Yosh's R1 TK Build

Recommended Posts

What's up everybody,

I've fallen in love with the Rogue One TK. The thing is I already have a Sandy and for me it's a debate of if I really want another Stormtrooper costume or not. I posted a picture on Instagram a little while ago with the hot toys 1/6 figure Rogue one TK side by side with the Sandy and asked which one people like better. With an overwhelming response I got everyone saying OT. I just can't help but go against the mainstream as in my opinion they look so cool! I'm dying to know how much more comfortable it is compared to my Sandy. I haven't ordered the kit yet as I feel that my wife will have a heart attack when she finds out. But soon

I'm putting the finishing touches on the Black Series helmet. Hopefully I'll post more pictures soon

One can never have to many Stormtrooper suits:smiley-sw013: Would you go for the TK since you have a TD or the jedha-trooper with the backpack?:)

 I also really like the RO TK but I´ll wait and hope for an ABS version...but I will go for the "soft pack" version:)

Good luck with the build:salute:

I  finished up bondoing sanding and painting the back. I'm pretty happy with the paint match but of course it's not a hundred percent. Weight is a very hard color to match as there are so many different shades of white.

I drilled holes in the existing hovi mic tips and inserted screens. I wasn't sure if it was going to work but it turned out pretty good. I also replace the screen in the back of the frown and painted the underneath of the brow black. Definitely the hardest part was cutting out the tube stripes. I  decided to use a Dremel and file it down. I  saw in one build  thread a guy had success by heating up an exact -o knife, but when I tried it I wasn't confident enough.

Pictures aren't showing up (for me at least).

 

You could always try a local paint shop, they're usually able to get close matches of paint, and many can do so with rattle cans as well.

I can see them on my phone and I just checked on my laptop and they show up there as well.

I have had costume colors mixed before but $20 a can is a bit much. The white I have is close enough and will do.

So I decided to keep the original conection points so that everything lines up as it was intended to.

You can see I used the original lenses and just cut them out, E6000 the new lenses behind the old ones. I like the idea of being able to  take out the lenses  if I want to and replace them. I also put a piece of foam at the bridge of the nose to help with comfort. 

 

I'm pretty sure these helmet mods are only interesting to someone who is or has worked on one of these helmets.

By the way, does anyone know the difference between the Crystal Patrol and the Jedha Patrol, I know one has a soft pack and one has a hard pack but which ones which and why? On the hot toys 1/6 scale figs  they both say Jedha patrol but the only difference is one has a TK number

Maybe we will see when the CRL is released

I think the main difference is really the packs. There may be some differences in weathering but its all the same armor. I think maybe the one with the smaller TD-like pack has more pauldron options? Maybe? I am not sure. 

 

We have a few build threads for both of these pack over at the MEPD (thats where these trooper will be living) our CRL is in progress. We are in search of a CRL model to finalize them.

I'll certainly throw my hat in the ring if you haven't found anyone by then

The smaller pack is the Jedha patrol, and the crystal one is the big pack with the holes in the back ;)

That's what I've been seeing online aswell, but where is the reference for that? Or is it, they had to call it something and someone just adopted that?

 

Yesterday I saw there will be one crl for the jedha patrol which seem like it will include the option of both packs

Yup Thats correct. Lucasfim is usually pretty loose when naming troopers, to them everything is a Stormtrooper haha. As far as the 501st goes, both packs for this trooper will be in one CRL on MEPD. With options for both packs in the CRL (like how it is with the ANH Sandtrooper packs). This is the plan for now, but may change once we get things finalized.

This past week I got my boots ordered, pauldron ordered, and 40% down on the kit. Now it's just a waiting game 

 

On another note, I'm having trouble finding good quality, close up photos of the ab details. Mostly I have the Celebration photos and there's always a blaster in the way. So if anyone wants to help a brother out, please post here or message me

These are the best that I have.

The first I think is from Celebration, the second from the "walking through the water" scene that never was and final two are from the visual guide.

Boots from Imperial boots and pauldron from Trooperbay. It will most likely be another month before I see any of it. As long as I can get this TK approved before Solo premiere

I got something cool today! I pretty sure it's the first all white leather pauldron that trooperbay has made.

20171226_084817_1.jpg

Also got my First order shoes in. A little comparison to my sandy shoes.

20171226_084857_1.jpg

My R1 TK kit should be in tomorrow. Can't wait!

IV decided to fill in the indents with bondo and sand them till they look right.

It's a really long process and I'm not 100 percent happy with how it looks, but it is better than before. I should be finished painting tomorrow
