Re: TK boots options ???

Imperial Boot has an odd ordering system. They only accept orders for a week. See their website for their schedule. When that week is up, they start manufacturing. You receive your boots like a month later.

Clamp 2 halves of a light saber around the bottom of support posts? Paint the rest of the post in light saber colors?

Re: Looking to be 501 material!

Hello there!

There are plenty of Stormtrooper kits out there that I don't know too many printing one at this time. We even have a garrison member who makes kits. If you need help please reach out

Re: Hello!

Hello there! What kind of characters were you thinking? 501st is fun. You only have to dedicate 1 day a year to maintain active status. For a multi day event, wear your 501st for 1/2 day and go with your freelance the 2nd 1/2 day. A lot of us do GI Joe, Marvel, video game characters, Ghostbusters, A...

Re: Shiny and new

There are a number of troopers in the GR area but C19 probably has slowed down planned activities

Re: New Shiny

ANH Stormtrooper here.

For gloves I use some from Home Depot. They have some sort of white printing on the back side but it's not issue as it's covered up by the hand plate. If it really bothers you, use a Sharpie to black it out.

Re: Cases for Armor transport/storage

The limiting factor is your vehicle. I have heard many stories of people who cannot fit their large totes into the backseat or trunk of a passenger car. I have no problem storing a Stormtrooper with helmet and a bunch of accessories inside the 50g Husky. You will learn how to pack your stuff pretty ...

Re: Iron Man/Spider Man Needed

I don't have Spiderman or Iron man but if they are willing to take a TK I can probably do it depending on the date and time. Also keep in mind one cannot drive in a TK so a changing place (even a small one) is needed. I am close enough to Warren and it turns out through business and personal family ...

Re: TK Helmet fan system recommendations?

I have Troopacoola fans. The Troopacoola fan installation is actually a great setup because the switch is where you can reach it easily with bucket on. Switch is mounted solid. To be honest I don't use the fans at all and leave the battery out 99% of the time. If I do I switch them on for 30 seconds...

5'9" isn't going to work. The pant legs would cover your feet like a onesie and the crotch will be halfway to your knees

Re: Tie Pilot Seeking feedback

The collar picture of the flightsuit says XL on the hanger. Not sure if the flightsuit is also XL. If you are interested I have an XL brand new except for a test fit from Cosplay Sky. It is too large for me at 5’8” 185lbs. I’m guessing you need to be over 6ft for a good fit. Cosplay Sky is one of th...
