Mike are you using Rub-n-buff for that chrome effect?
Your own sculpt? That is awesome! Looks like you walked off of the screen!
Freaking insanely awesome, bofa de nutz
That is a magnificent piece of work there. It really shows attention to detail, and the results speak for themselves. Fine job!
Great job, I love the seamless look. Is it hard to troop in a seamless suit or is it like a second skin?
mike, your work is phenomenal! you are more than welcome for the pictures. thanks for giving me something awesome to photograph
mike also finished my sandtrooper helmet with the small details painted by hand and scratch built the backpack. The suit sold to a member on here a few weeks ago. Amazing artist.
Mike: That order66 image IS awesome! Great sculpt and build.
Do you have reference for the chest strap attachment point? From what I've seen it appears they go 'into' the top of the box. Just curious.
Who made the DC15?
impressive, most impressive!!! makes me want to do a clone
That is just SICK!!!
Unbelievable!!! I am speechless....
That is one slick costume. It looks incredible. Great job.
Freakin' sharp, man! I've actually ogled this before, on your web gallery. Found it through good ole' Google. Most impressive!
i dunno... i don't think you did a very good job putting it together. send me a kit and i'll show you how its done!
dang. i was hoping he'd fall for it!
That is one incredible piece of work, I'm blown away. And those pics say it all really.
Thanks for making me feel somewhat inadiquate and yet happy for some reason
And yes, you're correct about the straps going in the belt boxes. There's actually a small detail between the box and belt that i have yet to add, that will give the illusion of it going "in" the box. I was under the gun time-wise to get the suit done for this particular event. I'm currently adjusting and tweaking things I didn't have time to do before.
I'm actually re-sculpting the lower calf piece altogether, the current one is too small and not as accurate shape-wise as I would like.
Thanks again everyone!
I've seen the pics on your MySpace profile as well as on the GML forums. Those were impressive enough. These are the first high-quality pics I've seen of the costume. That is a gorgeous costume, my friend! VERY well done.
Awesome work, looks freakin' great!!!
Mike that is stunning, I can't wait to see it in person. Well done on all the hard work, makes me want to do a clone too and I never thought that would happen!
O M G!!!! That is one of the best (if not the best) clone I have seen yet! Way to go!
Nice armor, man.
Very, very, very nice.
Gree RULES! I've gotta second that. This is probably the best clone I've seen on this site.
I not seen this before. Absolutely Fantastic. If I were to do a clone, would be Gree. A well recognized character when trooping along with Cody.
Yeah, Mike is the man when it comes to prop building. He helped me assemble my TD a few years ago and it was amazing. I was even lucky enough to own one of his scratch built TD backpacks. MIKE, I totally need to retake those photos in the studio! it would be siiiiick!
Here's some pics I found of me in the DCon Parade this past year.

WHOA, glad someone fixed the pics....that is the BEST Gree I have ever seen Mike!!!
TD-1536 - Where all the parts from for your Cloner?
Wow man, that armor is incredible. And those pictures are really great as well, especially the last one with the Emperor. Very nice man, very nice indeed.
well Mike...ive seen these pics before and was blown away then...and recently i was thinking of doing a clone since there are alot of LFL events in the works this fall (video game releases, new season of clone wars etc) that require clones.. but wasnt sure which version to do...i think you just made my decision for me...i hope i can get mine to look half as good as yours!
Super excellent work bro! and Phils pics are awesome, glad we got him here in the ECG now heh
Ohhhhhhhhh man, congratilations!!!!!!!!!!!!! just two words!!!!!!!!!!! SPECTACULAR, INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!
well done Mike, your Gree is amazing!!
This is so amazing. I was talking to Lou about Gree and he mentioned he knew someone who had a perfect one... I now know who he was talking about haha... SO AWESOME!
very nice gree, are you going to DC this year??
That looks so cool! The shiny green visor is awesome! And by the way in my opinion you had one of the best costumes in the parade.
don't we have to be at the park at 9?? i think so, i will check the thread on the 501st main site. see you then.
*looks for my jaw* oh there it is on the floor!
that is incredible. gree is one of my favourite clones, he looks awesome.
tell me my friend, are there templates for the clone helmets. im building a boba from scratch at the moment, but id really like to make a clone too. if you could give me any hints that would be amazing.
but seriously that is a fantastic suit. id give anything to have a suit like that.
