Hello Troopers

Postby Rookie501 » Wed Jul 11, 2018 2:58 pm

Hello, my name is Emmanuel I am 17 and hopefully, I will join the 501st sometime. I was just wondering if anyone could provide some sources to clone trooper armor. I would also like to know where you guys are based at and see if I could visit and talk about costuming. I have some knowledge that there are fees for membership and I would like to know what they are. Thank you. :D

We are spread out all over the place. There is no one place we are based in Michigan. There is no club house or anything, if tht's what you were thinking. All stuff for the club is discussed on these forums.

As said earlier, register for the forums at 501stclonetroopers.com and do a crap-ton of reading research. Anything you need to buy can be found in the sales section of the forum there. Stay far away from ebay, amazon and etsy.

OHH okay. I tried to register but it's not working at all. Why not eBay?

1- Once you register, an admin has to approve you first before you can log on.

2-As for ebay, amazon and etsy: too many scammers and people selling complete garbage. Plus there is a wanted fugitive who sells under close to 10 different names to try and fool people. Lots of people will tell you their stuff is 501st approvable in order to steal your money.

Also, what area are you from? Might be somebody close to you that may be able to give you a hand if you get stuck on something.

I'm in the lower St. Clair County area (Marine City/Algonac)
Imperial Surplus, a.k.a. KW Designs, is awesome! I have his realistic kit, along with an EVO3 helmet. You can find both of their sales threads in the continuous sales section of the clone forums.
