I'm super stoked for the Stormtrooper kit too. I just hope I haven't gotten myself in over my head. Check in next year when I'm wearing the helmet and some sweats because I threw in the towel on the kit building...
I'm not expecting the Stormtrooper armor to be made of the same materials that they used in the movies, but I am expecting it to look like the armor and have decent quality.
I guess I can sort of buy the fancy wool, but heck, that seems like a lot of money for a basic outfit. Maybe I don't understand the target market for this stuff and people really want the exact wool used in the costumes.
I'm still floored how an orange jumpsuit costs $1500. Maybe they felt they had to reinvent the wheel on the material for this one too to be 100% prop accurate, but I would be 100% satisfied if they used a modern equivalent nylon/poly blend for 1/4 the price. They priced me out / I'm not seeing the value in 100% movie accurate for that one at that price. If they did the x-wing costume with helmet for $1000 I would consider it, but $1500 and no helmet seems outlandish to a non costumer like me.
