Rogue One TK Sources where to get stuff

Recommended Posts

Rogue One TK Sources

 

Since I keep seeing these questions popping up from time to time, I figured I would make this simple for everyone. I do not have experience with some of these sources so if any of you do please chime in. Further, I am not pushing or supporting any of these sources, I am just providing you all the list and what they provide, and you choose who and what you want to go with. Lastly, If I do have experience with a specific source, I will note that and my overall experience with them. I am not pushing any sources, rather supplying you a list to work from if you are having a hard time finding stuff. Please feel free to add to this or provide "creative" comments.

 

ROTK Sources

 

Jimmiroquai       Armor, Helmet, Under Suit           jimmiroquai@yahoo.com

Jim was the first source for ROTK armor and is considered very accurate. The armor is flexible fiberglass and requires painting. I have a full set or armor, helmet, and under suit from Jim and I like everything.

 

850 Armor Works             Armor, Under Suit           https://850armorworks.com/

850 AW has found a way to vacuum form ROTK armor. They produce this armor in white ABS and it looks very accurate from the pictures I have seen. I have ordered a set of armor from them and should receive it in a week or two. Once I get the armor, I will review it here on FISD. Ever since I got my Jimmiroquai armor I have wanted a set of vacuum formed armor. There are some significant differences in the types of material used and I like the idea of the armor coming in shinny white plastic.

 

Hasbro Black Series         Helmet                 Amazon and others

Very nice helmet that will require significant alteration to be 501st approved. I have one and I am planning on altering it for use with my 850 AW armor.

 

HeadShotProps                Helmet                 https://www.etsy.com/shop/HeadShotProps?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=621540939

Looks to be a nice pull, this helmet is roto cast with greebles.

 

Soft Goods

Other than the previously noted sources many of the soft goods are available from these sources:

 

Dark Side Closet               Under Suit                           https://www.facebook.com/TheDarkSideCloset/

I have messaged them for pricing and shipping, and they are very responsive.

 

Geeky Pink’s Gaskets     Under Suit           https://www.facebook.com/GeekyPinksPhantasticGaskets/

You will need to message here and provide specifications.

 

Imperial Boots                   RO Boots, Gloves, Strapping        https://www.imperialboots.com/

I have a set of boots and gloves from IB. I love the boots, the gloves are not the highest quality.

 

Endor Finders                    RO Gloves                           https://www.endorfinders.com/

I have a set of gloves from EF and I love them.

 

Katarra8               RO Pauldrons                     https://www.etsy.com/listing/150178963/classic-star-wars-stormtrooper-shoulder?ref=shop_home_feat_3&frs=1

I have a RO Orange Pauldron from Katarra8 and I love it.

 

Veeds Pauldrons              RO Pauldrons     https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Product-Service/Veeds-Pauldrons-305552456469495/

I do not have any of Veeds’ Pauldrons but he is highly reviewed and respected.

 

E-11s

 

Hyperfirm Weaponry (HFx Productions)  GOING OUT OF BUSINESS, NOT TAKING ANY NEW ORDERS               RO E-11                https://www.facebook.com/HFx-Productions-1669859386576227/

I have a B-Grade RO E-11 from Hyperfirm and love it.

 

Praetorian Blasters          RO E-11                https://www.facebook.com/BlasterMaker/

I do not own a PB RO E-11 but it looks awesome.

 

S&T Full Metal Airsoft Sterling E-11           RO E-11                https://www.evike.com/products/61969/

While most of the E-11s used in RO were made using the S&T Full Metal airsoft Sterling, this E-11 is not very accurate for RO. The scope, counter, and  power cylinders are all wrong and there is not a light rail or tactical light.

 

DoopyDoo’s                       RO E-11 parts     https://www.doopydoos.com/star-wars-props-31-c.asp

It has been noted that some of the E-11s used in RO were equipped with a DoopyDoo cast of the M.H.R. Co. M38 Telescope from Sherman M4 Tank (1943 version with wide front foot).

 

War Machine                     RO E-11 parts     http://www.warmachinepaintball.com/online-store-replicas/

If you are looking to make a full “all metal” RO E-11, look no further. War Machine makes everything you would ever need.

 

Bulldog Props                    RO E-11 parts     https://www.facebook.com/BulldogPropsJapan/

Brian makes resin casts of the M.H.R. Co. M38 Telescope from Sherman M4 Tank (1943 version with wide front foot) that are completely accurate and disassemble-able. I own one and love it. I have done a full review of it on FISD.

