Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

Recommended Posts

For anyone interested, shipping to the uk is $340 !!!!!!

They invoiced me for shipping April 30th but still haven’t sent my kit. And when they finally get the helmet and gaskets, guess what?

SHIPPING IS PAYABLE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!

Ouch, over double what the OT was then.  And when it arrives Fedex are going to send you an invoice for 23% of the kit + shipping cost + handling fee....

Agreed, hard to fathom how this company thinks that what they are doing is the right thing by their customers. Gouging and double dipping yet people keep sending money their way.

Unless the Mouse is encouraging it. Look at the FOTK selling at GE. My first thought was, who in their right mind would pay for that? Answer, people with money to spend. If Disney is charging this kind of $ for the armor at GE who knows what they could be recommending Anovos retail their products at, and/or charging Anovos a boatload for royalties which would leave them no alternative but to pass the bill on to the consumer :blink:   

 

Sadly, if the mouse ever decides to bring the hammer down 3rd party armor suppliers this could become the new norm. Let's hope not

Well, I’m fine with Anovos selling at those prices as long as it means we still keep third parties. I’d still prefer to go support a reliable third party for a better price. However, as we keep learning, reliable, is the key word too.

Does anybody here or know anybody that may have any inside scoop as to why Anovos has not been responding to emails at all?


It is their modus operandi.

They responded to me. Saying people are clogging up the ticket system by sending multiple emails. Always the customers fault. 

They also responded closing all my tickets without actually answering any questions. 

The only way to get an answer is to put bullet points and ask direct questions.

HAHAHAHAHA.  Nice photoshopping.  Now all it needs is to be placed in one of anovos’ spam emails with 10 different emoji’s in the subject text.  I know the design is real according to the upcoming 3rd part of the mouse’s line of *alleged* “star wars” movies, but honestly the design looks like something that was from deviantart and other similar imagehosting sites with fanart and disgusting blogs (you know what they are).  

 

I look forward to more Classic TK’s joining our ranks in the future.  #GalacticEmpire4Life

No comment on that they're called Sith Troopers?

LOL they can call it whatever they want at this point, but that red paint will fade hard hahaha.  Plus it will still be virtually impossible to fully clean out all of that gunk that will get stuck between the molded lines that are decorated around that armor even after light trooping in it.  Maybe someone can make hard wavy sponges with ridges molded specifically to fit between those decorative line molds and sell them to us ;) (We’re all looking at you Tony :), just send us a complimentary water bottle for the soap, water is scarce for us cali’s).  Don’t know if clay bar would help.....

 

Calling it a First Order Magma Trooper would have been much better.  

 

Also, a gravely missed opportunity for making some sort of First Order Death Trooper or Biker Scout instead if you ask me.....

Haha ya.  That ABS with the back side of the armor for the lines filled better be sturdy enough to endure a good cleaning over and over. And expect much more frequent repainting.  I mean, the photoshopper has proposed at least 16 years for Anovos to address those types of issues if they actually go through with it, and I quote “if we’re lucky” LOL

 

 

....And speaking of painting,  I always found it silly that Anovos couldn’t just mold everything in black to make it easier for us to paint.  It would have saved them much more time and resources.....

Received my FOTK armour and red pauldron shipping notice yesterday. No helmet or gaskets yet but it’s a start. Hopefully others will follow.

Great news Lee! Here’s hoping the Pauldron is red - we haven’t seen one in the wild yet and one person who ordered red got black.

Welcome to the Anosho lottery!

An Andre from another facebook group also received their kit w/ white pauldron, so it sounds like small waves go out. 

 

Perhaps when they get a large shipment, 3/4 goes to Disneyland, with 1/4 going to preorder fulfillment?

Glad to hear more kits are on the way. Looking forward to your build :duim:
