Star Wars - Alliance Special Forces Brigade Officer
Was it Spudafett whon said that GI JOE was the best thing that ever happened to Star Wars customizing? Guess he was right. This Rebel Alliance Special Forces Brigade Officer, Codename: ROCK, consists of the torso, crotch and upper arms of a 25th Clutch, lower arms of a POC Recondo, head from a RET Roadblock (likeness of actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), legs from a Resolute Flint, vest from a Marvel Captain America, helmet from a Rebel Endor Commando, gunbelt from a TVC Luke in Bespin uniform, demolitions kit from a ROC Firefly and the rifle from a 30th Law. Again, it is a no-paint kitbash. I wanted the Commando Officer to have the rugged look of a seasoned fighter and therefore went for the Bantha hide vest and the muscular lower arms with the gauntlet and the cloth wrap.
