Ummmm.......to be honest, I have no idea how I should be looking at this.  It doesn't really like like a pack at all.  I need to see it ON someone to have any sort of opinion on design or anything.

I'm like Ranger, although I am liking it. Are you going to be consistent with the damaged paint job on this?

LED's are awesome btw!

It's a studiocreations pack. Here's how it will be worn

I personally love the look of these packs, and even though they're meant for sandtroopers they're different enough that they work well for any custom. I bought the battery boxes to make the main body awhile ago but never did anything with them. I can't wait to see how this one comes out.

edit- obviously he's also modifying it to make it even cooler. Great job with the lights!

 I am very impressed, that is one of the coolest packs Ive seen that looks like it wasnt extremely difficult to do. It looks to me like it belongs on the back of a clone commando. I really like it.

ill try to get a picture of it on me tomorrow so that people can see how its sits with my helmet and since its a heavy mando i was going more for a pack that could hold just about any thing that was needed like rations or med kits ammo guns or just a really big bomb not that i would accualy use it for that

belive it or not its really light and i had most of my armor in it that is the one good thing is that i can store all my armor -my helmet the heavist part is the top but its wighted just right so i dont really notice

that's really cool that you can carry all your armor around in it. I can just imagine you on the bus or something with that pack on your way to a con and people are giving you funny looks but not saying anything lol

I'm building a Heavy Assault Mando myself, and you've given me some food for thought.

That is so awesome.  Did you use a LED sequencer or just blinky LEDs?  I
