Hello everyone!

I am TK-96000 of the Nordic Garrison (ANH Stunt Stormtrooper).
Other than this approved costume, I am currently working on a Kylo Ren (TFA).
I recently also hatched the idea of getting myself a RG uniform and primarily got hooked by the RotJ-variant.

So, introductions aside, I have a few questions:

1.
I found this set - including all the soft parts - and am considering buying it.
I have bought boots (Kylo) from Imperial Boots before and know they make quality products.
However, I wanted to link the set here, to get some general opinions about it.
I have emailed IB and they say it is fully CRL applicable (their seit is the RotJ-version).
I feel that the price is very much worth it, considering how much is included.
So... In your opinion, should I go for it?
Link to the set below:

2.
The uniform itself aside, I was wondering what resellers or manufacturers of helmets you guys recommend?
Currently, I have my eyes on the ready-to-wear helmet made by FenixProps, since their products were recommended to me by a fellow NG-member (who ironically happens to have a RotJ Royal Guard).
Is FenixProps a good alternative?
Do you guys have some better or more priceworthy recommendations?
I am primarily looking for a finished helmet, one that is painted and ready to wear from the get-go.

3.
Finally, the pike/staff,
What are the usual recommendations for this?
What material is the best, and - going by the fact that I'm not sure I can build one myself - where can I get one?

Right now, the set in question 1 is the priority, since it will only be on sale for a few more days.
The helmet and pike can wait if necessary.

Looking forward to some replies (hopefully soon)! :)

Welcome, as far as the IB robe set you mentioned, the approved members and staff members seem to be on the fence about it, I think they're really waiting for somebody to buy it so they can have a bit more to go off of than online pictures. There are multiple helmet vendors on the forum to have a look at, and for the forcepike, Cabbagefarmer on the forum makes an absolutely amazing one, full metal and will come apart for storage/ transport, good luck!!! :tr:
