awesome! yeah add me to the list
me, me,me,me yes add me to list also. and a big thanks also.
FP - I've sent a couple of PM's without a response. I'm still very interested in a set of armor (ESB) when you get some time.
JP... I don't doubt he's got your back, but if you read a few posts back... he mentions being out of material and moving all of his equipment to another location?
All that on top of what he has got going on personally...
Hey Guys and Gals !!!
Ok, it's all done. I'm very sorry I didn't get numbers up last night ... I passed out after pulling a 24
There were a couple of more that went this morning before the post closed at noon today... but we're done.
There are smaller items and favors that will go out Monday. I'll start posting all of the tracking numbers now. So look to page 1 in the next half hour for your #.
Thanks Mojo ! Yes, i will be doing an interest list for those here that have posted (and some that PM'd) for another round as soon as the equipment and materials get to their destination. Jedi-Paramedic, I got your back This list will be on Post #1 on page #1 with the shipping info (the list is already started).
Thanks so much again, to each and everyone one of you for your patience through this. We're a week behind schedule, and I do apologize for that. But as stated in my last post, I included a little something for your patience
Numbers coming ......

NP Fettpride, take it easy, don't fret, this hobby is all about hurry up and wait.
I look forward to talking to you when you are ready to go, and grats on everyone who got in this last run. Let us know how it looks when you get it! I am especially interested in the curvature of the chest plates, FP said they would work for either Male or Femme Mandos. I would love the opinion of our female Fett variants.
You have gone beyond excellence here with your work, and customer service. I really look forward to meeting you in April at the JB event.
Hope the move of equiment goes well and you will be with you wife soon.
And we look forward to meeting you as well Danielle
you need to get some rest FP you've earned it
I just saw I was on the list for the next run... I'm really excited
quick question... don't know if you've answered it. will the gauntlets be ready when the armor ships? how much are the gauntlets?
The gauntlet pics are coming, in a few days at most. Stand by
That day shall be known as...
The day the Earth stood still.

When will you start to open a list for gauntlets?
Thank you god that my armor shipped. I ahd a major armor failure today and I need to replace it and the rest of my armor.
Oh and my Gauntlets too!
Thanks for all the hard work FP!!!!
Yea I will need one set of gauntlets for sure, have one but we will both need them ^_^ **** man my list grows with you daily! You need to stop (not really) making things I am willing to spend cash on! ^_~
I'm in for gauntlets as well...lol
im also in a for guanlets, pm'ed ur way.
pm sent for payment info please check your pm box, and many thanks for letting me get this armor.
Chris, amongst all the madness at the moment, if you do start a gauntlet run I wish to be placed on it. Thanks.....but at your own pace.
I think the tracking number on my shipment is messed up.
USPS # 0307 1790 0001 5323 3181
All I get is "There is no record of this item. "
It looks like all of the others are good. Maybe mine is just a bit slow but when you get a second can you double check my tracking number.
My armor arrived this morning and is as great as expected, the shapes are so much more different to the V2 set, it's all new! I can't wait to start work on it getting it ready to paint. Then I have to find someone to paint it!
When he sent it? Because sometimes you must wait 1 or 2 days before they put your package ON.
FP - I know you have a lot on your plate. Interested in ESB armor and gauntlets. Please just PM me when you get a chance. Hope all is well.
Just got the armor! :thumbup
Thank you agian for the extra envelope of goodnees. That is just awesome.
Well I guess its time to sell the BM armor.
Awwww, no fair you got yours first!!!!!
Got my armor today. I was on my way home from work, and I thought to myself, "Wow, it would be awesome if my armor came today." And there it was, sitting on my pourch. I was like a kid on Christmas. It is MORE amazing than i thought, and that's saying a lot, cuz i thought it was pretty freakin sweet already. Can't wait to get started. FP -
FP, PM me some pricing info so I know how much to send you next week. The one set of armor and two FP Buy'ce. Gauntlets I will also get in on, but probably a week or two after the armor and helms.
