Imperial Storm Trooper strikes back!

This lifesize limited-edition fibreglass replica of an Imperial Storm Trooper was cast from an original costume used in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. He came down to the Conservation lab for a little first aid.

The left hand supporting the gun had been damaged and had fallen off. A temporary sling was put on to support the right arm in the meantime.

He received some TLC and now has a clean bill of health and is ready to move to the Riverside Museum, taking up residence in the 1980s toyshop window. You just never know what you might get to work on in this job!
