  1. Loved "In the Shadow of Vader", this should be equally good
  2. It's good work - thanks for sharing
  3. Hey all, Every guy has a "thing" they collect, whether it be hats, belt buckles, or whatever. For some reason I have like 100 coffee cups. Yeah, it's nuts but there it is. Rather than uploading my designs to Redbubble or similar and paying $15+ for a mug that I can get retail for $2, I'm thinking of getting a machine so I can do them at home for my personal use (or to give as presents to family/friends - I have no desire to sell anything). It's hard to figure out what is reasonable in terms of price but also works - I don't want to spend $100 on a machine and then find out the stuff can't be put in a dishwasher or doesn't work well. I'm trying to do research and things seem to point to this machine, as in addition to creating coffee mugs I can use it for t-shirts too, and anyone who knows me knows I also like t-shirts too (especially now that I'm 100% WFH and don't need to dress up for the office). https://www.amazon.com/F2C-Machine-T-shirt-Transfer-Sublimation/dp/B01ANF8H1K/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=FC2+PRO+6+IN+1+COMBO&qid=1592488315&sr=8-3 Are there better recommendations? Does anyone actually one one of these types of machines, and if so which model are you using?
  4. These are awesome! Are you OK if I print some of these out and tape them up in my home office?
  5. Excellent points - thanks for highlighting those Caleb. You are spot on that working with your GML on this as you go and seeing it as an educational process is much better than just tossing pix over the wall and hoping the other side understands in a vacuum.
  6. Those are awesome - always a great prop to have.
  7. I'm guessing it will be a variant vs. a new CRL. TBH if it were done today, the ANH Hero would be a variant, not a new CRL. Then again, the Reserve Pilot wouldn't exist either, and many clones would be variants too.
  8. Love the harmony here guys - now let's make it so!
  9. +1 - an Endor variant it long overdue.
  10. Good point. TBH, for the ROTJ at least, I'm not sure. Even with the TD while I have my preference, I think some variations are OK as some were squeaky clean, some were dirty on Endor. I think it's a lot of how we word it TBH.
  11. I think we just need to disagree. There were a lot of wardrobe flubs in ANH that if they had done it again would not have been missed. IOC also doesn't allow flubs in their CRLs, and I don't think we should either. The hallmark of a TK is uniformity, whereas every TD was unique.
  12. This is your last chance to be part of the first millennium, and it will never come again. Time to really just pull out the stops and get it the rest of the way there. EI was designed to be done for a modest sum of $$ (say $50 or so) and a half-day of work. It's really not a huge jump like going Centurion. Just think about it. You can say that yes, you were part of the original 1000. Any commemorative items we make - even if it's just a banner decal that goes on your armor bin, will be something to say you were part of. Really can't under play how historic this is going to be.
  13. For the shoulder bells if you use snaps you should be able to attach them to the bridges before putting on the chest/back. That is what I do, so it goes on like a shirt. For the TD, yeah that is a pain at times but you could also put your belt on sideways, add the TD and rotate it back. The belt doesn't have to be perfectly horizontal - you can see in the movies at times they move around a bit.
  14. From a galaxy far, far away, coming to a neighborhood near you. I can't wait to see this at DragonCon
  15. Fortunately you have a lot of options given your height. ATA, AP, etc. you can check with each to find out time (wait list) and cost. EDIT: it also depends on where you are located, e.g. US vs. UK/EU and shipping/duties.
  16. And I have responded to this, also on the 501st boards with the below: https://www.501st.com/councilres.php Council Resolution 1: Legion's Stance on RecastingVote completed on 03/13/2006: 35 Yes; 10 No; 3 AbstainReference LinkResolution: The 501st Legion does not condone, support, or encourage re-casting. It is, however, outside of the scope of this club's mission, charter, authority, jurisdiction, and purview to consume our time and energies as a volunteer organization in efforts to prosecute those who, of their own volition, choose to engage in re-casting. As leaders in this hobby, we have an obligation to our membership to ensure that they are not taken advantage of with false claims and misleading sales practices.
  17. Well, TBH it's the usual suspects who cause all the churn. 90% of the Legion is actually pretty good people trying to do the right thing. Like any group, there are always bad apples.
  18. For those newer folks, Matt = Matt Gauthier = trooperexpert. Trooperexpert engaged in many flame wars here on these boards and was banned for that as well as for selling his molds publicly to Tony Sagun (Guns) for a chunk of money, and then recasting his earlier work and selling all over again. Yes, Matt did a lot to bring to light a lot of what we know about the original suits, but the way he went about his business practices was unethical, and his conduct on these and other boards (yes, he was banned from MEPD and even non-501st forums) was well deserved.
  19. I added my $.02 to the Legion boards. They really are going to bully anyone who disagrees with them. Sigh...
  20. That has a lot of presumptions. The reality is that recasting hurts our hobby. See FYI if you want to discuss recasting in general, please start a new thread. This thread is specific to a particular situation.

    What do you have?

    Holy smokes! Where do you store all that? You're wife is a saint as well, I must say...
  22. Well, he was accused of recasting his ANH face plate and data surfaced for that years ago, yet it fell on deaf years. Even for the armor (most recasters cast from the inside of a suit which is why they tend to be smaller than the original. The working theory based on evidence people saw was that he recast from the outside a TE suit and then did an awful lot of work to make it more accurate). Thank you Mark for posting up such conclusive evidence. I am sure the decision to do so must have not been an easy one, and it took time and care to ensure that your claims were accurate and detailed to the point that it is obvious to anyone what happened.
  23. I would think it would be one CRL with options vs. multiple CRLs.
