  1. That's absolutely FANTASTIC news!!! Super congratz, and here's to a LONG future of trooping
  2. From one BS modder to another (that didn't sound right...), "we will watch your [thread] with great interest."
  3. What about the Battlefront II reference? As lazy as it is to use a TLJ model instead of a TFA, that means that because it's officially in the TFA timeframe, that the TLJ buckets are part of that era. And respectfully, we were never given a reference of Captain Cardinal's helmet in the official novel artwork.
  4. Technically, Lucasfilm says otherwise through their toys (which we have made CRL's dedicated to toys before). Another thing to note is while the rest of the armor on the book cover shows it's TFA, we are never shown the helmet. Also keep in mind that the EA game Battlefront II utilizes TLJ troopers in their cutscenes that takes place BEFORE TFA, thereby making TLJ TK's canon before TFA.
  5. Haha, cool. If you look at different pics in R1, it's actually real funny because the cut of the thighs varies. Some are flat-cropped, while others are like the above photo. You can especially see this in the K2-SO hallway shootout before he throws the TK's around.
  6. Closer look. Looks like the speaker ain't so hidden after all. You'll find it in the black pin-stripe along the back, but honestly it's a matt finish, so electric tape should cover that up after some filler.
  7. The photos of the BS are broken links, could you update that so we have a clearer picture (no pun intended)? From everything I'm seeing, this should be a basic L1 passable TLJ helmet with no mods. Even the tiny little line around the aerator shouldn't be an issue, but definitely for L2 and L3 it should be changed. In addition, for higher tiers I think whatever color the rest of the armor is, needs to match almost perfectly with the red on this bucket. BS helmets have a tendency of having a "off" shade to their colors (such as with the R1TK), and always make it difficult to match perfectly with the rest of the armor. So a total repaint is potentially in order. The clips? Do you mean the trap-greeblies? I'm not seeing any issues there either. I am noticing the tube stripes are NOT totally hollow. If you look at the underside photo of the BS, only 3 stripes on each side are hollow, while the rest are covered by the interior plastic shell. This I highly believe should be modded as well. However, it's probably worth mentioning that I have no idea how dark the lenses will be when they're finally shipped out, so they MAY or MAY NOT be too clear, and easy to see the wearer's eyes inside. This tends to be a huge issue with any commercial bucket, the lenses are too clear from the outside.
  8. My mistake, I swear a while back Dawn Bright made a CRL of Anakin's pj's, but from what's listed above, Count Dooku's pj CRL is the same argument. No one will wear it, at least not more than a few. https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_tyranus_tcw_sleepwear
  9. Oh I understand it's a puppet, I was speaking to the effect of the mirror solution he had for the hollow joints. I don't believe I'm part of Spec Ops anymore, but will double check that anyway. Thanks!
  10. Good question about the joints. Below is a K2-SO build where this guy talks about how he handled the hollow joints.
  11. Sooooo, I guess this means we can develop a convincing Dark Trooper CRL?.... Much in the same vein as C3-PO or R2-D2. If you wear a black undersuit it'll blend in just fine.
  12. So apparently, grey boots for TK's are a thing... Thanks Paul for the photo.
  13. Hey, I'm an OCD nut Also, looking at the thighs, I'd suggest trimming them at the top maybe 1-2 inches. Not only is this accurate, it also provides more flexibility in movement. It'll prevent it interacting with the abdomen and belt. Looking wonderful! Keep it up!
