It`s a long story , so let`s start with this art :

http://i1351.photobucket.com/albums/p790/FrostVisionStudio/do-your-part-girls-stormtrooper-starwars-star-wars-demotivational-poster-1241296962_zps6aacc413.jpg~original (http://s1351.photobucket.com/user/FrostVisionStudio/media/do-your-part-girls-stormtrooper-starwars-star-wars-demotivational-poster-1241296962_zps6aacc413.jpg.html)

My client was a fan of this art and when he finds out some company actually produce 1:6 kit based on that image , he was really excited . He contact me and ordered private commission work . He provide me with link , where I purchase this kit ( only place available really ) , after 2 weeks i receive the kit ... and i was completely speechless ... Really poor casting quality , seams everywhere , holes , bended body parts etc . It took`s me a lot hours to make this kit looks decent . Patching , sanding , curving , resculpting , adding details , making new holes , adding rods etc. It was a disaster and they charge $115.26 + shipping for this !
Here is some pictures , check out the details :

As you can see , kit was really really poorly made . Wood texture on a stand , no smooth surfaces at all , heavy blaster is far from original etc .

We love making something original and really want to add something to the paint job . Client wants red hairs and we offer him a full Stormtrooper Commander color scheme , plus some damages here and there . Here is the result :

I have seen these kits on RPF. Pretty neat. I really hope the kit creator is the one selling on that site (or a least with his approval), and that is not a recast...

Don`t know for sure , but i seriously doubt that .

Which of the two options: the kit creator is the one selling on that site and/or that is not a recast? Because outside RPF I don't quite see how someone got them for sale, unless is the original maker or someone with his approval. Otherwise it is called recast.

I doubt that this guys selling the real deal , judging by the cast quality . But , as I said , I don`t know for sure . I think only original maker can tell .

Thank you for posting. I was about to buy that kit in a few weeks and try painting it myself. I don't have any sculpting or kit building skills, and seeing the quality here - No way I will be getting it now.
You saved me some money :)))

I think it's a cool concept but it's all in the execution of the 3D version, if J. Scott Campbell drew a version of this and SS built it I'd be all over it though.

Completely agree ! My favorite penciller , hands down . Actually , you can just add stormtroopers armor to almost all of his girls from Fairy Tale Fantasies and just call it a day . :naughty