I tried to PM ya, but you must be a busy man. Can you drop me a PM with some pricing and I have a few questions to ask you (outside of the public forum)
I got mine today!!!!!!
I love this set, it fits wonderfuly! The knees have a perfect arc to them, I also have to say the curveature on the chest armor is unbeliveable!
getting worried, havent recieved a pm answer for payment info, hope everythings ok.
Got mine today!!!!
Now, what do I do with the cold cast inserts???
Small update -
I'm getting ready to go into "black out" mode pretty quick. This is to complete my relocation to Indiana. (disconnecting utilities, no internet, ect.) I will still know what's going on by keeping in touch with my wife and friends, but I will not be able to post regularly, or answer PM's for a little bit. I'm not sure just how long yet. But as soon as I "land" home, I will be picking up where I left off. It shouldn't be more than a week at the most.
For the next few days, I will be catching up on any of the smaller items that some of you have asked for (will be sent to post). I will also be posting an update on my "Public Announcement thread" as well.
Thanks everyone ! I'll see you on the flip side. Hang tight !
Wish you a safe relocation!, cant wait for you get setup again so i can get a set of Armor, gauntlets and a bucket!..
Hopefully my rocket and whipcord bar are amongst those "smaller items"
Good luck with your move Chris!
Armor arrived today. Awsome work! Now I got work to do
Oh, and I just wanted to say a special Thank You for that little "Note" that was included in my box. That was very stand up for you FP, and has certainly cemented any future business you have with me in the future.
Good luck with the move FP!
I'm moving this weekend as well, but unlike you I'm only moving 5 minutes away! Still, it has put work on my new FP armour on hold until I'm settled. She's all trimmed and sanded awaiting a nice coat of primer. It's killing me not being able to work on it!
I got my armor today.
All I have to say is WOW!
This is my fourth set of armor, and this stuff is amazing.
All of my armor up until now I was a little on the small side, but the sculpt on this set is awesome. I can honestly say that I don't think I would be trading this armor out.
FP you are really talented.
Guys I am not blowing smoke and sunshine, trust me this is the goods!
Now where is the sandpaper!
Yes it looks like this might be it for me too.
I could finally start painting mine.
This will be the year I finishe my ESB suit.
all kinds of goodies are coming this year.
Hello, I am very intrested in the Cod plate and the knee pads. I alrady have the chest, back and butt plates. Does your armor look different when painted Vs. sintra armor? The armor I curently have is sintra. Thanks in advance!! Cheers!!
patiently waiting for paypal info to purchase some esb armor.
Hi FP, hope the relocation's going as planned!!
When you get a chance, I've PM'd regarding a full ROTJ kit.
No pressure, just wanted to let you know it was there!
I need taken off the list please, had major money issue arise that the wife needs help with, thanks and sorry about this, Chuck.
Sorry to hear that Wolverine solo.
Would you mind if I took your slot?
yep go ahead, the wifes insurance didnt cover as much for kidney dialysis as we thought it so I'm gonna do everything I can and then some.
Erm... Sorry to butt in guys, but I PM'd FP on the 27th of Feb to see if I could get myself on the list.
Obviously, due to his commitments, he's not had time to respond/update the list.
So with that in mind - and I don't want to tread on anyone's feet here - if someone's pulling out of the list, I think its fair that I should get first shout?
Ideally, hopefully there's still enough room on this list for us both D_N...
FP to decide upon his return maybe???
Here's to the hope that he can just add you to the list!
Hey everyone !
A small update -
Just checking in from my road trip home. I'm still a couple of days away from home (got a bit of late start). I'm in Utah now. But my equipment is already arriving in intervals at my home in Indiana. So when I get there, it's all good. It won't be but a couple of days longer than my projected date for starting the next round.
I will be updating the list as I get time in between wireless access points across the U.S.
thanks for hangin in there for me everyone !!
