  1. Mike spent more time on my armor than I think I did. I'm a bigger trooper so that presented many challenges for Mike. We got to EIB and that was mainly because of Mikes patience with me. He's not only good with the specs of the suits. He's a great motivator as well.
  2. I'm 6'0 and 240. I have wrestled my whole like so I have thick legs and I got EIB with AM armor. I upgraded to RT mod chest and back because it's wider. You can search my user name and watch my build and updates. The key is teaming with local garrison mates and getting help during the build. Every garrison has someone that is an expert at any given costume. Yes, you can pull off a TK. It's not for nothing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. This is where it lands on my neck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My neck is 18 inches and the mic barely goes half way around my neck. I turn it sideways and it almost picks up some voice but it's not very good. I have to turn the acker up high and then I get really loud static burst and low voice. I'm super bummed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for posting the video and review. I just ordered mine. Anyone else in the US have an estimate on the basic air-mail option from them?
  6. Congrats Eric. Manny and Vern - Thanks for stepping up and running as well. I look forward to some big things from all three of you guys this year.
  7. My best advice, is to wear your suit a few times and then start making adjustments. When I was building mine, I thought about all of the mods I wanted to make to the inside of my bucket almost daily. Then I wore it for a few hours at local troops. I wanted cool gears and electronics for show in case someone wanted to look inside and all of that. Now, after a few years with a TK... I have random foam blocks hot glued in different parts of it to make sure it stays put and so I can actually see out of the eyes. Here in Arizona it's hot so draining your bucket is a real thing. It sounds like the
  8. well we know they have the suits in storage at this point. We know Mary Franklin produced it. What are the odds that she will let someone get the specs so we can make some suits? They will want us in full force promoting the movie as it gets closer to opening night - What are the odds from those that know her?
  9. I want to hug you right now brother! I have been looking for a solution to my mic issues and could never find anything good on thoat mics. I wanted to try one or see someone else's setup and your video sold me on the idea. Looking forward to just putting my helmet on and not spending time trying to adjust the mic in the helmet.
  10. Thanks for the feedback Eric! I really appreciate you taking a look at everything. I'm debating the painting of the shims still so that's why the rivets are still brass. I will finish shaping them either way. These are newer shims I added after dropping a few inches since my original EIB application. The rivets are the correct size, I will throw a ruler up with them if I end up going further. I'll do the same with the thighs. I had to bondo them, glue the cover strip over that, and then paint them. I'll get closer pics of them up soon. The trap paint is an easy fix, as is the rest of t
  11. Thanks Jim. I think its the nature of game. Always looking to make our kits as perfect as possible giving the sizes and shapes we come in.
  12. I know Eric is offering feedback now, and I look forward to reading his suggestions for "next steps." I'm all ears for anyone else's comments too. Thanks Isaac
  13. Check out duneseagarrison.com and make an account on our forums. We have some folks in your area that can help you with your build and we can suggest the best kit for your body/build. Take care, Isaac
  14. Here is an update about a year later as to what I've done since I got my EIB and looking ahead to Cent at some point. I have upgraded the blaster to a Doopy Doo resin kit and metal scope rail: I have added new shims with the six split rivets (haven't painted them yet: I have hand painted where the decals were on the helmet: I have lost just over 3 inches in my waist and in my thighs so the legs fit a little better these days. I have upgraded the chest and back to RT-Mod since my original application and moved to bars/bolts for strappi
  15. Nailed it! As someone who is considering going under the microscope of applying for Cent, there is nothing more unmotivating than seeing replies like: This is wrong. Your ____ isn't right. or even worse: "well you meet all the checked boxes so I'll pass it." Offering suggestions to help move forward to correct issues is a huge plus. Phil was really good at that. I read a comment on one of his reviews that basically said, the thighs were off so if the applicant cant bring the thighs up, lets look at your strapping and drop the cod down. Here's to hoping we see more than just
