Interesting. A SS Stormtrooper life-size bust might be very cool. But will it be an artistic interpretation sculpt like the SS 1:6 and 1:4, or a cast from a more accurate helmet? Because the 1:4 PF and the 1:6 figure are not that accurate alas.

Re the Stormtrooper: a real prop will probably not be used. IIRC, didn't SS recast a Portumac Vader for their bust? SS will probably recast a fan helmet for the trooper, also, and a "hero" as well.... since a stunt would be hard to fake next to the current offering by RS Props.

Still, looking forward to this next run of 1:1 busts.

If they will recast a good/reasonable fan made helmet that will be ok. But if they decide to sculpt the helmet themselves and make it completely off, like on their figures then not sure.

No, they shouldn't use fan stuff - they should go to the actual source, which is LFL. If using fan stuff, they shouldn't just recast it, but make a deal with the maker to use their interpretation - but then they shouldn't falsely advertise it as anything other than fan derived.

Did they ever reveal all those things at CC?
