Good base body there Phruby!  I've been wanting to do an X-Wing version oh him someday but I have a long way to go in the series before I can get something like that done, even though I did make that Hoth version too.

Did someone say X-wing Version?  Here is a custom I did a while ago for another project, but I think it works just as well as a X-Wing Rykrof.   It uses the Kyle Katarn head instead of  the Endor Trooper.  What do ya think?

That looks pretty good too.  The Katarn head is a little bigger but still seems in line with it.

Those can be used.  I can see the one on the right be used as a re-animated zombie version of Rykrof or a Rykrof Clone experiment gone wrong.

Hmmmm, you're right about that. He could make a really good Dr. Ezavan. The POTF2 head sculpt is not very good.

LMAO!    ;D

Seriously though, good job Brent in starting to make casts.  It's not something I've ever tried or even have the guts to!  But really that on the right could pass for Dr. Evazan.

The big problem with the "Cast on the right" as its being affectionately referred to is that it is mostly hollow.  What happened is as I was pouring the resin in it got caught on the narrow part of the neck peg so the head only filled up about halfway.  I kind of squished it around as it was curing and when I pulled it out - that was the what was left.  I'm might still have some fun with it for the project!

When that happens brentS, dont take it out the mold.
Let it sit overnight and harden. Most of the time you can pop them out without crushing them.
Then they are fine, just hollow.

I don't think I even had enough in there to completely cover the inside of the mold.  The deformed cast actually looks better in that photo than in person  ;)

I love the idea of making our own version of Rykrof!

I'll be posting some WIP pics tomorrow of mine.

Can't wait to see everyone else's take!

OK, I've got my "Rykrof" head... just need to decide what the heck to make with him.  ;)
