You can almost hear the rumbling of a jet-pack circling nearby,
as you make your way to your moldy old ship -

That reminds me of an old painting I've seen of Darth Vader when he was still in the concept stage.

I know the image you mean, but this looks like a Dark Trooper to me, from the first Dark Forces game.

Note the 'dark' in the URL. Wink Hence, Darktrooper.

If you mass-produced and sold these I would just...die. Darktroopers own.

When I first saw Moldy, I immediately thought Moldy=Moldy Crow==Dark Forces=Dark Trooper.

Heh...I thought it was a Swamp Trooper at first when I read "moldy" (from Jedi Oucast I belive)

Nice work, Jeff! I love it! Smile

Yes, swamp troopers were in Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, stationed on the fourth moon of Yavin. But they look more like scouts, if I remember correctly.

I don't know or care what a "darktrooper" is, but the helmet does remind me of the concept vader helmet. Very samurai-y. Hopefully this'll be painted gloss black, right?

Well to remain true to the dark trooper it should be dark grey I believe.

I also vote for you to mass produce these, they're awsome

What about the Battlefront Dark Trooper? Those seem a little more cannon than Action Figures, to me...

Canon has nothing to do with looks or appearance, it has to do with being in the movies or not. Wink

Well it may be more canon than not, if you get me. So one might be more official than the other, in terms of EU.

I must admit, when Jeff sent me pics of this the other day, that is what I thought it was going to be. Embarassed

Now seeing it painted it is obviously A Darktrooper. Very Happy

Very nice work, Jeff. Plus it hs dual uses, darktrooper and concept vader. ::D:

Like what?

I suppose there could be a new Wookiee weapon, but I
just don't see any real need for it.

The Clones use the short "carbine" version of their rifle,
but it's nothing THAT different over the standard IMP
blaster with the scope cut off.

I'll have to wait to see if there's anything truly unique
enough(for me)to warrent the cost.

Wasn't planning on it. Although I'd love to make something like
this available for anyone who would want it, it falls under the
"it's too close to infringement" heading as far as I'm concerned.

Now, if I could find someone who could make some really nice
ABS resin casts from it(like Robert Martin), I'd try that route.
