That jawa sith lord is funny! Great idea! I wonder how he would do in a fight with my gungan.

Hrmmmm, I'm sure half of the universe would be destroyed in their fight for dominance  ;)

Thanks CHEWIE, I love those Jawas so I figured it would be a fun custom to make.

Phruby - That looks like a great start!  Excellent use of parts, and she looks really evil.  What legs are those?

Those are from a figure named Lillth in the Darkstalkers line. I used her torso for my Winter figure a while ago. Now I'm finally using her legs. Still got some arms and wings to get rid of.

Got a lot of extra stuff eh?  I've got a ton of extra "junk" that is priceless to me.   :)

Actually last month, I was in need of money and forced to put my Unleashed collection on ebay along with a few army-builders.  I have a bad feeling I am going to need to do something similar again.   :(

 They have star wars action figure-scaled darkstalkers figures? NO WAY! This I have to see!

A couple of Sith lords I did a few years back:



One on the left is Darth Yarkon and other is Lord Vel (fan fic names).  Yarkon was a Maul, with Sith Accesory cloak and Battlefield Earth Johnny head. Vel was my first sculpey job. Used a Titan AE body (can't remember the fig) and sculpey'd the head. Then Peter Jackson borrowed my design for the Wraith King  ;D.

There was a two pack of darkstalkers figures awhile back that came with Lillith and a big tall vampire guy. I picked up the set at KB toys for like $3 when they closed all those stores. The Lillith was star wars scale. The other figure was 6". I can't find a picture it.

FisTer,

Cool looking customs there, the color choice on Yarkon is really wild and the sculpting on Vel is realy slick. That base figure isn't from Titan AE though, it's the bad guy from Xyber 9. Can't remember his name but I thought he would make an interesting sith also...

Darth Fister - cool Sith on the right, I like his helmet (those LOTR bastards  >:(  ;))

CHEWIE - Awesome idea for the Deadite Sith Lord, he looks perfect.  I also like that bottom Sith, what is the head from?  As always, I'm completely blown away by the drybrushing  :o

Thanks guys.  Yeah, I made those while back... the skeleton guy a few months back and the demon one about a year ago.

The demon guy was made from the "Cryptozoology" figures that TRU had a year or so ago, he was called the "Jersey Devil" I think.

I will try and get my new Sith Lord started tonight as I was unable to get any work done on it last evening.

With all that's been going on with me it's been hard to post updates, but I decided I better pop in here to show I haven't forgotten my brothers at JD.com.

Although I don't consider this one finished (I want to add some Djas Puhr holsters to this one at least, and maybe modify the hands) here is my extremely LATE smuggler entry.



Not my best, but the best I could do with the limited time I had for this one. I'm already hard at work on some Sith Lords, so hopefully I'll be a little timelier with my next entry. Oh, and what challenge comes the month after after Sith Lords?

-DD

DD - it's good to see some more of your customs!  I was going through DD withdrawal!  I hope everything is well with you and that you get some more time for customs, I can't wait to see your Sith  ;)
