new york-based designer blank william has reinterpreted the familiar features of star wars stormtroopers as a series of wild animal armor. three species — a rhino, hippopotamus and elephant — have each been sculpted with the same aesthetic qualities as the fictional film soldiers, characterized by glossy surfaces and gilded gold details. ‘the new order’ collection has been realized in two versions, white and black, each which see animals’ facial features warp and distort to suit the style of stormtroopers’ distinctive plastoid body armor. for the ‘black’ set, elephant tusks, the rhino horn and hippo ears are wrapped in a glistening golden hue; in the ‘white’ series, these same parts are coated in a cool chrome finish.

  • The Hippo one should be able to open up, because a hippo’s mouth and tusks are it’s most powerful weapon, able to snap crocs in 2. So it should open up, but be able to seal air tight shut for space or under water.

  • Beautiful work! Wonderfully peculiar and evocative objects. Great renders,too!
