We just got an event request to do a children's hospital third week in October. I never wanted to spend the money on trading cards but the price came way down and the kids love them. I need some background pics for the front and back of the card. I know I've seen a better pic of this stormtrooper in the carbon freeze chamber. I'm looking for the one of this TK with a wider shot that shows the chamber. I coming up empty on my search.
I know I've been to some great sites that have source photos. I just can't seem to find them. I'm planning on having the front of the card use the red orange of Bespin and then maybe blue on the back with my emperor's throne room pic in my sig. I've only got a day or two to get this in to get it back in time for the hospital troop.
Well I can tell you one thing... it's not a screen grab. Must have been a pic taken on the set. I was gonna get you an HD screen grab but alas, tis not in the movie. The only time you see a trooper with his gun even close to that position whilst in the carbon freeze chamber, he is on the right side of the screen, facing to the left. Leia is on the left side of the screen facing forward. The trooper's gun is pointed at her head. It's much closer up and cuts off the top of the trooper's head and lower chest. There are some other frames that show a trooper facing forward but the gun is in a totally different position.
Rogue Five: Hi Bentley! Where y'all been?

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
