A-77 Captain Fordo (Alpha-class ARC Trooper) Animated Style

This version of Captain Fordo was inspired by The Clone Wars television series, which I watche every week with my kids. Because Fordo is one of my favorite clone characters, I just couldn't resist rendering him in the animated style of the show.

Parts: Head (Captain Rex), Torso (Captain Rex), Arms (Captain Rex), Legs (Captain Rex), Blaster Pistols (Captain Rex), Blaster Rifle (Captain Rex).

Supplies: Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: Although he has not appeared in the show to date, this figure depicts Captain Fordo in the animated style of The Clone Wars television series.

This is simply a re-painted Captain Rex. There was nothing particularly tricky or difficult about it, but I'm still very happy with the way it turned out. The Jaig eyes were carefully scraped off the helmet with the blade of an X-acto knife. Then the armor was re-painted to match Fordo's armor markings. A light coat of Testors Dull-Cote was applied to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
