Hi all.
I'm looking at making Chirrut Imwe. I love the character and the look.

I was wondering if anyone has experience with this vendor?
Are they acceptable?

Thank you in advance.

Hi ChaosCharlie.

I don't know what this costume is like out of the box, but I'm aware of other costumes by this seller which were not approvable out of the box. I know some costumes from China can be upgraded to approvable with work. I suspect something similar could apply here - it won't be approvable out of the box and it would need a lot of work. Unfortunately, the pictures are small enough that I can't see the details I'd need to compare them against what has been approved and give you a good jumping off point list.

One thing I'd be concerned about is that I know this is costume has a lot of stitching details from reading through PandaTrooper's really excellent resource on Chirrut. (You can find that here - http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=81665&highlight=chirrut - It is an AMAZING resource). If you are considering this vendor, I would at least request additional pictures from the seller to compare against the resources PandaTrooper compiled to see how much of the details are there and if the modifications are something you'd be comfortable doing.

Hi! Did you get the information you were looking for? I got my Chirrut Imwe approved now and if I can be of any help, let me know! Smile
