What's a guy got to do to get you all to leave feedback nowadays? Used to be I could just post some pics and within the next few hours you'd have lots of helpful feedback from all kinds of other customizers. Now I post 4 or 5 updates in a row and get zero feedback on the last 4, within a time period of about 3 days. I'm not trying to make you come and say good job, I'm trying to get people to come give advice, feedback, ask questions, and give constructive critism... but that person who says it looks good is welcome too ;)

The early part of the week is the best time for people to commnet when you post towards the end of hte week, people are busy at work, and I just skim at the end of the week mostly.

That  Drawing is incredible, it looks great,  so does the punisher mando. Looks really cool I'd say use olive greens for the green and some darker colors for camo, and then weather accordingly.

Yea, I understand but some of these were posted earlier in the week. As for the drawing, it's not mine. someone did it on an art site. Thanks for your post though  :)

I gotta say, that is one sweet looking Cody. One of the best ive seen actually.

He looks like he's been through hell and back, as he SHOULD. Excellent work my man.

Excellent paint job on that Punisher Mando. HTe only thing that really throws it off, at least in my opinion, is the body. Its no offense to your skills, thats just a horrible body. All I want to know is what happend with that fig? All the rest look great, why did old Frank get the shaft?

The details that you put on it are great the chest armor is especially well done.

the Dooku looks good too. Id call that one " Sith Training Dooku" ;D
The Ki ADi arms work well with that body. The design is pretty good on this one.

Keep em coming.

Cool Cody and Fem-Mando.  the Punisher is great to.  I like the Pilot Mando, Punisher Mando and the Fem Mando more then your other Mandos because they are not just repaints (but the repaints are clean and well done) so to me it looks like more effort was put into them as their paint apps are great to.

When is your next updat for the Mando Dropship?  I am dying to see how it'll turn out.

Palps:Do you use Darkside
Vader:Yes master
Palps:In time you will learn the true power of the darkside
Vader:Which is

Thanks both of you :) I'm accually still working on the mando ship. I've got this hole week to customize though so the next update should be Wednesday maybe? After that you all can help me name the ship and see what kind of mando saying i should put on it maybe. Then I'll weather it and it'll be done  8)

Whew I'm glad its the beggining of the week so maybe I'll get some more feedback :P

BTW, OT kinda: Star Wars Empire at War is so awesome in space battles.


And Ennis as for why I used the punisher body, I just thought the head would look cool and I wanted to try sculpting mando armor on a very articulated body.

Another Mandalorian I did. This was just a simple one to use of the old mando body I had in my fodder bin. I added some gear from a dollar tree figure medic, so maybe this is a mandalorian medic? Oh and incase you couldn't tell, the mando isn't really as bright as it looks in the pictures... the flash kind of screwed them up. Maybe some new pics tomorrow in the sunlight. :) Comments VERY welcome.

I like all the gear you added, but i think the red color is too bright for a Mando. I would suggest weathering him a little.

Like I said, it's the flash. I've weathered him with some scratches, black paint, and metal colored paint already so I think that's enough. Thanks though :) btw rorron check your pms.

i like this mando. all the extra gear goes really well with the figure. the weathering looks good, and though the red isn't a traditional mando color, i think it works really well for this figure. good job.

it'd be cool to see a mando team, like seals, ithink this figure would be cool in some type of group like that. medic, explosives, sniper, engenieer, communications, weapons, team leader, ect....

I think Jedistyle is on to something. It would be a great crew for that dropship you made.

I kinda like this guy, Im such a sucker for black and red.I think a couple more pouches like say on his chest or so and maybe some kind of symbol would make him stand out more as a medic. But thats just what I'd do.

Its ironic actually I have a mando myself that is almost exactly this color scheme. It's really wild because its the exact same figure too. I've never posted him though. So aparantly great minds think alike.

Good job.

If it is the flash, then I would suggest natural lighting for your pictures. Other than that I like this Mando.

Re: CommanderKorbra' Customs - New Mando Medic pics, Update June 28

Quick Update, Mando ship done and about to be dullcoated. The second mandalorian in the Mandalore vs Mandalore picture is almost done. And finally, you sadly wont be hearing anymore about my female mandalorian untill the end of summer. By that time I (hopefully) will ahve had enough time to cast her 4 times(each time with a few variations) and paint her 4 different schemes. I'll then have a 4 person squad of goodlooking female mandalorians :P I think it'll be really cool if my casting stuff comes in and everything goes as planned.


Pics of dropship soon.
