ok, I know I'm biased towards the pilot costume lately, but let's not forget that the Fleet trooper was my first official SW costume. (it's currently in a state of upgrade now, but will be out in the world during CIII)


So, We have a Squadron name, it's time to get some organization for the troopers.


From the beginning, I have been referring to the NYC area Troopers as Fire Team Echo, so I would like to officially suggest that name to become "Official" 


Also, Let's hear some ideas for A patch design, it's very unlikely that any of this (besides the name) will get done by CIII, but who says that's the deadline for this stuff Smile 


Now, This is not limited to Fleet Troopers, Clone troopers, Hoth Troopers, Endor Commandos, Everyone who's costume is listed in the Trooper catagory is part of this grouping.  (I believe that the Endor Leia, with Pancho has been listed as a trooper, so they are here as well)


So, Star the ideas and discussion flowing.

"I believe that the Endor Leia, with Pancho "


Wasn't she in a flick with Han Sisco?  I keed, I keed!


Just to get a ball rollin: a pair of crossed DH-17s with flames behind them.

How about an upside down RFT helmet filled with a sundae?
JK LOL


Since this all troopers and not just the RFT's, we need something to connect them all.

How about a patch with the Tantive IV and the slogan "Never give up. Never surrender."


Actualy, the Tantive IV would make a cool patch for RFT's.

heh.. quoting myself. love it!



as i think about it, i think the idea of having some funny slogan for RFTs would be great... i love the interview with a fleet trooper that studio creations has.



it sort of alienates the other trooper types though, since they didn't die nearly as often, or as quickly.

A distinction that we can all be proud of. Besides, THEY had Ewoks. All we had were blasters and narrow hallways and invaders who had to come through the door one at a time and...HEY! Wait a minuite. What the heck went wrong?

why wait? I'll kill you now Wink


ok, Let me ask you all this, before we get into the patch design, is there any objection to using the Tag line    "Fire Team Echo" with whatever patch we design?


At least we can settle on this and then concentrate on the patch dsesign.

RFT for Fire Team Echo reporting for duty.


And how about a nifty name for the ladies that wear the RFT and other RL troopers?  The lady Rebel Pilots have "Rouge Squadron" Rouge Squadron Patches so now the lady troopers need a name too.

http://www.starwars.com/databank/ is featuring RFT this week. Note it's says Men and women !


And BTW, did they recently change the replica prop/gun laws in NY? I know they have really strict ones in CA, but it also says that they can't ship the props to NY. (not that I want the super heavy super expensive official one, but I do want a blaster) http://shop.starwars.com/catalog/product.xml?product_id=2340;category_id=315 By law, this item can not be shipped to California, New York, Connecticut and Kansas; Canada and Mexico.
