  4. Yes as long as you meet the CRL requirements for both costumes, you can also do this with ESB by swapping a helmet and a few other pieces. A grappling hook and droid caller are not required but are an option for Hero TK. Differences between the versions can be found here https://drive.google.com/file/d/10tEVteIreh6AHMogW010cuH_Bf8TBfU6/view

  6. Congratulations Ray and welcome to both Expert Infantry and EI Honor Gallery
  7. Now checking in on the left ear. I think I have a good fit, but when I compare it to the right ear, it's quite a bit thicker at the bottom. I know that the ears aren't meant to be symmetric, but is this too much of a difference? Left ear: Right ear: My armorer left out a pair of the ear screws, so I don't have the left ear screwed down. Still waiting for that to come in the mail, but does anyone know what size they are so I can get them on Amazon or something? In imperial units, it seems like it's a bit smaller than #4. Who knows what it could be in rebel units ?
  8. I didn't want to open up a fundamental discussion about whether it's right or wrong. There is certainly a difference between showing up at an official event and being a member of the 501 or even aspiring to be one. For a quick and more convenient solution, I personally think this option is better. But you are right: the discussion was obviously discussed extensively. Maybe someone has a tip on how to temporarily connect the parts on the shoulder. That should be allowed. Thanks!
  9. Despite the obvious limitations of our reproduction materials and the fact that Disney clearly does not mind a seam, it has been discussed at length and current leadership is not open to moving this requirement from Basic to L2 EIB. Therefore this style cannot be replicated and you must fill your side and shoulder seams if you wish to have your kit approved. More discussion here:
  10. Hello from Germany! I have a question about the First Order Stormtrooper armor from Disney's Galaxy's Edge. I noticed that the armor differs from the normal construction in two main parts. The chest plate is firmly glued and the back part has a separating seam, which obviously allows for better donning than the over-the-head method. I am aware that the Screen Accurate version has no seam and is filled. However, this method repeatedly led to breaks due to tension. Now to my question: Does anyone have any idea what this attachment might look like? Do you think it's held together with Velcro? I would find this perfect for putting on and taking off, especially for fast troops.
  11. I understand that there are differences between both costumes and a new submission pics for approval would be needed.
  12. Hi Just inquiring before starting a hero build. I already have an approved ANH TK stunt. If I wanted to do a dual TK stunt and hero, is that a possibility.? Using armor I already have (stunt)adding/ changing a new bucket (hero) and additional item's: grappling hook and or droid call caller. So, one troop be a TK stunt and at a different troop be a TK hero. Or is a new set of armor needed. Thanks
  13. I'm not planning to do that at this time. Looking for basic approval so I can finally get out trooping...it's been a long build!

  15. Awesome Brian! Thank you for your continued service to the Empire!
  16. You're a busy man, Sir! Congratulations on your 205th troop in white armour and I know for certain there will be many more...
  17. Troop 59 London, Ontario July 21, 2024 London Pride Parade This was my first Pride Parade troop and it was absolutely amazing despite the plus 30 degrees Celsius temperature. We kitted up in a nearby parking lot and made our way to the staging area where we found some shade while we waited for an hour or so for the parade to start. Then it was time for action. As soon as we put on our helmets, we were mobbed for photos from the other parade goers in the staging area. Even the local chief of police asked for a photo with us. Then it was on to the parade. It was about a 45 minute march which was hot but not unbearable. The white TK armour really reflects the heat well. So many cheers and hugs along the way. We were so well received. 2 of our members had strategically parked vehicles near the end of the parade route to drive us back to where we parked or cars. This was a life saver and a chance to try sitting in a vehicle in costume (I must admit, I took off my thighs and shins to get in).
  18. Hi Ray, and thank you for your EIB application! CRL and EIB Application Requirements: All required photos have been submitted, and on behalf of the entire D.O. staff we are pleased to welcome you to the rank of Expert Infantry. Congratulations! Other-Armor Fit/Assembly; In this area we review observations made by your fellow troopers and the DO team. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor, and please keep in mind that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions. 1. Your helmet is sitting a little bit high on your head. This can easily be fixed by removing some of the padding on the top of the helmet. This will also likely improve your visibility some. References 2. Although not required, some black mesh placed inside of the helmet behind the frown will help to hide your face from people looking through the gaps. 3. It appears that your rank bars on the right ear are painted in the grooves and not on the top of the raised areas. Although this is not mentioned in the CRL, it would make the overall look more screen accurate. References 4. Your belt has some fraying along the top and bottom edges. Your costume will look alot cleaner if these are trimmed off. References *************************************************** Centurion Requirements: In this section we prepare you for our highest tier of approval. Because Centurion photos must show more detail than EIB, items pertaining to Level 3 might be seen there and not here and additional photos may be required. We try to point out all that we can from what we are able to clearly see, but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper. 1. A very simple adjustment should be made to your shoulder strap elastics by pulling them back just a touch to put them more to the back of the shoulder strap rather than in the middle area. CRL L3: The plastic shoulder straps need to be held down in the back via a white elastic band to the white fabric that connects/bridges the chest and back piece. References 2. The gap between your shoulder bell and shoulder strap on the left is a bit wider than the one on the right. Ideally, the left shoulder strap should be brought in slightly to make them even. I suspect this is more of a dressing issue with the shoulder bell being pulled out a bit. If it is not, it will require a simple adjustment to the strap length. CRL L3: There should be a minimal gap between the shoulder armor and the chest/back plates. References 3. Your Abdominal and Kidney plates are not lining up properly. The abdominal plate needs to come up and forward some to align better with the kidney plate. This may be achieved by adding some padding to the inside abdominal or kidney plates to reduce the overlap and bringing the abdominal plate up by adjusting while dressing or possibly modifying the strapping slightly between the abdomen and kidney plates to form a more secure seam to align the top edges. CRL L3: Ideally there no gap between the abdomen and kidney armor. Abdominal and Kidney Plate align horizontally at top. A single visible seam line is present. References 4. Your rivets on the left side of your kidney plate are a bit too far back. Your abdominal ones look correct however. We will need you to move the 3 rivets on the kidney plate forward slightly. This will take a bit of ABS paste work to patch the holes but will give a more screen accurate look in the end. CRL L3: Three rivets, approximately 5/16"(8mm) diameter, are present on the left side of the kidney plate. Note: The original rivets used for the TK armor were bifurcated rivets or split rivets. Rivets are equally spaced along the depth of the armor and about 10mm from the edge. The heads are rounded or domed. Note: Paperclip brads are not considered to have a domed head. Rivets are painted white. References 5. Your Belt needs to come up a bit so that the top of it is in line with the bottom button of the abdominal button panel. This can be achieved with a bit of velcro between the belt and abdominal armour. CRL L3: The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels. References 6. A bit of filler in the gaps on the bottom of the thigh joint in the back will need to be applied. This can be done with ABS paste or Sugru. CRL L3: Lower thigh ridge joins (front and rear) shall butt-up flush against each other. Any gaps must be backed with ABS or filled as not to be noticeable. References 7. Your sniper knee plate is sitting just off of the proper angle with respect to the ridges of the shin. You likely will need to remove it and adjust it so it is sitting in the proper position. This can be tricky to achieve at times but there are lots of references and people here to assist you if you have any questions. CRL L2: Sniper knee plate must be aligned with the ridges on the shin.
