Star Wars Action Figures / Spec_Spidey's Customs Updated 7/23
« on: July 23, 2006, 02:20 PM »
Here are a few pics of my first Star Wars custom other than the occassional head swap I have done. I think it turned out pretty good except the paints I used rubbed off in a few places when I put the figure back together. I guess in the future I am either gonna have to use better paints or crack open the torso and put the figures back together instead of boil & pop. Also gonna have to work on my photography. Any ways here is my Trando Mando! ;D

I used the following parts:

Torso, upper arms, waist ~ Saga Boba Fett
Head, lower arms, legs ~ Saga Bossk

Let me know what you think.

The Wookiee Arcade / Do you think we will ever see?

Does anyone here think we will ever see a Grand Theft Auto type Star Wars game? I personally would love an open ended Star Wars game like this. It would have so many possibilities. You could create your character's appearance. Run around Coruscant or maybe Mos Eisley. Choose to be a jedi, smuggler, bounty hunter, sith, or Imperial depending on the era used. Maybe even have just a few medium sized cities on a couple planets you could travel around. It could even use a bit of the Fable morality feature to help determine appearance based upon actions. A game like this, I could play for months or maybe even years and never grow tired of it simply because the only reason I get tired of GTA games is because I prefer sci fi settings and the repeated use of profanity sometimes gets on my nerves.

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Removing Factory Paint?
« on: June 23, 2006, 04:23 PM »
Call me crazy, but I have several 501st and Shock Troopers that I want to convert to plain white clones so I can add my own markings and designations. I have never tried to remove factory paint, I usually just paint over it for my customs, but I want to keep from painting these completely white by removing the factory paint. What is the best thing to use to remove the markings on these clones? 

Hey Hasbro! / A new approach to the line
« on: May 26, 2006, 03:06 AM »
Not sure if this has been brought up before, but I got an idea. The idea comes from a quote I read on another forum from Hasbro. The quote was referring to the G.I. Joe Direct to Consumer line. Basically a Hasbro rep was quoted as saying that they can make roughly 6 new head sculpts for the cost of 1 entirely new figure sculpt.

This info, if based on facts, gave me an idea. I would like to see Hasbro use this to make various head sculpts of some of the more popular species within the Star Wars universe. I would love to see Trandoshans, Rodians, Twi'leks, etc. No named characters. No film specific characters. Just a few different variations of the species. Make maybe two or three head variations for a species and put them on a few generic types of bodies with decent articulation. For example, create a few Quarren heads. Put one with appropriate hands on a VOTC Han body and call it a Quarren Smuggler. Take another head with the same hands and put it on a VOTC X-Wing Luke and call it a Quarren pilot. Hasbro has done it to some extent with the ROTS wookies and if I remember correctly they did it with the Klaatuu in the vintage line.

I know I am in the minority on this, but for me these toys are not all about having  figures from the movies whether they appeared for two seconds or fifteen minutes. For me it is the setting itself. Sure I can take several Bossk figures and paint them varying shades, but in the end they are all still Bossk. However if i had a couple Trandoshan head sculpts casted in different hues and attached to various bodies.... then I could finally make my Trandoshan Wookie slave trader squad. ;D

Just my two cents. feel free to comment.

When are we gonna get a Bothan figure? :o

Customizing Tips and Tricks / A few questions
« on: May 18, 2006, 03:24 PM »
Hello! I am new to the forums here and apologize if this is not the right place for this topic, but after seeing the VOTC Saga figures last week, I decided to add Star Wars figures to my collection. I am eager to start doing custom figures and have read quite a few tutorials on the boil & pop method used to remove limbs, but I have a few questions. Any replies would be appreciated.

1. Are the ball joint heads used on Star Wars figures the same size or different sizes?
2. Does boil & pop work for ball jointed shoulders?
3. Is there a tutorial or guide for separating ball jointed limbs i.e. elbows or knees?
4. Is there a list of compatible parts from other figure lines? For example, how compatible with Star Wars figures are XD or Elite Force heads, legs?

Hello! I am a new comer to these boards. I just started collecting Star Wars figures again after seeing some of the great sculpt and articulation in some of the recent releases. My other collections consist of 1:18 scale World War II and modern military figures.
