  1. Last weekend we were trooping a birthday party. We were setting up and I installed my sound system (Aker, mic, and an iPod Shuffle that plays my radio chatter) like normal. Right as I power everything up and turn on the chatter I discovered, much to my and the rest of the troopers' amusement, that I'd apparently used this shuffle for something else earlier in the week* and forgotten to reset the playlist to my chatter- So, what came blasting out of that Aker amp? Jimmy Buffett! LOL! Needless to say, I went without the background audio for that troop. *I guess I'd used this shuffle in my battle against the never-ending snow. I like to shovel/snowblow to Jimmy.
  2. Baseball Rubbing Mud Method?

    I'm not familiar with the method in question, but I personally wouldn't do anything that might be damaged by a bit of rain. Real mud (unless it's mixed with some sort of fixing agent) seems like it would be both fragile in terms of bumps and general wear as well as a major risk of getting washed off at the slightest bit of moisture.
  3. TD build for my wife - Anovos conversion

    She looks great! And can I just add WOOOHOOO for another working stiff in the ranks! I always love to see another black pauldron trooper hitting the mean streets of Mos Eisley.
  4. Hasboro Toy Shop - Sandtrooper and Dewback Black Series

    I got mine at Target the morning everything went out. Our local Walmarts also got the dewback (but nothing else from the 6" series, oddly). Some people have had luck locally with gamestop as well. Even amazon has the dewback in stock right now- and at regular retail rather than scalper-markup https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Black-Dewback-Sandtrooper/dp/B072MPB6H5/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1524098852&sr=8-1&keywords=black+series+dewback
  5. Hasboro Toy Shop - Sandtrooper and Dewback Black Series

    I picked mine up on Friday. The dewback is really awesome. The only downer about it all is that the pauldron is, in fact, grey- repeating the old mistake from the 90s. Overall awesome though.
  6. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I'm partial to Rothco's boonie myself. They're cheap and they can take a beating. Although I do miss my old one with the map pocket in the top.
  7. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I'd say if we had a template laying out the seam on the hat (between the cap and brim) showing where to attach the patch that would be ideal. I prefer one particular brand of boonie hat. Although I'm sure plenty of troopers would be happy to have somebody else sew theirs up.
  8. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I like the solid color look too, but the question is this- Would we go for one standard color as the unofficially official hat? And if so, what color? I've personally already got the OD Green and the Beige, but I do think the Coyote would be a good look for us in general.
  9. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    Sure, will do. Any idea of what sort of badge we'd like on the hat? It will help him getting a quote per/unit together.
  10. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I know the chap who makes the "Filthy Dewback" caps, if we're interested in a run, I'm sure he'd be game to producing them for us.
  11. elastic connecting forearm and bicept

    My forearms are snug enough that I don't need any elastic or snaps at all. They sometimes roll a bit, but they never creep down. Then again, I do have Popeye arms, so that might be part of the issue.
  12. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I'm late to the discussion, but my vote would definitely be for a bucket/boonie style hat. Even out of our buckets we gotta protect our ugly mugs from those two suns. https://www.amazon.com/Tri-Color-Desert-Camouflage-Military-Boonie/dp/B002MZPQWS/ref=cts_ap_1_vtp
  13. 2018 Election Results

    Well done to both candidates. I look forward to a productive 2018
  14. BBB has arrived! A little short for a sandtrooper.

    NICE! I wish I could convince my wife to suit up- she's luckily just about the perfect size for a standard issue TK. I look forward to seeing the build you two do.
  15. Guilty as charged. Big stack of ABS for strength, then a panel sealing off the hollow back of the diamond for looks.
