  1. Congrats on the wedding Luca! Many happy returns on the day. (seriously loved all the pix from it on your insta)
  2. 11/26/22 - Carrie Tingley Foundation Festival of Trees Reindeer Romp 39th TK troop, 36th for the year CDZ-5435 - troop 14 This is my first repeat troop! The Reindeer Romp was my 2nd troop ever and my daughter's first last year. We had to come out and see the trees again. This year there were Jedi in the trees. TK-21476 and I did our best to defend the younglings from being kidnapped and indoctrinated. (yes, I went there) The Grinch was appreciative of our heroics. Anna and Elsa were ready to lend a hand in icing that band down. Vader and Juno were protecting the Hot Wheels tree from... well, from my Jawa. Gotta be realistic here. This was the biggest thief in the building. There WAS a tree behind that panda. It somehow got packed under those sparkly robes. The panda fit too. And then she stole my blaster. And the band. And the princesses. And our hearts. 11/26/22 - Koyawena-Lilly Wedding 40th TK troop, 37th for the year CDZ-5435 - troop 15 TI-50597 - troop 7 Later that same evening was a WEDDING TROOP!!! My very first. There was no way I was missing it. My wife left her bucket and did Reserve to help wrangle us troopers around. Ready to officiate. (I trust you can pick me and my daughter out by now.) Vader and the bouquet was too good not to share. The bride's escort service. She was SOOOO happy! We were a surprise and she loves TKs. She has a beautiful TK tattoo on her leg. Maybe they'll both build armor and join up soon... And after we did our duty, there was fry bread. FRESH fry bread just baking outside. Allen and I were there for it. Heck, we were all there for it. We stuffed our faces with fry bread and then got fed inside at the wedding dinner. I don't have a whole lot of wedding pix but it was seriously amazing. I will absolutely wedding troop at every given opportunity.
  3. Fantastic!!! And huge props for posting as much back info as you did. Hopefully no recasting accusations will come forth.
  4. NICE!! We have a Christmas parade coming up too and I'm working on a candy cane.

    When this one appeared from today's troop, I couldn't help myself. I had to follow Morgi's lead.
  6. 11/18/22 - Star Wars Art Con Friday Night 37th TK troop, 6th as a HWT, 34th for the year CDZ-5435 - troop 13 TI-50597 - troop 6 This was a troop to support Lucasfilm's artist Christopher Clark. It's a traveling art show that's in town for 3 days. This was the opening night. I got another family troop in, which is always the best thing in the world. We got a huge introduction from the event organizers and trooped into the twin ballrooms in style. Unlike many troops where they're forbidden, they asked for blasters at this one, so I dirtied my armor up again and hit the HWT train. These two didn't appreciate me stealing their spotlight outside the ballroom. Christopher was just a wonderful person. Happy to chat and clown around, even though he was feeling under the weather. And his art was gorgeous. He was signing and personalizing paintings at no charge for the show. In the above, the ONLY Star Trek painting in the show can be seen. My daughter (out of Jawa to the right) was watching him paint and noticed this. She called everyone over. We posed. All of the troops eventually caught on. I couldn't help but give a salute. We spent kind of a long time clowning for this one photo. The crowd loved it, as did the guy who bought the painting. And this gentleman was the new owner of the painting. I had to get a selfie with him. Too much fun. I bought several paintings myself and came home with a bunch of complementary prints. The walls of our Star Destroyer will get some new decorations soon. 11/19/22 - Peter Mayhew Foundation UNM Children's Hospital Donation Troop 38, 35 for the year, 7 as HWT This was a last minute emergency troop with vague details. Something about the Children's Hospital and the Peter Mayhew Foundation. Masks and COVID cards required, absolutely no weapons. I signed up right away. This is the kind of thing I live for. The details emerged. A truck from the Mayhew Foundation was touring around the western US, dropping boxes of toys for kids at hospitals on their route. Albuquerque was due for Saturday delivery sometime after 1pm. We helped unload boxes which we thought we'd be just handing over to the