If the armor is not approved by 501st standards, the you cannot troop with us at an official event. You have to send in pictures to us with the armor on, then you will get a feedback if it's up to standards

It can be, with modifications, but honestly, it won't look right. What did you pay for it?

From what I can remember the EfX helmet is not 501 approved either.
I don't get this snobbery though, as long as normal people can really tell what does it matter?
It's not like they would go, "oh, look at that stormtropper, his chest plate is a little taller then the guy beside him"
Wile we're at it, are fat people also denied 501 approval? If not the should be, there's no such thing as a fat stormtooper, the only fat "soldier" in star wars a porkins.

Ok.. _Ryth here paid 471 EUR with the helmet included, so that's what's wrong with your armor. Alot of money for something that looks half as good

What's that fully assembled?

Please point out why the armour I bought looks half as good as the 501 approved one.

False.
FX helmet is no longer permitted for new approvals.
Those bigger troopers you refer too that gets approved, buys their armor from a vettet maker, and they do their very best to build it after 501st standards.
