  1. Last week
  2. A head's up for anyone planning on making Mandalore the Ultimate: As of this week, the Detachment staff, LMOs, and approved members with the costume have agreed to change the existing BH designation of Mandalore the Ultimate to the new designation of MW (Mandalorian). This designation covers Mandalorians who were not historically Bounty Hunters, and fits better to the character's story. This will change nothing except the letters in front of the TKID for the specific costume, and he will be remaining within TFE! The change will take effect next week.
  3. Comm-Tower Spotlights: Sept 2021 We’re pleased to introduce you to The Flagship Eclipse member SL-5475, otherwise known as Marlon Moreira Ferreira. Marlon is from the Brazilian Division Garrison, and is our TFE Member in the spotlight for this month’s Newsletter! They took some time to have a chat with Luciana, one of our TFE PR Officers. LD: When did you join the 501st Legion and why did you join? Marlon: October 2007, because I love Star Wars game Knights of the Old Republic II. LD: Why did you choose to join The Flagship Eclipse Detachment? Marlon: Because of my favorite Sith, Darth Nihilus. LD: What is your favorite costume and what is your favorite character? Marlon: Republic Commando, Commander Gregor. LD: What is your dream costume and what are your future costume plans? Marlon: Republic commando Gregor, Royal Guard, Tie Pilot, Imperial Officer, and Senate Guard. In March 2008 there was a Star Wars exhibition in São Paulo, we were in our trooper costumes all day. When we took a rest to have something to eat and drink, the organization sent us to the interview room where the buffet was served. To our surprise, Anthony Daniels was there, alone, fixing the room! We apologized and started helping him, but he replied that it was him who owed apologies, he took a tray of food and then a jug of juice and glasses and served us all!
  4. Issue with this costume it will have to be sized to each and every person because the parts are like puzzle pieces. I am having a nightmare of a time sizing everything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Sent from my motorola edge using Tapatalk Hi , My Daughter is considering the Wicked Armour Darth Nihilus , I've seen some debate about accuracy , can someone please confirm it's still approveable.
  6. This costume is almost completed, just waiting on parts from my leather maker and boots from Gio (CrowProps). Old Jedi robe is made just need to weather it down to make it look like the game. Lightsabers already have installed with Neopixel and smooth swing sound files from the game. Will post my usual guide in October. Well here’s the hilts for a seek peak. I am a busy boy!

  7. I am in the process of getting my Mara Jade black bodysuit together. I have my boots, kneedpad/shin guards, goggles, lightsaber, cape broach, just finished burnishing the edges of my belt, holster, arm bands, and shoulder harness, sanded and painted my BlasTech DL-18 and sewed my black wrist wraps. I'm waiting for my bodysuit, cowl, and cape. My question is that I have seen a lot of Mara Jades recently with the off-white cowl with the goggles holding it up, has anyone done the black cowl option? Or do you see many with the cape or wrist wraps as opposed to gloves? I'm looking at trying to make my Mara Jade a little different than what you see most often.
  8. Just wanted to say that I'm still working on this, life just happened to get in the way of a lot of progress. I should be getting my soft parts in a few weeks max. The plan is to have to ready for March for OzCC Perth which should hopefully be the first convention in my state for just under 3 years. (we haven't had a convention since October 2019) So tl;dr it's still going, just very slowly because life.
  9. Hi! I am currently working on a second sister build. I am missing the neck seal. Anyone taking commissions? Thank you so much
  10. Earlier
  11. I saw your message! I have not had the time to work on this for a while, but hopefully later in the fall is when I will pick it back up again! Been in a KOTOR mood ever since the new game teaser release! Looks really good!
  12. Hi I have been working on this costume also, not that I really wanted to post about it till I had fully almost completed the costume but here it is anyway. This costume has been years in the making as it has been a monumental task! The files are old that you have found. I have the updated version from the original artist Paul Spooner that made this model and was paid for handsomely for his work and deserves the credit for his fabulous work. I have worked with him to updated some mistakes on the 1st version of this model - the shoulders been fixed and also some details in the helmet, armor and neck that are also inaccurate that have been updated and fixed. To be closer to the game. All details that are detailed on the models are taken from the games model textures and just enhancing the effects of those textures within the games armor to relay them on a better quality model. Example of some fixes: I also have made the blaster rifle and have it modeled. If you would like these updates please let me know. I will be PVC resin printing mine so no print lines or having to vacuum form it losing details, I am also planning to get it professionally chrome plated. Colors of armor can be in a white, chrome or red. Reference of all in game colors from KOTOR 1.

