Hey Star Wars Collectors,
Today I received an email about a brand new 1/3 scale Original Imperial Stormtrooper that is being made by a company called Pure Arts. I really like the look of it, even if it does come with a pretty hefty price tag! It looks amazingly accurate to me and standing 63 cm tall I think it would look awesome in any Star Wars collection room.
Here’s the press release for more info and some images of what this great statue looks like.
“For the first time, PureArts is collaborating with talented artist and prop maker, Andrew Ainsworth, from Shepperton Design Studio on a brand new art project. Andrew Ainsworth is the maker of the Original Stormtroopers, the iconic characters for the very first Star Wars movie, A New Hope in 1976.
The making-of this artwork was challenging and demanded the mastering of high-sculpting and painting techniques to make it as similar as possible to the original artwork. Using the model of the actual character, our team worked hard to create a 1/3 scale version of the Original Stormtrooper, reproducing the original designs, appearance, and color of the screen-used helmets.
We are committed to reproduce every flaw and imperfection of the Original Stormtrooper to capture the most accurate replica possible.
Standing at 63 cm tall, the white Original Stormtrooper is the perfect piece of movie history and is also signed on the base by the artist himself, Andrew Ainsworth.
