-Bit big for me (5' 9"), but that's just life.
-There's a good amount of noise when walking around, but they don't call them Stormtroopers for nothing, right? This would probably be alleviated slightly if it fit me better. Parts clang against each other as it is, though.
-Getting this outfit on and off isn't easy. You're absolutely gonna want someone to help you. I mean, I guess you could do it yourself, but I imagine that'd be pretty hard.
-The effectiveness of the Velcro on the included black bodysuit is dependent slightly on how well the costume as a whole fits you. For example, if you're a bit short for it (like me and apparently Mark Hamill), the shoulder guard may come too close to the arm guard, or the arm guard may come too close to the wrist guard.
-Don't plan on sitting down in this.
All that said, onto the positives:
-It looks great.
-The helmet is relatively comfortable, though it would almost definitely get stuffy in there after awhile. Vision is dependent on how you angle your head, and it isn't great, but it could be much worse. If you want to wear glasses in it, it's possible, but it'll be less comfortable. Granted, I have a slightly bigger head than some others. You could compensate for lack of space by trimming down some of the cushioning in the helmet.
-The parts seem pretty sturdy. I wouldn't bang them against the wall or anything, but it seems they might take a few hits (unlike actual Stormtrooper armor). I'm careful with the helmet, though, because it certainly doesn't seem as sturdy as the rest of it.
And lastly, in case anyone's wondering, here are some related products that you don't need if you buy this:
-Ribbed neck cover (I was told that my neck wasn't really visible unless you were to lean down and turn my head)
-Black body suit (one's included, don't make the mistake I did)
You've heard about the bad rep this armor gets and you read some maybe not so good reviews. Allow me to put some of your concerns to rest:
Is it film accurate? No to someone who has extensive knowledge about each and every piece of stormtrooper armor. I promise, unless you get needlessly nit picky (like certain costuming groups,) this armor looks fantastic. If you are someone who wants an exact replica, that's fine, and this armor isn't for you. It doesn't have the dings and the disproportionate pieces that the original stormtrooper costumes has. But the armor really does look good. It is still film quality, minus the helmet which I will get to shortly.
Will it fit you? I'm a big guy. 6'0, around 215-220 and it fits well. There is no gap between the ab plate and the chest plate. It overlaps like it's supposed to provided you wear it properly. The standard large undersuit absolutely swallows me whole, so it'll need to be replaced. Some of the pieces such as the forearms and shins are really big, which is good. If you know your way around a rotary tool, you can make them fit just fine. The only comfort issue I had is the thighs. They curl under on the edges, but after sanding them down slightly it's perfect.
The straps are pretty solid. The only complaint is the elastic, which is a touch too stretchy to properly hold the thighs up. Again, with a little tlc, easy fix.
Now onto the helmet. Okay. Everything you've heard about the helmet is true. The plastic is sorta solid, but it splits slightly at the edges where the pieces connect. It's a one piece pre assembled helmet, but the assembly isn't stellar. The bug eye lenses stick out about 4 miles, and are virtually impossible to see through. Would recommend the black series stormtrooper helmet. Film accurate and affordable, minus the small speaker and battery bits in the back.
As stated the undersuit runs big so be prepared to replace it. You'll have to add padding in places but you're gonna have to do that no matter where you get your armor.
It's difficult to get on by yourself but doable if you zip the suit in the front.
Boots and neck seal are NOT included, and to make it look good you'll need to order them. Blaster is also not included, nor is the holster. Thermal detonator canister is included.
The belt is plastic all around and very durable and flexible. Holds everything in place very well. Overall snug fit for the whole upper body, you won't be worrying about it feeling like it's falling apart.
The only other complaint I have is the length of the shipping process, but with a 22 pound package what do you expect I guess.
All in all, if you aren't afraid of some minor work, would easily recommend.
