    My armor idea

    I love Commander Cody, and I just love the visor concept. Also love the Phase 1 clone helmet. So I thought why not create a Mandalorian like that.
    Also (correct me if I am wrong) Who trained Cody? Was it a Mando? Or was it just the ARCs and Commandos that the Mando's trained? Why did Cody's group have orange. ( I looked up as much as I could, but never found an answer.)
    Just reading The Republic Commando books and thought of the idea.

    Sharp artwork. I like the colors. Whats on the shoulder?

    Ive seen a couple of mandos with the visor, havent seen one come off quite right yet. They always seem really boxy. Id suggest not making the top edge straight across, make it have the same arc as the top fo the helmet.

    The only other concern I would say is vision, your gonna be having tunnel vision for sure

    I too like the Cody visor as i'm (with help) making one for my EP3 clone lid.

    I really like this idea & artwork, you could even have both ear peices as the right hand side (on Boba) and mount arms to the visor so that it could be raised if not needed? 8)

    Cody was amongst the first set of Clone Commanders trained to ARC standards by the ARC Trooper Lieutenant Alpha.
    I love the concept though and your right, as the only Commander with that kind of additions to his kit, the idea had to have come from somewhere and it;s logical to assume that it would be a Mando

    I think it's safe to say that your concept is completely awesome. If you can bring that drawing to life then it will be quite the mando to behold.

    Cody's boys (212th Legion) were orange for no other reason than it looked cool to the guys who made the cgi models, in case you were wondering

    i think the fin needs to be further forward and longer
    will the visor effect the deployment of the range finder?

    Re: My armor idea

    You should try and make some armor! It's not really all that dificult at least to make just some simple armor. I just cut mine from steel. Umm i think it would be sweet to see as a set of armor. though i have to say that the visor looks a little low. well, then again he is looking down. I like it though, looks really good.

    Re: My armor idea

    I love it! Cody is probably the collest Clone commander so to see his kit in a Mando version is awesome!

    Thank you. I wanna say Cody was inspired by a mando that helped train the clones on Kamino.

    Substituting a letter still makes it against the code of conduct, I'm pretty sure. Please keep the language clean. :-P

    (Not that I, as a U.S. Marine with a VERY extensive vocabulary of such words have much call to say anything, just keep in mind that this is a clean board, with a variety of age groups that belong.)

    You have to have [img]website/something.jpg[/img] to get your image to show up on forums. So [img] and [/img] before and after the url with your jpg image.
