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.
