    First question:

    No, UC does not have the license to make body armour. They will be producing the weapons, and a few shields, etc. but not armour.

    second question:

    user cp ( upper left ) -> edit avatar,

    and for future reference, please post all questions in the questions area ( but do searches to make sure that the question has not already been asked )

    :)

    We're looking into getting some unofficial armor very similar to the elven armor from the movies. It'll be affordable too.

    That be pretty awesome (especially since you said it would be affordabel)....Just out of curiosity will it be more similar to the Noldorian (prologue) armor or the Galadrim (The Two Towers)?

    Yeah, some armor would be nice. I think that making some would be a worthy venture as I'd be glad to donate some of my hard earned cash into some Elven and Gondorian pieces. Is there any other spoilers for us to hear about the armor?

    Chris, when you say affordable, what range are we talking for a full suit? 200-400?

    Any info you can give us on styling and materials? Metal, leather, plastic etc?

    Its a composite material, I think $200-$350 ish for a backplate and chestplate.

    I don't suppose you will be getting any suits of Sauron armor. But I can hope can't I :).

    How 'bout we get the mace released first (wink) then worry about a full suit of sauron armour which would probably be incredibly expensive for the whole suit....

    It would be expensive, but it would be worth every penny.

    Why don't you do one yourself? using fiberglass, vacuu-formed plastic, sheet metal, and a store-bought sauron's helm, it would be long and hard, but rewarding!

    I don't know if they are ever going to finish Sauron's Armor. That page with the helmet sculpted out of clay has remained unchanged since the release of Fellowship of the Ring.
