I have no idea. I don't even have the comic book. It just looked like an interesting custom figure.

Somebody need to make Pink Five.

Thanks guys. I made her in order to get rid of some left over body parts. She is made up of potf2 Ewok Leia head, potf2 hoth leia body, saga Padme pilot arms and potj death star escape han solo jacket. She is to scale as far as the hoth leia body is. I just added the yellow strip on the side of her legs. I didn't use masking tape on the yellow strip because of the wrinkles in the pant legs. Her outfit is purple but the flash seems to make it look more bluish. She is based on the below reference picture. Refreash your browser to see the changes.

I didn't have a Leia head that had pony tail so I went with the straight hair instead. I also couldn't find my ribbon from my gi joe jinks. If I had those two things it would have been a lot closer to the reference. The point of the project however was not to buy new parts but use what I have on hand. I will be doing a lot more figures done in the "Chewie-style" of mixing and matching body parts just to reduce fodder. I have three huge bags of body parts to get rid of this year.   :o

OMG! It looks like Frankenfurter from Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Thanks guys for the comments. She does shine a little because she was finished pretty late at night. I havn't applied the dull cote to the figure. The outfit she is wearing is actually purple. It just didn't photograph very well. I'll have to take another picture after a few layers of dull cote is applied.

I can't wait that long Chewie. :P

While you are all out partying and getting dunk, I've finished my last custom for the year. This is Leia Solo based loosely on a Dark Horse Empire comic cover. Happy New Year everyone! ;D

I don't think you will get things thrown at you over here about the CSOTC. It's not like RS. I want to join the CSOTC.  ;D

For next year, I have a new Leia in a different costume. There will be vintage Mulla and Lumpy. My son's friend wants me to paint up a Boba Fett in some new colors. There will be a female rogue and a Corran Horn with Whistler. That should get me thru January.

Another group project would be fun too.

Welcome aboard. Did those red and blue clones start out painted red and blue or did you start from scratch? Nice Fox.

That's kind of the point of these. It's a way to get everybody to try something they would have never tried before. I can't wait to see the final product from you guys. Chewie, don't dirty the girls up. Unless they just entered a mud wrestling contest. ;)

I've got thank you and Greg for your support on these group projects. Its because of you two that these things are more than just my personal work in progress threads.

There is nothing to be embarassed about. They look just like the sisters. Its the incrediable amount of work you did on the hair to get those results that I'm impressed with. I personally like the green color even though to be accurate it should be darker. I think I just like that color green.

But where is the fun in that?

Just updating my customs thread with the rebel I made for the customizing challange.

He is done with old school episode I parts. He is made from a quigon head, Ki-adi-mundi arms and naboo royal security body and legs.

A nice set of clones there. I like the weathering and paint apps on the galatic marines. The only thing I don't like about them is the fabric used. The fabric in that scale looks too course and holie. A finer fabric would have seemed more in scale to me. I think it needs to be trimmed a little. Over all very well done figures.

As for the 501st SA/w removable helmets, I think the Evo clone came out the best. The letter A on his chest seems to be the most accurate. I like how the A splits at the end. It's funny how when making the same figure three times we get completely different looking figures.
