    Ok. Got my armor today!

    Ok. Got my armor today (If you couldn't figure that out by the subject!). I am pretty happy with it. But I figured I would put it to the test with the TDH community. I think the colors are pretty close but my question is the knee armor. I think they are supposed to be yellow correct? Thanks all.

    The armor looks ok a bit on the flat side

    Richies armor. Yeah I thought it looked ok. This was one area of the costume that I thought would be the first area to upgrade. Down the road. As far as the flat side do you mean thin or flat as in color? How is the color of the knee's?

    This is very useful to me! I have just bought some of his stuff! And in terms of it being flat, if I have the same issue, even though it has been painted could I just heat it up a little bit and bend it to shape?

    I ended up just ordering a new set of armor from WickedBeard. The more I looked at Richie's stuff I didn't like it. I have the WickedBeard armor now and love it! Richies is good if you have a small body type (I am 6'2", wouldn't work for me). RA's stuff will bend some and I am sure with a little work you can mold it to your tastes. I see Richie's stuff being good a very low budget Fett. Since you are waiting for yours to arrive, you will want to upgrade to a better set in the future. (That is the best part about costuming, always room for upgrades!)
    I will say I learned the lesson of you get what you pay for! Ouch!

    Well, I am 5'10'. So I am hoping that the fact they're flat is the only issue as it's the only issue that has been mentioned. Take a hair dryer to it and it should mould a bit better to me.
