I wanted a suit for quite some time and did a lot of research online after going to a costume shop and seeing what was being passed off as an "Authentic" Stormtrooper costume. In the end, SDS was the best bang for the buck, so I settled on the Mega Combo Battle Spec. Unfortunately living in Canada, the exchange on our dollar was about half the British Pound, so I went not with the most expensive (more on that in a minute). Also, we were two weeks away from Halloween so I was worried about receiving it in time for an office party that I planned on wearing it to. Richard assured me that SDS could deliver, so I committed.
I noticed that the price for shipping was high, but nonetheless paid it. After receiving the 2 packages express straight to my door and under 7 days, I was no longer worried or unhappy why the shipping was what it was. SDS packages the suit and the E11 separately in the most professional manner I have ever seen!!
Instantly turning into a 7 year old, I raced into the house and set to opening my new prize. I think SDS knows how much Star Wars fans love this type of stuff, so they package it so that it is as much fun opening it as receiving it!!!!!
IF anyone worries about receiving their suit in anything short of pristine, fear not, because SDS uses more bubble wrap than legally allowed in most countries.
The only hiccup I had was that my helmet was a little wrapped after unwrapping it from the box. After talking with SDS and finding out that the helmet was cast and assembled soon before it was shipped and then finding out it went from UK to Memphis Tenn USA to Calgary AB Canada within 24 to 48 hours, I think the temperature change played havoc with it. Fear not, give the helmet some time to reshape back to its original form, and all was good. You may need to trim the rubber brow a touch once it settles, but that is minor. You'll notice some imperfections in the helmet, but that is due to the fact that the model was hand made back in the 70's, so computer generated molds weren't available. But that is what makes it!!!
The fit is excellent, but I am 5'10" and 180, the body suit and gloves are great and the armour and straps / Velcro are superbly assembled. E11 and holster are probably my favorite pieces, but I'll let you see for yourselves when you get yours!!
Thanks again SDS
The armour fits him very well thanks to the velcro straps and has lasted well at a few parties so far, easy to keep clean with a cloth and soapy water. Very happy with the quality of it all, well made, easy to assemble and take off - even after a few drinks.
Thank you again Andrew for helping to make my husband's childhood dream come true!
