Captain Alderaan - STAR WARS Avengers

I actually started this first batch of STAR WARS AVENGERS back when Disney first purchased Star Wars. They've sat on my shelf for a while as I wanted to go back and add more insignias to Captain Aldeeran's armor.

"The sole survivor of an experiment to apply Clone combat training and flash learning to non-Clone soldiers representing various member-systems of the Republic, the volunteer from Alderaan was cryo-frozen in an emergency medical pod when the research facility housing the project fell to Separatist sabotage.

Thought dead, he drifted frozen in Outer Rim for decades until a chance rescue by Rebel salvagers. Essentially brought back from the dead, he was recruited by former Clone Commander Fury to join the Alliance in taking on the Galactic Empire, to bring back the ideals of the Republic that had fallen while he been in suspended animation.
He took on the title of Captain Alderaan in memory of his lost homeworld, and fashioned his armor after the Clone soldiers who had once been the champions of the Republic."

The inkjet waterslide decal I used for his shield lost a lot of its pigment in the transfer process, so looks pretty rought on his shield. I've since switched to laser printer decals that work much, much better.

Parts Recipe:
Cloud Car Pilot - Head
Republic Commando Boss - Torso, Gauntlets, Hands
Clone Trooper Heavy (Training Gear) - Shoulders, Thighs
Galactic Marine - Boots
Rebel Trooper - Helmet, with LEGO visor
Embo - Shield
