pauldron - Clone Wars Captain Rex
rest - Evolutions Clone Commander

robe - ROTS Bail Organa
torso - Legacy Bail Organa
arms - Legacy Bail Organa
hands - Legacy Prince Xizor

Black Sun Informant - This is a fan-fic Quarren merchant who is an informant for Black Sun and was made for the current Yakfinities. I didn't do much painting on this one because I really liked the look of the striped robe.

Alyssa Enloe - Another outfit for Rykrof's wife - very simple custom that didn't require any painting.

Kala has fallen to the Dark Side in the series and will appear like this at some point.

shoulder armor - Evolutions Sith Apprentice
arms - Clone Wars clone trooper

Here's a few more customs from the last few months... yeah I'm still customizing as usual.  It's a sickness.

General Snodd - Separatist General during the Clone Wars, fan fic character for the Rykrof Enloe series.  Anyone around here remember Kneel Before Snodd jokes from around 3-4 years ago?  Ha ha.



head - ROTS Neimoidian Warrior
helmet - ROTS Neimoidian Warrior
scarf - GI JOE Destro Comic Pack
torso - TAC Darth Revan
arms - TAC Darth Revan
tunic - OTC General Madine
legs - Evolutions Darth Bane




Braatos Human - A citizen of Braatos VII, fan fiction planet for the Rykrof Enloe series.  Kind of a dorkly looking guy.



head - Star Trek figure
helmet - SAGA2 Naboo Soldier
torso - Star Trek figure
arms - Star Trek figure
jacket - TAC Bespin Han Solo
legs - Star Trek figure




Braatos Muun - A citizen of Braatos VII, fan fiction planet for the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - SAGA San Hill
torso - Star Trek figure
arms - Star Trek figure
hands - SAGA San Hill
coat - Star Trek figure
legs - Star Trek figure




Braatos Brainiac - A citizen of Braatos VII, fan fiction planet for the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - Legacy Pons Limbic
scarf - Indiana Jones Temple Guard
torso - Star Trek figure
arms - Star Trek figure
hands - Legacy Pons Limbic
belt - Star Trek figure
legs - TAC Rebel Honor Guard




Braatos Arcona - A citizen of Braatos VII, fan fiction planet for the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
torso - Legacy Wioslea
biceps - Legacy Wioslea
forearms - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
tunic - Indiana Jones Cairo Swordsman




Quarren Separatists - My first submissions into a recent Yakfinities Customizing Challenge, Organic Separatists.  Figured if I was going to make one, might as well make two for a bit of army building.  These guys also made an appearance in a recent PN.



head - Legacy Quarren Soldier
rest - TAC Elis Helrot




NC-43 - An outdated service droid on Braatos VII, attempting to prove to his master that he is still worth maintaining... will show up in a future photonovel, I think.  Hell if I know, I forgot to put him in chapter 28.



head - SAGA2 Firespeeder Pilot backpack
neck - wood
rest - Clone Wars Animated IG Droid




Rans Nobble - Jedi Knight that will appear in the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - ROTS Tion Medon
neck - ROTS Tion Medon
torso - ROTS Agen Kolar
armor - TAC Kamino Clone Trooper
arms - ROTS Agen Kolar
hands - ROTS Tion Medon
tunic - ROTS Agen Kolar
legs - ROTS Agen Kolar




Teltuu Stabo - Another Jedi that actually DID appear in the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - POTJ Ellors Madak
torso - SAGA Outlander Club Obi Wan
arms - Legacy Evolutions Luke Skywalker
gloves - OTC Cloud Car Pilot
tunic - ROTS Agen Kolar
thighs - ROTS Agen Kolar
shins - VSTC Bespin Luke Skywalker




Darth Sidious - Finally a Darth Sidious custom of mine that I like!  I've tried different looks in the past, and never felt satisified.  I think I finally am... not film accurate, but this is definitely the look I wanted to translate into a figure.



head - Gentle Giant Bust Up Darth Sidious
hood - TAC Evolutions Darth Maul
torso - ROTS Prisoner Palpatine
robe - ROTS Prisoner Palpatine
legs - ROTS Prisoner Palpatine
shoulders - Indiana Jones Cairo Swordsman
arms - TAC Evolutions Darth Sidious
hands - TAC Evolutions Darth Sidious




Tame Heem - Just another version of this fan fic Ithorian Senator.  Nothing too hot.



