Does anyone know what the symbol that looks like  a fancy l with a line through it means. I know it has to do with money.

Thank you SLC. I might want to order commandos from Ricky UK. (although I think you need a credit card, so I'm doing a fundraiser and one of the prizes is a pre-paid visa card)

No, it's a fundraiser for the Virginia Diner. I gotta sell 100 items to get though. It's a pre-paid 100$ visa. Other prizes include pre-paid cell phones, iPod shuffle, and a mini DVD player.

If I could afford ricky's clone commando figs, I'd buy them in a heartbeat. Too bad I'm poor and have even poorer sculpting ablilities. if not, I'd have done it myself :P

 I still think that ricky's commandoes were the best clones ever. I mean, those things are made from scratch! it's crazy!

Well almost from scratch, the bodies are CW SA clones cast in wax then majorly retooled. The headsculpt is indeed from scratch.

And speaking of Commandos, DD have you finished your's yet? :)

 Well, thelegs are from the SA clones. The body that hecast in wax and resculpted was actually the bootleg clone from hong kong. Still, it's incredible at the level of detail and accuracy (which is dead on) -- especially considering that at the time he did it, there weren't much reference pics.

I traded for one of those Commandos a while back from him, but for some reason it just didn't "do it for me" so it was given as a gift to a fellow member here.

They are great figures, but it just didn't fit in for me for some reason.  His talent is amazing, I guess I'm just not a huge fan of the Commando design (I know, I'm in the minority).

 Just kidding. Different strokes for different folks I guess. I myself prefer the genesis of all the troopers; The Mandalorians of course. The mystique of the mandalorians and the sheer badass-ness of jango and boba on film probably contribute to my mandalorian mania.

Well, I just don't know why I feel that way.  For some reason the whole design of the character itself to me was just "clone bandwagon" driven.  It's a nice design... if I had kept the parts, I probably would have turned it into a custom bounty hunter.

I understand what you are saying chewie, I traded for one as well, a year ago, and while the sculpt and concept are incredible, and his skills are legendary, the figure is small and not bulky enough. Which when put next to other figs takes away from the glory of it.

I still like em though...I'm just to lazy to tackle one of my own, or i would try to pick up on the stuff i mentioned.
