Re: Shiny and new

There are a number of troopers in the GR area but C19 probably has slowed down planned activities

Re: New Shiny

ANH Stormtrooper here.

For gloves I use some from Home Depot. They have some sort of white printing on the back side but it's not issue as it's covered up by the hand plate. If it really bothers you, use a Sharpie to black it out.

Re: Cases for Armor transport/storage

The limiting factor is your vehicle. I have heard many stories of people who cannot fit their large totes into the backseat or trunk of a passenger car. I have no problem storing a Stormtrooper with helmet and a bunch of accessories inside the 50g Husky. You will learn how to pack your stuff pretty ...

Re: Need TK build advice

I can help with some general stuff. Never worked or seen an FX kit but I'm sure we can figure out the final look

Re: Need TK build advice

You mentioned Clawson in the whitearmor post. Are you in that areas? There are a crouple TK troopers in that area.

I have some pictures but cannot post them here since the photo bucket fiasco. Contact me on Facebook Al Tong

Re: Iron Man/Spider Man Needed

I don't have Spiderman or Iron man but if they are willing to take a TK I can probably do it depending on the date and time. Also keep in mind one cannot drive in a TK so a changing place (even a small one) is needed. I am close enough to Warren and it turns out through business and personal family ...

Re: TK Helmet fan system recommendations?

I have Troopacoola fans. The Troopacoola fan installation is actually a great setup because the switch is where you can reach it easily with bucket on. Switch is mounted solid. To be honest I don't use the fans at all and leave the battery out 99% of the time. If I do I switch them on for 30 seconds...

5'9" isn't going to work. The pant legs would cover your feet like a onesie and the crotch will be halfway to your knees

Re: Tie Pilot Seeking feedback

The collar picture of the flightsuit says XL on the hanger. Not sure if the flightsuit is also XL. If you are interested I have an XL brand new except for a test fit from Cosplay Sky. It is too large for me at 5’8” 185lbs. I’m guessing you need to be over 6ft for a good fit. Cosplay Sky is one of th...

Your DT at MCCC was cool. You were with your brother controlling the voices, right? We will have to get you weaponized!

Since joining the 501st

I just wanted to say I’m having so much fun. I’ve only been a member since May 2017 but I’ve done approximately 10 events of various sizes and venues. I also have the honor of meeting dozens of new people from many walks of life, all having fun. Some I have only communicated on Facebook and haven’t ...

Last pieces of my Stormtrooper

Last night I tested the velcro strips on the back of my shins. Without full troop hiking they appear to hold. I also cut and painted the buttons on my button plate. Today I glued them to the ab plate with E6000. I have a shoulder bell repair and double check the rivets on my holster and I'm ready to...
