I re-painted this trooper for my son, and he has named him "Dark Eye." My boy has come up with a full back story for him...Dark Eye is part of the ARC Troopers, and is good at being sneaky. He is a good trooper but doesn't listen to orders very well. Later on after the troopers betray the Jedi, he sneaks off instead and goes out to become a Bounty Hunter in Mandalorian Armor.
Asajj Ventress...I really enjoy the style of the animated Clone Wars series, and I repainted Ventress to bring out more of the mold details and to darken her look up some and give her more contrasting colors. I also added a black skirt to her wardrobe. To me, Ventress reminds me of how Transformer's Starscream used to be in the old toon, sneaky, whiny, and a coward. But that is what I like about her character too and this was a fun little repaint.

Darth Bane is without a doubt my absolute favorite Sith Lord. I clipped the collar from his plastic cape and used a Vader cape instead and reattached the collar. I also swapped out the skirt for another soft goods on from my fodder boxes. I painted the removable armor of the figure, and did the rest of the figure in all black. There is some confusion or something about Bane, as some stories have him using a curved hilt red saber, and others where he has a traditional saber with purple blade, so I gave him both.
