  1. Hello from sunny Arizona! The world needs more TK's so get to work trooper! Looking forward to seeing your build.
  2. I don't currently have a strap from teh Bicep to the Shoulder but I am going to put one on because I have one bicep that likes to come loose and rotate. I have the ABS hooks that the elastic hangs onto as it goes across the opening of the bicep but depending on how I move it can jump the track so to speak and then it moves around and gets wonky.
  3. Looks like I get to be the first update of the new year?! Just hit the 25 mark! Requesting update. Thank you!
  4. (24) Tucson Road Runners Star Wars Night TK W/ CDZ 4861, CDZ4877 While on routine patrol at the hockey game my partner and I discovered these two jawas conspiring to hijack the ice from the arena. Turns out they thought transporting it back to their homeworld of Tattoine in it's solid form was going to be easy.
  5. Welcome aboard Michael! Once you've made your choice on armor maker don't forget other things like a trusty blaster. Sometimes you can work on your other parts and pieces while you await BBB (Big Brown Box day). And definetly start a build thread once you get started. It's the best and fastest way to get feedback from others who've built armor on any questions you might have along the way.
  6. Welcome aboard. I agree with the crowd here. Order now and fill you're time with all the other parts, blaster, detonator, gloves, etc. Sometimes it takes a while for your kit to arrive. Once you are happy with your weight get started on the suit itself. Congrats on the weight loss so far. You're almost there.

  8. Bobby, if you're at all handy with a solder gun you can build a lot of those things for yourself. I have fans in my helmet and live in Arizona. The moment I put my bucket on my head the lenses will fog up without the fans. Problem with my fans are they are so loud I can't hardy hear anything else. So I also wear noise cancelling earbuds that are plugged into a hearing assist system I built for myself from a Vellman kit you can find online usually for less than $20. For a speaker and chatter I built a TK Talkie which has many options such as a voice changer, background loops, and the ability to play sounds that are cued from buttons. There are very good instructions and support to help you along no matter which options you decide to go with.
  9. Hi John, have you guys considered making a TK Talkie for her? It is a build it yourself unit that has a voice changer, the ability to use buttons to play pre-recorded audio if you wish, and automated TK clicks and pops etc. It is a do it yourself electronics project and fairly inexpensive. I use one in my TK and get regular comments about how good it sounds. I have made 4 of them now for my TK, Gonk, and Jawa's.
  10. As a person who was once ridiculed for telling the new boss "I built a computer over the weekend" I totally get your apprehension. But you can totally do this. It might seem a little scary at first but you have plenty of us here to help you along. All you need to do is start a build thread when you get your armor and post your progress.
  11. Hey Matt I had a similar problem getting those Ab rivets just right the first time except I was too far in . Here's a link to my build where I fixed the holes using some circular plugs and Kmans ABS Paste tutorial. My TK Build
  12. That's a great Boba. And you're hitting it all out of the park. There's never enough white amor in the field. Welcome aboard!
  13. I have it pointing down and to the right if you are looking down the barrel so let's say 5 o'clock. Maybe these pictures will help?
