Ok bear with me... Everyone knows that the Republic clones became stormtroopers or died disobeying Order 66. So what happened to all their types of armor and equipment? There's practically nothing about it, I would think there would be a bounty hunter running around in some collected armor or the rebels would wear it as some throwback.

I was just wondering. Maybe we'll see something about it in the Tv show when it comes out.

I know its a stupid question but why not.

Maybe it was recycled to make the newer versions. I can see a poster with one of the early clones putting his damaged armor in to a recycling droid and saying, with a thumbs up, "I'm a clone, and I recycle!"

I always wanted to know if all the Stormtroopers are clones or if they started using recruits cause it's a good while between the OT and Revenge of the Sith.

Well I know that the Stormtroopers are apparently the elite force. There is a regular Imperial army, their uniforms are the ones the AT-ST drivers wear in Jedi. They are made up of recruits.

As for the clones becoming stormtroopers I don't know if this is officially canon but in Battlefront II the story explains that Kamino cloning continued for awhile and the stormtroopers were still clones. A revolt happened and the clones started fighting against the Empire. Vader shut it down. After that all new Stormtroopers were regular recruits.

The idea was there are multiple donors to the clones. Fett being the Kamino clones at the beginning. There were others later as donors. But by the time new hope rolls around the idea of Kamino Fett clones being around would be kind of a stretch.

I think the phase one clone armor was a lot a like as the ANH armor is to the stormtroopers. Then in the ROTS and ROTJ they get more specialist armor sets as time goes on. Besides the Jedi generals had all their forces with different paint and such. Stormtroopers only followed one, Vader.

Not sure but watching the Animated Clone Series the clone armor is starting to take on more of a stormtrooper look at times.

the armor was most likely unusable, you have to realize that every set or armor was mad special for every clone, to fit them and for best maneuverability and what not, so therefore it was made specifically for clones, and storm troopers arent necessarily clones.

I saw Lucas say somewhere that the Stormtroopers were clones. That's why he had Jango bump his head getting into his ship. That was supposed to go along with the trooper who bumps his head in ANH. Stupid, but that's what he said.

As far as the armor is concerned, it got phased out, and retired. Did some of it make it through into private hands? I could see that happening. However much of it was probably either demilled, or used for training... Same as with what happens to gear today in the military that gets phased out.

There is some old article from the '80s that tell that the Stormtroopers are clones.
In the Thrawn trilogy, the cloning facilities have been shut down so the remnant of the Empire is using conscripts.
In The Force Unleashed, there are troopers seen in armour that is like a in-between of ROTS Clonetrooper and ANH Stormtrooper armour.

Officially he's said that some are clones, but the cloning had new templates added. So mixed in with the kick*ss Jango clones you have all kinds of people stuck in there for political reasons. So you have a lot of Gomer Pyles in there that can't hit the side of a barn because their uncle was a senator. :lol

I'm guessing the elite units are still Jango clones. How in the hell the Emperor's best legion on Endor was Jango clones, I assume, I'll never know. Apparently some DNA from the local equivalent to the backwoods inbred hillbilly got chucked in that batch.

As for armor, I seem to recall a newer comic, maybe the Empire or Rebellion ones, that showed a Rebel wearing clonetrooper armor or parts of it.

Wasn't one of the bounty hunters in Empire Strikes Back wearing pieces of armor? He must have gotten it at the military surplus.

And how about all those battle droids? Someone mechanical could put pieces together and have a bunch of servants for himself. If you could stand the stupid voice.

Or, when I read the comments from guys who 'troop' in 'armor' they say how heavy it is after a few hours. Think of wearing it for real, all day every day.
Maybe the Empire only had a few sets of real armor. Most Clones and Stormtroopers wore fake vacuformed plastic. So nobody wanted it second hand.

I'd say they are going to ride on the The Old Republic train for a bit, plus the Kinect Star Wars game that is still slated.

Recycled armor? That makes sense then why blasts go right through it.
