Star Wars Action Figures / Re: New Customs by the Findswoman

The links worked over at ffurg a few minutes ago. I guess bandwidth got exceeded again. Anyway, I saw King Ebareebaveebeedee of the Squib. You did a fantastic job sculpting the head for this guy. He looks like you had alot of fun making him.

Padmé Amidala in her lavender nightgown is the kind of figure that I love to see from you. She's beautiful and well crafted.

I didn't see Telfien or Snagg yet but will comment when the link works again. I did the the ghost Padme. She looks very creepy and I love the way she is screaming. There is a ghost that should be haunting Vader for a long time.

Jedi in clone gear is ok as long as that jedi wore that outfit in the tv series. 12" is always ok. Technically, you should be making the item during the group project and not something already made. Work in progress pictures are highly encouraged.

I know I'm making a snowbunny Padme. I have the body in mind for it. I saw it at Target a few days ago. It's one of those justice league three packs. This one comes with black canary. If I remove her hair and resculpt it to a hood I think it might work.

What would work great would be a Poison Ivy or Catwoman as a base. In fact, I can see some of the male superheros working great for a new Anakin with blue circuits on his chest.

It's basically just a head swap with a new paint job. I used the original battle armor head on my jedi commander a few years ago. This is just a way to reduce my part supplies.

Customs Community and Group Projects / Re: Special project question

That's a neat idea. I want to play. How about a traveling Yoda?

Don't worry Jeff, this will be the only non star wars custom I'm posting here. Future joes will be over at commando customs where they belong.

I'm glad you guys like him. I didn't intent him to have jango fett colors. It just worked out that way.

By no alternative costumes, I mean no costumes that did not appear in the cartoon series. You can make a modern version of the costume but not something we can't reference in the show.

By no clones I mean no ARC troopers and no clones of any kind. Not even if they are standing in the background of your picture. You can make a jedi in clone armor as long as he was in the show in that armor. Basically, there needs to be a reference for all customs made. 

This is not a contest. There is no judging or voting. Its a way to get everybody to together on a specific theme or character. The idea of the group project is we post work in progress pictures as we work on them. We offer suggestions and ideas on fodder. Group projects have been going on semi-monthly since 2004 at RS, FFURG and here. You can make as many figures as you want.  At the end, they will get posted over at FFURG in the group project casting call. You can see previous entries here.

They are occuring simulatnously. Typically most group projects focus on one specific character. (ie. Biggs Darklighter, Mon Calamari dancer). This time we are opening it up to any character (except clones) in the cartoon series because the other customizing challenge is doing playsets.

That's going to be a very cool figure. Is the outfit going to be softgoods?

Since the monthly customizing challange is focusing on playsets this month and next, it was suggested we extend the group project to any character that appeared in the Clone Wars TV series. Since we've seen so many clones, lets try to avoid doing them and focus on other characters that havn't been done to death. There are some cool customs in the creatures that Ventress had to fight in the arena or some of the aliens in the crowd sequence where Anakin tracks down Padme. Maybe those weird looking tribal aliens from vol 2. A kick as Durge would be cool or his IG lancer droids.

You can make modern, vintage or cartoon versions of any character that appeared in the miniseries except clones. No alternate costumes this time around. The two main ones suggested are Snowbunny Padme and Yoda.

The deadline for this is February 28th.

Well, since the monthly customizing challange is focused on playsets this month I guess we can fill the character hole with an all out Clone Wars cartoon series group project. I'll make an offical thread for this.

I don't know if posting this is against the rules or not but I'll give it a try. This is my first GI Joe custom. This is of course, Cobra Commander in this battle armor. I gave him a new color scheme that reminds me of Jango Fett. I guess from a certain point of view its star wars related. Kind of.

Exactly. Its good to see the return of some jedi customs. Very fun.

Very nice Quinlan. Are those black shoelaces for hair? Good idea.

I like! I really like that! What do you use to hold the armor pieces as you drill them out?
