Hey folks.

I'm nearing the end of my Stormtrooper build, and I'm looking for some white Velcro to close the shins, the industrial strength stuff.

Any ideas on where I can get some?
Thanks :)

Hey Armante - I built my suit circa 2013 and couldn't find any industrial strength velcro locally. I ended up having to source some via Amazon. Hopefully someone else might be able to point you towards a more convenient source, though.

Cheers Archon - I managed to find exactly what I needed at Mitre 10! Go figure, I guess things changed since 2013 ;)
So yeah, a box of actual Velcro Industrial Strength in white, at the right size. very happy with it, holds the calves closed very well
