  1. My TK number is 73705. Used number that would IMO match letters in my last name
  2. My nickname is Blaster and this how I got it. At Toronto Comic Con 2019 (Fan Expo's March show), Dan Fogler was one of the guest. It was arrange the he would come to our booth so we provided an escort: 2 or 3 Stormtroopers, Vader, couple of Officers and 3 handlers. Upon arriving at our booth he started to do his shtick; jumping onto Jabba's throne, sticking DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle into Jabba's mouth. Then shouting out "force hold" a blaster would be handed to him where he would say "pew-pew" then toss it aside, he did it a couple of times. He then turns to me and "force hold", I hand him my E-11; wasn't going to be the "sore-thumb" and not participate, where he then as he's about to do his "pew-pew" I hear him say not this piece of crap or something along those lines and tosses my blaster aside (my blaster at the time was metal and plastic and a gift) it breaks in 3 places. At that point it went dead silent and he realized what he had done and picks up a piece goes to me and offers to pay for it (yes he made restitution for it). Now he did have a video of the incident on his instagram page but all post there have been taken down for whatever reason. Command staff was able to get me a new E-11 through his making restitution but never again will I or anyone else inour Garrison hand him a prop. So if you read this this is how I got my nickname but also be wary about handing him a prop. On a lighter note I made a patch to commemorate what had happen.

  4. Was getting into first hour then walked out. Reason for walking out....3 smeg-heads behind me kept talking; "this" is going to happen, "see this happens next". After asking the to stop talking 3x I had enough and walked out. Will try to see it again. But from what I saw in the first hour had me captivated

  6. So far no one has asked to hold my E-11....so far, but I know the rules. I may want to place a small flashlight on E-11
  7. Hello, Nik here from Canadian Garrison (GTA area). Extremely happy to be a member of the 501st Legion (been a long "road" for me) Approved August 2018 Fan Expo Troop-am one with rifle
  8. Purchased my kit from WTF (Walt). More than happy with it and the quality of the kit!
  9. Guessing not as heavy as the metal on I had at Fan Expo
  10. Was able to get glue at Canadian Tire, though some hobby shops carry it. Screws/snaps I purchased at Tandy Leather in Mississauga
  11. Thank you for the information. Even though I've had 9 troops so far it's good to fall back and re-read guidelines to keep in memory
  12. I've noticed different variations of the E-11 Blasters; 3D printer, resin, metal & plastic. Which is best? I've had the use of one made with metal but is heavy to hold for periods of time during a troop.
  13. Still unable to post in this area of forum. Have posted in "501st Trooper Status Requests (Include link to your 501st profile in your request!)" and followed directions. Is there something else that needs to be done?
  14. Thanks 68Brick. Build is complete and as stated not by me but fellow member is CG. Unfortunately didn't get any photos of build process and unable to post photos of completed build in "Newly Approved Members - Sound Off!" section for some reason
  15. https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=28554 TK-ANH Stormtrooper
  16. So I posted in "New Members Introductions" section, but can't seem to post in "Newly Approved Members - Sound Off!" section. Any info/help would be greatly appreciated
  17. Thanks again all, most appreciated. This is all new to me so I'm bound to make mistakes. First off I didn't take any pre-build photos and TK was put together by someone else.
  18. Hello all, New recruit to the Canadian Garrison. I got my kit; TK ANH, from Walt's Troop Factory. Looking forward to this journey I have started.