head - POTF2 Hammerhead
torso - Indiana Jones Sallah
arms - Indiana Jones Sallah
hands - POTF2 Hammerhead
robe - ROTS Bail Organa
tunic - Indiana Jones Sallah
legs - TAC Roron Corob
feet - POTF2 Hammerhead




Tylin Gere - Another version of this photonovel character.  Admiral Tylin Gere was once the best friend of Rykrof Enloe, but they have had a falling out since the Clone Wars began.  Admiral Gere is feared by the Separatists and admired by his troops as he often leads his clones into battle himself.  This custom actually has already been ditched but I figured I'd show it since it has the brown stains removed using Goof-Off.



head - POTJ Boshek
rest - Comic Pack Janek Sunber (removed brown "dirt" with Goof-Off)




Attia - Another fan fic character for photonovel stuff.  Attia became disillusioned with the Jedi Order after the Battle of Geonosis, and later in the war her master was killed.  She slowly became seduced by the Dark Side of the Force, and was believed to have been killed by untrusting Separatists in the Bogden System when she attempted to become a student of Count Dooku.  She appeared at the end of Chapter 28 in my series.  Yay.



head - Evolutions Bultar Swan
torso - Evolutions Bultar Swan
tunic - Evolutions Bultar Swan
arms - Comic Pack Mara Jade
gloves - Comic Pack Mara Jade
legs - Evolutions Bultar Swan




Diorama Background Structures/Junk - To try and add some more "realism" for dioramas and photonovel background pieces, I've been looking at taking different pieces of Star Wars toys and repainting them.  The first two pics are pieces from the "Ultimate Lightsaber" kit in the Legacy line that is currently out - I used various pieces from it and repainted them.  I could see them on top of buildings or something, maybe exhaust pipes and whatnot.  Some people apparently think these are lame, but I like them for filling out background scenes in photonovels.

The bottom two pics are just repainted pieces from a few "junk vehicles" that I had saved for this sort of thing. 

The clone is just there for a sense of scale.












Civilian Speeder - This is actually a repaint/rework of an old commission I got from Owen D. several years ago.  I lent it out for the Ultimate Group Project but it got damaged in shipping, so it's been in a box for a while until I figured out what to do with it. 

So, rather than turn it into pure "junk" for a background piece, I figured it was still salvageable and I repainted it, removed the broken windshield, added a couple greeblies and added in a fabric backing to the back seating area.






Quinlan Vos - For a fellow forum member, Famine.  I've been telling him for ages that I'd make him a Vos custom, and finally got off my tail and did it.  Mainly I gave him much needed knee/ankle articulation and a rough beard, with a new nicks and cuts.  I hope he is ok with how it turned out.



head - Comic Pack Vos
arms - Comic Pack Vos
torso - Comic Pack Vos
hands - Comic Pack Vos
tunic - Comic Pack Vos
thighs - Comic Pack Anakin
shins - Legacy Trinto Duabo




Badoo Corba Terrorist - I figured I hadn't made one of these guys in a while, and now was the time.  Look for him in a future photonovel.



head - ROTS Plo Koon
scarf - Comic Pack Hett
torso - SAGA2 Sora Bulq
arms - SAGA2 Sora Bulq
hands - ROTS Plo Koon
belt - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
legs - Evolutions Dooku




Palom - Friend of Rykrof Enloe who helped Rykrof Enloe on Naboo when the Badoo Corba were hired to assassinate Padme Amidala.  Look for this version in a future photonovel.



head - Comic Pack Wedge
torso - McQuarrie Rebel
arms - TAC Yavin Guard
hands - can't remember
legs - TAC Yavin Guard




Jedi Master Iros - Jedi who has begun to question the direction of the Clone Wars, and is a close friend of Jedi Master Nolan, was inspired by the current Yakfinities, TEAMS.  Look for him in a future photonovel chapter.



head - X-Men figure
torso - Evolutions Secret Apprentice
tunic - Evolutions Secret Apprentice
arms - TAC Mace Windu
hands - TAC McQuarrie Rebel
legs - Evolutions Secret Apprentice




Jedi Master Nolan - Jedi who has begun to question the direction of the Clone Wars, and is a close friend of Jedi Master Iros, was inspired by the current Yakfinities, TEAMS.  Look for him in a future photonovel chapter.



