  1. 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.
  2. GRAN FotografĂ­a hermano!!! Felicidades! Abrazo. Saludos.
  3. Got that boss. Hope someone raises their hand soon. Saludos.
  4. Awesome shots! Thx Paul!! Saludos.
  5. No problem!! Saludos
  6. 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.
  7. 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:
  8. 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
  9. @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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. No need to apollogy boss... your enthusiasm is what has us striving for the nxt big thing here... Lets just keep im mind why we want this done, what was the idea you brought to start up, and we will be fine. Here are two ideas... 1. What if we get a new "developing" status for the CRL to be publish as it is by the Legion Command, so that any trooper willing to build it can follow it. And only after the first build make it official? Cause I think the GML and Legion Command are also interested in seeing this happen, but a little burocratic help would be very helpful. 2. Just throwing ideas here... what about Paul or Mark lending us a ROTJ armor to weather (with washable paint) so we can take pictures of it... it could be a project where the britannia patrol members could collaborate with the makers to finish a SETD if only for the pictures. After all the "hate" I gave to the ROTJ look, and specially the SETD, i have to say that I now find the ROTJ armor very appealing and i teresting... (not so much the SETD). I dont have the money to afford a new set, otherwise I would jump in to tackle it. But maybe there are other troopers that would/could just to be the only person in the world with that particular armor and prop. I mean, even if ugly, done right, this is a great project and a real challenge for all and any armor prop builder... The one and only SE TD armor... if only I have a thousand pounds to spare. What do you think? Saludos.
  13. I realize I'm late here but I have a few points to say. -why are we adding a new SE TD??? Is it to make it easy for others to just switch from Any configuration to SE and back?
  14. Don't worry much! Most armors, and specially the best ones, have no trim lines or nothings. This is one thing that makes this hobby fun! And... as said, no, it wont be a problem for your clearance, deployment or SWAT badge. And anyone elsewhere that says so, is just wrong. Although most of us are against recasting for the most, the 501st has no an official stand or policy against or in favor of it. No worries bro. About it being a recast of an original ANH armor, unless it is an RS Propmasters armor, I can asure you, it was not. No one owns moulds from an ANH armor other than them. And no one in the hobby making armors own a full an ANH original armor. Let us know if you need anything. And post pictures! We love pictures. Saludos.
