I've a rough design for my terrorist, so I figure I'll share it here. His name is Tarrington and his inspiration is British colonialism in Mesopotamia/Africa.



Tarrington will be making an appearence in later episodes of The United. Since this is a fairly simple custom, I hope to have him finished later in the week...depending on my Homework load.

I've used the torso and arms of the clone wars anakin for my bounty hunter as well. I want to make another, but I have no inspiration :P

Yeah, this is excellent.  I've already commented on DD's custom before, but again I have to say how nice this turned out (and original).  He looks like he's the meanest Bith in the galaxy.

Vator, that's one wild design you've come up with.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

I do. Would you like them? :) I have 2 sets of arms, I needs one set for my Trandoshan terrorist and I have an extra set of feet, they were cut off right at the end of the pants.

DD i love your Bith terrorist, as everyone else has said its very original and the paint job really makes the figure that much better imho.  :)

i've got a few ideas for the terrorist concept, i am thinking that i am going to go with a vintage style since i have more vintage parts than anything else at the moment. i am really leaning towards a Gamorrean terrorist...if i can make it turn out right i hope. i've been caught up working on an elite Mygeeto clone, inspired by some of Jubjub's drawings. i just can't seem to get the darn clones out of my system yet...it's a complete love/hate affair.  :P

HAHA!! Yeah, let's DO her!! LOL

Anyway, for this month, since the guys at FFURG are building their Snoova, I entered and Snoova's a bounty hunter: here's my entry for this month:



I used a ROTS Wookiee warrior (Thanx to Findswoman), scalpted him and sculpted new hair + an eyepatch. I used all kinds of bits and parts to build him an armor that kept the Wookiee-look but still stayed true to the original bounty hunter design. I didn't want to much of that high tech stuff, but enough. I gave him a backpack with large antenna and some more gismo's on his arm and leg. I also added a "prize" on the front of his torso. The 3 grey "balls" are human head sculls I found on a cheap figure's belt. As base for his armour I used the wookiee warrior bandolier and started cutting and glueing. Mostly I like his sholderpatch. It's big, out there and daring, but I think it makes him look bad ass.
The gun is a modified Wookiee Warrior bow caster. I added a new handle so he can hold it properly, gave it a pike and a broad blade. The blade I added because the orignal figure had an ax, wookiees normally have ryyk blades, so I made a combination of it.

Please let me know what you think of him. I have more pics, bigger pics, if anyone wants to see them. Just ask.

Great work!  I like all of the additions - it really hardly looks like a wookie warrior figure anymore.  I definitely see the Snoova - excellent job on the hair and eyepatch.
The human skulls are cool too, good stuff.
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, I think you may have won that contest already!  What a fantastic custom!

This is easily one of the coolest customs I've ever seen, and all of a sudden the Snoova design seems much, much better.

Such fantastic detail and accessories too.  What a great figure.  Take a bow, you deserve it.

I would buy this figure in a hearbeat if Hasbro were to make it look even close to this good.

 :P

Nothing like killing two birds with one stone. Those are some great ideas. I'll have to incorporate some of them in my version.

Sure, we can do her.  But I'm first in line.   I hate sloppy seconds.   ;D

In all seriousness though, I don't know how I'd go about making a figure like this.
