  1. No, unfortunately I haven't been able to find anyone who has figured this out. I've tried just about every setting I can think of and the moment the bucket goes on, it's echo-y and sounds muffled. Fine with it off. Wish I knew what to do.
  2. Yup, a few years ago I received a "flag" on my account and I was effectively unable to use it. Calling customer service was no help as the service rep--bless her heart--clearly didn't understand English too well, and when I asked for an explanation, or when the account would be opened again, the only response I'd get would be a short pause followed by "...you have flag on account" "Yes, I understand that. I would like to know why there's a flag on my account." "...you have flag on account." So I just hung up and waited a few days. PayPal sucks but it's
  3. Thanks! I already know for sure we're good to go for this one since it's a "for-fun" event as the GCO says. I think I might just bite on it, since it's so low in price.
  4. There is very large Star Wars event coming up in Joliet, Illinois, that I'm told is akin to something like a mini-Celebration. My wife's 181st TIE should be complete by then, and I thought it would be fun to troop with her wearing a black+red pauldron, kind of as a way to match. I found this one on eBay, which seems deceptively affordable: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stormtrooper-Armour-Costume-Sandtrooper-nice-quality-Red-pauldron-/163564892166?oid=163470567488 The seller has a variety of trooper gear available and great feedback. How does the pauldron look?
  5. So, this is quite a bit different than I envisioned. Also, I know I missed some things, read on and I'll explain At first this was going to be a more dynamic, action-pose type of thing...it looked completely different. But I decided to pare it down a bit. Full disclosure: I'm not an expert on embroidery or patch design; my strength is in designing shirts as you can probably tell So I don't even know if this will work, but it's at least done 100% in vector format, so digitizing it shouldn't be too big an issue if it comes to it. It can be rearranged quite a bit, at any rate.
  6. A tall TK in my garrison just heatgunned some ABS that sit under the canvas belt. You can't even tell and it looks great.
  7. I need some advice on my voice setup. As of yet, I have never had a successful troop with my voice sounding correct. Right now, I'm using the TrooperTalk setup. That is, the iPhone app, with an Aker amp and headset mic connected with a splitter. Actually, I've perfected the setup: I found the perfect speaker & mic placement, app settings, etc. It sounds fantastic...until I put the bucket on. With the bucket on, I start getting loud squawking, and a bad mechanical-sounding echo. I've tried different placements, I've tried going directly into the amp (to see if the ap
  8. Hey man! Have you joined the Great Lakes Garrison forum yet? All of us mitten state people are there. www.greatlakesgarrison.com
  9. If one of the vetted armor vendors is out of your price range, I would recommend waiting and saving up. And as a rule: ALWAYS BUILD IT YOURSELF! No matter how lacking in ability you may think you are, the honest truth is that you're wrong and anybody can do it with some hard work!
  10. The best thing I did was stuff the fear of failure, take the plunge, and get building. Congrats on that first step! Looking forward to this build; I've always been curious about Phasma's outfit.
  11. This one beats the other one I posted. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Details look a little "soft" and there are complaints in his feedback that the plastic is thin. This kit is super super cheap and I'm betting the lack of quality is the reason!
