  1. I looked all over and couldn't find anyone else with this issue so I feel like an idiot BUT...


    I purchased the Doopydoos Hasbro e-11 stand. I put it together, I placed the blaster on it, and the blaster immediately tips over and falls off.

    The e-11 is so side heavy that the blaster tips every single time I place it on. All the pictures show it sitting nice and upright.


    Am I missing something?

    I even had my significantly smarter wife look and she cant figure out this puzzle either. 



  2. I got the decals from TrooperBay and I'm not very happy with them. They are small and are not crisply printed, very grainy.

    Here is the comparison between TrooperBay (left) and Doopydoos (right):



    BUT with that being said, I used the Doopydoos decal and covered it with the resin i posted above. I'm really happy with the results:




    It has a lot of tiny bubbles but when you aren't holding it under a light, they are barely noticeable, plus it happened because it has a 1 year shelf life....and I've had it sitting around for 2+ years. Oops. Also I'm very glad the black paint didn't bleed and the resin didn't leak out of the bottom. Those were my biggest worries.


    I'll post more when the weather gets better and I can paint my blaster and attach the rear scope cap.

  3. I honestly believe that this is where the "fullbacks" and "linebackers" of the 501st are going to go for armor. If he would market it as such, he'd make a killing.


    When I buy my armor, this review alone will help me make my decision. haha


    "Nostalgic Empire" It's the newest line from Troopergear and Tupperware TK, the maker of AM.


    Any more information on this? I did a lot of searches on the forum and on Google and I couldn't find any threads pertaining to pricing or contact info.

  4. Blasters are optional and GML's can't decide on approval or not for not having the right kind of blaster. But technically the conversion kit only makes you an ANH blaster. I would recommend getting a pipe blaster kit instead of a hasbro either way.


    My lack of skills, tools, and room to build is disturbing. ^_^

  5. Any update if Doopydoos has gotten any better? I'm days away from ordering the Hasbro conversion kit but I'm hoping it doesn't take months.

    Also, as I was doing research for a legitimate conversion kit, I noticed threads for ANH, ESB, ROTJ E-11 blasters.


    Would the basic Doopydoos conversion kit qualify, despite what armor I decide to build in the future?

  6. Welcome Nick. There are 5 of us Carida members living around the Newark area. Where bouts are you? Have you signed up on the Carida forums?


    That's great. I'm in Newark myself. Right off 40 near Bear.

    I found the site a few days ago but didn't know where was a forum. I'll sign up for that now.

    Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully I'll get to meet up with you guys soon, even if I just attend one of the appearances in the area.

  7. I have been a huge fan of Star Wars for as long as I can remember and a big fan of the 501 for years. It is my goal to have my armor and join the ranks of the 501 before the new movies are released in 2015.


    I've been told this site is invaluable to anyone looking to build the right armor and join. From what I've seen everyone is very welcoming to newbies and it's greatly appreciated. It can be overwhelming when looking into the criteria and 501 approved modifications so a place like this is great.


    Looking forward to the journey as much as the destination.
