    Since I suggested it (not at the meeting) I had to vote yes. For those that are undecided the person who makes the 501st/RL/R2 badges has agreed to make some for us. He's known as Vader Vegas and helped with the X-wing, so he's kinda one of us. We just have to decide on a design, submit it to him, and we can order these badges individually whenever we want (there are no group discounts). It does take him some time to make them as he's doing this in his spare time. If we have enough interest and a design we all can agree on, I can submit it to him. Just remember the basic shape will be square metal like the other group badges, it's just a matter of how big you want the X-wing, where to put it, and info you want on the badges. Once he has the design he probably will not change it (he makes engraving templates for these badges), so when you order one the only thing you'll have to give him is the engraved info.

    I'm not planning on getting one so I voted "no." I didn't want to be counted in the total in case that affects the cost. But I think it's a great idea!

    Yes Lynelle, it was brought up due to your post. Because people are not posting on the boards the mighty CR thought it needed to be beaten over our heads with it :D I think it's a good idea, love the R2 one and I have a RL one but we were just talking getting Buster one but on the RL boards to get one you have to be a member, at our dog is not :p

    Let's finalize a design we all can agree on. Then we have to send it off to Damien so he can make them. Usually he takes orders from individuals via paypal with name, nickname, ID, etc (whatever info we want on them). I'll ask him if we can get a proof first, though (when we submit the design to him). I'm thinking of ordering one for myself then we can tweek the design based on mine (or go with it).

    Ben has an AI copy of the full RMFF logo, and I think that would be the best thing to use. Though it might have to be scaled down (which would make for a sad panda on my side) to the not-full version.

    Just an FYI, this is what they look like for the 501st and RL:

    The 501st/RL ones run $24 shipped.

    I think it would be cooler to have our logo a bit offset so it's a rectangle with the RMFF logo hanging off a bit, like Jawajaka's. It looks more dynamic and festive with the unusual shape compared to a rectangle with the graphics inside it.

    I think that would be awesome and help set us apart -- we may need to see how much of a price difference that would be.

    Do the three red and three blue dots indicate anything, like rank?

    501st one is based on Imperial Officer rank, I think the RL is also some sort of rank, too. However, all the 501st and RL nametags have the same red/blue dots, so I don't think he'll change that. RMFF doesn't have ranks, but we can add a line stating our board position/title. Just a thought. And yeah, I think having the logo a little off the rectangle would be superb. I paid $25 for the R2 one and $24 for the 501st one (which I'm still waiting to get), so not much difference there.

    I don't think we need the dots/squares at all. The logo should take up most of the space, then names

    I like it --FF does indeed sit between the Empire/Rebellion, 501st/Rebel Legion. I love it!

    I like it, too -- but I think swapping the bird and cog positions would be wise as to have them on the same sides of the badge as their respective ships. (I think it's imperative that we have the X-Wing on there.)

    I'm sure Ben will make it even more awesome. :cool:

    Hi All. Just saw all the messages, and decided to join the forums.
    yes, I'm an R2-Builder, and yes, Mary Franklin sent me the pieces of the busted-up R2 from the X-Wing after Celebration III when Don Bies said it was un-repariable. I fixed all of the electronics and repaired/replaced a bunch of seriously damaged parts on him. Wish I'd had more time, i would have done away with the big silver ring.
    Anyways, I can do the badges, except you have to realize the raised portion with your logo can only be 2 color (background-brushed silver or white, and lettering/logo BLACK).
    I cannot do an extra color (like the Yellow RMFF) without making it another plant-on (a 2nd layer on top of the main logo on top of the backplate.)
    There would be no extra charge for x-number of characters, but you won't want to get stupid like 'Big-Bob-obi-wanna-be-wookie-cuddler-with-an-attitude' Because it simply won't fit on the badge.
    Yes, I can make the badges witht he bump on the top for the Deathstar and no extra charge.

    That was just my hack C&P graphic to help the folks who need to "see" in order to understand. Our real graphics guy will come with a working version.

    And you did an awesome job putting the little guy back together. With any luck we'll be fixing that silver ring very soon. [face_peace]

    Hi Damien! As an R2 builder I'm working on the big silver ring thingy issue. It's only in theory (in-my-head sort of thing) right now, but I think I've got a plan. Thank you for helping us on the name badges. Just got my 501st badge and it's awesome!

    I believe at the last meeting that Grimby said that he'd put together an EPS file for us to check out and send on to Damien.
