  1. Congrats on your 10th!! And a great troop for it too!
  2. Words do not begin to describe how well this turned out or how much I appreciate you knocking my blaster out too! I already enjoyed having this blaster on display when I'm not trooping with it, this just took it to the next level all around. Thank you Adam!!
  3. Welcome Jonathan! Feel free to connect with the Georgia Garrison on our forums at https://www.ga501st.com/ or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ga501st. We have a very awesome group full of helpful folks who can get you going in the right direction. If a TK build is what you're aiming for, these WhiteArmor forums are an amazing resource and a lot of us GA folks are pretty active here.
  4. Troop #: 25 Date: February 19, 2022 Location: Alpharetta, GA Event: Make A Wish Trip Wish Reveal Event Charity: Make A Wish I have neglected to officially troop my TK in some time, so today it made it back out for my 25th TK troop for a Make A Wish trip reveal for a young man getting to go to the new Galactic Starcruiser hotel. Not a large or long troop by any means but a lot of happy kids and parents to greet and take pictures with.
  5. Looks amazing! Hope you're ready for Round 2!
  6. Keep it up Adam! I'll send you mine when you're done.
  7. That sight is broken on my QD E-11, so I'm definitely going to look into this as well. Thanks @justjoseph63 & @T-Jay!!
  8. Finally getting to start one of these for myself! 1. Adam aka @revlimiter Flew from Atlanta to Albuquerque for 4 fun-filled days of complete armor assembly & guidance for EIB/Centurion EIB Approved #1037
  9. Poor me? Heck no, these are awesome! Trying to think of some of my own or little additions to spice these up was a ton of fun!
  10. Most logos will come off with a bit of acetone and careful work with a rag, I did that on mine and suffered no discoloration of the shirt or pants. I use the DrSkin brand off Amazon. Shirt: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N6WZW3W/ Pants: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RMG3020/ The X pattern stitching on the side of the pants is hidden by the thigh armor. Since I use a thigh garter belt setup, it covers the writing on the waistband (which doesn't come off). Even if you're not using a belt it's not a problem, it's hidden under the armor.
  11. I'm now certain I've created a monster.
  12. Albuquerque was a blast! What I got to see of it anyway... Seriously though, I feel like we built an amazing set of armor in the short time that we had and I was super excited that you got to suit up in a mostly finished state before I left. Great feeling seeing it on you and your excitement as a result. Can't wait to see you get your first 501st approval and then move on to EIB & Centurion!
  13. I wonder if the plaintiffs who settled were paid, because apparently the lawyers representing Anovos weren't.
  14. Very nice design and execution! Always love seeing new techniques to deal with the shins. I hope this doesn't come across as trying to detract from your method, but I feel it's worthwhile to note that in Cricket's method the magnets attached to the outer cover strip snap down into a matched recess inside the leg armor/inner cover strip, so any side to side movement of the magnets isn't possible which maintains their pole/pole strength. Image for clarity:
  15. Along with other members of the Georgia Garrison, I participated in the filming of a very high quality Star Wars fan film called Scorekeeper. It was officially released today. Check it out on YouTube and enjoy!
  16. I see you got everything in there! Good job, looks great!
  17. Not even a little offended! I can't claim credit for blacking out the inside, the inspiration came from many threads here. And stuffing all of the electronics inside just took some time until I found the method that fit around my head, hope it works for you too! Yes, shortening is a good idea IMO, especially if you're screws/bolts are long, you risk scratching your face. If you look at my second picture you'll see I shortened the exposed screw to just above the nut, I left a little length on it just so I'd have an easier time getting the nut threaded with everything else in place.
  18. Not at all. Unless you have visible wires hanging out or something like that, then you'd likely be asked to clean those up. And as far as the audio system goes, it's EIB/Centurion ready out of the box as the Hovi-MIX tips meet the Level 2 requirements.
  19. Troop #: 24 Date: February 20, 2020 Location: Hilton Atlanta Airport Hotel Event: Bert's Big Adventure Sendoff Event Charity: Bert's Big Adventure I was able to do this event last year and was excited to be able to participate again this year. Another cold day in the hangar for the sendoff portion but still a very rewarding experience. Bert's Big Adventure is a huge charity in the Atlanta area, their big event each year is to send children (and their families) who have chronic and terminal illnesses to Walt Disney World for five days, all expenses paid. They also have numerous other events throughout the year. Jimmy wants to be a Stormtrooper when he grows up, so Cricket's son graciously donated his armor to Jimmy, seen here in a test fitting/photo op: All of the costuming volunteers: With the boss: Rebels snuck into our Imperial group shot:
