  1. Awesome work at 82 troops! Thanks for patrolling the streets and representing the MEPD.
  2. Thank you sir and I am excited too! The SE sandies are based off of the ROTJ TK so the costume is different than the ANH version. I am excited for the weathering too!
  3. Troop #22 Date: 2019/10/31 Event: Fall Carnival Canyon Location: Canyon, TX
  4. You are almost to 50 troops! Keep up the hard work!
  5. Wait till you get introduced by your host as the "dirty" stormtrooper...
  6. Awesome photos and event brother! Keep up them patrols!
  7. Awesome photos! Keep up the patrols.
  8. Why I am not surprised by this. You are too much bro! Stop being so awesome and share the wealth with others.
  9. Congrats on your deployment rookie! I look forward to patrolling the streets with you.

  11. The ROTJ TK is complete. I am just awaiting the backpack and then I will weather the TK. I am so glad to have completed this phase of the costume! Onward to the infamous Special Edition Sandtrooper!

  13. I will do that and thank you sir. I also plan to put some in the forearms as well.
  14. I am working on the blaster tomorrow, waiting on the backpack so I can weather everything evenly, and the helmet. I am almost there!

  16. There is an another thread on the SE research that I used as basis for my research and I also used the one on the whitearmor.net. Here is what I have found and I hope this further helps to complete the CRL and possible PO and SWAT reference builds. Anyone else may add on any information they believe will help any future SE Sandtroopers obtain Police Officer or SWAT status. Starting from left to right: Trooper 1: wearing RotJ TK boots, missing ammo pouch from belt, no rivets on the belt for holster, standard RotJ suit, ANH pauldron, no foam padding inside shoulder bell, RotJ E-11, and standard backpack. Trooper 2: small separation of white U-trim around the thigh, no white U-trim on the bottom of the chest plate, RotJ boots, ANH pauldron, no foam underneath shoulder bells, standard RotJ suit, no rivets on belt for holster, RotJ E-11, and standard backpack. Trooper 3: RotJ armor suit, ANH TK boots, foam padding underneath shoulder bell, RotJ E-11, neoprene or rubber pauldron, not sure on the rivets on the belt, I believe the last two troopers are using a 1st version of the backpack (need to confirm with Crooknight). Trooper 4: weathered heavily compared to the other four, neoprene or rubber pauldron, RotJ armor suit, RotJ E-11, ANH TK boots, not sure on the rivets, and 1st version backpack (?) The trooper above is Ted Gagliano and he did not move in this scene and is the fifth SE sandtrooper. He is using a RotJ armor suit, has rivets on the belt from where the holster should have been, backpack, RoTJ E-11, and no TK boots (wearing shoes) as he did not want to move in the sand. See photo below. I plan to update as I find more information, but I believe this is all that there is on the SE sandtroopers. Also, I truly believe that there should not be any lower level or basic level of the SE troopers that does not require RotJ armor. ALL SE Sandtroopers MUST have RotJ TK armor build following their CRL. Thank you!
  17. I have glued the body, the thighs, shoulder bells, and the arms. I will try them on tomorrow and get more photos. I am just waiting on the backpack and the blaster. I am also needing to complete the helmet and get this armor all nice and dirty.
  18. Here are more photos from today's work. I almost there!

  20. Here are the latest photos and I am installing the belt on the armor tomorrow. A HUGE shout out to Paul of TM for the kit and for making this as easy as possible. I appreciate him very much and recommend him for the RotJ kit.
