Sith Stalker not very original?
 
I noticed today while watching ROTJ that the helmet leia wears in jabb's palace is waaay to similar to the Sith stalker armour

maybe haden needs to do some homework?

The design may not be original, but technically in the altered universe, it would be Leia's helmet that was non-original.

The bounty hunter disguise that Leia has in Episode 6 is not the only outfit that the Stalker armor shares characteristics with. Looking more closely, one can see similarities to Jango/Boba Fett's armor (the T-visor), General Grievous (claw-like hands and number of lightsabers kept as trophies), Darth Vader's armor (the overall concept, plus the freaky breathing sounds that he makes), and even Count Dooku (his lightsaber has several spiked emitter guards that resemble the single guard on the Count's weapon). Given TFU was supposed to mirror and remind one of the Star Wars movies, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see that the Sith Stalker armor's design was inspired by a number of other elements of the canon. The game contains many other references to other Star Wars material (movies and EU) as well.

Nice find. I would agree they do look awefully alike.

Maybe it's an Ubese design?

Hmm... never noticed that before.

Maybe Leia is really the secret apprentice?

That is cool.

Why does it need to be completely original? It looks really cool, and in my opinion, it looks way better than Vader's suit.

Zwier Zak 07-30-2009 07:08 PM

It sucks. And my dear boy nothing is cooler than Vader's suit. ;]

Master Shake 07-30-2009 11:53 PM

I knew it reminded me of something.

It looks badass, original or not.

TriggerGod 07-31-2009 08:07 PM

If anything, Starkiller's helmet only shares the mouth area of Boushh's helmet. ;)

But, as has been stated, Starkiller's entire outfit has probably been inspired by many other sources. The Mandalorian (True Mandalorian/Death Watch/Clone Troopers kind) T-Visor, parts of Vader's armor (mainly a part of the helmet and the body), the Grevious thing, etc.

But really, when you've gone through 10+ years with some good concepts, I doubt you are going to create something that is totally original.

Vod'ika, starkiller's armor = cool, but Vader's armor = AWSOME!!!

Rinku 09-09-2009 07:32 PM

It isn't a complete knock-off..I mean there are differences (mandalorian like design) and there is a thing called "piggy backing" and since this is Lucasarts I think we all should expect some piggy backing in the Star wars EU.

Agreed, It is really cool.

Look up the character of Markus Corvinus in the movie Underworld: Evolution. Does that ring a bell? He's the Sith Stalker without armor or tattoos.
