Title: Darth Cadus Suggestions?
Post by: Talon_Karrde on August 21, 2007, 03:24 PM
Hey all,

im thinking of doing a Darth Caedus/jacen solo, but cant decide on parts.  I think he was wearing some kind of GA (GAG) fatigues in Legacy; but not 100% sure on what that looked like.
if u have an idea or you have done one id love to see some pix and hear your ideas.

any help would be appricated.

thnx

yeah i saw that pic, but going from what Ben wears as paart of the GAG, i thought Jacen might have something similar.  Black fatigues and some armour maybe??

Okay first, that was a HUGE SPOILER...

Regarding this revalation, it's unbelieveable. Legacy takes place 100 years after the OT. So that's 120 after ROTS (approx). Hett was at least 25 during ROTS, so that would make him 145 years old at the time of his revalation. I don't think Tusken's live that long, and certainly not humans. Even being force imbued, Luke didn't last that long, and we all know the Dark side eats away like a cancer. So I can't see Hett being Krayt. Really disappointing knowing this now. And here I was all set to collect figs from that series. I am seriously reconsidering that now. Way to go Dark Horse. Muck up an otherwise good story line.

Asharad isnt a tusken, his dad was just captured. His mother is a Human too. Once again a slave. Asharad was raised as a tusken. And Krayt has been in stasis many times if you remember.

krayt is a big beliuver in stasis and he went to the sith lo9rds holodrons for an extension of his life...which we also see

I believe it is a TAC death star trooper body and the cape and skirt appear to be from a VOTC vader.

Yeah, i was thinking along those lines as well, the arms are stumping me.  the hands look armoured like a troopers, its possible that he did some scaling down on the forarms. Might the armoured shoulders b villie's??

Chest is either TAC Jabba Luke or TAC DSTrooper.  Forearms & probably hands are Darth Revan.  Below the knee is a Vader, above the knee is either the TAC Luke or the TAC DSTroopers.  I'm guessing the shoulders are also from Revan but they look remarkably like Royal Guard shoulder armor as well, but the Royal Guard has swivel arms which makes me think they're Revans'.


Hope it helps.  :)
