So I'm assuming his E-11 has a laser sight on the barrel there? Maybe that means these guys will aim better than the "basic" Imperial troops. 'Cause clearly the regular scopes on the "regular" E-11s and DH-17s aren't worth squat.
So, according to the official LEGO set descriptions posted on the main page, he is wearing magnetic boots:
:whistling:And I'm getting the impression that their boots are indeed magnetic...
Nah, I didn't call it, it was just revealed in the LEGO set description.So, according to the official LEGO set descriptions posted on the main page, he is wearing magnetic boots:
I'm gearing him up with this: https://www.shapeways.com/product/5...black-dlt-19x-sniper-6-quot?optionId=64940488Giving this guy the rifle from the Snow/Stormtrooper helps his look. Seems more fitting to have a long rifle with a scope.
That's pretty cool, but I better not get started on the custom 3D printing of accessories. That could get out of hand quickly.I'm gearing him up with this: https://www.shapeways.com/product/5...black-dlt-19x-sniper-6-quot?optionId=64940488
Okay, so that IS how it's supposed to work? Because I was playing with mine last night trying to get him in a shooting pose. When the left hand slid outward I panicked and quickly put him back into the box thinking I was on the verge of doing some damage.Just discovered his wrist pegs are designed to slide in and out of the forearm. This allows you to use some of the wrist articulation. Very nice!
Yeah...I kind of worry that someone just came up with the idea of “Stormtroopers with magnetic boots!” and then they wrote in the whole train sequence to justify that...While it doesn't look as bad as i originally thought, there are still some aspects of it that don't make a whole lot of sense to me. Those huge, oversized boots don't really fit in with the Star Wars aesthetic at all, they seem more generic sci-fi/futuristic. The big thick coat is something that seems a bit strange considering they appear to be wearing the main body armour of Cold Weather Stormtroopers who are already meant to operate in freezing conditions and they wear less. It's mainly the shoulder fur that makes it look quite silly, though.
It sounds reasonable until you realize that Han’s just wearing his regular trousers and boots under his coat and only a pair of goggles to protect his face from the wind.Okay, so your primary role is to guard high speed rail trains in an already cold environment. Wouldn't you want a nice fur lined coat to help with the immensely powerful windstreams you'll feel?
I can imagine that feeling puts Hoth to shame. Hell on decent day the wind from your car window can feel cold.
Think about it guys.
Yes but Han and co. are just there for a heist. Quick in and out.It sounds reasonable until you realize that Han’s just wearing his regular trousers and boots under his coat and only a pair of goggles to protect his face from the wind.
Well, train robberies are one of the oldest Western tropes (one of the first ever narrative films is 1903's "The Great Train Robbery"). I think it's more likely they had to try to figure out how to a "train" would work in a world with antigravity and hyperspace, and then they worked backward from there in terms of how to have an action sequence on said train, and then came up with the idea of "Stormtroopers with magnetic boots!"Yeah...I kind of worry that someone just came up with the idea of “Stormtroopers with magnetic boots!” and then they wrote in the whole train sequence to justify that...
The fur piece actually spins around freely so you can center it or align it to your liking. I think it's just a circle of fake fur with a hole in it.Saw one of these at Target today--everything else new was gone, though. I was tempted to pick it up, but the fur collar on the specimen I found wasn't particularly nice; it looked like it wasn't properly centered. Also, I briefly saw these on Amazon for less, so I figure if I really want one I'll just keep an eye out there. Looks cool and has nice heft to it, though.
