Wow, you really love dead things. Are you a mortician, or a taxidermist, or something?


With all jokes aside, I think that this looks really awesome. I've always liked seeing your dead things, great job on this one. I think this is the best one yet.

Re: Cold Dead TIE Pilot Hurdleing Through Space

Here is my first Custom of 06'

Remeber that scene in "The Empire Strikes Back",when that Poor TIE Pilot is sent Hurdleing, On Fire, through Space after his Fighter is Destroyed by an Asteroid. Well this is that Guy. LMK what you think.
 
   
   
 


Holy Mother of all Gods!  Fritz - you've made some extraordinary "dead" customs, but this one takes the cake.  How in the world did you do this??

Man, that is just plain sickly awesome.  Your details in these takes my breath away.  He looks REAL.

Maybe you might want to make one of a Clone Pilot from ROTS too!

 :P

Thanks for all the Great feedback Guys!

This was a tuff one. It took me a while to figure out which parts would work best for this Custom since the only peice of the TIE Pilot I had to work w/ was the helmet.

I sorted through hundred of Figures and Parts in my Fodder Bin and Finally Chose the Following Parts for the Recipe.

Helmet>Saga TIE Pilot
Body>AOD Deadite
Jack Boots> POF2 Garidan
Chest Plate>Baroness Chest Armor Packed w/ Spy Troops Lady Jay
Chest Box>Kit Bashed from COPRPS Assessorie
Air Hoses>Various Chap Mei Space Quest Figs.
Belts & Straps>Spy Troops Sgt. Air Borne & a Heavy Machine  Gun  amo belt.
Left Glove>Billy from JP
Ragged Flight Suit>You Don't want to know
Imperial Shoulder Patch>Erikstormtrooper's Imperial Gallery

1st  Hollowed out the Helmet w/ Dremel
2nd  Cut the Blast Hole and cracks in Helmet w/  Exato Blade
3rd  Super Glued Air Hose to Helmet
4th Positioned Deadite Skull in Helmet
5th Ground the Breast off The Baroness Chest Plate w Dremel
6th Cut CORPS Space Assessorie to Desired Size w/ Wife's Meat Cleaver for Chest box
7th Super Glued Chest Box to Chest Plate
8th Drilled 2 Holes Into Chest Box for Air Hoses
9th Super Glued Air Hoses into Holes in Chest Box
10th Cut Feet and Left Arm of of Deadite w/ Exacto Blade
11th Cut G/aridans Boots Off w/ Exacto Blade
12th Cut Left Glove off of JP Billy w Exacto blade
13th Dremeled Holes Into boots and Gloves Large Enough to fit Deadite's Stubs
14th Pushed Glove and Boots Onto Deadite's Stubs ( If the Holes are Just right no Glue is needed to keep the gloves and Boots on)
15th Apply Shredded Cloth to Deadite Body useing Superglue
16th Super Glue Straps to Deadite Body
17th Primer Chest Plate and Chest Box Piece and let Dry (You may Skip this Step but I did it Because the Chest Box, Chest Plate and Hoses were all different colors and wanted them to come out More uniform in color after painting w/out using to many coats)
18th Put Chest Plate Piece on Deadite Body It should fit Snug and not Require any Glue
19th Place Insignia Sticker on Shoulder that still has Some of the Flight suit Covering it
20th Paint to Desired Level of Detail

I hope this is Helpful

Man, this is definitely one of my favorite customs ever!  Everything about this figure is perfect!
I love your use of parts - great choices considering you only had a TIE helmet. 
I really want to know what that sg flightsuit is - is it pantyhose?  How did you make it?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Each dead trooper tops the previous one, I can't wait to see the dead stormtrooper.  So far the endor trooper and the tie pilot are my 2 favs.  Great job on all of them.

That is serious amount of work you did on your tie pilot. You used so many small parts to get such great detail. I love how the uniform looks like fabric. I can't believe is 3 3/4".

Nice, a WIP pic for us to see how you do this! 

I think a Stormtrooper is a natural choice, good idea using that Luke body since it has a unique "dead" pose to him already.  Can't wait to see how this one ends  up.

Awesome Fritz!  The pic of him in the sand is downright gruesome!  I love the Jawa scavengers  ;D
The best part of this piece is the rigor mortus left arm.  The way the hand is positioned is perfect.

Very Cool.  One question, that last photo of stormie (with his helmet half blown off).  How did he survive that injury and remain standing  ;)
