Dropping in from Canada

Hello FISD! The name's Tyler. I've recently come across the 501st through the internet, and I remembered seeing something like that before and dreaming of doing it too, I love the idea of helping others, just by loving a franchise. It's awesome! Joining the 501st is a little dream of mine, and I was searching around on the website and came to here, I quickly realized that these forums were the first step into becoming a fully fledged 501st member and Stormtrooper, I get giddy thinking about it, heh. Anyways, just saying "Hello there" to you all, and may the force be with you.

 

(Hopefully in the future) TK-40151

You can find a list of garrisons here, normally you can sign up on their forum and introduce yourself, most have a recruit area https://www.501st.com/members/displayUnits.php

Hi Tyler 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 armor! 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” 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! :dancing-trooper:

Thanks for the advice and tips on where to find the various threads and all that, I'll definitely check out those build tips and *certainly* start my own build thread once I start on my own set! 

p.s love the dancing stormtrooper you got XD
