    I wonder if that's a photo or an artist's depiction... either way, cool I guess. They must be absurdly busy over there.

    Sweet, but I'll stick with the standard trooper order. Any more word on them at the con?

    Great introductory price for a Vader.

    Interesting. I wonder if they had to get an okay from Disney to make this armor? And if they did, is Disney confirming that shadow troopers are canon?

    It also seems that Anovos will be selling RotJ Y-wing pilot helmets...

    I guess anyone who missed the first kit could get this and spraypaint it white...

    Yes they are a licensed dealer. In order for them to produce anything Star Wars they have to have express permission from Disney to market their items. They are cranking out an amazing variety of Star Wars Props and costumes. Everything I have seen so far puts Rubies to shame in a manner that they deserve. For years Rubies has been producing total garbage, charging exorbitant prices and expecting us to swallow it.

    Well folks there's a new Sheriff in town and the name is Anovos!

    They also released pics for the new Boba Fett Helmet at Comic Con

    Here is a photo of the shadowtrooper from their booth at comic con.
    Looks very different from the promo pic.
    This one is very glossy not satin like the photo of the pre-order product

    I don't know much about the armor kits, or even costumes alone. Only item I own that's prop wise is Weta's Assault Rifle from District 9.

    is $375.00 + shipping a deal for the dissembled shadowtrooper kit? I personally think is a awesome deal, but again I don't know much about this .

    Add Tested was able to get a kit.
    a side note, wouldn't a white chalk stick or white marker/pen/paint work to mark the cut lines inside the armor pieces?

    I have to say, I don't really need one of these or actually want one.

    For that price, however,it would be rude not to get one!!

    Are we confident that the people putting these together will do a good job (speculation, I know)?

    I've told myself I can't order any more things from ANOVOS, until I get something I've already ordered from ANOVOS. But, who in the hell listens to me anyway? I know I don't. & as Yorkie Fett said, I don't want to be rude.
    I am glad that I have until the 17th, for first tier pricing, though. That way, at least, I can tell myself that I took a stand.
    Take that ANOVOS!.... now, here's some more of my money.

    a year later, did Anovos ever ship these out or still on preorder?

    Cause I was going to order the kit but I hate preorders and I think release date was early 2016, but honestly that was a year ago and I forgot, maybe Anovos had no release date.

    Been a year, buckshot reasoning about packaging approval, it's the same * kit as the white trooper, same molds, same boxes, too... and the kits are already pulled..... The REAL reason has to be timing of that massive shipment wave via FedEx...... like when all the trucks left Wonkas factory. :)

    I preordered this kit at the lowest price point and finally picked up my shipment from UPS today, a large 23 pound box that promised hours of trimming and assembly fun before finally being able to waltz around as an imperial Shadowtrooper. Lo and behold, they sent me a regular TK kit... no sleek black, just white plastic as far as the eye can see. I'm getting a return shipping label so they can get me the right kit, but customer service has been a drag. no real phone line (call and leave a message) and their customer chat isn't very responsive. I was going to maybe post some pics and an initial impression of the kit and helmet but I'm not even going to unpack the kit I was sent.

    Oh well, here's to a little more waiting time.

    just had a pleasant experience with cust support chat in getting a RA label. sending incorrect white kit back, expecting a shadow. fingers crossed. its the only option.........sad it happened this way, as its an inconvenience and a huge box, its not like its a jacket of a lightsaber

    I'm sorry this affected you as well. I hope that there isn't widespread armor bleaching going on. I shipped out the box yesterday so I'm going to check and see if they cross ship or if I'm going to have to wait for them to get it back and inspect it before shipping out the proper armor.

    Its been a crap shoot recently but I think they are now shipping out once they see marked at shipped. I refused the package from UPS because luckily i could see before i signed for anything. I figured it would of made mine ship out the fastest. I was wrong.
