Hey don't worry about the cup, I was just messing with ya. I'm sure they will show up here sooner or later.

Try and convince your cat to let Bow Legged Clone and Bow Legged Obi-Wan to ride it's back in a diorama. ;)

All of them look very nice.  I love that Ishi Tib.

Don't know if you've ever done this, but on a couple of Gamorreans I drilled holes in their right hand so they can hold weapons with that hand too.  It adds a lot of variety.

Good job on all of these. 

 :P

I don't really know how chipped it was.  I just think it would look cool.

For a lot of my EU customs I guess I kinda break the rules and go beyond what the official look is supposed to be.  Keeps me from trying to be too perfect and helps cover up my lack of ability in some areas.   ;)

This is what happens when I'm left to my own devices for the afternoon.  ;)

Obviously, I have no skill in photoshop. Be kind.   :P

That looks cool!

I wish I had photoshop, I could really, really use it in my photonovels.

The lighting's wrong, and the clones are WAY too bright from the flash, but since I've never tried anything like this before, I think it came out a bit of all right.

Maybe I'll do a photonovel one day... :P

Another custom
« Reply #37 on: April 6, 2005, 04:50 PM »
Here's another one I did once I bought my dremel. Man, I love that thing!

It's Baron Soontir Fel, from the X-Wing: Rogue Squadron novels and comics.



And here's one sans helmet.



I used a Dutch Vander body, OTC Tie Pilot arms and helmet (dremeled out to fit over Fel's head) and a GI Joe Shipwreck head. I just noticed that his helmet's a little dusty because he's been on a shelf for a few months.  :o

Nice deal. I gather that this guy is a bad Imperial? He doesn't strike me as very much of a good guy. Awsome use of parts. I might copy your idea some day.

Yep, this looks outstanding... definitely one of the best versions of him that I have seen!

Looks like you did a great job on the dremeling out the helmet!

Thanks guys.

I knew what parts I wanted to use on Fel for a long time, I just never had the right head...until that Shipwreck figure came along. Then it all fell into place.

Not sure how many helmets you guys have dreemeled, but do you find it as nerve wracking as I do? I've puntured through a Mandalorian helmet and a Royal Guard helmet in my day...so the anxiety is always there.  :o

Famine: Fel is the Empire's greatest pilot (excepting Vader, of course) but eventually left the Empire and joined the New Republic. Later, he disappeared, and turned up in Chiss space working with them against some threat Thrawn predicted would threaten the Galaxy. (Which turned out to be the Yuuhzan Vong.)

Here's some more customs I dug out. These were figures I did early in my customizing hobby, as you can tell by their simplicity.  :D

A Mon Calamari senator. All those Lott Dodd's warming the pegs are good for something, at least.

Hahaha....Great minds think alike! :)
Nice work man.

Ha! Not only the same body, but almost the same paint scheme!

Nice work!

Yep - I was thinking that somewhere I had seen another version of that.

Both are well done and make for very convincing senators.

I kind of like his brown robed senator more than mine. I went with blue because I figured coming from a water world, Mon Cal's would be partial to the color. :D
