  1. Cannot wait for these to be made!
  2. Hey Glen, I am finally getting around to finishing my TK armor now that I got my TIE Pilot approved. I was taking another look over your suggestion and saw how simple the shim was in this picture. Is how it is in this picture all that would need to be done to wear a side shim? I had assumed it needed to be seamless (and maybe filled in with ABS paste) but on a closer look, it literally looks like it is stuck up there with velcro. That would be an awesome easy fix to my gap if that is the case lol. In other news, I learned how to make ABS paste and added an extension for my fat calves . I also finished a helmet kit that I got from Jason at Intergalactic Supply. I will be posting pictures to the forums for preapproval soon. Looking forward to trooping in a TK again!

  4. OoooOOOooohhh! I usually don't buy the Hasbro replica stuff but I might have to get this one for display! Thanks for the info!
  5. Thanks for the clarification! I would like to replace my overlap actually because since I did my troops back in the day I have gained a few pounds and my calve pieces are reaaaal snug in the back lol. I just need a few centimeters of space in the back to make them close comfortably. How do bigger troopers usually close those rear gaps without suffocating? I think I might want to just buy some ABS sheets from trooperbay and redo the strips completely but I am unsure how to do it and also stay in the widths mentioned above. How picky is the screen accuracy vs fit on the rear of the legs?
  6. Thanks Sly! You guys have all been so helpful. Especially the GML Drew, he has been a pleasure to work with! I did have one question about the CRL. It says no overlap construction is allowed. I searched the forums but didn't find any examples. I want to be sure I am good on that. Do you have any pictures or definition of what that is? Is that something that my FX armor would have to worry about anyway? I have already replaced some elements of the FX such as adding new buttons on the front and adding a cloth belt. I think all I have left to do for basic approval is get the new bucket, fill in the side gaps, detach the butt plate, and put my holster on the inside of the cloth belt. Hopefully I can get it all taken care of soon. Is there anything else you see on my armor that would have to be changed? Thanks again for all the help!
  7. Hi everyone, I am working on my armor to be reapproved and I see this phrase pop up in a few places on the ANH Hero/Stunt. I am trying to get basic approval but I am unfamiliar with the term "overlap construction." I'm sorry if this has been asked before but when I searched the forums I saw lots of mentions of overlap but couldn't find an explanation of what it actually is. Thanks!
  8. Wow! This is so great. Thanks a ton for this post. I had always wondered. I know for the side gaps I have seen larger troopers (like myself) in the past with a white cloth instead of plastic. Is that approvable or is that a no go? I wouldn't think so but just wanted to check before I wrote it off completely lol. I didn't point this out earlier, but I have made some modifications to the original armor in adding a cloth belt, adding the white elastic shoulder straps, and changing the ab buttons. Just want to make sure these were good or not before I replace some of the aforementioned parts. Thanks again, this is such a relief!
  9. Hi, thanks for the response. So the helmet needs to go. Check. What about the rest of the armor?
  10. Hi everyone, I joined the legion about 10 years ago but have gone inactive since. I was trying to get my armor reapproved and I submitted my pictures last night for my ANH Hero armor. I got an email back from the GML saying that my armor kit no longer conforms to the CRL any longer. He said to reach out to the forums to see if you had any suggestions on how to rework it. I bought the armor from a legion member 12 years ago and he never told me what the make of the armor was. At the time I just knew he was already in the legion and this suit was approved. My GML said that this is ATA armor which is not approvable apparently. I know my helmet and my armor are from different sets. Is the helmet the only this that is not approvable or is it my armor as well? Thanks for the help. Here are my pics: Imgur Link
