And I thought I was Geek!


Recommended Posts

I stumbled across this tuff while I was searching for some images for an avater. Aparently there was a march of Imperials through Cologn at some point. I think (and hope) it was a promotional stunt for a German pay-tv channel, who was airing all of the original movies on TV. Most of the costumes are pretty good looking, though there is one blue-skinned imposter amidst the white armor. No, it's not me.

There seems to be a jedi in the right hand corner of this pic, but I'm not sure why the Imperials are tolerating him. Some of the stormtroopers are a little tall, and I think that the scout trooper on the left is too tall as well. I peronally llike the snowtrooper in the front.

You can clearly see the Thrawn imposter here. I'm not impressed with his costume. Very unprofessional :wink: . I think I see a royal guard in the right of the picture, though I don't see him in any of the others.

They seemed to have a pretty good mix of troopers in thier group. I think the blasters they are holding are a little small, not the E-11s that for sure, but they are most impressive. Well, the officer in the front isn't. He's a general, but wearing a TIE pilot's uniform. *Tsk Tsk*.

 

I think the most impressive thing of all is the 4 meter AT-AT in the background. If any of you were there, let me know if or when htis is on again. I need to kick my geekieness up a notch or two! :D

 

Sorry about the imagy heavyness, but you just had to see it. There is more explainations about it, and a few more pics here:

History is on the move, Captain. Those who cannot keep up with it will be left behind, to watch from a distance. And those who stand in our way will not watch at all.

Wow, quite a cool find there, GAT. I must say I love Star Wars and everything about it, but I would never ever dress up and parde around. However, it is an amusing thing to see. :wink:

 

Good Find,

I think getting dressed up like that would be quite fun. I say we all get dressed up as rebels and stormtroopers and play a soccer match. :D

I would want to be one of the stormtroopers, becuase I wouldn't want any one to see my face :D . We'll have to find a Death Star Soccer ball first Mad :wink:

I agree with AA here, I don't think I'll ever parade around in a Star Wars costume as it seems to stupid. Just as silly as the Trekkies marching with Vulcan ears, or the sick Frodo-dressed folks that plagued the Premiere of Return of the King.

I advantage with imperial marches is that other people can't see your face which is a kind of advantage. And if the public had to see my face I'd prefer being dressed as an imperial officer than as Spock. :?

I could(alrighty would) never dress up like that, unless of course it was Halloween which would cussion the Nerd Factor.
Don't argue with an idiot, you'll just be brought to his level and be beaten by experience.

I think I'd be too embarassed to wear that type of thing even at a convention. As if the fact that you're at a Star Wars convention surrounded by people who live, eat, and breath it, you have to dress up as a character from the movie only to be picked apart by them. No thanks!

I only have one thing to say. Those stormtrooper uniforms are uncomfterable as hell.
I once knew a great man. Nothing got to him, and he always smiled. May he forever rest in peace, knowing fully well that his freinds shall remember him.

Looks to me like the plastic-pantie part of it would be very uncomfortable, and I'd imagine the helmet doesn't provide very good vision.

Special Air Service, the british special forces. The best in the world, or so I think. They're simialr to the American SEAL Team Six, German GSG-9, and the Canadian JTF 2(rated vary closely with the SAS I might add). The Ausies also have an SAS, which makes it very confusing as to which you are talking about.

I'm not sure. The novels make it sound like Stormtroopers have a video feed in their helmets, so they don't look through the "eye" sockets, but see through moniters in the helmets. I think the elongated visor would make for better sight lines though. Pluss it reduces the weight of the helmet.

I doubt they would have a video feed. Each helmet only has a very small power generator which is just sufficient to make the comlink work.

If you read Survivor's Quest, Fel's stormtroopers have enhanced vision, breathing, hearing, etc. I know they were elite troops, but they were wearing regular stormtrooper armor.
