Re: Bandai 1/12 Shadow trooper

Smashing job.  Still not seen these so will have to have a dig on eBay or Amazon.

 

The one thing that bugs me slightly is that the joints don't allow for full movement without the ends of them being revealed.  Can see it (only slightly it's true) on the elbow in the last picture.  It's giving me a headache with a trooper I'm building at the moment as the pose I want isn't allowed by the joints without them showing.  Pose isn't even very extreme so it's a bit vexing.

 

But this is great build!

I agree about some of the posing issues as well as the join on the back of the helmet... i have the

sand trooper that i want to build some time soon and do a different pose than the standard ones

but i also want o do something about that join on the back of the helmet as well.

 

despite the limitations of the kit, it's the only real show in town and if we weren't moaning

about the short comings of the kit then we would all be moaning abot not having the kit

in the first place. Bandai have brought the Star Wars saga back to life where Revell almost

killed it with their kits.

 

incidentally, i noticed todays date, May the 4th....May the force be with!

You are of course dead right and we're never happy are we! embarassed

 

And as it's May the 4th today I hope to actually get my finger out and get on with some building for the "Return of the Garrison" show at the end of June.  Only 2 Sandtroopers to build (and fix that seam on the helmet) and 4 to weather... Not that I'm worrying about getting it done!

Just wondering- it is the same Stormtrooper outfit with a color change or are there physical differences?

the only real differences are to do with the colour of the decals, all the rest are identical to the original storm trooper

That's odd you can't add the link.  Should just be able to paste it in.
