Thanks for the feedback guys!
CHEWIE - thanks for the compliments! In response to your question, the shoulder pads and chest armor are made from cut-up fake credit cards. I really need to get some styrene but I've accumulated a stack of fake credit cards about 2 inchs high so I like using them (free=good)
The paint has chipped a bit more than I had anticipated at the joints and on their hands, but it's not really that noticeable yet. I sprayed them dull-cote so the paint is holding up pretty well overall, and the chipped parts are hard to see so far.
What do you recommend I do to the chest-plate on the Comm. Officer? I think it looks more "realistic" in person, but I know what you mean about how it looks photoshopped on. Any suggestions?
Phruby - I'm glad you like the mechanical hand, I did it right before I primed the figure
