what type of helmet was it? don post?
The official Licensed Star Wars X Wing Collectors helmet from the Star Wars Shop.
so its not worth it then
Errrrrrr NO, don't waste whatever money you would've spent on it, it looks cheap but certainly isn't, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT if you want quality and 'Cannon'.
what is Cannon????
"canon" is what GL says is "true" in the GFFA. it`s a huge debating area with regards to the EU as to whether things that go on in the books and comics etc are true to the films, i.e. canon.
to get into the 501st, your costume has to be canon, i.e. movie accurate.
if i`m wrong i am sure someone will correct me.
thanks it makes sense now! (id wish id asked before)
sounds pretty close B'Dave.
It get's more complex though.
Movie - Top level of canon
Radioplays - Next level of canon
Novelisations - Next level of canon
EU - Next level of canon
Games - Next level of canon
etc, etc, etc.
Basically, it's all accurate unless contradicted by a level of canon above it. So, if something in the books conflicts with something in the movie, the movie wins. However, if nothing in the movie contradicts it, then the book is accurate and considered canon. It can get really intense in some of the groups, who consider anything that wasn't in the movie as being inaccurate. I like this version best.
I want a blank Helemt to paint up my self
The 501st does allow EU costumes, they already have a Darth Nihilus in the ranks and a Darth Revan is now trying to get in as well.
The trick with a EU costume is that you need tons of reference pics so that your own costume looks like it just walked out of the game/book/etc. This is something I'll begining to know all to well myself.
Also in the 501st, your suppose to have a movie cannon costume as your first costume to join.
You also must be 18 or older for the same reasons as listed in this thread.
i shall join the UKG eventually when i have enough money to do so!
and when you`re old enough.
That's why he said eventualy. It is actualy quite expensive to be on the UKG. Some people probaly couldn't afford it.
Expensive? Only if you don't know where to look.
I never spent more then $400 for any costume I have on the 501st, and that includes the ones I'm currently working on now.
where did you get your stuff? PM me so as not to upset the Over Lord (hi daddy!)
OK, I warned you about the daddy comment in a previous message, Dave. What is it, do you just not listen? Be warned my patience is very thin at the moment and liable to break.
Sorry to persist but did you say that you'd found an alternative site for some of the pilot gear Phill ?
Which bits of the gear?
Chest Box, Helmet and or Flak Jacket, wasn't Richie's a little expensive on all of those ?
Ed aka Reaper from the RL was thinking of putting a package together and selling them. Have not heard anything else about it , but i suppose we could ask him.
/me prepares his large asking stick.
Do you think he'll need much persuasion ?
and obial from another board made those helmets we saw at NSC it was a kit made by his bro but he hasnt sorted out any sort of package thing yet.
please do tell of this wonerful person who will be cheap
I don't think beating Ed with a stick would do much except maybe get him ticked off at you.
Since Joe is away for the weekend, I'll see if Ed is around and zap him a email over this.
Thanks Wendy, you know we love ya, don't ya ?
