stormtroopers in ep VII.

Recommended Posts

i think JJ should use members of the 501st to play stormtropers in order to pay tribute of what kept starwars alive all this years. Also, to keep congruency w ANH. Troopers had different size and builts. 501st troopers are legit they dont need to act.

Hopefully he doesn;t make them all CG troopers

That would be nice if he did choose to use the 501st.  However, if they did,  it would likely fall to the guys in the UK Garrison.  I don't see them paying for a bunch of US stormtroopers to fly across the pond. :(

 

We can always dream.

On the other hand the UKG guys are top notch.

The only problem with getting the 501st for stormtroopers is that we all have different armors from different makers, so the color will be off, the armor will look different unless they only hire people with armor from a certain maker. 

The next thing all the people playing all have to be around the same height, and weight as the movie feels is neccesary fro a Stormtrooper which will be 5'10 - 6' and weighing aorund 160-200 pounds. The next thing is this movie is after ROTJ, So they would

most likely only want ROTJ troopers, and we don't have very many of those, there wouldn't be mixing in with other movie variations. Another problem is this movie takes place 30 years after ROTJ so I'm pretty sure they won't look like they did 30 years ago at all theres gonna be some big changes in the look. But that all does not matter, as Kevin Smith has confirmed that real stormtroopers are already on set so there won't be CGI troopers! We will see real stormtroopers in the movie just not the exact same way they were. :)

pretty sure those "real stormtroopers" are not as devoted as us

Neither were the original Stormtroopers. They were actors, extras and stuntmen. They were paid. I would never say no to getting a part in the movie, but I am just fine with not destroying my own armor to take the falls those troopers are sure to take. As Cristian pointed out, there are way too many variables for them to use 501st. I am happy to do what we do and let them do what they do.

I'm sure we'll all be working overtime at pre-release events to promote the films anyway. There will be many many calls from Mary Franklin for us to all suit up and support the release of the new films. 

 

To me I'd rather be out with the public watching the films than be up on the screen any day. Being the tangible part of the movies is a huge reason why I do this.

Point taken, but it would be sweet to point at the screen and say.."That's me...right there!" In a Star Wars film!

 

-(Maybe that's just the kid in me talking.)

Naw, I appreciate that. It would be cool. Heck, someday you could even go to conventions and say, "I was in VII!"

NAh, this is just a shadow across the eyes caused by the low brow.

From one of the rumors I heard it almost sounded like the new helmets looked like the navy commandos but that's just speculation on my part.

The artist who drew that image--Tom Hodges--says:
1. I won't reveal how I saw the Helmet 2. It was a PHYSICAL helmet, NOT CGI 3. I will do a new version later

 

Take it for what it's worth....

The frown line extending down under the helmet makes appear very bird-like to me.

I'll wait until I see a photo, not just a loose-impressions sketch, before really paying much attention to the new design. Although it is great to know that there will be troopers!

Have you guys seen these yet?  They are rumored to be the Episode VII stormtrooper helmets.  If they aren't, someone put a lot of work into them.  They are pretty darn cool.

Mmmh..it's too much of a sci-fi motorcycle helmet and too little of the typically stormtrooper lineage. Changes are ok for over 30 years...but this is too much in a strange direction.

Call me a fan of the old shool 'original' stormtrooper helmet(it's still always a bad an impolite person ^_^:D  ) and maybe I'm a nagger...I can live with it. But it lacks something for me....
