PostSubject: A little short to be a Stormtrooper   Tue Jan 04, 2011 2:31 am

"Ar'nt you a little short to be a Stormtrooper" that line drives me round the bend.I am a little shy of 5'8" tall and know for a fact i am not a little short.Myself and some hight challenging troopers met up with some ANH originals last year.

The guy on the far right said it was strange to see Stormtroopers with gloves on [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He then asked the one sitting next to him,"Did we ware gloves " yes hes mate stated.One of the guys also acked if the chest plate choked us as hes was hell.Now we know the way the originals were strapped,this is very common.I know with my TM 1mm the chest chokes the hell out of me.A small price to pay in my book.

I remember that, in the end they checked on the pics in front of them before they were sure about the gloves [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
When we first approached them Pete and I looked at eachother and didn't need to say anything as we both knew what the other was thinking, VINDICATION!!!!!!!

Another trooper who doesn't quite register 5'8'' here. No problems wearing armour TM; I do trim a good deal of material from the neck though.

SWEET I had to go with AM for the price for my first suit and have had to do alot of trimming and mods to wear it but I am 5'9" and am stoked to hear the accurate suits will fit me too.

It's great to know that I'm about as tall as the original actors are!

The last couple of times I've heard this comment I've done the "boring" thing and told them something like "No, I'm actually just about the right size for this. The original actors were around my height."

It shuts them up pretty quick! Smile

A couple girls have said this to me. I'm 6 feet tall. And I usually say "you can be my princess leia anytime" and they just smile.

I'm 6ft at 88 kilos. Not your perfect skinny 70's trooper, but still pulling off the look I guess.
