hello everyone, I made a custom trooper today after watching the clone war first season. In one of the episode where Plo Koon got trapped inside an escape pod with couple of these troopers. I really like the design of the graphics on their helmets. Now I really like to know who they are, what are their rank and what are their duties.  Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

I'd say that was either Boost or Sinker, from the second episode of Season 1: Rising Malevolence.

They're my versions of them on MS Paint. They belong to Commander Wolffe's group, but he wasn't seen in his armour during the episode. They served aboard the Triumphant before it's destruction. Boost is a private and Sinker is a sergeant. Follow the links at the top to read more about them.

Hope this helps you.  :classic:

With all my respect for you skills, but I would hate it if now every second post would be about more or less skillfull "designed" clone troopers  - like on another Lego related page. (Most of them are poor victims of an evil Sith Lord called Darth Edding.)

Their creators mostly doesn't seem to have enough respect for a beautiful, pure white clone trooper worth 2.-€ and make something of them looking very close to an armored transvestite...

Best Regards,

JanSued

Are you saying you don't approve of the armour variation? I have to disagree completely with you there. I really like how they're customised according to their batallion and growing personalities.

Anyway, that belongs in another topic that we had a while ago, and not here.

By the way, diabloiij, your clone looks good, but it looks quite a bit different to mine, despite the helmet detail.  :grin: Anything related to custom figs should go in the 'Minifig Customization Workshop'.  :wink:

You've got a point jansued. When I see others (less skillfull) painting their minifigures, it brings tears to my eyes.
But I can understand others making variations according to batallion, personalities, etc. ...only this is done poorly most of the times.
I hope TLC will bring more variations (like normal/gunner/scout) or clone characters (like Rex and Cody) in the future.

and there are exceptions;
in this case, I think this helmet is done nicely :thumbup:

Agreed, otherwise everyone would post up their customs and spam the forum.
