Wow amazing shots!  Thanks so much Paul!

 

That figure would certainly be a great start for a CRL reference!  It might be a stretch (especially considering they were in the film for < a second) but maybe one of the screen used ones will turn up.

Anyone in the USA doing a run of these? I want to upgrade my ANH Stunt

I may be open to selling mine - TBH I don't have much time to troop this year and at least it would get used.

Anyone have one of these for sale and that will be approved?

You could try to message @CrookKnight I know he did a build and offers other packs

I'm not sure this is the right thread, but I asked David Berry who worked on the production of A New Hope at ILM for any information regarding the spacetrooper backpack. I got this answer

Sorry, I am afraid that I do not have any information on this. ILM did not manufacture any of the costumes for the first Star Wars film. If I were to guess, it would've been the English crew working from concepts based on Ralph McQuarrie's designs (or maybe Joe Johnston), but putting their own spin on the final design. But again, that is a guess, what do I know, that was a long, long time ago...
Cheers, DaveB

 

It is not any news per se but I'll keep on digging! :salute:

I have a hard copy of the below which was chock full of historical information, and well worth the hard cover admission price (you can find them used for $28 or so).

Some additional info and versions of the space pack

 

Different versions of the space pack exist, there was a poll in 2010 in regards to the earlier design and what versions it would be added too. CRL had been updated a few times to now have the @crookknights Hot Toys pack version.

 

 Poll which packs which CRL's 2010

Amazing @gmrhodes13

Where is the proof that Joe Johnston is wearing two right glove plates? The only thing I've seen is one right plate on the left glove, you kind of don't see what kind of a plate the right glove has!

We are limited as to what reference were available from back then, not like these days, I guess someone believed the other handplate was a right one being a right handed glove, who knows, without further references we may never know.

Just a quick FYI.. Shawn (CrookKnight) sold all his files and designs for HWT, Sandie, Space packs etc. to Dave at AM a few years ago.  Dave is now making all of them.  The outside design is pretty straightforward, but the insert tube is open to interpretation.  Since no one will ever see it you can take some "artistic license" and have a bit of fun.  I used all kinds of odd bits and bobs in mine:

Yes I'm aware, I purchased a set of spacepack files from Crookknight before he sold everything ;) 

 

Nice work on the internals, I may add some lights and sound to mine, once I get to it again, it's on the never ending list.

 

Ox Props also does a space pack from ANH and also a Rogue One version. His to me looks to be spaced a little better, width as well as height of the cylinders.

For anyone interested here is a comparison of the files

Yeah that spacing from OX looks way more proportioned to the cylinders on the Death Star!

OX Props looks great, but he doesn't make the actual parts, which crookknight does.

 

So, unless someone is willing to print/build a pack from OX Props, the rest of us our SOL in that regard.

 

In the end though, it's great to see these getting some love. I remember the first space pack I bought that was very crude but worked, much like back 15 years ago as a sandtrooper we had to make our packs out of items we found in Good Will and Walmart, even making our own frames from PVC as there were no suppliers on anything.
