    LGBT troopers?

    Every troop and cause can find a home in the three "c"s of the 501st. Costumes. Charity. Community. Centuri...ok not that. Disney , themself, said the 501st is ok to go for pride events. GLB used to be about sexuality. LGBT became about gender. LGBTQA is still about gender, both for those identifying as LGTBQ, and those who just support their friends', and strangers', rights to identify as whomever they wish. Im in the A camp. Occasionally thats followed by hole. In this regard it means Ally. I feel really dumb for even posting this:. This thread wasnt a discussion about lgtbqa members. It was a call for shout outs to themselves, if they wanted to. OP: BRAVO ZULU for stepping up and out. Enjoy the prides. My garrison marches on the 27th in Ottawa. Ill be there suited up and rainbowed in support.

    CONTEST: Why a Stormtrooper?

    Stormtroopers, being the face of the franchaise, are the most recognized costume. Being one, interacting in character, brings smiles, cheers, jeers, and tears to fans of all ages. Of this I am proud, and proud to serve.

    Heres a question: what backplates will the pack fit over properly?

    How do you remove E600 from armor?

    Its just like that gooey crap that sticks credit cards to letters. Just rub it until it balls up and comes off.

    What else is needed for the spacetrooper CRL?
  8. the living force works in mysterious ways. either that guy was there because the skywalker twins need them to escape , or that route was presented to them because they had those tools. Neither of which mattered because all the troopers were under orders to shoot to miss and herd them back the falcon to escape so the tracking beacon would work.
  9. But have you put a headset mic on or a microphone inside near them and seen if the squeltch or not? Mine in the frown drove me bannas.

    Darth Vader Chest Armor

    Uh...the capes weight should sit on top and push it all down because it caps the entire shoulder and not just hangs off the back...? Otherwise id guess hidden latches in the pectorals and suit.

    Possible kit run.

    Welp first you should read the rules for selling ongoing runs and or one offs . second ...whos kit? all your other posts here are filled with how to questions and dont really strike me as a vendor whos done his own sculpts bucks and does his own pulls. 350 for a complete kit...sounds like a bad kit.

    Tk/Uk armor is it a rippoff

    I meant disney level as our sponsors. I used to say LFL Level meaning something our sponsors would hire for paid troops.

    Tk/Uk armor is it a rippoff

    ... we question armour origins and accuracy all the time. Nobody is attacking your friend or his decision to buy this set. Or yours for buying two sets to give to a sick friend. Thats awesome. Second judging by the pics we've see while the vendors comms may rock his quality assurance needs to look up quality assurance. If they are 300.00 a pop he did his research when anovos offered tier 1 pricing on 650 dollar kits with finished helmets. yes kits sell at that price. but only if they are expensive kits at 50% off. Would you have paid 600 for one? I expect some gmls to deny basic approval. I expect some gmls to allow it. I expect the quality will have to improve before any make eib or centurion. Thats just my opinion. Im entitled to have one. So are you. and yes. Im an armour snob. ATA FTW. No chocolate Jawas. But its all good if it looks good. I

    Yeah I'd ask for money back. It's Halloween costume grade, not Disney level.
  21. No elastic. Elastic is bad. Elastic is not structural. Like capes. No capes. No elastic capes. You want webbing for thighs. Otherwise they'll move around and pinch under cod's. Snap plates with males on thighs and female on one inch webbing looped over the belt so the thighs don't move when you twice side to side.

  23. Use the foam to keep the suit in place. But you may want to pad a belt instead of glued to the armour so the suit sits and moves easily but the padded belt keeps it where it needs to be. Presuming you hang thighs off a garter belt .

    Thats not an fx. Put the brow trim on it and ill bet it looks fine. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  25. And, oh... The belt is not structural. It should not be holding anything together. You should be able to forget it.and walk around and not notice. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
