    In ANH after the Falcon was captured by the Death Star, the Empire ordered a scanning crew on board. The crew went on board and were jumped by Han and company. Then Han yelled down at two stormtroopers that he needed help. The two stormtroopers went on board and we hear gun fire. My question is that if the two stormtroopers were shot, after Han and Luke put the armor on, how come there is no visable damage to the armor? The only thing I can think of is that Han and them jumped the stormtroopers and set the weapons for stun and then shot them. And what ever happened to the scanning crew and the two stormtroopers? Did the empire do another search and find them? Or maybe they were brought to Yavin and captured by the rebels.

    The blaster fire we hear is actually the stormtroopers' blasters. The good guys knocked them out by other means. Possibly by a stun blast, or maybe Chewie just whacked them on the head.

    It's just a minor plot hole/blooper

    Easily overlooked

    One of Han's best scenes is when he steals the armor and busts into the control room and blows away the guys there, total badass

    my question is, what happened to the bodies? They couldnt have just dragged them out onto the death star, someone would have seen for sure, so the only explanation would be that they hide the corpses on the ship. So the whole trip to Yavin they're travelling with four dead bodies stowed away somewhere on the ship!

    Chewie found the bodies on the trip back to Yavin and you know how he is, always thinking with his stomach. ;)

    Other stormtroopers found the unconscious bodies of the stormtroopers inside one of the Falcon's lockers, and took them to sick bay. They were there when the Death Star exploded.

    Someone should write an EU story about this to clear up the confusion.

    All four came around and had amnesia- so they decided to form a boy band!

    Someone already did. Try reading the ANH novelization.

    It would be easier to understand Chewie or a stun blaster, but if someone has not seen it they think well who shot who? And it makes the movie even more exciting to one who has not seen it.

    I hope that the person who said that an EU story should be written about this subject to clear up the confusion was joking. A whole story, dedicated to answering this one minor question? Can you imagine how boring that would be?

    Easy, kids.

    ANY story can be exciting if written properly... especially if it includes accordions, mullets, or monkeys.

    :D

    I'd write a story where people throw ducks at baloons and nothing is the way it seems...

    Every movie is better when it has a monkey in it:

    The Wizard of Oz
    Mighty Joe Young
    Congo
    King Kong
    Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

    And many more!

    Don't forget accordions, guys.

    The only reason I liked "Big Daddy" with Adam Sandler was all of the Styx references (I wanna be a blue collar man, too), in particular the guy playing "The Best of Times" on the accordion.

    Kizakh's got a squeezebox, he wears it on his chest... :D

    Sorry to change the subject but Stormtrooper armor is pointless! We know its like cardboard up against lasers and apparently it absorbs no shock from teddy bears with rocks.

    Further more, primitive arrows penetrate the armor. There better off running around naked.

    They tried a nude army to cut costs, but it just didn't work out; wasn't as intimidating.
