OK, sometimes I get these crazy ideas that I never actually follow up on, but I like to share with friends. Here is something that popped to mind the other day…
I am currently putting together my first set of Stormtrooper armor. I am on the waiting list for a kit, but it will be 6+ months until my big brown box full of plastic bits arrives. However, I was told there isn’t a wait for a set of black Shadowtrooper armor.
Now, the Shadowtroopers are pretty cool looking, but they are not “my thing”, so I’m going to wait for a white kit instead of jumping on the black armor now. But, the thought of black armor lead me to my silly, non-cannon, idea.
I would like to build “Negative Trooper” armor. What I mean by “negative”, is, like in a film negative, where everything that is white is black, and everything that is black is white.
So, picture if you will, a regular set of Stormtrooper armor, but instead of a black under suit, you were a white under suit. Instead of a black holster, you have a white holster. Instead of black gloves, you wear white gloves. And so on and so on and so on…
I’ve taken an image of a TK and ran it through photoshop to give you an idea of what I’m talking about.
Now, I don’t have the extra cash to build this suit, and I’m not sure what I would do with it, but still, it’s a crazy idea that crossed my mind, and I wanted to share.
