  1. This is getting a little messy in the thread. These aren’t the Anthology tk’s, they’re for Disney Parks. They use them for premieres, including the premiere of R1. cant use these in the CRL lol!
  2. Better shots of the holster released today. It looks like they aren't riveted, but rather are the loop-on holsters.
  3. To further add fuel to the fire, here's a BTS pic from the Imperial HQ in Solo. Notice to the far right is another E22 leaning against a crystal patrol backpack. If I recall, no shoretroopers are in this scene in the film.
  4. I would like to propose the following OPTIONAL blaster for the CRL: Since this is the same trooper used for both The Mandalorian and Solo, I believe there should be some optional accessories from those that can be chosen from as well. Shown here are stormtroopers in the Mandalorian armed with E-22B blasters, typically used more for Shoretroopers, but as you can see TK's have them as well. Also of note is this Hot Toys commander with the same blaster: I propose we use the blaster requirements from the Shoretrooper CRL, and simply copy and paste for now unless a clearer distinction is found.
  5. Curiosity question: The ANH blasters had a visible recoil spring in the slide channel, whereas the R1 blasters had a simpler designed spring. It appeared as more of a curved steel piece. Now that being said, the R1 blasters don't actually have that since they're injection molded rubber/or resin, but the CRL allows for flexibility on the types of E11 base used. Am I correct in stating that if an E11 had the recoil spring present from ANH, that it'd be allowed? Or is that more of a grey area to venture to? The spring isn't mentioned in there, and considering we allow the Airsoft spring to be present on a prop with a non-hallowed out slide groove, then I'd say it'd be at least a possibility?
  6. Wait, I know they did that on the Mandalorian, but they got 501st members for Kenobi as well???
  7. Ah, they're actually using Rogue One/Anthology TK's, we have a CRL for them already But yess! I've been looking for an excuse to carry a holster, now I do
  8. Also, either they have holsters now, or the riot baton from R1 and Battlefront II has returned...
  9. I couldn't help but spot a muddy Anthology trooper...
  10. That's absolutely FANTASTIC news!!! Super congratz, and here's to a LONG future of trooping
  11. From one BS modder to another (that didn't sound right...), "we will watch your [thread] with great interest."
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
