Stormtroopers 365

Web Urbanist brings me some of the coolest things.  Sometimes it's all about underwater archaeology sites that provide inspiration for stories.  Sometimes it's creepy and lovely photographs of abandoned places.  Recently, it was Imperial Stormtroopers.  I like that they don't discriminate.

Turns out, the hilarious photos of Stormtrooper toys posed in funny settings was part of a project called Stormtroopers 365 by a guy named Stefan.  The project stars TK455 and TK479, Stormtroopers in the Galactic Empire Army.  The project went from April 2009 to April 2010.  You can find little miniseries within the set, two of my favorites are the "D'oh!" and "Seven Deadly Sins" series.

In case you are curious, the Troopers are basic 12cm ones from Hasbro. They have many articulations and are highly posable (as you can see in the photos).  Here are a few of my favorites:

 

  
TK479: "By the Force, what are you up to?!"

TK455: "I'm painting M&M's upon request of our all-mighty Emperor Palpatine."
TK479: "If they're for Palpatine, why aren't you painting them black?"
TK455: "He told he's getting bored of the dark side of the M&M's."






View the entire, glorious set here.  You can also buy prints of these funny set-ups!
