Stormtrooper Oddities - What have you noticed?

Recommended Posts

Stormtrooper Oddities - What have you noticed?

There you are watching your favourite Star Wars movie and then you notice something odd with a particular Stormtrooper that you hadn't seen before, there are a lot of oddities seen in the movies, some are really common, here's one of the most recognisable "Mr No Stripes"

Now that doesn't mean you can rush out and pull off your tube stripes and get approval for another version of Stormtrooper, CRL's are made with consistency in mind so if you only see one of a particular thing it's an oddity and won't be in the CRL's ;) 

 

Seems the more times you watch the movies the more you notice and especially once you research a particular costume/character, so what have you noticed?, let's see the obscurest you have found so far.

 

I'll start the ball rolling, I thought I'd seen them all but I must admit I hadn't noticed this trooper's oddity until just recently, seems to have been in a hurry to dress and forgot which shin goes on what side.

Now lets see your most obscure oddity, post away.

We like to joke at troops about all the TKs held together with gaffers/duct tape, so that when something inevitably breaks whilst trooping taping it back together is ‘screen accurate’.

ROTJ is great for these.

 

My favourite has always been this guy, far right.

With that droopy brow trim, he looks so sad!( and he should be super happy seeing as he's just inherited a bowcaster!)

That trooper is just a grown up version of Chaka from Land of the Lost.  They had to mod his lid to fit.

I always enjoyed the stormtrooper from ESB when Vader and Lando are talking who has his arm basically falling off.

Tony shared these recently... Rubber thighs! (Note how there are waves, and that it buches up).

Geez these costumes are awful.  Who'd ever want to dress up like that!

I don't have a picture of it, but my favorite is in ANH when the TKs are marching down a hall and half their shins are flapping open and closed in the back.  (Pretty sure it's ANH...). Somebody didn't velcro correctly!

Here's one. Probably loose elastic as they used the hook/elastic method on the closures ;)

We do have to thank them for this, though, because now we know how that suit was constructed for our CRL.  :laugh1:

I'd sell my Skyhopper for some rubber thigh pieces.  Those were the lucky ones.

Those onset pyrotechnics terrify me.  Especially this poor dude at 8m35s that has to go flying.

 

 

Wouldn't want to take that bump in costume. :unsure:
