Arn't all Gungans aligned to the dark side?
 ;)

Basically this one was made from some parts I had stashed away. I'm going to try to make some customs like you do Chewie. Nothing based on EU or references. Just stuff from the parts I have around and my imagination.

Great Sith Master_Phruby!   ;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.

Well, here's my late submission for the Smuggler Challenge: Balosar Spacer/Smuggler  Fenn Sleazebaggano. He's a relative of Elan Sleazebaggano, the low-life at the Outlnader club who tried to sell Obi-Wan some deathsticks. Incidentally, Fenn is Elan's Drug smuggler, among other odd jobs.

Haha, that's great!  I like the backstory. 
I think you should try giving the body a paintjob to distinguish him some more from regular clone pilots though.l

Wonderul!  Glad to see another submission, and the Clone body works very well for him.  Good backstory too!

 Thanks for the comments guys! I was actually thinking of painting his white body armour and gloves and moonboots, but I wasn't too sure what colour. Any suggestions?

Hmmm... I think that a dark color to offset it against the jumpsuit would look cool.  Maybe even black would look good?

Cool smuggler ThePerennial. I think Chewie is right. Making the suit black would really add to the quality of the figure. The hair kind of reminds me of those anime kids you see in video games. What if you made the hair blue or green in that spirit?

I agree with CHEWIE on the darker colors and I like Master_Phruby's idea of some crazy coloring for the hair. 

I received my Smuggler custom fodder yesterday and made my smuggler today (I'm stuck home today waiting for the phone technician ::)) so whenever my internet is back up, I'll post some pics ;D

I was thinking of making it black, but it would look exactly like a mandalorian custom I'm making (Ghez Hokan from the Republic commando novel. He's got a tan jumpsuit and gunmetal black body armour) and in the end it would bug me. Maybe if I tinted the black with another colour it wouldn't bother me as much. Or perhaps I can paint it a flat black and drybrush over it with silver. How do you guys feel about that?


Also, I was thinking of giving Fenn's hair a grey drybrush, but when I read your post, Gergorbian; I felt as if a dark blue drybrushing would work well.

I know I'm really late and that we're doing a Sith now (I have an idea for that guy), but here's my Smuggler:

I love that! It's one of the most creative uses for Dengar. I'm tired of him being used to "Fat AT-AT driver" customs. It's refreshing to see him used like that!

Thanks man, after getting the Saga Dengar, I knew I had to do some sort of custom with him and this Smuggler Challenge was the perfect opportunity.  He's actually one of my favorite customs so far...

I guess now I have use for this guy. He is a Ex con/ bounty hunter/ smuggler. His name is Aruala (a-roo-la) also my daughters name backwards lol. I used a clone #41 body and a clone commander head hands and helmet o yeh and a shaved down skirt cause the clone 41's are to fat. I thought he seemed like a smuggler type so here is my entry. If I cant enter him I understand its just my first custom ship and 3rd figure custom.




An prisoner who escaped the same time Jango Fett broke out of a prison colony. The prison colony had on loan 10 Imperial ships. With two stolen, the rest of the ships on loan were destroyed by Boba Fett as he flew away from the prison colony.
Aruala Gave his new ship the title the Slave-C.
