TK-42128 Requesting TLJ First Order Stormtrooper Centurion Status (KB) Approved 7th


Recommended Posts

ok, I’m gonna hate to do this.  Even though I am getting the proper rail in a few days and I will upload that photo.  I am going to post this here for you.  
 

I spoke to a friend and confirmed it.  Some had rails and others did not.  He was on all three movies.  And the screen used ones I saw here including rogue one, not all had rails.  
 

therefore, that should not hold up my approval and I’m requesting your grace and approval of this application.  Furthermore it was not listed in rhe crl.   And it had not been requested of any other centurion TLJ even though there are only a few others.  
 

You can also see an example of a silver rear plate.  So I would like to return my plate to a silver one.  It is my preference.  It’s a silver plate with a black strap rectangle ring.

let me say this.  I will get the rail and attach and upload it.  But I think that should be optional and I will do it in a few days.  But that should in no way hold up rhe approval.  I will do it so we have that option here.  I am also found to return my rear plate with the D to silver as I just think that is much more attractive and it matches what I have seen.  Although I will say rhe ones I saw were actually missing their D’s 

 

I hope this respectful challenge to the request is considered and I am approved.  Even though in a few days I will have the modified blaster pic uploaded

Hi Ardeshir, and thank you for your Centurion application! 

 

 

CRL and CENTURION Application Requirements:

All required photos have been submitted, and on behalf of the entire D.O. staff we are pleased to welcome you to the rank of CENTURION.  Congratulations!  :salute:

 

Other-Armor Fit/Assembly;

In this area we review observations made by your fellow troopers and the DO team.  Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor.  Note that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions.

 

 

 

We would suggest changing out 2 items:

-As you have seen in your Executioner application, we noticed that the picatinny rail is a bit long, should only have 2 raised sections (ribs) in the center and the holes are close to the ends as seen in the reference images below. 

 

                                                                                                                                                   Reference images

-The D-ring you presently have is an actual D-shape as opposed to a more square shape.

 

                                                                                                           Reference image

Congratulations on your 7th Centurion. :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:

Congratulations once again Ardeshir.

 

 

 

For anyone following and using this for future reference for their own applications as many do, Ardeshir is correct this is not currently a CRL requirement but may very well be in future once the TLJ / TROS CRL is finalized, thread here. Some good examples of differences of blaster details in each of the movies can be found in that thread, some interesting combinations also used in TROS.

 

In regards to the inconsistency of details, we see this in a lot of movies so a "generalized overall look" is used, in other words what most troopers had been seen with. We know some blasters from TFA had been used as well as in TROS, but references are used of what is generally seen and produced for that particular movie. 

 

One of the main images with close up and used as a reference is the execution scene, notice this troopers F-11D has the light rail and also the white rectangle ring (D ring) (so does the trooper on the other side, image below), which many others also had. BUT there are instances of other variations, this is called a "Mr Nostripes" situation, seen in the movie but a one off (or two or three) like "Mr Nostripes" in ANH.

And the only instance of a light mounted from a LFL display. Interestingly it also had a mount on the other side just under the barrel for a sling.

Personally I think the light was a little overkill, which LFL may also have thought so not used, the blaster already has a light mounted in the front just under the muzzle. 

 

Apologies for derailing ;)
