    Any thoughts on what molds they used to recast here?

    I would guess silicone. Or a fiberglass mold depending on undercuts it would be doable. Kinda strange looking if CF.:confused

    hmm, looks weird. Good from far but close up CF can look nasty imo.

    Kinda looks like they recast from a crappy Rubies TK. Cool suits, otherwise.

    It's probably stronger than "real" stormtrooper armor.

    Looks like a Rubies Supreme copy...

    If Star Wars was real, I'm sure the Stormtrooper suits would be CF. They probably took splashes off of plastic or FG Stormtrooper suit pieces to make the molds, and dry carbon cloth for drape ability.

    I think they look awesome.

    I'm kinda curious if any of our San Diego 501st members know any of these guys...

    MicDavis knows everyone. I bet he knows at least one of them, if not the company president!! How about it Michael? Am I wrong?

    They look really amusing. I don't think I need to point out the numerous inaccuracies with them.

    I also really like the suit. it looks like it could be some sort of stealth special operations armor.

    Looks interesting but I agree, the bucket looks like a rubies knock off...

    The carbon fibre material looks great but looks weird on a ST helmet...
