  2. I personally won't do facebook groups, most have so many posts per day that my actual friends posts get swamped and it takes ages to find them... This forum was started to be the one stop place to get your information, research and help for all stormtrooper related gear, taking it elsewhere is fragmenting the community and making it more difficult to find the information you are looking for (a bit like illusive droids) and for what reason? Certainly not to make things easier but more likely in fact so the people who start these groups can increase their own exposure on facebook and so they can feel good about themselves and "facebook important" (similar to facebook famous but generally without the "hi guys what's going on" moronic videos... Any branching away from what is seen (quite rightly so) as the definitive stormtrooper reference source is in my opinion a step backwards... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  3. Sandy's nor shock's factor into this as they're not accountable to the rigorous standards of death star troops [emoji13] This seems to be about my way of thinking (so far but I'm fickle) Thanks for your input fellas
  4. Is your bucket abs or pvc? Abs then commercial hobby paint thinner or mineral spirit with a cotton bud, If it's pvc the acetone is fine, BUT ONLY ON PVC! the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  5. My 2 cents on the holster is this, during my military service when on patrol, exercises or anything else when we had weapons we carried them, rifles, light machine guns or as was for me back then occasionally an L2A3 Sterling sub machine gun... no holsters, and the reason is, when you have a weapon in a holster it takes time to ready it, in that time you're dead, on the death star maybe a holster was permissible but in any situation where combat is even remotely a possibility then they would be carried ready for use so holsters would be redundant and in these cases not even present... Any serious fighting force would not have holsters... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  6. I've seen a few posts around saying that the helmet looks like an efx one, maybe because they were endorsed by lucasarts and Disney now own that? Just a thought like... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  7. Anyway... --------- the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  8. So, first of all you cannot say anybody is wrong as its only an opinion and everyone is not only entitled to an opinion but no opinion can ever be wrong even if others disagree with it...Secondly, by we you mean who you don't speak for everyone [emoji38] the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  9. So it's pretty much a mixed bag then, not sure how I'll go yet as I'm waiting on replacement armour from RS... Will say clean is my gut feeling though... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  10. If this armour was the 1st it had been seen (done to this standard in anh) there wouldn't be a problem, it's nostalgia holding people back... This is how it should have looked in the beginning, clean, smooth, no visible fastenings, because if it were real the idealised is how it would be... Just a side note though, is the rectangular slot that replaces the round ab button actually a USB port for an mp3 player? And another, the cover strip on the top of the forearm isn't what it seems from what I can see, if you look at the front of the centre troopers left forearm under the 'cover strip there is no join below it, also if you look closely at the far right toppers right forearm underneath it looks to me like instead of butt joint it's actually overlapped... Maybe I'm wrong but that's how it looks to me... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  11. BF is BS so I don't play it [emoji38] well I played it for 3 days and got thoroughly bored with it, problem is I bought the digital copy so can't even trade it in [emoji30] the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  12. As you all know too well white plastic marks very very easily, so the question is what do you do about it? Do you clean and polish all marks off before a troop? Or do you leave it on to make it look used or battle damaged? the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  13. If you get a modulator too (icomm or romFX) the hiss wouldn't be noticeable anyway...I got mine from China but advertised on eBay Australia and they were £14.37 but since the referendum they're now £16.22 lol... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  14. I got to see one of these when I was at RS Prop Masters last Saturday, Rob wanted to compare it to my Aker 1505 and my eBay £15 wireless mic, all identical, but this has the added static burst (toggle switch to turn on/off) and the tk chatter (small tactile latch switch for on/off) all built into the Aker... Works pretty well, the chatter is louder than your voice but as I doubt you'd be using both at the same time it shouldn't be an issue... The mic on it paired to my reciever but we couldn't try them both together close range as my mic wasn't charged... I guess out of all the voice units you can buy this is the simplest to use as its all in one, only criticism is it's non adjustable as far as I could tell... You may want to get a right angled 3.5mm Jack converter so you can velcro the receiver to the side of the Aker instead of it being a bit awkward sticking out the top, as far as I see I would mount it in the chest sideways with the buttons pointing out for ease of access and if the receiver was in the top that wouldn't be possible, just my observation and input... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  15. If anyone wants to replace the acetate visor here is a link to what I bought... http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Centurion-Face-Screens-Visors-Shade-3P-S603-Clear-Green-14-99-Pack-Of-3-/371656171792?_trkparms=aid%253D222007%2526algo%253DSIC.MBE%2526ao%253D1%2526asc%253D20150519202351%2526meid%253D23cb2f7afdc34af0822385f39f2e6c4b%2526pid%253D100408%2526rk%253D1%2526rkt%253D5%2526sd%253D262438558950&_trksid=p2056116.c100408.m2460 The round soft tube in the bottom rim of the helmet is armaflex pipe insulation, because it's the only one I could fund that's black... As you can see it just has a piece of standard garden hose in it to make it a little more rigid... The fans seem to be sold out at the moment but if you search "4020 turbine fan" it should bring them up when they get listed again... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  16. Nobody else notice the recessed sides of the td are grey not white? the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  17. Just me that's a loud mouthed extrovert git then [emoji13] Have to be though, vice president of a motorcycle club can't be a shy wallflower... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  18. As you know I'm a truck driver, I spend all week in the truck, I need something to do in my down time and TV is out because I only watch 1 program a week lol... Saturday's (usually) I'm online when I've done my running round the shops, bank etc... not tomorrow though I'm out on a fund raiser with the Armed Forces Bikers in lockerbie... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  19. Then u should sell ur ps4 while it still has some value n take up origami lol the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  20. But even as a multi-player it sucks in comparison to most games (I don't include any version ofcod in anything as its bar far the most overrated pile of bantha doo doo that has ever been created)...Each match is just too short, at least with battlefield 3 you could make the matches last an hour each... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  21. As has been pointed out by a lot of people when it dropped it was still stronger than the euro and the dollar, now the recovery has already begun things can only get better... for us... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  22. Lol it's already started recovering so yeah good luck with that... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  23. Yeah it's got no depth to it at all, just very quick finished all too soon PvP...Destiny and dark souls III is what I'm on now... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  24. Nothing wrong with it as such, I ordered a smooth one but was given a bumpy so when I went back to have some bits trimmed Rob showed me a bucket that'd just been formed and said it was mine it just had to be put together and painted... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
