I've got the same Shepperton armour on a mannequin too! Got it half price from amazon as some complete idiot who bought it before me had just opened the box, then taped it shut again, then wrote "I ordered a complete armour set not a DIY KIT!!" on the box itself. How the hell did he imagine you could put it all on in one piece?!
Well saved me a few hundred quid!!
Well their loss is your gain mate
I got mine from Amazon too as even the regular price there is over £100 better than buying from SDS direct
. I did splurge out on a set of boots from SDS to go with it though which are very nice soft leather which is essential to stop the grieves from riding up when wearing the armour. I also bought several neck seals before settling on the SDS one as the most accurate to what is seen on screen and the most comfortable to boot.

Cheers mate, I couldn't really see this anywhere else to be honest. A friend donated the mannequin and that was it. It does still catch me unawares sometimes when I walk in and see it

Beauty may be skin deep, but dumbass goes all the way to the bone.
You know its true mate, some don't have the sense they were born with

Thanks mate I'm glad you like it, it is real fun to wear out in public, I have never had so many pictures taken, and you don't have to smile and look interested when the nutters try to talk to you

I'm not a dedicated SW fan by any means, but if I could splurge on SW armor I'd probably want a custom Mandalorian battle armor in camo / darker color scehemes. I don't want to be Boba Fett, but I want to be a Mandalorian bounty hunter / enforcer doing my own thing.
I've always been a big Stormtrooper fan so this was logical for me. I shouldn't but I am already thinking maybe Biker Scout next
I do love the Mandolorian look too though we have a great Boba Fett and Jango Fett who troop with us some times, and a number of other Mandos.
