  1. Still in search of my first armor (6' 2", mesomorphic build). How about StormtrooperStoreUS on Etsy? They have an XL Extended Set (https://www.etsy.com/listing/541953495/star-wars-stormtrooper-costume-armor?) Is this a reputable shop?
  2. Hello everyone. Not sure this is the right area to ask, but as a newcomer, it seemed like a logical place. Has anyone heard from Rob McFadyen (RT-MOD) (trooper7@shaw.ca) lately? I was able to contact him initially about my first set of armor. Because I'm rather tall (6'2"), I know RT's armor would work best for me. Since I'm a graphic designer for 35+ years, I offered Rob the idea that we trade my design services (a new website) for a set of TK armor. He initially responded to my emails, but ultimately didn't want to work the trade... which is perfectly fine by me. But when I reached out to him again for me to BUY my armor, several times over the past few months, he has never responded. Is RT-MOD still producing armor? When was the last time anyone heard from him?
  3. Thank you all for your answers. I ask because I'm just a bit unknowledgeable on details as I have yet to acquire my first armor. But I saw the saber on the 501st spec ( http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_commander ) under the Optional Accessories category. Just didn't know if a TK Commander can carry both at the same time. Thanks again!
  4. Can a TKC have a holstered lightsaber AND carry an E-11?
  5. Star Raider... Thank you for posting these detail shots so long ago. I'm JUST getting into the mix, hopefully starting my first build soon. One question posted to everyone here: Is there a specific blue recommended for the initial armor paint, prior to weathering? I would imagine it would be a bit brighter and more vibrant to start, and then muted down following the weathering process. I really want to be sure and impress everyone in the 501st, especially those that will be involved in my approval process. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. Hello to everyone of the FISD. My name is Chris and I live in the Southeast (Raleigh, NC). looking to hopefully acquire my first armor soon. Have been researching many builds over the past couple months and I know that since I am 6'2" and 260 with a mesomorphic frame, I want to go to RT for my first build. Hope to have the resources (monies) soon and excited about shooting for a TK Commander spin. As a graphic designer and artist by trade, I'm very detail oriented and ready to do some first-rate weathering. Once all that happens, I will be giving the Carolina Garrison of the 501st a call.