This is probably the best suit in the Legion period. I think the first time I saw it was Farpoint 2008 then again at DragonCon last year. When him and Hippie were standing together Gree/Bly, made everyone else's costumes look second rate. Too bad I cant hook up with ya again at that pisshole in North Carolina
Mikey! Go get em tiger!
I wore this a second time at the Dragon Con parade this year, complete with two BARC troopers. Pictures are very, very scarce but I found a few on Fliker, but they're tiny. More should show up, I know many legion folks were walking with us taking all kinds of pictures.
I hate you....man what a SWEEEET tume brother. But seriously, I hate you...
that is sme sweet armor
I like it very much buuuuuuuuut, didnt you try to kill Yoda??
Sorry didnt mean to out you in your own thread.
its awsome dude
wow I readed your page dude. I want to be a clone comander,im 11, and when i was seven (it was 2005),i was 1st gray (i live in europe),and teacher asked: "what u want to be when u grow up",I answerd: I want to be a clone commander!!! And nobody knowed what that means, I said: "I want to be a star wars clone commander!!! And everybody laughed.I was ashamed and i still want to be a clone commander.I need your advice.And i hope i writted all correct becose I only learn english as optional subject ( don,t forget im 11)
did u read what i wrote
- clone commander is serious cost, guess you can't yet afford it,
- you'll grow and so the armor (if you are able to find one your size) will be soon too small,
- wait until you're at least 18, so you still know if you want to spend money&time on costuming,
- building a clone requires some skill if you want to make it look good. You paint it yourself,not to mention glueing and all the things in process.
Why not start with some "toyish" clones first ? Or ask your father to make some cardboard or even plastic armor for you. Don't want to discourage you.
Ah and don't post that many times, one after another... you can always edit your previous post.
are u TD-1536

biography of "commander gree"
CC-1004 was a senior clone commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. Possessed of a keen interest in alien species and cultures, 1004 was singled out to participate in a special training program by ARC trooper Alpha-17 that encouraged individuality. As a token of his independence, 1004 was rewarded with a name and chose to be known as "Gree," a reference to an obscure alien species.
During the Clone Wars, Gree led the 41st Elite Corps, a division out of the 9th Assault Corps, along with Jedi General Luminara Unduli. He became an expert on alien cultures, giving his unit a specialization in hostile conditions, counterinsurgency, and long-term deployment on alien worlds in "hearts and minds" operations. He saw action on Uba IV, Dinlo, Rodia, and Alzoc III, amongst other worlds. In the first year of the war, Gree was assigned to escort the captured Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray to trial on Coruscant, but they were waylaid by Separatist saboteurs and a defector from the Republic, and Gunray escaped.
In the last days of the war, Gree accompanied Jedi Grand Master Yoda to Kashyyyk in response to a Separatist attack. After breaking through the enemy lines surrounding the planet, he helped fight back against the droid forces of the Separatists. In the middle of the battle, Gree received a message from Supreme Chancellor Palpatine declaring the execution of Order 66, the extermination of the Jedi. Gree was killed by Yoda while attempting to fulfill the order.

 Bred for war
"I am a man of great wealth, and I can be very generous to my allies."
"That is a very tempting offer, Viceroy. In the meantime, I have a gift for you."
―Gree presents handcuffs to Viceroy Nute Gunray — (audio)Listen (file info)[src]
Gree in Phase I clone trooper armor
CC-1004 was cloned from the bounty hunter Jango Fett on the world of Kamino, raised to be part of a Grand Army to serve the Galactic Republic in the rank of senior commander. The standard clone education provided basic information on the species of the Republic, but as 1004's sense of individuality developed, he decided to become an expert on esoteric alien cultures. 1004 set about seeking information with such fervor that even the Kaminoan clone masters took notice; but whereas this would normally be treated as an aberration and be removed, a new program was beginning that took advantage of individuality. The Advanced Recon Commando Alpha-17 began a training program for clone commanders, with an eye towards cultivating independence and individual-mindedness. Part of this involved, as a reward, recognizing the commanders with individual names. 1004 picked the name "Gree", after an obscure alien species; he figured that if anyone recognized the source of the name, he would know they shared his interest in alien culture.
