The 2nd picture of Luke (that's who he's supposed to be right?) does look better. It's easier now to see more details.

The Mandolorian is a bit difficult to see clearly. I see you've painted the cheeks of the helmet white. Nice touch. Reminds me of the old Marvel comics.

Perhaps you can enlighten us with what parts you used and how you went about making these? A bit of info how you came up with the various ideas would be nice to read as well  :)

DN, your armoured troopers look like the ones who saw some real action, as opposed to the crispy white troopers we saw in the movies. Very tough looking fellas!

Sonther looks nice as well, but he's a bit too recognizable as Han...

This is just amazing! It has to be like looking in a mirror for K'Krukh!

Damn, it's been too long a period of non-customizing! All because of the heatwave of July here in Holland, which made working on the attic (my workspace) unbearable. But now that August is trying hard to be the wettest month of the year, I'm back at it.

I've been working hard on my Kass Todd figure, a hawt Zabrak Padawan from the Clone Wars/Republic comics. Her looks are based on her appearances in the Battle of Jabiim.

I chose POTF Slave Leia's head, because I like the angry look on it. Here are some pics of it with two pairs of Zabrak horns added.

Here are some reference pics I scanned from the Clone Wars TPB Last Stand on Jabiim:

Here are some wip pics of the rough assembly of the figure. Kass' hair is quite long (there's a tiny shot of her back in the comics), but not as long as you see now. I'll trim that later. I used Fritzkrieg's excellent tutorial to attaching ball jointed limbs on peg based bodies. Worked like a charm! Thanks man!
Although the shoulders look a bit bulky, that will be covered up with the leather vest Kass will be wearing. As always, let me know what you think of it so far!

.... calling those figures 'production errors' no doubt  ;)

Damn! Couldn't agree more! These guys look bad ass all the way!

Mini-rigs rule! Although I did sell most of them a couple of months ago, I still have my first ever SW vehicle: the CAP-2. It's been in my possesion for more than 22 years now.

The ones I sold were: AST-5, Desert Sail Skiff, Maintenance Energizer, 2 Tri-pod cannons, 3 Radar cannons, although I don't think the last three items are genuine mini-rigs.

Who cares, they were great fun to have and I've got great childhood memories of them!

Wow, great collection and they all still look so great! Too bad you have to sell them. Hope you'll get a great price for this fine collection!

Whoa. Plain awesome  8)! I have the Art of ESB book. It's in there as well, along with other cool concept drawings.

What parts and materals did you use to make this one?

Wow, great stuff! I had huge problems with version 3 of my Galactic Marine. This is ideal to solve that problem!

Zoids eh? Aren't those cyborg dinosaurs with wind-up engines? I had some when I was a kid.

I think other rubber material could work as well. We have these 0.5 liter beer bottles with a special cap, sealed off with a custom fit rubber cap. Might work great.

Or some rubber from an old bicycle tyre (inner or outer).

Cool transition trooper there, Sentinel! Its simplicity makes it even cooler! Perhaps you can make more, with various stages of sand 'dirtification'

My g/f actually likes it that I have this hobby, which in all honesty is still only a couple of months old. What amazes her most is the small scale 3" figures are to work with. Especially when I go to such lengths as to make a D-ring and hook for a lightsaber hilt, haha! She also smiles when I tell her how I'm planning on making one figure out of "these legs and these arms and this head and bit of rubber band, yadayada".

My daughter is too young (11.5 months) to understand, but I think she will approve of my customs with an honest and genuine "duhduh"  ;)

My first custom figure is a Galactic Marine, which I made in March this year. I got tired of waiting for Hasbro to come up with one and thus entered the world o'customizing! I don't mind Hasbro making one now. Thank God they live up to their responsability!
I'll make an SA Bacara too, with removable helmet, despite the fact that I have 5 Bacaras.

I have ideas for Kass Tod, Tott Doneeta for instance, but wouldn't be 'offended' or something like that if Hasbro decides to make those in the future.

I guess the fun of making your own figures outweighs the Hasbro factor big time  ;D
