T-21 Rifle: Custom built by Blaster8266 with working inner sound board and LED blast effects.


The bright mobile light washed out some of the scorch marks applied to the armor so I added a few shots of the individual pieces for review. I took the photos with my sling off the rifle to better show the armor but did include a follow up picture the sling attached per CRL.

Thanks Tony!

This has been a blast to build and it was awesome to finally get it done and wear it around. Very light and easy to move around in.

Hey Charles! Awesome work with two costumes in one week for EIB! Obviously you had this planned!

CRL and EIB Application Requirements:

All required photos have been posted. For the record, a "bucket off" pic is not required for EIB applicants. Only for basic approval at the Garrison level. 

​All components of your HWT are present to qualify for EIB. With pleasure I can say congratulations on your EIB approved HWT!!! 


Other-Armor Fit/Assembly:

I very nice overall base armor build to upgrade the FX to EIB level is the foundation of this costume. A very well detailed backpack as well! You hit the nail on the head in regards to the definition of light weathering. Just perfect.


Centurion Suggestions:

Sadly, the FX armor does qualify for Centurion status. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't  be proud to troop in this awesome costume! Maybe an armor upgrade is in your future, maybe not. Either way, you look great and your Garrison should be proud!
