    Apr 25, 2014, 11:03 AM - ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License! #1

    I am so excited to share this, as it is great news for Star Wars fans but also a win for this community, as long-time members dgasser and gotmaul, the founders of ANOVOS came out of this community! As many know, Museum Replicas held the high-end Star Wars costume license for years, promised much, and delivered little. They lost the license last year and after an insanely long negotiation, ANOVOS was able to pick the license up! They already have a number of projects in the works and are showing off some very early prototypes this weekend at C2E2.


    To me, this is one of the greatest things we see in this hobby; fans like us, who started right here, doing what we love, and eventually taking that passion and being able to make a livlihood from it! Congrats on living the dream!

    Awesome! I picked up one of their Into Darkness costume sets (Spock; no McCoy tunic when I ordered), and the build quality is really nice!

    I've been biting my tongue, only telling close friends for a while about the new project we're involved with.

    It's going to be a busy year! ..not only with the projects but also since several of us in this venture are having babies this summer! Oh boy..

    Does this mean there's a possibility for some metal Jango Westars to become available again? Or am I getting my hopes up?

    Excited either way!

    There is a big discussion on the RPF about that....especially when it comes to the Vader.

    They are working with 501st members to make it acceptable (or as accurate as possible while still being a durable/wearable costume), but also said that some will be and some won't be approved. We will just have to wait and see.

    This is exciting news. Congratulations MonCal and the rest of the team. I subscribed to the newsletter so am excited to see what becomes available in the future, especially for Vader.

    Looks great! I wonder if it'll be possible to buy piecemeal? For example, if I wanted a Bespin jacket, would I have to buy the entire costume?

    Here is one of the posts on the RPF:

    "...we will have options that will service various levels of costuming need. We are still building out buy page drop downs so we will have more information as it comes"

    So I can imagine they may make exceptions based on what you are looking for.

    There's more to 501st membership in most cases. The costume has to meet certain minimum standards, but also has to fit the wearer properly. As such, there's not really an "off the shelf" way to join the 501st unless you happen to be the same body size/shape as the previous costume owner or the manufacturer sells a complete suit that happens to match your dimensions.

    The stuff looks good, but I want to see their fett suits, if they are going to do them.
