Hey all! Hope you are fine. I wanted to start this thread for some time now, but never had enough time. So... I have noticed, and I am sure that most of you have too, that Sadtrooper armor and helmet looks very different from Stromtrooper one. Not talking about the finish ang accesories, but about the armor and how it fits the actors. I think Sandtroopers actors might have been a bit shorter than Stormtrooper actors, and that is why it looks different, but also have another theory. So we can see that TDs in ANH look a bit more, "wide", looks like if armor was assembled to fit larger people than TK. But if actors were shorter, armor would appear wider, cause parts would sit closer to each other due to lesser height of actors. Yes, that sounds right... but... Have you noticed how the helmets practically sit over the actors shoulders? Check this two shots: We can clearly see that the TK is thinner and the TD looks wider, but also that the helmet sits lower on the TK. So, appart from the height, which should not be more than an inch or maybe two, could it be that the Sandtrooper insides had no Foam??? I mean, we have seen this and accept it as the interior of screen used armor. But, can anyone confirm that TD buckets had it too? Maybe yes, and this will end in one reply and we will only stick to the different build of actors theory... but could it be that Screen Used Sandtroopers helmets had no foam??? I can only say, interesting. What do you guys think. And more important, what do you know. Hope to have some experts in the matter thowing some light on this matter! Saludos Juan.
