It’s possible they’ll set up a thread here at some point but currently they’re sharing info via Facebook groups.

 A couple of the groups you can find ongoing information is the FISD group, Anovos First Order Stormtrooper Kit Building Group.

Has there been any new word about the kylo yet?  Also for that person that got his kit, did anovos/carrier notify him/her before receiving it?  Or did it just show up on the front door one day?

In a post I read on FB a recipient stated that they were asked if they wanted to wait for the gaskets and helmet (as they are not ready) or if they wanted the armor now, separately. So it would seem an email went out.

THe Kylo has been delayed until Summer now. They said it was on the boat with the FOTK and would ship first then when the March 19 date passed they changed their story again to Summer 2019. So that is three times now the Kylo was on the boat over 2 years but it never arrived. Straight up lies at this point.

 

Keep in mind that so far their only has been one confirmed FOTK kit shipped and it was not complete.

Misery loves company....... I am waiting on two items - Kylo Ren Helmet and FOTK kit. Last update I was given on the Kylo was Winter 2020. The FOTK I am eagerly awaiting any news like everyone else on this thread. 

 

I joined the Anovos FOTK FB group as well. At least one person received the kit.

I jumped on the FOTK kit within minutes of receiving the "exclusive" offer to get a kit due to cancellations. Still hoping I get one of the kits being trimmed and not bumped to the next run scheduled for next winter. That being said, no word on my TLJ helmet now 2 weeks past shipping window AND I really need to build my OT kit and helmet I got from Anovos a year ago , so waiting a bit more is ok with me. Just wish they were more communicative and just gave us the hard truth as in "we promised we'd trim them and we have a team of 2 trimming 600 kits, should be done Winter of 2020".....or whatever that truth may be.

I am honestly not sure if Anovos even know the difference between their lies and the truth anymore. I know for a fact their customer service department isn't given that info.

Unfortunately you see this with a lot of companies, for some reason they just won't come clean and say there's a delay, rather to leave people in the dark. I would have though 4 years on they would have learnt but we encountered the same issues in 2015 and they are still treating customers the same.

 

It's great to see some kits being received and I would hope the majority of orders will be fulfilled soon.

 

I do have a chuckle when I see a preview email from them now, do they really think there is confidence out there to "pre order" after all that's gone on recently ;)

Don't get me wrong, I am super excited that Anovos is shipping some kits, that the actually do have a real product and hope mine will arrive sooner than later but when there are hundreds on order and 3 years later they ship out a very few incomplete kits I can't help but still be more than a little frustrated with them still.

 

I am still cheering for them to come through but talk about coming out with a fizzle and not a bang.

Was exactly the same with the beta kits, shipping pieces separately, although helmet, soft parts and gaskets where first back then, which really was not help as all the work was in the armor ;)

That may be true but these were promised as complete kits years ago during the pre order and all the way up to the non-existent March 19 date. So really there is no good excuse to only ship the plastic pieces.

 

And how many years ago did the Alpha and Beta kits ship? Plenty of time to get all the other stuff ready especially when they made completely new bucks and other delays. All these other parts should have been ready and waiting since they redesigned and delayed the abs parts.

I am hoping the gaskets were delayed because they don't look so great in the pics, all baggy and not very "gaskety" like a neck seal, and that they are fixing them. Gaskets are available elsewhere by folks with good product and reputation. Hope their sewing fingers are ready!

Not to be a Debbie downer here but the instructions tell you to velcro the inner chest to the back/yoke. That means there will be a seam at the shoulders, and I've seen no seams on the screen armor except for Phasma. Hurdle #1 ;)

As I said, I have plans for how to tackle that. I've been drafting several versions of relevant posts depending on what I finally hold in my hands. Once I do it and have pics I don't want to delay sharing because it's taking me a while to describe my process.

 

Meantime, I'll be looking for anyone's tutorials on how to TFA-ify the cod. Other parts I'm not sure about how I'll tackle -- I'm not happy with the ugly-but-film-accurate overlapping biceps and legs. Since I'm doing Cardinal and he's not aprovable (and may never be), I might make them seamless or engineer functional latches...

Copy. though I was referring to the instructions not your build. Other builders need to understand this is incorrect as I suspect other assembly areas will not be correct.

 

TFA - https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/31877-ukswraths-fotk-build-thread/

 

Specifically the cod , though not entirely screen accurate because of how the armor was designed - https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/31877-ukswraths-fotk-build-thread/page/13/?tab=comments#comment-443442

 

Hope this helps
