Wow, check out those awesome Kashyyyk Clones!  Woo hoo! 

Felucia is coming along nice too, and look at all those Tactical Ops troops!

Clone Hunter - Thanks.  If Hasbro ever did get around to releasing the Kashyyyk clone, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they used the 2001 POTJ sculpt.  I'd say it's 50-50 between the POTJ and VTSC sculpts if and when they get around to it, and even then they'd probably mess up the paint scheme.  Just look at Gree.  So I figured, what the hell, might as well pick up 15 VTSC scouts and just make the Kashyyyk squads myself.


CHEWIE - Thanks again for the Yak feature, looks sweet on their main page.


BrentS - Thanks.  I'm trying to find some good mushrooms for to litter the Felucia base with.  It's just a matter of finding them and that dio will be done.  I might also put a blue backdrop behind all the flora like in the movie.

DR --

Great job on the BARC troopers -- now if I could only find any VTSC :-P.

I like your Felucia work so far.  I wish you luck on the mushrooms -- I searched all over the place when I was working on my Felucia dio and had a hard time locating anything in scale.  My final soultion was to use nut and bolt combinations which I covered in terracotta Das pronto to make them organic looking mushrooms...



If you do find anything workable, let us know because I'd love to upgrade mine.

Okay, big update today.

First up, is my improvement to General Grievous.  Grievous is HUGE in the movie, yet Hasbro made him 3 3/4".  My version is an inch taller like the figure should have been in the first place, and I was tempted to make him even a little taller:








Next up is Tarfful.  He looks very bulky in the movie, kind of like the Preview Wookiee Warrior.  Hasbro's version was too skinny, and a little short.  So, I took matters into my own hands:



Hasbro's version:



Here's Tarfful meeting with General Gree and some troops on Coruscant before they depart to Kashyyyk:





And here is Gree and his troops landing on Kashyyyk in their BARC gear:



Last up is a Fan Fic Scuba Clone that I made a while ago but never posted:

Nice update!  I like the X-tra tall Grevious.  What did you do to make him taller?  I looks like you might have spliced together extra leg pieces. 

Tarrful definitely looks much more menacing this way!

The Kashyyyk troopers are a great update on the biker scouts.

All in all great update!

I like the rest, but your Tarfull is lacking somthing. Maybe you should sculpt his armor on.

It is good to see the VSTC Scouts can hold clone blasters.

Yours look good but, I think you need to camo or dirty them some more.

The taller Grievous is something that my friend and I have been debating customizing, but never got around to it. I was thinking of a combination of extending his mid-torso and his shins, but your method works perfectly.

Wow! Your Tarful is just worlds better than the stock Hasbro fig. I really always thought that the Hasbro one was too malnourished-looking, as well. This figure does the character justice.

Grievous looks a lot better at your height Dressel.  How did you do it?  Also I wonder how one would make the cape a bit longer? 

I think Tarfful looks great the way you made him, just a bit dark in the one pic. 

The Scuba Clone looks nice, but a bit fluorescent(sp?) I think.  Still a great use of additional parts on him and looks great.

That Greivous looks great Dressel! It is something I've been thinking of doing too, but haven't quite figured out what parts to use. Judging by the pic next to Obi-Wan you seem to have a done a great job on the scale.

The Kashyyyk clones look great as well, I think the visors on them are supposed to be green but I don't remember for sure...

I think you are off to a good start with Tarfful but I really think you need to add his bandoliers, rather than just painting them. You did a good job on the fur tone though, it looks much better than Hasbro's.

The barc clones are great, but the Tarful is exceptional. Now this is a figure I would have bought. Hes huge like a wookie should be and doesnt have that stupid power action that In my opinion ruined the sculpt of the figure. Excellent job Dressel.

Sorry I disappeared so long.  I suck.

Basically I chopped Grievous' lower leg in half at the shin, then used sculpy to mold a piece to join the two pieces of his shin.  I added 1" to Hasbro's figure.  The cape is the same that came with Hasbro's version.  All I did then is paint the shin the right color scheme.
