Brents that is awesome, I never would have thought to make a droid out of rykrof. Good Job he looks lke hes a hard working REbot.

and Travis hurray you did a 3 3/4 custom, good job it looks really really good, I'd say get some paints and join in with us 3 3/4 ers and continue doing lego ones aswell.

Diddly- That sharpie will probably turn purple, so watch out and try to paint it. DO NOT LET NEAR WATER. That enduces purplizing. Its actually a very nice custom though. I think I'm gonna use an Obi head now.

Yeah, the 3 pack clone I tested the sharpie on turned purple, but the Obi head has not. I'm keeping it away from water, as I'd like to try it out on some other bodies.

And Brent, that's a very original idea! It looks great.

Wow, Brent!  That is a really cool idea.  Definitely outside the box, but what a neat idea!  Very cool.   :o

Wow, great update guys.

Brent - I already replied in your thread, that droid Rykrof is freaking cool.  Very, very different than anything I envisioned anyone making.  Great to see an original idea like that, I love it.  Wow, it's kind of creepy.   :)

Diddly - I didn't realize you've never make a 3-3/4" scale custom.  What a great start to that for you.  That's a great version of Rykrof.  I'm surprised at how well the head turned out, I never thought an Obi Wan head could look that close to what Rykrof looks like.  Great job using a sharpie.  I made one kind of similar to the whole Hoth idea not too long ago -

Cool Robo-Rykrof Brent. He reminds me of that robot in Logan's Run that tries to freeze Logan before they get outside. What was that robot's name?

Logan's run... Ha, havent seen that in years.
Brent, that is a great idea. Very nice work.

You can used that deformed head cast you had as some sort of incomplete clone, like
in the 6th day, at the end when the govenor inturupted the process...

Diddly, that is a great subbstitution for the rebel trooper head. Worked out great.

Phruby: The Logan's Run robots name is "Box." Funny thing is, he has an X on his chest that's exactly the same as Microsoft's X-Box.   :)

Glassman, Chewie, Jeff, and smartypants - thanks for the comments on Rykrof. I'm glad you guys like the the "Out of the Box" Rykrof custom.

I've got one more planned for the mutant head  ;)

I'm guessing that Yestertoys is no longer a company.  I placed an order with them on March 2nd, and received an invoice in my email but was never charged.  I tried calling them and got a voicemail.
