(Write a review) "Ok guys, this is a great easy to obtain approximation of the Mobile Infantry armor. Not a perfect replica but hey, it's made to allow for a reasonable Starship Troopers loadout for airsofting, and I think it accomplishes that. I doubt anyone would want to take their expensive screen-accurate replica stuff out to the field. The contruction is so-so. The rivet fasteners are problematic, as they have rough and even SHARP (as in, yes I cut myself on one) interior bits that will require some touch-up work with a file so that they don't cut you, or wear holes very quickly in whatever you are wearing underneath....followed by your flesh. As mentioned in the earlier review, the color is black instead of grey. Oh well. Also, it comes very flat. You can get it looking quite good with some hand shaping, so that it contours more to your body. The shoulder area does look a bit wide, giving the appearance of a Romulan-ish armor....or something. Again, oh well. I can get over it. I have NOT taken this out to the field yet, so this review does not include a durability opinion, just first impressions. So real quickly, the pros and cons:
Pros: 1. You can buy it here for alot less than a screen-
2. Decent construction.
3. Looks the part.
Cons: 1. Color is wrong.
2. Sharp edges on fasteners need dressing.
3. Straps could use clips instead of buckles for
ease of donning/doffing.
So, there ya go. Inspite of the cons, I am glad I bought this. "For any starship trooper fans this is a must buy. However do have some issue
The Build quality is not bad and clearly represents to make it look like the Armour front and back. It not as defined as I would of liked by the shallow plastic build, it's also difficult to actually put on as its comprised of four pieces held by straps, which can get tangled when putting it on. I would of preferred better fastening straps on the sides which are difficult to do up by yourself being held by a loop in the belt rather than clips.
Obviously it was never gonna be completely to detail of the movie prop with the non feature of the side plates of the Armour and the black colour not fitting the traditional charcoal grey look.
The pouches fit fine and overall feels comfortable , though the shoulders looks bit bulky, but that could be due to its long box delivery.
Though i'm not entirely satisfied , I am still happy with this purchase.
