    Hotel Requesting Review (ATA)

    this kinda bugs me: they should line up and be a flat line not a bump. also this, simply for security that the butt plate doesnt wing out and snap. connect it on each side to the kidney plate. as do these: id take some return edge off the chest piece, the edges of front to back should be flush-er, and someones mentionned the drop boxes i think already. these few things just distract my eye.

    Velcro for body armor

    I always go by the rule that velcro is not structural, nor easily repeatable. On shin closures, sure. Chest to back connect, yes. But I glued it in place so nothing moves. Snaps lock things in to the same place every time. I can put my tk on in the dark and know its in the right position, and snaps are easier for handlers to help with. Nothing on the inside counts though. If velcro is your thing, go for it.
  5. I just clicked it and it worked fine.
  6. Find your local garrison, and find out of someone there builds tks. Save some coin, get it properly fitted, and do some work on it yourself.

    Light in TFA helmet

    In the alpha 75 it was dubbed a feeding nipple. No other explaination ever came up for it. Could be the pressure release, or a hard comms connection in vehicles.

    Damn. I cant make a Deathtrooper out of that. It will clash with the little pumpkin.

    ANH Stunt helmet scratch build

    Nice project. If you are sculpting in clay i presume you plan on eventually pulling abs? The mandibles seem too thick for an ANH Stunt helmet, proportionately.
  14. Every year our current mayor opens city hall to ... Hundreds for sure, couple thousand maybe, families, for pre-samhain trick ot treats. Witch handing out apples a la disney, predatory bird show, dozens of costumed volunteers, snacks and hot chocolate indoors. I decided last minute to attend, literally in 30 seconds, cuz i needed fun in an otherwise crap day. No troop pics, we all arrived at different times and with so much ground to cover, and so many people, I stumbled about on my own. 90 minutes in 3 degrees C, 39 F? , and didnt want to stop. This was far too much fun. Huge line for the treat tent. Not 1 scared kid, everyone in a good mood and smiles galore. Thriller and time warp on the speakers. Sooo many high fives...5 little yodas, a vader, a kylo and praetorian guard, I was all ready in my costume too, hoping Vader liked it... Vader was not a fan..there was a red flash, then i had a terrible headache...
  15. This was my 4th year for this event. A friend from university had leukemia and fought it for 4 years before leaving us. The crowd loves the lightsabers and ive never heard anybody question there are troops at this event. We mingle, pose, and head out to the route the walkers take, and give them a lightsaber salute arch to pass through. Last night it took about 11 minutes for everyone walking to pass by, most with their own lit lantern style luminaries, and many saying "thanks" to us for the salute:. Like we are the heroes at events like these. I opted to light up my armour:. The pathway is usually darkened for this event but, of course, not this time. You can kinda make out the el wire, and dozens took pics as they walked by. I tried a new idea:. Orange glowsticks folded into ribbons. It worked, and will be repeated. Ill get some ids for these after school.
  16. Dreams take flight is a cooperative initiative between Air Canada and Disney Parks--land and world. Basically, a plane full of kids of various challenging backgrounds, escorts, and team members, takes off at 0400 (zero dark oclock), destination Disney. They land, split into fire teams, invade the park, ride rides, laugh, smile, and likely tire the adults out. Each kid picks a souvenir from the gift shop:. They are actually forbidden from bringing money, its all free. The Gala event is a posh dinner and dance with silent auction to fundraise for the final total. I want to say 20 or 30 tables of 8, always sold out. The cost of each Dream Flight is about 190 000 Cdn. This was our 3rd year at the gala. It is a must troop event:. I handle and take pics at it every year so other troopers get a chance to experience the spotlight. https://www.dropbox.com/s/i1q1un7heyg1k4t/DSC00684.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ojcu8jxv04zw17/DSC00672.JPG?dl=0 Troopers: TK-15269 murray g TK-21615 jenny m Tk-4524 corey a Tk-27283 rob s Tk69323 mark t (handler and photographer)
  17. An early drive, random rail crossing stops, a fun group, many puppies, 2 or 3 shrieking kids, not too much rain.... Ok it was soggy, but people still lined the route. Always fun walking a community that loves a parade, attracts groups from other communitiez, but i could do without the monster truck. Tr-63613 paolo u. Tk-54218 eric b. (Id- 11861) jocasta bridget l.

    Thumpy's Sky Trooper

    Awesome. But, dont you need permission to take pics or videos of folks on troops?
  19. 0200 start, 0330 kids arrival, 0500 boarding plane to disneyworld. 125 kids, all got.new shirts and track suits and hats and bags and flight.to Disney, rides, food, and a souvenir. Accompanied by volunteers and medical staff, for a 20 hour day. Didnt take many pics due to kids. I lost count of high fives. At troops like these i tend to wander and stand by myself:. Many, many, families approach for pics because their child is intimidated by large groups, especially when troopers stary to run over to join. It prolongs the 2 second picture, and, really, nobody needs to be in every shot. I know Vader understands, as do a few troopers, given my demophobia and panic attacks. tk-69323 - mark t tk-15269 - murray tk-45526 - stephanie c. tk-4524 - corey a. tk-6050 - john m. ti-28401 - luc n sl-13550 - derek m. sl-2928 - jody h. ds-3097 - thea h.

    Dreams take flight Send Off

    Exactly. Let them encounter us in small groups so everyone is in a great picture, instead of crowded photographic messes.

    How much $ Should I have for this?

    At 18 you can start handling. Find your local garrison. Save for a few months. Or a year. Dont buy the cheapest thing you can find, it will be regretted. Start with a reserve pilot or crewman. Then save for a TK.