On one final note for this update, there were a bunch of boxes shipped Friday for members that ordered the smaller items. At this point, everyone should be taken care of (besides the few FPH guys ) .
Some of those members that are now fulfilled include (so those members can rest at ease) ...
And many more All DC #'s will be provided upon request, as there is little time at the moment. But rest assured, your items will be arriving to you, before I even get home I always make sure I have my obligations met before I take a trip, or anything of that nature. I'd hate to get hit by a bus, and have my family here left with empty hands
Thanks to everyone for all their patience and support in this last two weeks. It's all going to start leveling out now (the craziness that is).
Woohoo mine is finally in the mail. Glad to see that you got it in the mail Chris and even better to see that your making across the country. I should have just told you bring it with you and I could have come picked it up in your stop over here in Utah. I could have thanked you personally for the armor. Get home soon and safe.
Glad to hear you are nearing home Chris. I sent you a couple PMs if you could get back to me when you get a chance I have been anxiously awaiting your return so I could grab a few things from you. Like those two helmets and a set of armor like we talked about.
Let me know when the time is right!
PS- Your wife and you are both in my thoughts constantly, I hope she and you are both doing well. Having been there I know how hard it is and I am sending some good vibes your guys' way.
Thanks Chris! Take it easy on your way back!
have a safe trip FP
Hey everyone !!
I made it !!! 2186 miles, in 53 hours - this includes 2 sleep breaks. One for 6 hours, and one for 8 hours. So actually, the driving aspect of it was only about 36 hours I got in at about 11:45 pm Monday night. Either way you slice it, it should have been a 3 1/2 day trip. I couldn't live with that And I've pretty much been asleep every since
So I'm officially HOME. I'm now a *hoosier* I suppose
My equipment has not arrived yet, but due any day. I have ordered materials, so all is moving along nicely. I should be ready to get back into the swing in a few days. So just so ya know
Thanks for all the well wishes everyone - now I'm off to get into the PM box for you guys and gals
Welcome home Chris
Welcome to the Mid-West Chris. Glad to have you aboard.
YaY! welcome home!
Grats on getting home Chris! Indi isn't all bad. I lived there for 2 and a half years. Hit me up when you are ready for my order!
Hi FP hows it going??
Just checking in to see if you'd seen my PM from Feb 27th,
No pressure bro!!!
Sent a PM back on the 13th, waiting to hear back. No rush tho, i've got a quite a ways to go on a few things yet...
fp, is there any way i could get just a set of rotj knees?

Please accept my apologies for the delays. I posted a small update on my announcement thread as well. The following pertains to this thread ..
The only semi bad news is, that when all of my equipment and molds arrived (the rest that were lagging), it took me a few days to notice that the oven/heater built into my vac form system was obliterated There is a lot of ceramic in the top of the rig, and it was shattered. So I started rebuilding and re-wiring it today. It will be up and running in a few days.
Sure, I was upset, but in the grand plan, I knew it could be fixed, so I didn't lose any sleep over it, as no one here should either Just another little speed bump. But hey, 2100 miles is a long way for a rig like that to travel between two freight companies, it could have been worse (public display of positive attitude)
The only problem with the vac machine delay is, by the time I have it up and running in a couple/few days, it will almost be time for me to get on a plane for Dallas to attend the Jeremy Bulloch event - as the wife is selflessly insisting that I go . I wasn't going to go, but she put me in my place
I received a new plastic shipment too, so it's all ready to go when I return.
The gauntlets are still coming. It was decided that they would be delayed a wee bit longer until after the Jeremy Bulloch event (sorry guys and gals). But the production molds still needed a little bit of that tweaking that I talked about earlier in this thread that I never got around to quite yet. So one more run of armor, and the gauntlets will follow. This time for sure (barring a natural disaster ).
