I saw someone else made one like this a while now, and I thought it was an awesome idea, so I made my own:

You did a very nice job on this.   First custom?  Wow - you are already years ahead of where I started at. 

In fact, I'd like to ask you a couple questions...

(1) Is the Clonetrooper glued in place at all?

(2) Is Yoda glued onto him?

(3) Is the Yoda a kit bash from other Yodas?  Meaning is the cape from the Deluxe Yoda?

 :P

(1) The Clone is glued onto the base.

(2) No, the Yoda is held into place by the lightsaber hilt and the Clone's arm.

(3) The cape is from the Crotch Grabbing/spinning Yoda.

Awesome!  You could make a little diorama out of this and include an Obi Wan slashing down a couple more 501st while Yoda stabs this one.

In one of the original intentions of this scene, Obi Wan was supposed to be seen walking in front of the temple dressed like a vagabond, holding a small package in his arms.  Some 501st troopers approach, and ask him what he's doing there and what he's holding.  Obi-Wan posing as a vagabond says, "A jedi baby," and the clones ask "How can you tell it's a jedi baby?"  That's when either Yoda or Obi-Wan say "By it's lightsaber" and Yoda springs from his arms and starts the action...

I remember that. That was one of the more silly scenes in the movie. Good positioning on both yoda and the clone.

Nice job, especially if it's your first custom!

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.

I'd say that's  a good start  ;D

Did you paint the Clone as well, or is that one of the new Jedi Temple Raid Clones? Looks good, either way.

I'm pretty sure that Clone is custom painted... the legs are a dead giveaway since the Temple 5-pk Clone legs are pure white.

Wonderful job! I love how you showed Yoda! Nice paint job on the 501st. How did you weather the paint?

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, it's a custom painted #41, and I waited until the paint half dried, and then used a paper towel to weather it.

Noice!  I like how you used the saber and clone's arm to support Yoda - genius.

Thank you. :)

For anyone who likes this:

I'll almost certainly make another, better one of these and sell it on eBay for the Katrina relief fund, so be on the lookout for it.

I just made an Obi slashing through a Clone. I'll probably have pics up tomorrow.

This is Hrchek Kal Fas, the Trandoshan Cantina guy. The head and hands are From Bossk, and the body is a MASH Hawkeye. This is my first try, so it leaves much to be desired. I'm still a rookie in normal customs, much less vints.
