i cut the arms at the seams on the Hasbro body to get the hands out, same thing with the feet. i just can't see any other way to get them out. sure it damages the Hasbro body but i'm not using those so i could care less. i end up cutting the seams on the Dragon arms and legs too and modifying the clone hands and feet to get them to fit in then super glue the arms & legs shut. you can't tell its been done and everything holds together and is still posable. hope this helps.

Wow! That is an incrediable 12" obiwan. Its even early!  ;) Fantastic job. I like how he mirrors the 4" version. The folds in the fabric and the cape look great. Very professional.  Even the buttons on the sholders are just the right size. The face is well painted. I like the highlights in the hair. Very impressive.

Yeah i have to echo all of Phrubys comments.
Excelent work on this figure.

I really liked your 4", but i love the 12" one.

Great attention to the little details. Paint apps are superb!

Great stuff Rip!

Thanks for the nice comments Phruby, Glassman & Richard. i had a lot of fun making this 12" Kenobi and it presented a lot of different challenges that i really hadn't faced in the smaller scale. i'm working on a couple of other 12" Jedi and i have to say that although there is more work involved i do enjoy it a lot. i can't wait to see everyone's completed work for this project.

Ripley this is by far one of the sweetest 1\6 scale customs I have ever seen. Excellent job. The cloak and armor are flawless. I love the little mini-me shot that was great. ;D They look identical.

Mine was nephews and cousins birthdays, and my wife's and my anniversary, and valentines day last week. I Could have had them done by now... but i had to do a bit here and a bit there...

Anyway, here are my progress pics.  I will paint them and hopefully card them by next weekend.
Since its quick drying, I sculpted with Plummbers Epoxy putty for both of these.

Here is Cartoon Tinn in clone armor:

He is a cast of Crtoon Clone Body and Right arm, Cast Tinn head adn sculpted left arm from my cartoon clones.




Second Is Cartoon R Corobb

He is cast from cartoon Obi wan body parts, Cast vintage Hammerhead hands, sculpted head and feet.
Since its quick drying, I sculpted this with Plummbers Epoxy putty.

Glassman..... WOW.  Those look amazing so far.  Can't wait to see the finished product.  Do you do all your work on cast parts now?  It doesn't seem like you ever paint over a hasbro part.  What (if any) benefit does this bring?

Those are incredible Greg! That Hammerhead is going to kick ass. They are totally keeping in the toon style. I think these are going to be some of your best toon work.

The parts are extremely cheap from what Ive heard. 16oz. bottles of resin if your good at casting can make a large amount of stormies and even more ewoks. According to Delaton(Ash) at FFURG.