So that's my news guys and gals. My sincere apologies for not posting an update in the last week or so. I've been losing track of time very easily. I knew the first week or so of my wife's treatment would be a very hectic time keeping appointments (many of them per day) and being educated as we went along, but I suppose I didn't know just how much. It's just been a whirl wind. Everything has finally leveled out, and I am settled in.
There are MANY PM's in my box, so to those tht have sent messages, or even called for that matter, please be assured, you were not being ignored by any means. I've just not been at the computer much, and haven't had time to read through everything and respond yet.
Again, please accept my apologies for the delays. As I said above, everything has finally leveled out. Spring is hear, and I smell hot plastic and fiberglass
Hey Chris, listen to your wife, you absolutely deserve to be there for the presentation, take it easy bro
Glad to hear things are on track Chris was starting to worry a little ,
It would be a crime if you were not there to present the costume to Jeremy, you totally deserve it for the amazing work you do for the Fett community :thumbup
Passing on my regards again (on this thread), I don't want to post on the update thread till every one has seen your last post
That is too bad about your machine...moving does have its tragedies but you can look at the bright side of this...at least you are well and good and getting into your groove I sure wish that I was going to the JB event...new job is keeping me away from this one
BEST OF LUCK!!
Glad to hear you are back in action Chris. I will be here patiently waiting for my chance at FP armor.
Im newish here and dont want to be bothering you with all you have going on...
Im interested in a set of armor and bucket whenever you get sorted out. No rush
Best wishes from Ireland man!
pm sent regarding getting a full set of ESB armor
When you get up and running again please shoot me a PM regarding armor and gauntlets.
Congrats on the move, hope you'll be out of boxes soon.
Hey, I am glad to hear that you made it and congrats on the Jeremy Bulloch project!! I wouldn't pass that up either. But when you get back and everything is back up and running, I would be intrested in those gauntlets I've heard so much about! Also, I could use a back plate and possibly a neck plate as well. My other backplate dosen't have the slits for the jp straps and I totally forgot to add dents in the armor before I painted. But very intrested in the gauntlets, along with everybody else it seems, and just checking out the prices for those armor pieces. PM me when you get a chance and take it easy!! Cheers!
Ya got a PM Chris
Looks absolutely fantastic, Chris! I hope to get a set of your armor someday.
Welcome to Indiana! (I'm from Northwest Indiana, myself.)
Here's hoping you settle in nicely,
Hi Chris, hope all is well,
Still trying to get added to the list for a full set of V3
Still no pressure
shoot me a PM FP when you get a chance so I know when you need payment, and how much gauntlets are going to be. Thanks
I want a full set too! PM sent
any updates FP?
For those who may not be aware Chris (FettPride) has a lot of personal issues going on right now in his life, there is a thread in the sarlacc pit which goes into more details so if your waiting on PM replies please be patient
Hope no one minds me writing this, it appeared there were a few members who weren't aware of the situation
Fair play bruv... It needed to be said for those that did not know?
Guys please be patient... It may be some time before Chris is back...
Its cool, Just wondering if everything was going ok.
Hope everything is going alright FP. I'll pray for you buddy
I read the post in regards to FPs situation... I'm truly sorry... I feel bad... I didnt know the extent of the situation. FP (chris), you and your wife are in my prayers.
Hey everyone I know FP has had his hands full lately and I hope all is looking up for him. But I did have a quick question that either FP or anyone with his armor could answer for me. I got some bad armor off ebay and an having problems with the neck and back plates. I am hoping to save the other parts of the armor with adding them to hopefully FP armor for the neck and back. So I was hoping that I could get measurments of FP's chest armor. Like the width and length on each piece. That would help me out alot! Thanks and Cheers!
with all that FP has been through lately, the last thing that he needs is some newb posting that they want his armor, so i feel kind of bad posting this, but FP armor is the most coveted around....so with that in mind i would like to send the sincerest wishes and prayers to your family, FP....if and when you come back, and i truly hope you do, i would like to be included in the next run....thanks, and god bless!!
