AM is actually not available atm, he's working on new improved molds

Also note his stuff is made to fit bigger guys (but smaller guys can use it, with a few mods to make it fit better, Pandatrooper is a great example)

Hi, Chelsea, Girlfriend Extraordinaire!

 

Two things to note here:

 

1. Contact every armoror and ask what their wait time for a trimmed suit is. They'll give you all sorts of information about cost and accessories it comes with. Don't speculate, make your decision after contacting them all.

 

2. Many armorers currently have wait lists through December. An un-trimmed kit he builds himself is likely to come sooner. Building is not a pain in the __, it's actually quite fun and addicting! It does take time and patience, but we can all do it :)

 

I like AM just fine, but I don't recommend it for your bf as he is of a smaller frame. AP, TM, RS, ATA should be right on - less trimming.

 

:0Lighten: At worst, what if you just got him a helmet and blaster for Xmas, and then gift him the rest of the money so he can choose his own and not have to be rushed for xmas?

to build your own blaster is generally in the $100-$150 range (upwards a long way if you use a real gun or scope)

Ingrid makes some good points here (but then she always does)

I was looking at Bluey's it's a bit expensive but I like the shooter with it,

I just didn't know how good his was.

This stuff is confusing xD ty so much for helping me btw ! :)

My armor is about as good as it gets.

"Centurion" means that it went through the "elite" and into the "ultra-elite" as far as accuracy.

 

I'll let other people tell about it here... ;)

And a Hyperfirm usually goes for $250.

yeah, that Centurion award means it's ultra-accurate

 

Just to slightly scare you, and so you know the amount of extra detail we're talking about

look at this list

To get in the 501st you have to do all the stuff in black

I had to do the blue ones too for my shiny Expert award

But look how many red things there are

And Bluey did them all

Also it's in ESB style, which is the best if you ask me

bluey how long would it take to get here do you think?

If I shipped it this afternoon or tomorrow... it'd possibly be there by next Friday.

 

I shipped a pack yesterday and they estimated arrival by Wednesday.

I bought Blueys! Thank you guys for all of your help! :D you all have been wonderful!

I can't wait till he opens it xmas day, hes gonna shucks bricks <3

 

INCREDIBLE gift! That's so amazingly cool.

 

My wife surprised me with armor last year, so I can say from experience that it's something he'll never forget!!!

May be little off topic but i wish my lady did think little like you.....

When i talk about my armor, or just try to show here it, she starts to laugh and dont understand a bit off why i did buy it.

Only the questions about why i did pay that much for it etc...

So if ya m8 like it that bad, he will just love you more now :)
