He's still a little short for a stormtrooper.

Er... not to quibble, but that's a GAR Trooper, and not a stormtrooper (yet...).

Other than that cool picture :)

Grand Army of the Republic (he is a Clone Trooper the helmet armor is the difference)

The Supreme Chancellor was granted emergency powers, and as his first act, he activated the clone troopers as the Grand Army of the Republic.

I did not even look closely at the pic until after GS pointed out the error.

You have to admit GS, sometimes the clone troopers do look a lot like the later stormtroopers.
This is especially so when the clone does not have any identifying colour strips on the armor.

Eh, not to a dedicated SW Geek, :D
A clone and a Stormie will always look different to me, (even when they are morphing from Clone to Storm, and the armor and helmets have elements of both a Clone and a Storm, it's still not a Stormtrooper till you get that classic black and white, with the Stormie helmet.

The first thing i saw was Clone Trooper, Not Stormie.

It goes Black an white with pure Clone helmet at the start of the Clone Wars, then colors and mixed helmets (with Clone and Storm bits mixed into different helmet types some more Storm, some more clone as the war progress) to at the end it gets the most Stormie but with some colors untill the Empire is formed and they go full on Stormie.

I have to admit that my first thought was, "But that is a clone trooper, not a storm trooper." Sigh, I guess that puts me in the SW geek side. I did a quick poll around the office, 90% of respondents thought it was a stormtrooper. I just don't see it. :)

As always, I'm in the SW geek camp, but more movie than EU. That means I thought "Clone trooper" and not "GAR trooper."

In fact, I'm a meta-fan, which means instead of an in-universe explanation ("That's the outfit designed for the Republic Army, after Palpatine was granted emergency powers") I had a real-world explanation ("That outfit incorporates design elements from Boba Fett's helmet, which has always been extremely popular with fans, which is probably why it was selected; like many other aspects of E2, Lucas offered the fan community a nod of acknowledgement, probably in response to the sense that E1 did not meet fan demand to a great enough degree.")

OK, SW geeks -- did anyone get the line reference from my original post in this thread?
