  1. OX Props looks great, but he doesn't make the actual parts, which crookknight does. So, unless someone is willing to print/build a pack from OX Props, the rest of us our SOL in that regard. In the end though, it's great to see these getting some love. I remember the first space pack I bought that was very crude but worked, much like back 15 years ago as a sandtrooper we had to make our packs out of items we found in Good Will and Walmart, even making our own frames from PVC as there were no suppliers on anything.
  2. I have a hard copy of the below which was chock full of historical information, and well worth the hard cover admission price (you can find them used for $28 or so). https://smile.amazon.com/Making-Star-Wars-Definitive-Original/dp/0345494768/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=making+of+star+wars+book&qid=1668180429&sprefix=making+of+star+%2Caps%2C153&sr=8-1&ufe=app_do%3Aamzn1.fos.006c50ae-5d4c-4777-9bc0-4513d670b6bc
  3. For sure! What a fantastic father-son connection and a way to honor his legacy. This should be broadcast more widely. Maybe talk to the Legion PRO?
  4. Absolutely gorgeous build - hope to be able to bid on it soon.
  5. Agreed - we should probably do a eBlast on this alone. I knew of several folks who could have easily qualified but have not, and have probably forgotten about it.
  6. Utter rubbish. You must ship it to me for proper disposal, lest others get the wrong idea of accuracy. j/k - it's awesome! Simply exquisite.
  7. Here is me giving them a work out. Man, that grubhub order is getting late...where is that guy?
  8. Dunno about you guys, but it sure makes me wish I had an "in" to be in just one episode, just one.
  9. Thanks Glen - your detective work is second to none.
  10. I have to say I was expecting only a pair of binocs, not an impeccably designed and executed carrying case. My pictures are nowhere near as good as Adam's, so I'll let his stand on his own. The craftsmanship is truly a reflection of this talent. Fortune was kind in that they arrived on Friday and I trooped with them yesterday. One of my garrison-mates should be sending me some photos that I'll post as soon as I get them from here. They are paired to my phone, but it's a bit inconvenient to pull my phone out while in full TK. I think I'll get a small, used smartphone (with no SIM) and put make some loops that I can store on it. This way I can use it in costume and not worry about my real phone being lost/damaged. Alternatively, I'm thinking I can have a spotter, officer, or crewman with an iPad do that for me. In any event, they are absolutely a work of art. Credit to @justjoseph63 as well for an amazing kit. Adam, I can't thank you enough for your amazing work. You're the best!!
  11. OK, I can't find where I posted this before so sorry for the repeat. This is what my left thigh looks like after a troop. Two questions: 1. What is the best way to get this off of my thigh and make it look normal again? 2. Is there a good holster vendor who sells holsters that don't do this? Cash in fist as I am unhappy with my current rig.

    I think we have all been there... Or the other - velcro first, troop a bit, adjust, then when done glue.
  13. FWIW, I like "fortress of solitude" more than "man cave". This is primo, my friend, primo!
  14. Actually I'd buy a new set from Joseph to drop ship to you - would that be OK? Happy to move to DM if that's easier.
  15. This is really cool. Would you be willing to do this for someone else as a service? Asking for a friend ;-)

    Hahahahaha - love that last one in particular
  17. Not with the kidney. It's normal though that it can take a few troops to dial in your armor. No amount of standing in front of a mirror can prepare you for it. You may end up needing some foam padding too. Have people take a bunch of pix and then adjust, troop for an hour & take pix, adjust, etc.
  18. Thanks - that's a really nice display and I may get one too soon.
