  1. Yeah I was confused by the instructions and put the risers down first and then the cloth with the speakers on top. Doesn’t look bad at all but I wish I would’ve done the cloth first. I may redo it later. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  2. Well I’m down to only waiting on a few things to come in now.. got my undersuit today. -KB Armor (December) -Gio’s Boots -Blaster Rifle & Pistol Kits (January) -Harness and Gaskets -R2Dan Metal Holster (December) Still waiting for Geeky to reply about opening another run and not sure how long Gio takes to make and ship his boots. Was also able to slide into Dan’s current holster run. One of the guys had to drop from the list. Btw, I tried on the undersuit. I assumed it would be a little snug. I just gotta make sure I watch my eating over the holidays! Wearing the suit by itself kinda makes me feel like this: Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  3. There are still three TFA statues on eBay if anyone wants such a paperweight, lol Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  4. Good advice! I’ll pick some up. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  5. Got the FOTK audio system installed. Put in the speakers, mic, and amp. I stripped back the liner and installed per directions, although I added some dabs of hot glue to secure things. I really want to strip the liner out and add some heavier padding for sound, although not really needed that badly. Uswrath’s has a really awesome system and it goes along great with the MiCom sound rig I picked up. The push button pre-recorded lines coming directly from the helmet are super cool. And I really like having the ability to talk using my own voice if needed. I also played around with the hearing assist setup.. man what a difference! You can hear everything around you and it’s stereo so it’s very easy to tell where things are coming from. With the 4 fans running it’s a bit hard to hear without anything installed. But with this system you can pick up the smallest sounds and the external speakers don’t seem much louder than what you hear without the headphones in. I would like to find some sort of noise cancelling headphones that’ll fit in the bucket. Then maybe I won’t have to pad the bucket any more than it is. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  6. Got my Trooperbay pouches and all of Ukswrath’s goodies in just now! Now to carefully see how well I can cram all of this into this bucket.. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  7. So, KB Props just posted this.. looks like things are well under way! Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  8. Yeah that one partially complete kit I was looking at was an older KB.. looked a bit silly once assembled. The butt plate and the chest/back looked huge. Seems they’ve adjusted the proportions quite a bit. So yeah, looks like I’ll actually have an armor build thread instead of just a blaster build thread lol The rest of my helmet electronics from Ukswrath come in tomorrow. I got pretty much everything he sells for the FOTK bucket. I already installed the 4 fan kit and found a couple of usb battery packs with led meters (a feature I like so you can tell at a glance how much juice is left). I’ll post more once I get all these gadgets crammed into the bucket.. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  9. So after searching around and doing some more research.. even considered some partially built armor kits.. I decided to hit up KB Props about getting in on his next run. I wasn’t sure if KB was the way to go considering how large some of his pieces were but I think he’s made some changes to the forms to call for less modifications out of the box. However, surprisingly enough, he’s allowing me to jump in on the current run which delivers a week before Christmas! I assume he has more ABS material than he needs, so I’m grateful to have been allowed in on a closed run. In any event, I’ve got a BBB coming! Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  10. Found some armor on sale at the Halloween store.. might take some modifications to make it fit though. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  11. I’m right behind you! Just got my helmet too and waiting until January or so for my blaster kits to come in.. looking forward to trying to keep up with you. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  12. It’s pretty dampening in terms of sound. Definitely no echoing.. but it’s also a little difficult to hear. More so with two of the fans from your kit running and even more with all four. I will need to probably add more padding or support inside. The provided pads are barely enough to wear it as is. I know that’ll change once I add all the electronics. Even so, that’ll just add to the sound dampening. Hence the reason I picked up the hearing assist kit (along with almost everything else you offer) for the bucket. Appreciate the quick response and super fast shipping. Definitely hard to see out of. I’m guessing you get used to it, but it’s a little blurry where the lenses are curved in certain spots which distorts your field of vision a bit. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  13. The one from KB Props and this one looks pretty different too. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  14. I have the basic one from Trooperbay. Seems pretty thin. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
  15. So I’m having trouble tracking down which pauldron style the FOTK uses. I’ve checked some other discussions when I search but a lot of the threads are gone. I see the regular one, like the basic black vacuum formed one that has what looks like vinyl on it. And then there’s the sweet looking leather style that’s plush and stitched. Which is it? The CRL and even the toys I’m seeing looks to be the basic one.. Sent from my iPhone using The Force
