Back in 2007 (a great year for lego Star Wars in my opinion) Lego released some ads to promote the first wave of sets, which included the first ever battle packs. However, they had to put the Clone Trooper battle pack in an ad featuring OT sets, considering the Droid one was done in a different ad. To get around the difference in the eras, Lego decided in the ad to give the stormtroopers clone markings and have them ride the speeds. For a few seconds at the start you can see a Imperial Shocktrooper leading the charge: Years later EA feature shocktoopers in their Star Wars Battlefront game, and lego makes them as figures!: It's a pretty crazy coincidence that amuses me greatly, i had to share it! Here is an image of the troopers using the speeder:
sparkart posted a topic in Watto's JunkyardThis playset is a kind of alternate universe foil to LEGO set 7668 Star Wars Rebel Scout Speeder. The Rebels have little chance of success against three Imperial Shocktroopers and a Supercommando in an armed speeder! The Star Wars Imperial Shocktrooper Speeder by SPARKART!, on Flickr. If you appreciate Dark Horse Comics' The Star Wars, you understand the impetus to create this slightly askew rendition of the familiar Star Wars Stormtroopers. The Shocktrooper minifigures in this set are inspired by concept artist Ralph McQuarrie's early drawings for George Lucas's Star Wars, in particular, this illustration. The Supercommando with the brick-built rocketpack is inspired by the artwork that evolved into Boba Fett. I wanted the rocketpack to resemble the real-life Bell Rocket Belt that would've been familiar to the concept artists in the 1970s, when the nascent Star Wars story and movie was taking shape.
