Hey everyone. I just thought I'd take the time real quick to introduce myself since I'm new, I'm hoping that I'm putting this post where it needs to go, not good with this computer stuff lol, but anyway, my name is Chad Timothy, currently living in Provo. I'm going to school at Utah Valley University for a degree in aviation science with a professional pilot emphasis so that's pretty fun. I'm 22, just got off of a religious 2 year mission 6 months ago and I heard about the 501st while I was on the mission. When I got home I took a look and I got pretty excited about the charity part, I love doing service and helping others, and I also love star wars so I guess that fits pretty well. I'll be looking to portray just your average storm trooper for now, I'm sure in the future I'll try and move towards a clone trooper but that'll come after the degree haha. So yeah there it is, really excited to start coming consistently to events in January as I'll be in Arizona with family for these next two weeks, but I look forward to meeting all of you and getting involved! Thanks for your time and have a good one.

Welcome, glad you can start spreading a new good message! And there are never too many stormtroopers around.

Welcome !!

These blast points — too accurate for sandpeople. Only imperial stormtroopers are so precise

Welcome! It will be good to have you come spot for us, it will give you a chance to see armor in person and see what it's all about.

Thank you guys for the kind and warm welcome. Just makes me more excited to be here. As far as the armor is concerned I was wondering if its mandatory that I build it or am I able to order the stormtrooper armor? I was looking at originalstormtrooper.com and they have some really nice stuff, but I don't want to get it and have it not meet 501st standards. Any help on the subject would be great.

From what I remember that website is bad news, not good quality. If you are looking at a stormtrooper, head over to whitearmor. They have a list of vetted vendors who are known for good service and quality armor. And there are plenty of us who can help you put it together.

http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/

http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/19329-where-what-and-whom-to-avoid-when-buying/

A big suggestion is to research, research, research. There is a ton of information out there and the more you can find out before you purchase the better.

Thanks for those links. I was able to review them and really did some research like you said, I was wondering if you guys think it'd cost me any more to pull together a commander gree outfit? I love storm troopers, but commander gree remains my favorite even with the minute screen time he had. I'm interested in seeing what you guys have to say as I am totally excited about either prospect, storm trooper or commander gree.
