Greetings From a Youngjedi!!!!

Post by Youngjedi »

Hello All and salute.

My name is Charlie. I joined the 501st a long time ago....when the organization was just forming. TK267. I joined after getting my trooper armor...Hollywood FX version. I've worn the armor to Halloween parties and such, but never got a chance to really connect with the 501st. I would like that to change. My armor was displayed for several years in living room, then put in box for the past 7 years. Unfortunately, upon taking it out one day, I noticed it yellowed. I am in the process of reversing this and realized that, as the outfit sits now, it would never pass 501st standards today. I am in the process of bring my armour to spec with the 501st.

As for what I have been doing lately, I am an IT manager for a manufacturing company. At home,(Single) I am surrounded by Star Wars Memorabelia and working on building an R2 unit, 3D Printing, and Restoring Antique Slot machines.

I wanted to take this oportunity to say Hello to all the fellow troopers in the midwest.