Gree, under Jedi General Luminara Unduli, was put in command of the 41st Elite Corps, part of the 9th Assault Corps. The 41st specialized in long-term deployments on alien worlds, where they conducted "hearts and minds" operations in trying conditions to gain the allegiance of the native populations. Gree learned further of alien species and customs, becoming an expert in the subject, and his unit soon gained a reputation as specialists in hostile conditions, alien recruitment, and counterinsurgency operations. They pioneered the use of All Terrain Recon Transports, BARC speeder bikes and Juggernaut tanks for reconnaissance missions. Throughout the war, Gree occasionally took personal command of the smaller units Sarlacc Battalion A and B as well. At some point in the war, Gree participated in the Battle of Tibrin, and later took on the double stripe hairstyle to honor his clone comrades that had perished during the battle.
 Gunray's capture
Gree: "You and I disagree on what makes a good sol—"
Gunray: "You should have taken my offer when you had the chance, clone."
―Gree to Captain Argyus, shortly before being knocked out by Nute Gunray — (audio)Listen (file info)[src]
Gree salutes "General" Jar Jar Binks on Rodia.
When word came that Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray had taken Senator Padmé Amidala hostage on Rodia, Gree was dispatched to that world to aid her. By the time the commander and his soldiers arrived, Amidala and her companions—including Senator Onaconda Farr of Rodia and Representative Jar Jar Binks—had gained the upper hand and placed Gunray under arrest. Gree took the Viceroy into custody, transporting him to the Venator-class Star Destroyer Tranquility. Luminara Unduli and fellow Jedi, Padawan Ahsoka Tano, rendezvoused with Gree, his Green Company, and a number of Senate Commandos led by Captain Faro Argyus to escort Gunray back to Coruscant for trial.
En route to the Tranquility aboard a Consular-class cruiser, Gunray attempted to bribe Gree to free him. Gree ignored him and escorted Gunray in shackles to his holding cell on the Tranquility, where he oversaw the Viceroy's interrogation by the two Jedi. In mid-interrogation, the ship came under attack by Separatist forces; after learning from the bridge that the enemy forces contained boarding ships, Gree ordered Green Company to prepare to repel invaders. The enemy ships lodged themselves in the ship's hangar bay, and the clone forces arrayed there reported back to Gree that B2 super battle droids had entered the ship and were heading for the detention level. Gree and Unduli left to reinforce their position, leaving Tano, Argyus, and his commandos to watch over Gunray. They were able to cut off the advance of a unit of droids outside the detention facility, but soon ran into further trouble—while they had been occupied, Separatist Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress had infiltrated the facility. They arrived to find her in the process of freeing Gunray and imprisoning Tano; though they soon gained the upper hand in numbers, Ventress set off a series of thermal detonators in the engine room and used the distraction to cut her way through Gree's soldiers and escape. Unduli followed, leaving Tano and Gree to watch over Gunray again. Against Gree's advice, Argyus persuaded Tano to leave and help the Jedi Master.
Gree fights Faro Argyus aboard the Tranquility.
Argyus soon received a signal by comlink from a now-outmatched Ventress; he turned on his fellow commandos and killed them with a shot, then opened fire on Gree. As Gree went for cover, realizing Argyus had turned traitor, the commando freed Gunray and took him as a shield. Gree disarmed Argyus with his rifle, but Argyus landed a kick on the commander, removing his helmet and disarming him of his weapon. Argyus ridiculed Gree's dedication to orders and explained his own defection, but as each suddenly dove for a gun on the floor, Gree knocked Argyus unconscious. Gunray knocked Gree out in turn, and the three Separatists escaped the Tranquility. Gree was present on the bridge of the vessel as the Jedi debriefed to Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker.
 Further combat in the Clone Wars
"Okay rocket jockeys, fire up your jets. Let's move!"
―Gree, to his troops on Alzoc III[src]
In the course of investigating the Separatist leader Count Dooku's alliance with the Nightsisters of Dathomir and their assistance in completing his war vessel Devastation, Senator Padmé Amidala was shot down over the planet Christophsis. Gree accompanied a pair of Jedi in their search for her. Their LAAT/i was shot down as well, and Gree ordered the Jedi to leave him and his clones behind and continue the mission. As they left, the LAAT/i dislodged from the cliff where it was perched and plummeted into Christophsis's depths. Gree was able to recover the vessel, however, and arrived in time to assist the Jedi in their fight against the Nightsisters, opening fire with the LAAT/i's guns on the dark Force-users. The Jedi had not found Senator Amidala, though, and they ordered him to find a landing site. Gree set off, and before long, they contacted him again, having retrieved Amidala and in need of medical assistance for her when she arrived. The group rendezvoused and left the planet.
Gree slices the damaged frigate's computer.
