  1. Thanks for sharing man. You guys look like you are a great group and everyone looke genuinely excited to be there! Hope you continue to enjoy trooping as much as we all do. Make sure you go to CVI...CV was me and my wife's first big convention and I can't even began to explain the level of excitement there.
  2. Congrats on your photo-op! Looks interesting, but come on 500 bucks???? Yeah maybe a Non-Limited version will hit in the future....
  3. We shall double our efforts....

  4. If it's possible may I ask that my EIB photo be updated to this photo? When I was originally approved I really didn't have access to a decent camera. The photo there is pretty bad and plus I'm 25lbs lighter now! Thanks a bunch!! Here's a direct link as well, just in case http://i616.photobucket.com/albums/tt247/jedifoster/IMG_8499.jpg
  5. Wow! It's Alive!!! It's Alive!! Yeah you guys are right about not worrying so much, Im going to shoot AP another pm right now..
  6. Well I've got very quick responses back from ATA and AP and now it comes down to deciding which one ... The ATA was a little more glossy but with a good shine they could match pretty well. Thanks for mentioning the difference in color between AP and ATA. That may be the avenue to take since RT mod us slightly lighter in color than ATA. Appreciate the help everyone!
  7. Thanks for the Vote of confidence! I really wanted to keep everything the same out of respect for the sculpters work but trying to tighten them up just wasn't working. The top would be to pointy and the heat gun couldn't break ball-like form near the top without shrinking the surrounding area.
  8. With all the franken suits out there has anybody tried this? A friend brought over a scrap piece of plastic from ATA and it has a very slight color difference but not noticeable outside. Inside though with a trained eye you can tell but doesn't look bad. Wonder if AP is any different? Are there any tricks to blend ABS armors together? Really want to get more arch in bells and would like to avoid bondo and painting and still having them not match as close anyway. Thanks for any help!!
  9. Good luck brother!! It's worth it knowing that your recognized for putting in the extra effort and getting to sport the EIB banner. Plus you'll get that uber gold EIB coin
  10. Thanks for the heads up! I'll shoot doopy doos an email and see what the differences are between it and the mark III kit he was going to make. I can't take full credit for the blaster, Casey did most of the work. I did the trigger,some minor assembly,epoxy on the scope lens, repaint and weathering the blaster. You definitely have my vote on DD's stuff I just don't get the whole no hasbro at all thing though. There are good builds from both pipe and the hasbro. If it's a matter of just length,etc let the guys add the length and strip it down and add to meet the standards. Especially if the hasbro has been stripped down everything minus the electronics. Why not give someone the chance to meet the standards and keep the electronics and disable them/remove batteries and plug the light for canon events? Sorry for the rant fellas but I wish I was not so busy at work and had a chance to chime in when the centurion deal was voted on...Heck I just found out about there now being a whole other website with folks splintering off and the bit.
  11. I'd really like to go centurion but it looks like I have to buy a hyperfirm or build one...In the meantime I'll remain a lowly trooper with my non realistic Hasbro
  12. This is ridiculous... Fellow troopers fighting over pipe and a toy Both are inaccurate if you want to be honest...and both can look great.
