They were certainly built as practical driving vehicles for stunts, and given the logic of the caterpillar track it stands to reason they “should” be land based.

Agreed, and this is certainly why the ACD, who only have 8 costumes will pursue it.

I'm a bit torn here. I can definite see Pathfinders wanting this but man this would be nice to have here, not to mention we would give it far more attention.

The reality is, which detachment is best able to support this costume?  It's pretty much an FOTK, and if this were to go to another det nearly all the trim/build/armor type threads - we have a massive knowledge base here that they do not.  

 

In the end, I think the people making the costume should have ultimate say though.

I don’t agree with the current way costumes are split based on story or political reasons to begin with. If it shares 75%+ with the FOTK it should be here IMO... but if it were up to me Shadow Scout and TB would be together and magma/shadowtroopers would be groups with white TKs.

Well, as you know the reason SpecOps existed is because there was no FISD at the time, so they needed something for EU TK's.  Had FISD been created earlier in the Legion's history, then BlackOps, etc. & Magma would be in FISD as they are just TKs with paint, and SpecOps would continue to have any non-base TKs.  At this point though the BlackOps trooper being the first ever costume in SpecOps and the core it was built around, I just can't see this getting changed anytime soon.

The RP is another example of a custom that would never have been created in any other year, and should die.

Some new retail item images are doing the rounds.


We know they simply cleaned up and reused FOTK kits from TLJ but will be interesting to see if TROS features both TFA and TLJ kids as seen here. It’s quite possibly lazy art design.

Would be nice to see Veterans and the like with older armour like the old mark 6 and earlier armour with space marines.

A small update on the FO Treadspeeder trooper.

Armour base is First Order but with white canvas like material trousers. The shins and knees were all bench built.

The boots worn by the stunt team were a style of Alpine Star motorbike boots with plates, etc stuck on top to hide the provenance.

And from the left. Those gaskets are as ugly as the face.

*facepalm* I did not initially see this as figure's left arm, thought it was the right initially

so my first thought was "was this designed by some dude who has never actually seen the chest of an actual woman?"

carry on.

Jet trooper is much better in red, maybe when I get done with the First Order Mountain Trooper gonna wait till after movie to pursue next costume, but in all honesty I should take a step back from all this costume building to focus on around the house projects.

 

I do have a feeling though Mountain Trooper is gonna consume most of my energy writing the CRL than making my case only to get fully rejected. But hey I'm set up for the worse lol, worse being I have a fun unique costume for Celebration

The knights of Ren, very reminiscent of the Seven Samurai. 

Be nice to see them have a good bit of screen time.

S.H.Figuarts are getting in on the action. Always nicely detailed.