head - Legacy Hoth Trooper
torso - Evolutions Luke Skywalker
scarf - TAC Elis Helrot
tunic - Evolutions Darth Maul
arms - Legacy Trinto Duabo
hands - VSTC Tusken Raider
thighs - Legacy Trinto Duabo
shins - Comic Pack Anakin




b]Commander Rykrof Enloe[/b] - The real reason I am still customizing these days, the Rykrof Enloe series... Commander of the 334th Siege Battalion and leader of a newly formed tactical assault force, he is determined to rid of the galaxy of the Badoo Corba terrorists once and for all.



head - SAGA Endor Rebel
chest armor - TAC McQuarrie Rebel
holsers - TAC Jango Fett
rest - Legacy Commander Faie




Captain Racker - Battle hardened soldier of the 334th Siege Battallion, loyal to Rykrof Enloe and a member of the tactical assault force. Has been in numerous battles with Rykrof since the early days of the war.




helmet - TAC Galactic Marine
pauldron - ROTS AT-TE Gunner
belt - Stormtrooper
rest - Legacy Commander Faie




Commando Drake - A veteran of the war who survived the Battle of Geonosis, Commando Drake joined the 334th Siege Battalion after his unit was crushed by Separatists in the outer rim. He is now a member of Rykrof Enloe's tactical assault force. His one goal is the success of the mission at hand.



head - SAGA2 Scorch
chest armor - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
rest - TAC Commander Neyo




334th Siege Battalion Troops - Basic troopers in Rykrof's tactical assault force, hand picked to lead an assault on the Badoo Corba base on Dantooine.



head - ROTS Clone Trooper
rest - Legacy BARC Trooper


And, here's a group shot -




These guys are already receiving major face lifts actually for the next photonovel chapter because these didn't turn out anything like I wanted.

Well that's it for now... comments/critiques are always encouraged... I suppose I could go post the last few photonovel chapters here as well.  Head on over to the PN section if you're interested.

Looking good as always Justin.  :)

I really like that new Snodd. The Darth Revan Torso is a perfect fit. I've been trying to get an extra one of those for quite some time now but I haven't had any luck finding one at a reasonable price.

Braatos Human - Even in a galaxy full of aliens I've always really liked background humans. This is a nice and simple custom but I'm really digging it as background dio filler.

Braatos Muun - I may have to pick up some Trek figures... I'm liking what you've been doing with them.

Braatos Brainiac - I love the update paint job on the head. The new wash really brings out the wrinkles and the red eyes look great. That scarf is a nice touch too.

Braatos Arcona - The skin color looks godd and the part use is good, but I don't particularly like the way the weathering on the robes turned out on this one. Some of the cracks/crevices seem too black while the surface areas look like they are dull and unweathered.

Quarren Separatists - Very nice. The sandals look good on him. The color choice is great.

NC-43 - I LOVE him. Great use of the firespeeder backpack as a head. I always like droids that use random greeblies as heads and they actually look like a functioning droid.  :)

Rans Nobble - Great Jedi. He is very TFU-ish.

Palpy - I like the skin a lot on him. Was that a repaint? I wasn't big one the green robes initially, but they are growing on me the more I look at him.

Teltuu Stabo - Another very cool Jedi. The Luke boots look great on him. I do have one *very* minor nitpick. Duros have longer fingers than humans. Maybe you could swap out the hands for Duros hands? Just chop the gloves off at the base of the hand and paint them to match the gloves. I just tend to be anal about getting the Hands/feet on my aliens to match.

Attia - Very cool. I like how you mostly used Bultar Swan and it looks nothing like her. The new skin tone is great.

Civilian Speeder - I think I like it that way even better. The fabric backing looks great. Sorry about the shipping...  :-X

Badoo Corba Terrorist - I like his body, but maybe you could mess with his head some so he looks less like Plo Koon in smuggler/terrorist gear? That's the only problem I have with him.

Palom - I like the casual look of the body, but kind of like the last figure I think he could use a different head, or at the very least some mods. Wedge is close enough to a main character that it is hard to use his head as anyone but Wedge and pull it off.

Jedi Master Iros - Gotta love the mutton chops.  :)

Jedi Master Nolan I really like how a lot of your Jedi have such a TFU/Clone Wars look rather than standard Jedi Robes. I can't stop looking at this guy as Billy Mays now...

Commander Rykrof Enloe - Not a bad job by any means on Rykrof... but how many suits of armor does he really need? I think that's more of a complaint about the PT/EU in general though. I can certainly understand variations and some variety along with different environmental specific armor, but I think that it gets out of hand sometimes and they make too many types of armor. Maybe that's just me though.

