Hey, thats a good idea. He looks really cool with the ribbon around his eyes. Do you have the concept reference art? I like to see how close you got. Good use of parts there. The torso reminds me of the motor-cross qui-gon we got during the potj series.
Think of Microman customs as a kind of style. Kind of like making star wars figures out of Stikfas or Kubrick. They are not made for realism, just for ultimate actuation. However, I think you would love the jedi that I'm working on next. He will have all of his joints covered in softgoods.
I mixed up a shade of bluish gray that I think is really close to the head color. Now show looks topless while wearing light blue pants. This is only a first cote so it needs some touch ups but all the joints are painted and the color doesn't scratch off. I have some army camoflague fabric to use for the shirt.
Thanks. The microlady neck post is just a ball and a stick. I cut off the stick and glued the ball to the buttom of the Leia head. The ball then goes back in its slot on the upper part of the body. I hide the connection with the chain.
See it goes to prove that the bail organa body isn't completely worthless. We've as a group found many different ways to use this body.
Findswoman, I really like these. I think these are better than the ones that were at ffurg a few months ago. The ribbon is in scale and they look great with their dates. It would be even better if they had little medals on the sashes or shirts.
I've made JD my base of operations. Then I typically post at either CommandoCustoms (because I like the gi joe and microman sections) and FFURG (because it is where star wars customizing started and we need to support the site as a storehouse of our collective knowledge)
I typically stay away from forums with a small posting rate and I wouldn't touch Rebelscum with a ten foot poll. Too many kids there and other political crap. Besides how many times do I need to see the 1000th version of a 501st clone trooper?
The hard part is finding a new audiance of customiers that are active in their forum. Sometimes, I feel like I'm showing the same people the same custom figure over and over again.
