  1. Between 15 & 20 garrison members are looking to build FOTK suits. This will be the place-holder where they will chart their progress. Stay tuned
  2. Thanks so much for doing this Rebecca - it's much appreciated!

    sci-fire.com a Scam?

    Good to hear

    Armor and bucket color not matching.

    Yeah, and photos are tough as some things really stand out in a photo but are hard to tell in person, and vice versa.
  5. There used to be a tutorial somewhere too in how to make them yourself, but it seems gone. Someone may care to replicate it - basically you boil plastic and use your (gloved) thumb to make an impression, though I heard people using spoons too.

    Kevin's 1st TK

    For ESB the holster can cover the snaps if you can put it on upside down. Else the simple solution (which is what I usually did) was to just get a second belt.

    Hi from Salt Lake, Utah

    Research for sure - a few days of thinking through things will save you an awful lot of grief. Welcome

    Trooper Spreadsheet?

    The xls is great! We should definitely memorialize it on FISD, right @Ripper_L?

    It's looking really good Eric - never better since the earliest of days. Well done

    I think it was because I was typing a long reply - maybe 10 minutes or so. For sure I'll let you know if anything else goes awry.

    I have not with only one exception - I had one post where "Submit Reply" did nothing. I refreshed the page and everything has been fine since, e.g. every other time I do it, it's been OK.

    Trooper Spreadsheet?

    Yup, basically if we start off with the ANH stunt, the hero is basically just a separate helmet and additional rivets to hold the holster in place. EBS is also a different helmet, different holster, blaster, and hand guards. You can look at the CRLs that are online easily enough. ROTJ is a very different beast!

    Truly - thanks for all you & @Locitus have done. They certainly *feel* faster...

    Thanks Eric and Mathias for making this happen! It feels faster already.
  16. There is also this list which is the best info we have on FOTK armor vendors: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/43484-wtb-tfatlj-armor-who-is-current/
  17. OK peeps - I heard from some troopers that FISD seems to think FO TK's are 2nd class citizens or something. I was surprised to see the question come up on the election Q&A, quite honestly, especially given the big investment this detachment has been making the past several months on FOTKs. For example: TFA CRL - added L2/L3 so now these people can get L2/L3 as well. TLJ CRL - done! Including L2/L3 and we now have TLJ Centurions TLJ-E CRL - done! Like the TLJ TK, we are now seeing applicants approved at all levels TLJ Phasma - text is done! Just waiting on full photos (Misty is working on this) 10th Anniversary patch - split with OT & FO TK on it to honor both troopers Even back in Celebration, the poster had both FO & OT on it. We did an FO TK FISD coin as well. Given all this - I'm trying to understand where the sentiment that FO TKs are not somehow first class citizens is coming from. Actually there is a whole queue of OT TK stuff that has been sitting so we can focus on FO TK. Questions? Concerns? Ideas? Sound off and let's here them!

    That wouldn't be a problem at all. Honestly, that's what a lot of people do with overseas merch - at least that was my experience when people did patches. Easier to ship 20 or 30 to one address in say Germany and then they can just distribute them much more cost effectively locally. I have an idea of coin numbers, but am still working to get patch numbers. They took a vacation lately so I'm hoping to square this away this week for everyone, e.g. what is left.

    They are all in the for sale area. Two different coins (FO Riot Trooper and Phasma), plus a bunch of patches. Aside: your sig banter is one of the best I've ever seen!

    Official FO TK Ideas Thread

    It certainly is #1 on the list, but we still have a ton load of coins/patches left over from previous runs we're still trying to dig out of. No point in creating more stuff until the stuff we already have clears out.

    Rogue One Stormtrooper CRL

    For the baton, I see no evidence that it has to be telescoping, and agree that it's most likely the one like the patrol trooper. I'd like to udpate the CRL to reflect this, and also allow cordura for the hoslter, as again it's not clear at all that this has to be leather. Plus, I'll add a note about the silver tip being visible on the bottom. Any objections? And, if somone can get me a clear pix of one, that would be ideal, as the CRL shows the telescoping one.

    Rogue One Stormtrooper CRL

    Ear bumps and tube stripe questions are fixed. As for the biceps & forearms, if there is a clear screen cap to show that they are using overlap, then it's an easy fix to the CRL. It's been ages since I last looked at this, so if someone is willing to play detective...

    yes! first person to get photos in that the LMOs can use also becomes the CRL model. I'll also send a free Phasma coin. How is that for an incentive?

    Official FO TK Ideas Thread

    We are still waiting on photos. That's all we need to close out that CRL, but until people submit them it's in limbo...
  25. OK, let's get this in the July or August CRL thread and get it going.