Andronicis - He's a little older, but I LOVE that figure. I think that the Durge head works perfectly. The paint color looks great. He almost reminds me of a KOTOR era Mandalorian. Good stuff.

Looking forward to the next Chewie update. I've been getting the customizing bug lately... :)

Wow, thanks for the reviews Ryan.  Much appreciated, I always enjoy any thoughts you have to share.   :)

On the Rykrof, yeah I've given him quite a few looks over the years.  Haven't used all of them of course, as there haven't been all that many sets of trooper gear that he's showed up in for photonovel stuff.  Here's the ones that have shown up since Phase 2 armor comes into play in the prequels -







The previous chapters before that, he was more in non-military situations.  After escaping from terrorists, he spent a few chapters out of service at home while the war was still waging -



But yeah, there have been a lot of different versions of him.  Going on around 5 years now worth of custom figures of Rykrof.  It's still a lot of fun for me though... and nothing was more cool than seeing what someone else made - an older version of Rykrof as a Rebel leader - I was floored.  DanoftheDead at Yakface made it in the current Yakfinities:





I remember an old Group Project here that was focused on Rykrof, which was a huge honor for me.  But seeing one made out of the blue, especially so well done really has me itching to look further down the road to maybe keep the series going a little longer than I had planned.

Your inventiveness never ceases to amaze me and I've really enjoyed seeing your work improve over the years. By now you must have more customs than basic figures.  :P

Chewie, I can't go back 181 pages but this page is...well so awesome that I have been blinded by it's awesomeness.

I love your work, the figures, the paint jobs, the photonovel stuff, all of it is just wonderful.

Thanks for the kind words my old JD friends.  Time for a long overdue update...

Justin Cook - Something I don't usually do, but heck, why not a self custom...  these were always fun in the old Casting Calls at http://www.ffurg.com and when I saw that a receont one was being extended, I had to join in the fun... this is just my take on myself if I was in the Star Wars universe... always carry a good blaster at your side!  I actually ended up liking this a lot for a look for Freelo in my PN series maybe, so at some point I could get use out of this for the PN series as well for him... could probably just do a head and hand swap and it would work ok for that too?



head - Evolutions Secret Apprentice
torso - Legacy Trinto Duaba
scarf - Comic Pack Hett
arms - TAC Tycho
belts - Legacy Trinto Duaba
legs - TAC McQuarrie Luke



Josaar Telth - Misguided Ishi Tib Jedi who will find a home in the Rykrof Enloe series, he is a close acquaintance to Syloth Narks.  Was inspired by the current Yakfinities, TEAMS.



head - POTF2 Ishi Tib
hands - SAGA Coleman Trebor
rest - Evolutions Secret Apprentice



Syloth Tars - Misguided human Jedi who will find a home in the Rykrof Enloe series, he is a close acquaintance to Jotaar Telth.  Was inspired by the current Yakfinities, TEAMS.



head - Legacy Captain Needa
hood - Legacy Emperor Palpatine
rest - Evolutions Qui Gon



Lekog Mir - Saurin citizen of Braatos IV, will appear in Chapter 31 of the Rykrof Enloe series.  Before anyone says it, I know the hands may not be right for a Saurin... maybe the feet aren't either.  I had this extra head though and liked this look, so I went with it.



head - SAGA Bossk
torso - Order 66 Master Sev
arms - Order 66 Master Sev
hands - Order 66 Master Sev
tunic - Legacy Brainiac
legs - Legacy Brainiac
satchel - Hasbro 3-3/4" Hobgoblin

hood - Legacy Commander Faie
torso - SAGA2 Hammerhead
arms - SAGA2 Hammerhead
tunic - SAGA2 Hammerhead

Sith Lord - My entry for a recent Yakfinities, The Old Republic.  I figure this could be one of the Sith that assault the Jedi temple in the trailer.

torso - Evolutions Secret Apprentice
torso gear - Legacy Comic Pack Palpatine
arms - Evolutions Darth Sidious
hands - Legacy Trinto Duaba
tunic - Evolutions Secret Apprentice
legs - ROTS Count Dooku



Grunda Dolma - My entry for a recent Yakface Group Project, The Cauldron from the original Clone Wars animated series.  This one turned out ok so I think I could use it in my photonovel series at some point.



head - TAC Po Nudo
hair - SAGA2 Sora Bulq, yarn, glue
torso - Indiana Jones Sallah
hands - TAC Po Nudo


Bothan Jedi - I figure this guy may gave served in the late era of the Clone Wars.

