New Canon "The Mandalorian"
« on: Oct 15, 2019, 10:41 PM »
I know we still have a little bit before this comes out on Disney+, but I am starting now to fabricate weapons (I have already 3d printed parts for the rifle) and am in the process of doing to the pistol.  I will soon be following up with the armor and soft goods, less the helmet, which I will purchase from Anovos, and is in production now (I am on the pre-order list).

So, my question is, I don't see any information listed here for this set.  Is anyone working on a CRL or anything else for it?  Or am I blazing the path?

CRLs for new canon costumes usually are published after the end of the season of the show in which they appear.  That shouldn't stop you from getting started on your build, because unless you're a super-speed builder, there will be plenty of time between the CRL publication and you finishing the build. As long as you're accurate to the visual references already seen, you'll probably be one of the earliest approved ones unless Anovos takes a stupidly long time to get the helmet out.

Sounds like a plan.  I won't let it hold me up then.  I intend to be as accurate as possible.

less the helmet, which I will purchase from Anovos,

Anovos is notorious for taking years to actually ship pre-orders.

I would strongly caution you against purchasing from Anovos.  They have a F rating with the Better Business Bureau, have a 1 out of 5 star average review, and literally take years to ship orders - sometimes even canceling orders without warning.  Also, while they claim their Mandalorian helmet is a 3d scan of the helmet, having closely compared their promotional images of the helmet with the helmet that was on display at D23, there are several small inconsistencies.

Okay, that is two marks against Anovos.  So I guess it is good thing that I have not paid for it yet, and just got on the pre-order list.  Under the guidance that was set forth when I pre-ordered I will have 48 hours to pay for my order when they send me a notification that it is going to ship or they will cancel.  So now, I need to 3d print off a helmet, and work on that aspect of the costume, if I am to do my own thing.

You're better off cancelling the order, and printing it yourself.  1) It'll be cheaper in the long run, and 2) You'll actually have it before the decade is over.
