Alliance armour. Anyone know if it was SST 'A' or 'B'?

Postby Badger » Mon Feb 11, 2013 7:43 pm

Guys,

I'm trying to find out if the Starship Troopers armour used in Firefly was 'A' or 'B' sets.

The A sets had vent holes under the arms cut out, the B sets didn't. The set I used to own was a B.
Anyone spot any A sets in screen caps?

Cheers,

Badger

I've done a lot of looking in the past for my Alliance soldier costume. I've never seen anything but 'B' helmets and 'B' armor on Firefly.

That's what I came up with too. Can't find any A sets in Firefly.

Anyone else seen any A's?

Neg - it was all leftover "B" sets that they rented from the prop-house.

Now that isn't to say that YOU couldn't have an "A" set and paint it up - BUT - seeing as the "A" sets are pretty rare themselves and usually associated with Hero characters from SST......you might have some SST fans coming to "talk" with you for messing up an "A" set.

My thoughts - if you want an A set - get a B set and modify it. Shouldn't be that hard - especially for you Badger :D

Thanks, but it isn't that I need one :)

A friend of mine was offered a screen used 'Firefly' set, and it's an 'A' set. I had my doubts, so I was checking on his behalf.

I have a set of 'A armor' I'm using for one of my my outfits.
It was pretty clearly a set of Bs that someone tore the vents out of so they could sell for a profit. It wasn't done with a lot of finesse either.
If I ever care enough to, I might try refilling the vents or backing them with tape so they look closed up, but it's a detail most would never notice due to placement and whatever.
