  1. Yes! Not the best time, but it is great to be in touch again my friend. And same goes for m any others. Saludos.
  2. A long time ago... I was tricked into vouching for a "new maker". I was green at the time. I bring his new helmet make here and announce it and without much waring, I was covered up in a flaming storm from many many members here, but mostly by non 501st users and some makers at the time. Even if I stated that I had nothing to do with the production or business, I was blamed for recasting. It was so intense that I swore never to comeback to the FISD (at that time Paul went all the way and "fished" me back and give it a second chance to the community). Remembering that, and seeing what is ha
  3. WOW! I remember those CDs and the big price tag they had, not to mention the NDA and politics you had to go through to even be cosidered by Matt as a suitable buyer. I do remember the day those images were released. I considered it a game changer just as the discovery of RS's Armor years later. I also remember that in the post making the images public, it was stated that they were being made public because Matt owed money or product to the poster, and after a lot of going back and forth, the owner thought that even if he would not get what was owed, that would prevent Matt from chargi
  4. Read the news on facebook... I am really sad about this. Really sad. As I wrote on facebook, even feel heartbroken. I too believe I get along with everyone in the community by not taking sides... but I do believe this is just too clear not to see as it is. As I said... sad, heartbroken. Saludos. Juan And yes... most newbies (and recent generations) cant see or understand the implications and importance of this all.
  5. Thx Paul. That sounds perfect. I guess Justus will be in a similar place as you are. And so should all of us. This was a great conversation indeed. Saludos.
  6. Very Interesting read. There is not much I think I can add, since I am one of those older TDs who didn't wanted the HWT or the SE TD on the MEPD... But things have changed. It is not 2005 anymore. We need to evolve as Justus has stated! Just one thing here that might make it easier for all of us to come together: The MEPD was born before detachments existed. It was later made into the structure of a detachment. Thats why the name and nature of it is not welcoming for other costumes. Just as the SWAT program. It was not meant to be part of the CRL. Levels of CRL did not existed when th
  7. Update. Sounds ridiculous this far... It's been 5 years since I started this build. ANOVOS armor is still boxed, and my TM replica armor is still awaiting for weathering and aging. Hope to have it finish by the end of the summer. This summer. Its been too long already. But now I need to build my daughter's WTF's sandtrooper... Hope I can manage to finish all this year. Saludos.
  8. Tony, This is just amazing! I guess you have no idea (or might have), what this pictures mean to me and many many other Sandtroopers over here. This has to be the most relevant post about the radio ever posted, going tip tip with that awesome moment when the brand and model was discovered. We have literally spent thousands and thousands of hours working, researching and just wishing to someday find one of these radios and then share the info, references, measurements and excitment with the comunity. In the past, AFIK, only two other radios like this had surfaced: one I still think was not
  9. Ciao Tony! That is just a beautiful radio! Great find!!! Probably one of the most coveted found parts in SW! And it is without a doubt, the Holly Grail for Sandtroopers! I cant help but ask, did you find it online? I have spent thousands of hours, literally, and I am sure many others have too, searching for that radio online and offline. It is too much for my OCD to think that I have not search in the right places or times... But, on the other hand, makes me happy that it ends up in the hands of someone who appreciates it. As other have said, If you ever decide to sell it, for a fair pri
  10. It's true you learn something new everyday! This is awesome! Thx for sharing Paul! Ill take this in consideration for every future build! Saludos.
  11. Thx a lot! I actually don't now for sure... It was the thinnest foam they've got on the craft store. About 2 mm thick, maybe even 1mm. Armor was quiet flexible, but also it's a bit thin. I think it would need some repairs have she wore it just one or two hours more. Thx a lot you all for the kind words!! In about 3 weeks we will be attending another Con... I guess she will be wearing it. I will post some pictures. Saludos.
  12. Thx everyone for your kind words!! I told Vale, my daughter, about all your comments and she is very happy and says thx too!! She just asked me to get her new boots for the next con. To have better pictures. Next time. LOL!! Saludos.
  13. THX Everyone for your comments and nice word!! Then the time of the Con came and went...but I finished her armor just in time and in full Sandtrooper fashion!! I added weathering and made the final adjustmente, and even tried to add a voice amp, but didnt worked due to bad wiring... But we had a blast on the con... So finally, here she is... She was in armor for a solid hour. LOL... considering she is 5yo and that the place was super crowded and hot, I consider it a real achievement! At the end, she asked me NOW we were both Sandtroopers an
