Storm Trooper Cheap Toy – I’ll Turn it into a Model Diorama

I found this knock-off Storm Trooper toy at a Lifeline in Gympie last year. It was in a bag of Star Wars knock-off characters. They were not in great shape, but the bag of toys only cost me a few dollars.

I fixed/ repaired the arm of the Storm Trooper last week.
I have since decided I will repair it further, sand it, repaint it… and turn it into a diorama.

To do this I’ll have to re-build the shoulder joints (to turn them into ball joints), so I can pose the arms the way I want. I’ll also scratch-build a weapon for it. It will be a fun little spare-time project.

Below are some pics of the Storm Trooper toy — before and after I fixed its arm.

I have also found some inspiration videos on YouTube. I’ve included them below as well.

Off-topic: I have also included (below) a Star Wars Fan Film I watched the other day that was pretty good. Plus something else that is a little bit fun.

The new movie about ‘the first Jedi’ called ‘Dawn of the Jedi‘ looks good:
