  1. If LFL's reply is "same as FOTK armor, just in red", then I think we should presume they are regular FOTK boots, just in red. What I really want to see is how you'd describe the cape in a CRL.
  2. Wow - amazing! You look great These types of costumes are very hard to pull off.
  3. Have you thought of asking Mike Appling (TrooperBay)?
  4. GML's can now approve this costume direct! http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_rebels
  5. I'll follow-up with the LMOs - something isn't correct here.
  6. There is no such thing as a detachment approval. The LMO is the ultimate approval authority, and GMLs are authorized to approve on their behalf. Even still, as a GML when I approve someone, that can still be over-ridden by the LMO, and it's only the LMO who can assign TKIDs. Who told you there is FISD level approval?
  7. Usually GMLs will respond within 24-48 hours, though some garrisons...take longer.
  8. Here is a question wrt to return edge - before you put this in a CRL - the question is what problem are you trying to solve? Has this come up a lot? We can't put every detail in a CRL, so usually put ones where people have issues.
  9. Hey guys, Andrew – can you please update the first post so that there is a list of changes and their status as the first part? It will keep things clean for tracking. Any changes should be in keeping with the spirit of the awards, e.g. EI = a step up from base CRL that can be done for a low to moderate cost, and a moderate amount of effort. Parts/changes should be easy to come by. Centurion = as good as we can get it and builds upon L1/L2 requirements. Thus we’d never want to put something in EI that is very hard to do, or requires an extensive mod or a part that is very hard to get or expensive. Also, realize that we can’t include every possible permutation or costume flubs, e.g. just because there is a single TK on screen that does not have a holster doesn’t mean we’ll allow them to be optional, and just as there is – on BluRay freeze frame – gaffers tape and paint boo-boos doesn’t mean we’ll allow them either. CRLs should be pretty static and are usually done once a year for major changes. The ones we are doing monthly are usually small adds to L2/L3 that shouldn’t really affect people who’s builds are in flight. L1 items again if monthly are usually small items. The “official stance” is really whatever the DL & LMO agree on. Ultimately, the CRLs are owned by the LMO team and as they have trust in DLs, they allow the DL’s to make changes directly. Since I’ve been involved with the CRL process for over a decade and have written or re-written dozens of CRLs across 3 detachments, they’ve been pretty good about letting me update them directly. At some point it would be great to have a trusted FISD staff member as back-up, as at some point I’ll want to pull an Albin and retire from day-to-day. For ROTJ for the rivets on the shoulders, this is why it is a case where we start with making it optional for those who want to do it, and would only make it mandatory if for instance we only find one person without them. As noted, we do move quickly on FISD mainly as we have a very mature and seasoned team in place. I was reading chatter over at one detachment where most staff were pretty new and had little idea as to the CRL process, and as a result they spent a lot of time churning on this. For the CRL models, we change them as we get better models is really all there is to it. As for text vs. pictures, I’ve been a GML for 10+ years and can certainly say that neither on their own is adequate. The reality is that neither can really stand on their own, and if GMLs are confused to me this is a failure of training new GMLs. Sad that some garrison's just aren't that squared away.
  10. FYI, the Legacy Era Female now has a DLT-19 as an accessory.
  11. Actually it varies by garrison. I make in person approvals when needed. Why not? They are better than photos.
  12. Thanks for putting this together - hopefully we'll see more people getting approved. We have a maker, we have a CRL. There are more FOTK's than ROTJ and maybe soon even ESB. R1's should be getting plentiful too.
  13. FYI, this is posted to the 501st only area at: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44937-closing-statement-regarding-fisd-silver-coin-run-and-the-fallout-thereof/
  14. That's pretty awesome Asa
  15. Looking good! Great to see there is still life in FX
  16. Would you mind if we put this in a HOWTO or TIP? It's amazing and should be memorialized.
  17. Or Toddo. I think he is the current record holder at 34 distinct costumes, including a TD, 6 TXs, and 7 TKs. IIRC he is the record holder for most EI awards at 7. https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=14008
  18. Sorry these are taking so long to process. I'm working through the changes as soon as I can. When you guys are happy with updated language, please do post to the June CRL Updates thread so I can keep it all in one place.
  19. If you are making these for personal use, I don't really see an issue. It's not like you haven't already gotten a pair and are just using it for yourself. If you intend to sell them openly, then it's *likely* not a good thing depending on whose you use. For instance using FX or CAP as a base is not a problem as those people aren't making them anymore.
