  6. Probably going to stop working on my Vader for a while. Need to finish up my pilot's license and school is giving me a mental breakdown. 


    What I might do on my downtime:

    - properly smooth my dome and give it the indentation, repaint and apply correct clear coat.

    - Save on parts. 

    - Reconstruct Shins, hopefully start before the end of the year.

      Sorry to hear about school--I know the feeling though. Good luck!


      What do you mean by "Reconstruct Shins"? Sounds interesting? What skins do you have?

    2. ofimes2671


      My original shins are completely shattered due to improper construction and this dummy didn’t know how to scale objects in Pepakura.


      i have to rebuild mine completely, I used the PEP file from like... firefek? He has a thread with all his PEP files on the RPF.

  7. APPROVED 8/28/17!

  8. Looking for an ESB Vader Helmet as I am FINALLY going to start putting together my Vader costume. Does anyone have a helmet for sale?

      Personally I do not but I would highly suggest posting up a thread to introduce yourself, not only will we be able to give you some tips and such about building Vader but by making that post it'll mean the Junkyard will be visible to you as you will have passed the minimum post count. Then you'll be able to browse the numerous helmets and their runs here on the forums ;) 

  9. Also - what is this - Anarchy design mantle $300 shipped, new - is this the shoulder armor with bells?  If so what size it it? Prowse or scaled? Thanks!

  10. I am interested in the Korbath shin guards $115 - I can offer $115 including shipping. I live in TX.

  11. Hello - are you still looking for a ROTS Helmet? I have a MR ROTS Ep III Limited Edition 0052 for sale.  I have not posted it here yet.




  12. Hello! Is the ANH Quasimodo helmet still available?

    1. Centurion


      Hi, the helmet is sold. Sorry for that. I have to mark this at the topic.

    2. DarthViticus


      QQ - I have a lead on another ANH Quasimodo helmet + armor. What did you think about the quality of the helmet and for trooping with it? Did you have the armor as well? Also, can you share the price range one would expect to but a helmet?


      Thanks, Robert

  13. Your saber looks outstanding!  Better than Vaders!  Did you mod it?  Nice blades, great brightness!!!!!  Looking good mate!  Just saw your troop report, also, you won the day today with those pics!  Most likes.  Congrats Sewey!  Hope you're doing well!


  14. Hello. Do you make ANH helmets? Your ESB/ROTJ helmets are superb. Thanks.

      Hey mate I see you're using the 'Write a Public Message on user feed" quite a bit :)

      While there's nothing wrong with that you would more likely to get replies if you just sent people PM's using the Personal Messenger here on the forums since more often than not people prefer to keep transactions and negations on purchases private hence using PM's. Just thought I'd mention that in case you were worried that people weren't replying to the messages you've been leaving on their profiles :y:

    2. DarthViticus


      Ha yes - I am part of several forums and this one is a little different on how to communicate with others :) I do see the "Message" which I assume is the PM so will definitely us that for price communication and more personal convos. I am very happy with the support that I have been given here and very much enjoy meeting others and sharing like interests. Thanks again.

      Not a problem mate, happy to help :y:

      And yeah the forums are a tad different since we upgraded not too long ago so no stress at all 

  15. I am interested in the ANH gloves. I have a set of Porty AHN gloves that I will re-sell.

      OK cool.  That's perfect.  I'll text you when I get to the area.  I'm pretty far so I'm leaving early since I'm sure there will be some form of Friday traffic.


      1) Weird.  AP's lists are always long.  I'd actually recommend 2 people: DarthBrooks here on the forums and a guy named Enes who you can find on the Darth Vader Movie Accurate Costumes Facebook pages.  They are awesome, accurate and you won't have to wait as long.  Both CP and FP have long waits as well.  


      2) Avoid anarchydesigns!  He's a scammer.  There was a thread about him as he's changed his ebay name a few times to hide his identity.  The eFX helmet will be perfect.  I actually have scaled (normal sized) Portumac armor coming in the next week or 2 if you want to buy mine.  I paid $438 shipped but you can have it for $400.  His production time is a month so again, no wait if you snag mine.  Definitely sell the Korbanth armor.  


