OCMANO - TK91973's Troop Log

Recommended Posts

Location: Seattle WA

Event; Symphony

Date: 10-27-2018

Garrison:  Titan

 

All set with my AM2.0 TK so first troop was to the Seattle Symphony Planets which they played some Star Wars. 

The Symphony Players did costumes even.

 

TubaPlayer actually played as Kylo Ren.  Impressive.

Did a walk out during the concert and had a spotlight on us.  Was pretty hard to see with a light in your face, but went really well.

Then did pictures with folks as it was letting out.  Really quick troop but was a good test run after I did some of the EIB modifications.

We even got mentioned in the local Classical Radio station the next morning.  I guess we made a impression on one of the announcers who was there that night.  :)

Had really bad rain all day and everyone was worried that it'd be a washout.  The rain letup just in time however!

Of course, rain isn't much concern to a TK.  Some of the other costumes might have had more problems.

Guarding the Photo Memories.  Might have some sensitive data in them.

An Ewok showed up and really wanted to get it's pictures.  Had to put it back into the Zoo.

It's a petting Zoo.

Boss showed up.  Saber looks really good at night.

Rode off in circles when it was all done.

Some creaking, but nothing broke when I got mounted.  Was a little worried I'd crack something, but it was all good!

First day of the Comic Con.  Did the morning Line Duty which was fun.  Then filled in for some Blast a Trooper (unfortunately no pictures from that yet).

The Garrison Titan Booth was really great!  First con I've done, and couldn't believe some of the Props.

Greg Smith from Garrison Titan.  He also did the Luke ANH Land Speeder.

Did it all from photographs, and I guess he got the scale almost spot on, at least according to a ex-ILM employee that came through our booth at ECCC.

 

He just got an Anovos kit so maybe he'll be doing a TK build on here soon.

Event: Mariners Baseball Star Wars Night

Date: 05-31-2019

Garrison:  Titan

 

This was a pretty big event, and had pretty good turn out.  The weather was a bit muggy, but once we got into the Stadium the breeze was real nice. 

A little smaller crowd turnout than last year, but that was probably because the Mariners were in a bit of a slump.

 

I'm the TK just to the back of Vader.  Luckily he was taller than I am.

Found some miniature versions.

Some were a little scared, but the Ewok always seemed to be able to get them to come for pictures.

Rebel sympathizer decided to point the finger at me.  Hope she enjoys the detention cell.

Found a General Grievous.

Only real issue I had was the garter system snaps on my right thigh kept popping loose when we would move.  Went ahead and just put some E6000 in the snaps so the straps stay on the thigh.  Don't really see a reason to remove the straps as they just velcro around the belt.

E11 just looks so small,  Might start packing the DLT-19 again in the future.

Event: Seattle Pride Parade

Date: 06-30-2019

Garrison:  Titan 

 

Another pretty large event for Garrison Titan!  I think we had the most members show up for a Pride Parade this year I think, but got no way to confirm that.  Just what the ol'timers were saying.  Was glad I could lend my support, almost ended up being one of two TK's but the word went out and we got a few more!  People REALLY love the TKs.

 

Didn't have a lot of color, but luckily some other TK had a flag I could borrow as a 'cape' and I got a sticker.  Will need to invest in some not too sticky colored tape for next time.

 

So we start by Seattle Center and suit up in a parking garage there, then 'take over' the Monorail to the parade.  Watching people on the Monorail and looking up at it is really fun.  They freak out.

Chewbacca has some height challenges, but he made it work.  I was very stupid and thought I'd show off that I could sit as a TK.  Oops, ended up with at least 3 cracks around my lower back and buttplate. 

 

48236772252_57e61e54bb_h.jpg

 

Boss wasn't too impress with my sitting.  Other passengers were pretty impressed with him!

I think someone brought a drone, but wasn't sure.  No idea how this was taken.

Teamed with another TK and did some rounds.  Lot's of Star Wars Fans, young:

Parade was a LOT of fun.  Kind of goes by in a blur and with a crowd that big, you really kind of get intimidated and a little confused.  Some of the other's that had done it before seemed to know what to do, so just copied them a lot of the time.

Mission accomplished.  Hung out at the end with some of the remaining TKs and let people get some pictures on the way out.  Was tons of fun and weather wasn't super hot.

Probably the largest event I've been to so far.  Was pretty wild.  Needed a cheesy pose with the cape.  : )
