I like the look of this one alot...maybe paint the hands to match the head, and maybe add a wash to his jumpsuit, but it looks really good.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Thanks for the comments guys.

ThePerennial - Glad you like him.  The helmet was one of the big quesiton marks I had on this custom.   I first thought I would be able to use one of Glassman's great expanded helmets, but Greedo's melon was even too big for that.  I might go back and make a sort of faceplate for him kinda like I did for my clone wars Saesen Tiin.  His hands are actually painted a light gray color to look like gloves.  Thanks again.

Quazar - Thanks man.  I'm glad you liked the backstory!

CHEWIE - I agree.  We need more tough Rodians and other tough alien species.  It seems for the most part, alot of the aliens out there are wimpy.

Smartypants1635 - Thanks SP.  The VOTC boba are quite hard to find.  Luckily I was able to find a batch of them on Ebay going for cheap.

master brisk arpor - I appreciate the kind words.  This figure kinda came about by accident, but once I saw that the Greedo head fit the VOTC fett.  I just knew I had to make it because the possibility of differnt types of mando's is basically endless.

 Darth Nirvana - Thanks D_N!  Glad you like him.  The hands are actually painted a light gray to simulate that he is wearing gloves.  The figure does have a light wash to it but the camera flash drowned most of it out.

Over at Commando Customs, we had a Group Project entitled "The Future is Now" where we were to take characters from any story line and create customs of the people who have stepped up and taken over the mantle of the original characters after their passing.

I chose to do the decendants of Han Solo and Boba Fett.  Let me know what you think. 

Arden Fett:
Found on a war torn world towards the end of the galactic war with Yuuzhan Vong, young Arden was found and adopted by Boba Fett and taught the ways of the Mandalorian.  Arden was inmersed into the Mandalorian life and took his teachings to heart.  Over the years, Arden proved himself with his actions that he was the living embodiment of the Mandalorian way.  When Boba Fett finally passed away, the mantle of leadership was passed on to Arden and he became the new Mandalor. 

Parts List:
Head - BBI Paratrooper
Figure - VOTC Boba Fett
Helmet - Cast of Glassman's Expanded Fett Helmet
Kama - Cloth (Hand Made)






Hayden Solo:
A direct decendant of Han Solo & Leia Organa-Solo, Hayden Solo grew up at the Jedi Academy at Ossus learning the ways of the Force.  Like his family before him, Hayden was gifted and had a strong connection to the Force.  Many at the Academy, believed once he reached the rank of Jedi Master, the Academy would be his to oversee as headmaster. But like other Solo's before him, his ambitious and adventurous side got the best of him and shortly after passing the Jedi Trials and becoming a Jedi Knight, Hayden left the Jedi Order to seek out his own path in life.  Already a skilled pilot, Hayden bought himself an old transport ship and began travelling the galaxy.  Although no longer offically a part of the Jedi Order, Hayden remains guided by the Force and finds himself helping those less fortunite throughout the galaxy.

Parts List:
Head & Body - Cale from Titan AE (2 Different Cale Figures)
Vest - Covergirl (G.I. Joe DD Comic 3 Pack)
Gunbelt - Greedo

Excellent Fett. I love the boots. Who do those belong to BTW I see them a lot, and I like them But I can never figure out which figure they belong to.

Im still in the process of making mine for this project. Better late than never right.

Nice update... the Hayden Solo figure looks great!  I might try and make the paint on him look a little more rugged so it looks more Star Wars-ish, but I love the parts choices.

The Arnen Fett is one of the best Mandalorian's I've seen, I love the crisp paint on him, and the kama is perfect.  This is an A+ custom.

I absolutely love the Arden Fett.
Hayden Solo is OK too, but has an "animated" feel.

I have the Titan "han Solo" guy, if someone can use it?

Just a minor update.  But thanks to GoodtoGoCustoms and customizer Jfak, I was able to give my Jedi Zoran Erida custom a cloth cloak with added playibility instead of the original plastic one that I had.  Let me know what you think.
