Social Media Says
Is it me, or does SW fashion goes a bit backward...
Old Republic everything is where its at.
Really needed Old Republic factions in the Star Wars Battlefront remakes. The MMO is still popular, so it would have drawn in some of that crowd.
What You Really Think
Dude. Wear it. dress like an old republic trooper, a Jedi, a Witcher, a vampire, a fucking anime character. Just do it. At least add some accessories somewhere you want seen (arms swol as fuck? Wrap them in chains or something.) Or a vest or something.
A culture's teachings, and most importantly, the nature of its people, achieve definition in conflict. They find themselves or find themselves lacking. Too long did the Republic remain unchallenged. It is a stagnant beast that labors for breath and has for centuries. The Jedi Order was the heart that sustained its sicknessnow the Jedi are lost, we shall see how long the Republic can survive.
Same, but its phase 2 from special painting cardboard by using reverse-engineered templates that are meant for foam. That means i can produce them like kaminoans did: 200,00 units ready, with a million more in the way.
A real functional one, that fits perfectly, is bulletproof (yet light and enables good movement), has a built in AR set (and night vision), functional weapons and a filter for toxic gases is going to be expensive and a custom order.
Just a couple silly anecdotes about comfort: My old roomie was a background storm trooper in a Star Wars series once. He said it was exhausting to wear and extremely difficult to sit down. He is not a weak dude. Having worn an armor type costume myself, I can confirm his struggles. You cant do anything. Couldnt even drive with it on, you dont fit in the seat. Fun for conventions, though.
People who say they want this for daily wear have never spent 18 hours wearing a helmet and body armor (even without plates). And given that helmet also covers the face and supposedly seals- they've never spent 30 minutes in a full face protective mask. Let's put it this way- Iraqi soldiers in 2003 were *convinced* that US troops were all wearing air conditioned suits, like NASA has developed. Their evidence- all the white stains around the edges of the vests from the coolant leaking out (which they thought must be a milky liquid of some kind). In fact, the white was from the salt in the soldier's sweat left behind when the liquid water part evaporated.
And while you walking to the grocery store you hear FORRR THE REPUBLIC and Ill come down a hill also in the same armor ive been living in.
And no fashion company is selling the fit in the image to regular people lmao, they just don't understand how fashion shows operate. You aren't gonna put someone on a runway in vans, joggers and a hoodie, you're gonna make some eye-catching, ostentatious look that gets people to pay attention to you even if nobody would ever wear it outside of Christmas photos when they're 5.
Lack of taste. Though I'm not sure I like this armor either. I prefer the clean, minimalist look of ]Phase II clone trooper armor]().
Id pay way too much money for this.
