    Question: TK costume

    How much does a TK costume go for normally in the past year? (with helmet)
    I've seen them going for $500-1500 and am hoping someone is either willing to trade for one or do a payment plan

    What I would like, something under the $700 mark already completed or mostly complete for someone 5'8-9

    Re: Question: TK costume

    Your question is too broad to be answered effectively... too many variables. Are you talking about a kit, or something already built? Are you talking about the most inexpensive option available on evilBay (which is USUALLY ****), or are you looking for the most screen-accurate armor available? There are excellent complete kits w/helmet available for about $500 US, but they must be trimmed and assembled. You can also get a pre-built set of armor custom fitted to your meaurments that is virtually indistinguishable from the film suits for about $2000 US. It all depends on your budget really.

    Remember too that getting the kit to Oz will put a big dent in your budget - a kit may be the best way to go. However, you can find all the info and assistance you need over at whitearmor.net, the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment for the 501st Legion.

    Good luck!

    Your best bet is to go to whitearmor.net. You will find all the TK info you need there.

    I put an order in for ATA armor that is $500US + shipping, untrimmed. The trimming is fairly easy, and there are loads of YouTube vids on it. AP Armor is from Canada and they offer trimmed options for about $1100 I think?

    There are many options that suit (no pun intended) both size and budget.

    whitearmor.net is THE place to start for great info on TK armor and builds. Great people that are very informative and helpful. I bought my armor from a member there and got lots of help throughout my build thread. Definitely avoid ebay armor.
