  1. Greetings from Knoxville

    Thanks to all of you! I have been officially approved. Say Hello to TK 42071!! Special Thanks to HeatRay and Clonezilla who helped guide me through my armour build. Had a chance to troop at Boo at the zoo and am excited to troop at FanBoy this weekend. You guys have been super friendly and helpful. Honored to be part of the Garrison! Hope to meet a bunch of you guys this weekend! Erik
  2. Just got Approved!! I am now TK 42071

  3. Greetings from Knoxville

    Thanks Green! I'm really excited for you too! Good luck with your build!
  4. Waiting on my armor to arrive...

  5. Wow! That's courageous my friend... I would start with perhaps posting on the events page. The Parade at Dragon*Con usually contains hundreds of troopers and you could definitely get some good photo ops there...
  6. Just Shipped In From Knoxville, Tn

    Welcome Zachary! I am seeing a bunch of Knoxville people here lately... I am one as well.
  7. Greetings From Scruffy Knoxville

    Welcome Pat! I'm also in Knoxville and have been wanting to armour up forever. I just ordered a kit from Authentic Props in Canada. Once it comes in, I will get with some of the locals to put it all together. You are on the right track. Do plenty of research and talk to the troopers at the events. They are a very friendly bunch. Let me know if I can help out in any way. My armour should arrive in a couple of weeks and I can barely stand the wait...
  8. Waiting on a box filled with armour from Canada...

  9. Greetings from Knoxville

    Ok. Ordered my AP armour. It should arrive in the next couple of weeks. Already have black body suit (UnderArmour top and bottom heat gear) Got Boots from TK Boots, gonna order DappyDoos kit for my Hasbro Blaster. Gloves and Holster also from AP. I believe the Hovie Mics that come with that kit are not 501st approved? Also gonna order neck seal from one of the guys online here, can't remember his name. Spoke with HeatRay today who is in my area and we may plan a build party when my package arrives. Sooooo excited! With any luck, I can be done and approved in time to troop with you guys at Dragon*Con this year. Any advice would be appreciated. Oh... What about a belt? does that come with the AP armour? or Do I need to get some canvas?
  10. Greetings from Knoxville

    Thank you everybody for the warm welcome! I have been looking around on www.whitearmor and am looking at authenticprops in Canada. I am 5'9" 175lbs. Want a real glossy abs ANH hero. Any objections to AP??
  11. Greetings from Knoxville

    That's an awesome resource! Thanks Robbie. Now to find some local Knoxville folks to help me. Will keep an eye out for events.
  12. Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I have been wanting to get a tk costume for years now. I have been going to Dragon*Con for the last nine years and love to see you guys march in the parade. I would like to know where would be a good place to pick up stormtrooper armor and who can help me with assembly. I have seen several on Ebay but want to make sure it is good enough for 501st. Please advise... Thanks, Erik erikstaylor@hotmail.com
