Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 5: Able

One of my favorite Star Wars stories is from the Star Wars: Empire comics #26 and 27, which takes place right after the Episode IV.  In this story, Luke and his X-Wing Squadron are setting up a communications center on a remote planet when the Empire shows up and hijinks ensue.  While there, Luke stumbles across a clone trooper who was the sole survivor of a ship that crashed there during the Clone Wars.  The trooper, BL-1707 aka Able, joins the Rebels and becomes a supporting character in the series.

The fine folks at Hasbro were nice enough to make a Clone Trooper Fighter Pod with his helmet off.  I used one of the Hologram versions from Series 4 to make Able.
