I don't know if this is the right section to create this thread but here goes anyway!
I like to get into buckets someday but personally, I prefer it comes in unpainted kit form.
I only have an ABS Stormtrooper helmet from Efx. I bought 3 Hasbro phase 1 but didn't come around to modding them.
So, I thought I put up this thread for those, like me, who someday or even now wants to get in on buckets. Be it Stormies, Clones, Mondalorians, Vader, Sith, Bounty Hunters etc etc etc., please share your wares here. Obviously, if you got a full suit. Don't be shy to share.
And advise, if possible, where can one get those that are well made, accurate and what kinda pricing can one expect to pay.
Thanks and look forward to your piccies!

Well as far as Stormies go, a really great artist named Damian Jablonski did this move along from ANH, he does the best Canon Sandtrooper Armour out there.
He is from Poland, and he does other versions I believe. This lid was about $400 door to door, and he delivers, ( sold my armour to fund saber related stuff) I have the armour I did still from a couple years ago. His armour is widely know as the best. A lot of 501st get their amour from him, but he sells ready to wear kits at a higher price also. plus.google.com/u/0/110104037177630618913/posts
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
