You could just leave this one as is, and stand Yoda over him with a smoking lightsaber.

Usually I don't take a figure completely apart to repaint it, but I still learn new methods all the time through trial and error.

That looks like it's going to be an awesome Gree - I can't wait to see the end product!

I might finish it next weekend because of school and other things. I wish it was summer so I have time to work on my customs.

 I hear ya. School's a bummer for custom time. Since school started I haven't done much customs nor do I get any ideas for customs since you gotta concentrate on them grades.

Work gets in the way a lot on customizing too... and busy weekends really cut into my customizing time.

Here's Commander Shopao, my own creation.



Backstory:CC 1160, also known as Commander Shopao was trained by ARC
Alpha along with Gree, Cody, and the other commanders. There he befriended C. Gorb, Jedisearch,Corp. Sureshot and moany others. Shopao's specialty was the sky. He and his
       squad were called "helljumpers" because they jump from gunships on
daring missions.Their job was to deploy to areas on the the battlefield when troops
couldn't get their on ground. During the attack on Coruscant, Shopao was under the
command of General Tiin. On that mission, Shopao and his squad jumped down to Republica
500 and rescue as many senators and politicians as possible. Shopao got his name when he destroyed a TF cruiser by throwing a sandwich called shoapo into the reactor core. (Nah, just
joking 'bout that part, but it would be cool though). Shopao was killed while trying to takedown
a Jedistarfighter from the outside when it crashed. He died honorably while Executing Order 66.
Shopao's gear consists of a breather on his chest that also has a holoprojector and also gives him data on the climate, atmospheric conditions, density, and other things. He has a wrist gauntlet on his left arm that consists of a small screen,communicator, Kamino Kyber darts, and a mini fusion cutter.
His weapon of choice are the ARC rifles and the Republic Commando DC-17m rifle.


Sorry, the text got kinda misplaced. Anyways LMK what you think. Also should I switch the Saga Clone pilot breather to an ROTS Clone pilot breather? I also plan on weathering him.

Very cool design.  I love the backstory!  ;)

I think you should add a jet-pack of some kind to give some more credence to the sky-jumper aspect of his bio.  I think you should also add some sort of sidearm holster to his hip or ankle, just 'cuz it's cool  ;)
 The armor designs are well done - what color is that (it looks gray)?
I really like the Saga Clone Pilot breather, the smaller size works better. 
The pics are a bit blurry so It's a little hard to see what's on his left arm  :-\

I really like this guy, nice job!  8)
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Very nice job! I like your paint job and agree the color is cool. Love the Clone Wars ARC weapon and the backstory. I agree that a jet pack might work, maybe a modified Jango. Great job overall!

Thaks for the comments. Yeah, I might add a jetpack later on and the thing on his left arm is the gauntlet from the CW ARC trooper. Sorry about the pics, they are kinda blurry. I just used a regular Testors black flat.

Here's my custom pilot. It looks kind of similar to the black variant, but I might change him a bit. Sorry the pics are blurry, I think it's the camera.LMK what you think.

That black clone pilot looks excellent.  I really like the color scheme with the gray areas added in.  Looks great and the helmet almost looks removable.  Well done!

So, did this start as a white clone, or one in the black outfit?

 :P

It was the regular white pilot. I haven't found the black variant in my area.
