This is the 105th Special Operations Legion.



Each member will have a name and be unique in appearance by the time I'm done. The three in the back row all have names but I have yet to personalize their appearance.

Front row left is Sergeant Marev (Mandalorian for fist), the leader and close quarters combat specialist for the commando squad attached to the 105th. Front row right is Commander Arashi. By the time I'm done, I'm hoping to have twelve regular members, four commandos, a gunship, and two pilots customized in the legion's colors.

The commando's gun is a Tri-Gate Creations Ballistic-12, and the rest are Marauder Inc. NCM rifles.

I've always had it in my head to do a very alien looking Sith Lord that doesn't have the standard human anatomy, something that would be distinctly different in terms of how he could move in a lightsaber fight against some poor, unsuspecting Jedi. I've looked through comic books shops and online and have found that more figures than I would suspect pretty much follow the basic shape and form of everyday people.

I'd be looking for something that can fit in with 1:18 scale figures, though I want him to be large and imposing, and I'd like him to fit in with the design aesthetic of Hasbro's current Star Wars figures. I've looked at Aliens figures and decided they're too distinctive to that franchise, Predator figures and decided the same (plus they're basically humanoid), SOTA Lovecraft figures and decided they're too aquatic but close otherwise (and I'm not sure of their scale) McFarlane Spawn figures and ruled them out for various reasons, Voyager Species 8472 and decided those figures don't fit the aesthetic, and even an upcoming Cloverfield monster figure and decided it was too tall if nothing else.

In terms of kitbashing a figure, I'm thinking if nothing else, I might take a McFarlane Jackal figure and try to find a way to graft some McFarlane Water Dragon (1st series) wings onto him, then take two more of the Water Dragon wings, cut off the membrane part and attach them as a set of extended claw arms. It wouldn't be ideal, and I frankly doubt my ability to pull it off. It would be my intent to do something to get rid of all the armor on the Jackal as well.

Just a tad bit of backstory on the intended character, he's intended to be alive before the Sith went into hiding, back when there were many Sith. Darth Chimera (as he would be called for obvious reasons) would be the attack dog for a more important Sith Lord. I figure since there are many Sith, some of them can specialize and Chimera's specialty will be straight up, brutal killing.

So, any suggestions? Thanks very much for any help.

The figure can be loose. In fact, I'm going to open it, so you can save yourself shipping and open it yourself if you have it carded. I live in Florida, so some of my cards are a little warped from humidity, so go ahead and ask what condition the card is in if you're worried about that sort of thing.

I have only received feedback once on this site, but I trade on the Fwooshnet Forums as bobtheguardian where I have received positive feedback three times out of three trades. I also have several outstanding trades on that site which should garner more positive feedback in the coming days.

Let me know if I can ship loose, as I'm looking to save money if possible, otherwise I am more than happy to ship carded.

Please PM if you are interested.

I'm willing to trade one or more of the following:

I've removed all of the screws, but the front panel still holds the two halves together, and I can't figure out how to remove it without risking a break. Has anyone taken one fully apart and can advise on how best to do it?

Thanks in advance.
