For the true Star Wars fan life is but a collection of pretend set pieces, strung together in between viewings of the greatest sci-fi saga in history. Whether you're doing a Ben Kenobi with your broomstick, a Han Solo with the hand-drill or sticking a couple of giant pretzels to either side of your head while wearing your mum's white dressing gown, making a right Skywalker out of yourself is part and parcel of everyday life.
But forget about half-baked fantasies. Because now, for the first time ever, you can transform yourself into a genuine Imperial Stormtrooper. And when we say genuine we really mean it. Because almost 30 years after prop-maker Andrew Ainsworth of Shepperton Design Studios created the original iconic white outfit, you can own a ludicrously collectable 1:1 replica, including a helmet that has been made using the original 1976 movie moulds. Yes, the actual moulds! Shepperton have started hand-crafting these Stormtrooper suits for fans to wear or display at home.
I'm Luke Skywalker, I'm here to rescue you!
Making rival replica outfits seem about as convincing as Hayden Christensen's acting, these armour/helmet combos are the most accurate reproductions of the originals ever produced. And because the helmets are first generation facsimiles they feature the same idiosyncrasies as the original. If these aren't the outfits you're looking for, we don't know what are!
Banned from public transport for "pulling out his blaster"
Each spectacularly sleek get-up has been produced using tough 2mm acrylic-capped ABS to withstand all the wear and tear of 'Trooping' events. (Whatever they are). Wear this outfit to a fancy dress party and guests will run for cover for fear of you pulling out your blaster.

Whether it's sitting on display or adorning your body, this beautifully crafted Imperial clobber is guaranteed to draw gasps of envious amazement. Because let's face it, in terms of style, Imperial Stormtrooper outfits really were the Bantha's baubles. Indeed the helmet alone would give Boba Fett's entire battle-suit a run for its money. Fair play, most stormtroopers were lousy shots and some were prone to walloping their heads on blast doors, but this army of clones were cooler than a freezerful of Tauntauns.
And if you're worrying about Leia's 'aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?' line, fear not. There's enough 'give' in the armour to accommodate various body dimensions, as long as you're not a total Jabba (anything from 5' 2" to 6' 2" by adjusting the straps).
You don't need us to tell you how spectacularly collectable this magnificent attire is, but we will anyway. The Imperial Stormtrooper Helmet/Armour is a must-have accessory for any self-respecting Star Wars fan and the moment you clap eyes on it you'll be unable to resist trying it on. And taking it off. And trying it on. And taking
well you get the idea. Stock is limited so get ordering asap and make a total TK421 out of yourself. These are the outfits you're looking for!
