  1. Hi Kyle. I'm in Waterdown, not horribly far from you. We have members in your region as well. I'd be happy to help out with your build. I'll PM you with details.
  2. Hi gang, I'm assembling an Anovos ANH stunt for a friend. My first build was an AP and I used the Trooperbay strapping system with the metal loops. Taking a look at the Anovos, I can't make heads or tails of the included strapping. Can anyone possibly send me an internal picture of an Anovos kit assembled? Thanks a ton!
  3. Hi Wayne. Fellow Canadian here. I pm'ed you.
  4. Welcome fellow Canuck! There's no such thing as asking too many questions, but not asking enough is definitely a thing. As mentioned, check the latest CRLs to make sure you're up to date on requirements. After that, read, ask questions, read, ask more questions, and keep your build thread going and active. Post lots of pictures. Have you sourced your armour and parts yet?
  5. Sept 7th - Parry Sound Airport open house:
  6. Aug 30th - Toronto Blue Jays Star Wars Night. As one of the 2 TKs, I stood guard at the visitor's dugout and escorted the umpires onto the field.
  7. The RS helmet is gorgeous with the imperfections. I troop with a guy who has one on a regular basis and he's happy with his kit. That being said, I have an AP myself and have been pretty happy with it. I WOULD order an extra set or 2 of the shoulder straps as they take a lot of abuse and are prone to breaking. I think I got about 12 troops out of my first set, and others in my garrison have run into the same issue.
  8. Just a thought since you have nothing to lose - Have you tried Oxy-Clean?
  9. I can barely get my bucket on as it is. I can't imagine being able to get it over a set of goggles, as much as I'd love to have the better vision. I second the opinion of front-only being nice.
  10. If in doubt, 1 size up and throw in some insoles. I'm a 9 1/2 and ordered a 10 which fit nicely. They're super comfortable boots.
  11. If your helmet is being packed separately, you can get away with a lot of options. Personally I use a 50 gallon big-an impolite person bin like a lot of others. I pack a lot of repair crap as well, so I like having the extra space and a tray for tools, my chargers, a collection of patches/cards/stickers. Even my big camera bag will fit. as well as my son's Jawa. I'm hoping to be able to get my TK and my Tusken in there at the same time. Yes, it's heavy and awkward, and if you don't have a van/SUV then you're not taking it with you. As far as lugging it around, the vast majority of
  12. I'd also give the bin a quick sand and a really good cleaning to help improve adhesion. Definitely use a good primer, and the best quality paint you can afford. An airbrush would be ideal instead of commercial spray paint. Once you get it primed any issues with adhesion go away, as you're not trying to get paint that sticks to plastic any more. That opens up more choices. I'd even check with an auto-body repair shop in your area to see what they'd charge to do it.
  13. Personal use is usually not a problem. I'd always direct questions to my CO though to be safe. BTW those look awesome!
  14. I use USB fans and USB rechargeable power packs. You can literally run them for days on a charge. There are lots available on Amazon. There are also 12v batteries, but they are small and expensive. You'd go broke. The last option is to chain 8 AAs (or AAAs, or Cs, or Ds) together to get yourself 12 volts. Something like this: https://www.amazon.ca/abcGoodefg-Battery-Holder-Plastic-Storage/dp/B06ZZBX3H1/ref=sr_1_13?crid=1X9JUYBBGKV40&keywords=aa+battery+holder+with+switch&qid=1566915565&s=gateway&sprefix=AA+battery+hol%2Caps%2C180&sr=8-13
  15. Hmmm... Haven't updated this in a while... August was an insane month (umm, still is!), so here we go: July 13th - McMaster Children's Hospital NICU Fundraiser. Aug 9th - Ronald McDonald House Toronto Aug 10th - Toronto Bricks in the Six Aug 17th - Waterloo Airport Open House Aug 19th (first of 2) - Fan Expo Canada day at the CNE Aug 19th (2nd of 2) - Fan Expo/Lego display unveiling at Toronto Union Station Aug 22nd - Canadian Citizenship Ceremony at Fan Expo (welcomed 90 new Canadian citizens at thei
  16. Is this the Mandalorian trailer or a shot of Anovos' warehouse?
  17. Best of luck Dave. Look forward to trooping with you When we get together I'll show you what I did to keep my side gaps tighter (in addition to dropping the weight I has put on LOL)
  18. Troop #13 June 23rd Toronto Pride Parade. We marched along with the Rebels as part of the FanExpo group. Well over a million people lined the streets. Lots of media coverage and exposure. I got to be one of the flag bearers.
  19. Welcome aboard! RS makes a beautiful set. Their helmet is very accurate with its gorgeous orange peel type finish and bumps. There are a ton of resources on here so read lots and ask lots of questions! https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/ Can anyone here comment on the size of an RS helmet in terms of the opening? I know my AP is tight and I am not sure about getting glasses on.
  20. June 2nd 2019 - Mississauga Ontario Star Wars toys/collectibles sale. I somehow managed to only spend $24. Featured guests were Chris Parsons, who played 4-LOM and K-3PO as well as snow and stormtroopers in ESB, and Jim Swearingen who was one of the original Kenner employees who designed a ton of the toys we all love (and was featured in "The Toys That Made Us".
  21. May 28 2019: Toronto Blooms - Fundraiser for kids camps. Vader and his escort were out in force (small F) for this one. We escorted a Last Jedi poster that had been signed by all the cast (including Mark and Carrie) to the stage for the auction.
  22. Agree. I have Imperialboots and they're pretty darned comfy. I've done 6 hours + in them with no problem. A little bit of wear is a good touch. Just watch for any major scuffs. Start with soap/water and get more aggressive from there if you have to.
  23. Advice on the shoulder straps - Reinforce them with a backing strip. They tend to snap... Two of us with AP had them snap in the same place on the same day. White duct tape to the rescue.
