Wow! Now I know why it took you over three hours to do the hair. That's some impressive results. I think you will be able to get away with just painting the neck collar. I had to cover up some detail while you don't need to do that. The collar piece should look like part of the body glove anyway. 

That thread works well Chewie. It's not too thick. It does take forever to get the hair correct. I've found it helps to have just taken night time cold medicine before adding the hair. That is what I did with the blue one. I think it came out better than the green one when I wasn't dozy.

As for the thread, I just randomly picked out some black thread that was in my wife's sewing cabinet. Are you going to paint on the neck piece or sculpt it? It's pretty much just a flat piece of sculpty then cut to shape on the figure with a exacto knife. How did you do the hair? Did you just cut pieces of thread and glue them on individually?

Yah, that is cool. It's very Pirates of the Carribean feeling. Good use of softgoods. I think that's the best dead body you've ever made.

I've finished putting the hair on my sisters. The way I did this was to wrap some thread around my two of my fingers about ten times. Then I would brush on some krazy glue on the head and press the wrapped thread on to a small section of the head. I repeated this three times to cover the head. Then I cut the loops on each side and trimmed the hair so it didn't look messy. Finally, I brushed on some krazy glue to the top of the head and started wrapping the top of the head with the thread. I think they came out pretty well.

The "Skirmish in the Senate" pack comes with a senate pod. Now all I need is about a thousand of these for a nice size diorama.

Another great custom Fritzkrieg. Your starting to turn these things out as fast as Chewie does. My question is why do all smugglers dress the same? Is there some regulation in the smuggler's guild that everyone has to wear a vest? I see this figure as being a great base for a high quality han solo custom. Just change the shirt color and add a solo head and you have it.

Yah, they are coming out better than I thought. I should have made that neck piece a little shorter. Let's get on the ball guys and see some work in progress pictures. We only have until the end of the year.

Wow! That armor is really beat up. Very gruesome. I agree with adding some blaster marks. Some dried blood would be good too. I guess dried blood would be kind of brownish. Maybe a splatter near the head? You never see anything like that in the star wars universe.

I like the use of the two different body pieces. It makes for deluxe looking anakin. You just need to paint the chest area to match the head. Maybe you can give him a blue undershirt so you won't have to match skin color.

I really like that first jedi. The double blade lightsaber and cloak are fanastic! The choice of colors is well done. I like how you made the edges look older by using a different color.

The second is good but I don't like that face. The expression is too dazed and somber looking. Otherwise, I like the unique helmet you used. It like a jedi training helmet.

I added the black areas on their wrists and colars. I used black eletrical tape for their garders and belts. The buckel is of course sculpty.

Here are the initial cotes of color.

It's good to know that starkid has the basics down.
