Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

Recommended Posts

Movement is good. Hope I'll see mine this year... getting it done by IX premiere isn't likely but still, one can dream.

So I’m trying to use the time spent waiting for this armour semi-productively (instead of spending it making voodoo dolls of Anovos executives..).

 

I’m trying to work out what the specific differences in the TFA vs TLJ armour are (not the helmets as that’s clear). I’ve poured through all the other forum posts and old CRL building discussions - but I can’t seem to find a definitive list of differences. What’s driving this is the comments about the armour seeming to be TLJ and I’m wondering just what will need to be changed to make this TFA approveable. 

 

I know that the cod is different (thinner) but there isn’t  a clear explanation about which level of approval this difference is required for.

I also know that the end cap on the TD is a different colour - but there were some old forum discussions about the size/length of the end cap maybe being different and I can’t see any description of where this ended up.

There was also some old discussion about the spats maybe being different?

 

I’m sure I’m not the only person wanting to make the TFA version of this armour - from what seems to be a TLJ version that is occasionally shipping. Can anybody help clear this up for us all (or if I’ve missed an exisiting thread about this, point me in that direction)?

 

thanks

You've pretty much narrowed it down. The only other area I've seen that is different is the forearm construction near the elbow. 

 

Once you have your armor and begin your build it won't take much to alter and should cost very little. 

 

Lastly, take a look at the TFA CRL details and keep an eye on the TLJ CRL as I'm sure it will update in the near future.

The CRL's for both TFA and TLJ will be undergoing a review soon, there are specific differences between the armor and no doubt many of these will be bought up in the proposed updates as a lot more references are available since the CRL's had first been made.

 

Cod is definitely different and required for TLJ L2 EIB as most makers use the TFA design, the images below show the differences of those.

Forearms are also different (without digging for better images, the below show the difference)

To be honest the cod may become a moot point once the CRL is reviewed. There are three versions of the cod seen in TLJ, including the TFA.

I think showing the TLJ with split side Ab seams and over lap shoulders is a bit confusing. This won't be allowed

These are definitely incorrect. Anovos messed up as usual.

 

These are TLJ

Thanks. We’re in an interesting situation as most discussion focuses on taking a TFA kit and turning it into TLJ - whereas I want to go the opposite direction and take a TLJ kit and return it back to a TFA... fun times ahead - and I’m sure the CRL will be updated before Anovos actually ship anyway.

Correct Tony I should have said Anovos's TLJ Version but I was just comparing that to  the TFA ;) 

 

 

A side by side and no mater which version TFA or TLJ some rework will be needed on the Anovos forearms

I remembered the "stunt" "Finn" variation but even that's not the same that tapers and Anovos doglegs

No worries, been looking into how to remedy the issue which undoubtedly will require adding plastic IMHO.

Might just see if KB would sell me just forearms, probably an easier solution.

Might not be a bad idea. Since you'll be painting it the ABS color won't matter.

Recommend he start making "upgrade kits" of the parts needed for each. Cod and forearm rear pieces for TFA, for instance. I want to actually have stuff in hand before i hatch a plan of action, since that demo dress-up wasnt fully assembled but just stuck together for a quick-and-dirty picture.

It’s not just TFA though the forearms don’t match TLJ either, who knows what they used as reference for them

They used Finn's forearms as reference which had 'mobility' cuts made to them. But they didn't replicate it quite properly either.

Just be glad they didn't replicate the knocked off wrist boxes too.
