  1. This gentleman. Any leads? Apparently someone spotted him at DragonCon as well this year. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. At SWCO we saw a samurai stormtrooper. I'm curious if anyone knows where to find that kit? Or if someone can put me in touch with a samurai TK out there. Thanks! Andrew TK/TI/SL-61515 Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. I took all return off, but like I said, I've got thicker legs. I've seen some builds retain the edge. And I have in other places on the Armor. But thats a sensitive area! Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  4. You're going to want to trim the return edge on the top flange. That's going to dig in and bite pretty good. [emoji33] make sure you're measuring the circumference of your thighs before removing too much material. I may rework mine in the rear by increasing the thickness of the cover strip (I've got thicker legs). And, as always... Measure twice, cut once, and use a straight edge.

  5. Small group, but we had a lot of fun. [emoji16] Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  6. First Troop! At a SC Stingrays Hockey game, with jersey auction/raffle proceeds going to Charleston Habitat for Humanity. What a blast. We got to accompany the ceremonial Puck drop, and walk the mezzanine. Crazy seeing people from work, and the public, and their general reactions to the armor. Loved every minute of it. Aside from a couple of armor bites on the calves, it trooped perfectly. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  7. Correct. The pull on the WTF center buttons is quite deep. Grinding down and adding a backer plate is the way to go. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  8. #shimlife Welcome to the club. Lol Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  9. Wow, that FOTK armor is sharp. Congratulations! Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  10. Magni is correct. Keep the forward cover strip around 20mm, or whatever works, then you use the aft strip to fit your body better. I went with 24/22mm for my return flange and cover strips after taking all my measurements (twice or thrice). Don't despair, a WTF is totally doable for 6' 194lbs. I'm in that range as well.
