Weta Workshop will be acting as a local agent for ANOVOS, importing product for Antipodean fans. The initial launch range can be found here, with more products being added between now and the release of The Last Jedi ...

Hopefully this gives kiwis another viable option for sourcing costume replica pieces. :)

Thanks for sharing and apologies for the lack of a heads-up on this, Matt. It is something that has been in the works for a couple of years. I had lost track of where it had gotten to, presuming that it had fallen through the cracks when things went quiet. Suddenly word came in last week that the deal had been quietly progressing in the background, and we were launching on Black Friday! Hopefully it helps make the ANOVOS range more accessible to NZ and Australian fans. :)

The range of items offered will be expanding ahead of TLJ's release and beyond, but if there are specific items you'd like, by all means post suggestions here and I will forward them to my colleagues at Weta who are managing this part of the business. Alternately, you can contact them directly via wholesale@wetanz.co.nz

I have been waiting so long for this to happen, its good that its going ahead, I just hope there aren't the delays with orders like overseas.
I already have TLJ first order helmet being made for me in the UK at the moment.

So I emailed Weta about the kit, and here's their reply:

kit 943.99
usd 265 freight = 387.26 NZD
total before gst tax = 1331.25
total incl gst 1530.94

They don't mention whether you'll get pinged by customs or not - potential risk?

Either way, 1530 is a bit higher than the sub-1000 they advertise it for.
