  1. Time for a new project! I've always liked the look of the SE-14R so I decided it was time to make one of my own. I also wanted something with lights and sounds, as my Hyperfirm has none, but didn't want to put a lot of time or effort into doing so. I started of by printing this blaster: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2274864 I've had to modify a few parts to allow for adding electronics. I bought a cheap blaster from the dollar store that I plan to transplant into this blaster: After opening it up (and tossing the housing) I am left with a speaker, an LED diode and a battery pack (which I cut out of the plastic handle): Now that I knew what I had to work with, it's time to start modifying the print files. First I had to make room for batteries in the magazine receiver, which was easily accomplished with a dremel and some Apoxie Sculpt: I did the same to the frame, so I can wire in the circuit board and a toggle switch for the trigger (not pictured, sorry!). The LED diode will sit at the end of the barrel (may see if I can easily swap in a larger/brighter one without having to redo everything - I'm going for a no-frills, budget approach to lights and sound!), and I figured I would put the speaker at the other end. To do so, the end cap must be modified to make room for the speaker. It will also need a grille for sound to escape: I plan on covering the opening with speaker cloth, but even so, I couldn't help myself. Another thing I had to do was print the barrel in two parts and glue them together (used a piece of plastic rod to reinforce the joint): I also picked up the correct scope off of eBay for $8 (also pictured is some other stuff, new build thread coming soon!): Hoping to get the new end cap printed up tonight, figure out where I need to drill holes in the barrel/frame for wires, and then I should be good-to-go with sanding/filling/priming.
  2. I don’t know, but the original files of the one I used were taken down.

    Same here - lots of clamps and magnets.
  5. Looks a little clone-y.
  6. Looks like a SW fan film is having success with it making the rounds on tech blogs etc: https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/13/18180851/star-wars-short-fan-film-squad-leader-td-73028-soliloquy-shakespeare-maxime-claude-lecuyer Starring one of our own dirty TD brothers no less. Congrats!
  7. I can view it just fine.

    Sooner, rather than later...

    If you decide to go FO that would be fantastic, there are a few of us here in Reno hoping to do the same (have been waiting several years for Anovos!).

    Those gaskets though.

    Commander Pyre Build

    But if that is the only reference outside of the cartoon, then what? E.g. there wouldn’t be a screen accurate version.

    Commander Pyre Build

    If they do indeed have a version of him at the parks I think that would be an acceptable basis for a CRL, IMO.

    Mixing Armors

    None of them are an exact match. ATA is probably close enough, but it is whiter than Anovos, most noticeable in direct sunlight.
  14. TM and RS are close in color, slightly darker than Anovos but should match ‘good enough’.

    Hello from another New Member

    You can do ANH-S/Hero/ESB/HWT and share most of the parts really. Just need multiple belts/helmets/blasters and removable weathering for HWT Centurion.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    If they were actually shipping and offered at the original Tier 1 price I'd consider buying a backup for spare parts etc. but not at $800+.

    Stormtrooper Oddities - What have you noticed?

    How could we forget the “airline dinner tray TK” from Solo?

    Wanting to build ANH HERO Luke Skywalker Stormtrooper

    If you are looking for an accurate pre-built Luke Hero suit Troopermaster is the only vendor I’d recommend. He knows his stuff.
