    and no were not talking number of posts here :)

    I will be a member soon, there will be a few events to get involved with come May, and I'm hoping to be right in amongst it. apart from mr Maul, are there any other members lurking here? I'll probably need some tips for assembling my armour.

    chansplace,

    my armour arrived toady...when you unpack that box and spread it all out n the lounge floor it looks pretty daunting! Still there are a bunch of tutorials and suggestions online, some that vary from the provided instructions, but getting in touch with someone who has done it before is a REALLY good idea.

    regards

    When trimming/customising it, I would recommend...lots of patience, and take 'baby steps'! Lots of testing to see how things fit together, and on you. You can always cut more off, but it is harder to put styrene back on.

    Man, our very own South island stormtrooper.

    How many of your clone hours did it take to put together?

    I want some.

    How much and where did you purchase it online? Inlcuding membership to the 501st of course.

    Have you got ur 'line up in formation bros' accent down yet?

    It has already been mentioned in several EU sources that Stormtroopers are made up of clones from several different hosts and recruits. Also most of the Jango clones have died as they only made 3 or so batches and the accelerated growth. So practically no Stormtroopers are Jango clones as they are too old or dead.

    EU is bollocks, personal oppinion.

    Although, like JP's sig use to say (and may still do). You realise your arguing whether one set of fiction is more right than another set of fiction.

    Newsflash. It's all not true.

    Id rather believe the EU where practically no Stormies are Jangos than the movie and believe all Stromies are, its just silly. The Eu is good sometimes. Sometimes it isn't, looking at you Kelvin J Anderson.

    Anyone interested in scoring a Stormtrooper armour kit can PM me at tk102@xtra.co.nz They're the same kits as seen on www.swnz.co.nz and www.outpost42.co.nz and pretty much every other site that has Troopers on it. :)
    As far as being over 18 goes, that only applies to joining the 501st. It doesn't mean you can't Troop with us! The more the merrier!!
    Cheers,
