For Marchikoma I build this Fuchikoma which even fits a fig quite nicely, see also https://ghostintheshell.fandom.com/wiki/Fuchikoma for more information about the original.

When I had build this Fuchikoma based on the Ghost in the Shell manga, I also had to come up with some figs based on section 9, https://ghostintheshell.fandom.com/wiki/Public_Security_Section_9_(organization)

These are my (purist) take on the members of section 9, from left to right:

Saito - Tactical Sniper
Motoko Kusanagi - Major/Field Commander
Togusa - Investigator/2nd Field Commander
Daisuke Aramaki - Lieutenant Colonel/Section Chief
Batou - Lead Investigator
Boma - Spotter, Investigator, and bomb specialist
Pazu - Investigator
Ishikawa - Covert Intelligence and Technology Executive Officer

and a Fuchikoma who does not want to miss the photo session.

Thanks for looking.

That's awesome! I love Ghost in the Shell, and at some point was thinking how to build purist minifigs. Batou was as far as I got, and only in theory:

  • I am still convinced that Chirrut Imwe's head would be a great macth for Batou
  • I always liked Batou's ponytail look, but the closest thing to it is the Pirates of the Carribean piece, which it is not available in Tan, only Dark Tan and Dark Bluish Gray.
  • Flat top pieces – both the old and the new one – used for Zane in Ninjago sets are good alternatives. Honestly, Zane looks almost like hew as inspired by Batou among other things.
  • For the body, I would go with the Collectible Minifigures Series 3 Pilot's bomber jacket.

Regardless, I really like your interpretations. Saito, Togusa and Ishikawa are definitely my favorites.

Thanks @imvanya,  I agree that Batou could use some work. I am also not entirely sure about Pazu.

For Batou that suggested head is nice but I would like to keep them yellow for now. I made them without resorting to buying extra parts so made them of the ones I had available. Although I could have used Zane's hair and maybe another torso. 

I also really like Saito, that head fits perfectly and for Ishikawa that hair piece has an additional bonus. I can attach a visor for the computer screen he uses, when attaching the silver ice planet visor it looks like an attached screen.

Fair enough. Just to clarify, my comment was meant as a criticism, it just felt like a good opportunity to share some ideas I had for a similar thing :classic:

@imvanya, no problem, I'm sure to update the figs if I find better parts to use.

It's a good idea to share ideas.

Great work on the Fuchikoma. Your collection of Section 9 minifgs is good as well.
