Here is my version of Commander Neo. Thanks to Bantha5 for the kit. I finally got around to making him.

For some reason my wife likes to tell me I'm obsessed with star wars figures when we're in bed and I'm about to fall sleep. This is when she will tell me I'm spending too much on star wars and we are running out of space. It's true we are running out space but I actually spending about on average about $30 a month. She tries to make me promise to never buy any more figures just so I can go to sleep.

She does however like my custom figures and encourages me on their creation. She actually picks up paints and brushes for me but never wants to pick up parts. She's thinks its a better hobby than watching and talking about sports all day.

Since ep3 is over now, I think my collecting will have a large decrease in what I pick up. However, I think customizing will increase. I'll pick up the occasional 'never made before' alien but not the six thousandth Vader. Instead, I'm going to concentrate on EU and never made characters. I think the custom figures are going to start taking over the home office and the official stuff will be packed away.

At least, that's the plan. It may change tomorrow. ;)


Bantha5's vintage Gargan went for $137.04! I'm sure he didn't sell it at that price originally.

I think the best idea is to dye the rotj luke cape. It would fit the best with the character. I'd probably not use a ep1 maul head. It's too detailed for vintage stuff. I saw one where someone used a gi joe RoadBlock for a head, painted it black and added little horns. It had a nice vintage feel to it.

What head did you use for the Centilos? That's a cool bug head. I think you need to get rid of the human boots. It takes away from the bug look. Maybe use a genosian legs?

TAABTOO - Very nice use of the the head with that luke body. He looks like he's just been to the local pod races.

Help me Dr. Zaius!

That's very cool kit. Is that originally a Homer?

What's wrong with me.
I think your crazy.
I want a second opinion.
Your also lazy!

I kind of thought the cobra head was a little small for the body. It's a great idea and I think it would better in black with a red visor.

Thanks Greg. The pupil-less eyes was Chewie's idea. I was going to leave them alone because the yoda I used had these cool sith eyes. After seeing Chewie's wookiee, it just seemed the natural thing to do.

I really like this pilot. I think he bridges the gap between clone pilot and ATAT driver much better.  It would have been alot more interesting than the one we got. How about a black fighter pilot version?

That's much better than the first version Ryan. I love the dry brushing. Very Chewie-like.

Are you saying our esteemed wookiee is the love child of Richard and Gene Simmons? :o

You got to remember that Chewie has a rather large "Gene Simmons"-like tongue. It's so big that he can't get it back in his mouth. That is why he uses the  raspberry smiley. It's also the reason the chicks love him. :o

Thanks Ron. I kind of like how I put the cuts in his ears.

Yoda only too 30 minutes also. I was really hoping my dancer would be done. Oh well, I needed something for the challange. Long drawn out customs are still my favorite. 

Thanks Chewie. My other figure isn't done yet. I still need feathers.  Yoda I painted up as I was watching Nightmare on Elm Street and waiting for trick or treaters.
