  1. if you go with an MTK the sides already come extended for bigger waists at that height
  2. did anovos make the 7's? curious if the new suits are more comfortable
  3. if the fans are really that loud you could get a spy-ear type hearing device, tape it under your forearm or wherever and plug in some noise cancelling earbuds.. they arent perfect but other than that id say opt for some quieter fans. i use evilboy's kit and can still hear people fine that are under 5 feet away -------------
  4. i have one of those helmets. the cheeks and tubes are crushed in a little and it looks flat, i heated mine up with a heatgun and blew it out a little to look more correct. theyre slushcast resin recasts of the fiberglass set for stun helmet that was 3d scanned off the screen used original back in mid 2000's.
  5. use a smoke motorcycle visor if you cant get in touch with a maker. iirc trooperbay ships lens material internationally
  6. i work for verizon but i have tmobile. the 5c,5s, and iphone 6 dont have a whole lot of difference. same cameras and stuff. the s has the fingerprint scanner and the 6 is just bigger and the battery lasts 2 hrs longer. i get more calls about droids not working than any other phone, iphones come in a close 2nd. i havent had anyone complain about the galaxy s4 or 5.
  7. Since the Legion has passed that no new members may be approved with an FX bucket, i felt a poll as to why grandfathered troopers with them was appropriate. Do you have plans to upgrade in the future, or are you old school and "if it came with the kit, it stays with the kit"? your vote is anonymous.
  8. a space station? poor ben must be going senile, i can see where he may have gotten confused... art credit: http://smattila.deviantart.com/art/In-the-Coldness-of-Space-154601709
  9. one of my suits had that issue, i just cut it at the angle with the thigh so it wouldnt stick my butt. sometimes comfort is more important that aesthetics. it looks weird, but people wont be looking there. he should ask the gml, but id just trim it off. you def dont want it tearing a hole in the undersuit.
  10. iirc JR recast FX in order to supply the uk with the fx suits we had in the states ~10 years ago before the more accurate (and costly) suits were in demand
  11. make it yourself out of a thick for sale sign or extra abs, its quite easy and holds well with a rough sanding and 2 part epoxy. screen derived size, fx, custom td also, the buttons are... pennies! sanded down, painted with enamel, and epoxied.
  12. they mustve found it floating in space after the death star blew up
  13. man i didnt even know people were posting in this thread lol. a lot of guys in my squad just stand around, i'm the active one that talks to people. the public don't like when you're too in character and silent like a team mascot that's not allowed to say anything. being social matters
  14. great video! this'll help a lot of people. all my mics have feedback but luckily i went sandy so the speaker is in the backpack. still, the throat mic sounds great, thanks for the review
  15. the standard now is eastbay. i prefer the mock neck as i dont use a neckseal:------------ the shirt and pant combo is often on sale both for $24.99-29.99 the cold weather version doesnt matter much unless your troops are consistantly cold areas, its hot enough in the armor anyway. NOTE: to existing troopers with eastbay compression pants, they have discontinued the all black pants, the new ones are 2.0 (tights) and have white stitching near the groin which may be visible, nothing a black sharpie/felt pen cant fix.
  16. use acrylic paint. the 50cent stuff from Walmart. it should not say permanent on the label. dont drip it on too thick or itll be harder to take off. use a brush to apply drips and a sponge to cover wide areas. to remove, simply use paper towels damp with ~90% rubbing alcohol or Everclear. it won't stain the plastic unless there's scratches or sanded areas.
  17. did you right click on the link for the file you want and select Save Target As?
  18. this thread is in need of a video! any problems with feedback with the amp in close proximity to the mic?
  19. i never liked the long elastic above.a simple T shape is more secure for me. 2in black elastic holds chest and back together, then a snap in the middle which a 1in elastic interceps and connects to, then connects the shoulder bell. in the middle of the shoulder bell, another 1in elastic strap connects the bell to the top of the bicep. no twisting
  20. this it what i had to do to my bass amsterdams, not hard and holds well if you SLIGHTLY bend the snaps into an oval shape the snap super tight. do a little at a time so its secure enough to not pop off while walking. also if youre careful with a heat gun you can bell out the shin bottoms like the fx shins had. i also recommend gluing in a stirrup strap to hold the shin over the boot and it wont pop up while walking
  21. the link at the top of this page still works, tk file confirmed working. i noticed skutch added a few more like the droids n such too, but the gonk file is broken
  22. id throw on some shocktrooper style stripes or something on the tubes and an imperial logo on the top right of the cap, then weather the heck out of it, just a suggestion
