    Clone Trooper to Storm Trooper

    One thing that always bugged me about the prequel clones were the elbow armor. It just never seemed right to me. I know that it should make sense to protect your elbows, but....it just doesn't do it for me.

    So I'm thinking next time I build a clone, it will be elbow less.

    Maybe an evolution to a stormtrooper.

    here is a photoshop interpretation.

    The elbows are, oddly enough, one of the main draws to the Clone Wars style armor for me. I've always thought the clone elbows and knees were goofy looking (the knees more than the elbows).

    Having the elbow attached to the forearm makes it so much easier to wear.

    Yep - that's more of the reason I'm doing this. I just feel clumsy with it.

    Plus it doestn help that I'm short and that I have shorter arms.

    All of those part just look to close to each other.

    The elbows and knees are the biggest challenge to keep straight. If they are not in-line with the other parts, the costume looks "off." It doesn't help that everyone who bumps into you, hits you on the elbow, or grabs it.

    I like the look of them, and it is an integral part of the design. I can't imagine Turo going Non-Cannon on us.

    I love the elbows. An elbowless clone would drive me nuts. I have short arms like Turo but the elbows have never been a problem for me.

    I would feel funny not wearing elbows with my clone armor. On the same note, imagine Boba or Jango with elbow armor on. Hmmm....

    You said it brother

    Turo, you just don't like wearing them and are making an excuse to lose them from the suit is all


    I'm one of those that like them, and thought the ST's looked like they're missing something too Hey? Maybe they evolved and had genetically enhanced protective bones in their elbows later down the line? Because they didn't like wearing them either ... someone had to do something about it right? Hm, someone like turo stepped up and said "Hey! In the next generation, lets genetically fortify those elbows and lose the armor, those little plates are getting too many of us killed out there because we can't move !!!! "
