can we have multiple entries? Can we enter clones as long as we also enter a non-clone characters?
Since I'm new this forum, I kind of have the same question.   I assumed this wasn't so much a "constest" as more a motivation to get us to work on common themes/characters.  As such, I assume that would could have multiple entries (aka Bounty Hunters, Sith Lords, etc?) But like I said, I'm new and I don't know whats going on  :) :)

A little off topic, but is there an easy explanation on how to create the lightsaber effects with Photoshop?  I've been wanting to try that but I'm not sure where to start.

I've actually got a few ideas for this line.  I'm thinking about a IG-88 lancer, a Saesee tinn, and I'm still planning on a Padme snow bunny.  I recently finished a Clone Wars Republic Gunship that was sold to cover some SW collecting expenses.  Maybe I'll include that with my entry(ies).  I'm looking forward to my first Group Project!!!

I must admit, I'm a little confused on the dates for this group project.  Is this group project different than the other challenge thats running (Diorama challenge?).  If so are they occuring simultaneously? 

I really really liked the black battle droid.  Where did you get the armor for the Wookie Warriors.  I've got several of those figures that I want to customize.

. A frozen snow trooper would be cool.( hint , Hint) ;D

That would look great!

He looks maybe a tad bit too muscular.  You may want to consider black paint to match the hood.

I've also already started a snowbunny.  Although I was hoping to sell it on eBay to cover some of my recent expenses (its a pain to have to buy your fodder).  I hope I can make mine look half as good as the one that Owen made.

Brent, I'm pretty sure the last couple pics of him standing are just for fun.



I figured this, I was just trying to have a little fun  ;)

Very Cool.  One question, that last photo of stormie (with his helmet half blown off).  How did he survive that injury and remain standing  ;)

WOW, those version 2 Micromen look awesome.  Really really great.  I love the posability that they get.  I always felt like the first bike scout looked a little "thin"  these guys are filled out nicely!  Keep up the great work.

So, what's your "secret special superglue"?  I haven't settled on a good brand yet.  I recall having the most sucess with something made by Koss (I think?)  but I can't find it anywhere anymore.

I appreciate all the dremel advice in this thread.  I've only dremelled a little bit this year and each time I think I'm going to grind my fingers to a pulp  :)

I seem to recall popping the harness off without boiling it...  I think I may have popped one arm off, but it wasn't too hard really.  I know I was just careful in doing so, and didn't damage the figure at all.  I wanted it for just seeing how it would maybe look on a Stormtrooper for something.  Looked good.
I've gotten them off by popping off one arm and the sliding it over the neck post.

I love the SA Qui-Gon.  I'm definitely going to try one of those.  I bought 5 Obi Pilots today on clearance - sweet.

I saw one of these at a Target today.  It was marked for $1.75.  I almost bought it but the lines were long and it wasn't one with a decent size figure (smaller body good guy)

This is the first in a series of newbie-like questions that I'm going to post. I've already introduced myself and some of my customs in another thread.  I'm very impressed by activity on this custom community.  So, I'd like to pick your brains in order to improve my skills.

So my question, how do you keep the paint from chipping around articulation joints (especially sholders, elbows, and knees)?  I've thought about trying to cut away the offending scraping pieces (sounds dangerous) and I've also tried (somewhat unsucessfully) using a Dull Coat varnish (Gamesworkshop Brand).  However, the varnish doesn't seem to protect those joints too well (especially if they are already very prone to scraping).

Any help is much appreciated!

As a post script.  For Newbie Question #2, would you prefer I add to this thread or start a new topic?

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: New Community Member - a few customs
« on: January 2, 2006, 07:50 PM »
I'm a fan of all your customs, save for the attempt at Vos. He looks bad to me, is all. I think you would have better results if you got a different head, and tried somthing that way. Maybe also sculpting the bands he has on his hands and hair as well. :)


I actually sold this Vos on eBay a while ago.  But I think you are right.  Thyere is something off about the head/hair.  I still like the choice of Agen Kolar but I needed to add some more hair to the front - like bangs or something.  I'm going to try this guy again sometime.  I was happy with the choice of the clone wars Anakin body but I should also add some "weathering" to him too so that he really looks like he was through the Wars.  Thanks for the honest criticism.
