MIMBAN TK CRL/Research Discussion thread.

Recommended Posts

This thread is for all research/CRL ideas to be discussed.

 

I know the only reference image we have is of the lego figure, but this thread is reserved for all the live action images and research we'll be getting this year :) 

 

Something tells me this is going to be a R1TK with a different paint job and..... a CAPE!!!

Are we also thinking that IF stormtroopers are featured they will be R1TKs?

The rangetrooper images that have released are intriguing as well....

The Patrol Trooper looks like a bridge from Phase 2 Clone to the OT TK so I think it is unlikely, but IF old school TKs are in Solo I would assume they would be closer to the R1TK (there’s always the chance they made tweaks as they seem to do in every SW film).

Oh it'll most definitely be altered. I'm betting it'll be an R1TK base, with only slight alterations to it. like how the FOTK in TFA and TLJ only were slightly changed in minor ways.

Aye it'll most likely be an R1 with tweaks. I wonder if that is a camo style paint job...or if this guy is just filthy? Base colour looks grey/silver? And cape..hmm. It might not be a cape as such...Lego has used a cape piece before in place of cloaks,ponchos and robes. Jawa/jedi figs often used one.

It looks like some sort of mud or possibly chipped paint, but we’re going off a minifig here, so... could be anything at this point.

what will be the name of the stormtroopers? STK? or SoloTK?

IF there is a ANH-style TK (which I don't think there will be), SoloTK makes the most sense.

Another thing to consider is that so far, it looks just like a standard TK just painted grey, has either cammo paint job or heavy weathering with a cape. One of the things that'd be important to discuss is whether this should go to FISD or MEPD. I think FISD because of the above points. It looks generic, because the tk doesn't have a specific name, just a general classification. 

 

This is still pretty early unfortunately, so unfortunately this'll slow down the discussion until we can have something more definitive besides a lego mini figure.

As well as paint chips you can see the tan weathering so it would go to MEPD in that case

True.

Normally TK goes on first letter from movie titles TK - ANH, TK - ESB and so on, so Solo would probably be TK - S

 

There is weathering on helmet and chest so if it's dirty you know where it will end up ;) 

 

There isn't a lot of differences in Lego Stormtroopers so I wouldn't be taking too many details from these, can't wait for some screen images.

FWIW, if he's very dirty, the Mimban will likely to go MEPD.  They have the dirty R1s...

if it's a paint job, it could even go to spec ops, right? like the TX Swamp Trooper?

Never understood that logic personally. CRL updates would be so much easier if all the shared suits were in the same detachment.

 

Either way this probably doesn’t end up in FISD if it’s dirty or a recolor, sounds like.

Welp, we got a action figure today. Looks easy enough, its a R1 TK with a  black cloth cloak.  I honestly think there should be dirty and clean variants.

Would this not 100% hinge on whats shown on screen? (I've not found time to watch the trailers yet so clean ones may be a thing).

Looks like the helmet is slightly different to the standard TK, the one on the left appears to have a Blast Shield similar to a Shoretrooper.

They're found on Mimban which is desciribed as a "Swamp Planet", the same place as the Mudtrooper so I'd be willing to bet that it is dirt rather than camouflage.  In which case these guys will going to the MEPD.

MEPD is starting work on the CRL for this. Now we know there are variants as well, some with packs, some with pauldrons, some with both, some with capes/ponchos. All with the new blast shield bucket, and R1 armor. It will likely be based on our Crystal Patrol CRL (finished but no CRL model yet) with some new additions.
