    So exciting! My armor arrived! I am building a Stunt Stormtrooper based on the boys in white from A New Hope. My armor was purchased from TupperwareTK, and it is based on Armor Master's (AM) fan-sculpt.

    I'm very excited to get into this project. I'll be sure to share some occasional updates, but my completion goal is October.

    I ordered the full kit from TupperwareTK on the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment (FISD).

    Let me know if you need any help or pointers on putting it all together. I've adopted Old Sarge's straps and snap technique. Holds strong.

    Thanks so much! I may take you up on that. I've still got some research to do to make sure I'm getting the best results.

    I wish. I promised my wife - no TK building until I finished a couple of projects around the house. The good news is that I finished up 2 huge projects this week!

    I'm hoping to start on my blaster this weekend. I got a Doopy Do's E11 kit.

    Deception you must learn! It looks like you are working hard on the project in the garage, all the while you're assembling some armor...

    The season is over. Are you done with the armor yet?

    Just kidding. We can give you another week.

    Haha, my biggest problem is that my basement is still not set up yet with a proper work shop (I don't have a garage). So, that's the biggest hurdle. I'm getting there though. Yesterday I demo'd the stairs inside the Bilco Doors. Today and tomorrow will be Dry-Lock, and construction of the new stairs...

    I'm dying to get into the plastic projects! :)

    First of all, great job to everyone on the Bison's Star Wars Night! I brought 3 of my nephews and my wife to the game, and we were all blown away! The story-line, video production, stunts, and live action were top notch! I was so proud to say, "I know those guys!"

    Ok, now as for my TK. Enough with the excuses. Time for results!

    Workbench - check!
    TK Armor delivered to my house - check!
    Doopy Doo's E11 Blaster Kit - check!
    Progress Pics - coming shortly!

    Haha, yes. My Halloween costume from last year (Iron Man Mark 6). It's a pepakura foam build.

    Does anyone know off-hand how many EIB (Expert Infantry Badge) and Centurion Stormtroopers are currently active with the Northridge? I might need some "Troopers helping Troopers" chats with them as I move forward....
