Evolution of the Clone Commanders (Part I)

Okay, this next series of figures was completely inspired by a customizer by the name of JediStyle (see his work here: http://www.yakfaceforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=357&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0). He made several custom Imperial Stormtroopers that had colored markings like those seen in units of the Grand Army of the Republic toward the end of the Clone Wars. In particular, I loved his Commander Fordo in phase III armor. This got me to wondering what some of the other notable Clone Commanders would look like in Stormtrooper armor that bore markings similar to their Clone armor...

The first one I tackled was Commander Cody (CC-2224). Cody wore a visor in his phase I armor as well as both versions of his phase II armor. It was no big stretch to see him continuing this trend. Cody also used a small jetpack and often commanded airborne troops. Because of this (and it's similarity to Cody's phase II armor), I chose the Imperial Jump Trooper as the base for this figure. No significant modifications were made to the figure, but the armor was painted to closely resemble that which was previously worn by Cody.

  1. Nice work! I particularly like the weathering you did generally on the figure as well as specifically on the colored portions.
