Hello everyone,

I am about to tackle a custom minifig I always wanted to do.

A Custom Cody using the Trans-Orange Visor piece.

I searched trying to find some pics of pictures to use as a guide line and had no luck.

Does anyone know where I can find some reference pics?

Hi PIG,

Great to see that you'll be takling Commander Cody. I have a ton of Cody Reference pictures on my computer, that I'd be more than happy to email to you.

If you are interested send me a PM with your email, so I can hook you up with the reference pictures.

Rayman

I am looking for a pic where someone uses the Trans-Orange visor (from the old ice planet series) for Cody's visor.

That was the popular piece to use as a visor not too long ago.

I saw several people on this site created Cody that way.

I am not finding any pics now though unfortunately.

Here is a picture of the orange visor

I can't remember any specific MOCs, but a quick search of Brickshelf with the word "cody" yield quite a few possibilities. Including my own. Wink

Number five is quite good. Hope this helps.

Or you could always make one out of clay, like I did! Very Happy Worked pretty fine. It's just that acrylic paint does not work as well or as neatly as decals:

Good luck with getting this to work. Smile

As soon as I bought the Republic Gunship (2008 release) I took out the Cody and searched for my translucent orange space visor. However, on trying to fit the visor on the figure, I found out that it does not fit on, the holes in the new helmets are too far back. That irked me, especially since I cracked the visor part way in the front trying to get it to fit.

Yeah they visor has to be modified a bit to fit on the new helmets.
