  1. Howdy! Question: Can a Rubies Supreme Stormtrooper costume be modified into an approvable kit? I'm trying to produce a pro/con list for a prospective member, whether going down this road is even possible. If so, are there any WIP threads here showing/explaining the process? Thank you for any help.
  2. So not much more then... Same here. But the pack was too cool not to make. I'll use it as a table-draw for now.
  3. N/M... found the post in the other build thread. Ordered the pack dingy hook from mr paul (Transaction ID 3MJ523333H4679643). Got the pack dyed, didn't take great so hit it with some Duplicolor car vinyl spray. Just waiting on the cam-locks and the hook, but have everything else, so I'll be assembling mine tomorrow.
  4. What are members using to fill and shape the main pouch area, and the three pockets? Anyone have pic of what they used?
  5. I (believe) I have the AM 2.0 armor and I'm 6'1" @ 225#.
  6. Nice to see a positive thread (discussion) about this kit. Thanks for the advice and build info.
  7. Tour 03: Tioga Downs Location: Tioga, NY (USA) Date: October 31, 2015 Debriefing: TK-9215 reporting in. Stalked the shadows at Zombiefest. Staggered into a Jedi and he found a gooey spot... got his light saber though. Ate a few of his friends. Good times.

  8. Tour 02: Scare-A-Con Location: Verona, NY (USA) Date: September 12, 2015 Debriefing: TK-9215 reporting in. Scare-A-Con is a popular Horror and Sci-Fi convention in upstate New York. My Death Trooper was well received by the public and I enjoyed staggering around the vendor's area. I supported The 501st Legion's Garrison Excelsior at this fun event.

  9. The shiny white zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of blasters only, there are no disintegrations in the red zone...
  10. chrskmbr, Facebook killed hot linking, so I now use Photobucket for my images.
  11. Took my DT out for it's first official stagger at Rhode Island Comic Con. Had a lot of good feedback, and PMs about finishing touches. Spent the week before RICC deepening some scratches, undercut some of the plate loss more, and adding some nicks-and dings along all of the contact edges really brought it together. Rubbed the glow frost off the brow rubber so it looks black again. Had a very productive morning: Did a photo-shoot in a clean lobby corner to better assess the changes. Then staggered out into the parking garage where we could use single light sources to create some great shadow shots. Hung out in a stairwell for a while… staggered after some people as they unloaded their cars. Joined the VIP line as they filtered in, made my way to the NEG booth where they had a trash compactor display. Well, you know where I spent the next hour or two. I have a knack for standing completely still, in that department store mannequin kind of way. With my bucket askance, people jumped in for photos oblivious of my intent. I’d wait patiently for them to get at least their one good shot, then (with my voice-distorting amp) I’d let out a pain-ridden moan and stretch out my arms towards them. “Oh, yeah. Oooh, ahhh, that's how it always starts. Then later there's running and screaming.†Yes, I was rewarded by screams. After more pics, they’d wander off, then I’d reset. After that rotation of spectators leaves, a new round of unsuspecting replacements present themselves. It was most successful with the VIP hour since there were fewer people to give away the gag.
  12. Tour 01: Rhode Island Comic Con Location: Providence, RI (USA) Date: November 1, 2014 Debriefing: TK-9215 reporting in. I supported The 501st Legion's New England Garrison at Rhode Island Comic Con. This was my first deployment as Death Trooper. I staggered into the Death Star trash compactor and waited for unsuspecting visitors. The response was favorable and I was later joined by another Death Trooper. It was a fun way to help raise funds for the Hasbro Children's Hospital.

  13. If there wasn't some flexibility in the CRL, they wouldn't encourage you to come up with a backstory for or how your particular Trooper succumbed to the (virus), how long he's been dead and what or where he's been since that time. If every DT kit had to look like – could only look like – the references, they would not have broken down the decision making process as thoroughly as they did (see Tips #2, 3 & 4): http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/16595-death-trooper-tips/ It already faces the restriction of it not allowed to be a member’s primary costume, and members self regulate the venues it is worn at. We are only wearing it at venues where a similar genera is already expected by the host and their guests. I’d be happy to wear it just once a year. And it’s a great “renewable†costume. When your TK looses it’s luster, you repurpose it into a TD. When that starts to fall apart, you repurpose it into a DT.
