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

Yeah, making pictures with flash often hides neat details and colour from the eye to see. Still, that Sandcrawler droid does look cool, despite of the flash! And Col. Yularen looks very nice as well. He's the guy at the round table on the first Death Star right?

I looked at all your latest customs and I agree with everyone else: outstanding work  ;D!

But it would be easier to post them all in one thread and update that one from time to time  :).

I can't quite place all the different parts you used for your female customs. Something tells me it's not all SW fodder right? I would love to see some recipes on those.

....  :o (I'm speechless in a very very very positive way  ;D)

Yup, excellent work on that new kama design, Paul! I shared more detailed thoughts on GalacticArchives  :D

Congrats JediDre! Prepare to be amazed. I have an 11 month old daughter myself and let me tell ya, fatherhood is everything it's cracked up to be  ;D

Whoa, very nice indeed! And welcome to JD  ;D

Only little thing that I noticed was the left air filter (if that's what it is?) of the trooper that holds the binoculars. It seems to be 'hanging' a bit too low...

Really good paint work there, Monstermonkey! My favourite of this bunch has to be Yak Face. What fresh and vintage like colours! Painting his facial hair white really makes him complete. Very good.

I think you can find it at any household store or supermarket. Like I said, I used one of those strips which you use for tying up a garbage bag. They're metal, but have a plastic covering for safety.

Great Bulq, JediStyle. Paint apps look very good! I remember Sora having a darker skin tone in the comics, though, but I'm not 100% sure. Add the fact that I'm partially colourblind, I shouldn't be talking about colours at all  ;)

I'm very curious whose arms you used, though. They might work for my Kass Tod figure...
