I just happen to have a Shadow Trooper I wanted to customise into a commander and thought it might be fun for others to join in, since there are so many possibilities to explore. And have a chance at a prize while they're at it.
... And think about it, guys and gals -- how often in our hobby do we have a chance to be REWARDED for our fine ideas and artistic efforts? As in, actually tangibly REWARDED? This is one of the few such chances I've ever seen. And if it's a clone, well, they are
some of the more versatile types of custom figure out there, as far as sheer number of customizing possibilities. Which only increases the number of suggestions for which one can be REWARDED!
So let's have a moratorium on the Negative Nelly-ism, shall we? After all, no one's holding a gun to anyone's head and forcing them to participate.
To reiterate my own suggestion: the lighter gray bits might be repainted a darker color -- doesn't have to be black like the rest of the armor, but just a darker gunmetal type gray. (Do what you need to do to avoid trouble with the ball joints, however.) I like VF/501's suggestions of spy gear, too.
