I find it amazing that some white people go on holiday to become coloured, yet at the same time they despise coloured people.

Also, out of interest, I found this, and didn't think it looked too bad, a rugged soldier look to it, kinda Arab/African look:

Also, I've kept in mind I want to use other minifigs as well, so a yellow army could be better than investing in tons of figs. I thought some yellow, a few peaches maybe. You've got to remember also, that this is a future African army, so who knows what a population would be like. Rather like in Halo then, with a balanced mix of various races.

I wasn't too interested in the springs and deformed arm appendages, but I believe it was designed so you can play "Basketball" with plastic briks. ???
I think they jump up on their stands for slam dunking. I would use these for people with cyber-prosthetics and the like, but look! His legs are strapped together at the base! Perhaps a saw job. But in reference to the face, look, it's yellow but slightly darker, while still containing that classic LEGO look.

The springs are for flicking them or something.
Don't worry about the legs they aren't joined, the minifigure is on a 2x1 plate.

Mr. T looks like he's getting ready to charge his lazer.

Wait, did I just read that coloured people can't be racist?

No, just I'm not a racist. If I make a racist joke, it is a joke and stays a joke. I have greatest respect for everyone, unless they annoy me.

Wow, derailment by author.

Why don't you just buy the heads and not the entire bodies? The hands are different from regular hands, too.

Yeah, but it might be interesting to add a few of those bodies to my collection.
