Re: Hello Hello from Livonia

Thanks a ton for the offer, I possibly may take up the support, as this is my first time with this kind of large project. :) Most of the equipment has came in, the last things I'm waiting for is Boots, Gasket and then the kits themselves for the armor, helmet and E-11. Cool. I'll be interested to k...

Re: Looking for damaged TK parts for deathtrooper build.

I think I will keep my FX bucket to build as a display only piece, but I can send you pictures of my other damage and unused TK parts if you are still looking. I am finally cleaning up basement work area from armor building. Lots of unused abs lying around. Are you looking for a full belt or just th...

Re: Selling Sandtrooper kit

I can tell you that the legs do not look like FX. I just got my FX kit circa 2005 approved. The legs do not look like that. There were several versions of FX thighs. The originals were the GF thighs, then the barrel thighs, then the AM/NE, followed by the AM2.0 (but I can't remember if the thighs c...

Are you willing to sell blaster separate? Is it approved?

DB = Database

When we received an event request it is initially listed as UC. Once someone commits to being the Event Coordinator (EC), the event is confirmed and added to the event database.
Thanks for clarifying!

Event nomenclature question

I am trying to figure out what {UC] vs {DB] means in front of an event? I notice that UC seems to be associated with charities and DB with appearances at comic conventions. Can someone clarify further? I haven't been able to find explanation in the boards anywhere.

Re: I just submitted application to 501st website....

Did you email those pictures to whomever requested them (GML)? Remember that the "pre-approval" thread on FISD is an informal place to get critiqued before submission and is not a part of your submission for approval. I did email them directly to the GML as well. I was just updating the thread here...

I just added some updated pics to my FISD TK pre-approval thread. I fixed the items mentioned I last email sent. I realize that you guys went from MCCC to holiday weekend back to back.

Can you provide pics and process to build your fan system? Or is there a link somewhere?

So, I just submitted application to 501st website. I also posted in the pre-approval area of the whitearmor.net. I met some you guys at Motor City Comic Con yesterday.

I have a build in progress, but I am not sure you want to post pictures from mine. I have an old FX kit I bought in 2005, that I am finally going to get done by Motor City Comic Con well... at least everything but bucket and I would be happy.

I dug up a photo from when I was at the same point as you. Here's the side view of what my armor looked like before cutting an angle on the butt plate, and putting everything together for approval.
