Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

Recommended Posts

I wish I could help, but I didn’t even know that they had a panel.  They just probably ended up giving the same unfriendly and useless answers as always whether or not in person.  

 

So to summarize everything that has happened so far:  

- Anovos does not make TFA fotk armor anymore, only tlj

- Summarizing the posts they made, they will not change anything they did wrong and will not tell you when your order will ship, period.  

 

Given this situation, can someone please list on this forum the best vendors (that are not anovos) that are actively taking orders for tfa fotk now, since the other forum post is probably not as aware about the whole situation that is occurring on this forum post?  Or can anyone reply to the post (that lists the armor vendors) a request to look into this whole anovos situation and provide a new vendor guide for tfa fotk’s?  

 

P.S I’m going to continue holding onto my anovos fotk order permanently though.  In the mean time, I need a second kit from another vendor for this year.

Walt's Trooper Factory is taking pre-orders on an FOTK. No idea when it will be available (nothing on the facebook page).

850 Armor Works has something, but I have not seen any reviews of it yet. KB props has something as well, would like to see a recent review.

Word of warning, as much as I trust Walt I would encourage buyers to refrain from preordering until known kits are in stock, unless you can preorder without payment. This goes for any seller.

How do I visit the preorder page and how would I request a preorder from Walt?  I need to know what Walt’s release date for the preorder is.    

 

Also is KB props or 850 armor works recasts?  Please verify?

 

Much thanks

How about the Jimi kits he seems pretty reliable.

Yes, but there's pros and cons to every armor. Do a little research before buying.

It’s funny or maybe sad how Anovos was sending press releases and apologies every day up to Celebration and now absolutely nothing, no promised updates no updated shipping dates, nothing. Coincidence?

Dana, “Joe people are really pissed, we better do something before Celebration “.

How is 850 armor works?  Are they legit or recasts?  Also what is the summary of situation on 850 regarding their TFA FOTK?  Hopefully they didn’t ditch TFA and went tlj as well.....I am mainly concerned if they are recasts or not however.

They're legit. Regarding their current situation regarding the TFA, you'll need to ask them directly. They've posted several advertisement links on the FB FOTK groups as well as others so one would assume they have kits ready to sell however, other then the advertisement photos I haven't seen anyone with the armor.

I think the most affordable maker is 850, kits instock at $350 (no helmet, might have white ABS in stock, mostly black ABS). 

 

Legit makers of FOTK (that I know of)

ANOvos - coming from China/USA, white ABS with resin bits, available on the 3rd day of each leap year

Back Stage Props (BSP) - white ABS armor, resin helmet?, to be released in the coming months (just beginning test pulls)

Diversity Props - available from Europe, TLJ, ABS armor, resin helmet?  Lots of reports of poor communication, refund issues

Jimmiroquai - available from Indonesia?, flexible fiberglass, resin helmet?, both TFA and TLJ

KB Props - available from USA, black/white ABS, resin helmet, TFA, not sure if TLJ yet

850 Armor works - available from USA?, both white and black ABS, resin helmet?, TFA

 

Recast

FN Armor - white ABS, absolutely horrible

So it sounds like on Thursday, Anovos sent out shipping invoices to the next batch of orders. 4 people in the facebook group announced they had received theirs. What was interesting is that one of them ordered their kit Oct 3rd of '16 (without helmet), while there are still many from March-September (with helmet) that haven't received invoices yet. Last month, Anovos was okay with shipping most of the kit, minus the helmet and soft parts. Perhaps they have helmets arriving soon, and decided to get out a few non helmet orders (though ordered later?). Or whats probably more likely, Anovos doesn't care and are shipping out of order.

 

Oh, and shipping to Florida was $90. I think Anovos ships from Los Angeles?

Just search for Anovos First Order Stormtrooper Kit Building Group. I'm one of the Admins there.

 

Or were you referring to another group?

Fingers crossed.  Let’s hope it doesn’t get stuck on an invisible ship for 2+ years and counting

Right now it's stuck on a UPS truck headed in my direction lol
