Hi there,

 

Im a newbie to FISD and this is the 1st beginner thread I started to read and really impressed on the info provided on some of the costume props makers. Very useful for newbie like myself who is considering getting the right armor kit.

 

Much to learn from the Imperial war veterans here.

 

 

Welcome aboard Xilian, make yourself at home. Do as much research as you can (Look at the How Tos, tips, and the different builds) that is the key to help you find the right kit for you.

 

 

BTW, it is customary to introduce yourself and tell a little about yourself and how you found this forum in the New Member Introductions Section. This is so the members here can welcome you and get to know you little bit.

First and foremost...   There is no one 'best' armor. There is a 'best' armor for *you* depending on a few factors: 1) Your budget 2) What your body size is (yes, different armors

And, here it is. I'm the black pauldron wearing TD playing tight end on the right.  We ended up playing 4 downs or so before we were called back.  Wish someone had a video...  

Daniel, Paul, Tony & Joseph: thank you all for the advice and letting me know about the sale. I ordered a kit from RS :)

Hi RogueTrooper, thanks for guiding me to the introduction counter. Luckily Vader was not there to force choke me.

 

Before this, I was checking out some stormtrooper armor kits from Ebay...luckily the info from this thread was helpful to allow me to avoid getting this kit from Ebay. I dont want to end up paying big bucks and getting a kit which is not what it seems.

 

Is there a thread where I can check out the various parts to a TK armor?

You can find all info/tutorials in the "Reception Center"

 

Here is the first link to get you started: Chest Armor

 

You will find the rest of the "various parts" links on the left side of the "Chest Armor" page link I gave you.

 

Also, here is the links to the 501st CRL:

 

501st CRL ANH Stunt

 

501st CRL ANH Hero

 

501st CRL ESB

 

501st CRL ROTJ

 

501st CRL Incinerator Trooper

 

501st CRL HWT-Heavy Weapons Trooper

 

I like the way the 501st site has a fast "one page" break down of all the "various parts" ( info with the image). I think it helps people new to this understand it quickly. That is why I gave you the 501st.com links too. ;)

We don't have enough reports of Cfo from the field yet, and we don't want to add anyone until we have a series of positive reports. Usually this is via build threads, and so far the only one I've seen start one is on MEPD (Juan doing an SE sandtrooper).

That makes complete sense, Paul.

I'm sure they'll be able to build a reputation quickly.

FX is no longer made - AM is its replacement. And yes, AM does come in black.

 

About the only chance you'll have at finding a black FX armor kit is if someone is selling one secondhand. Best thing to do for that is monitor the For Sale areas at the FISD, Spec Ops, and the main Legion board.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think troopersupplies is the tkboots and pauldron seller.

 

I believe he is too but that is where I got my AM armor back in October. And his email was replaced by troopergear.

Hi there....looking over the thread you say that TM is NOT for tall troopers - I'm looking at upgrading from FX to TM (the thighs are a good 3-4" longer) but you say it's not for the very tall trooper....what's very tall?

 

I'm 6' 2"

I too am 6'2" and I am having a heckuva time making a confident, informed decision. Right now, I'm split between ATA and AM. I'd really like to do a glossy Death Star TK. I am fearful with my height, I will have a lot of black at the knees. Anyone care to weigh in?
