Heres a figure that didn't see much love when the casting call came out. I did this figure when the casting was posted but I did not have a camera at the time so here he is.

Cool idea, although I'm not sure that the clones would all be in Alderaanian ouniforms. Maybe painting the uniform something more imperial might work?

This sounds like such a neat concept, definitely one I've never seen before... but alas, all I'm getting is "Oops! My image for this link is no longer here"... sad.gif

UPDATE: Ah, just noticed that you posted the link -- thanks much. He looks very cool (though the picture is a little blurry). The sash is a nice touch; is it painted on, or added on some other way? Following up on Delaton's comment, I agree that a different color for the uniform might make it look less "Alderaanian" -- perhaps a darker, dressier version of that brick red that the clones are seen wearing at the Kamino facility in Ep. II. Or even all black -- the yellow of the sash look very striking on black. Just a thought.

By the way, which head is it that you used? I've seen this one in various clone-type customs before, but can't remember what actual figure it was from. If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's a good likeness of the Tem Morrison / Bodie Taylor mix.

Good to see your work here once again -- happy customizing!

Yay for red! biggrin.gif

Very neat design, Tonphanan; is this an original, or is it based on a canon design? (And please pardon this stupid question, but what exactly is the Coalition?) He almost looks part droid, especially the head, which reminds me of EV-9D9 from Jabba's Palace. The flip-down blue visor is a neat touch, too. I'd love to hear what parts you used for this one.

Keep up the nice work, and happy customizing!

(Points up)

AT-TE Gunner / Evolutions clone.

Dammit, now I have to put my AT-TE gunner's head on my Bail...


Say, how about Captain Antilles for a body? He's not freakishly tall for a clone, nor does he have that girly belt buckle. For the Imperial look, just pop the head on a Tarkin, or any of the officers that are coming out.

Nice interpretation of the Coalition Trooper. Don't know if I like the huge shoulder bells or not (and I know the neck is too long), but it's definately a unique custom.

I think a cool idea to mix it up some would be AT-ST Han legs and the Bail body... I like the idea of the sash but more across the body and I'd use cloth personally. A cheap remnant. Not sure on the colors but I like the placement of the Republic logo. I agree with Del though that a paintjob's in order at the very least to set it off from the Bail body. Something just to make it not blend in so well.

Thanks for the comments guy. I thought about repainting but I couldn't decide on what so I'll take your comment and see what I can do. I don't have an Antillies body but I'll see about shorting it up some other way.

The head is from an AT-TE Gunner I repainted it a little darker so that it matches the repainted hands.

Thanks for the comment I'll post something new later.

Thanks Finds..The Coalition Trooper was a FFURG Casting Call way back in Feb 2004, My figure is based on the drawing of that trooper.

Parts:
Head and Helmet-Scapel from G.I. Joe
Torso-Stormtrooper Concept
Arms-Coil Viper
Shoulder Armor-Iron Grenadier (Spy Troops)
Legs-Duke (VvV)

I didn't even notice about the neck. All the parts are moveable I'm better at more solid figures I'll try something different.

Nice concept....maybe a red or black uniform? The neck seems a bit too long also.

Very Original Idea!

I could deffinatly see Clones dressed like this for formal occasions, where they don't want to Scare Guest with Armored Troopers. It kind of reminds me of how the Secret Service wears Suits to Blend in, Rather than wearing a Military Uniform when the Pres. Apears in Public.

I might have to give this one a try myself.

Keep up the Great Work,

That is a good idea - a dress uniform for clones. What if you painted the figure a dark olive green color simular to Tarkin. I like the stripe on the side and I think it would look less alderaane looking in a different color.

Good work.

The Clone Troopers' Ball -- you know, Glassman, that's a really really neat idea! Sounds like a way cool idea for a diorama -- someone should give it a try! Whaddaya say, Tonphanan? cool.gif

But that raises the question: whom would they be taking to the ball? Naboo royal handmaidens? Young female Jedi (which would probably go against the Jedi code of the time)? Or would it be a stag affair?

Depends on your point of view -- if the have a streak of oedipus in them, I'd suggest Lama Su. A test tube may also be appropriate :-P.
