  2. Shrek On The Move Again!

    You are indeed correct. B5 fan here. I'd consider it one of my strongest fandoms... 2nd only to Star Wars. I think there are a few others in the neighborhood.
  3. Shrek On The Move Again!

    Welcome to the area! I'm not far from LaVergne, out in Mt Juliet. We've got a great group of troopers in the greater Nashville area. Looking forward to seeing you at an event once you are settled.
  4. Shrek On The Move Again!

    AWESOME!!!! Another Babylon 5 fan!!!!! I haven't been able to find many of us during my travels! (Hope I guessed right judging by the screen name, and didn't just make myself look like a fool)
  5. Shrek On The Move Again!

    Welcome to the area.... (allow two weeks shipping and handling ) Events are slowly but surely picking up, so there should be some trooping options soon after you get here.
  6. Hey Everyone, My name is Jason, aka Shrek. I'm originally from Bronx/Brooklyn New York. I've been a 501st member since 2014. Currently at 248 troops. Started off with the Tampa Bay Squad, Florida Garrison. Moved to Charlotte, NC in February 2020 as a promotion through work. Did a few troops with the Carolina Garrison. Now I'll be relocating to the Nashville area (La Vergne) through another promotion effective August 2nd. Once I settle in, I look forward to putting on my plastic spacesuit and bring some smiles. Hopefully, I'll finally get to finish my Zeb costume (5 yrs in the making.... so far). I'm currently a Tie Pilot, Reserve Pilot, Gunner (two versions), and Navy Trooper. Hopefully get to meet some peeps soon.

  24. It's been over a year since I first posted, but am almost ready for approval. Shoretrooper Grunt is done and should finish up soft goods this weekend. I wasn't going to carry a blaster at first (excited for the possible new holsters ST if CRL is updated), but now I think I want to invest in an E-22. Can I be approved without the blaster and then add it later? Any Shoretroopers in Knox Eisley?
  25. RACE SHIRTS NEXT WAVE?

    I was wanting to know when the next wave of Race Shirts will be coming? Thank you!
