Looking to build my first set of armor

Recommended Posts

Well, I’ve been looking at getting armor for a long time. It’s a bit pricey and I’m wondering where to start and how much I could do myself. I’m looking at this kit ----------but I’m unsure how to check for quality to get into the 501st.

Welcome, Joshua!  Although that is a good price for a basic kit, there are quite a few accessories that will need to be purchased to go with it for 501st approval.  Boots, gaskets, neck seal, balaclava, etc. can add up pretty quick.  Buying everything at once is not required, so you can collect them as needed.  Unfortunately this is not an inexpensive hobby, but if you are not in a hurry you can definitely get an approved costume with some time.


This particular costume is not part of the FISD but actually part of the Special Ops Detachment.  They will be able to give you a lot more info. there.

Hope this helps, and best of luck on your 501st jorney!