hospital staff. Nope. Our strong Imperial backs were put to work. We brought the toys all the way up to the kids ward. Delivery made. I missed every one. ( Notice the lack of backpack? Since no weapons were allowed, I elected to just leave the pack at home. And since I didn't have time between last night's troop and today's to clean my armor again... ) We each received a Peter Mayhew coin for participating in the troop! None of us had any idea this was coming at the end. It'll have a place of honor in my collection. And this little one is my very favorite part of today's troop. When I saw that she was captured by our fantastic handler, the room got dusty. See, she was VERY small and wrapped up in a blanket. Couldn't have been more than 4. She was more than a bit scared of the plastic space suits. I gave her the little finger wiggle waves and got one of my TK trading cards out of my chest pouch for her. She shyly took it with a smile. And that was it. I was then her very favorite plastic spaceman in the hospital at that point onward. She kept looking at me and waiving. I asked if I could come down and take a picture with her, which got a big nod. I knelt down next to the girl and her mom and took a selfie with the mom's camera. The little girl had such a huge smile on. It was only eclipsed by my own, hidden under my mask and bucket. It was a small moment, but... well... little tears. They can't see you cry inside the bucket. I don't know what challenges were on that little girl's shoulders, but she was happy for a few moments today. She put quite a few happy bucks in my own pocket as well. It's been a very good weekend.
  7. EPIC! I don't think this troop pic could be topped. Lovely weekend of trooping also. You're all doing so much good.
  8. Thanks!!! And whew, the 75 badge.... I hadn't thought. If the calendar is kind to me, I'll get it! Thanks Morgi!!! This next year can only get better with my newfound sitting and kneeling powers. I gotta try laying down soon. I've burned both ends of this year's candle to the best of my powers. Soon we will troop TOGETHER!!!
  9. HELL YEAH BROTHER!!! Very exciting. I've got the Jimmi R1TK kit in a box ready to build... just gotta start a thread. Will follow with great interest.
  10. 11/11/22 - Deluxe Design Re-Opening 36th TK troop, 33rd for the year, and my 1 year Trooperversary CDZ-5435 - troop 12 TI-50597 - troop 5 On Nov 13th, 2021, this was me. Shiny and fresh. Never trooped. Barely knowing the joys of wearing the white armor. 11/11/22 - here's me after 36 troops in one year. Thumbs up. Waiting in the hot sun for a ribbon cutting. A bit dirty. Far more smiles than a trooper ever deserves to have in a year. Got another one with my whole family (that's my wife bombing in the middle). Family troops are possibly my favorite thing in life. If you look carefully you'll notice I'm holding my daughter's hand. That's to keep her from stealing each and every E-11 down the line. WHO STOLE THE E-11s?!?!?!?!?! Yes, she has an arsenal under that robe. Some selfies hit different. This one really captures that ominous feel of a bunch of Imperials waiting to create some smiles. With Gus, who was there on my very first troop a year ago. One of my favorite people in the world to troop with. With the boss. That's Jeff Vader, that is. Ready to force choke and blast a whole hot dog stand. This IS the hot dog I'm looking for. Hot and tired, but ready for this dog. Note the COMFORTABLE SITTING!!!!! A billion thanks to @Morgi for sharing the dark arts of advanced TK sitting and mischief with me. What a year. Best year I've had in my 45 on this planet.
  11. Seriously incredible armor, build, and photo set. To say "Easy approval" is a huge understatement.
  12. I guess if someone waived $50k under my nose I'd be building myself a new set of armor while they walked away with my old one... but DANG. such feelings.
  13. My current fitness could be better, but I've been in great shape. Thanks for asking! We walked about 70 miles last week (no kidding) in Disneyland. My feet are begging for mercy but I'm feeling good. Gonna get back into the gym swing shortly. verrry very slowly gaining weight even, which is good. My Crohn's disease is in remission again.
  14. VERY nice work!! If I may humbly suggest, the bucket could use a few more chips in it to match the screen used trooper. Gives it more character.
