Clorri and Anchisis are some of the greatest customs you've done yet, IMO. Love seeing your work.

After repainting Graga, did you decide to scrap your old custom? Just curious.

Anchisis the slayer is very nice, is his dagger from the V for Vendetta figure?

I like that troop carier too, very nice.  ;D

Hey thanks guys for the feedback.

Jediknight760071 - Thank you, on the Anchisis I might make a change or two for when he's in a photonovel... not sure I like the paint job on the vest... somewhere I think I have the old Gragra custom... I guess if I ever find it, I'll try to upgrade it somehow.

Clone Commander - Thanks, the dagger I think for Anchisis is from the SAGA2 Bib Fortuna?

Here's a few more, not too much but a few more new customs -

DARK JEDI - part of January Yakfinities.  I wasn't happy at all with my first entry, so I made a new one.



head - POTF2 Labria
gloves - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver
torso/arms - Evolutions AOTC Anakin
legs/tunic - POTJ Eeth Koth

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FEMALE REBEL - Just felt like doing something for the UGP rebels, a little different for me since most of my customs are prequel based, so this was a nice change of pace.  Not too happy about the paint on this one though.  I think I painted it too many times... I painted this figure three times before I had a paint scheme that I liked.



head - POTF2 Speederbike Leia
torso/arms/gloves - SAGA Rebel Trooper
legs - ROTS Deluxe Stass Alie

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TRENTIN VALORUM - Completely fan fiction idea, a member of the Valorum House.  Will appear in the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - SAGA2 Zev
hands - can't remember
torso/arms - SAGA2 Sora Bulq
belt - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
legs - Evolutions Dooku

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ALEXSIN SINNIR - I'm going on a limb here and predicting that the Yakfinities for February will be hotties, and I think February is going to be very busy for me so I jumped in and made this for it... Will appear in the Rykrof Enloe series.  I might touch up the straps on her legs... will probably do that sometime in the next couple weeks.



head - GI JOE Zarana
arms - POTF2 Princess Leia Collection
torso - ROTS Aayla Secura
legs - Clone Wars Asajj Ventress

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As usual, all this stuff looks great.  Had an idea for you, howabout the Chameleon droid head from the Illum set on an R2 body?  Could be cool.---Mike

Been working on something like you suggested for a while speedermike, just been too busy to really get to work on it... hope to get back on track, but I see myself hitting a customizing rut for a while.   :-\

Guess what... an update. 

First off, I made a junkyard recently for the UGP and several droids for it... first off, some WIP pics -







And the end result before mailing it to Phruby -




























===============================================

Overall, I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

( 1 ) For assembly, it was mainly styrene.  Measuring, cutting, gluing together.  Then a lot of sanding - wihtout sandpaper, I don't know how this would have looked.

( 2 ) Once I was happy with the appearance, I took a towel and cleaned the entire wall sections.  Then I went ahead and sprayed a primer spray on it from Krylon. 

( 3 ) After it dried, I cleaned it with a towel again, and glued on little greeblies (like the commtech chips).

( 4 ) Then, I added just a touch of another coat of primer, and cleaned off again after it dried.

( 5 ) At this point, I got a regular can of Krylon spray paint (not the cheap $1 cans, I used the $4 stuff and painted it - two coats.

( 6 ) Then I sprinkled on just a bit of black spray paint here and there.

( 7 ) Next step was to clean it off with a towel again, and then start dry brushing some details here and there (like the gray strokes all over the edges), add a few orange strokes, black strokes, etc.

( 8 ) Finally, I gave it a good paint wash with black in some areas and let it run down the walls, and a couple areas with a gray wash to let it soak up a bit of different color. 

( 9 ) For the smelting pit area, I did several washes - black, orange, gray, and black again. 

( 10 ) Once it was dry, I did a light spray of matte acrylic finish over the whole thing.

That's the process in a nutshell.  Fun project to work on, I can't wait to get it back after the project for a photonovel.   

Here's a recipe for the stuff in it -

Junkyard Dealer - He was made from a POTF2 Ponda Baba, and the Rodian band member in ROTJ.  I actually made him a while back but thought he would look ok as the owner of this place.

