Detailed replicas of Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ First Order Stormtrooper armour is now on sale, letting fans play out their own pseudo-fascist fantasies while looking both cool and canonically accurate – surely every cosplayer’s dream.

The First Order Stormtrooper armour is being sold by ANOVOS, which is famed for its officially-licenced sci-fi and fantasy movie and TV tie-ins, boasting clothing and props from the likes of Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Ghostbusters.

The armour is available in two options: in kit form, to be constructed at home, for $2,225, or pre-constructed for $6,915.

The Stormtrooper armour, which is based on the original production assets, is described thusly:

  • Costume is designed to fit a person that is between 5 ft. 8 in to 6 ft. (1.7 to 1.8 meters) in height, with a mesomorphic body-type (see chart below).
  • Body armor pieces are made of white ABS plastic.
  • Undersuit is two-piece with mock turtleneck collar and stirrups.
  • The neck seal is made of neoprene and features adjustable hook and loop closure.

  • Joint gaskets are made of flexible latex.
