AS far as casting goes I wish I could, but i hav neither the talent or the facilities. I'd love to be able to cast stuff like he has. I waould save a small fortune  in JLU parts alone. If Glassman could make a how to thread Id be more than willing to give it a thorough read. Id love to know how the magic works. ;D


I've been trading a lot of PMs with Glassman on custom casting.  I've got a new set of supplies and I'm going to try to make some custom molds of a few items I've been putting together.  I'll try to document the whole process with some photos and start to build a "Newbie tries to Cast Parts" thread.  Then the experts can critique and add suggestions.

In the meantime Darth E, Check out my casting tutorial

BreantS, I think it would be a great idea, to do a "learning tutorial"

Anyway, back on topic, for now.

Here is My Clone Wars Cartoon Sasee Tinn in Clone Armor



And what custom of mine would be complete without a removable mask?


The cape was cut from general grievous.


RC is comming along. I should have him finished by saturday.

Dood! next time you do that, at least post a warning to have a floorjack handy! I think my jaw is stuck in the basement now! Awesome work on all of em. Saesee almost looks hasbro caliber (wait wait! I mean that in a GOOD way!)

OMG! :o

I am without words....Wow!....Wow! :o  <getting up off the floor>

Their perfect! I absolutly love RC. That head is so simple yet so cartoonish. All he needs is to be able to push in his chest and have him make a sound.

Amazing Saesee Glassman !!! i really love the removable helmet, that adds so much to the character. in the cartoon they somehow gave him back his cut horn (it grew back i guess) but i like how you left it cut, works better i think.

Roron looks even more impressive painted!!! once you get these carded they will be nothing short of genius!  :o

Thanks Bloody, I took the hasbro comparison as a compliment.

Phruby, thanks buddy,  I wouldnt go so far at to say perfect, but I am happy with them, for the
most part. I should have used a different base for RC, I dont like how his arms are wither up or in a action swing.
But5 it had a ready made jedi tunic so thats why i chose the base figure.

Rip, Saesee's Horn is cut on his cartoon figure. I guess they realized and fixed it when making the figure.
Or the cartoon was made before they decided to give him battle damage in the clone wars?
Thanks for the very kind words.

Thanks Kit,  Where have you been Hiding? I havent seen your name in a while... O have i just been missing your posts?

Darth E, thanks for the praise  man.

about the only gripe i have with the Clone Wars animated is the continuity issue with Saesee's horn being cut then "growing back" Glassman. i'm sure this was done to make sense with the movie which didn't follow the cartoon...but go figure. this is the pic from starwars.com where it shows his 2 full horns in the last season. that's why i said i liked yours better with the broken horn  ;)

I made the cape last night for my snowbunny Padme. I used a Adi Gallia hood combined with a Superman cape. (please forgive me Greg  :P) It's now painted up. I've got to add the strings and puff balls tonight and she will be complete.

Rip, Thats the picture i used to make mine...which remides me, I need to make his breather box.


Here is Roron Corobb painted.







Cards hopefully by the 27th which is the last day or the project.

Phruby, Round that puppy off on the corners.  Her cape is is more like a hooded cloak and there are no corners.
Dont forget the fur!  And thats still blasphemy!!

Very cool Greg. I like the little teeth on the side of his head. Very cartoonish. I forgot he had a breather box. I thought he looked great unpainted. This is even better.

Here is my finished Snowbunny Padme.

Phruby, thats a great Snowbunny.  I still think she looks a little too angry but given the base figure you used, it looks great.  I think the cloak came out very nice.  Is that sculpy on the fur?

Ya, I like her angry. It gives her an intense, "I'm going to kick your ass" look. That 'fur' is just a line of sculpty intended with a knife.

These last few entries have been nothing short of perfect. Great jobs Phruby and Glasman. :)

Greg- I really like the Saeee a lot you seem to have gotten the armor color pretty close to what it is in the cartoon, for some reason whenever I look at the cartoon I see it as more of a tannish than a grey buta little artistic freedom is always a good thing. That mask is top notch as well. Have you considered adding the littl echest box? The Roron Corobb is out of this world. I can't even think of anything that could be fixed, the sculpt is fantastic. This is one of my favorite figures of yours.

Phruby- that is one hell of an impressive custom too. I think this may be my favorite you have made as well. I really like the choice of head, you found a great one considereing they don't make a Padme animated figure. The cape and the poofball things turned out fantastic too,  I think sculpting them as opposed to softgoods turned out to be a really good choice. Another thing I'm liking is the smooth paint job, it looks like this figure just rolled out of the Hasbro plant in China. :)
