Cool, great helmet sculpt.  Is it just the angle of the pictures, or are the helmet antennae not attached in some of the pics?  I'm pretty sure it's just the angle...

What is a clone kit?  I've heard of Bantha5, does he send you a helmet and stuff?

Very nice job! Is that clone 6 or 41?  I have that kit also. It will be a clean version when I get around to putting it together.

Indeed, I used a 6 for cody, mostly because of the removable sholderpatch.

For the Neyo, I'm planning on using a nr 41, IF i can find one...

Nice work - I really love that medic, especially (have we determined if that is indeed a medic?) - that's a lovely kit, as well.

Newbie here I've been coming to JD and reading the posts and the news for about 2 months and well I had to join up today just to tell you Kit; those are pretty awesome.  How do you get in contact with Bantha to order or trade for those.  I just started customizing so until hasbo comes out with these guys will definately do.

Well, I don't want to promote other sites, but I found a topic about the kits at the rebelscum.com forums, at customizing. There you can contact him.
But I should warn you, the requests for these kits have been off the scales. So Bantha ismaking as much kits as he can but, can't keep up with the demand... You can try though.

Yoda's Kybuck steed
« Reply #28 on: July 29, 2005, 07:51 AM »
I'll in the middle of my Holliday period, and I wanted to try something new. I got inspired by Owen's amazing work on creatures from EU series like the CW cartoons, and wanted to do these myself. But when I was exploring his site, I didn't have the curage to start working on those big ones. So I went looking for something a bit smaller.

That's how I got the idea to start building a Kybuck steed (didn't even know the creature's name untill I re-read Yoda's databank entry at SW.com)

I made pics of most of the diffirent building stages. So here we go:

1st stage: getting the stuff together. I mostly used a white (dries when exposed to air) sculpting paste (not in the pic) + some construction materials:

 

I started repositioning the pair of Jolly Jumper (Lucky Luke's horse) legs and building a base with sticks and balsawood. Then I started sculpting on the head (separated from the body) and the body itself. I used the back legs of the little horse as front paws. ( a lof of dremmeling had to be done)
Some ref. pics:

 

After the sculpting was done of moth parts, I put the head on the body and glued his sadel in place:

 

Then I primed him with a spray paint; grey matt

 

After a second layer of primer, I sanded al of the remaining rough edges of, And the real painting could begin:

 

The finishing touch (straps, sadelstrap and visors) i did with grey electrical tape and a blue screen from LEGO:

 
 

I also added a peg in the saddle so Yoda can ride his trusty steed. The one problem: I don't have a Cartoon yoda to repaint into the correct colors...

So I might as well post it here:
 Who can help me find a loose CW cartoons Yoda? Please HELP!

Wow, somebody slap me!  This is awesome... a very unique custom that is so different that what we usually see.

This is truly great and creative.  I've thought about how cool it would be if they made this. 

I doubt I'll ever attempt this project, but if I do I personally would probably try and make a non-cartoon version.  But your version is wonderful.  I love it.

Good luck getting that Yoda that you need.
