  1. AWESOME! Great work! Great community! And a question here, for the WTF's raffle, should I contact Walt via facebook or is there a better way to enter? Saludos.
  2. Hey Paul! I remember that chat we had a few years ago, when I said doing a Centurion TK was way more work than a TD. You told me all the extra work we put on the TD but know we just ignore cause we are used to it. You were right. And Well.. I would say, ANH TDs are still more difficult to build than most of the Legion characters... they are not easier to build than the SE TD. Less gear, less "specific" details different from a TK. So, its partially out of the box (as out of the box as any TK... and they are not really). But as I said somewhere else, I dont thing there no SE Sandtroopers because of available resources, found parts, kits, or references... there is not one single SE TD cause, well, so far no one has wanted to do one. Not enough anyway. Don't mean we should not have them, and anyone who wants one should be able to do it. But so far... Not much love for it. LOL! So, yes! I hope to see the first SE TD soon!! We need to see it, as a group we owe it to ourselves! I have been thinking in the back of my mind about building a McQuarry Sandtrooper sometime in the next 5 years. Hope to see a SE TD before that! HEHEHE! Saludos my friend.
  3. Sounds interesting. We have ANH TDs sans-packs, but only for Level 3. So, this is a window for a wider view... meaning, for ages the entry level CRLs have been based more on what the Legion believes should be each character, and less on how (and why) it actually appears on screen. At least, for the basic most popular characters. So, if we are shooting to include all kinds of stormtroopers with their own CRL from level 1... not only based on kind of armor or gear, but also weathering, this is something cool, interesting and exciting. Meaning that,weathered Endor Troopers should have a different CRL than regular ROTJ troopers... right? And, based on the deployment assumption, such deployed endor troopers should be part of the MEPD, not the FISD... Am I right??? I don't think I am for this, or against it... just saying that we are setting a different standard with this propositions... What do all you guys think? @Daetrin @dutchy What are your thoughts? Saludos
  4. Woody, you have claimed Lee is Chris brother. I think after Lee's post it's fair to admit they are not siblings. If you could please clarify that in your original post, it would be appreciated. About your request to thoroughly discuss this before removing other statements, I would ask you just to really start taking Lee's post in consideration while we have Chris postings. Lee, I think you have a valid case and posture. But as far as I understand, we do need to read Chris declarations and really start a discussion here to clear all what needs to be clear. I don't want to point fingers at all and won't take sides here. I'm really sorry if you are being signaled unfairly, but to help clarify this even more, could you go ahead and post pictures of your packs? I really don't think you should need to defend yourself to prove you are clear of anything. And I am sorry to ask you this. But hope you can help us here calarify all this as much as possible. To be honest, key declarations here will come from Chris but I don't think you should need them to keep your image clean. Facts shall speak the truth. Facts is what I asked woody and Chris. And, sorry about this but we don't have a choice, text and post by themselves are not enough to be consider facts. Facts we expect come from woody and Chris. But something backing up your facts Lee, would be very useful too. Again, I and the whole CS are trying our best to solve this within the detachment. Please let me know if I can do anything to help. And... also consider that the CS, even if will always keep it friendly and impartial, will act accordingly and make the decision that we might need to take. Whatever they might be. No doubt of it. I need to say too that Chris is aware of this post and issue, we are all expecting him to hopefully post soon and provide info, proof and answers. We will always look for the best interest of this community and its members. Saludos. Juan.
  5. GRAN FotografĂ­a hermano!!! Felicidades! Abrazo. Saludos.
  6. Got that boss. Hope someone raises their hand soon. Saludos.
  7. Awesome shots! Thx Paul!! Saludos.
  8. No problem!! Saludos
  9. They are screen grabs from a VH1 special about the SE. Don't know when the show actually run on tv. But I found the video o you tube. Apparently and for the date of the files, in 2011. There is only about 1 minute or so on the sandtroopers but enough material to helps us with the CRL Saludos.
  10. This is part of the same file I sent to the CS when we started working on the CRL. But now I realize I should have shared them with the whole community. So, I am posting them now... This are screen grabs I did from a VH1 documentary on SW Special Edition a few years ago. I found it on youtube. Cant remember the name but shouldnt be too difficult to find. It only spends a minute or minute and a half on Sandtroopers, but there are images there I had never seen before.... So... Here they are:
  11. Awesome! I'll post all my backpack backstage references for you... Cause I think that there is a grey canister there too. Maybe the same color as the ANH blueish grey. Don't know... Don't mean that you must change your pack, just wanted to share my references and maybe go deeper into some research to help you and the CRL. Hope that helps! Saludos
  12. @CrookKnight Pack looks really cool Bro! Congrats! Great work. So far, the only mayor difference I can see is that the top "canister" or part of the "mortar tube" (if we can asume that is what it is), should be white, according to my references... Here a a couple LFL archives and behind the scenes shots. Hope they help! @troopermaster THX Paul! This is the kind of expert assessment we need to make this really accurate. So... I was talking to Justus and the Command Staff, and thought that probably TE derived armor, "re-engineered" back into a Tour suit could be closer to SE than full ROTJ. I can see some similar ways of strapping the armor to that in RTOJ armor. No elastic around biceps on shoulder bells. Round trimming of shoulder bells. I think drop boxes are wider in shape than ANH, but maybe they are not. And yes, left thigh has a round top... but then I saw one trimmed trooper with a thigh trimmed and put together differently. Should be just how it was assembled, but I think it shows it is not 100% ROTJ armor or even moulds. Shoulder bells do look ROTJ to me. But then, I dont know Tour armor, just TE derived. So, dont know if the Tour Shoulder bells look like this too. I know TE derived don't. At least, not when trimmed ANH style. Helmet was probably refurbished from ROTJ, or recast from the same molds... and weathered in location (just as with ANH)... And boots, in the mean time while Troopermaster can find the hard drive. I have this, its not a close up but I think it does show quiet clearly they had black soles... What do you all think?? This is very exciting!! Saludos. Juan
  13. Ive seen some reference shots where boots appear to have black soles... I would thought they had used the same, but it appears that they had black sole boots instead of white ROTJ ones. Ill try to post picts when at my computer. Saludos.
  14. One more question... Whats the main difference with a TE/TE2 armor and return of the jedi? Trimming of course, and the helmet... adding the whitebrubber trim, and then? Also, new boots... Can it be made to look like it originally was, Tour/ ROTJ? Saludos.
