    StarAlien70's 3.75" SA Han & Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise

    These are a couple of figures I did a while ago and having seen that Hasbro are due to release a new TVC Han Stormtrooper, I thought I would show them now. My reason for doing these was because I find the hip ball-joints frustrating, particularly with Stormtroopers, as you have to twist the thigh 90 degrees to sit the figures. So to remedy this, I wanted to get the extra thigh articulation that the new SA and TBS 6" figures have (which I don't think the new TVC Han is going to have).

    I didn't want to destoy my TLC Han & Luke, so I kitbashed some Stormtroopers. Both use chest section and arms from TAC Stormtrooper. Abdomen section, modified belts and modified legs from TBS Stormtrooper; legs are fitted with hip joints from Tron figures for more articulation at the thigh.



    Han: Head from VOTC figure. Belt from TBS Stormtrooper modified to have removable thermal detonator, attaches using small magnets from Star Wars Saga figures.



    Luke: Head from TLC Saga Legends Luke X-Wing. Removable belt modified from TBS Stormtrooper fitted with clip for comlink, and mock grappling hook.



    Removable belt also fits VOTC Luke figure.

    Here's an update on the Han & Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise.

    I wanted to use the Rogue One Single carded Stormtrooper head for these, as it's such a good helmet. I initially wanted to do it as a removable helmet, but it's too small to drill out and fit over a reasonable sized head. So I just drilled it to fit as an alternate head-helmet. As it was going to be a headswap anyway I decided to try different heads and I think the TLC Han Death Star and TBS Luke Yavin work well, both fit well without modifying too.
    I wanted Luke to be 'a little short…', so I hollowed out the recess in the upper torso a bit more to make it fit lower. It's not much but I think it improves the Luke Stormtrooper look, especially with the helmet head on, which I also drilled a little deeper than the one for Han.



    Trash Compactor Luke with alternate 'wet look' head modified from a TAC Concept Luke.

    Terrific! And those helmets sure are gorgeous sculpts compared to any previous ones.

    These updated figures look awesome. Those helmets do look fantastic and I like the new head swaps.
