    The side shot picture you have is from the Smithsonian exhibit. I've seen that picture before.

    Actually, in terms of glass or perspex or plexiglas or whatever you want to term a dark transparent substance, the denser the pigmentation the darker the colour. Therefore deep red looks black in certain light or without a light source shining through it. There is no black where glass like substances are concerned. if it was black that would imply an absense of light completely and all you would see is dark nothingness like a black hole. Most 'black' things are that way from densities of colour. you will most likely find that a black t-shirt for example is actually dark blue or green or yellow or red. This will only become apparent after the fibres have been knocked around a little and the broken ends will show lighter than the fabric itself giving the impression of a lighter shirt. Which will undoubtedly be one of those four colours. Following me okay? The visor on the royal guards helmet is most probably a dark reddish brown like sunshades used to be. Vaders original helmet probably used old sunshade lenses because everything in that film was recycled stuff cobbled together on a tight budget.
    As to these images you show us GNT, so far they have all been ROTJ ones. They official site has just looked out old images for the sake of posting something. I would imagine that the AOTC ones will have something similar to the EP1 ones in a slit down the face. the difference will be a lack of plumes on top of the helmet and the colour of the costume. Unless Lucas is just gonna be lazy and re-use the old costumes to get his moneys worth out of them. Actually that sounds more plausible as I type it. I suggest a new game, let's see how much OT and EP1 stuff gets recycled for these next two movies. Is Lucas flash with the cash or just a skinflint?

    Then what about the EP2 picture?

    Looks like one of the pics from either the chronicles book or the art of jedi to me. At the end of the day, if Lucas has done some tinkering with the guards he may be keeping the final look under wraps. Or, this is just a filler pic of a royal guard because royal guards were mentioned in the text of the article. It's not uncommon for errors to make it into print is it? I still don't see this as being an actual ep2 pic just a pic to illustrate an ep2 article because everyone assumes that the royal guards will look like - well, royal guards. They could be red and have no actual bearing on their jedi counterparts. I know that's unlikely but I'm simply hypothesising. If someone can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is an actual ep2 pic then I'll back down and accept it as such. Until then, I remain argumentatively yours

    Unhappy

    I take the metaphorical icon of shame. the official site has posted a new feature on the design of Palpatines office which has a pic of a royal guard standing next to a statue in the office. It's the exact same guards as in Jedi. So it looks like I owe GNT an apology. Guess we'll be getting that resculpt of the Jedi royal guard after all. Now we know why we haven't had one up 'til now.

    Talking

    To be honest I was going to post that pic of the Ep2 Royal Guard and reveal Jargo for the fraud he is, but he beat me to it.
