Yes, I remember we had that topic before.

Would you mind taking a few shots of that section from your original?

But I can't see any velcro on the chestplate at all (at least from the front).

So it has to be attached on the backside where you can't see it, I guess.

Any deeper insight / photos would be great.

I went back doing some research on that and had to stop at the gallery on a photo which shows the part breakdown of the Command Centurion.

While looking closer at the chestplate, it looks like there was an additional strap of velcro which goes up to the square behind the cap on the backpack.

Problem solved?

I will definitely use some velcro.
Otherwise my backpack will move to much from one to the other side.
That look

Sounds like the taxes would be much less if the buyer is in the States.
-"Helper buyer" gets it in the states (much lower taxes)
-Helper ships the voice changer over to Jenne who PayPals the helper.
So overall - the purchase is cheaper than the out-of-country taxes + shipping.

Is that correct, Jenne? Did I understand it right?

For the boots
@ Cylon-Knight
i see one of your boot pics (the blue line)
Image
and the gallery pic (red line)

have you choose the blue line,
because your boots are not 100% the same like the orginal boots ?

Jenne - I have original boots.
Pics of mine are on these two pages:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=531&start=60
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=531&start=240
I've not painted them yet. I'm going to try silver vinyl stickers first! :sunglasses:

For your boots, I vote the blue line.

Yeah, good luck with the boots, mate! :salute:

There are some nice detailed pics of Vulpa's boots in the gallery, if that would be of any additional help to you:
