Originalstormtrooper.com is the website for Shepperton Design Studios – and the only website where you can purchase genuine Stormtrooper helmets and armour, created by the original maker Andrew Ainsworth from the original helmet moulds that were used in Star Wars: A New Hope.

The company use the legacy moulds from the first production to maintain an incredible level of accuracy in their products, using the same materials and techniques used in 1976 to make today’s replica.

The Original Stormtrooper brand has remained consistently popular since the first film trilogy broke box office records in the 1970s – and has continued to be boosted by the new Star Wars cinematic universe from Disney.

Now, the Twickenham-based studio has just added several new licensees to continue to develop its offering of branded products, including cycle apparel firm Milltag.

“Milltag is thrilled to have worked with Andrew and the team at Shepperton Design Studios to create two new OS jerseys – Shadow and Garrison, the first in an ongoing collaboration,” the clothing company states.

Other recent Stormtrooper licensing includes products from sock designer Roy Lowe, children’s apparel firm Blues Clothing – and Kimm and Miller for food gifting.

“We’ve seen astonishing success with the Shepperton Design Studios Original Stormtrooper products, consumers have really taken to the fun, self-deprecating, oddball British humour,” says Adam Bass of licensing agency Golden Goose.

“We have a new wave of products in the pipeline and we’re especially excited about the soon-to-launch Original Stormtrooper cheeseboard from Thumbs Up UK” added Account Director, Martin Oestreicher.
