You have cash in fist and can't *wait* to buy your armor. Perhaps you're already in the 501st but with a different costume, but more likely this is going to be your first armor purchase ever.   Eve

Well, I don't know about MEPD, but my contact sells his for 350, no helmet... my buddy says it doesnt have the rest either, just the body armor

I would say that is the going price for a raw FX kit, i wouldn't pay any more than that :unsure:

Good deal?

yes...better price than you will find on any auction cites, and less than I had to pay for mine a year and a half ago :D

Hey, newbie jumping in to screw everything up, can anyone tell me a place to get molds for the stormtrooper armor so I can make my own?

If you want to make your own, that includes sculpting armor too.

Hi Jamie,

 

There is a lot of information on the site about various types of armor, helmets, etc.

 

Before deciding to make a purchase, do some research. Read up and once you figure out what direction you want to go, post an introductory and let us know your plans.

 

Buying armor is like the 10th step, figuring out your plan for this hobby should take you time. Oh, and have fun. :lol:

I know when I start building mine, I will be doing a lot of research on here and with others in the squad that have done them before.

Mike H.'s site was one of the inspirations for this one. Truly a valuable resource for all who love white plastic.

I'm brand new to the board, definatley want to go with a ANH trooper. My question is helmets. I have a rather large head xl motor cycle helmets are a tight fit. Will I have any trouble with storm trooper helmets?

I am new here too but I can easily stuff my big old head inside of a FX helmet. not sure about the others as I have not tried them. I know I am pretty much the "crew cheif" on a ARC clone and I can barely get my head inside that one, and tried on a Phase III helmet last week, it too was a tight fit, and those are smaller than a standard FX kit helmet.

Hey - I'm another rookie looking for his first set of white armor. What would you guys recommend for a first set. I've been hearing that FX is a great choice and sounds like the best price, but if you had the resources to go with more expensive armor, or would you still say go with the FX first and then upgrade later when you have a better idea of what you're looking at and know a little more about stormtrooping?

I strongly urge you to review the Armor Helmets section on this forum. There you will find the answers you seek. BTW fx is not the most affordable armor out there. Good luck on your armor decision Deltapilot!
