Did this comparison of a piece of art that theforce.net had on their site and a picture of an early royal guard costume concept, from the book 'The star wars archives.'
What do reckon - is this the real inspiration for the descriptions of the clonetroopers wearing helmets with eyeslits and a ridge over the top? Is this how the clonetroopers will look? No-one really knows do they? I'd love for the clones to wear armour like this, all dark and mysterious and dangerous looking. It would be too much of a copout if they wore something that resembled the stormtrooper armour. This would look far more like something out of an RKO serial like flash Gordon that George seems to want to ape.
