    Here are my modified Battle Droids I did a while back. Before Sideshow came out with their 1/6 scale versions. I purchased the STAP with Battle Droid kits and just used the droids. I had to make several of the joints moveable to hold the equipment. Delicate work considering there is not alot of plastic there to begine with. For the Commander I scratched a new back to account for the missing backpack and the alternate antenna.
    Let me know what you think.

    I think they look great.
    As nice as the sideshow figures are, I wish I'd bought a bunch of these back in the late 90s (and beyond).
    Would have been easy to have BD troops and STAPs that aside from articulation, look every bit as good as the sideshow droids.
