New Star Wars bloopers show why stormies have it so rough in combat

Here's a hilarious "recently discovered" gag reel from the first Star Wars film (A New Hope, 1977)! The beginning has no audio, but it starts up about 50 seconds into the clip.

No wonder the stormtroopers are such terrible shots--their armor is actually dangerous to wear! No traction on footwear, utility belts flinging off without warning--not to mention the obviously terrible vision out of those huge helmets. Makes standing up seem like a challenge, let alone trying to shoot straight!

P.S. Maybe I should work up some rules for ill-fitting armor for when players need to go incognito behind enemy lines....


  1. Those stormtroopers coming through the door and trying to stand is so awesome...

  2. Those poor actors--I hope they were paid handsomely!
