A few parsecs ago when E2 was premiered, I saw a pic of some chappy in a Stormtrooper costume that had the US flag design on it.

I am wanting to make this as a figure, and also do one with the UK flag (as i'm from the UK)

Does anybody know of a link to a picture of this trooper guy, or can post a pic in this thread.

I would be most grateful to anyone who can help.

Cheers ACPin, Thats the pic I was after. Just finished my custom of it, also done a UK custom too. If I had a decent camera I would post pics.

Maybe somewhen :D

OK, made them & got pics. Not very good pics as they were done from a cheap & cheerful digital camera.

Feel free to let me know what you think. :D

Your Union Jack one looks very cool. The US one is great too. The stars on the US flag are real hard to paint I'm sure.

Great Job. I wounder what made the guy who inspired you want to alter his very expensive Stormtrooper outfit. Patriotic or not, that suit couldn't have been cheap.

I think he could've just used terpatine (sp?) to remove the paint or something. Though I dunno if that would've damaged the armor. He could've just painted it white again anyways. ;) Or he was able to get a set of that armor for cheap or from someone who didn't want it anymore.

Very cool! turned out nice! I plan on making the USA one myself. I even made a custom card for it. Feel free to use it if you want! ;)

That's a very cool custom. I actually saw footage of the guy who had that on his Stormtrooper outfit on MTV the other day.

I decided to make this figure too! I just finished him last night, and I carded him on that custom card I made. I'll have pics shortly.

Thanks for the replies guys. Most appreciated.

I have a few other spare stormtroopers about, but I am undecided as what to do with them next. I was thinking about more flag designs but not sure which ones to do.

Any Ideas ??

Also thanks to Mandalorian30, great card, I may have too use it, once I get the hang of making cards.
