  1. @Morgi thank you. Lol yeah I took my time, but I'm here now finally and it is a great feeling. Ready to get trooping!
  2. Thanks Chemi, definitely interested in Expert Infantry and Centurion. I kind of feel like I'm cheating though, since I didn't put my armor together myself. There are so many talented troopers here that put in a lot of hands on hard work to build centurion armor from scratch. I did get some advice on the new member discussion thread that it would be fairly simple to make and ESB armor by building another helment so I may start there to get my feet wet with my armor skills.
  3. Great work on your build! Welcome to the Legion brother!
  4. Welcome to the Legion (from another happy newbie)!
  5. Looking sharp, trooper! I have a full commission from RS as well. Its amazing isn't it?!? They do incredible work. Congrats!
  6. Welcome aboard! I lived in the PNW for about 7 years back in the early late 90s and early2000s and took my kiddos to see the Prequels there. Hope to move back one day
  7. What an amazing story and Journey. I'm a newbie TK myself so I can understand the joy you must bee feeling. Congrats and great work!!
  8. HI all, I just got my approval last week for my ANH Stunt Stormtrooper Armor and am very excited to join the ranks of the 501st! My name is Charles and I live in St Louis, MO , USA. I am currently assigned to the 70th Explorers, Gateway Squad. I've been following the 501st online for around 20 years and been dreaming about being able to suit up one day for a troop and it looks like my one day is finally here. Back in the early 2000's I was a young dad of twins (not Luke and Leia). The Dad time commitment along with not having much money kept me from the 501st, but now as a guy in his mid 40s with grown kids I find I finally have some time and disposable income (Lucky me) and I definitely wanted to live my dream of being a real storm trooper. Being born in the mid 1970s I grew up with Star Wars and I chose the ANH armor based on my first memory of those bad *ss dudes in white armor blasting their way into the Tantive 4. ANH just blew me away as a kid and that why I had to go with the OG ANH armor. My set was a full build from RS Prop masters and is currently adorning a 6ft tall mannequin in my office. I smile from ear to ear every morning I walk in and see it. I feel like I'm a little kiddo again on Christmas morning opening up some cool Kenner star wars toys lol. I am hoping to work on a second set from scratch myself in the up coming years to get that full experience (Sand trooper anyone?) but I just couldn't wait and for now I had to buy my first set pre-built. Here is a link to some pics for those interested. Thanks for having me. I look forward to getting a chance to meet some of you all one day! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1f_pdHpHOR5akadKhEgCTY6MJ7wWf40dK?usp=sharing

  10. Yes ANH for the win! Although my fave movie is ESB, I had to go with the original that made me love star wars. I was really really pleased with how the RS Props kit turned out. They did an amazing job and made the months and months of saving up worth it. I am excited to make some friends in my local squad to learn about actually making some stuff from scratch. I'm not too handy, but I did used to make model cars and planes as a kid so I'm sure I can learn. I may just start with a helmet kit for display in my office to get my feet wet. I'd love to learn how to paint and weather things to make them look used and battle damaged. What skill!
