  1. Getting better is doubtful. That's never something that happened to me before. Many of my issues are permanent. As for people recomenting rs and tm. I'm housebound due to my Body Dysmorphia so there's no way I'll have enough for any armor in the foreseeable future. If I ever did get new armor, I'd get ata or mtk since they are smaller, then maybe get some tm parts like shoulder bells or chest and back to make it a bit more accurate. I've seen guys my height with rs and tm. The helmets are big and it looks like they can just barely get it to look right. Might be the Body Dysmorphia talking. But anyway I was mainly looking at helmets. Rs to me looks odd. Like everything's cut to shallow and looks a little different from the movie somehow. Idk. Their biker scout kits look awesome though. I'll be honest I've been wanting new gear that fits so long I'm starting to just resent the hobby. Like an ex you want but can't have.
  2. Thanks man. Yea, my current armor is fx. After my weight loss it's huge on me. So it doesn't really fit on me. And I'm only 5'6" so it was big to begin with. My helmet is a t/mc I think, so the details are really soft. Also I wanted a painted bucket like the originals. I didn't pay them yet, I was ganna pay him when it was complete. I've had the money just sitting there for over a year. Being short limits what I can get. Like rs and tm look huge on me. I'll tell you, it really kind soured the whole thing. To wait like 5 or 6 years to be able to get something then have it fall apart last minute. Makes it seem unrealistic that I'll ever get a helmet I like. I was thinking about getting an rs biker scout instead, but it's euros, so I don't have enough for that unfortunately.
  3. Thanks so much. I might delete my first post, as I feel like it sounds whiny. Idk. But yea, thanks for the kind words.
  4. I'm sure lots of people will say this is a dumb post. I can't even beleive I'm making it, but I feel like I have to say something to someone. These past two years have been indescribably difficult. Having to stop two separate career paths due to two different injuries, health issues, I've developed serious body dysmorphia. Seemingly all the things I've worked for or enjoyed have blown up in my face. I tried to find an escape, but even they are going wrong somehow. I was on a weight loss journey for several years. I lost 55lbs, but instead of feeling proud of how I look my hairline started to recede (I'm in my late 20s). Saved a year for a PS4 Pro, but can not play it due to health reasons, so I tried to buy a high end transformer, it came broken, which leads me to the latest thing and reason I made this post. Obviously Star Wars has always been dear to me. I've been on this forum for a long time. I've always dreamed of having a helmet/armor that looked like it came straight out of the movie. For years I've been dreaming about getting a more accurate bucket. There was one particular maker who's helmets looked the best to me. I won't name names as I'm still a big fan of theirs, but after years of not having the money, I ordered a helmet from him over a year ago. When I was a child my parents got me this gold coin set, so it would grow in value, and I could have some money when I grew up and they were worth more. It finally came time to sell them, AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW! It was just enough for my dream helmet. Wow! This would be the closest I could get to traveling back to my childhood and getting the helmet I daydreamed about and drew on my elementary school books and homework. Sappy I know. Well 6 months ago he finished a helmet... only it was nothing like what I asked for (supposed to be a subtle chipper build). No big deal. He finally started a new one recently, and it looked so good!! Then I get an email that there was a mistake while working, helmet was ruined. It was hard enough getting the other ones made, so a third seems impossible/rebuild seems impossible. I wanted to make an awesome post about how I finally got the helmet I wanted after over a decade of being on this forum. But it's not happening now. I know it probably sounds dramatic, but I was already depressed and was so excited about this. I feel like the kid inside me finally died, and this was the final nail in the coffin. It's all lost its luster. Sorry to rant. I just had to tell someone that could relate. Also I don't want to sound like I'm bad mouthing this maker. Very talented, which is why I'm not mentioning names.
  5. Hey, what make is this armor? Is it TM?
  6. Christine and Bradley, what kind did you get? I have kind of a wide foot so I hope the don't make them too narrow.
  7. Thanks so much, ive gone back and forth on if I should get new armor or not, as I think TM armor would look big on me. My second choice would be ata, but it's not quite as accurate in my eyes. But It's nice to know I could get some extra height if I need it. And if it works the same for me that would probably make me almost 5'9" in armor. If anyone else has some pics please share them.
  8. Look good! Got any pictures of them on?
  9. I have been thinking about getting using shoe lifts in my boots. I am 5'6''-5'7'' and it would be nice to get up to 5'8''-5'9''. Anyone have any pictures of how they look with lifts on? Does it get tiring standing in them? I'm also curios what kind of lifts you use and if you had to order bigger boots.
  10. This isn't a lead or anything, but I was upgrading/doing maintenance on this early 70s receiver and it reminded me of this. Just thought it would be fun to share since I don't see things in a line like that very often. Not the same obv, but I was excited when I saw in nonetheless.
  11. That's not true. The ships looked more realistic in the original trilogy then the cg force awakens ones.
  12. Sorry if this has been posted already. And I don't want to start an argument, but I had to get this off my chest. Anyone else enfuriated by this guy?<br><br> "It won't stand up to HD treatment" but the originals are already in HD. As a huge lover of the ANH TKs all the bumps make it seem more real to me. If you got a real gun used in WWII I'm sure it wouldn't have some bumps, tape, and a repair or two. Just makes it seem more real. Feels like making a movie about Nirvana and saying "Yea Kurts real guitars were a little too beat up. So we made them better." Idk maybe I just care to much about small details.<a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='<a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4hV-6I2nxGQ%27' class="bbc_url" title="External link">https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4hV-6I2nxGQ'>https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4hV-6I2nxGQ</a></a>
  13. No wonder it fits so wel haha. I'm so jealous of your height haha.
