Welcome to our garrison, and to one of Michigan's two seasons. We hope you enjoy our construction season during the three months of the year when it's not cold :)

Re: Question about individual "troops"

For sure! I am already checking into how to be an EC? (event coordinator, is that correct?) for this next year. I know they got a lot of donations, and the bucket was so full about half way through, people had to jam their bills into the bucket... not mine :) I think my armor passed the test well en...

Re: Question about individual "troops"

In case anyone was checking this, I wanted to post that no media was there at the bell ringing I did today. Actually kind of glad, since I was nervous about possibly saying the wrong thing. However, I had an absolute blast at the event! I know it was not an official troop, and to go through the prop...

Re: Question about individual "troops"

Excellent, thanks! Yes, I have been doing my homework (as a teacher, I value this), and if there is any coverage at all, I know to mention that the 501st is separate from Lucasfilm/Disney. I will also be sure to do any interviews with bucket off. Of course, I will await official word. I know my plac...

Question about individual "troops"

I put 'troop' in quotes only because I recently contacted my local Salvation Army to volunteer as a bell ringer in my armor. I sent them a photo of my newly approved TK armor, and they love the idea - so much so, that they asked my permission to speak with their public relations people, and there ma...

Re: Visting DMC Children's Hospital

Funny, I was just going to post a question about how to get involved with this. I was just recently approved as a TK, and one thing I've been looking forward to the most is these types of visits. I am definitely interested if you are in need of a TK Stunt. Let me know - thanks!

It's official - reporting for duty!

Hello, fellow proud soldiers of the Empire.  My name is Ron Zill, and I was just now approved as TK-82611.   It's been an incredibly long journey to make it here, and I now look forward to representing the 501st, and my local Michigan Great Lakes Garrison & Base with pride.  I want to thank ever...

TK Helmet fan system recommendations?

Hey All, I'm still waiting for my official acceptance, but my armor is done. Now I need a helmet fan system, and whenever I ask on white armor, Troopacola chimes in with his system. Does anyone have his system, or ukswrath's system? Hoping to get more people on one side or another to help me with th...

SOLD- ESB TK hand guards and helmet stickers

I originally bought an ESB TK kit from ATA armor works, but I switched to ANH. Never used these hand guards - I began trimming one, but did not touch the hand guard, itself. Both are in excellent condition. $10 each, plus shipping. Buyer pays PayPal G&S fees unless you want F&F. Full disclos...

Re: Newbie

How tall? I have a TK suit for sale - it's completely unused, in fact, untrimmed - the build never even got started. I bought it off a guy who bought it from Anovos. Unless you are like 6'10" or something, it would do fine for you. Get back to me if interested. I have it for sale on here alread...

ISO trade - my black for your brown leather holster straps, ANH TK Stunt

ISO trade - my black for your brown leather holster straps for ANH TK Trooper. I was originally going ESB, but switched to ANH, so I have the black leather holster straps - now I need the brown. Mine have never been used, only collected a little dust - in perfect condition. Hoping to find a local st...
