Old Republic Trooper (Havoc Squad)

Recommended Posts

I was in the market to upgrade my TK armor from my trusty 12 year old FX, when AMX posted their Old Republic Trooper Havoc Squad bucket, and I knew then that I would have it.  Then I needed armor to go with the helmet.  So no new TK for me just yet.  Anyhoo, here are some piccies of the completed armor.  Sorry, no in-work pics, since any documantation went out the window as I became absorbed in my work.

 

Helmet: AMX

Armor: TZA

Neck seal: FOO

Soft goods: Sandeman

Blaster pistol: Sandeman

 

Some reference pics:

Still need to add some things, like the Blaster Cannon:

And the bandolier with ammo pouch:

This suit is a BEAST!  Absolutely comfortable, but I can't put on my own shoes. :blink:

I wish you guys could see this in person.  Clay's attention to detail combined with a cool costume and his size make it so that this thing takes names.

I've trooped with Clay in person and have to say it's probably one of the best armor builds I've ever seen. His attention to detail is amazing.

SOOOO want to build this kit some day! IMO, that 15 min trailer for The Old Republic is some of the BEST Star Wars material out there since Empire Strikes Back! These Havoc Squad troopers blew my mind! Oh yeah, the Jedi and Sith were kinda cool too, I guess..  :P

Yeah, the trailers give me goose bumps! I wish I could actually run around and tuck and roll like CG troopers, but we all know that's fantasy.

 

FYI this is a Rebel Legion approvable costume, not 501st.

Probably one of the best costumes ever in our garrison.  Top 3 for sure, and a true piece of art and craftsmanship.

Costume looks incredible.  Do Rebel Legion have a CRL for this one?

It is a Rebel approved costume so check their forums http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/index.php
