I've seen around here some people who have combined an 25th Air Trooper with a Wave 2 trooper to make, what is essentially a red sigil trooper from the original Cobra five pack.
My question is, could you use a Legions trooper (cheaper) instead of the Air trooper? Looking at the pics on yojoe.com, it looks like all you're pulling from the Air Trooper is the red logoed Torso, and the rest is the Wave 2 trooper. So, wouldn't the Legions trooper work also, or are the blue unis a different shade or something?

you could. the difference, though, is that the red sygil trooper has a red sygil on the left arm as well that the air trooper also has but the Legions trooper doe not. but I don't know how the Legions Trooper is less expensive than the air trooper. if you buy a Legions set, they are the same price.
sure, if you are finding the Legions set for $5 you can choose anyone you want (but again they are the same price), but if not and and you have to pay $10 or more for a Legions set you may as well buy a single packed Air Trooper for $6, which would be cheaper. point is, I don't think the Legions Trooper is cheaper than the Air Trooper.

I only did it that way cause the Air Trooper has gloves.
The Legions Trooper has bare hands which I'm not to fond of.
The Cobra 5 pack Trooper does have gloves so it's more accurate if you make one with gloves.
You could just paint them black but paint chipping issues will occur when swapping guns.
Plus you get a spare Cobra jet pack/Air helmet to do whatever you like with.

Thanks for the replies from both of you... I don't know how I missed the gloves detail.
I wasn't planning on buying a Legions set, but I have been seeing individual Legions troopers cheaper loose than Air troopers...
One more quick question about the troopers' necks: Does the neck separate from the torso? I've done head swaps, but not taken apart a torso, but from the looks of it, the neck and torso are one. If that's the case, using an air trooper's torso, wouldn't you end up with a red neck and black mask from the wave 2 trooper?

I switched out my air troops with the silver sigil troopers that have the backpack holes. Which came in the wave 4.5 repack. the earlier ones have no backpack holes and are stuck being troops.
The silver logo, black mask matches them better and it gets rid of all that yellow. So now i have mostly legion pack looking troops. and all my elites have silver sigils and my troops have the red sigils.
