  1. Just looked it up, my first Centurion build was #52 in 2012 and now my second is #268. It's crazy that we've added added 216 Centurions in the last 4 years! Keep up the good work friends! Just as an aside, my first EIB in 2012 was #247 and my 2016 EIB is #625. 378 new EIB's in 4 years. Just so awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Just some really tight, fresh heavy duty elastic. It might separate a little if I twist or reach across but it sits nice now when in a relaxed pose.[emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. That's awesome! Thanks a lot Sly! That really makes my night! I'm so very proud to be a member of this detachment! Thanks again![emoji106][emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It's been almost a month. Any idea how much longer it'll take to review my submission? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Took some new pics, they're as close as I can get em. Considering it's not a requirement, how much longer do you think it'll take to get reviewed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just read your comment Sly about reversing the white nylon straps! I bet if I do that and lose the return edge it might just do the trick! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Also I had some issues posting from my phone which resulted in multiple posts, how do we delete those?
  8. Got it! Like I said, it bugs me too, I've always taken an enormous amount of pride in my builds and values of the Centurion status (otherwise I wouldn't have submitted again with my new armor). It was an issue I couldn't resolve and since it's not technically a requirement I just thought I'd submit when I felt the needed details were in order. Not trying to skimp or cheat at all on details. I want it perfect too! I'll get on it asap and resubmit! Thanks again for the help my brother!
  9. The elastic from the shoulder bridge snap to the top of the bell. I don't have my armor with me here so I need to get it to take some shots. Its so tight that any tighter will begin to pull the bridge nylon strap outward. I never thought of reducing the bell bottom return edge, but i trimmed nearly every return edge to around 7mm so I didn't think it would be a bit deal. My ATA never had this issue and the bells are smaller on that kit! Let me see what I can do, if its a deal breaker I'll have to resubmit pics later. Thanks again! Fingers crossed I can get it to meet!
  10. Hey Sly! Thanks for reviewing me! I totally understand what you're going for and believe me, there probably no one who it bugs more than me! I've had this convo a couple times with Gaz about it and I literally have the elastic so tight that it's difficult to snap it while suiting up. I think the bottom line really is that my stupid shoulders are too broad and it just pulls it outward. If I raise my arms a little it meets perfectly but if I relax they separate. The only solution I can think of at this point would be to use nylon so there's no stretch. I went through several tries to make it sit right but no matter how tight I make it as soon as I relax, it comes right back. [emoji21] I'd really like to get it approved but I don't want to cheat and put gaffer tape or something just to get the shot, it kinda is what it is. If anyone's got a better solution, I'll totally try it and resubmit! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Well, I'm fresh off posting my EIB status and I figured I'd be pro-active and get this ball rolling too. Here's my submission for Centurion status for my Anovos build.

  16. Hi Guys! Well, it's that time again! I'm looking forward to humbly presenting my most recent build for EIB consideration. I purchased an Anovos kit on the first tier round and FINALLY got around to finishing this baby up! Really fun build! It looks great and troops really solid! I couldn't be more satisfied! And away we go!............

  17. I have long hair too and have found that a balaclava works excellent or an item called a Hoo-Rag is perfect too. They were offered on the Legion boards recently so I have a 501st one but they have tons of cool designs. Here's the website: ----------------- I use both but tend to just put my hair in a ponytail then put the hoo rag over it. It tucks into the back of my neckseal. ------------------ Good luck!
  18. Thanks guys! I'm all over this thing now! Sorry for the redundant thread!
  19. Looks like I'm late to the party! I just saw the other thread on this here!
  20. Hey guys! Haven't posted in a while, I've been absent as of late for a myriad of "real life" reasons but just saw on FB and the RPF about the new EFX armor! It looks pretty accurate. What are the thoughts on this so far over here? Looks interesting! Wanted to hear from my brothers and sisters in this world! Some pics from SDCC: http://yodasnews.net/sdcc2013/displayimage.php?album=5&pid=875#top_display_media And the RPF thread: http://www.therpf.com/f9/efx-reveals-boba-fett-legend-stormtrooper-legend-stormtrooper-armor-190520/
  21. Congrats Phil! And thank you Mathias! Both of you guys are just awesome!
