I have started modifying my 50 gallon Husky Tote Box for my TK Armor, will continue adding things as I can.


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am freshly minted TK-74759, and I have a separate 50 gallon bin for Kylo, so I wanted to make this bin my TK/Trooper bin.  First thing I did was strip the stickers, painted it white (masked handle/wheels/tires).  I have TK Name Plates and 501st Decals on the way.  I also would like to add some lights/switches and OLED type displays on this thing.  I also want to 3D Print a rod to hold up the removeable drawer on the extended handle, and I'll show that design here eventually.  I added Imperial cog wheel covers, and I have a black handle I'll be adding opposite the extending handle to aid in lifting the box into my truck.  I want my TK box to be unique.  Right now its pretty plain, but I'll try and keep up this thread with my progress.

 

To Do: 

1.  Add custom etched plates TKID/501st Legion Decal/Carolina Garrison Decals

2.  Add Black Handle Opposite extending handle.

3.  Add lights/blinkies/OLED?

4.  Design/3D Print a bracket to go across extended handles that will hold the removeable drawer...which contains my ICOMM

5.  I'll take any other suggestions!

goodness gracious Josh, that bin is a work of insanity!  I love it.  I could tinker on this thing forever for sure.  I also own Megtooth Sith Sabers, so I am familiar with neopixel animations, and open source soundboards to control them, and an OLED.  I think you have inspired me to incorporate a proffieboard into my rolling bin!  That will be insane!!!!!!  PS, check out my Proffie blaster thread here:  Proffieboard E-11 Build

Thanks a lot. Glad you like it. Your blaster project is very cool as well. I'm thinking of doing a similar E-11 thing with totally different hardware for another trooper friend. For sure you could use Proffieboard since you're familiar with it. It's way overkill really but would definitely get the job done. The Nano boards are just 8 bit atmega328s.

more stickers

 

Next step will be installing neopixel strips, a couple of OLEDs and maybe a speaker to play Imperial March!!!!  I'll add an external RCP, thinking about powering this with a 26650, and maybe have Death Star panel in lid back lit too.  I want this bin to be awesome.  I'm going to 3D print a bar to hold up the drawer in the extended handle.
