  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. FYI, the Legacy Era Female now has a DLT-19 as an accessory.
  4. Actually it varies by garrison. I make in person approvals when needed. Why not? They are better than photos.
  5. 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.
  6. 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/
  7. Looking good! Great to see there is still life in FX
  8. Would you mind if we put this in a HOWTO or TIP? It's amazing and should be memorialized.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Just remember that awards does not mean you have to troop that way. For instance you can have rubber gloves/latex hand guards for your EI/Centurion and troops were you want ultimate accuracy, but then troop with nomex gloves and plastic hand guards the other 90% of the time for comfort. Once you get a EI/Centurion award, how you troop is 100% up to you.
  13. FYI, I'll be updating the CRL language to have these changes at L3 first. As we refine them and standard the part we can push them to L2 and then L1 as needed. Sound OK? We could really use some good pix that everyone agrees to are the 'best' for the CRL.
  14. April's is here: What is on the table: TKC, ICN, * Clarify overlap on thighs/biceps for construction like we do with other kits TFA * change chest to: "The chestplate is fixed to the backplate-part of the yokepiece under the arm. The chestplate overlaps the backplate." ICN * Update bicep detail to include updated paint detail from April thread ANH TK L2 -> butt plate snaps shall not be painted, ab: lower snaps not painted, upper right ab snap not painted ROTJ [DONE!] Restore missing back plate Overlap construction is no longer mentioned and neither is the sniper knee rivets R1 Update holster language to allow non-leather per thread and also specify silver tip
  15. For this, I can update the text but if there is a good CRL model out there (Centurion), who is willing to supply photos, we can update the CRL. Recall at the time it was our only ICN and not all are L3 at the time. Heck, we didn't even have L3 at the time.
  16. The TFA CRL clearly shows a heel, though it's not overly pronounced. http://databank.501st.com/databank/File:TK_phasma_boots.png So I think what we are trying to say is a small heel is fine, just not something that is overly big. We're open to other wording. As for TLJ, have we seen if the boots are the same as TFA or are they black FOTK? It would be great to get an answer on this.
  17. HI Sebastian, Yes, you can call it anything that you want. The only requirements from a branding standpoint is that you don't use any 501st of FISD branding. Otherwise what you call it it entirely up to you. Hope this helps, Paul
  18. Well, April has gone to June. One update I can provide is that the FN-2187 CRL is nearly done. The only hold-up is getting better photos than what were provided. The CRL model to be and the LMOs are on it - hope to have it this week but it's looking like it will be next week as they want it to be perfect before launching.
