Nice work. For hot Anime chicks even I'd joint the Empire. :P  I've seen a few of these statue/figures at my local comic shop, Ive half thought about snagging a few my self. I dont think I've ever seen that particular one though. Did she come in that armor or did you add that yourself?

Everything looks great on it, but I do have a question about the helmet.  It looks... differnet than other Stomrtrooper helmets, does it not?

The Helmet is a Lego Stormtrooper Helmet. I thought it looked a little more feminine. The Base figure is Some sort of Generic Anime Character I found at Megacon. It comes wearing a thong Sports Bra And those goofy Sock things and nothing else. It is asembled from 4 diff. pieces which don't hold togeather very well.

Yowsa... looks nice.    I think this figure looks great but the... uh... enhancements on version 1.0 are rather eyecatching.  However, the pose on this one is fun.

I didn't think the lego helmets would be so close to scale.  I'll have to look closer.

Female Trooper

Here is another version of a Female Stormtrooper. This one is wearing a much more conservative Suit of Armor.
I used an Anime Figurine for the Body, A Lego Stormtrooper Helmet, and Kit Bashed the Utility Belt and Holster. She's a little Tall for a Stormtrooper about 4" But People do come in all shapes and sizes, so she looks OK in a Diorama.
LMK what you think.

Both of these last too look really good from the neck down. Maybe a bit skinny but it looks like you are going for a bit of an exagerated looks so that is fine. I'm not sure how much I like the Lego helmets though. They kinda make this girls look like they have a pin-head, I'm not sure why because the Lego heads aren't that much smaller than a 3 3/4" head. The newwest one's hands seem a little too big, the arms are pretty skinny and then she's got a set of man hands at the end of 'em.

Lego helmets.... now I know what you've been using on these female troops.  Honestly I don't like the idea of female Stormtroopers a whole lot, but that doesn't take away from your figure, if there were to be fem-troops, this is a likely look I would think.  Very good weathering on it.

Here is the Much Requested Snow Trooper Corpse. In order to Justify making this Custom I had to think up a Back Story.

This Poor Trooper was in the Troop Hold of one of Genral Veer's AT-AT Walkers during the Assault on Echo Base. During the March towards the Shield Generators a Rebel Terrorist Cut into his Walker with a Light-Saber and tossed in a Thermal Detonator into the Hold. The Trooper Scrmabled to Grab the Detonator and Toss it out before it exploded but he was not fast enough. He and the rest of his Company were incenerated by the Blast. To add insult to injury, once his Body was exposed to the Fridged Hoth Climate he was quickly flash frozen.
After the Assault the Empire Quickly Pulled out of the System to Chase down the Remaining Rebel Terrorist, leaving their fallen Comrades Behind. Soon Carnavours began to Scavenge the Battle Field. The Trooper's Body was Dragged off by a Wampa as a Gift for his Mate. So' Here he is LMk what you think.

Femtrooper 1 - Nice work, she's a hottie!  I really like that you used the Lego Stormtrooper helmet on her, it is has a more feminine look to it.  That pose is pretty good too  ;)

Femtrooper 2 - Very cool!  I like this one better than the first one, I guess it's the pose.  Again, the use of the Lego helmet works perfectly. 

Frostbite - Awesome!  This one rivals the first TIE Fighter Pilot as my favorite so far.  What boots did you use?  They don't really look like snowtrooper boots  :-\  I love the Wampa scene, very funny  :D
I think that you should "tatter" the face mask a bit more.  Maybe instead of having a section missing you could cut some thin strips (or use white thread) to make that part of the mask look shredded?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Wow, this Snowtrooper is one of your finest zombie figures I think Fritz!  Really very realistic looking and to me seems even more morbid than the others, because it seems so real.  It kind of grosses me out!   ;)

Have you thought about making one of these with an arm blown off or anything?  I would think that maybe a few of the guys might be missing a limb.  Just an idea as I'm a huge fan of your work.

BTW - the snow looks great - what did you use for it?

 :P

I agree Chewie. I would love to see some dead soldiers that are not completely whole. That is something I'm planning for my version (if I ever get around to doing it).  :-\

For the female stormie, I like the body that is used. The leg armor and the torso armor look good. The back sholderblades really bother me though. They stand out like two pieces of sculpty just stuck on there for no real reason.

This is a figure I would have skipped the wash on. I think she would look alot better with clean armor. I think it takes away from the details of the body. The lego helmet is really bothering me too. I didn't much like it on the first version either. It looks strange and kind of bootleggist. I'd suggest a bust ups or regular commtech stormtrooper helmet instead.
