    The CMF jungle explorer torso is a reasonable shout as well https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb3655c01

    Pinterest works as well, and keeps you clear of the regularly changing subscription issues with flickr. Once you've uploaded the photo you just need to click on it in the pin, which will open the image in a new tab and copy the url from there.

    The resistance pilots those arms are for have the dark orange flightsuits. It looks like Ponda Baba's jacket is bright orange?

    Deep into the custom arm rabbit hole now, so here's an updated 501st clone pilot with the Firestar 501st custom arms and the new Lego 501st legs (plus the new 501st clones, minus the jetpack, with their respective Firestar arms)

    Does anyone happen to have Firestar's custom 501st clone trooper and jet trooper arms and also the 501st clone pilot (sw0439, from the Z-95 Headhunter) who would be able to post a photo of how the pilot looks with those arms? I'm going to update my pilot with the new 501st legs and a set of Firestar arms and not sure which would look better. Thanks!

    I tend to not make use of the sequel characters (though I am a fan of the resistance officer and trooper minifigs, which have effectively been retconned as just other rebel forces in my headcanon) but had ended up with a number of Poe and Finn minifigs so, after a bit of a play around to find complementary pieces, I now have a unit of what kind of looks like a resistance-styled update of a fleet trooper? (The lighting stops it from being immediately obvious but that's tan arms to match the shirt on the trooper with the Poe torso)
  7. That's such a nice tank droid. It's a kit I'd like to see Lego redo, and this really nails it.

    The Rogue One trooper legs (dark tan, reddish brown, or dark bluish grey) are a pretty good with anything look when they're in line with your colour scheme, and swapping the hips out if the torso already has a belt doesn't tend to spoil the look.

    Finally worked out an Imperial Super Commando look that I'm happy with. I wasn't a big fan of the proper legs of the prototype Boba; the torso is so much more detailed that the legs just look a bit lacking in comparison. This is a mix of wanting the figures to look a bit more Stormtrooper-like, and a cost compromise as I didn't want to spend £15 per figure that seems to be the going rate in Europe now to build a squad of five (the default squad size I work to for troopers) when I only had two already. Turns out that, at least yesterday in the UK, the helmet, torso and jetpack can be picked up on bricklink for little more than a third of the cost of the complete figure. Anyway, helmet, torso and jetpack from sw0631, the standard Stormtrooper legs switched to white hips rather than black, Firestar's custom Snowtrooper arms, and the original white hands switched out for light bluish grey to continue the colour scheme from the torso and helmet prints.

    Awesome, thanks. Maybe I was just unlucky with the particular backpacks that I bought (CAC ARC trooper pack and Snowtrooper backpack IIRC). I'll give them another shot.

    How are the neck brackets on these? I've only ever ordered a couple of custom backpacks (have to say I forget if they were Arealight or CAC, or both) and I found the neck brackets too thick each time. It's obviously just personal taste but I didn't like how thick they were and how much higher the head/helmet sits on the figure as a result. It's the one thing putting me off from buying any more. Has anyone found any where the neck bracket is of similar thickness to the Lego pieces? Thanks for posting these pics. I've gone on a big arm upgrade mission for my Imperials recently. EclipseGrafx seem to hit a lot of the gaps that Firestar don't make, only I was reluctant to pay for postage to the UK without having seen them in action. These look great.

    In lieu of anything more accurate, I'm using a Brickarms bolt-caster, without the bow or scope added, and with the stock and the piece of molding that sits in front of the bow trimmed off. It's clearly not that close but it gives it the open look in a more proportional body than the Lego weapon that comes with the figure. If anyone else has any good suggestions I'd be curious to hear them as well.

    I'm not going to claim that it's perfect - the second belt prevents it from being that - but Lucy's legs from the Lego Movie 2 work pretty well on the Mandalorian minifig that is lacking a leg print in the battle pack (I've not seen the show yet, so don't know if it's based on a particular character with any particular costume design on their legs)

    Firestar's Aurra Sing and Ahsoka heads (the focus is a little off on Ahsoka; the print is more crisp than it looks here). And, yeah, I have no issue at all with how Aurra's hair looks from that angle, but I do still dislike it viewed from the side or behind. Oh well.

    It's how it looks from the side and the back that has always bugged me more than from the front. If there was a piece that became less bulky (though admittedly that may be a issue when it comes to strength of the piece, given the shape, and making it tough enough to not break through play) as it neared the end I'd be happier with how it looks. I'd tried adding an open stud previously, and it just ends up looking worse unfortunately. Thanks though. Maybe the original head exacerbates the issue, and the hair will look better once it's on the non-Clone Wars head.
