Here is the head I've choosen for Isard. This is a POTC Elizabeth Swan head. The skin color matches the head fairly well. Of course, I'll cut the hat off and redo the top of the head. Then I'll color it black and white like the reference. There is still work to do be done on the body. The suit below the arms needs to be cut. Then more detail work on the costume. Lots to do still.

That is cool seeing the same basic ship used in two different universes. They look so different that its hard to see what was kept between them. Have you considered putting lights and sounds in these ships?

Agreed this is way bizaar. Are they suppost to be dead or just with battle damage? I like the Mace with the neck tie to best.

My eyes hurt from looking at the blurry pictures but I can tell these are very solid customs. The wookiee jedi is my favorite. I'd suggest cutting off the jedi boots on the wookiee and replacing them with wookiee feet. Maybe even replace the legs with Chewie's legs.  (not our Chewie's legs but the figure's legs) Then you could use some thin sculpty to craft pants. Of course, wookiees don't wear pants, so you might be able to get away with it. Good stuff Tinman!

What a great looking figure Esther. The color of the softgoods matches the rest of the figure really well. I can't see but did you include the imperial ranking? A little more white on the hair would be perfect.

For mine, I'm trying to figure out how to put a piece of balloon around the groin in order to hide the leg joints. I'm thinking of cutting a piece to length. Then wrapping it around and connecting it between the legs. I hope there won't be too much of a seam that way. Any ideas? This should be fairly simular to working with cloth except it stretches.

They run about $6.50 a piece. I get them off ebay from Zira28 in Japan. They get here typically in about three days.

Here are my work in progress pictures for Ysanna Isard. She is not in her imperial outfit but in that sexy commando outfit. As you can see for the torso, I'm using a green waterballoon. I cut both the top and bottom on the balloon and stretched it over the body. I used a tiny dot of krazy glue to hold in in place below the neck and groin. The excess latex was cutoff and the back seam is glued in place. This hides the joints on the torso but still allows for complete movement.

For the legs, I used just the neck of the balloon cut off at both ends. Then I secured it and stretched it to fit. The arms could be covered with a balloon that clowns use for making balloon animals. Its just the right size to fit over the arms and be snug.

This technique is great if your going to make any Marvel Superheros using the Microman body. All of the detail of the body shows thru the balloon and its skin tight.

(and you'll notice that the image Phruby linked from RS is originally from this site but RS cropped off the watermark so they could use it...  :P)

How very 'Wise' of them. :-\

Star Wars Action Figures / New bounty hunter ideas
« on: May 12, 2006, 09:54 AM »
I came across this picture for the new darth vader game. It's got some interesting looking bounty hunters. That droid looks like he could be done with a Overkill and a grevious head. Interesting looking female bounty hunter there too. What are your ideas on parts for these?

That's just fodder? Not your actually collection? OMG! :o And I thought I was bad.

As you guys can see, I need to get rid of some stuff. I'd even take cash if there isn't anything to trade. People keep giving me loose figures (which I very much appreciate) but its becoming hard to use it all since I can cast whatever part I need now. I just need some kind of long hair girl for this GP.

I need a Agent Courtney Krieger head. I'll take the whole body too if available. I have this as trades.

My microladies have showed up. For Isard, I'm planning on using a flesh colored Microlady with a large size chest. The thing that is special about this is that I will be using dark green colored balloons for clothing. Since she is sleavless in my reference picture, the balloons will only cover part of her legs and torso. I got the idea for this from peanut butter over at CC. I'll post a work in progress picture tonight.

Also does someone have an extra Agent Courtney Krieger head? My son's friend stole the one I was going to use for this project?

Ya know that looks exactly like this guy that works down the hall from me. I'll have to send him the picture. I like the mix of the joe parts. Its gives him a nice neutral pose. You need to add the range finder to the helmet. I wonder if there is an easy way to shave off the wookiee brades and not damage the armor?

Now that is a fantastic Batman! You really took something that was not very good and made it extordinary. Very highly detailed and a great way to go out. Now you will have to be our Batman.