Gonk - just a repaint

Repair Droid - made up mostly from POTJ FX-7

Artillery Droid - made from some Capcom robot parts and a STAP piece

ASP Droid - just a repaint

Sensor Droid - made from the Chameleon Droid and a couple thermal detonators

Medical Droid - made from  Firespeeder pilot backpack, SAGA research droid, POTJ FX-7 and OTC IG-88 - made this one a few months ago for the project.


===============================================

Now, onto some more traditional customs -

Commander Rumon - just a fan fic clone commander.

torso - SAGA2 Hammerhead
runic - ROTS Mace Windu
arms - POTC Jack Sparrow
legs - POTC Jack Sparrow

Scrubber Droid
base - vacuum cleaner nozel
handle - POTF2 Speederbike vanes

--------------------------

JEDI MASTER CARTAS AURELIUS - a Jedi Surivivor that will square off against Vader in the UGP diorama at C4.







head - 21st century (I think)
hood - Bust Up Darth Sidious
torso - Pirates Sao Feng
arms - Pirates Sao Feng
tunic - SAGA2 Kitik Keedkak

--------------------------

Rhen Var Scout Trooper - (should have given him a smaller gun, for a photonovel someday)

arms - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver
legs - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver

--------------------------

Tylin Gere - Admiral Uniform - upcoming photonovel



head - POTJ Boshek
torso - SAGA2 Jerjerrod
hands - can't remember
legs - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner

--------------------------

Judiss - new and slightly improved over a version I made over a year ago, for the Rykrof Series.



head - POTF2 Ponda Baba
hands - Planet of the Apes figure
rest - POTC Gotal

--------------------------

Troffar the Terrible - a ruthless Badoo Corba terrorist in the Rykrof photonovel series.



head - ROTS Ask Aak
hands - POTC Myo
legs - Evolutions Darth Maul
holster - SAGA2 Garindan
torso/arms - 21st century German Officer

--------------------------

Freelo - a redone version of him with his infamous "shell armor", this one is much more proportioned with the parts used. Freelo is a fun character, who if he survives the Clone Wars, it will be from his good luck



head - ROTS Meena Tills
hands - ROTS Meena Tills
torso - Xyber 9 figure
arms - ROTS Clone Pilot
legs - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver

head/neck - POTF2 Aunt Beru's Tredwell Droid
base - Star Tours droid (no idea what the name is)

--------------------------

BUTT UGLY TWI'LEK



head - Good To Go Customs (good head, I just made her ugly)
torso - Pirates Elizabeth Swan
arms - SAGA2 Arena Padme
legs - SAGA2 Bousch Leia
tunic - SAGA2 Bousch Leia

--------------------------

HEAVY ASSAULT CLONES



Just a mixture of orange Commando parts and Utapua clones for both and a Sandtrooper pauldron.

--------------------------

ZEEDO CHISIS - this guy has had several appearances in the Rykrof Enloe series, if you are familiar at all with the Badoo Corba then you've probably seen this guy in action before. And this is my favorite type of custom - parts swapping, repaint, dry brushing, etc.



head - POTF2 Greedo
torso - Alien Racers figure
arms/gloves - SAGA Endor Rebel
belt/holster - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
pelvis - ROTS Count Dooku
legs - VSTC Biker Scout

I also put him next to Mubaas Fuuda, the new leader of the Badoo Corba for the picture.

--------------------------

Rykrof Enloe - Curse of Dathomir appearance



head - SAGA Endor Rebel
body/legs/arms - Evolutions AOTC Clone Trooper
poncho - SAGA2 Endor Luke

After adding the poncho (which he did have in the previous chapter, but it wasn't damaged at all yet), I burnt it some with a lighter, then added some paint markings, and some additional weathering on the figure itself. Nothing too major but I hope it will look realistic for his Dathomir Witch encounter.

