Now! The fig.

Overall, I like most of your troopers, however, one thing I find that I can not get past...is the paint job. I don't know if it's the paint or the application, but it looks terribly globbed on and puffy. The dots on his head look like two symmetrical green pimples Razz. Maybe not put the paint on so thick? I like him though 8/10. Wink.

Ever since I made him I've been yelling at myself about it, so I'm planning on redoing it, so there's no reason to explode on you......

What, really?!

I'm amazed, I just use printed paper and glue, and it works fine for me...maybe it's just because of my glueing skills. Oh, and Uberlag, you should look at Philip Morgan's stuff on MOCpages. He paints most of his clones and they're really neatly done.

I love that guys work. Hoth, LAAT/c, Galactice Marine. Funny his Galactic Marine actually got me back interested in Lego Star Wars and brought me over to MOCpages. I really wish lego would make them Sad

My guess is that they'll hopefully be a toned down version of the BP we saw from Comic-Con. Maybe 2 Troopers, A Sergeant, and a Pilot? Hopefully the droid BPs have A commander, security droid, pilot, and maybe a droideka?

Nope there aren't any pictures out yet (that we know of) but I say give 'til September and we will Smile

Why would you need a colored clone when you can just do it yourself? Oh wait, I forgot you were a purist... KILL THE WITCH!

Because it's a HECK of a lot easier. To do a colored Clone you have to buy a plain torso, legs, hands, a head, and a helmet, then apply decals and sealant. Or you can paint them which is tough if you want it to turn out good. It's just easier and cleaner if we have an official one. Wink Blue Arc

I'm with Astoria, purist is the way to go! A sharpie? If you're going to mod at least do it right with decals. Sharpie and hand paint is so gross in my opinion.

You used so many negtives, that, that sentance effectivley means you don't know how to use sharpies. Razz What I think you meant was: "Not if you know how to do it... Which I do!" Wink Blue Arc
