  1. Stromtooper Commander approved! Link to full album: https://picasaweb.google.com/101841473479732427661/TKCPictures?authuser=0&feat=directlink Now to get it fixed up for EIB!
  2. Hey guys, I'm trying to get some participation on this. The other day on Halloween I was hugged while in my Stormtrooper Commander. This little boy is the son of a friend and has never shown any interest in other people really. But yesterday he hugged me. The mom was surprised. He had never seen an actual Stormtrooper before. He has only seen pictures. She told me that he always liked stormtroopers. But was blown away that he hugged me and didn't think too much of his prior interest. I am asking for a favor. Could you guys send this little guy some trading cards and or pictures? Thanks. Address is in the Detachment only area. http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/33770-autistic-boy-loves-stormtroopers/ **If this isn't the right place for this, I apologize.**
  3. I'm looking around for an undersuit for my 4 year old. I found a shirt but nothing that would work for the bottoms. Shoes I'm not to worried about I'll just buy him a pair white tennis shoes. But does anyone have any ideas for the undersuit or know where I can get one?
  4. Revisiting the paint job! A friend is helping me out by doing the weathering. Since I don't have the artistic skills and don't feel like ruining $1000. lol Here is the helmet pic he sent me: https://picasaweb.google.com/m/zoom?uname=101841473479732427661&aid=5886544970936398577&id=6057477445933199314&viewportWidth=320&viewportHeight=416
  5. $45 at a antique store. Should I get it? lol
  6. I prefer the one piece. I'm just trying to find out if anyone has this particular suit and get their opinion.
  7. http://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Racing-Unisex-Stormtrooper-Black/dp/B00C0WBH30/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2PERI2FINVLBQ I'm looking at a large. I am 5'11" 190 lbs / 1.8 m 86 kg How does it fit and ride? How does it feel? Hot weather? Cold Weather? Good stretch? Stitching? Any other info about it I should know?
  8. Well the build is complete (thanks to craygee for helping big time!). It just has to get painted and I picked up the paints for that: And of course in the process of taking it off, I had my fuse seam snap right off. Yay me.
  9. ITT: Nerd Rage. Come on guys, really? This is going to keep the TK alive. Clone Wars troopers looked different than the movie Clones. Each original film had a different stormtrooper look. But we have accepted all of them. What if someone does an animated TK mold? Are we going to whine about that? RMQ armor isn't even canon but we allow that. It does look cool in it's own way. But it is not a stormtrooper from the movie. No one is messing up the TKs from the movies so why get all bent about it? These TKs are just another chapter in the universe. All these "just lost a long time clone wars fan. (No they didn't and I am sure they care very deeply)" stuff and boo hoo the stortrooper doesn't look right crap is just that. Crap. All that is why Lucas said he would never make another movie. He just turned over creative control over to Disney. And people are gonna whine about that. As I said in a different post, this TK will carry on the spirit of the TK and let us be more known for what we are, Stormtroopers.
  10. Hmm. A cartoon that is not life like looking different from live action movie stormtroopers. And some of you are whining about it? All the movies are different too. The thing is gentlemen, keeping the spirit of the TK alive is more important. They look like stormies to me. And these TKs will introduce them to a whole new generation. Fans of all ages will now know what we are. Instead of just being robots or ninjas or something else entirely. No one but us can see the SUBTLE differences. Maybe someone will do an animated TK. Just like the animated clones. My point is, don't get your under armor in a bunch. Every movie was different. Each movie had a difference in the TK. Why get upset about a cartoon? Stop nerd raging and let's be happy the legacy of the TK will continue on.
  11. I know, I know. We have hundreds (if not thousands) of threads on helmet mic set ups and what not. But I am asking for an opinion on one more. So here it is: http://www.amazon.com/Motorcycle--Helmet-Headset-Microphone-Skiing/dp/B007MO6EAM/ref=sr_1_24?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1372597761&sr=1-24&keywords=microphone+headset+with+PTT What do you think of a set up like this?
  12. As easy as any other ABS kit really. But I caught mine from the Imperial Commissary. Keep an eye out there you will see different types of kits go on sale there all the time.
  13. Got the boat trim all glued on. All that time with it taped helped keep it together. I used plastic weld and only did it on the inside to avoid any technical difficulties.
