A step by step guide to the creation of the original Stormtrooper by prop maker Andrew Ainsworth. In 1976 at Shepperton Design Studios Ainsworth created the original Stormtrooper helmets and armor for the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope.
More recently, he had a 5 year battle with Lucasfilm Ltd. over who has the right to sell Stormtrooper helmets. Lucasfilm tried to stop him, saying the helmets were protected by copyright laws. The UK supreme court ruled in favor of Ainsworth.
