RichardTheBloody's Custom Figures
« on: November 17, 2005, 07:19 PM »
WOOOT!!! I finally did it! I took put my AOTC 12 inch Obiwan Head onto the body of the ROTS Clone trooper <anyone else know they had 2 piece heads? The helmet itself, then a neck piece/spacer plug> I actually did it last night but i was too chicken to take the neck piece off the clone, leaving obiwan's neck a tad too long... Pics to follow. Now i just have to sew up a jedi Robe...i have the cloth, and i was going to use Maul's as a template, cause i'm leaving the Episode I Qui-Gon unopened  :D:D:D:D:D

Usually it is customary to post pictures with your posts though. ;)

I know, i'd just finished it when i posted...hadn't had time to take pix LOL...but here you go: http://photobucket.com/albums/b174/Richardthebloody

Right now i'm just using the Robe from an episode I Maul, but i have the cloth, i just have to get around to sewing up a jedi robe out of the brown cloth i have...and i didn't use the lightsaber i made for it because my camera doesn't do very well with closeup detail. Love it? hate it? Lemme know :D

Pics are a little blurry, but they do look nice.  Looks much better than what Hasbro would probably have made.  But with the new Sideshow ones coming out, we might actually get something like this someday.

Hi RichardTheBloody

The pics look good what I can see of them maybe a few clearer shots would help but what I can see of Obi he does look good and the head looks perfect on the clones body.

Thanks for the comments folks :) I'm sorry about the picture quality, but my only digicam is the one built into my Palm. It does the job, but as you can see, not too great on detail. I would have used my webcam, but IT washes out the color LOL. I'll try and see if i can borrow my brother's digi and take some new ones. In the meantime, Thanks for the feedback, this is the first time i've done anything on this scale, and i'm happy with how it turned out :D

SA Commander Bacara
« Reply #6 on: November 20, 2005, 06:45 PM »
I saw a post on snowtroopers the other day about swapping bacara's armor pieces and helmet onto a better body. First i tried swapping the pieces onto the #33 Red Commander body, with no success...<the back piece was too large for the shoulder pauldron harness to fit around. I tried again with the #6 clone...everything fit...with the exception of the kama <the skirt piece> Then i heard of someone trying it with a #41 SA Clone trooper...here's my attempt...

Sorry about the picture quality, but the camera has a fixed focus lens...not very good at detail unfortunately :(

Can't really tell from the pics, maybe take them farther away so they're not so blurry. My camera has fixed focus too, I know it's frustrating.

Nice parts swap, I did the same thing.  Kinda blurry pics, but I can see what you did.  Good work.

Cool idea.

That 12" kenobi in Clone armour is amazing too!

12 inch Jedi Knight Dooku
« Reply #10 on: December 25, 2005, 12:53 AM »
I was working on a kitbash for another figure when i thought "Why not put AOTC obiwan's robe on what was left of Dooku's body?" <i was using this body for a kitbash after i accidentally ripped the neck ball off while trying to get the head free> I added the lightsaber from Bariss Offee <looked like a match for this: http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/swsaga/saga-dooku_acc.jpg > and Voila! Dooku, Jedi Knight <not sure if he was a master before he left the order or not>

Looks pretty good. I like it. Any chance of clearer pics?

Sorry about the pix...that's as clear as my palmtop gets unfortunately...it has a 2X zoom, but that just makes the picture bigger, it doesn't enhance detail :(

Looks pretty good to me - I'm not into the 12" line, but you did a great job on this.
