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

Unless it’s changed, KB has the same feature.

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.

Which means these are a one off making them unique to his costume like the helmet hand print, not the norm. Worthy oh their own CRL maybe?

Well that stinks, hopefully KB has updated or plans to update his armor. Maybe have multiple options available

There are some pretty decent 3D files for the forearm. It’s one of the few parts of the kit I think could work as a print.

That's how I did mine and it just doesn't compare with the softness of vac-formed forearms. However, the area that Anovos removed does have the tendency to get in the way when you try to bend the arm. I guess the propmakers didn't think of that when they designed the stormtrooper armor for TFA. Which is probably why they reworked it later on for TLJ, and probably TROS.

No rework for TROS just a clean and re-use of TLJ kits. All focus on new kits like the Sith and Biker troopers, etc

For anyone who may be attending SDCC and like to have a lively chat with Anovos staff in person or just to check out their "new reveals" that they may supply probably one day eventually maybe

Thanks for the pictures. The tight focus helps. It looks like they're replicating the Finn Trim™, but in that test-cobble haven't trimmed/rounded the corners on the backpiece. I really want my kit in-hand so I know what exactly I'm dealing with. I have several notions of how to attack this -- as with the shoulder seams -- that I can't start to narrow down until I have the final physical artifact to study and fiddle with. The cod I'm probably just going to try to source from KB. Maybe the amount he quoted me for the Phasma boot armor I ordered and he never made would be enough for that piece and he can get started right away since I already paid him almost two years ago...

 

And that SDCC floor map -- never mind ANOVOS, will folks please let us know if there's anything neat at the Rubies booth next door?

According to StarWars.com they're going to have Sith Trooper suits. They look... great. ;)

I’m assuming the sith trooper shown here (as well as the others) is anovos?


Only the helmet on display I believe.

They made 130 kits for production so every chance these are production used screen assets.

Forgot to say that my red pauldron and FOTK kit came last week, minus the gaskets and the lid.

That's great news!

So now there are exactly 3 confirmed and shipped suits out of the 50 "shipped" months ago?

Thanks guys. 

I know it’s taken a while but the kit really is top notch. So much easier than a regular TK. Everything comes pre trimmed so it’s just a case of gluing it together. 

The Anovos instructions are awful. They say use Velcro almost everywhere like their OTTK. A bit of advice. Don’t bother with them. Make it up as you go along. In a few hours I’ve rigged the abs, cod, butt, legs and spats. 

Sure, there’s 2 seams to fill on the waist, and the yoke joint to fill, but my brother does car painting and said that it should be easy to paint match and feather in without painting the whole kit. 

The forearms aren’t great. The shape is a little wrong so I’m waiting on our GMLs input. 

All in all, it’s a great kit. Was I worth the wait? I’ll let you know when it’s finished. 

Would i pre order from Anovos again? No chance.
