  1. Hi, welcome to the FISD! If you’re interested in becoming a Stormtrooper the your in the right place. I’d also advise you head over to the UK Garrison as well and sign up there too. We have a mentor program which will guide you to a clearable suit. There’s a few little bits the UK is a bit different for process wise so it pays to be there from the start. Chris.
  2. I saw them post about a week ago of some pictures of some rough blocks I assume were to be machined. https://www.facebook.com/BackStageProps/photos/a.1008718475923599/1974083752720395/?type=3&theater Seems to suggest they found a CNC to use?
  3. John did a final run of 100 RomFx last year. I think there are still some left but I couldn’t tell you how many.
  4. Have you signed up over at the UK Garrison? http://ukgarrison.co.uk/forum Once you have an account post a Work In Progress (WIP) in the armoury section and the armoury team will guide you to a clearable costume. They are really good at what they do and have all build and seen loads of different builds so will know exactly what needs doing.
  5. It's not so much to we accept icloud as does iCloud accept us. I'm not on the web team so not privy to how the emails stuff is setup but if the email isn't just perfect, email providers may thing it's spam and so just not deliver them.
  6. I 100% recommend getting the special pliers for the snaps of you can. Makes doing a snap a 5 second job.
  7. The only wire I run is for my head set but I wear that on my head, not attached to the helmet, with the wire running up the neck seal. I also have a fan system mounted inside the helmet but the battery is mounted inside the front between the mic tips. It's just a case of putting the helmet on, no wires to mess with.
  8. Could be RS but the forehead looks too smooth, might just be the lighting though.
  9. Where about's are you? We may be able to guide you a bit better if we know where in the world you are.
  10. I take it he's not receiving the confirmation emails? For some reason emails are starting to get caught in spam filters. There's a couple of options: they can explicitly white list @whitearmor.net or pm me with the user name and email they used and I can go look in the back end. For what it's worth it's probably a good idea to white list whitearmor anyway.
  11. I can't recommend that for a first build. It will work, but if you get it it wrong at all you'll need to order new parts. It works by melting the plastic so when they dry out again they are literally fused into 1 single piece. It's incredibly strong, but also incredibly unforgiving.
  12. I'd say I spent maybe £50 on tools at most, and that was mostly for specialist bits. Okay I already had basic stuff but you can build a whole TK with a Stanley knife, metal ruler, lexan scissors, some cheap files, a drill and sand paper. I often see these huge lists of tools you "need", and you really don't. Okay it might take a little longer but you're also far less likely to make a huge mistake with a pair of lexan scissors than with a dremel.
  13. It is an old post but it's maintained and updated as often as is needed to keep info up to date.
  14. Hero's Of The Empire is now out and available for viewing on Amazon. Just search on amazon, I can't find a global link that's not my affiliate and I don't want to be 'that guy'. Sadly it's not been included in the prime package so if you want to watch you'll either need to rent it or purchase it. Looks like these are the usual standard Amazon digital fees, so they will be what ever is normal in your country.
  15. I'm going to hazard a guess the odd shape one would fall under "mistakes, errors and breakages". Whilst they do exist the 501st trooper is a somewhat idealised average of all of them. Whilst there is no specific rule against it I believe GMLs should also pay heed to the images which shows the standard ANH holster shape. The promo trooper is covered by the hero CRL, one is cleared in the UKG for sure. http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_anh_hero You would need the SR-14R for the SR-14R holster though.
  16. Just leave them. Standard boots a a bit TOO white IMO. A bit of natural weathering tones them down a bit.
  17. Awesome place to troop, would love a wonder round there. Whilst I'm not a vet with PTSD I do struggle with crowds and busy environments, but the armour makes most of that go away. Okay I've had a few moments but the spotters did their job and got me out of there. The armour isn't just a costume, it's a whole new world that many of us other wise would not be able to join.
  18. For the most part that looks pretty okay. A quick look shows naff gaskets, TD needs some more black, overlapping shoulder isn't going to fly. No idea if the seams will work or not, look at the forearm for example. Will they need filling? Helmet looks nice like always though. BE fun seeing these come in and what is needed to get them through. ps: Some of the PS cutting out on that looks rather amateur hour too. Chinese new year starts next week, IIRC. So I read that as "we've got a crap ton of these to make and we've barely made a dent. Oh and the factory will close for a week or so for Chinese new year which screws up loads of stuff coming out of china for weeks after that". I don't know what the production is like but I expect this to take months rather than the 4-6ish weeks it took for OT.
  19. That’s more than game of thrones started on, and more than the Blackwater Bay season cost. Whilst not as crazy money like GOT has gotten to it’s atill not exactly pocket change.
  20. Doesn’t look like the new formula has been released yet. The authorised dealers still don’t have anything in stock.
  21. I expect that's why you were refereed to EA. Knowing what you wanted to contact them about might help.
  22. Welcome to the FISD. If your mando is anything to go by your TK should be ace! See you at the troops!
