I'm sure he would do right for all of us. After all he was a big help in getting the site off the ground in the first place.
Licensed Proton Pack replicas are obviously something the community has been wanting for a very long time, but at this stage the Uniforms are really the best thing about this.
Anovos's costumes are the next best thing to screen used, they'll most likely be the first truly accurate uniforms we've seen. I haven't had a full GB costume since I was a teenager, but I'll be buying this.
(1) High-end PKE Meter
(2) Accurate ripstop/herringbone uniforms

That being said, if a person purchases a full Star Wars costume from them, it pretty much guarantees approval from the 501st and Rebel Legion.
I still believe this community will have more accurate packs then any mass produced company
if you look on therpf it also takes anovos a very long time to deliver...
Lando's not a system. He's THE MAN.

Although, I think I still prefer a self-made pack, just because of the effort and individualism of each build. Like people above I'm interested to see what they make of the smaller props, like the PKE, Giga Meter and trap. Again I kinda prefer homemade trap builds, but if they make a replica that doesn't look like a plasticy toy then I'd probably be interested.
Hopefully something like QMX's 'Artisan' props, just not as expensive...

However, my worry is that if they do do uniforms, they will only sell them as complete uniforms rather than flightsuits....this means belts, elbow pads, and all the things that go on the belts....if they only sell them as complete uniforms I dread to think what the price will be.
My uniform is pretty basic....proton pack, desert tan flight suit dyed gray, web belt with key fobs, leg hose, elbow pads, etc. What I did not have is the trap, PKE meter, belt gizmo, and goggles. I was talking to him about the lack of these items, and that is when he told me to check the website on Oct 31st, which leads me to believe they will be producing some/all of these props.
I'm sure they will do proton packs, but I am also sure they will do props to accompany the uniform. I guess I am optimistically cautious. After all the time, resources and swear words I invested in making my own pack, the reward was seeing what I had accomplished at the end of the build. As mentioned in other threads, the build...mistakes and all...are mine. Commercially produced items just don't seem to compare.
Having said that, I am hoping they have a fantastic PKE meter and set of goggles.

Anovos has a very high standard for screen accuracy with the Star Wars stuff, but the manufacturing process of say a 100% screen accurate storm trooper costume is relatively simple compared to that a proton pack. The stormtrooper stuff and Star Wars helmets is all vaccuformed pieces or injection molded plastic basically.
I'm just very curious to see how they will pull off making pack replicas while upholding their high standards of accuracy as a company, I mean they are going to have to get surplus of parts.... make legris elbow replicas... fiberglass shells, ect.. we all know how much is involved in making a pack.
I can't really see Anovos doing what Matty did with the thrower and make a dumbed down simplified replica.
We shall see!
On another note.... With some of the Star Wars items, they were able handle and 3D Scan some of the original props... So who knows maybe with the official License they have had access to the Hero Packs?
