Chewie brought in $12.01 so far! Great job Chewie!

Thanks guys. That is a bootleg kit from ebay. It had only a couple of small bubbles on it. Nice casting. I thought about making a modern version. I was thinking a Rancor Keeper for the body. Maybe get Glassman to make me a modern head.  Hmmm. ;D

Since I'll never own a real Vlix, here is my bootleg version.

Pigma Micron pens by Sakura are graphic art / drafting pens you can buy at any craft store. Basically they give a nice fine line when drawing on plastic. They are fantastic for drawing eyes and filling in tight spaces. I use them mostly for touch up work. They come in six colors and varing thickness. I use a .005 thickness for eyes. They are a little expensive at a couple of dollars a piece but worth it.

Here is a web link:

That's a pretty cool clone. I like all the copper cloth on him. Very crisp.

I can see what you mean about the eyes. If I did this one, I'd probably pass the figure on to someone else to paint the eyes. I would just mess it up. My favorite part of this custom is the cape. I like the little tassels and the flowingness of it. I wish the legs moved. They seem pretty solid. Otherwise, the shape of the body is right on the mark! Very cartoonish hot. Like Jessica Rabbit hot.

Some chewied up clones would work. The gorier the better.

I though about that. I wanted it to look like the box.

Yah, I keep bending it back in shape. It keeps returning to that direction.  :-\

Now look at this auction... are you kidding me?


It's better than Hasbro's but that isn't by any means a $50 figure, everthing is to silvery.

That was from a guy on RS. He got pissed off when people started to say it looked messy. He said, fine I'll sell it on ebay for profit. The jerk. >:(

Thanks Chewie. I tried to get as close as possible to the picture. I had to do three cotes of white to cover the green. Then I used a black pen to fill in the areas the white got into. Simple repaint.

It's always bothered me that the packaged clone for the AT-RT didn't look anything like the one on the package. So I took a carded AT-RT Driver and made him look like the one on the package. Here are the results.

Just make sure to put in a disclaimer that "Toy does not swim on its own."
