Also, never trust anyone outside the Legion to tell you what is "501st approvable", "screen accurate" etc. Sometimes they are wrong, sometimes they are flat out lying to you.

Kits from vetted makers recommended by the detachments tend to be easier to get approved than pre-assembled costumes, since you build the kit to fit you. More work, yes, but also more fun :)
Hey, yeah of course!
I only meant that the kit has supposedly been approved on someone - which means there's a good chance that it'll be a good kit. :)

I just received my DT kit from Denis (Armoryshop) this thursday.
And as for now it looks good. THe helmet is a bit small inside, but he is developing a bigger version in 2018.
There aren’t any other sellers in EU that I am aware of at the moment. A few in the US though.
The SpecOps forum is a good resource for info and also there are a few groups on Facebook.
Are you on FB? In that case you can search for Death Troopers (build group).