Taantar - This is a rework of an older custom, really a complete new recipe. Taantar is the leader of the Taantar Raiders, an elite force made up of mercs, assassins and bounty hunters.  The group is said to have ties to the Badoo Corba as well, and Taantar has a secret knowledge of an ancient technology that could bring the galaxy to its knees.



head - ROC SDCC Destro
armor - ROC SDCC Destro
torso - Evolutions Mandalore
arms - Evolutions Mandalore
legs - Evolutions Mandalore


Tylie Bata - Female Twi'lek who lives on Braatos VII, she is popular with the locals for her compassion for others and also is never one to speak out against those she feels are corrupt.   She'll show up in Chapter 31 of the Rykrof Enloe photonovel series, I think.  I kind of want to repaint her now though.



head - ROTS Aayla Secura
rest - Indiana Jones Elsa


Hiirka Femlanto - This lady also lives on Braatos VII, species unknown.  The locals believe she is a cross breed.  She usually keeps to herself and very little is known about her.  She'll show up in the Rykrof Enloe photonovel series.



head - Clone Wars Asajj Ventress
hair - ROC Baroness
rest - Legacy Beru Whitesun


Talsin Damnar - A Zabrak criminal who lives on Braatos VII.  Look for him to appear later on in the Rykrof Enloe series.

hands - unsure of origin
coat - ROC Rex Lewis


Chogg - A member of the Taantar Raiders, this brute reports directly to Taantar himself and has ties to the Badoo Corba terrorist organization.  He will appear soon in the Rykrof Enloe series.

hands - ROTS Polis Masan
tunic - TAC Obi Wan Kenobi
legs - ROTS Agen Kolar


PD-106 - Some of you may remember in the Rykrof Enloe series, a protocol droid who helped Rykrof escape from the Badoo Corba base back in Chapter 20... this droid will be back in the series before too long, with a whole new look.



head - EP1 C-3PO
torso - B.A.D. Death Star Droid
biceps - Clone Wars IG Droid
forearms - B.A.D. U-3PO
legs - B.A.D. U-3PO


Kiley Dirun - Made for  a recent Yakfinities, this lady will also play a role in the Rykrof Enloe series.  She is not fond of the Republic... for fun I also put together a photonovel-esque shot.





head - Legacy Princess Leia
torso - Indiana Jones Irene Spalko

rest - Evolutions Darth Nihilus



Nikto Traveler - Look for this guy to show up as one of many background characters in a future Rykrof Enloe adventure.  Or, perhaps this alien might have a line or two as well.

head gear - Legacy Giran
torso - TAC Mace Windu
arms - TAC Mace Windu
hands - Legacy Coleman Trebor

thighs - Legacy Podracer
shins - Legacy Ugnaught


Talen Hwoljik - My entry for the current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge, Light and Dark.  This is a fan fic Jedi who was gunned down and left for dead by his clones when Order 66 was issued.  He survived the ordeal and later emerged as a twisted being bent on taking Vader's place as the Emperor's apprentice.

Very cool.  Will you be updating the Rykrof Enloe series here too?

Yeah, I'll be posting more chapters here.  In the meantime, a small update with a handful of new customs...


Ishi Tib Terrorist - This rather simple custom was made for the next chapter in the Rykrof Enloe series.  And yeah, I know the hands are not accurate.  I just wanted to get this done with the parts I had available though and thought it looked ok.   



head - POTF2 Ishi Tib
hands - POTF2 Hammerhead
rest - Legacy Nikto Gunner


Saurin Terrorist - Another pretty easy one, and for my next chapter.



head - Legacy Saurin
hands - Legacy Saurin
torso - Legacy Giran
arms - Legacy Nikto Gunner
legs - Legacy Giran
feet - Legacy Saurin


2-1A - Medical Droid that I made for an ebay auction coming up to support a Collectors VS Cancer Fundraiser that just started at www.yakface.com - it's basically a repainted AOTC Research Droid from the SAGA line.








