light_soldier_full_colorcc_coalition_light_preliminary2Finally, the piece I’ve been hinting at for three days…

This piece of artwork for the Coalition Light soldier came about because we were contacted by a fan of the game, Justin “gtaiiilc” Stokes. He is heading to CrisisCon and will be constructing a replica suit!

“Hey this is the almighty nerd Justin “gtaiiilc” Stokes here.

I have begun gathering up resources to make a Coalition Light replica suit… for a convention (don’t mock me >_>). The event is in February but I hope to have it long done by then so I can start saving up for my BIG project of win: a Cortex Command arcade cabinet!

That will will be a long ways off though, but for now: PICS OF THE BEGINNING!”

The convention is slated for Spring 2010, so we have some time for the project to complete – I’ll post updates as work progresses.

Thanks for being such a nerd fan, Justin!

If anyone else has any DR/Cortex Command real-life crossover events (Birthday cake? Gold mining in your backyard? Cosplay?) drop me a line @

    seems cool that he will be cosplaying as a light coalition can’t wait to see more pics.

    Cool, but I was hoping for something like features in the next build…

    Nice piece of art, hope that Arcade cabinet works out.

    I am liking these more frequent posts.

    This should be interesting.

    Also, he appears to have beaten my record for “old computers lying around”. Need to get me some more of those things.

    That artwork looks FEMALE.

  8. iKP - # September 30th, 2009 at 5:11 am

    Isn’t this supposed to be a female coalition? I thought so… Anyways, Weasel, good job. Data is really not good at posting. Good thing ur here with us now.

    So that was a coalition head! Cool. Glad to know they may have hair instead of something that looks like a bronze head.

    Awesome 😀

    Oh nice, I saw that pic while snooping around Arne’s website a few days ago.

    It really does… I mean the Soldier is not buff at all… even the shape of the body looks female. While this is not necessarily bad seeing as how they are brainless clones it is a step off the beaten path. Heck after all the steroids these clones get i bet they aren’t anything but an it 🙂

    It’s not like they need a gender or anything, they’re gonna be shot down! But that’s still a nice ass you got there, Coalition Light! You uh, you single?

  15. Ch33n - # September 30th, 2009 at 8:20 am

    We need boobs for that.

  16. trolleydude - # September 30th, 2009 at 9:06 am

    When are we getting news about the actual game?

  17. Gnome - # September 30th, 2009 at 9:27 am

    Thats one heck of a computer area. Minwax, smoke detector , randomness. Good luck on the project looks like you got alot of supplies.

    Also Trolley the news about the game was the artwork for the Coalition Light soldier.

  18. trolleydude - # September 30th, 2009 at 10:59 am

    oh ok

  19. irksomesloth(casey) - # September 30th, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    hmm, i always imagined the soldiers having slightly baggier cloths, and a helmet that’s bolted onto the mask.

    >>We need boobs for that.

    That is not very fair for the flatter chested women out there, also boobs probably get in the way of BEING IN A WAR

  21. Madmax - # September 30th, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    Holy crap that is amazing. I can’t wait to see the finished product.

  22. Thor - # September 30th, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    coalie light has a nice butt.

  23. Allen - # October 1st, 2009 at 12:32 am

    that thing does have an ass on it. And if you think i’m turned on, then good luck proving it, ass holes.

  24. Ethan - # October 1st, 2009 at 8:02 pm
