I'm a little too old for Star Wars. You have to be a certain age to have been there for the films and the toys. My brother in law was, and is a hard core fan. This evening he turned up with this...



The helmet from a full scale storm trooper suit he's got.



...but nothing is that simple.



Despite costing an arm and a leg the suit needs building/customizing and generally working on to make it fit.



Hopefully some WIP pics will follow! Rolling Eyes

Sinister Smiley face.....?? Have a look!

Yeah he wants to wear it to the 'events' etc.

I can see good and bad points to this stormtrooper suit lark. Bad as in anyone who knows what I'm like at finishing projects will know my bro in law will need an imperial issue zimmer frame by the time the suit is ready...
..and good as in will he be a terrible shot and be unable to hit anything when he's wearing it thus meaning I'll be able to beat him at Xbox games?? lol!

That's the one Ross! The one's who's latest film offering I considered a waste of £20 and two hours of my time!...but...poor old bro in law looks at it all with the same warm glow of childhood nostalgia than we see our VAM with.

I'd also admit that a long, long time ago in a galaxy far far away when I as a teenager used to go round to see his big sister/my future wife, I'd often 'help' him with his Star Wars figures while I was waiting for her. It was a great toy line and talking about that with the little brother was easier than trying to make awkward conversation with the dad! lol!

Same as me captain, great scene loved it and still do.
I think must be an age thing you can either be too young or too old to be influenced by the original Starwars films.
They're a bit like Marmite you either love them or hate them.
They're probably the only bit of sci,if I enjoy, loved the new movie.
