The Lucas Arts game "Force Commander" my most favorite
PC-game. Especially I am fascinated by the commando-unit of the
Rebel-Alliance, the "Rebel Infiltrators". These unit,
founded by General Beri Tullon (a former imperial general, who changed
the sites to the Rebel-Alliance), is specialized to take over AT-ATs
and AT-STs. Also when taking over enemy-buildings this units have
more success than regular Alliance Forces. In Battle on a open battlefield,
they are not so good, but in vehicles and buildings, they are unbeatable.
The Infiltrator "Art"
to take over AT-ATs and AT-STs:
First, the Infiltrators fly with their jet-packs to the belly of
the Walker, blow up or cut an entrance hatch and penetrate the inner
of the vehicle. In close combat with vibroknife and blaster (rifles
are unsuitable because of their length) they fight their way to
the cockpit free and take over the Walker for the Rebel Alliance.
It is indeed spectacular when the imperial Walker (has a blue frame
for easy recognition) changes suddenly its colour to red (colour
of the Alliance) and now shot at the imperial units.
To complete these report, I have to mention, that the Infiltrators
had their first appearance in the game "Rebellion". But
in that game, there is not yet anything mentioned about their ability
to take over vehicles.
I found an action figure of another toyline.These toyline with the
name "Special force - elite unit with moveable parts"
from "Troll&Toy for Kids" of "The Toy Company"
produces 4-inch action figures, which include special forces from
police and military. Very nice detailed and for the spectacular
price of 2,- Euro each figure. I have really to ask, why the STAR
WARS-figures are so expensive, compared to that figures.
I cut the head with the
helmet of this figure away, also the head of a POTF2 Endor Rebel
Soldier and changed the heads. Then I cut from a Boba Fett jet-pack
both rocket-engines away and sticked it on the sides of the pack
of the Endor Rebel Soldier. First I had to cut away a tube on the
pack, therefore, the rocket-engines have enough space for sticking
Finally I painted the figure complete black, also a mine from the
new Han (Endor) figure.
Then I put the figure the mine in the left hand and a Han Solo blaster
in the right hand. Ready was the Rebel Infiltrator.
