From what I've seen, Everyone cuts at the knee and pops the lower leg from any old articulated trooper, then they grind an indent in the place where you cut the knee off. Then drill a hole and pop the #41 leg in.

On mine, I just used a complete leg swap with the Evolutions Clone.  I know this isn't exactly the same type of Commando, but it should still work if you are going to be able to repaint it.  The leg armor will be a little thinner though, but in my opinion it still looks ok.

Actually, yes I did end up trimming the pegs just a bit.  Sorry I didn't mention that.

As for Gunner legs on him, I'm sure it's possible, but it's not something I've tried doing at all.

WHEN I get mine I plan on cutting away the commando's legs under the knee, then boil and poppin' out the lower leg of the clone, and then drilling a hole in the "peg of a leg" schorch has then so I can fit the SA's lower leg into it.
Cheers!

I've actually...well...hopeing to make all of delta squad..the basic armor seems the same just fixers backback will need to be sculpted...since we get a "scorch" backpack with the commando figure wich is just a regular packpack(whcih sev and Boss wear) with two tube things,you could cut em' off with an x-acto.
Cheers!

kinda off topic (even though i just did the same swap chewie did) but has anyone tried doing their own Republic Commando designs? Something original i mean. I've seen some off the wall ones on ebay that aren't very good, but anyone done one here? I'm planning on doing "THETA Squad"  8)
