Lone Sentry's ANH Stunt Build (AP)

Recommended Posts

Plugging away on soft goods and supplies. Darman premium neck seal (velcro) ordered. Paint, nylon strapping, elastic, magnets, and a few other smaller things all been ordered. Boots will be ordered on Feb 7 when Imperial opens up again. Blaster will be the last thing I research/order, and probably wont move on that until the actual build starts. I'm happy with the progress so far. What once seemed a like huge daunting list doesn't seem so bad anymore. I should have almost everything in place to hit the ground running once BBB Day arrives (then real terror starts. Lol.)

Darman makes a mighty fine holster too.

I buy my TK belts from Rob Kittle (up to maybe 6 by now):

:D:D great to know there's another person nervous about starting an armor build as I was the day my kit arrived. 

Don't be afraid, at least not much. You're not alone in this process. 

 

We are here to help you. 

 

:peace:

My AP kit comes with holster and belt! I'll have to determine if they are Centurion level when BBB Day hits, if not I'll take a hard look at these. Thanks for the info!

Great to hear you’re heading for Centurion. :-)

 

If you do end up looking for a higher grade belt, their are some really good options out there. Personally, I prefer the ones without a plastic insert. For out and out accuracy, the original belts did not have a plastic insert, rather they were made up of around 8 layers of fabrics/materials.

Personal recommendations would be BurkBench Designs or Troopermaster. Both can be found on Facebook.

The AP belt and holster will get you all the way to level 3, Chris, so no worries there.

Yep, no need to replace anything out of Mark's kit if you don't want to.  Well, the only thing I would recommend changing out is the green visor Mark supplies.  Although it is more screen accurate, it does not do a very good job of hiding your face when people are up close and personal or taking pictures with flashes.  I ended up getting a green visor from TrooperBay - it was much darker and does a great job of hiding your face.

The wait for BBB Day is excruciating. I should be able to hit the ground running once it arrives. Here are most of the supplies/tools I've gathered, thanks to the "Supply List for Your OT TK Build" thread. I am ordering boots from Imperial when they open up again this Friday. Really terrified excited to get started! :)

Thanks to this thread, I've started amassing all the tools, supplies, etc. This was today's haul. Twelve magnets have been ordered, too. Dremel, mineral spirits, hammer, vise grips, etc. are all things I fortunately already own. Note the 1/4" wide white elastic--aiming for Centurion already! It sounds like the AP kit comes with snaps, rivets, and screws, so I am holding off on those to see what I end up with on BBB Day. Off to a good start!

 

 

What's really great about your thorough investment in tools and consumables is that you'll use all of that on your next costumes and beyond (and there are always more costumes.) In fact, looking at my workbench most of the original stuff I bought for my TK is still there being used on the reg.

Once you are bitten by the building bug there is no hope, onwards and upwards to more costumes, I have a couple ;) 

 

Looking forward to seeing those BBB photos soon.

I get it’s important the look at the lighter side of things but perhaps not the best joke as people are dying as of right now. Thanks for understanding.

Completely reasonable and Understandable considering the outbreak

I am surprised it is only that short of a delay. Their health and well-being is far more important than our make-believe boots!

I have a gut feeling the delay will be extended...
