Stormtrooper Unpainted 4-up Hardcopy (583-022)
Showcased here is an unpainted Stormtrooper 4-up. This action oriented pose is designated by the number 583-022. The first three digits represent the Death Star Escape playset, while the last three indicate the particular character/pose. Adam enjoys referring to this pose as the "stalking pose".

Here we see a rear view of the 4-up. The included 1:1 pieces in each photo nicely convey the size difference between the 4-up and the final production scale.

The final image illustrates a number of the pieces Adam has assembled for this pre-production series. The series, as shown here, includes the unpainted 4-up, 4-up paintmaster, painted squeezing, unpainted 1:1, and painted 1:1. A seperate entry for the 4-up paintmaster may be viewed here.

4-ups certainly are a display oriented prototype stage since their large size makes them very visually appealing when present in a collection. Site visitors who frequent the Archive's Micro Collection prototype section will likely recognize this piece as one of many 4-ups Adam has contributed to the site from his collection.
