Recommended Posts

I was just about to say.. Coverstrips do look very thick. But, I am going to be happy to see them in a new movie again. :duim:

Aaw yeh, 99.9% of the public won't be able to tell the difference between an ANH oufit and the Rogue One version.

Good times :)

What? No ear gaps? These helmets might be one piece. Frown may not have cut-out teeth. Could just be black paint. And they all look the same. Hmmmph. I guess Ben was right. Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise.

Just a few observations from the attached photos of the new "Hawaii" Trooper.....sorry, it has that look to me :)

 

Looks to be some sort of grey or black connection between chest and back pieces.

 

More of a pronounced raised area on the hand guards, near the wrist end.

 

Thigh/Knee ammo pack looks to be in a different fixed position.

 

The belt now looks to be attached or fixed along the break line between chest and cod piece.

 

Of course all of these observations could be wrong, one cleaner photos arrive.

Something is just not right about these new ones now I can see them up closer.  I am now having a '83 Jedi feeling all over again.

Are we sure? It could just be the lighting.

Tweaking exposure and colour saturation, they look different, although some are in shadow

Yeah. I did that as well. I believe that they are blue and grey. I'll just wait to get more images.

Notice the belt has the smaller boxes in the front and it's wide above the drop boxes.

 

The adjusted photo shows two colors on the ab dots.

 

Looks like a strap from the chest to back on the sides under the arm

the overall shape of the thigh armour looks off to me

Drop boxes seem to be attached with a black elastic/webbing. Larger gap between belt and drop boxes too. There doesn't seem to be a seam at the front of the thighs by the knee.

Does the center trooper have different shoulder and bicep then the rest ? Looks like a raised detail. Also looks like the belt contours to the ab ?

Yeah, definitely noticed the square/rectangular button replaced on the big ab button plate.

The Single "Button" on the ab is no Button. It's square shaped.<br><br>

Edit reason: Too slow ;-)

I think the biggest change here is how they modified the helmet. The height of the teeth has been reduced a lot compared to the OT and it now looks like a Master Replica helmet. I know it's something R. McQuarrie wanted but I think he was wrong on that point.

It also looks like they recessed the tubestripes.

The chest plate looks also bad. It seems very narrow, a bit like the AP chest plate.

The thighs... They butchered them. They're totally lacking the amazing aesthetic lines they had.

 

Side note, the gloves appear to be FOTK gloves but in all black.

 

Overall, I'm still very disappointed by these new stormtroopers. However, I don't think they would spoil me the film. I'm actually far more concerned about everything else, script, characters, and such...
