G'day from the kangaroo kingdom


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, my names piers just starting out on my journey to eventually joining the 501st. I have joined up to my local garrison here in Australia and have been doing a bunch of research which has led to a rabbit hole of information. My aim is to have ROTJ armour still trying to work out what would work for me 6" and 110kg . Is there a strict procedure in contacting a builder? i have one in mind but they are based in the US so any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Piers, welcome to FISD!

For RotJ, CFO (Cast from original) Mark is one of the best located in the UK,PM Sskunky here on FISD.  Their are other armour makers US based that you can covert to RotJ.

 

This thread here has the vetted makers and some contact info for each.

Welcome to the FISD, Piers!  As Andrew mentioned, if it's ROTJ armor you are looking for you really can't get any more accurate than Mark's.  Cast from an original set, it's as close as you get to screen used and he has a sterling reputation here as a seller.

Whoever you choose, know that we are here every step of the way to help!

Hey and welcome! The thread title alone had me intrigued haha

I'll go ahead and add another +1 for Mark of CfO - ROTJ armor is unique and his is definitely the best example of it. Unaware of any makers in Oz, so if it's going to be shipped anyways, might as well go for the good stuff. His prices and lead times are pretty reasonable by comparison as well. Good luck and let us know if we can help! Research and ask questions, but you're off to a good start obviously!

thanks to sskunky for replying to me i seem to be too big #chunky for cfo the search continues
If you're open to ANH or ESB then you may have more options.

I needed bigger armour and RWA has a XL options in all parts.

If you look at their YouTube channel they have some videos showing sizes of some of the parts.

There are other armour suppliers that can make different sizes, such as RS Propmasters, but I've not used those myself.

Here's a thread that looks at some other suppliers

They wait is unbearable, but lots of time to do your research, perhaps a blaster build or two, prepare a work space, reference material and tools.

 

Soon it will BBB time and then the panic sets in :)