  13. The 2008 quarren soldier Saga Legends figure which the Maleval figure head sculpt was based off of, to further reinforce my argument of the inaccuracy of the head sculpt of the maleval figure, and to further reinforce the idea that he has no head sacks as seen in the comic. (the tentacles are a dead give away):
  14. Hi everyone, I'm finishing up my grand inquisitor very soon and I'm hoping to do a Darth Maleval next. Mask: He is a quarren with rather unique features in the comics such as no bulbous sacks in the back of his head which differs from Tessek style quarren. I am hoping to use a modified version of the mandalorian style quarren for this build as it has no bulbous sacks in the back. This differs from his action figure version which uses a repainted model of the Saga Legends quarren soldier. Hard Parts: He has a metallic style chest plate with large shoulder armor. The top part of the chest plate is a smooth metal like, the under surface is rough in texture, kind of like dented medal. He has black knee pads that sit on top of his boots. The shoulder armor has smooth detailing. The chest plate has a collar attached that covers the neck, with wide opening in the front. There is a metallic style belt at the bottom of the torso plate. Soft Parts: Leather like arm wraps with fingerless gloves (for a 3 fingered quarren). A leather like loin cloth with a cloth skirt that goes down to the ground or an inch above the ground. Tall leather boots with leather straps. Black pants are worn underneath the skirt. Weapons: Yuzzahn Vong coral lightsaber Electro Whip Optional: He has a black cloak that he wears. References:

  18. It can be a bit tricky to find all the parts, perhaps one in here with the KOTOR version can help with a vendor for the gloves ? I have the coft version, where the gloves are a bit different.
  19. Thanks for the response. Yeah I looked at the CRL and the text description is a little fuzzy on it. Since this is a detachment reviewed costume I'd like to actually find a pair that will be approved. The Wicked Armor gloves have a foam ring around the wrist, so I have no idea what will actually work... 🤯 **EDIT** Scratch that, found some: https://www.amazon.com/Womens-Genuine-Leather-Evening-LEATHER/dp/B086K3JMX1/ref=sr_1_172?dchild=1&keywords=black%2Bleather%2Bgloves%2Blong&qid=1631162973&refinements=p_n_size_browse-vebin%3A2343349011&rnid=2343347011&s=apparel&sr=1-172&th=1&psc=1
  20. Hello there. I am so incredibely happy I've found this thread. I am a huge fan of Momin and want to one day make the costume myself. I'll be watching this thread with the greatest interest. (Just one question. Did Mr. Soule confirm Momins helmet is metalic silver ? I was wandering what colour it is, because in the comic it has like three colours I was thinking it could be gold, but I guess metalic works too)
  21. Cool! I’ll do that when the time comes.
  22. You'll want to post the specified changes with current and proposed changes images to compare here: https://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/forum/198-dark-side-adepts/
  23. Hi As to the CRL, that you can see here : https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_darth_nihilus-kotor the gloves needs to be free of straps, buckles, snaps, or extra decoration, so unless you can remove the bindings, then they are sadly a no go.
  24. Forgot about this thread for a while! since school started I haven’t had much time to work on this costume, but I did get most of the armor finished and was able to do a suit up before summer ended. I’m not wearing them here, but I’ve made version 1 of the boot rings discussed in the other Grand inquisitor boots thread. As it seems right now, there needs to be some updates made to the CRL. Where does that process begin? Who should I talk to? My costume isn’t finished yet, but I’d like to have an idea of where to turn when it is.
  25. So I was thinking what color is Momin’s costume and I thought why not just ask Charles so he said it’s black. So that makes it easier to pick fabric for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  26. Soo my friend made this file and printed it for me, just for fun at convetntions
