This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Han could sit in one and since they can kneel and crouch I assume the suits are articulate enough to allow sitting. Possibly not very comfortable sitting depending on how that back piece is connected.

For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

For the curious: Apparently, in person, I sound exactly like the Youtube Character The Nostalgia Critic.   I have no words.

In terms of being real-world practical armor, soldiers would need to be able to sit in it, crawl, lie down and even sleep in it.

But a quick search turns up evidence that screen-accurate Trooper costumes are indeed difficult to sit down in:

Note also that Scout Trooper armor omits the butt plate so they can sit on their bikes.

I think the bigger problem is the joints in the legs. Whomever made those pieces apparently did not think about the bend point so the upper and lower pieces pinch at the back the more you bend at the knee.

There are also references to the armor pinching where the upper leg meets the buttplate and crotch. Yikes!

I've let my Disney + lapse now that Mando is over, gotta save up for a computer upgrade.

In related news, ILM announces that they have three new StageCraft soundstages coming, in addition to the one in California that The Mandalorian was filmed on.

One will be at the same studio in California, one will be at Pinewood Studios in London, and one will be at Fox Studios in Australia, and will be used to film Thor: Love and Thunder.
