  1. Well I'm not gunna argue with mark Can you snap a photo of the u shape when you get a moment? A photo of the end of the trim would be great if possible. Thanks dinglehumper, -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Dimensions would help too if someone can measure or take a photo of their ROTJ style u-trim? Ye olde Great Lakes skipper bayliner u-trim is no longer available. This stuff looks too small. No? http://greatlakesskipper.com/product/5_320_806-boat-deck-and-docking-misc-molding/11770--bayliner-1733532-white-316-inch-boat-u-molding-ft.html Thanks nerds, -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi! There has been a fair bit of impatience about this CRL floating about. None if it directed at me sadly, but I do welcome direct feedback anytime. If you feel impatient or upset or want to know what is going on... I can be reached via email, PM and Facebook chat if you insist. Many folks have my phone number that I will happily give out to call or text anytime. I get a ton of messages from all sources every day and I try to respond to each and every one of them. My inbox door is always open. So is Tim's. I apologize for not posting an update on where we are with this CRL. Not only is my legion life full but my actual life is madness. It's all poor excuses but it is what it is. Oscar Mike Foxtrot Golf! Why isn't this CRL done?!?!?!? Thank you for asking! I cobbled together a CRL. It used photos from a few different sources. I then sent it out for review to all the LMOs, FISD's Detachment Leader, and a couple phasma experts. I received great feedback on the words from all parties. With one more major edit those will good to go. The majority of them rejected most of the photos outright. If both my LMO team say NFW as well as the Detachment Leader I don't have a choice but to go back to the drawing board for this very important and popular CRL. They are not wrong in their assessment, but I was wrong got try and rush a half assed CRL. The photos we've received for this CRL have either been low resolution and/or the parts aren't shiny at all, or they are poor quality photos of good parts. I requested a professional photographer redo one of our costumer's photos of parts. In the mean time if you have a shiny and accurate Phasma and access to a good camera under well lit conditions I invite you to take photos of all of your parts. Feel free to reach out to me directly and I will tell you which photos we need. Thank you for continued patience with this very very important CRL. -Eric
  4. My hope is to get a separate reference page of photos of people's capes together to tell the full story. I'm putting Ingrid in charge of it but she doesn't know it yet. Also here is a close up of that photo:
  5. This is the photo I'm thinking of using for the cape entry in the CRL: Questions: Is it accurate? Does it provide enough detail? Thanks -Eric
  6. Ok folks... If you read a page or so back this contest has been long over. Obviously no one knew Wyatt and I were joking. I'm locking the thread. -Eric
  7. I don't know why you would carpet a cantina floor in mos eisley. It'd be like carpeting a McDonald's kitchen.
  8. Actually the C seems to have two scopes but this one on the floor of the cantina does not. -Eric
  9. Maybe I'm a crappy Star Wars fan but here is something I've never noticed. Ponda Baba's dead arm carried the promo trooper's SE-14 with random wires and minus the scope. How cool is that? Feel free to pile the "yeah yeah we know"'s on me. -Eric
  10. Only a few more years to go old man. Happy B-day dude. -Eric
  11. It's funny. People keep ascribing all sorts of logic as to why a costume goes to a particular det. Little of it makes much sense across all 15 detachments. A lot of it was dictated by an LMO and some of it happened organically without reason. But as the 501st grows, and detachment leadership changes, many of the dets begin to navel gaze about their own existence. One of many examples is that SLD and TFE rethinking what types of costumes they support. Members can read my rant about this here. I know that SpecOps wants Phasma for sure. I personally think the support for building the costume is best served from the FISD forums. While the LMO has the power to dictate where a costume goes, he shouldn't. This is between the two DLs with my support behind FISD. -Eric
  12. I would need to see it to say. My instinct is that many of the parts would be too complex and intricate to make it look right. The ab section and thermal detonator specifically. -Eric
  13. Hi all! This list is not accurate. If you want basic approval for basic 501st membership here is the definitive list: Split kidney and butt plate into two pieces Replace plastic belt with a canvas one Rivet holster onto left side of canvas belt (cannot be looped for ANH Stunt) Replace helmet (WTF makes a really nice one that will match the FX color) Replace black ab buttons (I have a set if you want) with the blue and grey ones Ensure forearms, biceps, and thighs are closed Install elastic on the shoulder bell that goes around the bicep Make sure all the parts fit you and don't overlap too too much. This thread is a good place to start even if you're not going EIB: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/12478-howto-easily-make-your-fx-armor-eib-acceptable/ Post your progress here and we'll help you get it fit and your costume approved. Good luck! -Eric
  14. Good luck brotherman. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome to the 501st TK-10415. Please report to the death star hanger for standing around and looking shiny duty -Eric
  16. Garrett: Do you have the shoulder bell elastic that goes around the bicep? I can't see it in the photos and it is a basic requirement Your belt is fine enough where it is though. See images below. Good luck trooper! -Eric Look where the belt comes to on the bottom ab button: Trooper's belt on the right:
  17. We are just waiting for photos to complete the CRL (and a DL review.) Ingrid may not be available to take photos of her costume, which saddens me. Does someone out there have a really nice phasma build that is also pretty darn shiny? If so please PM me. -Eric
  18. Here ya go: http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:Legacy_Trooper_Female Hee hee! -Eric
