWARE!!!!
  9. Back from the dead!!!! Its the ROTJ decal thread!!! No I dont make them specifically for ROTJ anymore. I mean I still have the files and I could make you some but there is not alot of demand for them so I stopped selling them a while back. I DO however sell ESB decals on trooperbay.com that are very close to ROTJ.
  10. Thanks Paul. I had some choices to make and I figured I would shoot this across the bow and see whats what. It seems that even as popular as Anovos has been, troops still prefer the fanmade sets and that is awesome. The improvement posts are off topic but thats generally how it goes, lol. I was just curious what might need to be changed. Thanks for your input everyone.