 

Shear Tech                         RO E-11, Rubber RO Handguards     https://www.facebook.com/sheartech/

I am not real familiar with these guys but the E-11 looks nice and the rubber hand guards are nice as well.

 

While there are a lot more sources out there this is a fairly good list for anyone to work from. I did not include sources like static burst communication kits or urethane rubber shoulder straps sources, but they are out there and if you are looking for that stuff you should be able to find them.

 

I hope this helps those of you who are looking to embark on your ROTK journey.

MMcFett, you are correct. i thought they were doing a helmet at one point but that was HSP. I have corrected the OP.

Also, Hyperfirm is no longer around - Praetorian effectively took over for them. If you can find one secondhand, they're still great blasters, but no new orders are being taken.

 

In other news, THANK YOU for posting this - it will be SUPER helpful for new recruits! :D

Crap, grabbing the B-Grade anything was like getting next to new stuff for 1/2 price. OP corrected again.

Ukswrath, thanks brother. I also found another RO E-11 maker. I will add them to the list.

Guest All the power

Someone sells a extremely accurate 3D model of the rogue one helmet seen here:

https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/games-toys/toys/stormtrooper-helmet-star-war

 

I bought the model to see how good it actually is, there are some issues to be noted.

 

  1. The 1 piece model has the cut lines from where it was split. Not sure why the person did that.
  2. It has a surface of that of a scanned 3d model, not a scratch built one. Maybe a sideshow/hot toys rogue one helmet was used or maybe the file got corrupted from when it was uploaded to the host website, ruining the faces of the model.

Now that I'm logged in. Here's a pic of the model in blender (which a smoother modifier added to smooth those nasty faces) with those weird lines visible

 

Might try to contact the seller see if he as a model without them. Because looking at the possibility of 3d printing this as one piece looks like a challenge when you look at the mesh.

Well Crap MMcFett, If I had seen that RO E-11 back when I was doing my build I would have grabbed it. I purchased an ANH E-11 3D print from Blaster Master before he shut down his store. Lots of awesome reviews of his E-11s and he was a great guy to talk with. I planned on building the ANH E-11 and converting it to RO standards but I have never gotten around to doing it.

 

GandalfTheImperial, that bucket looks nice. I have a Prusa I3Mk3 so I would need to print it in parts and then glue it together. I like the size options as well and 30.00 bucks for the model seems like a steel. I have a black series bucket that I am planning on modifying for my RO 850 AW build but I am not sure which would be easier, 3D print this one or mod the BS. The only thing I would do differently if I had modeled this would be to have the tears and rear boxes be separate parts. This would make painting and detailing easier.

 

I know there are some 3D models of the armor out there but I have no idea where and obviously no clue about price and quality.

Thank you everyone for the updates.

Are there any RO E-11 3D files currently available anywhere? I've had little luck finding any during my research, so I might end up converting the ANH E-11 to RO, as 11b30b4 mentioned.

Does anyone know what is going on with Praetorian? I was in communication with them over 2 weeks ago on their FB page and they said they were almost done with their new batch of E11s. Then they fell off the face of the Earth and are nowhere to be seen and do not respond.

Well they've always been a bit spotty on their response times and consistancy but they've eventually get back to you, usually. Send them another email or PM every few days.

Ok thanks for the info. They told me a week and its been 3. I'm slowly running out of time to wait so I may have to go with an alternative.

I saw a recent FB post from Praetorian that the owner had the flu. That might be why the delay. I'd give it another week!

Yes I saw that too. That was 4 days ago now. I messaged the owner and the official page. Multiple times. I see they have been active but no response back. I know I'm probably not the only person trying to get a hold of them but I think a quick reply to let us know whats up would be nice/professional. At this point, the 1 week that has turned into 4 weeks of waiting-as much as I wanted one, I may just go another route. I don't have anymore time to wait or ill end up buying something random at the toy store and spray painting it black lol. Very disappointing as Ive heard its a great product.

Something to remember is many armor makers do this in their spare time and real life comes first and although unfortunate not to receive a reply people do get busy, ill or even go on holidays it's not uncommon not to hear from a maker for weeks so hang tight if you can I'm sure you'll get a response in time.

I have a praetorian E-11 and I was one of the first to buy the R1 version and they were super helpful and it is a fantastic product. I'd give them some time.
