Thoughts on the magma trooper?

Recommended Posts

I think it looks pretty dang good, but having that hose/tubing connected to the helmet would probably limit head movement. I also really like the shin guards as well.

I think they're awesome (though I'm a sucker for a DLT-19). Especially love the shin guards. Curious why we need to protect armor with more armor, but they're cool nonetheless! :P

I'm also a fan of the weathering. Black ash and soot type of look.

Where is this from?  Man, it looks pretty cool and it is great to see another variation for the ROTJ trooper.  CRL shouldn't take long to do...

This is from the new Battlefront along with these other new/slightly different troopers.

The red armored troopers I thought were known as Magma Troopers. I guess they changed it to Crimson Troopers now and this respirator trooper is a Magma now  :blink:

Until such time as someone completes this and we move it to its own thread, I put it in ROTJ as it's based on the ROTJ trooper...

If there was enough interest in this costume, I would consider sculpting and making the shin guards. I already offer full ROTJ kits so I could provide the shin guards with a full kit or individually.

 

As a side note, I can offer full kits in red ABS too :)

I'm definitely going to have a crack at this, started some sketches of the pack so i can work it out

 

Paul, I may need some of those glorious RotJ parts you've made ;)

 

Some more reference pics:

From what i can see:

 

RotJ armour

Custom air pack

Faceplate and hose

Black Pauldron - not smooth, more of a Leatherette finish

Custom Shin guards

 

I imagine turning my head is going to be a big issue unless i can get some very flexible hose, and Its going to be a pain to do that pack but i do like a challenge :)
