  1. Hi Josiah and welcome to the FISD! So yeah RS is one of the best sets of armor you can buy. What you will need to make sure of is that since you are getting it commissioned is that it fits you correctly. The ECG GML is a real stickler (me). Is the undersuit, neck seal and boots included in the kit? If not then you will need to purchase them. I did receive your email I just haven’t had a chance to respond yet. I apologize for that. Also, head over to our ecg forums to introduce yourself as well. www.forum.501ecg.com. Let us know if you have any other questions.
  2. Spoke to his CO directly. Confirmed he is active with a TK costume. Moved him to detachment member.
  3. Hi Sean and welcome to the FISD! So you can’t go wrong with a RS suit. It is certainly top notch. You have done a nice job with your armor. There is one thing that is standing out to me that could be an issue for approval. That is the two rivets/screws at the top of your ab plate. Generally those should be added on to the return edge of the armor so they are not as visible. I’m not sure how your GML will view it but if I was reviewing your app for my garrison I would unfortunately not pass it. If your GML doesn’t then you will need to remove those and fill the holes in with ABS paste and then sand it smooth. There are a couple of tutorials here on the forum on how to do it. I would also recommend that you add a couple more pieces of elastic connecting your chest plate and ab plate. That will help with the gap you are getting there and keep it closed better. Otherwise I think everything else would be fine for basic approval
  4. Hi Bart and welcome to the FISD! I am so deeply sorry to hear about your wife. I couldn't imagine how hard this was for you over the years. But thank you for joining up here and for your interest in the FISD and the 501st legion. Please take a look around the getting started threads. There is a ton of information to get you off the ground running. Essentially the first thing you need to do is figure out what set of armor you are interested in. Original Trilogy stormtrooper (OTTK)? A First Order stormtrooper (FOTK)? Then any of the offshoots like an Incinerator trooper, heavy weapons trooper, etc. If you have any questions then don't hesitate to ask here on the forums. There are a ton of knowledgeable troopers here.
  5. Hey Cory. So it sucks that happened with your colors. Unfortunately putting on my ECG GML hat here I would have to say I would not approve that much of a color difference. I have never heard of the tea trick. Give it a shot. What’s the worse that can happen? Other try another vendor like MTK or AP? I used To have a MTK kit and I had a troopermaster helmet. The colors were very similar. You could always try TM too. Ask who has more of a cream white color as opposed to bright white.
  6. The 501st Nomination period has ended. Please join me in congratulating Andrew Franke @Sly11 as the FISDs Detachment Leader for another term! Congrats Andrew!!
  7. Dave is a great guy with great service. He offers AM kits which are generally geared toward the trooper with more girth. However it can be sized down to a more slender trooper. You can’t go wrong if this is what your looking for.
  8. Damn. Just how sad. Terrible terrible news.
  9. This is an extremely sad time for the FISD family. My thoughts and prayers to those of you who Terrell had an amazing impact on in your lives. His contribution to this hobby and the legion will go down in history. He was way too young. Buckets off to his family during this difficult time.
  10. Hello there Nicolas. So you are saying that you have been approved with armor from Jedi Robe with only those two modifications?
  11. Hi Mike and welcome to the FISD! I was just visiting Bar Harbor and Ogunquit this past week. Beautiful up there along the coast. There are many helpful members around here with a bunch of knowledge on Phasma. Enjoy the build!
  12. JR's post is perfect. It hits the nail on the head. The only thing I may add is that this bit of information has been lost as the last 5 years or so have gone on. People don't think about it. I don't know why. We don't want to put too much info out there about armor because we do have to keep in mind that copyright infringement still does exist. Again, it seems like that more people worried about that 5 or so years ago then currently. But our armor makers do put their neck out there because they could potentially feel the wrath of the mouse if they ever really wanted to. Research is key.
  13. Hi Rose and welcome to the FISD! Glen has given you most of the information you need. Take some time to research those build threads and then make sure you check out the getting started sections.
  14. Well thanks for making this a lot easier on me!
  15. Hi Matt and welcome to the FISD! Congratulations on your purchase! This is going to be an amazing time ahead of you. There is nothing like building a set of armor. Just take it slow and measure twice cut once. Have fun!
  16. Hi Alexander and welcome to the FISD! Congratulations on your approval and welcome to the 501st legion! Enjoy your time.
  17. Congratulations Natalie! Welcome to the 501st Legion and the FISD! Check out this thread and post your details so you can become an complete FISD member: Have fun trooping!
  18. Hello and welcome to the FISD! This will be an exciting time for you. Building a set of armor is an amazing time. Like Dan said you should reach out to the Japanese Garrison. Someone there may also be able to give you some hands on assistance. Also, please check out our Getting Started threads. Have fun!
  19. Well if you were given a new set of MTK armor then the armor itself is just fine. Now it will come down to how you build it and how the final product looks. The best thing I can tell you is to look through some of the build threads. Study some of them. Then you should start your own. Also, there are some build Videos on trooperbay.com you can look at. Also some videos on YouTube with our friend CableGuy.
  20. Hi Chris and welcome to the FISD! I will tell you that research is key here. The more you read then the more you learn. I will tell you with your measurements you should be looking hard at AM armor. You can contact Dave's Darkside Depot on facebook. If you don't have facebook then you can PM Dave here on the forums under the name Triple D. He is an awesome guy. AM Armor is geared more towards the heavier trooper. The set of armor gives you plenty of extra added plastic in the areas that you may need most. Most sets of armor will fit anywhere between 34-36 inch waist but AM fits a much larger waist size. If you have any other questions then don't be afraid to ask.
  21. Hi Robin and welcome to the FISD! Check out the getting started section. There you will find all of the information you need to begin your journey.
  22. I agree with Paul. I don’t see any reason why someone who is not an approved member couldn’t submit a design for the context. The only thing that would be a bummer if that person did win would be that they couldn’t purchase their coin. However, there would be no reason why that person couldn’t be gifted one for their efforts.
  23. Eric - Does your cutout design feature what I guess you could call a monetary edge like the first design? Or is it a solid edge?
