ImperialCommandos.com - News and Updates
« on: July 17, 2007, 06:55 AM »
I went looking for the imperialcommandos site and realized its appearantly dead.
Was wondering if anyone out there saved the pics from that site?
They had alot of cool concepts there.
I know Sithfire made a few of the helmets from that site.
As I am currently working on a bunch of Imperial Commandos of my own I wanted to try sculpting some of the helmets. They had some cool stuff.
So anyone got the pics saved anywhere?

I recently got a slew of new Stormtroopers, with Imp Commandos in mind myself. Only to find my link was dead too.

Can anyone help?

Its weird... its like not only is the site dead, but most the references to them on other sites seems to be gone too.

I'd PM Sithfire.  He seemed pretty into them, the site, he'd probably be your best go to guy around here.

I think I saved about a dozen images from the site.  I'll double check.  I know I have images of most of the helmets.  I guess they ran out of money or got a letter from Lucas.

Thank you thank you thank you!
That first one in particular is one I really wanted!
Now I can get started on it and some alternatives!
Much appreciated!

I will indeed contact Sithfire about this to see if he has anymore.
I tried an email of one of the guys involved with ImperialCommandos but the email was no longer valid...oh well..

Does anyone know who did these guys and where they were origionaly posted?
I was browsing the various forums while half-asleep (a common event...) and downloaded the pics before passing out. I was not awake enough to post a reply at the time. However the next day I tried to remember where and who had made the customs and could not figure it out. I have been looking the last few days and had no success. Its driving me nuts!!!
Anyone know who made these guys?
(Also what was the playset that he used in his diarama?)

Thanks Straxus this pic will help me out a lot. Unfortunately, I have no idea who did them.

The background though looks a lit like Cobra Mountain.

Sorry I had not popped over here to mention that I figured out who it was.
It was Jonnyboomboom from over at RS. I had trouble finding the post again because it was an old thread, but feel stupid as I overlooked that he had posted the link for me in the ImperialCommandos.com thread that was at RS...hehehe. (I have not had much sleep lately...thats my excuse and I am sticking to it...)
You are right, it was the Cobra Mountain playset.

I will try to repost the links people found at the other sites, so that those here that are interested can have access to the pics as well.

It sure looks like a repainted Geonosis Playset to me... You can see the battle driod parts in the ground there and the doors are idetical, as are the walls.

From what a few people told me, Hasbro reused the same playset for both. Kinda like the ewok playset got reused for the robin hood figures. Though this is just what I have been told, not from personal experience.


Here are the links given on other sites for ImperialCommandos pics
jon4557 at RS helped out with the following info:

EDIT- Removed last pic due to the website name being in the pic

That would make sense I suppose.

Thanks for digging for all of these pics BTW. I'd like to get to a few commandos some day down the road, and now I know where to look for reference. :)
