  1. Hey all, as the title says I just want to know what the measurements (width/height/depth/etc.) are of the white u trim/gasket that goes on the torso pieces so I can get the right stuff. Thanks!
  2. For those who know more about the officer uniforms, are the Disney ones up to 501st standards? Cause if they are something tells me we’re about to have a bunch of more members then.
  3. Ok, sorry for the radio silence in the last 24 hours, but here's where I am confused: Overlap construction is only allowable for kits that come with the cover strip molded in to the part. OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable): OPTIONAL Level three certification (if applicable) must be constructed using the butt joint and cover strip method. Overlap construction is not allowed Before the CRL said the complete opposite as what's stated above if i remember correctly. Now this is the biggest concern for me not because I used overlap construction, but rather butt joint method. I started the build before I knew about the CRLs and was disappointed once I saw that I could only qualify for entry level with butt joint. Now it seems that's not the case. It just seems confusing that there's a complete 180 on the crl, I'm concerned that it's just a typo or other mistake. Also: Boots Boots are above ankle height and made of white leather or leather-like material. Small U-shaped elastic sections on both sides of the ankle. Flat sole with a short heel. No buckles or laces. Jodhpur/ Chelsea-type boots or an equivalent style is acceptable. Elvis or Mariachi boots are not allowed. OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable): There is no seam present on the front of the boot. Do the boots still need to have white soles? And finally: OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable): Corners of ammo belt are cut at right angles. Not 45 degrees as in ANH/ESB This is something I also noticed that changed in the CRL, it's a little late for me on this one Also I have another question I have with the armor unrelated with crl changes. The crl states where rivets are located, but I don't know where exactly all the rivets go, the pictures don't show them very well and the descriptions don't help with exact placement. At the moment all my armor is put together and strapped with glue, so rivet placement isn't obvious to me. Thanks in advance for all the help.
  4. I’ve been working on a rotj tk for the last year, or close to it, and am finally seeing the end. Now’s the time for me to focus on al the small details and imperfections on my build to get it as accurate as possible. But it seems the CRL has changed quite a bit since I last printed it out. Not to mention the announcements mention more CRL updates to come. I’m kinda lost now when it comes to this build, what’s actually the requirements? What’s still subject to change? It feels like I’m trying to hit a moving target with the aim of a tk.
  5. I saw this video online and at about 5:36 there's a mention about some of the 501st legion being in the film! Lucky you Honestly you guys should get props for not spoiling anything, since I didn't see anything on here about any of the 501st being in it. That must've been so awesome for the troopers involved! Great work!
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-AmHZ17gWM About 15-20 seconds in there's a esb TK with his shoulder on his forearm Look on the right side when they come down the steps.
  7. Oh wow that's amazing! I can't believe someone's gotten that far already. Too bad it's not a true rotj, but your conversion really looks convincing. It really looks amazing, what did you do for the mohawk?
  8. Hey I visited Seattle 2 years ago and saw this very guy right outside the space needle.
  9. Just read an article that Columbia is selling the famous ESB crew parkas for a mere $500 each: https://www.esquire.com/style/mens-fashion/a25385258/columbia-star-wars-empire-strikes-back-crew-parka/
  10. I’m not finished with my armor yet, but I chose ROTJ because 1) I love the look of them 2) as said above they are frequently used in Merch and 3) most importantly to me, they have many variations thanks to the new video games: magma troopers, bf heavy weapons troopers/se troopers, shock troopers, rocket troopers, etc. I like that I am able to make the armor, and then customixe it to any variation of it later.
  11. Oh I feel so stupid, I didn't see the post with the link to the pack for sale. Guess theres no need to worry about 3d printing it if crooknight already has! Well if that's the case I can now say that I'll be converting my armor to it for sure!
  12. Oh wow this discussion is really catching on now, awsome!! I don't have much to share atm, but I'm in the final processes of finishing my rotj kit. Straping it together as we speak! I'm definetly considering converting it into the rocket trooper, hence why I started the discussion. I was wondering if one of those 3d printer guys would be able to make a printable file of the pack from the game files we have here (thanks for those, that's awsome) or of the other new parts too. Ill post that question in the 3D printing section soon. Also, I toatally agree with the two seperate crls, it just makes sense. I have somewhwere in my computer, a CRL document that I typed up, bits of it are on this post from earlier, If you guys would want it I could post the whole thing so everyone can look at it and change it as we go along. Really is nice to see others working on this and having an interest, everytime I'm about to work on this more I get too busy! Keep up the good work guys! (Edit) Wait is the vocoder grey? never noticed that. Is that just a lighting thing or do the game files actually have it as grey? -Eric
