Carbon Troopers: Stormtrooper Armor Gets the Carbon Fiber Treatment

Leonard Carson had been toying with the idea of combining carbon fiber with stormtrooper armor for some time. He managed to convince three of his co-workers join his cause and this is the result. I have to say that these carbon troopers look quite impressive.

I definitely like this all-black look. It seems more appropriate for the Empire than white. Unfortunately, these suits weren’t cheap to fabricate. If you want an inkling, they mention that the cost would be enough to purchase a pretty nice car.

As an alternative, if you want this look, you could try and cover a standard plastic suit with some carbon fiber vinyl decals but you’d never get the finish of these awesome suits.

The armor looks so good, that Carson’s employer, San Diego Composites wants to display one of the suits in their lobby.
