  1. Greetings from the Tri-Cities!

    Matt, Believe it or not, you are actually surrounded by lots of fellow 501st, RL, Mando Mercs, and R2 builders in your area! I live in Elizabethton TN (TK22710) We have probably 20 or so members within the Tri Cities. Also several in the Ashville NC area as well as SW Virginia. We have armor parties as often as we can and with safety in mind due to covid. We usually keep them small and lots of distancing, but still great to get together and build. There are also two others that I know of who live in Jonesborough who are currently working on shadow troopers. We all have a private Facebook group for everyone in our area its called "Plastic Spacemen" (yeah very original) Anyway I HIGHLY recommend you request to join this!!! Talk to ya soon,

  4. Looking to serve the 501st

    Hey James, Welcome!! TK is always a great costume and not that difficult to build. My advice would be to join the whitearmor.net page and read read read!!! Same for any character you are thinking about. Ask lots of questions, and do lots of research before starting a build. We are all here to help. Good luck!! Phil Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk

    So cool! I was at the knoxville zoo that day and pretty sure I remember talking to you! I would go with a stormtrooper. They are very recognizable to kids and families, and they are alot of fun to build and wear. I would look into AM 2.0 armor or ATA. Mine is AM and is very solid! You will not be disappointed! Best of luck. If you have any questions feel free to pm.me or post on here. I will be happy to help you any way I can. I live in Johnson city TN so not far from knoxville.
