    New Trooper costumes for EIII?

    I was just wondering who here would like to see new Trooper costumes for EIII?

    If so, what would you change? Get rid of those helmet fins? Loose the T visor? Completly change them into Stormtrooper outfits?

    I personally do not want to see them change the Trooper outfits.

    Why?

    Because I'm having a hard enough time with building my armies of Clone Troopers and Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers, Snowtroopers and Scout Troopers.

    However, with that said, and considering that the spoiler mill is already saying that GL will have us going back to Tatooine for EIII we may well see a new spin on the old theme. Clone Sandtrooper? Howabout Clone Lavatrooper?

    May the force be with you.

    SK99, there is only a small shot that takes place in E3 on Tatooine. That's why it was filmed in Tunisia during E2 filming. George didn't want to have to take a crew and fly to Tunisia, just for one minor shot. So they just filmed it while they were there for E2. Smart thinking from Lucas.

    Supposedly it was Obi-Wan delivering the infant Luke Skywalker to Owen and Beru. I believe a picture even appeared in the Insider of Ewen from the filming of that scene. I don't recall what issue, but I am pretty sure that that info is likely correct.

    As for there being a different CloneTrooper armor in E3, I doubt it. There is 18 years between the end of E3 and the start of E4. I don't expect them to change to the lighter and less restrictive StormTrooper armor, until after the Clone Wars is over. When the CloneTrooper/StormTroopers become more of a police force, then an army.

    Thanks for the info, I don't follow the spoiler stuff too close, though I don't exactly avoid it either.

    BTW, you failed to mention my Clone Lavatrooper idea.

    I don't know about LavaTroopers. But SpaceTroopers would be cool to see. I also always wanted to see ScubaTroopers, but that is sounding way to G.I. Joeish.

    So the lavatrooper would have lava-proof armor, I'm assuming?
    Then we won't get treated to the tortured screams of clonetroopers as they get lava splashed on them, or plummet into a lava pool.

    I don't know, lavaproof armor might look pretty cool, but I wouldn't call them "lavatroopers." Reminds me of that soap.

    Howabout:

    Geo Trooper (too Green Peace)
    Molten Trooper (too Canadian Beer)

    ?

    Any ideas?

    If you think Stormtrooper armor is less constrictive than Clonetrooper armor, then you haven't worn the Stormtrooper armor. I've heard that the Clonetrooper armor is much easier to manuver in.

    Not according to the official info on the armor. The CloneTrooper armor is heavier and more restrictive to move in, due to the fact it has less non-armored sections and holds up to weapon fire better.

    The E2 Visual Companion states this, and also states that lighter and less restrictive armor was being developed. But that it would likely not protect as well. That's why the CloneTrooper armor works better then the StormTrooper armor.
