how come he can and we can't?

'cuz the TK armor isn't trimmed that much to enable us to sit...it could be trimmed that much for us to sit, but then the armor will look kinda ugly with that much undersuit showing through.... there arent any other scenes with stormtroopers sitting i believe...

i can remember one of the guys who trimmed a lot of his armor so that he is more mobile in there....forgotten who though...

maybe some of the 501st can tell you how's it like in there..

Actually, the answer is very simple. Every TK CAN sit if they wanted to...it all depends on how much they love their armor. From looking at Han and Luke in armor, the armor material actually looks thin and flexible. Just look at Han's chest plate when he sits - it looks like its being bent.

They are vacuum formed...all the armor used in the original trilogy was vacuum formed. We know for a fact that the stunt TKs and TDs were pulled in ABS plastic but no one's really sure if the Hero suits (Eg. what Han and Luke were wearing) was pulled in. Alot of troopers think that its the same as the stunt suits but there's no proof. Personally from that one scene I think they were made of an extremely flexible material, probably thin HDPE or vinyl...and painted gloss white. That would explain how flexible and agile they could perform in the trash compactor scene.

The only ones I have seen sitting are Sandtroopers on the back of Dewbacks and as we all know that is computer special effects!

As said previously it all depends how much you love your armor and whether or not you want to get up again! To all TK, TX and TD out there make sure you are not alone when you try this as it could be a long time before help arrives to give you a hand to pull you to your feet again!!

You rascal!! Got the blaster before me! No keeping my Han Solo blaster a secret now!! Thought it would go well with my Tie Pilo suit but now I hope to sell that to raise funds for my TK and TD.

I can't wait to see the blaster as I here it is really detailed. He is trying to get me one too!
