Hey Hemble! Great to see you back, we've missed you! Thanks for the kind words as well.

Fritz- If you have trouble finding the bust-ups, hit up red5sixx and he'll hook you up.

Anyway, I promised Commando pics...so here you go.





One of the first thing I'll do to customize each commando I do is articulate the knees and possibly the ankles. Hasbro dropped the ball there, but they did give him a ball jointed waist, which gives him a decent range of motion for firing positions.

Another nice feature is that the explosives on his leg are removable...not only does that add play value for the kids and give customizers some options for weaponry, but also indicated he was designed so that his parts could easily be replaced so Hasbro came equip Sev, Boss and Fixer utilizing the basic sculpt with a repaint and retooled accessories.

Enjoy!

OK, I'm JEALOUS, lol.

Is the anti-armor attachment on his gun removeable or does it slide off or ANYthing?  I was REALLY hoping it would but it's not looking too good since no one has posted that it actually does yet~

Ugh, can't wait to get a Commando for myself!!!! lol

 :-\lucky. I realy do hope (like Aeseven7), that the Anti Armor attachment is removeable. Other wise we have to sculpt an entire assault rifle. :'(

Thank you so much for the excellent pics DD, you lucky dog!  Wow, it looks pretty cool.  A little disappointed in the knees, but they know it's gonna sell hot just like they made it.

This is just the kind of figure that will probably interest a lot more people into the world of customizing.  I expect another influx of threads at Scum about how to customize... hopefully if that happens here it won't be the Greenday type of questions.

Thanks for sharing the Scorch photos.  I'm still not sure on this guy.  I haven't played Republic Commandos yet so I guess I'm not hooked on him.  He looks like a pretty good figure though.

The anti-armor attachment unfortunately does not come off, but there's a definitive line where you could cut the grenade attachment off and modify it easily into the regular deece.

Judging by the removable accessories, I'm wagering Hasbro will be releasing Sev with the sniper rifle, and Boss or Fixer with the regular deece and flamethrower, so each commando has one of the weapons in the game. Too bad we know the big "H" won't think to include any extras like the Trandoshan chaingun.

Still, even though I know Hasbro is likely to release the other three, I can't wait to start customizing. And yeah, it's gonna be tough because I'm going to wan't to make the Deltas, the Omegas from the novels, and at least one fan-fic unit before I'm done. *Sigh.*

Oh, and Brent...play the game. It's a LOT of fun.  ;D

Thanks for the pics DD!
That figure looks great, I can't wait to see it in person.  Does anybody have an idea to add knee articulation?  The legs look a bit bulkier than the regular ROTS #41 Clonetrooper so it doesn't seem like a leg swap (or even lower leg swap) will work very well.  What do you guys think?
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.

H honestly think you couldm get away with a clone trooper lower leg swap, as although a BIT bulkier, the lower leg armor on the Commando's isn't fundamentally that different.

Or you could go the Chewie Von Frankenstein route and just add the clone ball joint to the existing leg, like he's done on some of his customs. I think that's the route I'm going to try.

Hmmm, CHEWIE's version sounds a bit difficult, although that would probably be the best version  :-\  If I can find a few of the figures, I might try each and see what works for me.
Thanks DD!
