    All who is attending and interested: Hi, I've been tasked with reaching out to the various 501st detachments to facilitate the Galactic March at Celebration Chicago. I apologize for the late announcement of the details but the logistics have taken much longer than expected to iron out with the convention center, ReedPop, and LFL. Any questions or concerns please respond to this email. Hello everybody, we FINALLY have official details on the Galactic March at Celebration. Due to several logistical issues, we are unfortunately starting sign-ups for this event much later than anticipated. The Galactic March will take place on Saturday, April 13th at 3 PM. The parade will take place entirely within the building. Meet-up and then step-off. at the multi-club booth at 3 PM. Sign-up will be first come, first served at the link below. We will take the first 10 signups from each 501st and Rebel Legion detachment and 20 members each for MMCC, GA, DB, SG and TDE If you have access to a parade flag, we encourage you to bring it.

    Hey my fellow dirty dudes after seeing my fellow deployment officer Thomas´new Doopy build, I was so in for an upgrade of my own modded Doopy build. Here´s what it looked like at the beginning, it was indeed my very first E-11 build... and definitely a lot of room for improvement. Wasn´t very happy with the paintjob on the scope so I made a new one: But in the last weeks I completely reworked the whole blaster... wasn´t very easy to take it apart and sand it down. made a new trigger guard and scoperail: and added a lot of small details: also remodelled the backpart to emulate the original cast aluminum back with those seams: So the back was spraypainted in a silver colour while the rest of the blaster was spraypainted with a gunmetal and a light coat of chocolate brown and black. I then masked off certain areas to give it that used look with paintchips. Finally I gave it a new paintjob using the same wrinkle spray paint Thomas has already used in his build. I also added the wire wrapped in red cloth on the power cylinders. The counter is a real vintage Hengstler but has a plastic box at the front on which I have cut out the square in the middle. The mag is real too... with real wood! The cartridge ejection is made of metal bend and cut into shape... because only painting it silver wasn´t enough anymore. As I really want this to be the blaster of the Move Along Captain, I have also added the little greeblie on top of the scope... although I think that there might even be two of those greeblies according to the following picture. Let me now what you think. And here it is: And here´s a comparison shot between the Doopy and my real Sterling heavy metal build: Cheers!

    Hey everyone, last time I was on this forum I think was back in 2010 or something. I delved far too deep into the Boba realm and I'm dipping my toes back in the trooper 'water'. Looking forward to going through lots of build threads and reference pictures. Sidenote, if anyone has an untrimmed RS armor kit for sale or trade (with or without helmet) please let me know. I have a fully finished ESB Boba Fett helmet I'd like to swap out for it. Thanks!!

    The S-trim goes on the helmet to finish off the opening where you stick your head through.

    I had this project finished for a while but completely forgot to post this here as I was quite busy with work and writing reviews. So here it is. I think everybody knows now that I´m a huge fan of the Move Along Helmet and searching for the perfect helmet to base this on. I was already quite happy with the my RS build but it´s still just an ABS helmet which won´t tick the right boxes. I had to have an HDPE helmet and since RS doesn´t offer them anylonger or at least not as a kit, I had to go on searching. I´ve found Anon Stormtrooper from Australia, who has been offering HDPE helmets, now unfortunately he wasn´t anylonger but Chris who ran Anon Stormtrooper was so kind to have a look around his garage and found an unfinished helmet and sold it to me. The helmet had already been assembled but the eyes and teeth hadn´t been cut out yet, this is what it looked like: I had to take it apart and adjust the assembly and after cutting out the eyes and teeth it looked like this: and here´s the final project after painting and weathering always followed by a shot from the movie: I´m really happy and feel like I have found my (almost) perfect helmet. Now I just have to adjust the rest of the gear to match this helmet.

    Hey Dutchy! Thank you. I'm pretty happy to start this chapter in my life. Always wanted to be a trooper! My daughter is 6, and in love with the costumes, and the idea of daddy being a trooper. She hasnt seen the movies yet, but I was 5 when I 1st saw episode 4,5,6,and I literally watched the movies almost every day until I was about 10. So I think it time for her lol. I joined my local garrisons forum yesterday, so ill be asking them and you guys a whole lot of questions! As for a kit. I'm looking into authenticprops. I would like ABS, I'm about 5',7", 155 lbs. Has anyone here delt with authenticprops here? Or have suggestions where to get a kit from? I would like it untrimmed.

    Waaayyyy better! Great update, Urs! I’m personally am no big fan of the major paint chips but more of the subtle scratches and dimples but that’s just my personal flavor! Beside my personal taste on this behalf the Blaster looks really great!

    I would try to do what you suggest but definitely start on the right shoulder as this side will be covered by the pauldron anyway... Otherwise before doing that you should try to contact the maker of your armor first, maybe he can offer you a chest/backplate solo or even better.with shoulder bells, that way you could also build a bust to display your helmet... Colordifferences shouldn’t be a problem, it will be hidden by the weathering!

    It would be a neat way to distinguish those that work hard for SWAT and such. Anybody can get a MEPD patch, but special rockers would set us apart. I'm all for having a little extra flash to showcase personal exploits and achievements, especially when it comes to our own little corner of the legion!

    Welcome Craig. You have defiantly come to the right place for information on Sandys. If you are looking in to actually forming your own armor parts vs buying a kit, I would strongly encourage you not to. The armor is for the most part vacuum formed ABS plastic. To do this on your own requires you to sculpt a mold, cast a buck and the finally form the plastic. Then you need to trim, assemble and fit the armor to you. It's an insane amount of work, with lots of research, trail and error and a steep learning curve. I have a AM Armor kit and have zero complaints with his work. Take a look around here and over at whitearmor.net for a ton of build threads and advice on all the different manufactures. Also if your local garrison has meet and greets or build parties, go to them. You will be inspired to move forward and meet some amazing people. Best of luck to you. Steve

    I'm with you Bobby. When I was building my armor and backpack, I had those page bookmarked and looked at them FREQUENTLY. Apologies for the delay getting them back up. Hopefully future generations will use them as much as you and I did!
