Don't forget about the April's Fools day challange. Here are some great ones done for a casting call over at FFURG to get you in the mood.

How about a character we havn't seen given much play recently like Admiral Daala, Guri or Mara Jade? Maybe the Solo twins or Yuuzhan Vong from NJO?

That's exactly it Chewie. One is very strick and specific (group project) while the other is very broad but within a theme (customizing challange).

I havn't really thought about a group project for April. I'm open for suggestions. I have time to do both but I think the majority of the time I have will be dedicated to casting the twins and Scorch for the Microman custom.

Yah, and it will stop the joint too.

Sounds great. Let your collection expand into his room. Then your wife can't say there is no more room for new things.

Thanks guys for the comments. :D

Great to have you around jedi Ben! Thanks for the offer. I'm sure someone will take you up on it.

Tamyia rocks. The nice thing about Micromen is that you can take them almost completely apart and paint each joint separately. I found once the paint is dry, it doesn't chip with this plastic. The only suggestion is don't make the paint too thick or the joints will be too tight.

Cool! It's like the vintage version of swash-buckeling Rykrof! I love it!

This was a great group project guys. We only have four more days so get crack'n!

Phurby, Nice Shadow trooper.  I'm wondering if you repainted your son's Stormtrooper  ;)  Just kidding of course.

The attention to detail is very good on this one.

Nay, my son wouldn't let me. I painted my figure as he painted his. After I took the picture, he grabbed his figure and I havn't seen it since. That stormtrooper is probably going to help gi joe take down the evil C.A.T.S. out in the back yard.

It was a good learning experience for him. He learned about mixing colors and how you get orange from red and yellow. Thanks for the idea. It was nice to do a little art project with him. He though your son's was really cool.

I didn't know there were Bablyon 5 figures. Wait? You sculpted those? Wow. What a great idea for a custom alien. That first one with the mon mothma body looks great! Great paint job on the head.

Wow great stuff Chewie.

Rykrof: Good change up on his clothes there.

Wookiee: That was really brings out the fur. I like his eyes and the new brades. The brades almost look like rubberbands.

Clone Sniper: I wonder how the head wrap thing helps the snipper. It does give him a desert feel though and just makes him cool looking.

Nute Gunray: Old Nute sure has gaudy taste in clothes. When will the frog learn? The colors and clothes are very appropiate to the character.

Hod the blind Amill:  This one made me go WOW! That head looks great on the body. It looks production like it was ment to work that way. He kind of reminds me of those mystics from the Dark Crystal.

Thanks Chewie. No spray paint here. I painted the body glove first, then the black armor. No Hasbro painting for me.

This is my version of the upcoming Shadow Stormtrooper exclusive. He is based on the back of the card picture of the Shadow Stormtrooper. I liked it because they used a blue body glove instead of just spray painting a stromtrooper black and adding some white highlight to the helmet like the one we are really getting. Sorry about brightness of the picture. It's next to impossible for me to photograph a shiny black figure and not lose detail in the reflections.
