I have a close up photo of the boots used and they were the original ANH 'Stuart' boots with black soles. The photo is on my old hard drive, unfortunately, and I have no idea where it is at the moment.

Also, I don't think the armour used was original ROTJ. I would guess they were suits made after ROTJ with the flexible shoulder straps riveted on. The main reason I don't think they are ROTJ (but definitely ROTJ based tour suits) is one of the left thighs has the distinctive ANH shape = something I have never seen on any ROTJ based armour. Look at the guy 2nd from left.

Regarding the ab buttons, it looks as though just the middle buttons were painted.

Just so I make sure I get the pack right.  Below are the pictures I took wearing the pack.  Please review and let me know if I need to change anything.

Keep in mind I consider this a level 1 pack made with a base that people can get.

The level 2 is going to have a vacformed base for 100% accuracy.

 

And yes.....I know.....the armor is not correct....:duim:

Pack looks really cool Bro!

 

Congrats! Great work.

 

 

So far, the only mayor difference I can see is that the top "canister" or part of the "mortar tube" (if we can asume that is what it is), should be white, according to my references...

 

 

 

Here a a couple LFL archives and behind the scenes shots. Hope they help!

THX Paul!

 

This is the kind of expert assessment we need to make this really accurate.

 

 

 

 

So...

 

I was talking to Justus and the Command Staff, and thought that probably TE derived armor, "re-engineered" back into a Tour suit could be closer to SE than full ROTJ.

 

 

 

 I can see some similar ways of strapping the armor to that in RTOJ armor. No elastic around biceps on shoulder bells. Round trimming of shoulder bells.

 

 

 

I think drop boxes are wider in shape than ANH, but maybe they are not. And yes, left thigh has a round top... but then I saw one trimmed trooper with a thigh trimmed and put together differently. Should be just how it was assembled, but I think it shows it is not 100% ROTJ armor or even moulds.

Shoulder bells do look ROTJ to me. But then, I dont know Tour armor, just TE derived. So, dont know if the Tour Shoulder bells look like this too. I know TE derived don't. At least, not when trimmed ANH style.

Helmet was probably refurbished from ROTJ, or recast from the same molds... and weathered in location  (just as with ANH)...

And boots, in the mean time while Troopermaster can find the hard drive. I have this, its not a close up but I think it does show quiet clearly they had black soles...

Awesome!

I'll post all my backpack backstage references for you... 
Cause I think that there is a grey canister there too. Maybe the same color as the ANH blueish grey.
Don't know...

Don't mean that you must change your pack, just wanted to share my references and maybe go deeper into some research to help you and the CRL.

 

Hope that helps!

Thank you. It is not a problem for me to change my pack as most of those pieces are 3D designed and printed

This is part of the same file I sent to the CS when we started working on the CRL. But now I realize I should have shared them with the whole community.

So, I am posting them now...


This are screen grabs I did from a VH1 documentary on SW Special Edition a few years ago. I found it on youtube. Cant remember the name but shouldnt be too difficult to find. It only spends a minute or minute and a half on Sandtroopers, but there are images there I had never seen before....

So... Here they are:

They are screen grabs from a VH1 special about the SE. Don't know when the show actually run on tv. But I found the video o you tube. Apparently and for the date of the files, in 2011.

There is only about 1 minute or so on the sandtroopers but enough material to helps us with the CRL
