TK-22423's TM Snowtrooper Build

Post by 22423 »

Hello there!
I'm putting my build thread here too because I haven't seen many on this forum and thought it would be fun!
In my quest to build one armor for each of the OT movies I've landed on ESB, I already have an ANH TK since before. Now after saving for a while for a Snowie I bought one from Troopermaster together with all the soft goods. Only need some small stuff, but I should be able to find it relativily easily.

This will probably be a slow build as I still have school and other stuff hanging around but it may pick up speed once I really start. :)

Now I have some questions;
-Does anybody have a good source for an ESB E-11? I've got a DLT-19 on the way and I already have an ANH one but I feel it could be good with a smaller, more accurate blaster.
-Does anyone have any opinion on E6000 plus? I know you should look out for fake ones but I think this is from the right company. I have a hard time finding any other E6000 in Sweden and would prefer not buying any outside the country because our customsservice is both slow and expensive. But if not, I can always buy from trooperbay or somesuch.

This build will also be posted on FISD and Blizzardforce forums.

Well that's it for now, see you soon!

The standard E-11 can easily be modified for an ESB version, just remove the hengstler and powercylinder. If you want the Promo-version then some extra greeblies are required. For my ESB I bought a rubber E-11 from Imperialwarfighters on FB and made said modifications.
Great to see a build here (snowie)

I've ordered some e6000 from amazon, the glue will probably come at the end of the month so I will work on something without that in the meantime.

Nice work :) You could consider to remove the return edge on the hand plates.

The forearms also appear to have minimal edge om the wrist, If any.
