  1. Here's the new URL: https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_rebels It will show up in the FISD list as soon as the main page sync with the back end. -Eric
  2. Nerds, Toddo and I took a quick look tonight and we think this looks good to go. Because LMOs can't just green light a CRL without changing something, I made two edits. For the neckseal entry it wasn't clear that the balaclava was allowed in lieu of a neckseal. I changed it to: A black balaclava may be worn to conceal the wearer's neck instead of a neackseal. The other thing I did was made the blaster wording consistent with ESB, ANH and ROTJ E-11s. Which says this for L1: Based on a real or replica Sterling sub-machine gun, scratch-built, or a modified commercial toy Stormtrooper blaster. I'll add it to the member database shortly and drop a note to Eric M's GML that he can be approved without delay. Nicely done TKs. -Eric
  3. Hiiiiii! A few questions... comments... etc.. Is is true that all Rebels TK have some sort of grey weathering on them as seen on screen? I'm assuming this is sort of clone-ish dirt you're talking a out? The word "seamless" is confusing on parts that clearly have a seam line. Forearms wording: Armor is seamless with no indication of joining method. I don't know what/where a vertical indent is after looking at the photo: Vertical indent on exterior of bicep is colored gray. When it comes to requiring a very specific number of indents on the shoulder bridges, forearms and belt etc, please bear in mind that someone skinnier or bigger may need to modify the armor to fit them. If you allow an ANH E-11 for ROTJ and ESB, why not for the rebels TK too? Those are my first thoughts. -Eric
  4. No! Now you have to wear both pauldrons at the same time For realz though. As with any CRL change you're grandfathered in. It only effects new approvals. The FX helmet is the same way where if you've had an FX kit since the dawn of the legion you're still welcome to troop with it. Send anyone who says otherwise to me -Eric
  5. Ok. I drafted the email already and I'm happy to send it. -Eric
  6. Hi. If you're ok with it I am happy to send an email to your GML instructing him/her to approve you since your costume was complete after the CRL change. -Eric
  7. Actually... Three pouches total these days -Eric
  8. Have you started your build yet? Or rather did you start it before the CRL change went into effect two days ago? The changes have been made already. Orange only and two hip pouches plus a shoulder pouch as seen in the game -Eric
  9. The bicycle handlebar mount would do it well enough no? -Eric
  10. Did you wipe off all that shmootz TooShort put on yours yet? -Eric
  11. By golly you're right. Right there in front of me in the image I just posted. I'm happy to move this to optional accessories if Paul agrees. -Eric
  12. I'm also leaning toward making the shoulder pouch leather-like without the small pouch. Thoughts? And yo those ab buttons are black. L2? L3? -Eric
  13. Just because you watch porn on your video screen doesn't mean everyone should. I see no drop boxes here: -Eric
  14. Germain: Would you be willing to take a high res non blurry photo of your doll on a non white background? Thanks, -Eric
  15. LMO edits below. I haven't seen a screen shot of a HWT without two pouches on the hip. That wording came right from the sandy CRL. I do think that a canvas shoulder pouch is acceptable but I'm open to making it leather since the shoulder pouch in the game looks like the same as the hip. -Eric EDIT: Daetrin fixed some tiny typos (e.g. plural when it should be singular, etc.)
  16. Dig it: https://www.501st.com/members/search_avail_ids.php I have no idea how often this is updated of if its generated on the fly. But yeah like Mathias said... when you fill out your application you choose 3 (4? 3? I should know this) and you get the first available in order of your preference. -Eric
  17. Fantastic job folks. A pleasure to read. -Eric
  18. You should know by now that I'm pretty much always kidding. -Eric
  19. Randy's often heard saying: This sucks! Let's give it to a biker scout. -Eric
  20. My guess... If the mic is omnidirectional you'll get a ton of feedback. Looks neat though. -Eric
  21. Anything very directional will work. I've used this one and liked it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MS4VKC/ It goes over the head which could be painful over time but there's nothing stopping you from mounting it right in your bucket. -Eric
  22. Is it ok if Randy and I just tell you what to do? That'd be way easier for everyone. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Hi Mark... you keep saying... "they" and "they" as if there is an army of 501st people standing against your ideas. I'm your LMO or the "top brass" (I'm obviously the top something minus the "b") as you call it. No one has said one word about issues with the ROTJ CRL to me this term. Maybe you brought it up to the former LMO last year? Not only has no one presented proof to me I have not heard a single peep about this nor has any of the LMO team. Point blank, if Tim the DL thinks the CRL needs to be changed I'm more than happy to help him update it. At the end of the day its up to him. Rather than railing against the CRL a more productive approach would be to suggest wording changes that you think would improve the CRL. Otherwise you are just pointing out problems and not providing a solution. More below... If I understand correctly the three things you cite are: Shoulder straps cannot be riveted. Missing detonator Holster is required. Overlaps are the wrong direction I'll take these things one by one. Rivets in the Shoulder Straps For basic 501st approval the CRL clearly states that the shoulder straps may be riveted. If someone was denied by their GML, then their GML has not read the CRL. However if the person is applying for Expert Infantry the CRL is wrong but this will not stop someone from getting a costume approved. Missing Detonator The thing that has always bugged me about the ROTJ CRL is that the photo of the det is an ANH/ESB detonator. But yes this is required. If the DL and FISD think this should be optional then it can be changed. Personally I think not having one is a costume error like Mr. No Stripes and all ROTJ TKs should have one to look the same. For approval I think you should have one and if you choose not to wear one, then don't. Again... I leave this up to Tim to make the det optional. Holster Required As you can see in the CRL the holster is optional. If a GML denies someone because of this they're wrong. Overlaps in Wrong Direction There is nothing in the CRL about the direction of overlap. If a GML denied someone for this they were wrong. The CRL does not specify overlap direction. However there is a silly note about the AM shins that should be taken out. A former DL, Tom Gardner, made it his mission for people to assemble AM shins correctly. Most people did not. If Tim's ok with it I'm going to zap that entirely. Your customer is welcome to email me lmo@501st.com if they want to challenge a GML. I'm happy to review the situation and speak to the GML directly. I hope this clears things up. -Eric
  24. I'm your huckleberry. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
