  2. officially became part of TFE today! Requesting detachment access https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=24289
  3. Today
  4. Now printing out some of the parts that seem to be OK. The entire file is being verified and most of them look "OK". However, there were some areas of concern regarding the armor on the back of the hands, thumbs, elbows, and calves, so I asked the creator of the file to correct them. I hope he accepts... Let me know if you notice anything! The belt is being verified, including how they are manufactured, and the boots armor have not yet been fully verified.
  5. Last week
  6. Hello guys, I'd like to become a member of the detachment. Here's my link: https://www.501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=36577&costumeID=108 Thanks
  7. Ok thank you very much for the clear up! Then I will just follow that crl and send in pictures for approval when time comes. Thanks again for the reply
  8. The CRL is complete, there were just so many incorrect masks being approved that LMO agreed to keep it so that GMLs have to submit it for approval in the costume advice area of the 501st forums. It's still perfectly fine to build and submit.
  9. Sad history about dath bane is Darth Bane, a pivotal figure in the Star Wars universe, is infamous for his dark and treacherous history. Born as Dessel on the Outer Rim world of Apatros, his early life was marked by hardship and poverty. His journey into the Sith Order began under the guidance of the Sith Lord Kopecz, where he first tasted the allure of the dark side. Bane's ascent to power was tainted by a trail of betrayal and manipulation. He quickly learned that the Sith were a faction built on deceit and internal strife. Through cunning and ruthlessness, he orchestrated the demise of his Sith peers, culminating in the infamous thought bomb that annihilated the Brotherhood of Darkness at the Battle of Ruusan. This sinister act not only wiped out his enemies but also eradicated countless innocent lives. Darth Bane legacy further darkened as he implemented the Rule of Two, a doctrine that called for the existence of only two Sith at any given time – a Master and an Apprentice. While this approach aimed to strengthen the Sith by preventing internal discord, it fostered a legacy of secrecy, manipulation, and the constant pursuit of power. Bane's ruthless pursuit of Sith supremacy left a lasting scar on the galaxy, shaping the Sith Order into a shadowy and malevolent force for centuries to come. His legacy, though undeniably influential, is one marred by a history of violence, betrayal, and the relentless pursuit of power at any cost.

  12. Hi everyone. It’s been a quick one so far and now I’m thinking of my 2nd costume. It will be interesting to see how it looks and fits when the costume gets here. I got it from WA. A few things I will need to complete this build: 1) Boots - I’ll look for a different black pair since the boots I used before looks too “smart casual” and it has a zipper on the inside. I might look for a pair of boots that is similar to my Revan boots, but this time without the strap 🙂 2) Saber - It’s quite challenging to look for an exact replica, especially one that is installed. I messaged Nina about it and end up settling for a standard VV rev-n. It looks similar in form except the pommel is not roundish. I’ll see if I can get someone to manufacture a pommel that looks like what he uses but for now, this will do. 3) Voice amplifier/speaker - I plan to use a speaker and pair it with a 5-button sound glove unit and load it with a variety of Nihilus sounds. This is a work in progress while I’m looking for a unit that is slim enough to not look like I have a mass on my chest. 🤣 I’m in the process of cleaning up the audio and will map them out to the different buttons. So many moving parts and I will ask more questions as they come. My question for today is for those who use a soundboard/voice comm, does it sound like you are just trooping with a faulty speaker? I ask because unless people are aware of Nihilus, they won’t appreciate the sound produced. Thanks in advance and looking forward to completing this build! Rex
  13. Today I printed only one hand armor.
  14. Greetings from Japan! I've been attracted to this costume for the past few years and wasn't sure when to start, but I think I'm going to start slowly. ITEMS- Helmet/Armor: 3D Print from 3Demon - Just Started Robe: Undecided. I may have to beg my wife to make it. Neckseal: Same as above Pouches: Same as above Lightsaber: Undecided. It seems like a good idea to ask Vaders Vault. Undersuit / Gloves / Shoes: Plan to find an appropriate one domestically. As you can see, very little preparation has been done. In the meantime, I'm going to print and prepare armor parts to motivate myself. Is it permissible to have the data checked together if necessary? Thanks in advance. I would be honored to complete this project and join TFE.
  15. Hey all, I am almost there with my KOTOR version, and it m at the chest. I'm not sure what people are using for the foam under the tunic. I have some EVA foam, it's 6mm. Seems a little think. Maybe even too rigid but I don't know. Definitely open to ideas

  21. I was successfully able to get my wicked armor v2 darth revan approved last week. https://imgur.com/a/07E0wwI
  22. Greetings, all. A local guy is wanting to do an IK (actually...a couple are) and I was helping them with the parts when armor came up. I saw a post in a thread last year about Walt's Trooper Factory doing a run of the IK armor and reached out for this guy. Just wanted to drop a line to let you all know that WTF is currently doing IK armor. Some of the parts like the cape "cap" plate seem a bit elongated to me (although I gotta admit, I like that look). But, as it is a costume from a comic that has many, many variations in the drawings, I don't really see an issue with that. One really good thing about his kit is that the shoulders look to be the correct proportions. My first set was ginormous and the current set seem a bit small to me. I may be ordering a set of his shoulders to update my kit. Anyhow, shoot WTF a message if you are in the market for IK armor. He has, as he put it, normal man size, big mad size, and women's size. I have only seen pics of the raw, unpainted pulls of what I assume is the "normal man size", so I don't know if his female armor is shaped differently. His price isn't bad and he offers group discounts if you have a squad of IKs in the making (that would look soooo cool, by the way).
  23. belt buckle and cape clasp redesigned to be a more crisp and uniform, the finished look and coating is a special black/grey gunmetal. for contrast i am showing this in natural light and a v1/v2 comparison in modified light.
