Seriously cool pictures. Very nice lines and flow to the armor.

Noticed that the hand guards are different than the final on-screen version.

But again... WOW! :drool :drool :drool

Hi Brian,

Great photos :wtf many thanks for these.

Check out the corregated right knee piece it looks much bigger than the final screen version.

Was it always the plan to add the grey and blue paint to the helmets and ab parts or was this decided after the screen tests?

I hope you are saving some more great pics for your book Brian :)

Cheers Chris

Yeah... can't wait for that one. Hope you find a picture of the Vader plaster master for it as well... that'd be super sweet, but I'd buy the book regardless.

..the hand guards, ab detail and lack of shoulder straps (that I can see) all look very Sandtrooper to me...

..and thanks for posting these!!! :thumbsup

No plastic belt either just the canvas belt - needless to say no belt boxes in the equation yet either just like sandtroopers

The sandtrooper scenes in Tunisia were the first trooper scenes filmed weren't they?
