ARC Flame Trooper >Updated<

Post by Fixer on Tue Sep 09, 2008 1:37 am

Update 1.2 - Took out most of the text concerning the pictures.
Update 1.1 - Rephrased a lot, also ran a spelling and grammar check.
Update 1.0 - Added more pics, and links.


After digging around in my collection for my CC-Cody parts and two dark bley minifig hands for about an hour,
I was finally able to finish my ARC Flame Trooper. The finished result is shown below.

Epic Pose Pics:




Flamethrower and Backpack Pics:







Alternate Backpack Pics:




Preview:

Flame - This is CT-1737 'Flame'. Over.
Control - We read you Flame, go ahead. Over.
Flame - I've encountered an unknown droid, I'm just checking to see if you have any information on it. Over.
Control - Our databases don't have it on record. Looks like you're on your own. Over.
Flame - Alright, preparing to begin attack. Over and out.

Very nice, but I like the other one better fits the flame thing with the red.

But other than that it's all good.

Once again, thanks for all the comments, they're all appreciated! Smile
I think I responded to everybody who posted so far, but if somehow I happened to accidentally miss one I'll make sure to edit this post.

Awesome use of minifig legs in the backpacks. Though, like others, I think I prefer the WIP that used Fox instead of Cody.

It does, it's Commander Cody from the new Republic Gunship.

Well you can for $120 if you want to buy the set, or you could buy just the CC-Cody minifig from BrickLink.
Yes, I can verify that I did use Cody's torso and helmet from set 7676: Republic Attack Gunship to make this minifig.

BTW Sialboats, here are some links to make finding and buying set 7676 / CC-Cody a lot easier.
BrickLink Catalog Page for set 7676.
BrickLink Catalog Page for just CC-Cody.
