Wow! You've definately improved this figure over the previous pictures I've seen of it. I really like the helmet and the detail put in to it.

You blended the scuplty in perfectly. Looks awsome!

Cool man, that's some good sculpting you have going on there. 
Is that sculpey?
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.

That's so awesome Sith Fire.  Well beyond my capabilities.  I just can't sculpt for anything, and know that I would get frustrated with the armor.

Hopefully Hasbro will make this figure soon, because I know I can't make one.

Hey,  That figure looks great.  Just curious, what is that he's satning on.  Looks like some sort of pegboard, but the holes seem really small, and did you put the pegs in?

Whatever that materiak is, it would be great for display pieces.

Wow, I can't believe that's done with sculpty and not wax! That's incredibly superb for something done with sculptey. I can't fathom it,but maybe that's cause I'm a horrible sculptor.

Good Lord, this turned out so well!  I don't think you made this as a removable helmet version; that is the only thing I think could make this figure better.  And that holster doesn't look like sculpy at all!

You've really blown me away with all of these Clones lately... I can't wait to see some of your non-Clone work too!

Sweet ****! :o That is amazing! The scupting is excellent. I really like how the back pack attaches, it was very creative to use the SA clone's antennae mount. The paint app is great too, I like the weathering a lot and it doesn't seem to be overdone. I really like the detail, how all the little lights and switches are painted on the belt and backpack, even the backside of the backpack.

I also have to comment on your great photography skills. The crystal clear photos really help show off that work of art.

Keep it up! :)

Agreed! This turned out really well. I think I like this one the best of the thousands created recently. I like the fact that you sculpted the accessories by yourself and used the fett jetpack. It's so cool to see him have the launch fire behind him.

Holy crap!  That Cody is amazing!  The sculpted armor is the clincher for me; It really looks dead on.  I like the various antennae and stuff.  Of course, very clever use of the SA antenna mount for the backpack, I might have to try that for some of my guys. 

That first pic of Cody with his jetpack ignited is incredible.  What kind of camera do you use?  Are you a professional photographer?  Seriously man, your pics are stellar  :o

Thanks - The base is actually from the McFarlane's Spawn evolutions assortment. They work really well for display :) Wish he sold them seperately...
