  1. E11 should it be gloss, semi gloss or flat black? Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  2. Got the Field Marshal kit and looking to start painting before the BlastFX electronics show up. However, have zero experience painting Aluminum so is there a recommended primer and paint I should use? Will be painting parts before assembly, so don't want something that'll be too thick and create issues. Thanks!
  3. Location: Seattle WA Event: May 4th Outdoor COVID Troop Date: 05-04-2020 Garrison: Titan  With COVID19 all troops have been cancelled for the rest of the year basically. Might be some in the fall, but at this point I really doubt it. For May 4th, a group decided to do a outdoor walk to help raise people's spirits a bit. We'd picked the Green Lake part in Seattle to do a 'walk about' in costume. It was a bit of a trip, because prior to the walk we'd scheduled as a Garrison I saw a solo Star Wars fan doing their own! Was at a Starbucks getting coffee far in advance of the scheduled walk, and saw a full on TK with a Imperial Cog flag going out into the park! Most likely was just a fan with a full TK suit, kind of wish I'd run by and talked to them. But got a little freaked out that the walk was starting early so rushed home and suited up without talking to them. Living close enough to the park, just suited up at home (really nice), and walked down to the park. Was fun seeing people waving and kids reacting as I walked through the neighborhood. Got to the park and asked the others about the early TK, and no one knew who it was, so guess it really was just a 'super fan'. The Jedi of course believes the force is with him, so didn't need PPE. Got about 3 miles of walking in TK armor this time and found out where all the rubbing points were around the back of my legs. Had some nasty armor burns, so did some more trimming and adjusting so that won't happen again. Usually don't walk that far in kit, so never had that problem before.
  4. Location: Mercer Island WA Event: Cub Scouts Master Rotation Date: 02-27-2020 Garrison: Titan  Quick TK Troop at a Boy Scouts Event where their Scout Master was rotating out. Was a lot of fun and got a great crowd reaction when we four TKs and a Mandilorian ran out and arrested the old Scout Master and led him away. My eyes closed ever picture for some reason.
  5. Location: Everett WA Event: Silvertips Hockey Game Star Wars Night Date: 02-22-2020 Garrison: Titan  A medium sized sporting event in my hometown where I grew up. Was a ton of fun, missed last year due to a huge ice storm, this year was much nicer weather. Had a really good turnout for Titan Garrison members! Almost 30 people I believe. I'm tallest TK. Snow Troopers are VERY tall. Didn't ride the Zamboni, but got to go meet tons of people in the crowd later with the other TKs and Jawas. No major equipment breaks, but did get a crack in my right knee ammo pack. How's that happen? No biggie as it looks like Trooperbay sells those individually. Was able to patch the back of the ammo pack with a bit of ABS and E6000 to keep the crack running, but will need to keep a eye on it. Fun giving the local law enforcement a hard time. They have restrictions as people here believe they have rights. But under Imperial Law, we have no such restrictions! [emoji6]
  6. Location: Tacoma WA Event: Jet City Comic Con Date: 10-27-2019 Garrison: Titan  This is a smaller con that happens down in the City of Tacoma. Sometimes the smaller cons are more fun since they aren't a madhouse of people like the larger ones. We had a Photo Booth, Blast-a-Trooper and Props setup. I'm on the left. Empire captured some pirate that day. Kamino Cloners started making miniatures I guess. Passed GO, and collected 200 Dollars.
  7. Location: Seattle WA - Woodland Park Zoo Event: Downs Syndrome Buddy Walk Date: 10-06-2019 Garrison: Titan  Buddy walk is always fun. Last year went as Vader, which was fun, but I think I was avoided quite a bit since I was 'scary'. TKs looked like they were having much more fun, so decided to do TK this year. Was a good decision! We had a really large turnout this year, which overloaded our roster list! A great problem to have. Made a lot of new buddies. Hard to see down, but you make due.
  8. Congrats on EIB. Great job! Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  9. Nice work dude! Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  10. Man, don't know how I missed your thread. Congrats on doing a AM build! Nice to have another AM kit in Garrison Titan.
  11. Location: Seattle WA Event: Seattle Pride Parade Date: 06-30-2019 Garrison: Titan  Another pretty large event for Garrison Titan! I think we had the most members show up for a Pride Parade this year I think, but got no way to confirm that. Just what the ol'timers were saying. Was glad I could lend my support, almost ended up being one of two TK's but the word went out and we got a few more! People REALLY love the TKs. Didn't have a lot of color, but luckily some other TK had a flag I could borrow as a 'cape' and I got a sticker. Will need to invest in some not too sticky colored tape for next time. So we start by Seattle Center and suit up in a parking garage there, then 'take over' the Monorail to the parade. Watching people on the Monorail and looking up at it is really fun. They freak out. Chewbacca has some height challenges, but he made it work. I was very stupid and thought I'd show off that I could sit as a TK. Oops, ended up with at least 3 cracks around my lower back and buttplate. Boss wasn't too impress with my sitting. Other passengers were pretty impressed with him! I think someone brought a drone, but wasn't sure. No idea how this was taken. Teamed with another TK and did some rounds. Lot's of Star Wars Fans, young: And Old: Parade was a LOT of fun. Kind of goes by in a blur and with a crowd that big, you really kind of get intimidated and a little confused. Some of the other's that had done it before seemed to know what to do, so just copied them a lot of the time. Mission accomplished. Hung out at the end with some of the remaining TKs and let people get some pictures on the way out. Was tons of fun and weather wasn't super hot. Probably the largest event I've been to so far. Was pretty wild. Needed a cheesy pose with the cape. : )
  12. Location: Seattle WA Event: Mariners Baseball Star Wars Night Date: 05-31-2019 Garrison: Titan This was a pretty big event, and had pretty good turn out. The weather was a bit muggy, but once we got into the Stadium the breeze was real nice. A little smaller crowd turnout than last year, but that was probably because the Mariners were in a bit of a slump. I'm the TK just to the back of Vader. Luckily he was taller than I am. Found some miniature versions. Some were a little scared, but the Ewok always seemed to be able to get them to come for pictures. Rebel sympathizer decided to point the finger at me. Hope she enjoys the detention cell. Found a General Grievous. Only real issue I had was the garter system snaps on my right thigh kept popping loose when we would move. Went ahead and just put some E6000 in the snaps so the straps stay on the thigh. Don't really see a reason to remove the straps as they just velcro around the belt. E11 just looks so small, Might start packing the DLT-19 again in the future.
  13. Bounty Hunters, we don't need their scum! Hey Greg! I've got a lot of leftover TK build supplies if you need some. If you need clamps, magnets, E6000, strapping, elastic, rivets, snaps, etc let me know. I way overbought supplies when I did mine. If you need some let me know. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  14. It come with any assembly instructions? Was thinking about getting one of these kits and try and put in BlastFX electronics. Not sure I'm ready for another project yet. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome Cameron! Looking forward to trooping with you! Try and make it to a Monthly Meet and Greet if you can. You can also sign up as a handler before you get an approved TK if you want to checkout events. If you are registered on the Garrison Titan Forums, the Washington Summer Con June 15-16 would be a good non-costume volunteer opportunity. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
