  1. Hello, and welcome! There's a lot more that goes into the armor than you may think, but don't let it overwhelm you. We all managed to do it, so you can to. And trust me, if you want to wear the armor then you will want to join the 501st. Not only is it free to join, with your approvable armor, but you get to connect with others with the same interest and meet up with your local troopers to attend events, talk all things star wars, and have a great time in general. Not to mention a chance to buy the 501st member only merch So enjoy your stay and ask any questions you may have

    I agree that you should be fine for basic approval. But to give the armor an overall better look, try adjusting your straps to bring your forearms and thighs up a bit. Good luck on your TK approval

    Hello from another New Member

    Welcome! Lots of information and helpful folks here to get you in your shiny white plastic. Have fun and good luck with your build, but above all don't rush and enjoy the process. If you don't have your kit yet, then use the time waiting to read up and gather what you need.

    Hello from the North!

    Welcome! I was actually up there in Eielson only a few months ago. Good luck on your build and I'm sure you'll be able to find all the help you need here and from your local troopers. Everyone I've met so far has be more than happy to assist and share their knowledge. You'll be trooping in no time.

    Hoosier Trooper-to-Be (hopefully)

    Welcome aboard! Lots of information here to learn and research as you save and figure the armor you want, whether to build or have built for you, etc.. In the meantime you should try and see if you have any local garrison members near you, or near your location while in college, so you can help on their troops in your free time and see what it's all about first hand. Also don't let lack of space worry you. I re-fit some of my armor pieces and made all the changes needed to get Centurion, all within my small military dorm room. haha

    My Brown Box Came!

    Congrats! and best of luck on the approval process. Hopefully the EI and Centurion is in your sights. Lots of good information on the approval posts showing all the specific details and how the overall fit should look like. It looks like you are off to a great start already! Just need to secure the drop boxes a bit.

    Aren't you a little..tall.. to be a stormtrooper? Welcome and good luck on your future build. I'm sure there are armor suppliers who cater to the larger trooper. But who says you have to pick just one? Can always go for trooper and a sith as well. Vader/Kylo will always be the highlight of any troop, so definitely worth looking into if it's something you want to do, especially if you're local garrison doesn't have one.

    Thanks! And yeah it was a great time for sure. Last year I almost passed out from the heat and from being new to wearing the armor. haha This year was a lot better and I outlasted the others until we took a lunch break.
