Nope ( ;) ) didn't get one of the most classic lines from ANH where a trooper holds up a washer and makes a statement about droids....

Hee hee -- well, you have to hear it in your head the way I hear it in my head, complete with the click and whirr noises. ("chhk - look, sir.. - chhkkk -- toys!")

Without those, I don't know, maybe you could miss 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?

ACTUALLY, if any of you read the TESB novelization, where they give a description of Boba Fett for the first time (I think it was in TESB), it is mentioned that he was wearing Clone Wars trooper armor - modified. And, if you remember from AOTC, Jango was the source for the clones' DNA, and apparently got the armor as partial payment from the Kaminoans.

See, guys? It's all very logical.

Live long, and thanks for all the fish!

Cool picture, like it.

First as i saw the picture i also thought clone trooper. They are simple to identify,
even for me as i'm no SW geek.

..but i'm a WWII geek and to seperate between WWII Uniform types is especially
more difficult than this one.

I have to admit, seeing the Falcon in that landing bay with all those troopers around it makes me... all warm and fuzzy inside.

If I were big into sci-fi RPGs, this would definitely be the way to go.

You guys never cut me a break on anything! Jeez. Okay...it's a Clonetrooper or a GAR Trooper. I just was trying to link the giant guy and the minis. See...kinda fun....get it.

Anyway...I have learned my lesson. Mess not with SW nerds!

He's still a little short for a stormtrooper.
