Ok, So I decided to make an endor trooper and have started to slowly gather my items. I already have the Shirt, boots, and ANH Replica. I am finding I am running into a bit of a quandary. What do you all think for a endor trooper a Vest or extra long labcoat painted? I have looked over member profiles and there seem to be a nice varity. So I was just wondering what all of your ideas on it were.

Trench coats are awesome, IMO... I like the flow when I walk! Very Happy

You can always start simple, then add to it. That's what I am doing. Vest first, then trench coat. If the Sportsman's Guide ever gets the hooded jacket back in stock, I'll probably get one, too.

We're getting more ERTs here in Denver, and variety is a good thing.

I'm doing a trench coat version first, then will likely add the vest for an additional option :-)

Yeah, that is what I have decided to do. Going with the Trench and a E-11 kit because I got a Hasbro E-11 here at the house. (Weird how I happen to just have it laying around lol) I have The Shirt, and the Boots In hand and the ANH Replica is being shipped this week.

It's really personal preference. I did the trench coat one first, as it was my favorite, hands down. Now that I've done it, I didn't care for how much it covered up the ammo pouches, etc.

So, after much thrift store shopping, I found a hooded khaki jacket that's perfect! Bam! It's now an Endor camo hooded jacket that I really enjoy!

Yep. Spend a couple of months tracking down the M1956 pattern web gear and the duster just covers it all up Neutral

Just a Quick Update with a question.


Items collected:
Shirt Bought/Arrived
Boots Bought/Arrived
Cloth ANH Replica Bought/Arrived
Labcoat Bought/Arrived
Pouches Bought/Arrived


I am going to buy the rest of the peices today. Still up in the Air about the Endor Rifle or just having a versatile E-11.

The Lab Coat I ordered Arrived. I ordered the long one. I put it on and I found out it comes down to my knees. Should I try to match the Fabric and sew on a extension so the bottom of my Trench will go to my knees? I think having a long trench coat will look better. Also do I just remove the pockets from the lab Coat or just paint them? Any tips would be appericated.

That's where I'm at at this point as well!

Us BIG and TALL build guys look better in a trenchcoat anyways. Wink

Donberto- just leave the pockets on & paint 'em- then they are still usable- I put my gloves in them, makes sure I don't loose them!

Obey Wann- Piiiiiccccccs!
