    Welcome to the boards Jason!

    I wasn't at the meeting so I didn't get a chance to meet you.

    I'm sure one of us can hook you up with info regarding a stormtrooper suit......

    Welcome... Please don't buy armor off e-bay. I think we may be able to steer you in the right direction of some better quality armor!

    First of all, Welcome to the boards Jason! Good to see you at the meeting last night.

    Beware of EvilBay. There are alot of prop forums warning of scams that often occur with "prop makers" that sell there. Many times, what you see isn't what you are getting, if you get anything at all. Look into resources that we have internally. Although a bit pricy, those are going to be the most reliable for getting the proper equipment. Expect to spend a grand on armor per costume, if you want to do this right. Also expect to put a bit of work into it as what you will more than likely receive will be rough styrene parts "pulled" into form. Styrene is pretty forgiving to work with, but does take some effort -especially when polishing to a gloss, like a trooper's armor would look like.

    Peter Sr (MyHale) is our residential "Stormy" and "Cloney", and he can provide much more insight than I can on this topic.
