  1. Anyone working on an aluminum version of the aerator socket? Seems like a small, but worthwhile upgrade...
  2. Metal > plastic. I could see some accidental cracking just from holding it wrong.
  3. "Prototype depicted. Subject to change"... When you're picky about how your kit looks, especially with the many variations on a TK helmet, it makes you a bit leary. But a $350 kit and quickly be put together and sold off if it wasn't what you were hoping for. x3 construction markup for installing snaps/rivets/who knows what is kind of amazing too.
  4. I've seen the tutorial to make them. It'd cost me a lot less to buy a couple.
  5. Good call on the belt trim and the mic tips. I'll take all the help I can get.
  6. Still needed- mounting the blaster holster to the belt, cutting the butt plate, and shimming the side gaps.
  7. Got a good deal I couldn't pass up on an old FX TK, and thanks to this very helpful FX conversion thread: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/12478-howto-easily-make-your-fx-armor-eib-acceptable/ , I've been able to put in a few dollars and a few minutes here and there to make this a decent looking TK. Here's the suit before- And the story so far... First things first, out with that atrocious bobble head bucket! Went for Elumusic's newly created BX helmets (his work found here- http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/28271-bx-built-stormtrooper-helmets-finished-and-kits/ ) Swapping out the big black ab buttons for a set of VaderDave's Plastic -> Canvas belt *pop* *pop* That was easy... I also brought up the gap of the drop boxes to nearly nothing (with correct white elastic strapping), installed metal clips for the thermal detonator, and am working on installing an old fan/mic kit I've had for a while...
  8. Mine is still up for grabs, and not as scary/animated looking... (Predator not included)
  9. Alabama is a fun group of folks (this is the second Garrison I've been with), and you're in prime territory up there in B-ham! +1 for someday being a real bike riding scout
  10. Same guy... I've got a potential buyer in Denmark at the moment... Wish I could tell you about it's origins, but it's pretty unmarked, and was a Christmas gift several years ago.
  11. Not only approvable, but up to EIB! http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/index.php?/topic/12478-HOWTO:-Easily-make-your-FX-Armor-EIB-acceptable
  12. As it is in the description, just figured I'd keep it generic. Does the addition of a few more buttons merit the premium price? Maybe it's the goggles?
  13. I dunno if an AT-ST lid is $750 good... http://www.ebay.com/itm/201160545356
