Hoth Stormtrooper Cod Piece
This is an uncut cod piece for a Hoth Stormtrooper from The Empire Strikes Back. This unused piece of vacuform plastic was molded at Elstree Studios in 1979 for the Hoth Stormtrooper costumes, but the piece was never trimmed since not needed for filming in the movie.

The above image is a shot of the Hoth Stormtrooper costume that was on exhibit at the Sydney Powerhouse Museum as part of the Star Wars Magic of Myth exhibit in 2002. Note how all the details in the cod piece on the screen used Hoth Stormtrooper match the uncut piece.
