Has anybody thought about buying some of the cheapo stormtroopers you can find in the under-the-counter bin for like $0.50 becaues they're so yellow that taxi cabs get jealous and tried repainting them white and adding all the black parts back where they should be with paint or a sharpie?
I'm thinking it might be a fun way to army build vintage stormtroopers without hardly any cost other than the weapons.
I've actually done that as you can see in the image below. Personally, I wasn't overly happy with the results, I couldn't find a white to best match the color of the armor and my attempts on the helmet were blah to say the least...
This is funny. I have 15 Stormies now, but 11 of them I recently got in a large lot of stuff. There were lots of army builder stuff, so they didn't focus on anything in particular in the pictures. All but one stormie was painted like the one in this picture. I spent a lot of time removing the paint and still haven't been able to get all the paint out of the mouth grill.
