Re: Hello from Batavia!

Thanks... I'm sort of figuring out that I'm going to just have to save money and buy a kit together. Due to the nature of the situation with copyright and Lucasfilms/Disney it's hard to find much information and most sellers will only due helmets separate, but the armor is sold as a kit.

Re: Paperwork came in this morning, hi from Uptown Chicago!

Hey Gemma,

Amazing how quick that approval came from the Legion, eh? I think that had to be a record...they must have been going through activations right when I sent it up. :lol

We'll get your forum profile member access, so you can see the troops list, etc.

Re: 05/19/2018 SAT - Great Strides 2018 - Naperville/60540

Rick, one thousand apologies. I edited this event report based on my 2017 version, but I forgot to change the physical date. The correct date of the troop is * 05/19/18 IL Naperville - Great Strides.

Sorry about that mixup.

Re: In need of some input

IMG_5683.PNG That v-shaped double point where the red lines are doesn't look that good. I would consider trimming away the green circled area to make that a flat edge, single point (if that makes sense). And, if you're concerned about the return edge, don't be...it's ok to not have them there. If y...
