Has the original tupperware box been ID'd?

Recommended Posts

I'm talking about the small box on the upper left of the move along pack. I know it's a tupperware container, but does anyone know the exact type/model/size?

Yes! I have known what this part is for years.. Sorry I thought everyone knew. It is still made today, although the outer lip edge is slightly off. Look for it on ebay as well. It is a meat keeper. That is for the trooper on the right.

The trooper on the left has a large clear storage container. I actually found 3 of them and could not believe it. I am compiling a list of the parts and their numbers since tupperware does not change them.

BTW, in the star wars universe that is called the:

personal effects/food storage plasteel container (imperial issue)

I got bored at work yesterday and I went through and named EVERY PART of the packs. If I have the time I will try to get a chart done soon.

matt, after all these years in the frontline of armor and stuff you become more and more the "deep throat" of trooper related stuff...

i knew you were one of the best resource for screenaccurate information!

it´s good to have someone with all these information with us!

i´m very curious about your parts list for the backpacks!

I still can't see the tupperware logo on that photo. if we ALL pull together and help out we could ALL get this right and maybe then we would all be singing off the same song sheet.

I would have to say the answer is one of the following;

1) the circle logo was sanded away before it was painted

2)The detail in that shot is obscured by the lighting

3) the paint was thick enough at that spot to obscure the circle.

You definately have the right part for the shallow tupperware box. (shown on the far right & center of the photo above)

I answered this question in another thread.

They are two different boxes on two different back pack designs.

For replicated examples, you can reference Brak's pack for the Tupperware meat container (with the slightly contoured sides), and my pack for the basic 'box'. The top I acquired from TE, it's 6.5in x 10.75in. The sides I made from sheet styrene.

There is a part that is more like 5"x9", which seems closer to the reference. The different containers are almost identical in overall appearence though.

While I initially also believed the container on the right to be a meatkeeper (which is approx 5"X9") I no longer believe that to be accurate. I believe what is seen on the trooper on the right is actually a Tupperware "Stow N Go" Craft Box which is 6"X9". While the overall shape size is very similar, I think from the images below you will see the Stow N Go is more accurate than the meatkeeper.

Also, while it is not super clear, I believe you can see the tape over the logos in these pics... I know I have some more that show it better... trying to find them now...

Stow N Go on Left. Meatkeeper on Right. You decide.

i was wondering if the larger box on the left trooper had its lid on as well and just placed upside down, or if you guys think they took the lid off.

I had the same problem in Australia. Do what I did. Send a email with a photo of an ‘stow and go’ to everyone you know! I started with my family. I sent one to my Brother , sister and mother. In one day I had two!

Good luck. Niko.
