I've always wondered what the origin of the TKs in the "Troops" fanfilm were... Does anyone here know? They don't look like AFX and seemed pretty accurate; although it's been a couple of years since I've watched it.

And OT a 'lil bit; why isn't there a better version of this available? This is the best fanfilm (and most original - so to speak) so I think it deserves a better quality version instead of the compressed garbage sourced from VHS. :unsure

it actually was available once on dvd... it was on total movie magazine issue #1's dvd that came with the magazine. the only difference was they had to change the "bad boys" theme for copyright reasons i believe.

They look like they are from a fan made sculpt. They are def not AFX/GT.

BTW cool film - I hadn't seen that before. :D

pretty sure it's all fan-sculpted stuff. If you haven't seen part two, I.M.P.S yet, check it out. More use of the same armor design including a very elaborate Biker Scout design with an oversized and exaggerated helmet.

I worked on IMPS and I can tell you that it was mostly a hodge-podge of whatever we could get our hands on.
I loaned the use of my TK, Tie pilot, and DS Gunner, and several other misc helmets and costumes.
I know all of my stuff was modified/misc. mfg. items.
I sold the TK armor a few years back on EBay and gave away all the rest of the costumes when I left CA.
IIRC, there were some 501st guys that worked on it too.

I was working on a movie when they did the Davenport location shoot and could not be there, but the TK armor was used. I did wear my Tie-Pilot outfit in an upcoming chapter that will feature the pilots inside the launch bay. I believe it will be chapter 3, If I am correct chapter 2 is mostly Snow-Troopers.

I just hope I live long enough to see the completed work. :p
