    Food for thought

    If this logic keeps being followed, you are effectively saying if I physically steal your armor at a troop it doesn't matter because it is all LFL's property any way.. In order to have a productive discussion about recasting, you have to first realize EVERYONE who has access to this thread is guilty of theft of IP, and take that out of the equation. Kudos to Paul for taking a stance and doing what was right.
  2. "Also, some people kind of opt out of the community and lose the protection of the community. " ..what community are you speaking of?
  3. ..sorry..forgot I was on a 501st board for a sec.my bad
  4. ..my head hurts...I guess this somewhat applies to the ATA and the PT stuff... so..wait.. re-cast TE = good, screw that guy! re-cast GINO= good, double screw that guy! re-cast TE2= hold up..now you crossed a line!! ..getting permission to cast AFTER you already re-cast something? WTF? So I can go shoplift a TV and then go pay for it later and it's all good? Cool! ..I used to be pissed at all the Vader secrets..seeing what a mess the trooperworld is makes me glad Vader is so secret..I guess it boils down to TE double dipping and muddying the waters so much it is such a mess to figure out it becomes a free for all... and.. Wal-Mart sucks: http://www.walmartmovie.com/
  5. Imperial Surplus ( Kevin W) ANHV2 ( or 3 now) is EXACTLY what you are describing....been done very well already..
  6. Well put Jez!! I would like to think that would show some of the "it's a Lucas's stuff anyway!" re-cast supporters what the real problem with recasting is..but I doubt it. TK-4510 I couldn't agree more, but I don't think it's going to happen..to many want to 'hook up my bros!" witch cheap armor/helmets..and that means taking the easy way out and recasting.and the 501st will continue to turn a blind eye..
  7. Three that I can think of off the top of my head ( TM/TD/SL) And the reason they are rare is right here in this thread...if anyone wonders why there are so many secrets in Vaderland...the lessons learned by the mess that the TK has become leaves anyone who wants to offer something screen derived to only offer them a few trusted people ( for the most part..as new helmets surface, what once was regarded as desirable falls a few notches and can be obtained more easily)....the minute you decide a FX suit and helmet isn't accurate enough it no longer is about the kids/501st/trooping..it's about the props..

  12. Well.... and..... then there you go....
  13. Here is a old post of mine on the 501st main board..I tried just about every suggestion mentioned above...this is the only thing that worked..I've got plenty of miles on it now..works great!! : I posted this over at the Sith Lords Detachment, but I figured it may be a help for all types of costumes, so heres the post : OK..I have a BIG lense fogging problem. Heres why..I wear glasses..and I basicaly have two lenses in my helmet, the lightly tinted amber buble lenses on the outside, and a set of dark flat lenses cut from a face shield on the inside of the bubble lenses to hide my eyes. So in total thats THREE lenses I have to keep fog free. On my last troop my lenses would fog instantly and not clear up no matter how I tried to control my breathing ( I was in the suit for 6hrs, though) ..I had two fans in my helmet that day, one in the chin vent blowing out, and one in the top of the mask blowing down onto my head. I had also used a Anti-Fog spray...didn't work at all.. I have been researching and experimenting with diferent fan positions and anti- fog stuff like crazy, and I think I may have found something that may work. In all of my searching I came across and ordered this: http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/Respro...sk--502324.html basicly what the Rspro Foggy Mask is is a piece of neoprene that is formed to your face. It mounts in your helmet with velcro and directs your hot breath down away from your feild of vision. I had to cut a bit of the bottom away..it is designed for a motorcycle helmet with alot of room around the neck area. What it is doing now is isolating the hot breath down and out the mouth grill...I wore the mask for a while and tried to make the lenses fog by breathing extra hard ( to the point I got a little light headed )...nothing...no fog at all on any of the lenses..the Foggy mask seems comfortable and doesn't interfere with vision , breathing or my mic for the voice amp at all. ...The real test will be on the next troop...I changed my fan set up a bit and went for a slightly higher powered fan in the chin blowing out, and a much bigger fan in the top of the mask, now blowing out as a hot air exit fan.. heres a pic...it looks a bit caveman because I want to make sure everything works before I tidy it up: I'll be sure to update as I put some more "miles" on this set up...I am just really excited that I seem to have found something that will work! UPDATE:THIS IS THE BEST!!! LENSES WILL NOT FOG...YAY!
  14. Ahhhh yes...welcome to the completely inacurate world of the Tie pilot! I searched and searched for acurate cogs for my helmet..I found a set on ebay..but no one , and I mean NO ONE makes a truley accurate white printed on clear cog for Tie helmets...
  15. WOW! An accurate, troopable helmet...thats not a recast, made by someone with great skill and attention to detail, who actually delivers product when they say they will...I don't know if the TK comunity is ready for such an anomoly!!!! :) Nice lookin Tie Pilot model by the way!
