    As the title says, hello! I've met and trooped with several from the Idaho region with my Mando at Boo at the Zoo. Currently for 501st related armor I have an Anovos TK and Null ARC that I've been toying with. I am looking forward to getting to know you guys better and hopefully finishing these armors. (Attached is a picture of my Mandalorian Merc approved armor.)

    Welcome to the boards, we look forward to trooping with you (again). How far along is your TK?

    Both armors are pretty rough. I have the flash cut off and sanded. The ARC trooper's helmet is painted however.

    Great to have you here! We talked at Ammon Days. Sorry for the delay in getting your account activated. Let us know how we can help get that TK together! We've done a few now, it's becoming "old hat" for us!

    :)

    Welcome.

    Missed out on going to the Boo at the Zoo, so we didn't meet up. I am also the Ruus for the Mercs here in Idaho, as well as having a TX from Anovos.

    We may be hosting an armor party in Jan. so that would be a good time to get more work on it. We're in Pocatello, but unless something else breaks between now and then, it will be an option.

    How is Anovos' quality? Playing with the idea of getting myself a TK from them, as well as a Jyn Erso for my wife. Worth it?

    I would recommend Anovos, however, there are other private makers you can get the armor from that will be less expensive. Look up Walt's Trooper Factory and Intergalactic Supply on Facebook. Personally, I wouldn't spend over $600 on Stormtrooper armor. Anything over that is too much.

    Anovos makes decent stuff, but as an owner, and someone who is still on the Anovos TK Builder Facebook page, I'd avoid them like the plague right now. Serious rumors abound that Anovos lost their Disney licence. Additionally, it appears Anovos items have been pulled from Disney stores. Their delivery time is horrendous even if they have stuff in stock. Some of their stuff has popped up on grey market websites for extremely discounted prices. It's unknown if the stock was stolen, is B grade pulls, or just "excess" factory runs that hit the black market.

    As Erin said, I'd look at Walt's Trooper Factory or some of the other recommended sellers on Whitearmor,net, or through the 501st pages right now. I'd wait until things settle out with Anovos, but based on their past, I would not expect that to be any time soon. You'll pay less and get thicker plastic, which will hold up better in the long run.
