  1. Any plans yet for strapping, gaskets, etc?
  2. Please keep us posted on this! Very interested in doing this as well since I've been trooping in my 3D printed shoretrooper armor for over a year with no issues.
  3. Good luck, can't wait to see your progress!
  4. I did, yeah. Used the Rustoleum Primer which also bonds to plastic, worked okay. Be sure to rub the blasters down with mineral spirits first otherwise the paint will never fully cure.
  5. Who can design it? I'll buy a few.
  6. From a troop this weekend. People are loving it! I agree a Jedha Patrol patch would be ACE!
  7. Been trooping in my pack quite a bit lately, loving it and getting lots of thumbs up from other troopers!
  8. Thanks guys! I have K-2SO and Finn FN-2187 Big-Figs on my desk now ready to get rocking and rolling this weekend.
  9. Going to take more/better photso tomorrow and I'll be starting on the Finn customization soon!
  10. And here's the 6" Black Series figure for scale. This thing is massive!
  11. Hey guys! In the first of many planned custom figure makeovers, here's the Jakks Pacific 18" 'Big-Fig' Death Trooper! It was purchased from Target for $20 and reposed, repainted and set on a custom made base. The setting was based on Krennic's trip to see Galen Erso at the start of Rogue One, with his trooper attachment. I didn't take as many photos as I would've liked to along the way but here are a few that I happened to snap. Next in the pipeline is FN-2187 (Finn) during the attack on Jakku in Force Awakens, which will be done using this figure. My inspiration: Out of the box. Boring pose, soft details, just kind of meh. Great sculpt/detail though! A few hours, a dremel, some super glue, bondo and epoxy putty later, it's reposed! I wanted him to be standing ready, scanning the environment. Primer! Most of the painting detail done. Gloss for the armor, satin for the undersuit and other details. Weathering on the gun. And here's the final with the grassy base, including stormtrooper doll made from epoxy putty. The base was cut on a CNC out of MDF, dirt and wood glue were combined to create the surface texture and then brown plastidip spray paint was used to coat it and lock it all in. Finished with some black and dark brown washes and then drilled holes and stuck in the artificial grass reeds which were purchased from Michaels. I shoved them all the way through the base until they were at the right height and then cut them flush on the underside with a dremel. And here are the "product" shots! Look forward to your thoughts!
  12. Well done! Hard to tell from your photos but is your roll black or dark green? Think it's more of a drab/olive/dirt green in the film used version. Here's mine, which I think is currently a little too green and could afford to be a little more towards the khaki/brown shade.
  13. I actually used a $10 rod from my local Wal-Mart. Just made sure to get the right diameter. It was actually red, painted it black w/ the red rings. Visually pretty much indistinguishable and if I break it, another one is only $10.
  14. A little more weathering to do and have to add the antenna and hook greebly but otherwise done!
  15. Love seeing fellow RT-Mod troopers. Best of luck with your build and reach out if you have any questions!
  16. Awesome work so far! Soak this all up, you'll look back on it nostalgically before long.
  17. I think you're right, Colin. They played a much smaller part in the film than most people were expecting I think. We should probably keep this thread on topic though.
  18. Paul, I thought it had already been decided that Pathfinders would be receiving the Shoretrooper?
  19. They actually had a grey top with a very similar pattern, I'd recommend going and browsing your local Target!
