I am also one of the folks who ordered (and received) the TFA helmet from Anovos when I pre-ordered what was advertised as the TFA armor kit. Who sells a nice TLJ bucket kit? Looks like now I'll need that too.....

Since I'm one who ordered "with helmet", wanted the TFA version, will likely be getting the TLJ version if hints are accurate, and the TFA buckets are already hella expensive on the secondary market... if you wanted to swap whenever the heck my probably-TLJ helmet arrives, lemme know. I know their advertising photos of the TLJ helmet show something less than 100% accurate to the film prop. Maybe the finished product will nail it better, we'll see. But the offer's there.

I have a brand new set of Janine/Fantasy Design gaskets that I’m not going to use if anyone is interested. PM me if interested and I can take measurements.

Might not be a kit but delighted to report one of my Pauldrons has just shipped.

Anovos sure went quiet after celebration. Even their Live Chat has been down ever since then.

I'd say they had enough ear bashing at celebration ;) 

 

Anovos, get it together guys, you've had 4 years now and consumer confidence couldn't be lower.

The moment of truth! I wonder if they sent the right colour?

Not a fan of the Velcro but otherwise good quality.

I tried emailing them 20 days ago asking for a status with the holdup and they still haven’t replied with that either.  They’re apparently also ignoring emails as well.

As I predicted back in April someone has managed to pick up an Anovos TLJ lid at SWGE!

They did have to ask if they were in stock and were rewarded for doing so.

Tony - you were there on the weekend ... did you ask?

No, I did see them though. To be honest I was just as surprised to here someone was able to pick up a bucket there, until I found out today Disney has contracted Anovos to be their supplier for another 3 years.  Just guessing here but if that's the case Anovos probably sent every helmet they had in stock to Disney for GE opening.

You mean they sent all three of their demo/con/trade show buckets to Anaheim. -_-

I am not sure how truthful the guy was that supposedly walked in and got a FOTK helmet  so I would be a little suspicious. Form what I am hearing it is a pre-order with delivery in 6-8 weeks. Either way though that is a pretty big slap in the face to all of us that have them on order. I think we need one of our members to actually verify what the in-park terms are.

 

I think it will be really ugly at ComiCon for Anovos if you can get them at the park but we are still waiting. It would be interesting to see if they have any legal obligations to us or if at this point Disney is giving them so much money they are just going to screw all of us.

I wonder if the Class Action filed against Anosho on 3 June will speed up delivery?

25 days now and still no simple email response from them.  Is anyone else experiencing the same issue?  They don’t even respond to emails now.

No email, no live chat. Nothing. Pretty much the global experience right now.

I doubt anovos will even show up to court.  They’ll make every excuse to delay their own trial as well.  I mean, they can’t even answer emails now.  At best they might write a delayed letter to court and make ambiguous counterarguments using whatever they posted on their site or bribe the mouse.

Hopefully in the lawsuit the person should also mention that Anovos’ Fraud is also clearly evident in how they are making tlj instead of the tfa armor that they were supposed to give us on top of the delays. This is blatant fraud and lying on their part because they technically never and will never fulfill the tfa armor that was ordered.  I ordered tfa armor, and now anovos is going to not even going to make it and instead make me wait for a tlj armor that I did not order.  As everyone has pointed out already, tfa and tlj are virtually completely different molds, build, appearance, etc from top to bottom, they are different everywhere at a glance.  And where’s the inner chest/back piece that is not supposed to be fused with the outer chest?  You’re better off replacing the entire top.  And rework is worst than building from scratch.  That was supposed to be completely separate from the outer, but now it’s one piece.  And they mutilated the joining between the front and back torso, which was not advertised in their preorder and did not exist in the alpha/beta kits.  

 

I really hope that Roger Dalton and his lawyers are reading this forum as well.  

 

Anovos better start pulling out their old alpha/beta molds, start cranking out the tfa armor they promised from the beginning, and send each tfa kit out everytime 1 is done like ALL the other vendors that make star wars armor now without delay.  If not, this fraud they are blatantly committing is going to hold true.

Also if anyone on this website has a spare tfa first order stormtrooper kit/costume (maker does not matter at this point), please PM me asap.  I will buy it.

Roger is in a number of groups on social. You can always lend your POV to him there if you track him down.
