    Meeting the Supertrooper

    I had the great pleasure of meeting Alan Harris today. For those that don't know, Alan is the handsome bloke in the Supertrooper Test fitting photo shoot.

    He was telling me that at that test fitting the Flame thrower on the left gauntlet was a working model, and they even fired that thing up, Wow! Fueled with gas from the jetpack, which I guess confirms the gas connector greeblie 100%. He was also telling me that as he understood it the character was intended to be a good guy at that time, 4 months before filming ESB started. Interesting. Great story I thought I would share.

    There is a pic of the test fitting where you can see the flamethrower ON. I wish I could meet Harris.

    Very cool!! Of course, Mr. Harris played the role of Bossk in ESB. So that's double the bounty hunter coolness.

    Yeah, more famous for his Bossk role, and very cool that is. He was also a Bespin guard pushing the HIC for Boba and of course a stormtrooper. He signed our first chest pull from the TK project I am working on, which will be cool displayed at our studio. I should add that he was a really nice guy to meet and talk to, very interesting stuff, if anyone gets the chance at a con then you won't be disappointed.
