Cool custom CHEWIE!  He turned out really cool.  I'm not too fond of the gloved hands, but that's just my personal preference.  Ash Solo, eh?  ;)

I like Master_Phruby's idea of a star-wars chainsaw hand  8)

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.

Hi y'all... figured since I delurked on Rebelscum, I might as well come out into the open over here also.

I agree the figure needs to have some jet black boots or perhaps some dark brown ones; just something to make a more noticable difference. As for a chainsaw hand; if you recall, Lak Sirvak(?) came with some thing that looks very much like a chainsaw and it fit over his arm. Perhaps that could be modified??

The basic Han body is one of those that lends itself very well to various customs. I like the ones were you can take the vest off. I've used one of his vest on some other figure I made and it looked nice.

Welcome JediSpyke!  ;D
Do you have a picture of that Lak Sivrak (or whatever he's called) chainsaw thing?
Another idea for a chainsaw would be the chainsaw that came with the Stikfas Firefighter action figure kit.  I'll try to dig mine up to see how compatible it would be...

Chainsaw... that chainsaw... I think a Chainsaber would be cool.   :D

I probably won't make him a chainsaw or anything, he's just supposed to be a regular smuggler. 

As for the gloves, I thought it added a different touch, and made it look a bit different from a Han.

 :P

Chainsaber, eh?  :::Drool:::  :P
The gloves look good, they just didn't do it for me.  Still, it's an awesome custom CHEWIE  ;D

Hey, thats not a bad idea for a chainsaber. It would basically be a blade that is reflected back at a different position on the handle.

Anyway, my smuggler Mira is finished. Here is the picture.



I left a few details off of her since this thread is more about imagination than accuracy. I just didn't feel like spending more money for those extra pieces.

Cool, she turned out great.  I really like the Jango gauntlet, it adds a nice touch.

She looks great phruby! :) Her belt should be brown, and f I remeber correctly the undershirt should be more of a green color.

 Do you have any other KOTOR2 figures? :)

Hows this for a Sith Lord?  It's not mine even though I will eventually make one just like it.  ;D

Phruby, I love your Mira figure!  She turned out great.  That's a great use of parts, and the thing that really sets it apart for me is the gauntlet.  Even though it's a GI Joe body is still has the Star Wars feel to it.  If you have any pics of her with a lightsaber, that would be cool.  Or even a group shot of your KOTOR stuff.

The Sith Lord is freaking scary!  I almost jumped out of my chair and hid behind the couch when I saw it!   :o

 :P

Thanks Chewie. I'll take a group shot and give her a lightsaber. Where is everybody else's figures?

Me?  Ummmmm.... oops.  I actually never considered entering for these, not sure why.  Maybe I'll catch up on the next month's customs  ;)
