  1. Agree with xaoslord, now I'll probably have nightmares about this...unfortunately some things you can't un-see. LOL.
  2. Excellent question Jimmy. I'm pretty curious to hear others' thoughts on this myself. I've heard that it doesn't have a real meaning or designation, but could be wrong. For what it's worth, I always thought it would be cool if "TK" stood for Trooper Knight, but that's just a personal wish/preference, no more. Anybody have any historical info about the designation?

  4. Just noticed this post. Alex, big congratulations on earning your EIB!! Look forward to trooping with you again so we can continue to bring order to the state of Georgia, I mean, er, um all sectors of the Galaxy, lol. P.S. - The pic with your dog/"Ewok" is hilarious! Congrats again bro.
  5. is on the forest moon of Endor tracking down a "pitiful little band" of Rebels.

  6. Happy Birthday Brian. Hope it's an excellent one!
  7. Tray - This looks awesome man, and is exactly what I was looking for! Hats off and a big salute to you sir. If you're gonna be at C5 just let me know, as I owe you a cold one. Sincere thanks again!!
  8. Tray - Many thanks man. If you can throw one together it would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Greetings all, I need your help! Now that I've got two costumes (my Vader :vader1: and my TK ), wanted to check and see if anyone knows how to create those super-cool animated signature banners that fade in/out both pictures and text? I'm basically trying to modify (or re-do, if necessary) my existing banner that shows only my Vader (see below) so that it'll fade into the corresponding pictures and info about my TK. Here's the signature banner as it is now: Ideally, I'd like the modify the file (or create a new one, if necessary) so that it'll simultaneously: 1) Fade out from the Vader pic into one of my Stormtrooper (attached below) 2) Fade out from the "SL" designation into a "TK" designation 3) Fade out from the "Darth_Knight1" (my default legion moniker) into the name "Storm_Knight1" (my FISD screen name) 4) Fade out from the round Sith Lord Detachment logo into the FISD detachment logo (also attached below) I'm sure this is probably easy to do for those familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite programs (e.g., Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator), but since I'm pretty Adobe illiterate, figured it'd be best just to ask for some help/guidance from any of the creative folks in the detachment. Open to any and all help, suggestions, etc., and thanks in advance for the assistance! UPDATE: For anyone that would like to throw one together, here are the higher quality versions (e.g., not just thumbnails) of the source pics. Feel free to crop, chop or edit as needed...

  10. Great catch/tip Mark! Well, figured there's no time like the present. Just cut the corners and took an updated pic: UPDATE: My GML just sent me a PM letting me know that he's approving everything on the garrison level today, so with any luck I'll be hunting down rebel scum as an official legion TK very soon!
  11. Most definitely (and C5 too)! Needless to say, it'll be a busy few weeks this way. Funny, almost can't believe that my city has been hosting D*Con for all these years and this'll be my first time going. At any rate, I'm excited.
  12. Greetings FISD! NOTE BEFORE READING: I just submitted pics my TK pics to my local GML for approval (on 7/3/10), so I recognize that this EIB request can't be official until after I'm cleared at the garrison and legion level. Nonetheless, wanted to go ahead and post my EIB pics for preliminary review. Here's the backstory: - Caught the costuming bug last year after my girlfriend and I decided to go to a local costume party as Vader and Padme - Worked for several months on Vader, completed it, then joined the legion in March of this year - Began trooping and started to really admire/appreciate the look of the classic stormtroopers - Heard about FISD, registered and began reading all the great resource info about putting together a quality Stormtrooper - Purchased an AM kit, linked up with some local Garrison members, and after five weeks of late nights (...AND lots of ABS cement, painters tape, snips, clamps, rivets, snaps, velcro ), I think I'm almost ready to call this one done. Here's the rundown of what's included: - Armor: AM - Helmet: AP - Blaster: Modified Hasbro w/ Doopydoos resin kit, additional t-track and D-ring attached - T-track: Smitty - D-ring: Karin/Sonnenschein - Mic Tips: Air-ship Hovi Mix speakers - Neck Seal: TK 409 - Lenses: Green acetate film facing outside, with green welder’s shield from TK-4510 on inside - Gloves: Nomex - Boots: TK Boots - Belt: Rob/TKittel - Holster: Anrev holster, attached to belt with two rivets - Abdomen plate buttons: Testors No. 1772 Model Master (Blue Angel Blue) and Testors No. 1138 (Gray) - 3 rivets on left side of abdomen, 1 snap on right side - 3 rivets left side of kidney - Split between back and butt plates, respectively. - Rivets attaching ammo pack and sniper plate, respectively - Shoulder straps are free floating, with thin white elastic straps holding them down Want to also offer a huge "thank you" to everyone that offered their advice, support and encouragement with this build. Assuming my GML ultimately gives me the thumbs up, here are my submission pics requesting EIB status for soon-to-be TK-9763. Please feel free to offer suggestions and/or recommendations, and I look forward to hopefully joining the EIB ranks soon!
