'STAR WARS' AT 40: THE NEW BOOGEYMEN!
Making an impact right from the start, the evil Darth Vader and his white-clad terror minions, the Imperial Stormtroopers, pose for an unusual publicity photo that was seemingly only ever used once, for the STAR WARS poster magazine series of 1977/78. If anyone knows more about this shoot, whether it was shot in the UK or US for the poster magazine itself rather than by the then STAR WARS Corporation, and who was in the Vader suit, please get in touch...
The iconic Stormtroopers in all their superb evolving variations across screen and media, both Imperial and First Order, as well as the Clone Troopers that Prequel-originated them, are the showcase of a lavish and informative new book, out now in the UK from HARPER DESIGN: Stormtroopers: Beyond the Armour. Written by Ryder Wyndham and Adam Bray (with a fun foreword from new era STAR WARS rising star John Boyega), this nostalgic and packed tome makes for a superb Christmas present, and another worthy entry into the Lucasfilm Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi overall book release banner during the saga's Fortieth Anniversary.
