That turned out great!  I haven't seen the animated CW figures in a long time, but if I come across a Yoda, it's yours!

There are only 2 things that I would add to this steed, in terms of painting - The reference pics show that his belly/underside is a lighter brown than the "top" of the steed, I think it would look really cool if you put on a bit of lighter brown paint on the underside.  This second point is probably not a good idea since it's the animated version, but I think it might look cool if you drybrushed the tail a bit - not too much, but maybe a few hightlights.

Anyway, those are very minor points and your steed looks great as it is.  Very ambitious and I think he turned out great!  I can't wait to see Yoda riding around on that steed.
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.

About the belly, it IS in a lighter grey. But you're right, you can't see it very well in the pics. Even the lower side of the tail has a lighter brown on it. About the weathering, I tried it, it looked "off". Didn't fit the fig.

Thanx for the comments you guys! I try my best.

Kit,

Saw this at Rebelscum as well... it's GREAT.  When I saw the first pictures I really didn't think it was going to work. It came out looking dead on though. You gotta get a picture of Yoda either riding it or standing in front of it.

Kit, I'm so sorry I forgot to post here. This is a excellent piece of work. It is always cool to see customs that are a little outside the box. I love the sculpting you've done. The pose on this guy is killer. And I thin the inclusion of a peg on the saddle is genius. The paint app is perfect, the lines are very crisp.  I also really like the little base you made for him. Little things like that can make customs look really professional and take them to the next level. I see how you tried to make the fur lighter on the belly but I think you could try to lighten it a bit, it is fairly noticible in the cartoon. Awesome work, I may have to try this someday! Good luck on finding a Yoda for him.

C'mon guys, this deserved more than 3 posts. :)

Thanx Sith Lord Chaos!

It seems the "smaller" forums have the best and most helpfull replies on customs. On big sites mostly I get replies like: "Cool!" "Very cool!" or "Awesome!"
 
You guys have given me critiques I can work with. Thanx a lot

SotE Luke in Imperial Guard disguise
« Reply #37 on: October 31, 2005, 07:05 AM »
Hi,

I've been working hard on some customs lately. I've build about 5 Street Fighters and am working on verious projects as we speak. Because of these projects, an older fig got pushed aside. Today I took the time to finish it up. After I'd built the Snoova update, I wante a new Luke. And here he is:

Recipe:
Head: SAGA Luke bespin
Torso: GI Joe Sci Fi
legs, arms, skirt: ROTS clone commander
Staff: scratch built

Nice custom. Your staff appears to be scratch-built from the Grievous Bodyguard staff and 2 wall anchors… am I right?

You're right about the wallanchors, the stick is just a piece of plastic I had lying around. Thanx for your comment!

That is excellent, KF! I always liked the old SOTE Guard, but did feel it was a little out-of-place looking with other Imperials. This change would make him fit right in!

And I dig the Sci-fi torso. It looks so close to Clone armor - I actually thought it was a Clone torso with a lot of work done. :)

Keep up the good work.

Wow, what a great idea, and executed perfectly!  Very creative KIT FISTO!  This would be a great resculpt for Hasbro to do.

Really a great use of parts.  The kilt sets of off and really is a great addition.

Great figure very clean and crisp paint work and the staff is weathered perfectly.

That's also probably the toughest Luke has ever looked.   :)

Yeah,probably due to the weight of the staff?! ;)

Excellent Custom Kit Fisto!
