Jedi Erida looks awesome!
Nice use of blues, it doesnt even look out of place.
Kit is also great. but yeah the episode 2 version might be a bit better.
But this one is more relaxed so its okay.
Great customs!

I can't believe I missed this Jedi... wow, where have I been.   ???  It's one of the cleanest looking Jedi customs I've seen, I love it.  Wonderful paint scheme and color choice.

I think that Kit Fisto looks great.  I like his dark green robes, very suiting for his character.  I kind of agree on the head... I wouldn't necessarily switch it out, I'd maybe repaint it though.

Good work here!

Thanks for the comments guys.  I liked the way Kit turned out.  I think the green jedi tunic fits the character better.  I also agree that the AOTC kit head is more detailed than the ROTS one, but I decided to go with the ROTS head since the tentacles were more relaxed and draped over the shoulders.  The AOTC head seems to be more in an  action pose.

I agree about the tentacles. The ep2 version has them going wild. Just a repaint to the face should work. I just don't like that smilely happy face Hasbro drew on it.

Mate I really like the look of Jedi Zoran Erida the purple/blue robes look excellent against the grey tunic and kit fisto in clone armour is very well done top stuff.

I really like this "armored" Kit Fisto.  The color scheme on the robes looks awesome, although I think the white armor looks a little off.  I think maybe painting it grey (like Saesee Tinn's Animated Clone Wars armor) would be more fitting with the green robes.
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 have to say that I like every one of your customs. I have to ask, do the #41 lower legs and elbows come out easily using boil and pop? I am picturing a plastic pin that can be easily removed when the figure has been boiled?? Am I right.

Thanks again for all the comments guys.  I actually thought about painting the armor grey but I wasn't sure how it would look with the kacky pants so I decided to play it safe and keep them white.

wow, I have to say that I like every one of your customs. I have to ask, do the #41 lower legs and elbows come out easily using boil and pop? I am picturing a plastic pin that can be easily removed when the figure has been boiled?? Am I right.

I actually don't boil and pop the newer SW figures anymore.  With the softer plastic that Hasbro is using, I was damaging some of the pegs when they became too soft in the hot water.  But you are right, the clone (as well as some of jedi) arms and legs are plug like pins that can be easily removed.  I now use a hairdryer to soften the plastic to remove the arms and legs.

The clone arm and legs plugs are a little bit longer and wider than the jedi, so they sometimes need to be trimmed down a bit to fit into the jedi arm and leg sockets. But other then that, they are a pretty easy part swaps.

do the clone legs and arms come out of their new jedi sockets to easily or are they sturdy.

The clone arms and legs are pretty sturdy in the jedi sockets since they are little bit larger than the original pegs on the jedi arms and legs.

Not a SW custom, but he is in scale with the SW figures.

Bio:
John- 117 (or more often referred to as Master Chief) was the sole Spartan to leave the Reach system aboard the Pillar of Autumn (with the exception of Linda-058 in cryo). For all he knew, he was the last Spartan alive. All of humanity depended on him, for even after their defeat at Halo the Covenant were still strong, and there were new enemies and variables to contend with that Earth knew nothing about: the Flood, the Forerunner, and their creations, such as 343 Guilty Spark.

This figure was completely casted by Master_Gunzz and then painted by myselft.  I also decided to card this figure and made my own custom cardback for it.

Let me know what you guys think.

The Figure:






The Cardback (The size has been reduce to fit the board):

Very, very cool Phalanx!  I really think it looks much better in Star Wars scale.  I'd buy them for fodder if they were this scale.   :)
