PostSubject: Stormtrooper Armour   Mon Jan 10, 2011 9:26 pm

Type: TE2
Country: USA
Contact: HDPblues on FISD
Kit: HIPS, untrimmed, derived from a rotj suit.
Availability: No known problems though there may be a waiting list. Sometimes only produces set numbers in runs.
Assembly: Armor needs to be trimmed, parts butt joined with finishing strips, then painted.
Comments: Helmet is considered one of the most accurate available, though some don't like the bumpy cap and back. Has a replacement tour suit left bicep and right forearm.
Price
1. Full kit $725.00 US shipped
2. Armour only kit $600.00 US (plus shipping)
3. Helmet kit $200.00 US shipped


Type: Authenticprops (AP)
Country: Canada
Contact: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Kit: ABS, untrimmed, derived from rotj suit. Helmet is derived from original but cleaned up with a smooth cap and back. Armor similar to TE2 but with some parts being different. The left inner shin is actually a duplicate of the right outer shin. The arms (bicep, forearm and shoulders) are the same, there is no unique left and right arm. The AP helmet comes with sink faucet aerators, which are not that good to look at.
Availability: No known problems obtaining this, though there may be a waiting list.
Assembly: Seams are overlapping joints making it a reasonably easy build, though one can use finishing strips instead.
Comments: Some questions have been raised about the moulds being a little "tired" though, with some people reporting moulding faults. Packing doesn't seem to be too great either, which means that parts can get a little scratched during transit. The armour is ABS, quite white, but not particularly glossy. Will probably shine up well with polish though.
Price:
1. Full kit $799 + $75 shipping (oversea $175)
2. Armour only kit $699 + $75 shipping (oversea $175)
3. Helmet kit $275 +$30 shipping (oversea $65). Might sell them at $245, seconds occasionally available for a lot less + shipping.


Type: ATA (Affordable Trooper Armor)
Country: USA
Contact: SuperTrooper on FISD
Kit: HIPS & ABS, untrimmed, derived from rotj suit.
Availability: No known problems though there may be a waiting list.
Assembly: Armor needs to be trimmed, parts butt joined with finishing strips, then painted.
Comments: Being a later recast generation from the same jedi suit the details are not as sharp as TE2. Good cheap suit though. Now also available in ABS.
Price
1. Full kit $380.00 US (plus S/H)
2. Helmet kit $110.00 US (plus S/H)


Type: RT-Mod (RT)
Country: Canada
Contact: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Kit: ABS, trimmed, fan sculpt. More accurate than FX/AM but not as much as TM/TE2/AP. Ears lack bumps, but can be added if you ask.
Availability: Available to order, but there can be about a 2 month wait.
Assembly: Parts are trimmed and designed to be easy to put together. Helmet comes assembled.
Comments: Designed especially for taller/larger body types and has more capacity to fit these troopers (without shims) than TM or AM. Arm and legs molds can be adjusted up or down to custom fit measurments supplied by trooper.
The helmet is 4% larger than an original helmet. The difference is subtle but better matches the scale of the (RT)suit.
Price:
1.Full suit + assembled helmet $899US plus shipping. Shipping from Canada varies from the prices out of the USA. Also: Note the price reflects the pretrimmed parts and fully assembled helmet.
2.Helmets are also available separately for: Assembled-$275 or Kit-$215.


Type: Troopermaster ™
Country: UK
Contact: For sale threads will be posted as slots for kits become available, usually found on FISD or MEPD.
Kit: ABS, untrimmed, fan sculpt. Reputedly the most accurate fan sculpt. Seams on legs and arms are butt-joins with cover strips.
Availability: Very limited, restricted to for sale posts when he has slots.
Comments: This is really beautiful armour and extremely movie-accurate. It comes at the price of being pretty tricky to assemble though, with potentially a long wait for supply. TM now supplies all his armour in acrylic-capped ABS, or for an ultra accurate build in 1mm flexy abs. His ABS suits are incredibly glossy and, if assembled with care, looks fabulous. The new flexy armour is not bright white and generally needs painting. Armour is more generous than TE2 or AP, but not as large as RT-mod.
Prices:
1.Full suits are £675 + fees.
2.Body armour only £575 + fees.
3.Helmet kits £165 and fully built around £250 + any fees.


Type: Armor Master (AM)
Country: USA
Contact: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] are the two reliable, lowest cost vendors of this armor.
Kit: ABS, trimmed, fan sculpt. More accurate than older FX and the armour is really best suited to large people. Does not come with a helmet.
Availability: No known problems though there may be a waiting list.
Assembly: Parts are trimmed and designed to be easy to put together - along with RT is the easiest kit to make.
Price: just over $500 + shipping for armor only.
Comments: Very durable.
