  1. Hi All, I am a new proud parent of an RS PropMasters ESB StormTrooper suit I had commissioned. I have dreamt of joining the 501st back when I first saw some of the crew outside of Hanley's Toy Store in Dundrum awhile back. I am completely smitten with the suit and hope to join you all for some of the trooping events coming up. I look forward to getting to know all you fine people. A little about me, I'm 44 and have a wife and two boys. I love Star Wars, Gundams, Lego, and Video Games. I am a Senior Site Reliability Engineer and have worked in software for a good amount of time. I love to cook and like many learned to bake sourdough during lockdown. I hope I can meet you all and I hope to bring some treats to the first trooping event I can attend. Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting you all! -Todd

  2. Hi all, its been a while. I last trooped Sep 9th 2017 and found myself in hospital a week later. Im still battling illness but have gotten to a point where Im keen to be a part of the community again and would love to eventually be able to troop again. Have managed to amass a sizable SW figure collection in the last while and about to make some models and try my hand at customisations. Still have an inoperable "collapsed spine" so I also need to source a new costume (2 and a bit inches shorter means my TK doesnt fit ). Hopefully catch you all soon. Alan TK16076

  4. I am hoping that I might be able to attend, it just depends whether I can catch up on enough work this week! If I'm there, I'll have Del Meeko and Gideon Hask.

  10. Hi everyone! I'm Alice and I'm part of the Rebel Legion Italian Base. I've recently moved to Dublin to study at Trinity as a postgrad and I'd like to take part in the events you organise here. I'm really looking forward to sharing my Star Wars passion and anything related to it with other people, real people, which seems a sort of an unusual thing after one year and a half of pandemic. Besides Star Wars, I also love Tolkien (I have four Tolkienian cosplays), larping and roleplaying Lovecraft. Really looking forward to meeting you all!!! Alice

    Would it be OK to pop in on this as crew with my daughter for a couple of hours on the Sat? Looks like the perfect opportunity to ease in and reintroduce myself to the Legion

    Phibsboro finishes at 3pm. The Tattoo convention goes on till around 8pm so there is no problem if anyone wanted to head over to the RDS afterwards. No pressure though.

  18. Thanks! I have fond memories of the Tattoo festival. Not everyday you see a Stormie get inked and we rocked on stage! Really looking forward to meeting up again. I'm mobile(ish) crutches for any distance but I can lean against a bar stool for a couple of hours . I'm on a pretty intense pain management regime and I have the option to double down for a short period. Pay for it afterwards but I certainly think I could eventually troop at an event that has a sizeable group. I'd be hesitant about taking a spot in something that requires just 2 or 3 active members. But larger troops where I can stand down from time to time should be OK. But crewing shouldn't be an issue. Again it would have to be as a tag along in the situations where a crew member is a must at all times. I need to obtain a kit that isn't so restrictive around the torso and be able to sit. I'm thinking Tie. I've pinged you on messenger Chris. Not active on FB but do have messenger. Here is the main spot for Trooping info though?

  23. Hi Dropkick, StraightRazor, tipperaryred, SyntaxError! Yeah just realized I don't wanna be carting around this giant cardboard box full of armor. Thanks for all the tips lads/ladettes! Are you all using the TRamps with the finger buttons or the fob?

  24. Welcome Todd, delighted for another TK. One item I completely overlooked was storage and transport until it was mentioned to me. Woodies and Homebase occasionally have large wheeled storage containers which are ideal. I haven’t trooped yet, but I have an aker amp and trooper talk on my phone which work nicely. I’d strongly recommend a fan, although I still need to set mine up!

  25. Ah yes I see your application in the GML's email now Todd, Andi or John will go through your application and get back to you as soon as they can, best of luck with clearance Many of us use a voice amplifier by a crowd called T-ramp, they are very good, you can find them on Facebook, the guys name is Paul, he is a very nice person to deal with. Helmet fans are also essential for when you get very not in your armour on troops, they will prevent your lenses from fogging up. One or two 5v blower fans will do it run off a powerbank. I will see if I can find you on fb if you use it and can send you some useful links.

  26. Thanks Chris! I sent my pics off as per the FAQ. Do you all have voice modulators and is there any particular model/brand you would recommend? Any other mods/kit you find essential? Thanks, Todd
