Hello from Memphis TN

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Thanks for having me. 

My name is Alex D.

I have no 501st, Rebel Legion, or other costuming group affliation(s).... yet.

I am currently in Memphis, TN

I learned about you in my quest to find stormtrooper armor and how to get started in the garrison. 

I am requesting access because I would love to become involved and share the experience with others, both in fundraising events, and awareness at local cons.

 

I would really like some input on size vs the type of trooper. I'm 5'10" and 235. Line backer shoulders with a gut. Lol. I've read that with modification, TK armor would fit, but I'm pretty green when it comes to builds. I work well off instructions, but getting parts and saying "ok, go" usualy turns into a failure. So... help me Midsouth garrison, you're probably my only hope. Now, on to look at more posts about armor.

**Edit after searching - Ok, I've decided on TK armor, but where do I find kits for sale? No ebay. I've looked at Anovo, whitearmor.net and other forums, but most are either old posts or vague shady posts. Where do you guys get your armor? Or more specifically, from who?

Welcome friend! :)

I'm sure there is plenty of people that can help around where you live

Walt's Trooper Factory may be a good start for a TK kit of your liking

Hey Alex!  Good to have you around. We have quite a few in Memphis, including myself.  Do you use Facebook?  We chat casually there with locals in Memphis.  In the mean time, be sure to do some research on the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detatchments forum (FISD) www.whitearmor.net

Hey Alex!

The FISD forums will be your best resource for anything TK related. Super helpful folks there. 

Here's a thread from the forum that should help. It's a list the vetted armor makers that build armors acceptable for the 501st. There are two armor makers that specifically build armor for larger builds, they are AM and RTMod. Here is the link, both makers are listed under the "fan sculpt" section:
