Hello all!

My name is Alex and I am a current 501st member living in Florida! For a while I've been wanting to a Rebel Fleet Trooper from ANH and I've finally decided to jump in and start doing some research!

As of now I have found the following items

Boots: https://www.imperialboots.com/product/jack-dlx/

Pants: https://www.rothco.com/product/rothco-bdu-pants

Helmet: https://www.studiocreations.com/howto/rebelfleettrooper/rfthelmet_forsale.html

Shirt: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1080142#1080142

Vest: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=83411

I'm still looking around for the belt, holster, drop boxes, and DH-17!

Please let me know how this looks so far, and if all of these sources are reputable!

I look forward to joining the Rebels and fighting for the freedom of the galaxy!!

Those boots are among the most expensive ways to do it, but they'll work. Decent boots, I just think it's highway robbery what they charge for them, compared to their regular jack boots.

Good pants. But check your local base members to see which pants are most popular. Propper makes nearly the same pants (at about the same price), but the two grays are a little different. Both are approvable, but it looks best when most local RFTs actually match, so see which is more popular locally, and go with that one.

That helmet should be fine.

Phil's shirt and vest are great.

Check DarmansProps on Etsy for belt and holster.

Check Philo's Props on Etsy for the belt boxes. I believe he also does the belt and holsters now, but I haven't seen them in person. Bobby (Darman) has been supplying the 501st and RL quality leather goods for years.

DH17 depends on how much you want to pay, and luck. If you can find the Nerf SH17 "rebel blaster" on Etsy, it's a fantastic option and a very easy conversion... mostly cut off the pull and the dart holder, and then spray paint it black and silver. (note that two I see on eBay right now claim good condition yet both are missing the clear cap that should be at the tip of the scope) Otherwise Darth Hair makes a very nice rubber one (great for trooping), although the cost is considerably higher. And Field Marshall just released a stunning all metal kit, for an equally stunning price.

Hello! I'm working on my fleet trooper costume also!

I was able to find one of the nerf DH17s on ebay for about $45 after shipping. Think I searched "nerf dh17" or popssibly "nerf blaster". There were a couple available when I bought mine a couple weeks ago.

If you have access to a 3d printer, there's a couple different versions of it for free on the thingiverse. I had originally planned to print mine, but our 3D printer is being difficult lately and I don't feel like fighting it right now.

One of the available printer files: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2006422/files
