ShadyP's FOTK built thread (Backstage Props - preorder FOTK)

upon inspecting the TFA and TLJ crl's,  the image for the cod is the exact same image.  I checked the URLs for both, and it points to the same file.   So with that in mind, according to the CRL, this cod will be fine :) 

The TFA/TLJ CRLs are under change so I wouldn’t be too sure that will still be the case afterwards.

Yeah, I figured it’s too good to be true. Just means I need to get this together quickly once it arrives.

I can´t be sure though but wanted to give a heads up:)

The CRLs are fluid and currently under review. That said, if your build thread is in progress while the CRL is you shouldn't be denied approval at higher levels, so long as it's not well into next year when you finish, then it may be up for debate ;)

We had a 3 month grace period on the OT TK CRL amendments after they were published, so there is no reason why the FO CRL's will be any different.

We are not about making things impossible for members who have started construction without plenty of notice,so you should be fine :)

Whilst images like this exist the TLJ cod will always be a a fun one to pick. One, scene, three varying looks!

there has to be a market for a FOTK themed banana hammock.  I don't know that I want to see that market... but its got to exist.

Correct at the time of the CRL being made the then FISD DL decided that as there was no armor maker supplying the TLJ cod then the TFA cod could be used for base approval so the image shows a TFA cod, with the TLJ cod a requirement for L2. As others have mentioned the FO CRL's will be undergoing some rework hopefully soon so this issue and others will be revisited. 

 

Comparison I put together at the time

well, BSP tells me that the boxes have been shipped to me but thus far they have not provided any tracking info.   I'm hesitant to get my hopes up but maybe these will arrive shortly.  

I've got 3 sets of this armor being shipped to me.  Two of my squad mates are going to be building along with me.  I'm not sure if we'll all use this build thread or if they will start their own.  This FOTK will be their first FISD submission.

Well, it's been two weeks since BSP told me these kits shipped.   I don't have them.  BSP has thus far not provided any details on the shipment.  No tracking number, not even the name of the shipping service they are using.   Instead they merely tell me that the boxes have shipped and that "I should see the delivery soon."  I understand all to well that international shipping takes awhile, however no purchase of this value should be dispatched without sufficient tracking information.   Without it, neither myself nor BSP have any proof against lost or stolen goods.   

 

I know BSP has a strong track record of producing and distributing quality armor.  I'm hesitant to refer people to them due to this lack of shipment information.  Hopefully my nervous wait will end soon.

I'm not sure were they are based but I know off hand in some cases I've waited 3 to 4 weeks for shipping from other countries, plus any hold ups in customs. I've not always received tracking or details when armor has shipped from several makers.

 

I've seen recent posts from them with kits shipping and some spare in hand so cross fingers it appears very soon.

I've ordered stuff from international sellers before and understand the long travel times.  The thing that is killing me is their refusal to provide details, things like what courier they are using and a tracking number.  I'm shocked honestly that what should be a simple piece of data to provide is causing me so much anxiety.   

 

I'm going to dial my focus into getting D-O driving around.  That should distract me from the pile of FOTK parts collecting dust.

It surprises me to hear this. When I bought a prop from them I received shipping info within hours and received the item three days later.

I’m going to ask some questions of others who have ordered and see what the consensus is.