Early Rebels - These are for the http://www.ffurg.com Casting Call, Rebel Troopers.  I was going to only make one, but ended up liking the design to create three of them, and might use them later on in my photonovel series.  The last image is just a mock photonovel-esque shot.







heads - various
helmets - TAC Rebel Honor Guard
torsos - Legacy Major Pano
arms - Legacy Imperial Technician
hands - Random Clones
legs - Legacy Imperial Technician


Weequay Assassin - For the Rykrof Enloe photonovel series. This guy works for those pesky Badoo Corba terrorists.



head - Legacy Ak Rev
hands - Legacy Major Pano
bandolier - SAGA2 Hem Dazon
scarf - GI JOE Desert Viper
rest - Comic Pack Kyle Katarn


Zeedo Chissis - This Rodian also works for the Badoo Corba, and has appeared in a lot of photonovels.  He'll be back again soon, with a whole new look.



head - POTF2 Greedo
torso - Comic Pack Tol Skor
shoulder pads - Comic Pack Tol Skor
biceps - Comic Pack Tol Skor
forearms - ROTS Clone Trooper
hands - VOTC Greedo
belt - random fodder
thighs - Comic Pack Tol Skor
shins - VOTC Biker Scout


Camila Sterling - Jedi Paladin who survived Order 66.  Look for her in a future photonovel chapter.



head - SAGA Aayla Secura
bandolier - TFU Rahm Kota
rest - Comic Pack Sigel Dare


Feral CZ Droid - For the current Yakfinities, FERAL DROIDS.  This CZ droid model is old but an effective killer. At one time he was a respected secretary for Ithorian diplomats on Coruscant. He once made a protocol error and referred to the Emperor as "Senator Palpatine" and was promptly discarded on the far side of the planet for this breach of etiquette. He later awoke with no memory of his past, and only had a desire to kill sentient beings, thus found himself aligned with a growing army of feral droids on Coruscant.



left hand wires - TAC Nelvan Anakin
rest - TAC CZ Droid


Feral Gonk Droid - For the current Yakfinities, FERAL DROIDS.  This little guy has a grenade launcher mounted on his side. He has no memory of his past but enjoys sneaking up on unsuspecting beings salvaging for parts and blowing them to bits and pieces.



grenade launcher - greeblies/Clone Wars IG Droid head
rest - POTF Gonk

It's been quite some time since I updated here with some new work - I won't bombard this thread with everything all at once though... but here's some things that I had not shared here as of yet.


Nikto Citizen - This guy is pretty boring, but I wanted some more variety in my background aliens for diorama filler, so this is all he's supposed to be.



head - Legacy Nikto
hands - Legacy Nikto
torso - Legacy Barada Jedi
tunic - ROTS Count Dooku
legs - Legacy Barada Jedi



Battle Damaged Clone - Just wanted to make a clone who just got slashed by a light saber... not much to it, but I like how it turned out.



everything - Legacy Clone Trooper



Imperial Maintenance Worker - This guy works on Imperial City (Coruscant) after the Clone Wars... this was only thought of because I had an extra Willrow Hood and decided to try and make some good use out of him.



head - Spawn figure
hands - Star Trek figure
rest - Legacy Willrow Hood



Arctic Commandos - Not much to these, which is just the way I like it!  But I actually really like how they turned out...  these were for a past customizing challenge going on at http://www.echobaseforums.com - I was planning on using these bodies with some Galactic Marine helmets, but ended up with a couple of ARF Troopers, and realized their heads might work out.  It's not a simple head swap though, as I had to create custom neck posts... and no painting was required on these.



head - Clone Wars ARF Trooper
rest - Legacy Concept Snowtrooper



Barada Thug - This guy was kind of fun, I've been looking for a good alien head to use with the Giran hood, and this seemed to work out as well as anything I could come up with.



head - Legacy Barada Jedi
hands - Legacy Trinto Duaba
hood - Legacy Giran
rest - Target Geonosis Kit Fisto



Commander Bacara - I've never cared for Hasbro's attempts on him, because it seems like they should give him some weathering.  I actually went back and repainted an old Bacara I made several years ago, and this is the updated result... quite a bit better than what I did in 2005.



head - ROTS Commander Bacara
pauldron - ROTS Commander Bacara
kama - ROTS Commander Bacara
rest - ROTS SA Clone Trooper



EV Series Feral Droid - Another entry for a past Yakfinities Customizing Challenge, FERAL DROIDS. I really like how this one turned out.





head - POTF2 EV-9D9
torso - Legacy Lancer Droid
shoulders - Legacy B.A.D. Protocol Droid
forearms - Legacy Lancer Droid
legs - Legacy Lancer Droid



Swoop Biker Chick - For a past Yakfinities - I figure she's part of a gang on Coruscant or something.



