  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Greg Smith from Garrison Titan. He also did the Luke ANH Land Speeder. Did it all from photographs, and I guess he got the scale almost spot on, at least according to a ex-ILM employee that came through our booth at ECCC. He just got an Anovos kit so maybe he'll be doing a TK build on here soon.
  6. Thanks! Yeah was a little worried about cracking something, but it was all good. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  7. Location: Seattle WA Event: Emerald City Comic Con Thrusday Date: 03-14-2019 Garrison: Titan First day of the Comic Con. Did the morning Line Duty which was fun. Then filled in for some Blast a Trooper (unfortunately no pictures from that yet). Ewok got all the hugs! T_T Disabled a rebel transport while holding a ladder for some Probe Droid maintenance. The Garrison Titan Booth was really great! First con I've done, and couldn't believe some of the Props.
  8. I personally use USKWRATH's fan system connected to this battery pack: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D7JQK24/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Battery fits nicely into the top of my helmet and USKWRATH's setup allows you to connect with a regular USB port. Work's great!
  9. Amazing! Where was this? Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  10. Solid work Sir! Great to see another AM build. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk
  11. I got a Quest Designs E11 off of Etsy, it's very good. Highly recommend them. It's about a 3 month turn around with them though. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk

  13. Location: Seattle WA Event: Woodland Park Zoo Lights Date: 01-03-2019 Garrison: Titan Had really bad rain all day and everyone was worried that it'd be a washout. The rain letup just in time however! Of course, rain isn't much concern to a TK. Some of the other costumes might have had more problems. Guarding the Photo Memories. Might have some sensitive data in them. An Ewok showed up and really wanted to get it's pictures. Had to put it back into the Zoo. It's a petting Zoo. Boss showed up. Saber looks really good at night. Rode off in circles when it was all done. Some creaking, but nothing broke when I got mounted. Was a little worried I'd crack something, but it was all good!
  14. Location: Seattle WA Event; Symphony Date: 10-27-2018 Garrison: Titan All set with my AM2.0 TK so first troop was to the Seattle Symphony Planets which they played some Star Wars. The Symphony Players did costumes even. TubaPlayer actually played as Kylo Ren. Impressive. Did a walk out during the concert and had a spotlight on us. Was pretty hard to see with a light in your face, but went really well. Then did pictures with folks as it was letting out. Really quick troop but was a good test run after I did some of the EIB modifications. We even got mentioned in the local Classical Radio station the next morning. I guess we made a impression on one of the announcers who was there that night.
  15. Putting a list here to track changes made that were for Centurion. 1. Helmet frown, painted the edge after the uncut tooth. 2. Got wire and created new brackets for the chest piece edge that are 1/2 inch longer so the chest sits lower. 3. Added outer edge elastic staps to hold the butt plate flush with the lower back. 4. Tapered the forearms around the wrist by 2cm. Any more and I'd have a hard time getting my hands through. 5. Trimmed the front thigh coverstrip to be 20mm instead of 30mm. 6. Used the 2nd belt cover, trimmed the edges less than the first and added the raised rivet covers. Vs the sunk covers on the old one. Still to do: 1. AB button plates, square the edges and touchup the button paint. 2. Adjust left forearm to bicep strap a cm or two longer to line up better with right.
