Rebel Commando

A Rebel Commando is a Rebel Trooper trained for special forces operations. Rebel Commandos fought in the Battle of Endor. As well trained soldiers, Rebel Commandos were often used for scouting and demolition missions. The commandos on Endor were a special 12-man team with members from all seven Regiments of the Alliance Special Forces, they helped out Princess Leia, Chewbacca and Han Solo blow up the shield generator to the Death Star II.
This is a nice creation by Kazumi and Omar Ovalle (Omar + kamitera). I like the use of the cloth (even though it's non-LEGO), and the face and helmet design captures the essence of the character. The absence of arms and legs on this trooper is a bit odd though, it leaves me thinking that maybe the Ewoks got to him...
