The push-button lid from a Tupperware pitcher. Here are some reference photos. Some are from the Marmit Sandtrooper backpack, which is extremely accurate: Here are several backpacks I've built from scratch. Some production photos Armor Modifications Need replacement decals for your helmet? The bottom slides on around my wrist and the top slides on around my palm. Start by drilling a hole, then rivet through the hole. Click the box to see the process. If you make mistakes, you can just wipe it off with a damp cloth.
The paint colors I used were basically olive-brown, black, and rust. I mixed the colors and dabbed on the paint with an old sock. Then dabbed it some more with a slightly damp sponge. When applying paint to crevices, dab it on, force it into the cracks with a paintbrush, then wipe off the high spots.
When it's still slightly wet, use crumpled paper to create "scratches" in the weathering. You'll also need to replace your lenses with flat green ones. I got a dark green face shield at RJSafety. You can cut it with scissors. Works great for Boba Fett's T-visor too. ANH Armor kit after weathering Version 1: It's made of PVC, plastic and metal. Several base guns will work. You'll find production photos that I took along the way as well.
For weathering the stock, I sponged on layers of color: The magazines were dry brushed with silver, misted with gold for a brassy appearance. Down the midsection I dry brushed silver, then dabbed on rust and gray, let some drip off, and sponged the rest. Down the barrel I used a old sock and dabbed on silver, sponged on rust, drybrushed silver the edge of the holes. Then I covered most of the MG with a clear coat.
I added vinyl decals and weathering based on the ANH reference photos. Here's a few photos The barrel is PVC pipe and other pipe fittings. I cut the wood stock long and slid it into the barrel. Then I screwed it to the underneath of the barrel with 5 screws. Here are the finished photos: I took a 12" Hasbro Sandtrooper available on ebay and customized it to look like me. See photos for tutorial comments. Also, see Loosetoon for a Marmit conversion. Stormtrooper Blaster Kenner Conversion I picked up a few Kenner blasters and converted them adding a fixed folding stock, extending the barrel with a large Listerine bottle cap and painting them with a weathering technique that makes it look like metal.
I used a sharp utility knife for the smaller pieces. When using the knife, lightly score the plastic, bend and snap. I assembled it, then lightly rubbed it with steel wool and painted it with Krylon gloss white.
When gluing, get some clamps as well. Also, buy one of those lifesize cardboard Stormtrooper Standups on ebay. They used rivets on your left side, but on the right, they just let the belt hold it together. On the shins, my legs are skinny enough that I ABS-glued them at the top and left it unglued the rest of the way down. That way they kind of clam-open a little to allow my heel to fit in, they they spring closed once they're on.
I believe that's how they were done in ANH See the opening seen and look at the troopers calves from the back On the shoulders, I added a strip of black strap material with velcro as a bridge between the shoulder bell and the shoulder straps.
For the belt, get some thick leather and trim it to the height of the ammo belt, then paint it white. Rivet or Snap it to the abplate. Then rivet it to the ammo belt so everything stays put.
And yes, I know the knee plate is too high, I've since repositioned it. I've also redone the weathering so it's not so harsh. Love that removeable craft paint!
When suiting up, I put it on in this order: The pouches are almost exactly accurate to the movie props used in ANH. In ANH, the ammo pouch was attached to the backpack strap. This explains why no Sandtrooper without a backpack ever wore a shoulder pouch.
Cut off the loops on the back as close to the pouch as you can. Superglue the ends together and screw or rivet it to the back of back of the ammo pouch. Then rivet the other end to the top of your backpack strap. The only prep I did to the leather was wipe it clean if it was dusty. Just paint on the leather dye, it dries fairly quickly. After it dries, hold it in the sunlight. If you see green showing through, it may need another coat. Open the flaps and lay out flat, spread out, face down.
Cover the back with dye and let dry. Then do the front, starting in the crevices between the pockets. This is done easier by bending it back to spread open the crevices. When dry, spray on the Leather Shene just like you are spray painting. The shene coat is essential, otherwise the dye rubs off easily and all over everything.
Mini Trooper Costume by Andy So you already have your own Stormtrooper costume, but your kids are stuck passing out the candy. Follow Andy's easy tutorial to make the coolest kid-sized trooper armor in the galaxy. Your child will be able to move easily, with no hard edges to pinch! Materials I've attached a pic of the type of foam sheets I used, and the glue.
Almost all the armor was from 3mm thick a few detail strips were 2mm white foam sheets. The bigger 11x14 sheets are best because some pieces are large. The glue is called Omni-Stick, and works beautifully for gluing the foam. It's somewhat thick and gets tacky fast, but I still pressed the pieces together with a board and weights to get a tight, smooth attachment. I also used a bunch of velcro, and some black elastic strips to hold certain parts together with some flexibility.
