New Acquisitions

Post by TKay-Tee »

Though not protocol droids, my husband and I are avid Star Wars fans (we even used Star Wars music in our wedding). Aside from being Star Wars fans since youth (I went to see Return of the Jedi in 1983 when I was in 3rd grade, and ironically enough, our daughter will be in 3rd grade for next year's release of episode VII), we are VERY active in mud obstacle racing (think Luke training with Yoda on Dagobah). What started as my idea to surprise him with the end-all, BE-ALL birthday gift, a set of storm trooper armor, has grown into a burning desire to join the Midwest Garrison and be a part of the charitable activities/appearances arranged by this garrison. We look forward to meeting more of the Midwest Garrison in the near future.... but first things first. Looks like we have a LOT of research to do in the realm of armor. I have been advised to peruse the forums for information but any additional advice or suggestions is certainly welcomed.

Thanks, Sakic! We are VERY excited. We are actually looking at purchasing TWO sets of armor so we can do this together.

I've contacted ATA Works, but it looks like a 9 month wait and helmet does not come with decals. Is this typical? Where would I get the decals then?

Thanks!

It is a long wait. I had to endure it myself. I don't know if other kits come with decals or not. I bought tube stripes only and hand painted the rest on mine. Good luck.

Thanks, fellow troopers. My husband and I placed our orders (both getting TK armor) last week. Now... the wait begins.
