Title: Bomb Squad Troopers
Post by: ARC_Commander_Colt on April 06, 2011, 02:27:34 PM
So I was on Wookieepedia, and I read that according to Filoni, the Bomb Squad troopers from the Naboo episodes were going to have unique armor, rather than just be orange clones. But time constraints caused them to use existing models. What do you think the "unique" armor would've looked like. Probably thick, like Commando armor, because they're suppposed to disable bombs and all.

My guess is that, judging by the way they take some inspiration from real-life designs, it would have looked something like a cross between the Katarn-class commando armor and the big suits worn by real-life bomb disposal experts.

I thought that. With black colours and red livery. Dunno why... just what I think.

I always imagined them as looking like Clone blaze troopers.

Hmmm... now that you mention it, that's a very good image for them. Just with a little bit (Just a little, tiny, whatever) less armour. Maybe its cause I hate it when they all look the same. Stupid Kaminoans.

I'd think that the size of the trooper could be similar to the Blaze Troopers...but I think they'd need to scale the armor back on the arms and hands in order to let the trooper have his full range of motion. It's important not to be clumsy when defusing bombs...

I agree,
 the armor do not look well protected in case the bomb go off.
Just a Phase I clone trooper armor with orange markings LAME!
