Nice new round. The DS Trooper is a vast improvement and I love the Gamorrian guard.

Very cool customs. Like the Gamorrean!

Thanks guys.  Here's a small update.

Ithorian - Just a background alien, I'm not sure when or where I'll use him in a PN, but do intend to at some point give him a PN appearance.



head - SAGA2 Hammerhead
arms - SAGA2 Hammerhead
legs - SAGA2 Hammerhead
torso - POTF2 Ree Yees



General Snodd's Droid - Just a droid assistant for this Nemoidian general, will hopefully get him in a PN at some point.



head - ROTS Magna Guard
rest - TAC Concept 3PO



Bith Jedi - For a PN.



head - POTF2 Bith
torso - SAGA Nikto Jedi
arms - SAGA Nikto Jedi
cloak - SAGA Nikto Jedi
tunic - POTJ 25th Anniversary Kenobi


Gamorrean Guards - Made one of these a couple weeks back, and had started a second one (just needed the hood).  Got a hood that I needed for it in the mail on Friday so I was able to add the hood Sunday night and paint it.  So now I have two of these goons.   8)



head - POTF2 Gamorrean Guard
hood - ROTS Deluxe Palpatine
rest - TAC Mustafar Miner

Great batch. I'm having trouble logging back into Yakface right now, so I'll leave feedback here.

Groovy Ithorian. His clothes looks padded, and that's a pretty cool look. Maybe it's like a sweater or some weird spacer clothes.

Snodds droid. He makes me uncomfortable, and for some reason looking at it makes me uneasy. Looks really creepy, honestly.

I'm not sure how I feel about the Bith. His outfit doesn't seem to jive well with his species, but that's just my take on it.

Again, those Gamorians are the coolest. Truly a BAMF figure.

Wow chewie, I really like that paint app on your bith. Im usually not one to comment on all your figures cause you do them all so well, i would just be repeating myself, but the bith stands out big time. THat is very artistic and plain cool. Phenomenal work.
THe gamorean thug is equally as nice but he could stand to pack on a few pounds.

I gotta agree, the Bith kicks ass. I like the shadowing to simulate tears and cuts in the fabric. He's very battle work. I also like the use of the concept 3po with the body guard head. I think it would be interesting to see the use of the Cobra B.A.T. head with being used with this body too.

Another great batch. I dont know why but I really, really like that Ithorian for some reason. Snodd's droid is frightening, what a creepy droid but then again doesnt that make him perfect for Snodd?  ;) And I cant believe you used another McDroid for a custom! How can you bring yourself to do that?  :-X The Bith Jedi is very nice but havent we already seen a Bith Jedi play a somewhat prominent role in a PN episode? (killed by Dooku after a few lines). And once again, I really like your pig thug concept, a lot, its really a super custom. Well, nice work, Justin, AGAIN. Cant wait for more PN episodes.  8)

Badoo Corba Terror Droids - These are repaints of an earlier verison of these, look for them to appear soon too.



Both are made up mostly of the Superhero Showdown Doctor Doom figure.

The Artillery droid is an amazing custom, I wish I had the capability to do something like that. Great work! I also like your Coruscanti citizens, especially Mr. Noob Noob.  :)

Heya Chewie!

Love the use of the Doctor Doom base for the terror droids.

"Bleeda" has a great color scheme. I'm finding myself very envious of your color choices and painting skills

Also, always love your civillian customs! 

A really great batch.

I like the use of the Superhero Showdown figures for the droids. Lots of actuation out of those. I need to send you a Microman to see what you could come up with using that body. Cool Separatist Artillery Droid. I havn't seen the Mega Destroyer Droid used as a custom for years now.

Chewie, as always, your work is creative and professional.  Great stuff.  I had an idea for you for a new R2 unit---   The head of R1-G4 in the Unleashed Jawa set looks like it would fit right onto an R2 body, and could be pretty cool.---Mike
