Shells.... now that's very creative. Wow, that would really lift Tarful to unreachable heights!!

If Hasbro's version is as good as Owen's or Incom's Galactic Marine, I'll be sure to buy a few!

Thanks for the praise D_N, but I'm still a bit down because of the total and utter inaccuracy my Marines have, compared to the 3D Sith Snapshot  :(

Yes Incom, that was me in THIS POST.  I'd like to get SOME recognition for that one. ;D

The senate recognizes Nicklab, a.k.a. Nick@thejawa, a.k.a. 'someone'!!   ;)

About that 2-pack Evo idea, I think it's kinda cool, but a lot of us would be stuck with TONS of extra snowtroopers! ;)

No problem, there's no such thing as too many Snowtroopers. Too many puppies, yes, but too many Snowtroopers... no.

Over at TheJawa someone suggested making two packs. Something like 2/3 evolutions. So it'd be a white clone/ST, BARC Trooper/Biker Scout, Snowtrooper/Galactic Marine.

Of course, living in Holland, my luck will run out. I won't be able to buy them in time, have to resort on eBay, better wait 5 years till prices have dropped and then score some beat up near vintage Galactic Marines.... And I'm being optimistic  ;D

I'm with you though: Hasbro better not mess this one up, like they usually do so well. So no ' action features'  like blowing-in-the-wind face mask or a neat Bacara's rifle laser flash reflection kinda thing. No, full SA, softgoods and removable helmets please.  :)

Wow! I recently received some ROTS Wookiee Warriors and Yarua and thought they were big fellas. But Tarful.... holy $#&*! He's terrifyingly terrific!!

You might as well paint Gree, while you're at it. Doesn't matter what colour, any scheme is better than what Hasbro did with him.

You should have Tarful manhandle a Magnaguard and post a pic, just like in the Repbluc Commando game  ;D

Ya can't have enough bareness when it comes to ladies  ;D, except for Gardulla the Hutt, that is  :-\.

The Fe-Mando (perhaps make an anagram out of this for her name?) looks great! How did you go about making this figure?

That's nice to know D_E! But remember to use the Snowtrooper's armor instead of the Commander's. Here's why....

Nope, no trouble at all. The Clone Pilot has a waist with a belt cast onto it. It's one piece. I used my dremel to cut off that belt. The Clone Commander, as you probably know, has a smaller hip area where his kama/belt is located. I cut that off as well, just below the pelvis area. The Commander's pelvis is actually smaller then the Pilot's area, but the belt makes up for that. Reading this, it doesn't make sense to me, but I hope you get the picture.... a bit  ;D

Wow, what was the reason they put that 3D model up at the official site? A design for an action figure??

On the other hand, now I have to redesign my future custom Marines. Finally we get to see the chest armor, which indeed resembles more of the Snowtroopers' armor than that of the clones'. I bow my head to Sentinel at the Wampa's Cave in a very humble way.  :)

Thanks, Chewie!

I used the following parts:

Helmet, backpack: Saga Snowtrooper
Head: AT-TE Gunner
Torso, arms, belt, pauldron: Clone Commander
Waist, legs: Clone Pilot
Kama: made from a piece of an old blouse.

The bootstraps are those clear elastic bands that held ROTS Aayla in her package.

Well, I joined recently, might as well showcase my second Galactic Marine, which I finished last night.

Personally, I think I could've gotten around the pauldron a bit tidier. I'm exceptionally pleased with adding the head and with the kama on this one. I named this one 'Scar', because of the little slip of the exacto knife on his helmet, while removing the Snowtrooper's rim. And yes, a customizer was hurt in that process  ;). I also made a scar on the clone's face, above his left eye.



Let me know what you like and/or dislike? I'm planning on making more of these, and I believe each should be an improvement over the other  :)

This one isn't too bad is it?

This one isn't too bad, is it?

I believe I saw a WIP thread on this character over at GH. Right now, it appears GH is down or something....

Hi everybody!

Just registered here at JD after having read a lot of topics for the last couple of weeks, mostly in the customs area.

I'm a 32 y/o Dutch SW fanatic and have been since oh...... long before some of you were born (since late '83, actually  :)). I have a loving g/f and a beautiful 10 month old little girl. I work at an accountancy firm, play guitar, collect SW items like figures, GG statues/maquettes, da movies/cartoons, tpbs, novels, etc. My main goal is to complete the vintage line of figures (loose) in good/vg condition. A mini-focus is collecting vintage Snowtroopers and Royal Guards.

I also like to watch F-1 races, movies, listening to music (preferrably with guitars), attending concerts/festivals, hanging out with my friends.

I have been a long time member at the TF.N forums and joined TheJawa.com when I decided to make a custom figure. And now I'm hooked on that. I'm boiling and popping heads and arms and buying every colour of GW Citadel's line  ;D I'm also a (new) member at FFURG, Wampa's Cave and Galacticarchives, all because of the customizing scene.

I'm positive I'll have a great time here and will get things organized, so I can show my customs in a decent way!
