... at one time I seriously considered getting a Navy Seal outfit,...
Is a Navy SEAL costume considered legal here? Or it's ok since the entire outfit is considered not 100% local official uniform... According to a local military enthusiast (KB: www.geocities.com/kbmyaf/TDM.htm) eg. US woodland camo BDUs are illegal because it's the official uniform of PASKAL forces here. As for historical(eg.WWII) uniforms I think it's no issue(especially foreign countries)....(unless some of our forces are still officially using parts of WWII uniforms!HAHA)
I've seen some costumers dress up in a pilot's jumpsuit (a member of the Selangor Plastic Modelling Society comes to mind). The SEALS BDU is basically the same olive green jumpsuit. The rest of the equipment (combat vest, harness, pads, Pro-tec helmet and goggles) make it distinguishable as a SEAL's gear. But you have to remember, SEALS don't wear the same BDUs all the time. For covert day missions, its usually the olive green. For night its the black outfits like their SAS counterparts. For desert, its the standards 3 pattern desert camos. So you have plenty of choices to avoid local regulations.

Well, if you bring in anythng mlitary related it can potentially be a problem. My uniform collection saw me going to Kastam (all the way in KLIA somemore) at least 5 times. Usually if they see you're not a samseng or extremist sort, you'll be ok.
BUT body armor, and components of body armor, WILL pose a problem, whether the ceramic plate/kevlar components are removed or not. It all depends if they open your package, so its a crap shoot ler. The best is to hand carry it into the country (try to look innocuous when passing through green lane) as I've done with taxable items (cigs, electronics, etc.). My friend hand carried in 5 laptops and over 200 packs of cigs last time, and he even stopped and greeted the kastam officer!

Pol, you don't need to buy the tactical vests from US. One only needs to go to places like Sg. Wang Plaza and Times Square to find shops selling these same vests (of course without the armor plating). I bought my Delta tactical vests from one of these suppliers, along with all the other components of my Operation Restore Hope Delta operative gear.
JDream, those replica MP5s, are you referring to the ones with the sound and lights? They are not exactly 1:1 scale, slightly smaller than the real thing but look good nonetheless... I have 4 of these... different variants of the ever popular MP5. They still look toyish but if you're good at weathering you can give them a realistic look... not to real, though... you don't want to get stopped by the cops or anything, right?
Found one guy selling all sorts of army stuff. The link above is for the black "turtle" flak jackets (including the front US flag just like Operation Gothic Serpent). Just type in keywords like "Delta", "goggle" or "desert" to get the list of items.
Quote: "JDream, those replica MP5s, are you referring to the ones with the sound and lights?" Yes they are the kiddy toys ones, but w/o lights. They do have the orange tip marker tho, and it's the first time I've ever seen such a near-perfect scale MP5 before
Kalkamel, can you also find those special type of kneepads at the Sg Wang shop? Cos I don't think the normal rollerblade type ones can quite cut it out.