The whole idea with this costume is that she could wear it with comfort and flexibility, allowing her to still run around and have fun without worrying about pinching herself or wrecking her costume. Although the shoes and white foam armor picked up dirt pretty easily, as you can see from the pics. My idea is if the costume is uncomfortable or fragile, it's not worth wearing!
The hardest part was making the patterns, custom fit to my daughter. I cut and taped paper until I had a good fit, and then cut that shape out of the foam sheet. The 3D stripes on the armor are just thin strips of foam glued onto the surface with square holes cut for that forearm piece.
I glued on velcro strips to make it easy to get the armor pieces on and off. The glove was just a tight-fitting knit glove we found, and I glued the armor piece onto the back. There is probably a better way to do this.
The arm pieces were snug enough to stay in place on her arms all by themselves. Legs The legs were similar, but a bit more complicated because I wanted to add a little secondary curve for her calves and thighs so it didn't look like a straight tube. I did this by making the two velcro edges - on the back of the piece - slightly curved. That way when velcroed together, they make a slight bulge for her calves. You can see the slightly rounded back contour on the pics.
The strip around the top edge of the lower leg piece has to be a bit LONGER around than the actual leg piece, because of the thickness of the armor. Also, I made sure to cut the left lower leg piece to include the kneepad shape, and added a hexagon "ring" piece on top to give it some 3D. For the right knee I just made a separate strip and glued it on at the two ends only, leaving it a little loose in the center for flexibility.
Note the elastic strips that go up from the thighs to the belt's side flaps. The thigh pieces had to be somewhat loose for flexibility, and would fall down if not for that elastic. Torso This is not as complicated as I first thought - basically the front and back torso pieces are flat and kind of featurless. The tricky part, again, was making a pattern to fit her and fit the angle of her shoulders.
Many sheets of paper died to give me this information. Note the front has a top and bottom piece, purely for looks, not for shape. On the back I just added some simple shapes for the "0 1 1" design.
On the shoulder straps, I just used 2mm strips with many little tiny strips glued onto them. I used elastic around the waist for flexibility, and the little white tab on the elastic was just for looks. Believe it or not, the hardest part of the whole costume was the shoulder piece - it has a very pronounced double curve to make that bowl shape.
Note the shape of the pattern I used. The seam was fortunately covered up by the 3D strip on the outside, but holding the seam together while the glue dried was very tough. I suggest finding some sort of bowl that you can tape the foam onto tightly while the glue dries. Note also the elastic band around the bottom of the shoulder piece, to hold it down to her arm.
The elastic at the top to attach it to the front torso is glued a few inches down from the top edge, so that when she raises her arms there is some play there. Waist Again there are some interesting curve shapes with these pieces. Also, the front and back "bibs" go up extra far, so when she bends over they don't pop out form under the torso. I even added an elastic strip at the top of the front "bib" that velcros to the inside of the torso front, to help hold those two pieces together.
Again, more strips glued on for the 3D shapes. For the below-the-belt front and back, I cheated and made them separate and not go down too far to allow her greater freedom when sitting down.
That's also why the thigh pieces don't come up as far, too. Note the side view pics - they show the angles everything was glued together at, to better conform to her body. Not doing this means the "bib" will pop out or the below-the-belt pieces will stick out funny. Note the velcro under the side flaps for the thigh piece elastic strips. Helmet I could not find any kid-sized replica helmets, so I made my own. I also found a kid's Police helmet similar to the one in the picture, except with a clear riot shield and white hinge pieces on the sides more on this below.
I removed the shield and stickers, and cut off the straps and the brim. I made sure to leave a little strip of brim to fit inside the black stripe above the eyes of the mask, to help hold the two together. I also cut the top of the mask off, above that black stripe. Then I drilled some holes in the helmet and used a nail to go through the helmet hinge piece worked great for the ear shape , the mask, and the helmet, bending it over on the inside. The back of the police helmet was cut too high and looked funny, so I just made a "skirt" of foam sheet and glued it around the back.
It didn't have the classic shape, but worked well enough for me. Then I added some padding to the inside to help hold it on her head without a strap I don't like tight chin straps, so I doubt she does. The trick with this is to A make sure there is just enough padding on top so her eyes line up with the eye holes, and B put some padding on the back UNDER the curve of her head, so it tries to pull the helmet down rather than just sitting on top of her head.
The Legion's name is based on a fan organization of the same name ; their inclusion in the official continuity was based on the worldwide organization's dedication to Star Wars fandom. Within the original Star Wars trilogy , several types of "military occupation specialist" stormtrooper units are seen. In Attack of the Clones , Temuera Morrison plays bounty hunter Jango Fett and his multitude of clones, who are the first army of clone troopers.
