Episode 9 Stormtrooper research (Caution Spoilers Ahead)

Recommended Posts


It also appears that above we were going to try and let bygones be bygones. I believe Tony is asking here because he was removed and blocked from said Facebook group so he feels this is the only place he can ask you to join the group. I am also asking to be able to join as well since I as removed and blocked. I asked Kevin about it and he is unsure why I was removed and I should ask you. 


I’m not really interested in discussing the FB group here.

As someone who laboured hard to build a stormtrooper kit and join the 501st I earned the right to be a part of this detachment. I’m not breaking any rules or code of conduct with my activity within this forum. I post helpful information and support members in their build threads.

As Admin of the external group I have been very clear about remaining independent. We don’t answer to any organisation or it’s members. We don’t have to. There are no reciprocal agreements.

I hate playing tit for tat but if you’re asking me about blocked memberships perhaps Tony could take a moment to explain why he blocked me from the Anovos First Order Build Group last year. Seems like anyone can do it!

If you want to remove me from the detachment please go ahead, and provide me and the wider membership with the reason for doing so.

Gentlemen, can I request that any discussion of the group is done elsewhere.  This is a research thread.

 

If you wish to remain open and transparent about it by all means start a new thread (or I can split this one), though please remain courteous.

So I saw one of the KB guys post this on IG just now.. not sure where he got this but it’s the close up of the guard I was looking for. Such an interesting character. Too bad they didn’t get more screen time like Snoke’s guards did.

Based on the timing and the layout, it looks like it's most likely from the Art of book for TROS.

Those are sweet. Digging those helmet designs.

I'm getting some serious tank driver vibes from some of those helmets, and while I love the tank troopers, I am not sure how I feel about a guard wearing similar helmets to them. The other designs however, I love. They remind me of Revan's helmet.

Concepts that look closer to the old helmet would’ve been better, ILO.

The cowl and dome are representational of the style of the original upper section of the helmets from RotJ.

This is what I was thinking as well.  The one that made it on screen is nice, but all those other designs look cool as hell...

There are several modelers working on these at present so there wont be a shortage of supply that is for sure.

Files are already available to print your own.

I do like it. But not enough to build another character. I’d go Mandalorian or get better quality pieces to upgrade my Obi Wan.

I gotta get me one of those printers. Seems dangerous though. The ability to make things.. I don’t have the room to display all the stuff I’d wanna print!
