  1. Looks like a new trailer dropped today. If you look closely, it looks like they used a handful of Black Series helmets for the piked helmets in the opening shot. Unlike in the R1TK helmets which have the assymetrical eyes (this was confirmed by Glen Dillon on his TWITTER, designer/modeler of the R1TK), the impaled helmets are 100% symmetrical, have the high brows, and the teeth have no mesh. It's also worth mentioning that the Anthology TK's now have ANH helmet's combined with their R1TK suits.
  2. This is in fact false. The shore trooper biceps have been found to contain velcro strips underneath the rear trim, just below the complex elastic string system. There are plenty of closeups of this. Same would most likely go for the stormtroopers, as they have the same undercuts (just different color) and aside from the addition of the thighs, should be no difference.
  3. That is gorgeous!!! Imagine what the rest of the armor will look like :O
  4. Just use a polish sponge to rub it in, then use any towel (I honestly prefer to use an old shirt) to buff it out. Just anything that has a good grip and won't slip on the surface.
  5. Beautiful work! I've found using Automotive Polishing compound works a treat when getting a smooth, reflective finish on spray paint. I actually used it for my R1TK Bucket and it truly makes it look like a production piece. Just make sure to buff it really good. This is the brand I use: Meguiars Polishing Compound. Fun fact: I got this idea from my dad (who by no means is a project guy), having a boatload of car experience. "Why don't you polish it?" "Ah dad, that won't work." "Just let me see." He rubs it super hard, then buffs it. Looks absolutely beautiful, especially after wet sanding any orange peel, just smooths it right out. "See, dad isn't so dumb after all."
  6. My apologies to everyone: I no longer have the pictures of the process. Maybe somewhere down the road I'll be able to have another crack at the BS helmet: but that'll have to wait. Currently at college and poor xD Thanks to everyone for understanding!!!

    What will these be prices as?
  8. How much will you be selling your helmets for?
  9. Im trying to follow your tutorial on how to make a black series stormtrooper helmet  more accurate. but none of the pictures are showing up.  do you still happen to have these photos?

      Unfortunately I don't. Maybe at some point in the future I'll do another bucket with proper photos. Sorry man! 

  10. I had these exact same problems with the cracks on my chest/back armor. I ultimately gave up and purchased some Inferno Squad Vac formed armor in white from WTF Factory. Excellent stuff. Fiberglass in the long run is not a fan of flexing. It's ultimately supposed to remain stiff and never budge, but this flexible fiberglass presents many cracking problems, not to mention all the right angles in the sculpt that cause this to happen more.

    What is this?

    They're the secondary straps for the thighs. If you look in the CRL thread, there's talk about it
  12. Thank you very much Pretzal Couldn't have done it without members of our Garrison
  13. This is (now TK) DS-33130, submitting my field report for a fan film we did over a month ago! EVENT: Fan film shoot in Somonauk. LOCATION: Somonauk, Illinois (near Sandwich). DATE: 5/19/2018 TIME: 10:30-3:00. LANDSCAPE/WEATHER: Woods environment on a hill, Weather was fair for most of the shoot turning sunny toward the end of the shoot. TROOPERS: Thomas Little, Thomas Durbin, and Mike Olson (don't know ID numbers xD). All Stormtroopers, but Durbin and Olson doubled as Rebels for the film. HANDLERS: Reese Parquette (TK-33130), along with a friend of Thomas Little's that came out that day to spectate. REPORT: This was all a shoot for a fan film I made, titled "Empire Falling: Twin Moons Squad," that will be released June 10th on Youtube. We completed filming all in 1 day (which is quite surprising, cause that almost never happens with film at all), and took a break for lunch halfway through. Thomas Little and Durbin brought extra TK armors for my extras to wear, but we only needed the one because the main character was using my R1TK armor. No incidents happened, nor injuries. We used a smoke bomb for one of the scenes, but it was handled safely with no accidents. Yes, that's me the director photobombing the pic below xD Below is a still from a fight scene between TK-3373 (main character) and a Rebel. This scene is a major turning point for the main character. CHARITY: This was not-for profit, and purely for fun. No money of any sort was made off of it. REPORT BY: TK-33130 (Reese Parquette), director/writer and editor of Empire Falling: Twin Moons Squad. Here's the final fan film!
