Latex handguards

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i was just wondering..i do own a pair of latex handguards though when looking to ANH again..and again...and again..i notice this version of latex handguard.

Those handguards were worn on the "hero" costumes by Luke and Han. 

I dont believe the sandtroopers were those specific handguards.

Thanks for your reply CC :duim: i have the whole picture here of the trooper wearing this version of handguard..so i wasn't sure that all or some  troopers including Sandies wearing these version of handguard ?!

Armor parts were mixed and matched to actors through out all the shooting of ANH.
Those specific scenes onboard the tantive IV were the last ones to be shot. So those armors are the most damaged and mixed configurations from all the movie.

Many changes were done from Tunisia to London in stormtrooper armor. Mostly to cover malfunctioning of the costume but also very improtant, because the Sandtrooper armor in Tunisia was actually a beta version of the stormtrooper armor.
It was rushed into set and not fully finished.
So the art departments improved and finished the look of stormtrooper armor after their experience in Tunisia.
Many new things were added including new handguards, neckseals, dropboxes, thermal detonators and many other details.

Hope that helps.

Saludos.
