Proposed Requirements for the Phase Stormtrooper

Recommended Posts

Here is the proposed requirements for the Phase III Stormtrooper from TFU. Basiclly it's the same as the TKC but without the blue detail.

 

 

Helmet

 

*Traps (trapezoids on dome of helmet) and tears (area beneath the corners of eye lenses) are gray.

*Rear traps and tears have vertical black lines.

*Lenses are flat material, green in color, sufficiently dark enough to obscure the costumer's eyes.

*The “ear†bars have three or four bumps and should be gray or painted gray, with a black outline. Painting the bumps with rank stripes (highlighted) in black is optional.

*Ears shall have a black horizontal anchor-like detail on each side of the ear bar.

*Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area. Eight total teeth on the frown are cut out.

*Tube stripes are medium blue, numbering between 9 and 16 per side with the curve bends extending backwards.

*Vocoder (vertically ribbed chin detail) is painted black.

*Aerators/Hovi mix tips (cylinders on either side of the vocoder) are black or painted black.

*Tears, traps, and tube stripes may be hand painted, decals, or decals that replicate hand painted.

*Mesh may be used behind the frown to obscure the face of the wearer.

*Note: The FX helmet is considered deprecated (to be avoided), though is acceptable for Legion requirements.

*Note: A stock (out of the box) MRCE and/or EFX PCR helmet does not meet the basic 501st requirements without the major modification that are necessary. Please visit FISD/whitearmor.net for more info on these modifications.

 

*Ears shall have three screws per side, one above and one below the ear bar and one at the base of the helmet.

*Ear bars should have four bumps only, not three.

*Traps/tears and tube stripes shall have the correct ANH TK details

*Correct 'Hovi mic' aerator tips.

*FX helmets are not allowed.

*Helmet and details/paint should be lightly scuffed,(battle worn), but not weathered like a Sandtrooper (TD).

 

*MRCE and/or EFX PCR helmets are not allowed.

*ANHv2 helmets are not allowed.

*Ear bars shall have only one or two bumps painted in black (rank stripes).

*Neck trim shall be of an s-type profile rather than a u-type profile.

*Tears/traps shall be hand painted or use decals that emulate hand painted (with correct ANH TK details).

 

 

Neck Seal

 

*Black with horizontal ribs, fitted to the wearer, and extending from the base of the neck to the top of the Adam's apple.

 

 

 

 

Shoulder Straps

 

*These shall be securely mounted in front and may free float in back. They may be affixed with rivets, Velcro, or adhesive.

 

*No visible rivets are allowed.

The scope connects to the notched out area of the solid rail. The scope shall be the correct design (as the ones seen in ROTJ), and shall attach to the scope rail via one scope mount.

*The muzzle will be unlike the normal ANH style. It shall be flat with two counter sunk Allen bolts (one located at the four o’clock position and one located at the ten ‘o’clock position).

Lightsaber (The Force Unleashed)

The first thing that comes to mind is that the word "phase" has a real clone feel to it.

 

What about "EU TK" or "EU Stormtrooper" (because FU Stormtrooper might be a New York specific costume)

 

Aloha,

I don't see anything about the special rank-bar on the ears. The two half moons and the stripe through them. May want to add that, or I just missed them from the requirement list.

like i said, i named it Phase 3. but its not necessarily going to be the permanent name.. i chose this because Stormtrooper armor (not ANH/ESB/ROTJ specific) is known by some as Phase III armor. just like the Kashyyyk trooper that appears to be a half-step between Phase II clone and Stormtrooper armor (phase 3) Remember that these troopers were seen many years before stormtroopers in ANH.. plus it sounded better that TFU trooper or EU trooper :P

The only bit I don't agree on is this, I think it is the same issue with the TKC and INC centurion requirements.

 

*There shall be no visible side rivets on the kidney plate, unlike ANH/ESB suits.

 

you can clearly see the kidney/ab rivets here :) (only looks like there are 2 though, and spaced out differently)

 

PhaseIII_Left.png

also this

 

*The bottom corners of the thigh ammo belt shall be rounded off.

 

You can see that it isn't, also mounted up higher than the movie troopers

good point Sean

 

this should be omitted from the CRL, i believe it was left from the original ROTJ requirements..

 

as for the knee detail, i would rather make this detail optional at this time (may have)

what mathias said!

 

 

The fifth line in the requirement states: *Ears shall have a black horizontal anchor-like detail on each side of the ear bar.

BTW, it is the same in the TKC. :)

My bad, too many late night copy and pasting and not enough caffeine :huh: I just looked at the the Incinerator and the TKC requirements on the Legion side. The Incinerator does state:

 

*Two rivets shall be present on each side of the kidney plate, approximately 4mm from the inside edge of the U shaped gasket or molded lip that is adjacent to the ab plate. There will be one rivet near the top and one near the bottom on each side. They may be painted white, or not.

 

But somehow I jump over that with the TKC when posting it. Like I said too many late night copy and pasting when working on all the TK CRLs.

 

BTW, I have corrected it in the TKC and added to the Phase 3 requirements above. Plus added this to the proposed Thigh requirement above as well:

 

*The ammo belt should be installed higher then typical on the bottom of the right thigh (as seen in the game).

:laugh1: FUTK ........ hey, forget about it.

 

 

I was thinking of "UTK" for "Unleashed TK" and not use "The Force" part of the title.

One thought. Why are we allowing a Starkiller lightsaber in the CRL?

The Lightsaber only appears with these troopers if you play the game using one of these as a 'skin', as such it's a customised character (akin to the Star Wars Galaxies stuff). The 'Canon' Phase 3 TK's are not shown with lightsabers in any of the game sequences proper or cut scenes?

 

Just curious

It is just like the other TKs "Optional Accessories" The ANH Hero has the BlasTech SE-14R and the Stormtroooper lightsaber which is not seen in the movies, but is an option....

 

The StarKiller Lightsdaber something you see in the EU games and like you said with the "customized character" which the EU TKs are one of those that can be customized with adding the Starkiller lightsaber.

 

Canon is a term used for Film TKs (any other Flim characters) not a term used for the EU TKs.

 

If we do an LFL event, they only want Film (AKA "Canon") TKs and and Film Clones no EU stuff...So, we get to play a little more or "Expand their Universe" when it come to the EU TK.s

Listen to Tom, he's a wise man!

 

Personally I don't think any EU trooper should use the lightsabre. You can only do that in the game by cheating or beating the game (and getting the skins as a bonus), and then it's not really a TKC, INC or other that is using the sabre, it's still Starkiller that you play as. A real trooper in the game would never have a sabre.

Sorry to revive this old thread, but I just built this costume. Is it safe to say this CRL would be green lit as soon as pictures of the costume are submitted and reviewed? I know there were some recent changes to the CRL of the TK Commander, from which this would pretty much be a copy+paste, minus the blue markings. 

 

I'll be setting up the backdrop and taking photos tomorrow evening if everyone's on the same page as far as the costume requirements go.

I would suggest there will be changes to the draft since other CRL's have undergone changes since this thread was posted. I would also suggest contacting the DL Sarah @Alayin regards to the completion of the CRL and here's info on new to the legion costumes and the process for approval https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:CRLGuide
