    AP ESB Stormtrooper

    With the new school semester starting I have some tuition to pay off and I'm unfortunately going to have to sell my AP TK armour, but in the mean time I have a new suit I'm slowly getting together. The suit is a basic ESB and should be up to snuff for EIB, but I just never submitted myself for approval.

    The armour has yellowed a bit to a mild cream colour due to the desert sun; it might be a good candidate for a sandtrooper conversion. The costume has some wear and all cracks have been repaired. The interior of the helmet is black with Plastidip and the lenses are shade 3 green.

    Considering the kits sell new for $875 shipped +4% Paypal fees, I was hoping to part with it for about $1050 shipped but I would accept offers on it.









    Here are two images of my costume in action at a Phoenix Suns basketball game a year ago.

    Forgive my ignorance, but why would you expect to get more for used (and outdated) AP armor than the cost of brand-new kit?

    Assembly of an AP kits is not simple, they come completely untrimmed and it can take weeks to a month to assemble a single kit. Considering these kits cost roughly $900 new, an extra $150 includes full assembly, shipping, and paypal fees.

    What Andy said...and how is it outdated? It is exactly the kit they sell now? When it comes to TK armor, it will always sell for more than the kit cost due to the things Andy mentioned. This is actually a very good price for a suit that looks to be in very good shape. AP is one of the better TK suits out there.

    Due to concerns over the yellowing, I am willing to repaint the entire outfit at no cost. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