Gree accompanied Jedi Generals Luminara Unduli and Aayla Secura, and Clone Commander CC-5052 to investigate the planet Alzoc III, where Separatist activity had been reported by the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. The Republic squad took several All Terrain Tactical Enforcers which, after scaling a cliff face, were able to reach the coordinates of the location provided by Jabba. Upon arriving, both the Jedi and the clone troopers witnessed a crash site of a large capital ship and were stunned by the view of huge masses of ice and numerous starship parts floating freely in the air. Deciding to investigate the unusual phenomena, Gree and several clone troopers used their jetpacks to reach what remained of the ship's hangar, while the Jedi followed them by using the Force to navigate through debris. When the group rendezvoused at the hangar, it was attacked by a Vulture droid and it became apparent that the crash site attracted Separatist interest as well. The Jedi quickly defeated the droid and ordered the clones to scout ahead and find the ship's data recorder, while they themselves engaged the battle droids and followed by an alternate route.
After reaching the remains of the ship's bridge, Gree began to slice the vessel's data recorder, while the Jedi and the clone troopers protected him from the attacking droids. Once the battle droids were successfully neutralized, Gree was able to show his generals the record of the ship's final moments. It became apparent that an individual had used a Telgorn dropship to board a Munificent-class star frigate carrying two classified weapons, stole one of them, and then departed shortly before the frigate was hit by an explosion. The vessel had then crashed on the planet, where the weapon created a gravity anomaly. Soon, Gree also discovered that Asajj Ventress had already visited the crash site and set the remains of the frigate for self-destruct. The Jedi ordered the clone troopers to safety and then briefly dueled Ventress. Secura and Unduli trapped the Dark Jedi under the bulk of ice before leaving the crash site and reporting to the Jedi High Council.
Gree in his Phase II armor
On Uba IV, home to a droid manufacturing plant, Gree faced virus-filled octuptarra combat tri-droids, forcing him and his troops to keep their helmets sealed and breathing filters working. As the war neared the end of its first year, Gree, in charge of Sarlacc Battalions A and B, and under the command of Jedi General Vaas Ga, was deployed to the world of Dinlo. When they were pinned down by Separatist droid forces, the Grand Army's Improcco Company, under the command of General Etain Tur-Mukan, was dispatched to Dinlo to open up an exit route for them between the forest where they were trapped and the delta region of the river where Tur-Mukan established an extraction point. As the battalions set out along the shoreline, Gree and Ga called down air strikes for Improcco. Gree, Ga, and approximately one thousand of their men were able to escape, retreating to the Acclamator-class assault ship Fearless, which returned them to Coruscant.
 The Battle of Kashyyyk and Order 66
"It will be done, my Lord."
―Gree, in response to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's execution of Order 66[src]
In the closing days of the Clone Wars, the planet Kashyyyk came under attack by Separatist forces. Jedi Grand Master Yoda personally set out for the world, with the 41st and Gree attached to him; to better suit himself for operations in Kashyyyk's lush greenery, Gree equipped himself with camouflaged Phase II clone trooper armor. Yoda and Gree's forces encountered Separatist resistance above the world, however. Alerted to the arrival of reinforcements, the Separatists maneuvered a cruiser to block Yoda's flagship from landing. Gree began searching for alternative sites to land, but they were too far from the front line. Before long, though, the clone commando unit Delta Squad on the planet's surface was able to commandeer a set of cannons from the Separatists and shoot down the cruiser, opening a space for Gree, Yoda, and the 41st to land.
Gree and Yoda took up position in a command post in the tree city of Kachirho, joined by Wookiee natives Tarfful and Chewbacca. When Gree detected that the Separatist forces had started up their main power generator, meaning another attack was imminent, Yoda gave the signal to cue their forces. The Wookiees led the charge on the beach below, while the 41st flanked the droid forces from the boughs of Kachirho; Yoda and Gree remained at their post. In the middle of the battle, Gree received a transmission from Supreme Chancellor Palpatine ordering him to execute Order 66, a command to kill the Jedi. Gree signaled to another soldier, and the two took position behind Yoda. However, the Jedi Master sensed their intent and, leaping over them, decapitated Gree and his fellow trooper.
edit Personality and traits
"Why'd you do it, Argyus?"
"A clone like you would never understand. I wanted a life more than empty servitude."
"And for that, you'd betray the Republic."