right hand - ROTS Clone Trooper
left hand - Clone Wars IG-86
goggles - GI JOE figure
rest - Marvel Comic Pack Storm



Nerlam "Little Foot" Heem - Again, another Yakfinities entry, this Ithorian rides a swoop on Coruscant.  He's also going to play a part in the Rykrof Enloe series.  Note the small feet - tiny for an Ithorian.  I did that in case I need to squeeze this guy into ships, those big regular Ithorian feet can be troublesome sometimes.



head - POTF2 Hammerhead
torso - Legacy Saurin
biceps - Legacy Saurin
forearms - POTF2 Hammerhead
waist - TAC Tycho Celchu
legs - TAC Tycho Celchu
straps - TAC Tycho Celchu
feet - Legacy Quarren Warrior



Scavenger Droid - Just something that I thought looked kind of interesting when I cobbled the parts together, so I went with the look and painted it.



head - Legacy Rum Sleg backpack
neck - Cantina cup
rest - Legacy Darth Sidios Holo-Walker



Badoo Corba Henchman - Another character for the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - Iron Man 2 figure
torso - Legacy Giran
biceps - Legacy Giran
forearms - ROTS Clone Trooper
hands - VSTC Tusken Raider
legs - Legacy Giran



Kohmdor the Cyclops - Another character for the Rykrof Enloe series - works for the Badoo Corba.



head - Narnia figure
hands - POTC Pablo Jill
rest - Iron Man 2 figure



Saurin Jedi - This Jedi survived Order 66 - look for him to appear in the Rykrof Enloe series too.



head - Legacy Saurin
hands - Legacy Saurin
rest - Legacy Concept Ki Adi Mundi



Random Spacer - I had this helmet and wanted to find a body that it seemed to work for, I think this works out well enough.



helmet - Planet of the Apes monkey
head - Legacy Giran
rest - TAC Jump Trooper



Jedi Master Redwind - Here's how Master Redwind appeared in Chapter 31 of the Rykrof Enloe series right after Order 66 was first ordered, when he survived an explosion.  He didn't last long after that once he was tracked down by the clone troopers after him.



head - BBI figure
legs - ROTS Sae Sae Tiin
right hand - BBI figure
right bicep - ROTS Obi Wan Kenobi
rest - ROTS Crispy Anakin (had to use two separate figures as he has two right left arms from Anakin)



Jedi Master Kala Mly Shundi - This is how Kala appeared in Chapter 31 of the Rykrof Enloe series right after Order 66 was first ordered, as he survived the same explosion that Redwind did.  But unlike the other Jedi, he lived through the end of Chapter 31 - he is currently at large and is being hunted by the Empire.



head - SAGA Jempa
rest - Legacy Comic Pack Palpatine



Infestation - A droid that has been infested by an alien parasite, thought by Imperial scientists to be a possible cause for a Feral Droid outbreak in the Outer Rim.



tentacles - POTF2, SAGA2 Bib Fortuna
rest - Droid Factory protocol droid



Fatto - A chubby Toydarian merchant who resides on Coruscant.



head - EPI Watto
wings - EPI Watto
feet - EP1 Watto
hands - ROTS Plo Koon
scarf - Comic Pack A'Sharad Hett
rest - SAGA2 Podracer



Tredwell Droid - A droid that resides on Coruscant, known by some to be LC-TD; aka Luggage Carrier Tredwell Droid



head - POTF2 Flashback Tredwell
neck - unknown
torso - B.A.D. part
arms - B.A.D. parts
stem - POTF2 Flashback Tredwell
base - Legacy Jawa droid



Ithorian Merchant - Resides on Coruscant after the end of the Clone Wars.



head - SAGA2 Hammerhead
scarf - SAGA2 Hammerhead
torso - Legacy Zuckuss
arms - Legacy Zuckuss/SAGA2 Hammerhead
belt - Legacy Zuckuss
skirt - SAGA2 Kitik Keed'kak
legs - SAGA2 Hammerhead



Darth Vader - Post Clone Wars.



head - Gentle Giant Bust Up Darth Vader
rest - Legacy Darth Vader



Emperor Palpatine - Post Clone Wars





head - Gentle Giant Bust Up Darth Sidious
hands - ROTS Chancellor Palpatine
rest - SAGA Chancellor Palpatine



That's it for now, in a week or two I'll post another batch - any questions, comments, etc. are welcome.

