Yep, just something from your imagination.  Most of my customs are that way, kind of like the Ora Tella figure (with the Shaak Ti head).

Also, last month's submissions were fan fiction "Star Wars Hotties" -

Sorry my entry is a bit early but I'm going camping for a few days, so I figured I post it now, it is only 4 days from the end of the month, go ahead and slap me if I did something wrong.   :P

For my entry I made a Nikto Smuggler. I for got I had the Nikto parts and I had the other pieces lying around for awhile and I just never got around to using them. The parts consist of:
  • SAGA Nikto Jedi head and Hands
  • Ten Numb from pilot 3-pack upper and lower torso
  • EP1 Sneak Preview Mace legs
  • Heavily modified POTF2 Bib Fortuna arms, they were both shortened and his right arm is repositioned. It is isn't alot shorter the picture just got it at a funny angle

The backpack is removable, it is a POTF2 Sandtrooper with a pair of Sith binoculars, 2 Endor mines, a clone commader hanle thingy, some antenna that I'm not sure where it came from ::), an Obi-Wan pilot satellite dish, and part of a skiff guard pole.. The drybrushing isn't quite as bright or pronounced but the flash really brought it out, I think it looks better in person. So here it is hope you guys like it. ;D

That is one nice smuggler. I love how dry brushing brings things out; it's so cool!

Good job on that Nikto smuggler, he turned out nice  ;D
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

WOW!!!  Sith Lord Chaos, that is totally awesome.

You really outdid yourself on this one as far as I am concerned.  I simply love it and will probably copy it for myself.

You came up with a great use of parts that I've never seen anyone attempt.  The Ten Numb body is absolutely perfect for this and really makes him look like a figure made scratch built.  Doesn't look recognizable at all.

Great use of greeblies to come up with the backpack - it doesn't even look like a Sandtrooper pack at all now.

I still like your dancer from last month a little more, but that's just because I'm a pervert.  This is actually a superior figure in my opinion.

AWESOME JOB!!!

My smuggler is almost done. She got a new right arm with jango gauntlet. I'm going to have to smooth out the left arm to match. Now she needs painting. I would have had her finished sooner except I had a commission to finish. I'll post the commission tonight.

Sounds pretty sweet!  Mine has been complete for a few weeks, but I might throw together a second one tonight if I have time.

Ok. The black hole clone trooper is done. Now I'm working on our smuggler. Anyone know her name from KOTOR II?  I've added Jango's gauntlet in this picture. The arms are smoothed out with sculpty. Now I need to paint her up.

She is looking pretty good so far Phruby. I think her name is Mira, I don't think I ever used her in KOTOR, she wasn't too good, but she was a cool character.

Mine will be posted Thursday night.

Here's mine -



I made him almost a month ago.  Right after I finished him, Darth Delicious made an Ash Jedi, and kind of stole my thunder with the head I used.   ;)

Anyways, pretty simple custom.  I wanted a "Han Solo look" to him, so I used a VOTC Han body, the Ash head from the Army of Darkness line, and some gloves from a 21st Century XD German figure.  And did some repainting.  I think I'll repaint his boots a solid black.

 :P

Sweet!! AoD rules! :) Ash makes a perfect smuggler, I love it CHEWIE! I think the boots will look better solid, it will help seperate them from the pants. Do we get to see your second figure too? :)

Thanks SLC - I agree, the boots need to be a jet black or something.  I didn't get to finish my other smuggler yet, but will try to tonight, and get a pic or two up of him too.

Very cool chewie. He is nicely weathered and the Ash head works great! Bruce Campbel makes a great Han Solo. I wonder how he would look as Indiana Jones since Ford is looking really old. What might be cool is to give him a star wars-ish looking chainsaw for a hand.

Mine is finished. I'll post a picture tonight.
