Darth Aloha's Anovos ANH TK Build

Recommended Posts

After finally getting home from work travel I am now ready to deal with this Anovos purchase.

 

Why did I buy this? Because $350 seemed too good to be true. Also I like building armor. 

 

WIll it fit me? NFW. 

 

What the hell will I do with it? I think it is bound for a mannequin. Or maybe sell it locally to someone who really needs it. 

 

Will my whole build thread consist of asking myself questions and then answering them? Quite possibly.

I'm going to open the box now and start trimming.

It's a Hawaiian outrigger canoe racing paddle.

 

As an aside... You sure got a pretty mouth.

You can? Are you in my house?

 

Speaking of smells. This Anovos kit smells of burnt abs.

I'm from Toronto, but prefer Irish beers... Or micro breweries.

Ya know I've been up there a few times and never had a craft beer that floated my boat.

 

Honestly the trimming will only be finished tonight under the influence of bourbon.

I'm just a couple shoulder bridges and a sniper knee away from being fully trimmed. I scored and snapped so there will be minimal sanding/dremeling to clean up. Except for two bicep openings where I used my lexan scissors. The scissor snips are faster but require way more work (for me at least) to clean up compared to scoring and snapping. 

 

The one thing to note is that the thermal detonator is pretty much the only accurate one out there except for maybe TM or RS (I'm assuming RS although I've never noticed their TD.)

 

Here is the anovos next to my sexy TM thermal det:

It's all the right diameter and the control panel is pretty spot on.

 

Suck it ATA, AP, WTF, MTK etc... thermal detonators!

Also why the heck is the thermal det control panel and the end caps the only thing trimmed in the kit?

They spent a lot of time assembling those belts. That meant they couldn't trim some of the parts. :)

Those did appear to be very nicely trimmed on the kit that I saw. Perhaps after assembling the belts, and trimming the TDs, they ran out of bourbon. ;)
