    Thanks. I was holding off dyeing mine until I saw which way the crl would go. Looks like I need to buy some dye

    I agree the bandolier and packs should be optional.

    Fair enough, I'm a big believer in consistency over crls with shared components. I'd be happy to take pics of my shoulder bridges attached to the back / chest.

    Well, to look at it from another angle: does the wording about the shoulder bridges being inserted into slots at the back and under tabs on the chest even need to be a level 2 or 3 requirement? I'd argue that it is a very distinctive part of the armour (one of the more obvious differences between R1 and OT) and should be a requirement for basic. In addition there is currently only 1 maker of this armour anyway and while others are in the works I believe they all have this method of attachment.

    Wouldn't we use the same wording already in the Rogue One TK and Jedha Sandtrooper crls (since it is the same armour)? Level 1: "They may be affixed with Velcro or adhesive. Level 2: blank Level 3: "These shall be inserted behind the chest tabs and into slots of the back plate" I really think we"ll struggle to get a screenshot showing the indent on the handplate, they just aren't on screen long enough. We know it's there because it is R1 armour but as for actually seeing it....

    I can't rember having seen it written down anywhere official. I believe the Solo visual guide just refers to Stormtroopers on Mimban (I'm at work so cant check).

    While we're nitpicking: Mimban Trooper? Or Mimban Stormtrooper?

    That same guide refers to the flashlight on the blaster as a “mist cutting chemical glow rod”. sometimes I think those guides just try to make “new” names for the sake of having a bubble of text to add

    I think they can use either the E11 (Rogue One version) or the E10. I’m guessing you could reuse the E11 from the Jedha Trooper? I have pics of an E10 that I can send through.

    I think you’re referring to the Solo visual guide. However “blast shield” is consistent with the name already given to similar parts on the shoretrooper and combat assault tank driver.

    I’ve never actually seen it referred to with a specific name. I suspect it was made as part of the shield by the prop dept rather than a “found part”. Maybe just “oval shaped bolts”? also, on the available blast shields I’ve seen the bolts are molded onto it rather than being the thing that actually attaches the shield to the helmet. perhaps wording like (the shield) “has the appearance of being attached to the helmet using oval shaped bolts as per attached pic”?

    So if I'm understanding you correctly you wouldn't need a pack for basic but for level 2 you would, then for level 3 you can take the pack off again? I have to say I hope this isn't the case for the Mimban Stormtrooper as those with packs are only seen very briefly. The only 2 clearly seen onscreen Mimban Stormtroopers (the ones who throw Han to "the beast"), the promotional materials and even action figures all have no pack. Unlike the sandie I'd argue the pack is not an iconic part of the armour and having it as an optional item is more in keeping with the movie. Just my opinion.

    The pack should be an optional, definitely not required. As you say, there are far more seen without one than with one.

    No "clean" Mimban Stormtroopers were seen on screen (or any other "canon" media). So in my opinion that shouldn't be an option. By way of precedent Anovos also make a clean tank trooper helmet, however the crl specifies "heavily weathered" as a requirement.
