  1. Found a cool link in one of the Facebook groups, for those who need the terms and conditions at the time of preorder https://web.archive.org/web/20160915000000*/www.anovos.com/pages/terms-and-conditions
  2. Ah crap, they got a PPP loan. - https://www.cnn.com/projects/ppp-business-loans/businesses/anovos-productions-llc
  3. KB is good, you wouldn't be disappointed. BSP has some sharper details, but it has more inaccuracies that still need to be fixed, and communication can be difficult.
  4. If you haven't, I'd keep reaching out to whomever you used for payment (paypal or bank). Sometimes they may cover you even if past the protection time period (some have had luck with getting their refunds from Anovos). A few of us picked up the Anovos TLJ buckets from bigbadtoystore and have shown them to those looking to get helmets. Most will probably go that way, just for simplicity (the rest of the costume is hard enough!).
  5. So to make the TD fit inside the slots, I had to make some modifications Now it fits in the slots, though its going to require quite a bit of filling. And then theres the yoke. BSP did not make a return edge along the inside. To solve this, I left about a half inch during trimming, with the idea of bending the excess trim to create a return edge. So with a hairdryer, a small set of pliers, and a lot of patience, I've got a substitute return edge. It will be reinforced on the inside, and smoothed on the outside
  6. ABS paste will be used later, hopefully to cover up bondo in the seams. Torso work tonight, doing test fitting Trimmed. Looking at possibly cutting further down for the neckline, so I traced a possible cut. Back of the Thermal Detonator to be matched with the rails which....doesn't fit. Looks like I'll modify the inside rails. The middle piece, which joins the yoke and back plate. Trim lines get a bit faint here Applying pressure to line up fitment with the yoke, which is pretty good. Seam will need to be filled., with reinforcement underneath. And then lining up the back piece. Not sure if it should be place all the forward to the edge, or it its slightly away from the edge, as shown.
  7. First up, a forearm! I start by doing a quite, rough trim about 1 inch away from the main cut line. I use a sharpie to mark my initial cut lines Then using smaller scissors, I cut to the trim line. 90% of the Forearm pulls are very sharp, with the trim lines very clear. In a few spots though, I could only fine the line in direct light, using the glossy reflection of the ABS to fine the line, and trace with a pencil. And then some tape to check the fitment. Looks pretty sharp Okay, about 1/3 trimmed! Finished the night with the calves
  8. Now that the armor is finally here, its time to start the long awaited build! Main info: Armor - Back Stage Props Helmet - Anovos (The Last Jedi) Gaskets - GeekyPink Gloves - Endor Props Boots - Imperial Boots Belt - JAFO Volunteered to help sort the 16 kits arrived from BSP, which arrived Friday. It took 4 hours for us to get them properly sorted after inventory. Unfortunetly, there were some missing items in the shipment, such as 6 of the 7 AB boxes, a few belt boxes, and our Riot Shields. However, enough parts have arrived to start the build. Here's 7 kits sorted for pickup
  9. 16 kits showed up today in 5 massive boxes, and few of us got together to sort them out. Pulls looks good, plenty of detail. They all had to be separated for inspection and inventory (sadly no parts list from BSP). We got 16 of everything that arrived, but it seems most AB boxes and some belt boxes were not shipped. Also missing were the promised riot shields. We're reaching out to BSP to see if we can get those shipped out quickly..
  10. To be fair, BSP was supposed to deliver their kits in June 2018, and have gone through significant delays with poor communication. Glad they're finally going out, looking forward to mine!
  11. As I read it, it ships out in 1-2 business days, but takes 6-9 days for delivery (ground). I also pulled the trigger. When it doubt, double down, right?
  12. Its a intense race between my BSP kit that was supposed to be delivered in June 2018 and my Anovos kit!
  13. I saw that somebody was able to order the Anovos TLJ bucket at GE for a bit over $400, and got it shipped in a few weeks. Are they still being sold with fast shipping at GE, or just armor?
  14. An Andre from another facebook group also received their kit w/ white pauldron, so it sounds like small waves go out. Perhaps when they get a large shipment, 3/4 goes to Disneyland, with 1/4 going to preorder fulfillment?
