Ever wondered where those guys in storm trooper armor got their suits of armor from? Look no further, the Shepperton Design Studio is selling a complete Stormtrooper armor for a very reasonable price. You can purchase the battle helmet for 299 British pounds and the suit (without helmet) for 999 British pounds. Both combined sell for 1299,95 pounds. The offer seems successful because currently all items are out of stock and will be available again in October.
It is interesting to note that the design studio has been creating the original Stormtrooper armors for the Star Wars movie A New Hope, which indicates that the replicas that you can purchase in the online store are as true to the original as possible.
When you check the store right now, you will notice that the designers have created additional products that can now be purchased online. This includes Shadow Trooper armors, as well as Imperial and Rebel armors, the armor of the Dark Lord Vader, a replica of the R2 Droid, plus blasters, armour parts, and accessories.
A full armor, including the helmet, sets you back between 1000 and 1300 pounds, with armors only available for imperial troops like Stormtroopers. You can only buy helmets if you prefer the rebel faction in the Star Wars universe, which means that you somehow need to get your hands on clothing as well. If you are talented enough, you could sow the clothing yourself, or try to find another store selling those.
Since I have got follow up questions on a couple of things. The R2 Droid is available for £2500.00 from the ship. It is an accurate replica of the droid that many love. What you do need to understand though is that it does not ship with control options or even AI.
You can now also buy Stormtropper Armor Kits which are offered at a cheaper price. The difference to the ready-to-wear products as you need to put the pieces together by yourself. If you are talented enough to do so, you save about almost 250 pounds doing so. The ready-to-wear kit is now available for 1000 pounds on the site.
