    The one he saw didn't have the Blast Shield attatched but actually off of the helmet and next to it. I assumed it may have just slid in place.
    You might be right about this...I noticed a long time ago that the blast shields sit higher or lower on different helmets. They don't all seem to be secured in the same exact spot, so they might not be attached to the helmet at all

    Yeah. Sorry I don't have any solid info on it!

    My thoughts? As a maker? It would be a real pain to secure the piece to the metal helmet. The ribbed padding of the cover should provide a tight enough squeeze fit to hold it in place. Quick, easy, and cheap. On a film? Those are the golden words.

    Just my two cents.

    sweet the 1st print sat pretty good with out the padding, So I think it will be snug with the padding.

    What color does everyone think the blast shield is? Green, dark gray, black?
    It kind of looks dark gray or black to me but a lot of the folks at the Rebel Legion think it's green.

    Most photos look black or dark green (probably reflections from green screen of foliage) but the Lego mini fig shows a dark metallic grey. (pix posted earlier in this thread)
    Same for the Endor style.

    I orriginally thought dark green, after looking at all the reference pics and the most recent ones from the back, I think its similar to the darker metal colour on your mando helmet with a very dark grey over top to dull it down. I would do the same as what I did with the torch paint in a dark metalic colour then use some latex or mayo to mark out some scratches then spray (if you have an airbrush) a black/dark grey and maybe wash a little black, green and brown for spots of different wearing. then peel off the latex or mayo and you have your brighter scratches, then give it a controlled light drybrush to make a few edges look worn.
    The pic with the explosion behind you can see the black back section and the grey with out the green tint.

    i thought they were dark green until the topps trading card came out, now it looks black. im going to have to wait for clear pictures to make a better guess. i wonder if there are different colored shields through out the film?

    I feel like I'm seeing either a very dark metallic grey, or a dark gun blue. I'm leaning towards the blue, and I don't really see the green personally.


    As for the blue, what I see is basically this color but with a darker wash and weathering, possibly metallic.

    Furthermore, it appears to match pretty closely to the blue outfit seen here. Here is the original and with some touch up..

    Oh Man, you gus get me so excited, great posts! Some shots its really shinny and others its quite matt, might go satin lol

    My wife just rolls her eyes while Im jumping up and down, laughing and doing general excited gestures while I read the forums. Just finsihed 6/8 prints for next version, let the gluing commence. a few CA drops to set it and 5min epoxie to fix in place, now its set I will let it cure with some rubber bands just to keep a little presure.

    I think MC Hammer and crew here seem to have silver donuts.



    I've been avoiding spoilers like the plague but it looks like we might see different factions join the Rebellion and bring certain styles of armor with them.

    Come to think of it the toy helmet above looks to be a pretty close match even though its the donut.

    legend @Toa Quarax.also thanks for the high res shots of the shoretroopers on facebook too

    The helmet looks like a black or super dark grey. just looked at the lego figure I picked up, it has the smallest metalic specs. fairly sure its metalic going by that. I think I will go for a super dark grey metalic for Mk2

    I painted mine Matt black over dark silver , I'm leaving it that way until after the movie premiere . I suspect they will be dark green ...I.e. Camouflage green , but for now black it is .

    That's a decent shot of the Hoth style shoulder patch. I wish I could find a graphic to have some embroidered in time for the movie.

    They don't look stitched. But I don't know anyone with a screen printing setup.
