Hey all,

So I've pulled the trigger and got the boots and gloves ordered from ImperialBoots. I made it into their September wave.

I've been looking around and researching and I feel that I have found a set of armor that will work, Jimmiroquai's FOTK and TLJ helmet. Based on everything I am seeing this is the armor that will fit my frame the best. I'm waiting to order though based on getting a couple questions answered and of course seeing what your recommendations are!

I'm looking into soft parts, gaskets, mics, etc. and any and all suggestions for FOTK would be awesome!

Also looking through, is the FOTK not that popular in the Garrison yet? I only saw one approved in the members list.

But this thread will be my build thread one pieces start arriving. Super stoked to get to work on this!

Most of us use Aker mics and icomms.

I know that the FOTK don't have the static burst that the OT TK's have though. So I'm guessing I wouldn't need an Icomm? I have an Aker mic/amp from my ESB Boba Fett build.

If they don't have the static burst then I wouldn't think you would need an IComm.

Well been researching and everything again ha.

Think I got a vendor for my soft pouches figured out (trooperbay?) I contacted him on the FISD and am waiting on a response.

Still deciding on armor vendors, but I think I'm going to end up going with Jimmiroquai and his newest flexible fiberglass pieces. Probably end up just getting his gaskets to go along with it also or from a maker on the FISD

As far as accessories, I have a 3d printer so I'm going to be printing myself a F-11D blaster and the SE-44C pistol using the free models on the FISD. I also will eventually print a riot baton probably. And I'm scratch building the new Last Jedi vibro ax.

Getting super excited!! Pieces are on the way. I'm having a reaaaallllyy hard time not buying everything at once! ha!

Nice. I ordered my Snowtrooper stickers from Trooperbay. He's pretty fast and good about shipping.

He doesn't have the FOTK soft pouches on his site so I contacted him about them. Hopefully I hear back soon!

I got shipping notifications for my ImperialBoots order, my new aeriator(sp?) from VaderPainter and my FOTK belt kit should be coming soon. Also got my gaskets ordered from Soulart on the FISD (Geeky Pink's Phantastic Gaskets). Got inquiries into getting machined aluminum holster and Jimmiroquai for his newest kits (still waiting to hear back). And my blaster rifle is currently starting to print on my printer.

When I said I was going to do this, I never thought it would happen this fast!! Getting excited. Hopefully I can have it done for the Premier and be able to troop! (If there is premier trooping going on!)

Good news! Hopefully it happens.

Only update besides shipping notifications for things is I started printing my blaster last night. 38 hours left!

Well being on the road sucks. Had to start sanding in the parking lot of the hotel last night. But man are these pieces smooth! 400 grit dry sand.

Also getting incredibly excited as most of my stuff is showing up this week or next week to my house, even though I can't enjoy it haha. And armor is shipping soon! Hopefully in a couple weeks I can have some photos of actual armor :p

Well per the LPRO message I'm going to refrain from posting blaster photos for a bit. But I got all the parts sanded and wiped clean. Using glue and plastic welder I got most of the permanent parts attached. I have to wait till I get back so I can prep and primer them. Not too much more before I get to paint.

Rest of the kit wise; Armor has shipped from Jimmiroquai and should be getting to me soon! So excited. Also I have all my soft parts, belt, boots, gloves, machined aluminum aerator just waiting at my place for me. Just got my audio kit and fans ordered also. Going a little above and beyond on this but I think it'll be worth it.

Also started forming out the parts for the Laser Ax before I left with work and hope to continue that soon.

I should be home next week and you'll be flooded with BBB photos and WIP.

Thanks!

HUGE development! They have officially launched the TK TLJ Executioner CRL's on the 501st!!!! And there is already two approved kits I believe.

Following their example I hope to not be far behind them!
