    Modified Jakks Stormtroopers.. design a helmet vinyl

    That's exactly what I did. I got a luke headed stormtrooper because they are cheaper, got the vinyl helmet and have a better looking trooper for the same overall price, if not a little cheaper! CM

    Modified Jakks Stormtroopers.. design a helmet vinyl

    I bought a couple of 31 Inch Jakks Stormtroopers and like them! On one, I modified the helmet where it attaches to make it sit better, also just taped over the bad blue stripes on the side. The other trooper has a "Design a helmet vinyl helmet" that I got for 10 bucks from Walmart. It fits the...

    My Stormtrooper Helmet Collection / Comparison

    Yes I have issues apparently.... LOL Here is my long time in the making trooper collection. I have assembled/painted all of these myself except for the Gino/CRProps helmet. The TMG ROTJ is yet to be completed. The collection includes (not in order really): SFS...

    My latest Stormtrooper bucket project UPDATED PICS!

    Re: My latest Trooper bucket project Well, the weather is better so I finally finished it! Here are some pics of my fiberglass "SFS" and one next to my "MOT TE" helmet I also finished! The vocoder's need more work but I'm basically happy with these! C

    Stormtrooper Helmets From Makerofthings

    I would bondo the areas that need it (rear traps and cap) plus I would fill in the tear areas (under the eyes, why did you cut that out?) and fill in the tube stripes, these are just decals). I would spot prime the bondo areas until you get those areas looking smooth. Then I would prime the...

    Stormtrooper Helmets From Makerofthings

    I bought one probably 3 years ago and finally got it finished. It had a bumpy cap which I didn't like. I did very minimal bondo to the cap and I just primed it and wet sanded with 400 hundred between each coat. I used a high build spray can primer and probably did 5 coats. It came out smooth...

    My latest Stormtrooper bucket project UPDATED PICS!

    Re: My latest Trooper bucket project Some new progress! I deepened the eye depth on my resin SFS and also on a "slushcast"?? SFS helmet. I personally think they look better that way... I am also removing some of the bumps from the Meatsock styrene on the right. I don't mind the bumpy look...

    Stormtrooper helmet for your 4 inch figures!! PICS!!!

    Hope this is the right place to post this.. Ok, If I wasn't sure if I was a nerd well I know I am now!!! I bought a couple of gentle giant bust ups of a stormtrooper and saw that the helmet (which I believe is a miniature of the scanned SFS helmet) would probably fit my 4 inch figure! So with...

    Stormtrooper Trinity

    Notice how the eye sockets on the SFS fiberglass are deeper than the others. It gives it a more realistic look to me! Almost all of the ABS/Styrene etc helmets have shallow eye sockets. If you could build up the eyesockets for more depth on those style helmets I think they would look just that...

    Am I the only one that thinks Return of the Jedi is a turkey?

    ANH and ESB are the only ones I can actually still watch.....over and over mind you!! Maybe someone can edit ROTJ down to only the good parts and we can enjoy that 30 minute movie instead!!! Any one capable of this......!!???? :lol
