  1. 2. Weird Al Strings Attached Tour; 23 July 2019 Afterwards:
  2. Sorry, this is just one of those little things that bothers me. Could someone please rename this forum: Episode XIX Stormtrooper There's an extra "X" there (or Episodes Nine through Eighteen were so bad that they weren't even filmed, I mean worse than Holiday Special bad, and we've skipped right to Nineteen ... but I'm thinking it's the "X").
  3. 1. Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra - Return of the Jedi in Concert; 20 July 2019 No pictures from intermission yet, but I did the "mannequin" trick twice - the first was unintentional, but the second was entertaining.
  4. Starting my hopefully long list of troops as a TK: Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra - Return of the Jedi in Concert; 20 July 2019 Weird Al Strings Attached Tour; 23 July 2019
  5. I'm doing this a little backwards, posting a picture after I reported for duty, but I could only post my submission pics so many times ... I'm on the left TK91593 is on the right.
  6. TK-17032 requesting Detachment Access: https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=28380
  7. First off - I've been approved! I know - they're a little blocky. I don't know how much I can taper them and still be able to fit my hand through the wrist opening, though.
  8. I 'm already a member, so it should just be a matter of adding the TK, shouldn't it? I know - the paint on the helmet is ... well. The vocoder was overpainted by the original owner, so these pictures are after cleaning in up. All of the stickers were crooked, and the CRL didn't allow them at Centurion then, so everything was removed. So I used the Trooperbay templates for an AM helmet, which I was told this was ... Everything will get cleaned up, as best as I can, but I'll take basic approval for now.
  9. I have to admit - I originally wasn't going to do this. I finished my rebuild of this costume back in April, and with May the 4th right around the corner I went straight to submitting pictures to my GMLs. But I'm still waiting to hear back from them (not a word, not a peep, not even a "fix your bicep hooks!"), so I guess I can still be considered for Pre-Approval Review. So: 1. Gary Sackett 2. Garrison Excelsior / Nickel City Squad 3. Armor maker: AM 4. Helmet maker: AM? (original owner was unsure) 5. Cloth belt maker: Imperial Issue 6. Neck seal maker: Darman 7. Boot maker: TK Boots 8. Blaster maker (if applicable): still being assembled 10. Holster: Darman 11. Height: 5'11" 12. weight: 200 lbs 13. TK type: ANH Stunt 14. Name(s) of any Trooper(s) who significantly helped with your build - none in person, but I would like to thank everyone who commented on my re-build thread.
  10. For example, I'm ID-17032 and TS-17032. I'm waiting on TK-17032 (pictures submitted). And I'm already planning CX-17032.
  11. The wrists are just the right size to slip my hands through, and that's after I removed the return edges. I sent our GMLs pictures with the biceps lowered about a week ago - I haven't heard from either of them yet.
  12. Welcome from just across the Lake in Buffalo-Niagara.
  13. I ... I think I might be done. I should redo the bicep straps, and I need to re-glue a couple of magnets, and there's a couple of things I want to fiddle with in the helmet ... But ... I didn't take all the photos wanted for a Pre-Approval thread, but here are the "basic" five:
  14. I originally thought about using velcro for the shins, but I decided on a method similar to James': Except that I'm using these: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Magcraft-Rare-Earth-1-2-in-x-1-2-in-x-1-8-in-Block-Magnet-10-Pack-NSN0911/204691493 I had used a double pair of regular bar magnets as a temporary measure for the right shin upper closure. There are now two pairs of rare earth magnets in each shin. I'm currently working on shaping the belt and on fixing that crack ...
  15. Wow, I haven't updated this in a while ... So the good news is that I thought that I had everything ready for my Pre-Approval thread/submission pics on Saturday night. Then the right shin kept popping open, the left end of the belt popped off, and ... well, you'll see below. Almost there, stay on target ...
