New trooper looking for boots and a blaster

Post by icejedi08 » Tue Aug 23, 2016 9:24 pm

I just ordered my Anovos stormtrooper kit but I still am going to need boots and a blaster. One place I've seen for boots is Imperialboots.com that looked pretty good but they don't have 8 1/2 and they don't do returns which is concerning to me. Blasters on the other hand I'm having an even harder time finding. From everything I've read I should stay off ebay and etsy but doing that has left me with few options. It doesn't help that I cant settle on either an e-11 or something larger like a t-21. Does anyone have any other specific suggestions? Thanks

I got my boots from TK Boots (http://www.tkboots.com/) and my blaster was a Hasbro mod. Definitely check out the FISD forums at whitearmor.net.

I'm real happy with the e-11 kits I put together from doopydoos.com, but they do take a little Dremel finesse to better shape a few of the parts, and grind out a few areas to replace with actual parts (like the allen screws on the barrel).

Tkboots is the way to go in my opinion. They are beautiful. I also think they only do whole sizes and rightfully so.

As far as a blaster, I'm a hyperfirm lover.