--------------------------

Republic Combat Engineer Pilots - I love these guys, very happy with them.  Basically repainted their markings with a differnet shade and matched it up with paint on the helmets and added a touch of weathering.



helmet - Evolutions Clone Pilot
rest - SAGA2 Combat Engineer

--------------------------

Un-named Jedi Knight - This poor fellow has been through hell, hunted down by Vader years after the fall of the Republic.  I'm pushing for this to be part of the UGP in throwing in a touch of Force Unleashed.





head - WW2 figure
torso - ROTS Kit Fisto
arms - ROTS Kit Fisto
hands - POTJ Rebel Fleet Trooper
legs - Evolutions AOTC Anakin

--------------------------

Jedi Knight Clorri (version 2) - this is based off an earlier version of her that I made and is a commission for another collector. 



head - Pirates Elizabeth Swan
torso - SAGA2 Bousch
arms - SAGA2 Bousch

skirt - Clone Wars Asajj Ventress

arms - SAGA2 Bousch
harness - SAGA2 Bousch
legs - ROTS Luminara Unduli
skirt - Clone Wars Asajj Ventress

--------------------------

Governor Tarkin - this one is for me!  I realize the rank badge is off, but it really doesn't bother me.



head - Comic 2pk Tarkin
hands - Comic 2pk Tarkin
torso/arms/legs - Conference Room General Tagge (or one of those guys)

--------------------------

That's all for now folks...

I really like that Imperial Gunner. The Heavy Assault Clones, I do similar things sometimes. I would show them but I don't have a camera. :-\

Is the Elizabeth Swan head ball-jointed? I may wnat to use it for customs, but I'm not much of a boiler more of a part-swapper & re-painter.

Those are very good. I dont remember Aqualish dud from your pn, and I cant wait to see Mubaas. Butt ugly Twilek is extremely random, but arent random customs the most fun ones to make? And yep, shes pretty damn ugly. The 212th Heavy assault clones are very cool, Ive always liked the 212th. Those Jedi look like theyve been through a lot, poor guys. Both female Jedi look very, very cool, very hot.

Basically, I could go on all day, you make some awesome customs! Great work, man!  8)

Thanks guys, and update time!  Here's what I've been able to work on the past couple months...


RYKROF ENLOE - The darkhorse hero in the Clone Wars photonovels... well here's a new look for him in his next chapter, which I'm trying to find time to work on.

gloves - can't remember
tunic - ROTS Count Dooku
legs - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner



QUINLAN VOS - Improved articulation.

shoulders/biceps - TAC Mace Windu
forearms - Comic Pack Obi Wan Kenobi

torso - SAGA Whipid
arms - SAGA Whipid
hands - ROTS Preview Wookiee
legs - SAGA Whipid/ROTS Preview Wookiee hybrid
tunic - VSTC Tusken Raider



Coruscant Female Citizen - Nothing too great, but I did do quite a bit of deail on the horns - I primed this whole figure first before painting it so I had to repaint for whole head, for better or worse...



head - SAGA Youngling
torso - POTC Rabe
arms - EPI Battle Naboo Amidala



Freelo- updated shell armor for a recent photnovel.  I had made him before but this is an upgrade I think in terms of color selection - now his shell is more visible.



head - ROTS Meena Tills
hands - ROTS Meena Tills
arms - ROTS Clone Pilot
legs/hips - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver
torso - Xyber 9 Figure



Duros Jedi - Figured time for me to try a new Jedi look, this guy will appear somewhere in the Rykrof stories.



head - POTJ Ellors Madak
arms - Alien Racer Figure
torso - ROTS Count Dooku
tunic - Evolutions Darth Maul
legs - Evolutions Palpatine



Aayla Secura - This one is a commission for a friend, look for it soon I believe in a photonovel by another member of the Yakface forums...



head - ROTS Aayla Secura
torso - ROTS Aayla Secura
arms - Clone Wars Asajj Ventress
legs - ROTS Luminara


Spacer - Look for this guy to appear in a photonovel in the Rykrof series somewhere down the road.



helmet - POTJ Boshek
body - VSTC Greedo
gloves - can't remember


Rodian Citizen - this guy will also appear in a photonovel later on down the road.

head - ROTS Ask Aak
torso - TAC Villie
arms - TAC Villie
legs - VSTC Tusken Raider



General Caepio Rutilus - A Jedi General, look for him in the Rykrof Enloe series at some point.



