I'm Back from the Outer Rim


Recommended Posts

Hey all!
I'm back!!!


I had to create a new profile — not even sure what happened but it's been so long and the site is all new and swanky that I suppose that's fine. 

(if someone can get me 501st access that'd be great... if not/I'm currently not technically "active" then I understand)


My buddy is doing a Rogue One Vader and that got me interested in doing some TK armor again... but this time, Rogue One!  So I spent a few hours last night self-documenting the differences between Rogue One stormtrooper armor in comparison to ANH, ESB & ROTJ. Far more things than I thought or knew and all, are what I think, are big improvements in regards to movement, functionality and general appearance. Like I told Tye "Wolfman", I'm sure there's probably a thread on here but I wanna observe first so I know if it's wrong. Hahaha


Looking forward to posting what I find out and my "build" threads.


In the meantime... if you haven't seen him... check out my rebellion self.

Welcome back to the fleet, Trooper! 

There a plenty of differences for the Rogue One suits but I think it will be worth the effort!

Looking for to watching your build.

Hi Noel and welcome back to FISD!  Yes we may have a new looking forum around here but I'm sure you will find it's the same old rocking party. Take a look around and you will find the info you're looking for. The Rogue One CRLs will hopefully be finished soon.  Have fun!

Hi and welcome aboard future Trooper! 


Have a read in the “Getting Started-Read this First” section, as there is some really good info in there for new members.


Then, have a read in “Costuming and Builds” section to discover other troopers who are building (or have built) the same armor as you! Really good tips, examples, pictures, previously answered questions, and successes here.


In addition to looking at all the various build threads, I highly recommend checking out the “Advanced Tactics” section where you can see examples of those who have taken their armor to the next levels of screen accuracy (EIB and Centurion).  I’d recommend that you aim to build to one of the certification levels, as TK’s look their best at these levels. It's really not hard to acquire EIB or Centurion, and it’s best to do during your build rather that after.


If, and when, you’re looking for other bits –and-pieces, accessories, boots, blasters, electronics, etc., be sure to check out the “Imperial Commissary/PX” section for items for sale, project runs, and for other stuff that most of the troopers use.


Also, make contact with your local Garrison. They’ll help guide you through the process of becoming a member of the 501st, and may have local Armor Parties in the works where you can get hands-on build advice and guidance, not to mention meet members of your future Garrison.


So, start a build thread here on FISD; post lots of pictures and questions. We are all here to help you out and to make sure you look your best, and represent the 501st as best as possible.


All the best on your TK journey!
