  1. We all have different body types, and there a plenty of troopers here that don't fit the movie mold. Keep in mind that technically the ab plate and kidney plate do not need to close all of the way. You can have gaps on the side for basic level approval.


    However, you can also shim the sides to close all of the way with some extra ABS. You will learn all about how to do that here if that is the path you eventually take. Look at the various vetted armor makers on the getting started page and see what sounds right for you. AM may be a good choice. We are here to help with the rest.

  2. For those not keeping up with the changes, LFL revised the policy a bit last night. They are still requesting that we leave blasters at home for all Disney/ LFL troops and movie premieres until January 7th. They would prefer that we follow the policy for other troops, but essentially will defer to local units. Legion command is working hard to stay in constant communication with us and LFL on this issue.

  3. Is the internal strapping system in the chest/back made of webbing or elastic?  I know the arms are elastic and the thighs are webbing, but I have seen conflicting answers on what to use for the chest/back.


    Everyone has their own preferences for strapping, but IMHO I think elastic is best everywhere so that you have a little give when you move. Static elastic can stress the plastic creating higher likelihood of cracks.

  4. I'm always slow when it comes to posting troops! Not sure what my problem is. ;) Earlier this fall, some troops and I had an opportunity to make an appearance at the Lehigh Valley Buddy Walk in Allentown, PA. The walk raises money to battle Down Sydrome, and year-in/year-out, it is a great event to attend. Always lots of smiles! Here are a few pics of our troop:

    Not the droid we were looking for:






    ...you know, for the kids!

  5. It all depends on what you are trying to do. Rivets are only required at this time for level 3 Centurion status. Even so, the note only states that the originals used split rivets. You don't need to unless you are going for actual replication of the screen used suits -- i.e. beyond Centurion. The only real requirement (and again, only for the highest level of approval) is that the head be rounded or domed, and of the correct size.
