    Ok thanks, I will have to invest in 1 off those, the stormtroopers in the film's must have been abut vertically challenged

    stormtroopers are five foot nine inches tall.  the extras in the OT were taller, which is why their armour fit poorly. AM, TM, RT-MOD are enlarged for bigger and taller troopers.

    Hello fellow members, I would like to delete my account in the fisd since I will proceed to cancel my stormtrooper suit because it is no longer operational. Could you tell me how to do it. Greetings from Spain brothers

    what happened?  is it broken beyond repair? no longer fits?  

  3. if the wireless mic is at your mouth it is less of an issue.  if its attached to the bucket and a few CM away, you need to turn it up to be useful, which echoes and causes feedback from the aker as well if it is too loud.


    even my wired aker mic hums a bit if i have the amp turned up too loud.  and its in my chest plate less than a foot from my mic: 99% of the time it doesn't cause any feedback.

    That´s the problem. Disney issued the License, not EA. I am hoping for a response on another email shortly though. I explained this to them in the email properly the first time, hence the confusion.


    what are you trying to find out?


    here is the simple answer.


    corporations don't talk about existing licenses because they are legally bound NOT to discuss them.  it gets them sued.


    corporations are not obligated to publish terms of existing, or former, licenses, for the same reason.  


    i do not know how the Freedom of Info act works in the USA, but in Canada, any citizens may make a request under our Access to Info act regarding aspects of anything.


    For example, if you wanted to see the original discussions held by Canada, the RCMP, and Disney, surrounding the licensing of the RCMP Mountie image by Disney, you could make a request to those agencies in Canada (the RCMP and whichever department had the discussions at the time), formally or informally, and they will respond with any information not excluded from public view: personal info, confidential sources, or something already slated to be released in the near future.


    honestly, why on earth would a corporation discuss legal contracts with [no offence] Joe Nobody.


    if you have IP infringement info or concerns, contact their legal department with evidence.  If you want to buy them out, you should have people to do that for you, tbh.

    if you just want to gripe, contact customer care. in all cases, do it on paper, send it registered, and expect nothing :-)

    Have had people rip designs and material seller info from my shop before so i can relate :/  
    You should have some form of protection if possible, like a patent etc. Probably hard to do but one can speculate at least.

    there are patents. LFL and Disney own them.  Anovos has a licence, Rubies used to.


    the rest of us blatantly, willingly, unforgivingly, violate IP daily.  with tacit permission from TPTB to do so, because of the 501st visions of Costumes, Community, and Charity.



  6. Hi. I think you will find a Tie Pilot can be the same price or more than your TK.  But as others have said, start with the boots, suit, belt and hat, and get approved as a reserve pilot.  and a crewman.  then gather the TI parts.


    If he wants ti stand out, do a 181st pilot. less armor, different suit and cogs, so no three-bie costumes for free, but there are a lot less 181st pilots.

    Am I correct in reading that the line 24 Snaps will have to be removed from the Ab to belt connection and are to be replaced by S snaps? Are the holes the same size for both those snaps?

    no need.  if it cannot be seen, typically, it cannot be judged.  if you want more accuracy, sure, replace them.  i kept the line 24 snaps, i dislike my hard belt falling off.

    Kind of a noob question.  I am not confident enough to point on the blue cheek stripes.  Instead I am going to use the decal from AP until I am more confident in painting.  I want to make my armor Level 3.  Are there any guidelines in reference to how far apart the stripes have to be?  I looked at the photos and cant put my finger on the width between them.  I may seem like I am over analyzing.

    2 ways. 


    1 -get two yellow pencils.  lay one on the mandible (jaw) next to the cheek.  use the other pencil to draw a line so you know where the spacing is.  photocopy the sticker set and cut out the space between the sticker areas, and use it as a guide to place your stickers.  it is ok to be wonky a tiny bit on the stripe to stripe space, just try to be very careful on the top and bottom edge so it looks awesome.


    2 - buy a stencil.  tape them on. paint a layer of white paint on and let dry.  this will prevent the blue paint from bleeding. then, mix the blue paint. mix it again. shake it up. mix it again. shake the living bejebus out of it, it separates more easily than the trade federation.  then, paint the blue stripes. let dry for 2 days. paint the blue again after repeating the mixing strategy.  you will have great, lvl 3 tube stripes.


  9. length is less important than width. how big around are you, and are you going for more than basic approval?


    I am 5 foot 8, 170 pounds, long legs and arms, short torso.  33 inseam and if i was an inch taller in the legs theyd be perfect.


    midesectionwise, I have no shims, and am about 100 cm around the navel (39 inches).  any bigger and you will need shims, or have black spaces.


    i would suggest AM for taller buklier folks, and AP has extended ab and kidney sections for more robust tummies.

    Yeeeeeeeah. I'll post some pics after the 1st in my thread. Have some serious gaps in my chest/ab plate.

    i am 5 foot 8 and about 170 pounds. If i was 5 foot 9 with the extra inch in my femur, ATA would fit me perfectly. It and others are just designed around the ideal Tk from canon sources.  When trooping I am usually the shortest (or tallest) and I proudly reply "I am the correct height, actually. Come get a pic." to the obvious, over asked, question.
