All-In-One TK ANH Stunt Index of Resources by MaskedVengeance

Recommended Posts



This is an All-In-One compilation of various resources for ANH Stunt Stormtrooper builds which will hopefully be helpful to prospective troopers as you get started and begin your research. Many TKs over many years have spent countless hours documenting their tips, tutorials, and builds, and this index includes posts and links which have been helpful on my own journey to the 501st. Printable PDF documents are included with select posts. This index will be updated as additional resources are created and identified by troopers helping troopers.

This... is... phenomenal!  The amount of work that has gone into this borders on OCD, (which is what I love about it) :D.  GREAT job, Caleb!

Thanks for the kind words, friends! My hope is that other new builders (or perhaps veterans too) will find this a helpful resource for their TK journey. It represents much of the information that I've compiled for my own build, and I thought I'd pass it along! Aspiring Troopers helping aspiring Troopers!

Amazing job. I can not only imagine how much time it took to compile but also how much time future recruits will spend using it. I, for one, would have spent much time coming back to this thread. 

Any chance this might be pinned? Regardless, great work on it!

I'm glad to hear you guys have found this thread helpful! If definitely took a long time to compile, and it will ever be a work-in-progress to update as I continue to come across other resources. As for pinning, I believe that is up to certain staff members, and I've recently seen @Daetrin and @Ripper_L take such action, though I'm not sure what the criteria are. Either way, I'm glad this thread will be helpful to future builders!

There's no specific criteria we follow. But this thread here is definitely worth pinning! :)
Thanks a lot for the hard work!

Troopers! Just a quick note to remind everybody that I'm always on the lookout for new informative resources to add to this thread, so if you spot something not listed that may be helpful, send it my way! I definitely want to harness the hive mind for the ultimate goal of troopers helping troopers!

Ok, so I couldn't help but repost Luca's @Morgi recent mention of this post in his fantastic FISD meme thread. I'm glad that this compilation has been helpful enough to builders to garner mention in a meme. =)




Keep up the great meme work, Luca!



Thanks, Caleb, I appreciate the shout-out. Glad you like the meme! (And as if there was any way I was gonna skip over this thread when making memes about the FISD.)

Greetings fellow troopers!  I'm not one yet but this year will be the year that I get my armor and I'm looking forward to it.  A couple of questions after I have looked around the forums.  I'm a bigger guy so will be needing bigger armor.  I've tried to contact RT Mod but it appears his links and email address are no longer valid, does anyone have updated information for this company.  If not, I will probably go with AP as they look like they will be able to accommodate my sizing, I hope.  My biggest concern are the boots, I'll be in a size 15, any vendors listed go that high or do other bigger troopers have a recommendation on where to find boots?  Looking on imperial boots, the ones they have for trooper have a zipper and not the u shaped piece in the middle.  Is this acceptable for approval at the highest level?  Sorry for the length. Thanks for your help and this list.

Welcome trooper-to-be! Last I checked, Terry (Pandatrooper) had taken over the production of RT-Mod armor, but I’m not sure how much that operation got off the ground. I’m sure some others may have more information. Here’s the announcement from several years ago:


As for sizing, I think WTF may also have an armor kit for larger troopers, but as you said, AP also has a good one. Imperial Boots make a perfectly approval boot for TKs, which many of us wear. They’re the 421s, and I’m not sure which ones with the zippers you must have seen. Crowprops also makes TK boots, and they’re tailored to your size.


Looking forward to following along with you on your journey!

This would be a good one to add to the compilation, I did have a look but only one coffee so far so I may have missed it ;)

I like your thinking, Glen. I actually saw that a while ago but had never made the addition. Thread updated, so Joseph's love of sugru is now doubly represented on here. :laugh1:
