Parts: Head (XD Elite Force U.S. Marine), Body (Saga Imperial Officer), Helmet (Saga Death Star Trooper), Load Bearing Equipment (25th Anniversary Snake-Eyes), E-11 Blaster Rifle (Saga Imperial Officer), Blaster Pistol (PotF2 Grand Moff Tarkin).
Supplies: X-acto knife, paintbrushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.
Reference: I used a couple of different illustrations from the Star Wars: Empire comic series.
I removed the old head and replaced it with the XD head. In order to keep the articulation, I cut the old head off, leaving part of the old post in place. I then super glued the new head to the original post. I added the load bearing equipment and then used the X-acto knife to cut off the hand grenade and to trim a bit of the holster away. That allowed the blaster pistol to fit snugly in a cross-draw manner. I have been considering re-painting his fatigues to match those of the recent Imperial Engineer. I may eventually do so, but for the moment, he is complete!
