    Someone may have asked this already, but is there anywhere that I can get a real life, wearable clone trooper (phases 1 and 2) armour that are made of plates rather than fabric? I can find Stormtrooper and even FO Stormtrooper armour, but aside from helmets, I can't find anything. Thank you for your help.

    Contact the 501st group in your area. That's what they specialize in.

    Different wearers are different, so each armour will first have to be made somewhat for your body type and then trimmed to fit and adjusted. For that reason, armour is most often sold as kits to build together yourself.

    All the Clone Trooper armour in the movies was computer-generated - it was never tested on real humans - and so it has a few quirks. This means that, if you are going to make it somewhat movie-accurate, you would have to spend a bit more work on it than on other types of Star Wars trooper armour.

    People in the 501st Legion are often very helpful though.
