KRIPTON TOP 501st Approved?

So.... been browsing the net for Boba Fett ESB armor and ran across KRIPTON TOP on Etsy. They claim their items are 501st approved. Can anyone shed light on this? I have submitted a link of their vacuum formed (ready for paint) Fett armor posted on You Tube.

Looking forward to some feedback here. Thanks all!

Brother. No.

Etsy=No
eBay=No, unless it’s man of war or someone legit reselling their stuff.

If they’re not on TDH, it’s most likely not 501st approved.

I’m quickly finding that out, Needed confirmation is all. Thank you brother. No more Replies needed then. :D

Armor by itself is not 501st approved. I can paint

Their stuff looks decent from afar but not many here boast about painting Etsy armor.

I’m sure you could paint it and get approval but the thing is not a lot of people can vouch for the quality of the product. And this guy also sells on eBay and I think is from outside the US, hence the cheaply made dart missiles/collar studs and the outdated 3 piece knees.

Best thing to do is to research ON HERE. Try not to buy through etsy/ebay unless you can see the quality or its made by a reputable person.

Are a few of the big names who are safe to buy some of the big costume parts from. Well known for quality and you won't be disappointed.

Hit up the Cargo Hold for constant runs of things such as Machine Craft Replicas, Mike M Gloves etc.

Don't make the mistake I did and buy bad first time! Buy sensibly and you wont be disappointed!

Kind words! Just trying to help people out and avoid making the mistakes I did! Feel free to PM if you want to ask more questions or such. Having only started a year ago the memory of buying lower quality is still in my mind, especially as I've been shelling out on new stuff recently!

Kripton Top on Etsy is Cuc Black: CucBlack

He does make a lot of approved 501st costume parts for the Biker Scouts and all that. I'm not saying I know anything about his Boba gear, but he's a known vendor in general.

Christian’s items appear very nice but, I wasn’t sure so, turned to TDH for some feedback. His feedback is great from buyers but then again, I really don’t know if any are from 501st troopers. I appreciate your input Mr. Fett(y) Thank you.

He has screwed over tons of people in the scout community and had the privilege of being the only vendor on their bad vendor list for the longest time. He claims to have gotten better but since everything I bought from him was wrong I have no problem reminding people of how horrible he was to people for years.

01Hawk Greetings. The whole reason posted this thread was to get TDH input before I purchased from this vendor. Overall, the feedback has been, well, not good. That said, I appreciate everyone for taking the time to post their opinions and for, most of all, looking out for me. GREATLY APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
