    It’s been a looooooooong time since I did my first star wars custom, so this is only my second attempt, hope you’ll like it.

    Presenting my rendition of a Magma trooper!
    Magma troopers are a specialized division of Imperial stormtroopers. They are responsible for quelling revolts and other actions on volcanic mining planets such as Mustafar.
    Magma trooper armor is specially designed to withstand extremely high temperatures, including some direct contact with volcanic magma. My version includes a highly durable power-armor so the stormtrooper will be able to carry out heavy-duty assignments in extreme and harsh conditions.

    Actually I positioned the figure on some rubber rocky surface piece from an old “moon exploration” set I hade, in front of the computer screen with the Mustafar picture on it (see the attached pic). The illumination is from a table lamp covered with red Cellophane, the collage and additional effects were done with Photoshop.