      Oh good!  I think I'm on there too.

    3. DarthViticus


      Great - We will be at IKEA around 3:45pm. We'll park on the North side of the building facing the ballpark. I will be in a white Nissan Armada. Text when your around there.


      I will look up the cod pieces and not purchase the anarchydesign set. I was reading up on them and some used them and some did not because of recasting.  I was thinking to sell my MR ROTS and buy a Darth Ugly - will that matchup with the Porty armor do you think?

    4. DS-23710


      Cool.  I will.


      I'd message bookface and see if that bucket will match up with that armor.  I'm not familiar with the Prowse-size armor other than reading how large it is on most people.  

  16. Sorry for bringing this up again - but do you still have any of the "B" ANH CODS available? Thanks!

  17. Thanks for all your likes! Is this a blast or what?

    1. TDurden


      I'm having a ball. I really like to see everyone's troops--especially the charity and hospital visits!

    2. DarthFrazier


      I'm doing the local Children's Hospital in two weeks. It's so humbling. My wife said, "Aren't you glad you wear a mask so they don't see any tears?"

  18. Hello - I commented on your COD post to sign up for a ANH cod. Can you confirm I am on the list? Thanks!



    Just Ryan doing some Maul stuff in between our last submission photo session

  20. I am interested in the chest piece. I have a Prowse sized chest piece.

      Can you confirm the dimensions of the armor you have and was this crafted by you or another armor manufacturer? Thanks.

    3. DarthViticus


      Hello. I met a 501st member here in TX that has an armor set that I can try on. I will be selling my Korbanth ANH armor instead of trades. Thanks again.

    4. DarthViticus


      Hello. I received interest in this armor from my facebook account but I talked to you first about selling it so I can sell it for $350 including shipping and tracking unless this is international.  If interested I can send a PayPal invoice and I can pack it up and ship out Saturday.  I am in TX. Just email your PayPal email address and contact info including shipping address and once shipped I will email the tracking number.




  21. Hello! Do you have a list for your CODs? I am building an ANH Vader - here is my build page - WIP


    We created the robe and cape and we plan to make the bodysuit but I'm not sure we have the extra patience to make the COD piece :)


    1. DarthBrooks


      Yes I have a list. Cape and robes turned out great :) I can put you on the list. I can't say when I can get it done because I'm going on vacation but it will be faster than any other maker anyway :) 


      The price is 170 euro plus paypal fees. The price includes shipping. You can pay when I have it done.

    2. SithSGM


      Please add me to your list for an ANH cod.  Thank you in advance.

  22. Ok, so just under a year ago I started building my Vader. I purchased a used Rubies Supreme costume knowing good and well the amount of work I would need to put into it. I started with the mask and gave it a good amount of weathering as well as a repaint/new lenses/molding to make it more screen accurate. I also repainted the helmet so it would be a black in the sun as opposed to the dull brown. I am trying for an ESB style Vader. Next, I fixed the belt by using an old real-leather belt I had. I did keep the original boxes and buckle. I purchased some black costume boots that come just under my knee, but give me an extra inch to achieve the Vader 6'8". All other parts are as they came. I plan on buying new gloves and fiberglass shoulder armor in the future. I am currently working on my saber, I bought a 2005 MR ESB Vader lightsaber and am converting it to single LED with parts from TCSS. I will have a red day blade and another clear (properly defused) all-purpose blade. I'll try to post pictures as I go along.

  23. Hey buddy, I have ordered 5 Kylo patches today! thanks in advance

  24. First time Build for the 501st ANH Vader from the Cincinnati area.

  25. More red and black paint arrived.  Ready for the next troop.

  26. Hello, my name is Robert and I have been a die hard Star Wars fan since it was debuted in 1977.  As a teenager, I was so inspired by the character Darth Vader that I talked my parents into purchasing a Don Post Darth Vader helmet which turned out to be the Standard version.  I still have it to this day and have since ignited my love of the character through cosplay as the dark lord at conventions and events.

    I am excited to continue my journey of creating the character I grew up with to make other kids (and adults) as happy as I was when I saw the helmet, lightsaber and sounds of Vader entering a room.
