Well, I bought your ingredients off eBay, Jedistyle! I expect them sometime next week. I bought two Colemans actually. I might have use for a second body for K'Krukh.

407
Oh wow!! You made K'krukh!! It's one of my to-do-figures, but a J'Quille is way too expensive for me. He looks awesome with that hat he stole from Rayden (Mortal Kombat) it seems.

What's your recipe for him (except for parts of J'Quille, that's pretty obvious  :) )?

The blue Commander shows you've got an extremely steady painting hand. Very, very precise.

Those mangos er.. mandos are pretty cool. I like the damaged helmet on the left one a lot.

That ARC really rocks! And what a great mini-diorama! And what I like about the Jedi and wolfface is, besides the excellent look, your use of so many various parts!

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Removing Factory Paint?

Why not buy some regular #41s and paint those?

Darth Talon eh? If you say Talon, I immediately think 'Karrde"  :). Making a red tattooed Twi'lek should prove to be a very challenging paint job!

411
Wow, so again a Skywalker derails, huh? Looks good D_E and great use of parts of various figures!

I too think Legacy will provide lots of ideas and characters. I mean, look at those ugly dudes (the Zabrak, Twi'lek and strange black big monster-man).

412
Wow! I too really like how Roron was portrayed in the CW cartoons and your custom is a perfect hommage to him! Oh, and thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm very anxious to try this one myself  :)

Like I said at TheJawa this addition to your RotE line looks very very nice!

Your attention to detail is stunning... again. Please don't tell me (actually, please do) that that head unit is removable? The holster looks smaller than the others you made. That's excellent work!

Let me guess: Tarkin body (I got 9 now   ;D), cast helmet, Ozzel hands (?) and head (modified)??

414
Coolness!!  8) A Bacara with removable helmet is on my to-do list as well. I like the head in particular. Which figure donated that? Not the AT-TE Gunner, because that one has more of a surprised look on his face. Are you gonna make a softgoods kama later on? That'd be really awesome.

It was pretty hard to find good pics of them, but here's one:



Actually,  the lollypop-man was black and had a Vader-esque helmet. I may make him sometime too.

Totally forgot my F-1 guy isn't complete yet. I have to give him a comm unit on his lower back and a wire in his helmet. Oops.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Collection Losses

I remember losing Yoda's cane back '85 or something  :-[. Apparently it got sucked in by the vacuum cleaner. My mom even turned the whole thing inside out, but the Lost Cane was never seen again...

And I lost some more vintage weapons, like both pikes of my two Royal Guards. They broke in two and glueing didn't work.

Thanks KF. Making the removable helmet feature was great to do! Too bad clones with heads (AT-TE Gunners, Evo Clones) are still quite expensive for me, but I'm confident prices will drop eventually.

I've seen your work as well. I visited your website when dealing with Jon from customcards.co.uk. I was totally blown away by your 'Buggs Bunny Fett' figure! Plus, your Mandolorians are excellent customs too!

Thanks for the nice comments Dimetrodon  :).

Indeed, the Snowtrooper's backpack is upside down, but the Galactic Marines' backpacks are very different from those. I don't have the material to cast parts, so I just decided to use what I had.

For future Marines I think I will use the backpack that came with POTJ Cold Weather Obi-Wan.

Might as well add my first ever custom as well: the Galactic Marine (with bulb-neck). I had tons of fun trying out this new hobby (because that's what it is now). I didn't really look for tips and clues, but the fellas at TheJawa helped me out big time with their advice.

I had the most fun in just figuring out how one thing would fit on another. What if I sanded some more of this part, or if I turned it upside down. You know, just go along the way.

I like the often used [username]'s customs idea for threads, so I renamed my earlier thread.

Here is my second custom figure (which came before that Marine I posted). Some members from theJawa already know the background story for this one, but I'll be glad to share it here also.

Apart from being a huge SW fan, I'm also highly interested in Formula One races. Last year during the Monaco GP (in May), George Lucas used that venue as part of his ROTS campaign. He made a deal with the Red Bull Racing Team to promote his film on their cars and crew. The crew were donned in Stormtrooper-like jumpsuits and their helmets were altered as well. An ideal project for me, being fan of both worlds.

So, here are the pics, as well as one with a visor-equiped helmet.
