Arconan Soldier

Created for "Yakfinities #39 - Alien Military", this was a moderately involved figure that came together rather quickly. The Yakfinities projects at Yakface.com are great exercisers for customizers... providing a basic theme or concept open to interpretation. It's a great way for me to use up some left over fodder and keep the creative juices flowing.

Thematically, I imagine this guy to be Separatist soldier during the Clone Wars. Among the many disappointments of the prequel films is that while the fact that the supposed "bad guys" are really the Rebel Alliance in its infacny is an intriguing concept, it's glossed over to the point where it's either confusing or just boring. I think it's the third prequel film that has a line in the opening crawl that reads, "There are heroes on both sides" yet we're never shown any instance of this.

Parts Recipe:
Hem Dazon - Head, Hands, Feet
Rum Sleg - Torso, Arms
Anakin Skywalker Cold Weather Gear - Hips, Legs
Embo - Shoulder Armor, Rifle
