  1. Welcome Allan. My suggestion would be to come out to some of the events, and introduce yourself. See what we do, see the armor up close, and see if that interests you. Generally, a clone is not the first costume you start with unless you have some good assembly skills. But, that does not mean you can't try that first. Most people opt to go with a Stormtrooper, Sandtrooper, Imperial Officer, or something of similar skill level. Don't worry about trying to hunt down an armor kit right now...we can help you solve that problem down the road.

  2. Welcome aboard! If you've not already, sign up over at whitearmor.net, that's the stormtrooper detachment, they can get you squared away with all questions TK, and can even help you find armor your size.

    Welcome Nick. Everyone has given you some really good info. Whitearmor.net is a great resource for trying to figure out what you should purchase. Just don't be to eager to buy something before you do your research. Given your size, the new AM Armor might not be the best way to go. It would require a lot of trimming (more than normal). We have some guys on here that have put that armor together and they always come out of it saying they will never build one again. But, there is no such thing as never building another costume, lol.

    You might want to look at the ATA armor. It is more screen accurate, and if I remember correctly is ABS, which holds up better for trooping. Regardless of what you pick, there are pros and cons to each kit. Just find one that appeals to what you are looking for, and go with that one. Hope that helps.

  3. Hey Michael. Welcome to the MSG. While I have not put together and AM kit, I have heard they are a real bear to put together. Since you are familiar with whitearmor.net, you might try looking at all of your armor options. I know we used to have an FX contact for armor, but I don't think that is an option anymore. Once again, welcome aboard.

  4. Hi Jason, Welcome to the MSG. Feel free to come out to an event sometime and introduce yourself. That's a good way to get an up close look at some costumes and see which one you may be interested in building yourself.

    +1. Don makes a great point. If you aren't sure what costume you want to build, the best way to try and figure that out is to see them in person and go from there. Welcome!

  5. welcome aboard! Primarily, to put any armor together it takes patience and time (don't ask me how long I've been working on my Jodo lol). But you're easily surrounded by some of the best and brightest as far as skills go.

    As far as acquiring said armor, ask some of the tk's around here, or head on over to whitearmor.net, the official stormtrooper detachment of the 501st. All your questions have already been answered, just search around and you will find them.

    Again, welcome aboard, fasten your seatbelt, and prepare for insanity!

    Can't much more to what Ben said other to personally say welcome! The other thing is to watch the events threads and come hang out with us at an event.
