    After viewing the helmet assembly tutorial, it looks like an ABS-80 helmet kit.

    AKA: "Authentic Props".

    I built up one of those buckets myself, and it looks identical right down to the decals.
    Chances are the suit is the of same maker.

    So has you-know-who and his lawyers changed their position on this issue?

    Hhhm.

    So are we saying it's actually an Authentic Props/ABS 80 ......or some sort of recast?

    Forgive my igonorance but he seems pretty reputable. Certainly knocks out alot of Trooper stuff.

    His ANH suit looks of interest but not if it a recast. I have been stung before before MovieFX.

    Did Darth Infamous give him permission to use his photo?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Steve :)

    It did seem a bit brazen... I'd hoped that it was a sign that things were easing up.

    I'm pretty sure he ASSEMBLED suits for people. Just guessing here, but I don't think he offered that armor for sale. He had a NICE tutorial on building the helmet. I'm * off now that I didn't snag it.


    Kills me how everybody jumps to conclusions.

    Just a guess, but maybe they're referring sales to, or selling for AP. That doesn't explain the pic though. :confused

    Come on.....you didn't think for a tiny second something was up when two well known armor sites go offline on the same day?


    BTW if you google the site and view the cached version you can still get the tutorial with the pics. ;)
