Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Exjedi's Customs

Where do you get the styrene strips for these customs?  They look like a nice thing to work with.

I'm not sure I would want to use a figure with so many joints exposed.  This may be a tough one to make look "natural".   I'll reserve final judgement until you are finished!!  Looking forward to seeing the final product.

I posted my Clone Wars Jedi in the Monthly Group Project thread above but here's another shot of them here:

I was also playing around with an idea that a friend of mine came up with.   Here's what a Senator does on the weekend - "Kiss" Cover Band:

That is a nice looking Shock trooper.  The lines are so clean it looks factory painted (or better!).  I'm with Greg, I didn't realize that was a sculpted backpack.  Wow.  What do you sculpt with?  Keep up the great work.

I finished up my Voolvif Mon (Wolfman) and added my own Roronn Corob as well.  Let me know what you think.

I've also been tinkering with a Saesee Tinn in Clone Armor:

Holy crap, that looks awesome.  You are being a tease by only putting such a small picture up! :)

I saw a new(?) Spawn figure this morning at Wal-Mart.  He has a very fat human-like head on it.  It may fit and look good.  I'll see if I can find a picture.

Chewie, I like the update.  Would you post the shot before you superimposed the background?  That may help us "amateurs".  Thanks!

Do you shoot against a blue screen or just try to simple cut away the background?

Great Photo Chewie.  Did you super-impose that background on the image?

So, I've been thinking about this.  I think the Cave troll is a good idea.  However, other thoughts I had.  Maybe a 12" Emperor head.  Also consider some Marvel larger scale figures (Thing from the Fantastic Four??).  Obviously, since the neck posts are in different parts of the body, some sculpting would be necessary to blend them together.  Anyway, just some random thoughts.

I have an extra Opener Ephant also.  I was wondering what you could do with it... now this thread will help answer some questions.

head - SAGA Jempa
torso - ROTS Royal Guard
arms/hands - ROTS Royal Guard
thighs - ROTS Royal Guard
shins/feet - ROTS AT-RT Driver
hood - ROTS Bust Up Sidious
cloak - GI Joe Swamp Rat


Holy Cow.  Thats a lot of Parts.  I haven't used or seen any of the Bust Ups.  It seems that they are the right size for many customs.  Are their parts easily removable?

Chewie, both of those are GREAT updates.  I really like Shundi.  I haven't been able to find the time to get to all the photonovels so this Character is brand new to me.  I really really like him.  Can you include the recipe.

Bait is very well detailed.  Your "over"painting on the clone armor is very good.  I need to take a page from you and learn how you add the great weathering details.

Finished up a Galatic Marine, its my first try at this one.  I had to mix up a custom pot of Maroon paint - got some help from my wife (keep in mind I'm colorblind).  He was fun to make but much harder than I expected.  This was my first attempt at leg swaps.  He's destined to join someone else's collection to help me pay for my Saga 2 figures.

The recipe is pretty simple (and I'm sure easily recognized):
Clone Commander Body and Kama
Saga 2 Snowtrooper Helmet and legs.
Shoulder "Pads" cut from the pauldron of the AT-TE gunner

I also did a little bit of work on one of my entries for the group project - Voolvif Man.  Obviously he's still a work in progress.

Here is a very incremental update on my Voolvif (Wolfman Jedi).  I added some paint and attached the clone armor to the legs.  I've been looking at ways to modify the hands.  However, I think the hands actually look okay in person - the depth of field in the photos make them look bigger.  I've got to add the gray to clone armor pieces and add some touch up paint to the legs, feet, and head.
