How you learned about us
I'm not sure actually. I think a stumbled across it a few years ago. It was only this year that myself and XxjeffxX (501st and Rebel Legion approved member) got into getting/building CRL approved outfits.
Why you are requesting access to the MidSouth Garrison discussion board
I am seeking Advice, Guidance, and Education on a Royal Guard built, either ROTJ or AOTC, they seem to be the same for the color of the boots. Once this is built I will submit for approval and then be able to troop in either a Dark Side or Light Side character.
I am looking at two different companies to purchase the soft parts from Here and Here . Both companies claim to be CRL compliant however I would like to know that from the 501st directly. I read somewhere that Rubies Royal Guard helm is 501st approved but QC is questionable sometimes. Korbanth seems to be on the higher quality side but both companies look fantastic.
I know there is an Emperor and Darth Vader that attends functions, might be fitting to add a Royal Guard member to complete the scenes from the movies during a Troop. Besides that, the Royal Guard, behind Darth Vader, have such a presence in the movies even though they are barely seen. They have been my favorite characters other than Darth from the Dark Side.