―Gree and Argyus — (audio)Listen (file info)[src]
Gree's loyalty to the Republic would be his death
Commander Gree was a loyal and disciplined soldier. His sharp mind and battle prowess made him an ideal second-in-command for the renowned Jedi Master Luminara Unduli. Though he served Yoda faithfully during the Clone Wars, his ultimate loyalty lay with the Republic. The commander would not disobey a direct order from a superior, and he held in contempt those who betrayed their post to the Republic. He was willing to sacrifice his own life to fulfill a mission. Gree showed himself at the end to be fully loyal to the Republic, turning on his Jedi General at the Chancellor's order and dying for it.
Some who sided with the Separatists—such as Viceroy Nute Gunray and traitorous Senate Guard Captain Argyus—saw Gree's allegiance as servitude, only present because of his birth as a clone. However, Gree was acknowledged by his fellow clones, the Republic, and the Jedi as a being with individualism, for which he was granted his own name. The commander was abnormal, with respect to his fellow clones, in his pursuit of knowledge of alien species. Though discouraged by his Kaminoan cloners, Gree's independence was stimulated in Alpha-17's training program, and he took an interest in knowing who else shared his particular passions of learning. Gree was a capable slicer and also spoke Galactic Standard Basic.
edit Behind the scenes
Gree's on-screen debut in Revenge of the Sith
For his first appearance—barring the movie's adaptations—in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Gree was, like all clone troopers, voiced by Temuera Morrison and portrayed as a computer-generated character. The character received his first unmasked appearance in the Star Wars: The 30th Anniversary Collection line of toys. His first appearance unmasked on-screen was in "Cloak of Darkness," an episode of the series The Clone Wars. In both that episode and its preceding one, "Bombad Jedi," Gree was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, the voice of all the series' clones. Gree also made an appearance in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes video game, though he is a playable character only in the Nintendo DS version of it.
In the Swedish translation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide, Gree's rank is incorrectly stated to be colonel. The Prima guide for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Jedi Alliance mistakenly calls him "Kree".
The storyline in the Nintendo DS version of Republic Heroes is entirely different from all other platform versions. In it, the Duros bounty hunter Cad Bane informs the Republic of a Separatist base established in the abandoned mining space station Juma 9. The base, however, is protected by a defense perimeter which can be bypassed only by using recent Separatist clearance codes. Jedi Master Kit Fisto remembers that during his mission to General Grievous's castle on the third moon of Vassek, his starfighter's scanners picked up a strong energy reading coming from within one part of the structure. The Jedi realize that such energy reading can only mean the presence of a Separatist archive containing the codes and dispatch Luminara Unduli and Gree to retrieve them. Although Grievous himself has left the castle, he has increased the security inside it, and as such, Unduli and Gree—who is armed with a rocket launcher—are forced to fight numerous battle droids.
Eventually, the two reach a computer containing the codes, but when they try to slice it, a force field activates, trapping them inside the room with the computer. After Unduli and Gree fail to check in in time, the Jedi dispatch Master Plo Koon to rescue them. Koon successfully completes the mission and deactivates the force field. As Unduli and Koon travel to their starship, Gree remains at the computer to track their progress and assist them when possible. The two Jedi reach the ship and take off, signaling Gree to reach a landing site near the castle in order to be extracted. Having secured the codes, the commander fights his way to the landing site, only to find that it is overrun by droids. After destroying them as well, Gree is extracted by the Jedi, and they all leave Vassek's moon.

I think this kid is a bit on the rediculous side... Did he seriously just post a wiki page here?
as much as I hate wikipedia... starwars.wikia.com aka wookiepedia is actually a decent source of star wars info... it's mostly accurate, and there's a lot of dedicated starwars fans (more like fanatics) who contribute and edit the site. From what I've been able to discern, it's mostly fans who know their stuff, who compile the information from legitimate sources (books, SWInsider, interviews, the movies/TV series, etc...) and post it on the website. Like I said... pretty darn accurate.
Mike, that is an awesome Gree mate! Too classic with the BARC troopers.
This made me choose Gree, come jump on the bandwagon! It's gotta be the best clone suit IMHO.
While this hobby is geared more towards adults, I do hope my efforts and hard work have inspired you to perhaps join our group when you're older. I know that when I was only six years old and in the first grade, I too, told my teacher and fellow class-mates that I wanted to be a Stormtrooper when I grew up. It took another 25 years or so, but I eventually fulfilled a child-hood dream of becoming a real Stormtrooper.
If anything, let it inspire your dreams over the next few years.
From the DCon Parade 09.
Not sure of photo credits... cheers to whomever took these, I really appreciate it!!
