    Why not just buy a pre-formed kit? I don't think I've ever seen vacuuform bucks for sale before.

    If you were to find positive forms for a stormtrooper, you would spend thousands of dollars on them, and thousands more for the equipment to make good armor.

    You'd be WAY better off just getting an armor kit from one of the many excellent armorers out there. Even the most expensive kit you can find would be a fraction of the cost to do it yourself.

    First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment is your best bet for all things Stormtrooper.

    agreed the bucks to make the armor derived from screen used armor are not something people willingly let go of for cheap...if at all.

    The most recently sold bucks were off of Cameron Oakley for a ROTJ suit. I know they didn't go cheap. Unless you're going to sculpt your own forms you're better off buying a kit and FISD is the place to be.
