Looking good so far :) 

You are probably aware  -- need shoulders, knees, and a diamond. 
Back plate has some points in the side pics where it is floating away from the plate below it, may need to tweak the shaping there a bit. 

Really liking the look!

Finally progress has been made. My kit is nearly done, some minor fixes, a loincloth, and a new pair of boots and ill be done

Some app style pictures





The gap in my left gauntlet is for my phone which is setup to look like this


My vibroblade which i forgot to put on before i took pictures
It has a nanobiscotte that i "requsitioned" from a lightsaber for sound



And the blaster pistol which has a repurposed spark 2 for light and sound

Great work! Kit is looking good!

Soft goods are all going to need some weathering since it's present on the plates.
The bottom 2 plates of your backplate are floating away from you  -- visible in side photos. Either need better securing or shaping tweaks, and your backplates shouldn't tuck into your waist items.

It's really close :)

I adjusted my backplates and I think they look better now


Are these boots approvable? I want to make sure before I buy them


Also any tips on weathering my softparts? I was thinking just dragging them through some dirt but i dont know how well that will stay on

Kit is looking good. I think top of back plate needs to be formed a little bit so that it sits flush to your shoulder blades.

Boots are good

With black soft parts, running through wet mud helps but also using spray paint to mist it. Use grays and browns/light brown. I just got approved and the black flight suit and vest was the one thing I had to keep weathering because its hard to show up on pics

Reason is absolutely right.

Heat the top corners of that backplate and try to roll them over and in to mitigate that gap. You might end up trimming some stuff but dont cut too much or you will be back to the gap
