Passing of the Torch
With the new Star Wars movie (which I loved as much as the original trilogy) and minifigures coming with it, you can expect more and more Force Awakens things around here. But don’t worry, old school Lego Stormtroopers are not completely retiring, and definitely our two sandtroopers that are still looking for those droids.
However, as you may know Stormtroopers are very popular among Lego photographers. I’m curious to what will happen in the near (and not so near) future. Will First Order stormtroopers progressively replace old school Empire Stormtroopers? Or they’re just too iconic, and will stick around?
Personally, I think that in the near future, old school stormtroopers will remain the vast majority of stormtroopers, if only because First Order stormtroopers are still quite rare and expensive. In a few years though… I’m not too sure… What I’m pretty sure, is that we’re going to have nice scenes with both more and more, and some much better than this one, I just did on a whim as I’m building the Battle on Takodana set.