Nice updates! Does this mean the Rykrof Enloe series is returning?

Thanks... all those in the recent post are over a year old... but I have at least 50 more customs since then to post, which I'll do before too long... as for the series - I do plan to pick it back up with a new series called The Enloe Trials... I've got part of the script done and proofed by a professional writer who is a friend of mine, and also quite a few customs completed for it.

It's the diorama work, photos, editing, and time that are the enemy now!

Here are some more past updates:


Rodian Thug - As seen on Raxus Prime in The Force Unleashed... there were a lot of these dudes all over one level, so I took some creative liberties here as I'm sure they wouldn't all look exactly the same. He's not what I was hoping for exactly, but overall, he looks close enough to the reference pic I guess.  This was for a past Yakfinities, Video Game Characters.



head - VSTC Greedo
torso - McQuarrie Snowtrooper
chest armor - GI JOE figure
kama - McQuarrie Stormtrooper
biceps - Iron Man figure
forearms - Iron Man figure
thighs - TAC Galactic Marine?
shins - Iron Man figure
feet - Iron Man figure



Idnum Ki - For a past Yakfinities, this is a Jedi who has lost his way in the photonovel series by forumite Drewton - called, "The Drewton Legacy" - here's my take on the character.



head - ROTS Ki Adi Mundi
torso - Comic Pack Quinlan Vos
arms - TAC Rahm Kota
hands - SAGA2 Firespeeder Pilot
tunic - Comic Pack Quinlan Vos
legs - TAC Rahm Kota
scarf - TFU Box Set Galen Marek


Coruscant Underground - This is still actually a bit of a work in progress, this was used as an environment for the final chapter in the Rykrof Enloe series.  It's almost purely made out of styrene. 







Nikto Politician - This guy showed up as a background character in Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - Legacy Nikto Gunner
hands - Legacy Nikto Gunner
robes - ROTS Captain Antilles
rest - Legacy Bail Organa



Rodian Politician - He also showed up in Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series.



head - TAC Pax Bonkik
hands - TAC Pax Bonkik
rest - TAC Po Nudo



Sewer Dweller - For Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series... but looking back, I don't believe he made the "final cut."



head - POTC Pablo Jill
hands - SAGA2 Hammerhead
feet - Legacy Quarren
rest - TAC Pax Bonkik



Drug Addict - For Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series... I think he was in the background somewhere, I can't even remember now.



head - Legacy Bespin Guard
hands - Legacy Bespin Guard
torso - TAC Biggs Darklighter
tunic - Comic Pack Lt. Sunber
arms - Comic Pack Xizor
legs - Comic Pack Xizor



Ishi Tib Renegades - These were intended for Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series... but again, were cut out.



heads - POTF2 Ishi Tibs
torsos - TFU Militia Elites
tunic - TFU Militia Elites
hands - POTF2/SAGA2 Hammerheads
arms - Indiana Jones Nazi Soldiers
legs - Indiana Jones Nazi Soldiers



Ladies of the Night - For Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series... I think only the blonde actually was shown in the background.



Lady #1
head - Indiana Jones Willie Scott (with real earrings to fill in the holes on the side of her head)
rest - Harry Potter figure

Lady #2
head - Evolutions Padme Amidala
rest - TAC Fireside Padme Amidala



Alien Street Walker - For Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series... I think he got cut too, geeze!

torso - Legacy Concept Ki Adi Mundi
arms - Legacy Concept Ki Adi Mundi
hands - SAGA Coleman Trebor
tunic - India Jones Mola Ram
legs - ROTS Plo Koon


Coruscant Ugnaughts - These two did make the cut for Chapter 32 in the Rykrof Enloe series.

head - POTF2 Ugnaught
tunic - 21st Century figure
rest - POTF2 Ugnaught

Ugnaught #2
head - Legacy Ugnaught
torso - Legacy Ugnaught
arms - Legacy Ugnaught
tunic - Legacy Ugnaught
abdomen - POTF2 Ugnaught


Zeedo Chissis - A photonovel character in the Rykrof Enloe series, inspired by a past Yakfinities, Photonovel Characters... made me decide to make a new version of him.  I ended up hating this figure and dismantled it.



head - POTF2 Greedo
torso - Legacy Trinto Duabo
arms - Legacy Trinto Duabo
hands - VOTC Greedo
belt - TAC McQuarrie Luke
legs - Legacy Bespin Guard



Thanks in advance for any feedback.  I'll post some more in a week or so.
