My wife harasses me sometimes about the money I spend on my hobby. I hate being judged over doing something I enjoy. When she starts grilling me about it I remind her that I don't smoke or drink. I have no car payment because I drive the same Beat-up truck I've had for six years why she enjoys a shiny new sports car because her job requires her to have a nice car. I work a job I hate so she can afford to persue her dream job as a realastate mogel. And I remind her that I can afford my half of the Bills and Morgage and have plenty of money left over to enjoy my hobbies when she can say that she can question me about my spending habbits.

This Is my Custom Blaze Trooper from the Revenge of the Sith video game. I took some artistic liberties so I know it is not Game Accurate but I think it captures the essence of the character.
LMK what you think.

Thanks for all the Great feedback guys!

    I'm sorry to reply so late. I've been a little cut-off from all Technology since Wilma came through South FL and snapped ever other telephone pole like a tooth pick.
    Luck for me I was in NC and brought back a truck full of generators and gas for friends and family.

I'll try to answer everones questions.

1> The Mech Trooper helmets are Master Chief helmets from J&R Productions. This helmet was a bonus they sent me for my orders being delayed. I've never seen any Halo figs in the 4" scale so I believe they are custom sculpted caste. It is a shame that J&R was shut down they filled a valiable niche in our hobby and only helped Hasbro sell more action figures to use with their custom pieces.

2> Peit in Trench Coat Recipe:Head=POTF2 Piet, Torso and Legs=Comtech Moti, Trench Coat and Arms=21st Century Toys (Battle of the Bulge German)

3> Dry Brushing on the Gamorean and Imp. Slaver suggetions-They actually are Dry brushed and it really helps pull-out the Detail in the sculpts. The Problem is that the Flash on my Digital Camera always washes out the the Detail and when I turn the Flash off  the images come out grainy and the detail is lost again. If anyone has any photography advise it would be greatly appreciated.

4> The Clone Sniper with Removable Helmet is actually a Storm Commando from the X-Wing novels and more recently from the New X-Wing Comic. I did take an Artistic liberty in adding the Night Vision Goggles to the Helmet.

5> Removing the Buttons from the WWII Germans is very easy. Just carefully shave them off with your Hobby Knife. Then use fine sand Paper to smooth-out the area. Finally tuch-up with some paint. The Imperial Tunics were based on German Uniforms only the Buttons were removed to loose that 20th Century feel.

Thanks again for all your comments,
