  1. LOL! This is great. I'll probably be doing this all day.
  2. David, Thanks. I finally finished modeling my tears and traps and will probably print them in resin this week. I discovered as I was doing this that there's small differences on either side because of the fiberglass casting, so I ended up making a separate file for each part. After I was done I realized that I probably could have just printed each one a little oversized and file the resin down to fit. Oh well.
  3. Jason, That should work for you. Also, if you want to take a look at Paul's video to understand how the bungee system works, it can be found here: https://fb.watch/56G5h8Wcd_/
  4. Jeff, I didn't see this response a few days ago. I guess that means I was busy all weekend. Also, I slowed down on the ROTK over the last couple days because I'm getting very close on the ICAT build and started a Mudtrooper. For the ROTK, all I did this weekend was finish my suspenders and started the chest and back, but the TK should pick up again pretty quick in the next couple nights. So, regarding your second quote first, I already opened that can-o-worms. I need to look closer at the biceps and thighs, because I haven't seen any good reference photos of the cordage in these parts, b
  5. This should never have happened in the first place. I agree 100%. This should not have happened. The reason I bring up the Black Series figures is to show Disney/ Lucasfilm intent through their marketing/ merchandising. What was explained to me is that they intended to put Mountain Troopers in Galaxy's Edge, but haven't as of yet. However, Lucasfilm blessed off on the character itself as a Hasbro Galaxy's Edge exclusive (that later found its way to Target). Additionally, I just read that the character was mentioned in Pablo Hidalgo's "The Star Wars Book"??? I don't have the book, s
  6. Thanks Justin. I will cover Solo tomorrow, but I can get people's gears turning now... Is it still a Jedha Patrol Trooper or Crystal Patrol Duty Trooper if they're not patrolling Jedha or on Crystal Patrol Duty???? That may be a case for the MEPD...Just saying.
  7. I think it's fair to recap the discussion before I jump straight in to the good stuff. @Parquetteinitiated this conversation back in November 2019 with a simple idea: "I would like to propose a new CRL specifically for the Mandalorian TK." Reese did a good job in the initial post of pointing out the new series' use of both the ROTK costume, or "Anthology" as it's sometimes referred to, as well as a hybrid version consisting of ROTK armor and the OT helmet. This character, we have since learned, is referred to in the series and Disney marketing as the "Remnant Stormtroop
  8. Matt, Good catch on both. Not sure if you saw our continued conversation over at the FISD Facebook page today or not, but I posted a few screenshots from The Dutchess. Love it. So, I had an awesome post going and unfortunately I closed the page or something. So, I will provide my "analysis" of the Remnants and New Generation/ Anthology TKs tomorrow. Until then, I leave you with this: Good night.
  9. Justin, I think you nailed it. Here's the one I was thinking about with the larger airsoft gearbox and trigger group assembly: Also, after looking at the Saberforge website, I see what they did. They're offering their nonfunctioning (initiate tier) model for $399; with electronics it's just under $800. I wish the Initiate tier was a little less though, the S&T variant is actually cheaper and is a fully functional airsoft rifle; a function we actually don't need. Regardless, the electronics are pretty cool, but still some modifications needed for ROTK approval.
  10. That works. A few of us have made our own belts. I did one on page 4 of the 3D print build thread found here: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/49826-the-bigjasonis-rotk-3d-print-build-thread/page/4/ and @11b30b4 (Jeff) helped out with one on Kyle's build thread here: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/49604-r1tk-wip/. Since doing the 3d print build, I've learned a lot more about the armor and have made several updates, but the belt has remained relatively unchanged. However, I did switch out the ammo boxes for the far more accurate ones I posted in the 3D Print Repository: https://ww
  11. Isn't that the SMG Airsoft grip? It doesn't have the airsoft gearbox up by the trigger, but the whole trigger group assembly appears to be off. It also appears to have the airsoft bolt. To me it looks like a fun blaster, but there's mixed elements of an E-11 and E-11b (Rogue One) blaster. Maybe calling it an E-12 is appropriate. Again, fun blaster to own, but probably not the right choice for submission.
  12. Ben, In your FB post, you mentioned that your belt is 3" tall. How tall are the boxes? This sounds a little short, but similar to tab height, it's not listed in the CRL, so just make sure it proportional to the rest of your armor. I think the best you're going to get is people providing measurements for their kit, but as you can see, my belt without the tabs is 3.75". This is one of those instances where you'll have to rely on the CRL clause that states "requirements for all 501st costumes are proportional to the wearer in scale, fit and size." If it helps, he tabs on my Jimi belt are about
  13. @Sly11, Thanks for adding to the conversation. When I see the two helmets on screen, immediately my thoughts turn to another costume I'm building; the ICAT Driver. When you look at the CRL, https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:Imperial_Combat_Assault_Transport_Driver#Version One you see "Version 1" and "Version 2." Version 1, Lieutenant, has the weathered, olive grey biceps, and Version 2, Commander, has the red bicep armor. Now, with there being a large number of alternatives one could put together, i.e. thermal detonator or no TD, I would be a proponent of holding some of these
  14. Michael, That looks great. I'm going to start working on my kit.
  15. Justin, Thanks for resurrecting the thread. I was just having this conversation with someone yesterday and was about to reengage, but you beat me to it. So, maybe a little my fault for getting this thread off course earlier with the action figures, but I believe LFL has had no problem marketing the Remnant character. As of this post, we now have a black series figure, two vintage collection versions and a sideshow collectibles sixth scale figure. Yes, Hasbro and Sideshow are independent companies, but it shows that the blessing was given by LFL for the naming of this character. T
