  1. Thank you both so much for the kind words and support. I've always done this for you guys and the troops we've led. [emoji173] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Brothers and sisters of the MEPD. I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for the support you have given to me and my command staff over the years. It has truly been an honor to stand beside you as we take on the galaxy and continued our search for those rascally droids. We have made so many great finds over the years and brought the costume to the best it's ever been. With my day to day operations taking control of my life, I thought it was best to turn over the keys and have the squad continue it's journey under new leadership. I'm very excited that Justus will be officially in the drivers seat as of March 1st. I know the group will embrace his leadership as you have done with mine in the past. I can't wait to see what the next chapter in our story will be. See you all in the battlefields my friends. Over and out Rick "Dirty Boy" Bates Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I am proud to be able to pass the keys to the castle over to you Justus. We've seen this Detachment grow over the years and I am confident it will continue to be the best in the galaxy. Also, I love the fact that the command staff isn't really changing much aside from a few promotions and adding on a few new troops. Awesome start to what I'm sure will be a great year for growth and friendship. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hello troops, We will be temporarily shutting the page down for a few days while we update. You can still use the Facebook page in the meantime and updates will be posted there. The goal is to be fully operational with a new format. This will eliminate a few of the issues you all have been dealing with. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  5. I use it and baseball mud. Looks fantastic
  6. no matter what i do.....it doesn't show errors.
  7. As long as there is no change in design you would be fine. If you were to slap the MEPD logo on a "Frauleins Skate Shop" and made a run of them, you'd be in violation of legion rules. Disney/LFL grants us permission to use Star Wars stuff as long as there is no financial gain or self promotion. Tricky stuff that they could pull the plug on at any time.
  8. You got it Justus Although there are outside sources with a common interest, they are in no way associated with the MEPD or 501st legion. Let's grow as one.
  9. Hey troops some information has surfaced recently and I just want to remind everyone that official 501st and MEPD logos, designs or likeness can not be used in conjunction with ANY other sources. Strict guidelines are put in place by the legion and we must follow them. Once an MEPD or 501st logo is placed on an item it becomes official legion property and permission to use must be approved in writing from the legion. For example: if you want to produce trading cards, they are all legion/Mepd or not. You can't use the legion/Mepd format and take personal liberties/logos with the design. For anything Sandtrooper....there's the MEPD....no other source for official 501st association. Hope that clears up any confusion.

    We are working towards a chronological order system with trooper ID #s assigned as they appear on screen.
  11. We need to just keep checking flea markets and antique shops....7 years of Ebay searching has given us nothing lol
  12. It's the exact size of the original. I forgot my original at work....will post side by side later.
  13. Hey troops, since I just love making stuff lol I decided to work on the gio canteen a while back. Goal was to replicate as close to original as possible. All my stuff is done by hand. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of 3D printers. Pretty happy with result.

    Thank you guys for your contributions.
  15. Best way I found was to drill two small holes on back of cistern (about 4mm down the tubes) and run a zip tie through. Doing it that little bit lower lessens the risk of cistern cracking in transit or wear.
  16. Awesome!! Congrats man and yes, it's still active.
