Thanks guys. It's funny how many people think I sculpted it or put it together from other parts. Its fun to find figure fodder no one has seen before. I'm pleased with the way she came out.

Those are gi joe style acticulated hips. She can get into alot of funky positions. ;D I do worry about the paint coming off on her sholders when I move them. She has a cote of dull cote. It would have been easier to paint her in pieces, cote it and then assemble her.

Here is a figure I would like to make for the smuggler. She is of course from KOTOR 2.



I'm thinking a Zarana head with Bombstrike torso. Not sure about the legs though.

Yeah, it's begun.  Everyone can start on their figure, but we're not supposed to show it until the end of the month.

Wouldn't it be cool if people posted work in progress pictures of the smuggler here?

Yeah, it would be cool, except for two things in my opinion...

- I kind of like seeing the final result and being surprised

- I don't work to well with WIP figures... most of my customs take about 30 minutes or less, I guess I don't make complex ones like most of you guys.

But, majority rules.  If everyone wants to see WIP on this, then that's fine with me.  Mine is already done though.

Really now,do you think that's true? ::) :P

Does this have to be another chica? That's fine with me, but I've got lots of other ideas.

Yeah, I do think that's true.  I can't sculpt at all, and usually just do simple parts swaps and repaints while watching TV.

No, this one doesn't need to be a chica.   Mine's a dude.   ;)

Not sure about the legs though.

I'd try one of the Baroness figure's legs.

Damn. That's the one I was going to make, Phruby.  :(

I'll figure something else out, though...I don't want us to be working on the same one, that's no fun. Besides, I think I'll save her for when we get around to a "Bounty Hunter" challenge.  :P

I'm looking forward to seeing your version, though! And I love the vintage style Twi'lek, she looks really keen. Quite original.

Thanks DD. What parts would you use for her? I was going to stay straight gi joe on this one but what would you suggest?


I might be able to use the entire Zarrana body except the arms. The Baroness would work for arms.
