Making its debut this week at San Diego Comic-Con at the eFX booth 3635 is a must see for all avid Star Wars fans. The most accurate Stormtrooper replica to date is coming your way this year and we’re not just talking about the helmet here, we’re talking about the whole kit and caboodle, a fully armored Stormtrooper! The suit will be made available including the body suit and neck seal, cast directly from a uniform used in “A New Hope.”
So you’re probably thinking that you’ve seen a ton of Stormtrooper costumes already, especially at Comic-Con, but this is the very first time the original costume was used to create prop replicas. The suit used for casting is one of only two Stormtrooper costumes known to have been sent to the U.S. during production of the original Star Wars. From head to toe, this is the most stunning and most accurate Stormtrooper replica ever created.
Pre-orders will be accepted in the fall and will run you about $2,000. Dollars, not Republic Credits.