head - Tin Endor Rebel
torso - TAC Quinlan Vos

hands - Evolutions ROTS Anakin
legs - Evolutions ROTS Anakin



ET Senator - This was my entry for this month's Yakfinities customizing challenge.

head - Comic 2-pk Stormtrooper disguise
legs - POTF2 Commtech Luke
rest - TAC Tatooine Luke



Gritwol Jennix - This guy was a custom I started about 3-4 years ago, and I never had really painted him until this week.  Kind of like this one, he had been hiding way back in a diorama before I decided to take him off the shelf and finally complete him.



head - POTJ Ketwol
rest - POTF2 Pote Snikin



Task Ninso - Another custom from a couple years back at least - finally painted him how I wanted to.  He was ok before but a bit better now I think... funny that this guy came from a POTF2 Pote Snikin too.



head - SAGA Bossk
hands - SAGA Bossk
rest - POTF2 Pote Snikin



Kala Mly Shundi - This fan fiction Jedi from the Rykrof Enloe series finally gets a new look - well, somewhat new.  Basically the same look he's always had, but updated with newer parts. 



head - SAGA Youngling
hood - Evolutions Darth Maul
gloves - OTC General Madine
rest - TAC Mace Windu



Noris Simmo - Naboo citizen.  Look for a few more Naboo folks soon as I'm nearing a chapter in the Rykrof series that has some parts of Naboo in it.



head - TAC Yavin Honor Guard
jacket/arms - TAC Academy Biggs
tunic - SAGA2 General Veers
legs - ROTS Count Dooku


Wookiee Traveler - Just a Wookiee for fun.  He might appear in a photonovel, who knows.   8)



head - SAGA2 Chewbacca in chains
torso - Early Bird Chewbacca
arms - Early Bird Chewbacca
legs - McQuarrie Chewbacca
clothes - POTF2 Pote Snikin



Pichis Nills - This Gotal is a diplomat on Naboo.  He will appear in a future photonovel.



head - POTC Gotal
hands - POTC Gotal
arms - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
torso - Baron Papanoida
legs - OTC Lobot



Naboo Pilots - These guys will certainly appear, and really I just wanted to give them some articulated legs.  The Typho figure is a great sculpt but really lacks in articulation!



heads - Tantive IV Battlepack
torso - SAGA Captain Typho
legs - ROTS Kit Fisto



Folis Ponco - This guy is an advisor on the Naboo High Council.  He'll appear too.



head - 21st Century Toys
hands - POTC Dannik Jerriko
torso - ROTS Count Dooku
arms - Evolutions Count Dooku
tunic - SAGA2 General Veers
legs - ROTS Count Dooku




Aurra Sing - This is just a fan fiction design.  She may or may not show up in the series... not sure if I should include her or not?  But I do like this custom, and tried to give her a larger body frame (the Hasbro versions seem way too short to me).  This one took a ton of parts from different figures!!



head - POTJ Aurra Sing
hands - SAGA2 Walmart Aurra Sing
scarf - SAGA2 Walmart Aurra Sing
torso - ROTS Luminara Undudi
jacket - POTJ Bespin Han
arms - SAGA2 Death Star Trooper
tunic - ROTS Zett Jukassa
legs - ROTS Count Dooku



Terrorist Interceptor - This is just a repaint of the vintage ATL Interceptor.  It's the signature vessels used by the Badoo Corba terrorists in the Rykrof Enloe photonovels.





parts - Vintage ATL Interceptor


ITK Droid (Interrogate-Torture-Kill) - This is an older model torture droid used by the Badoo Corba to interrogate prisoners of war. 



parts - POTJ FX-7, some Star Tours droid, and varoius greeblies



Rykrof Enloe - The main character in the photonovel series as he will appear as a prisoner of war, in custody of the Badoo Corba.



head - SAGA Endor Trooper
torso - TAC Tatooine Luke
arms - TAC Tatooine Luke
hands - POTJ Rebel Fleet Trooper
waist piece - Evolutions Darth Sidious
legs - Evolutions Darth Sidtious



On top of that, I did post some updates in the photonovel section over the past couple months, but more importantly, I became a dad on May 23 for the first time.  Here's a few pictures of my son, Kiefer Justin Cook.
