Amazing. What kind of articulation is on the fig? Gunzz casted it perfectly and you did a great job painting it up. What gun is that? Is that a sratch-built or a cast of something?
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Looks good.  I've only played Halo briefly at my Brother's house so I can't critique the authenticity of the figure.  But as a custom it looks extremely well made.

Thanks for the comments guys.  Master_Gunzz did do a great job on casting this figure.  He was actually able to cast and enlarged the 2inch figure to make it in scale with SW and GI.Joe figures. 

The figure maintained all of the articulation from the 2inch figure.  Ball-jointed neck, swivel/ball joint shoulders, swivel waist, wrist, elbow and knees.

Nice work Phalanxx!  Master_Gunzz did an excellent job on casting/upsizing that figure and your paint job definitely does it justice.  Excellent work you lucky dog you!  8)

I'm working on some fanfic battle droids and I can't decide which part combination I like better and need some help.  The basic idea for these figures is that the Seperatist Army created these Droid Commando's to better deal with the Clone Commando's and the Jedi.  The have better armor and self contained processors.  So far  I have decided to use the B.A.T. v5 lower torso and Overkill's arms.  But I can't decide on which upper torso to use.  Let me know what body configuration you guys like better.

I like the MK2 also.  I think the long straight edge at the top of the torso of the MK1 is too much of a contrast for the battle droid's smallish head.

I always like the idea of the Blackhole (shadow) troopers when they appeared in the Marvel Comics and then in Dark Horse's Crimson Empire.  And when Hasbro released photos of  the upcoming shadow stormtrooper figure, I just I couldn't wait and had to make my own version of it.  This custom was done using one of the Evo Sandtroopers. I also included a pic of the figure from hasbro's card art.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks!

Excellent paint job there Phalanxx. I love your version of this guy. I can see no reason to buy this one from shopstarwars since you made a far superior version for a fraction of the cost. Are you going to card him like the exclusive version? The only thing I would suggest is adding the silver to the helmet nozzels.

Very nice, I love the way the blue sets off the black. It makes the armor stand out a lot better. I see a lot of customs like this ( some of my own included :-[) that are just solid black. The blue breaks that up and makes it look a hell of a lot cooler. I think I need to make a few improvements on mine now. ;D Excellent job.

Very Nice trooper.  I can't imagine Hasbro's final release version looking any better.

After seeing everyone's great Mandalorian customs, I decided it was my turn to make one.   I originally wanted to use a VOTC fett figure, but I decided to first try out some of my color and part choice ideas  on a Saga Fett before customizing the more expensive VOTC figure.  So lets just call this figure my Mandalorian test run.  The helmet to me is a little small and is just the Saga figure's head hollowed out. The figure does have some battle damage/weathering on the armor, but it can't really be seen due to the camera flash.  Let me know what you guys think.  Thanks!

Parts list:
Head: Gung-Ho (G.I.Joe VvV)
Torso/Upper Arms/Legs: Saga Boba Fett
Lower Arms: Major Barrage (G.I.Joe DTC)
Helmet: Hollowed out Saga Boba Fett Head

Very cool dude! I like the colors, but they're still a bit flashy (probably due to the flash on your camera) To fix that helmet problem, you should contact Glassman6. He has awesome modded helmets. I used them too.

Thanks for the comments Kit.  Yeah the camera flash did drown out some of the weathering and brighten up the paint color.  As for the helmet, I do have some of Glassman's awesome Mando helmets, but i'm saving those for when i start customize the VOTC fett figures that I have.   :)
