I like the cantina flies, especially the Mon Cal bartender.

Skirata is looking really good. What head did you use? It looks repainted, and really cleanly, especially with the stubble. Good job, Double-D!

Thanks guys!

Chewie/Hyourattai: The Skirata head has the base coat on his hair, (it was originally brown) but there's a lot more drybrushing to be done before it's finished. The head comes from a military figure. As soon as I saw it, I thought it was close to Skirata as I was going to get. (In the latest insider, Skirata looks a lot like Ed Harris with more hair...too bad there are no 3.75 inch Ed Harris figures.) The only thing I'm unsure about is what waist-piece to give him, although I'm leaning toward Djas Puhr for the holsters. Then I'll have to make him a couple of Verpine Shatter Guns. After this version I plan to make Kal in his Mando armor.

Ruprecht: Thanks, I have a lot of fun with the dialogue too. Another one of those things that makes me wish I had time to do a photonovel.  Not that the photonovel would be about insulting Sarah Jessica Parker...but it could. :P

Photonovels are so hard to find time for Aaron... but if you ever make one I know we'll all be applauding what you do.

Thanks Chewie. It would be a lot of fun, but I'm sure it's more work than I can even imagine at this point. The sheer amount of work that goes into your PN's always blows me away.

I'll be lucky to have time to crank out a few customs this week!

Cool set of bar flys there. The joke is prefect and so true. Remember when she was on Square Pegs?

Gday mate

The Cantina files bartender really looks good he's been put together great.

Commando and Kal Skirata - the commando is kick arse the paint apps are simply awesome and the copper looking chest plate brings it all togther. Kal looks good so far can't wait to see the new legs but that head looks great the detail on him is excellent.

Phruby: Do you ever wonder whatever happened to the other people on that show? I know Tracy Nelson ended up on some "Murder She Wrote" type show with Mr. Cunningham, but where did everyone else disappear to? And out of all of them, how is it SJP continued on? It's not like she had any more star power than the rest of them.

Man, enough "Square Pegs" talk...it's making feel like I'm taking crazy pills.  :P

Kliqfan: I try to stay away from there because that place really sucks, but I will need to pick up some books this week, so I should be by. Sorry to hear about your family, I hope there's some good news on the horizon.

hemble: As always, thanks for the kind words. I hope to have Skirata finished this weekend, along with a Mandalorian inspired by aeseven's work. I'm really swamped with scripts this month though, so my only customizing time comes during writing breaks.

Awesome customs, DD!

FYI, Amy Linker from "Square Pegs" retired from acting and, sadly, Merritt Buttrick, who also played David Marcus in "Star Trek" 2&3 died of AIDS in 1989.

Quazar: Not that you mention it, I remember Buttrick in Star Trek and hearing he died of AIDS. I don't know why I never connected him as the same actor from Square Pegs.

All right, a quick update. As I said earlier, I don't have much free time lately, so one figure is all I managed to get finished this weekend. This Mando was (obviously) heavily inspired by aeseven's awesome Mandalorians. As a matter of fact, I ripped him off, pretty much.   :P







The figure is a lot less shiny in person, but you know how flash phtography goes. Hope you guys like it!

TERRIFIC Mandalorian, but I have one small complaint, I don't like the light blue color of the visor.

But the rest of the painting is fantastic.  Very well done.

I actually like the visor tint, I think it adds something unique to him.

Overall a very well done custom DD - from parts combinations to the paint.  At first I didn't like the painting of the back of the kama a lot, but now it's growing on me, it almost looks like blood smears from one of his kills.

Great update!!!
