  1. Does it count if I am only wearing my armor in pieces and with masking tape at this point Just getting back to my build after what seems like an eternity.
  2. Well, time to dust off this thread and get my build back on track. It has been way too long. I spent the weekend fixing countless broken Photobucket image links here, Carolinagarrison.net and Bikerscout.net for both mine and my son's threads. What a mess, fortunately I had backups of everything. I created an account on imgur and moved everything there. Anyway, I am really hoping to get both mine and my son's builds done by Dragoncon this year. I am looking forward to getting back into the build and I am sure I will have lots of questions over the next 6 months
  3. You can click the "report item" link and chose the copyright and trademark option, then counterfeit item or authenticity disclaimer and finally counterfeit, fake or replica item. Then it will give you a text box where you can type a brief description.
  4. Would also help to see how it looks on you as how it fits you is just as critical as the details of how it is assembled....
  5. I would definitely second the suggestion to head over to the forums at BSN.... http://bikerscout.net/ My son is building a Scout using Studio Creations armor and we have been very happy with it... http://studiocreations.com/howto/bikerscout/bike_armorforsale.html We commissioned the soft parts from Gabe at Max's Sci-Fi Creations, great work... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Maxs-Sci-fi-Creation-Shop/1651285501763603 Here is my son's build thread from our Garrison... http://www.carolinagarrison.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7832&hilit=build.... Hope that helps but again, head on over to BSN... Bob
  6. Going to be driving down with the family. Trying to decide whether to brave parking at the Convention Center or arrange for transportation to and from with my gear. My thinking is it will be easier to deal with my gear if I bring my own vehicle but I have no idea how the parking situation will be. Any input or suggestions? We could not get a hotel close to the convention center, we are staying over by Disney Springs... Thanks Bob
  7. I was curious about the differences in the armor (plastic) itself between the standard and premium kit. They said that the premium is all vac formed whereas in the standard kit some of the pieces are molded (their words)? Really torn between going for the premium kit over the standard kit but having a hard time justifying almost 4 times the cost. Would be interested in input from those with way more experience with these kits than I... Thanks Bob
  8. I wouldn't use a blade off the bat, try to separate it with some dental floss or fishing line first... Just a thought. I haven' tried that myself but my thought is that it shouldn't do any damage. If that doesn't work you may have to get a bit more aggressive...
  9. Have you already purchased the Under Armor stuff? If not, here is what I found... The logos are minimal and should be easily concealed with black marker. With shipping they were $36. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006SRT17W?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006SRT1WC?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00 Thanks Bob
  10. The description of the auction says it is an unfinished ATA kit. ATA is a known and vetted maker. Provided all the parts are there and nothing has been damaged it should be fine...
  11. Tickets go on sale tomorrow but they have released pricing for Orlando... http://www.starwarscelebration.com/Orlando/Buy-Tickets/
  12. Do a search on the name listed in the article, he is a member of the forums here. I don't see any indication though that he actually made it into the 501st...
  13. I lived in Orlando and the areas around it for most of my life. I am not even going to try and stay close to the convention center. We will be going for all four days and will likely stay more towards East Orlando, should be far less expensive.
  14. How long did it take for them to sell out last year? I will need 4 4-day passes but will have to spread the purchases out over a few months.
