WHOA!  I love this custom!  It turned out really nice, excellent use of parts!  Normally G.I. Joe parts don't mesh that well with Star Wars, but that torso is perfect.  Perfect job all around!  You definitely need to make the Lando version now!
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.

My 2nd Buggs Fett
« Reply #47 on: November 18, 2005, 08:05 AM »
Hi,

Some of you might remember a Casting Call or custom group   project at Rebelscum.com (I think it was put up by Master Phruby) some time ago on these boards with the theme: Cross-overs.
Thanx to Glassman6 back then, who provided me a Buggs Bunny figure, I was able to enter and built my very own Buggs Fett custom. There were some Boba Fett fans out there who wanted to buy my custom, but I got to attached to it and turned them all down.
Untill a month ago. I got the opportunity to showcase some of my customs at a local Convention and a German fan offered me a lot of money for the custom. I cracked, I needed the cash for the merchandise. So I sold...
But when I can home after the Con, I was heartbroken to not be able to add the Buggs back to my collection.
A few weeks ago, I found a NEW buggs figurein an old store in Barcelona (Spain) and when I got home, started to work on a new edition emediately.

Long story short, here he is:

 

 

I updated the 2nd version quite a bit. I gave this version a cape, better backpack and more detailed paint job. If you want a reference of my original custom, here you go:

I commented about this one over at FFURG and really like this custom. It's a big improvement over the old one. The jet pack is my favorite part.

These are always hilarious but very well done.  Bravo!  I wouldn't know where to start with something like this... I'd probably never have the motivation to try a non-3-3/4" custom.

Thanx every body! The work that weant into it was more than worth it if I look back at the figure, every time I crawl into bed. :)
Thanx for the great replies ;)

Part 1: Mandalorian Sniper
« Reply #52 on: April 15, 2006, 04:21 PM »
Seeing aeseven7 's awesome mandalorian customs and after ordering 4 of glassman6's superb Mando-helmet casts, I just had to build my own team. I originally planned to use VOTC boba fetts, and ordered 2 on Ebay. But I couldn't wait to start building and made this one.

He mostly GI Joe and Jango Fett Saga parts, and a lot of milliput, paint and Chap Mei acc.

My sniper of the team. Don't have a name yet. Suggestions are allways welcome!

Please let me know what you think of this first team member:

That is Sweet!

It kind of Reminds me of the Space Marines from "Aleins" for some reason. Was the Eye Piece Part of the Original Glassman Caste, or did you add that little bit yourself?


Awsome Work, Keep it Up!

The eye piece I added myself. The glassman casts are ordinary Mando helmets.
Thanx for the feedback Fritzkrieg!

Kit you should make a consolidated thread here with all your awesome work it in it.  You've made some really good customs and this one is no exception.  Awesome assembly of parts using multiple toy lines here and casts, amazing how professional it looks.  Very well done and one mean looking Mandalorian.

I agree with Fritz and Chewie, these is an awesome custom! I see alot of so-so Mando customs on the web, usually just being some color variation of Boba and Jango Fett -- but this is clearly a piece with to which the artist has truly applied his creative license! I love the range finder on his left side, the map tucked on his thigh, and the unique knee pads! The back holster is also genius, and the added height and bulk of his rifle gives him a very heroic, or at least warrior-like look. This really captures the Mandalorian "spirit" as it is depicted in the expanded universe.

Hey Kit,

I like this custom a LOT. You really went the extra mile with the paint app, and the details like weapons belts, the map, the viewfinder and the like. Joe bodies are difficult to use without being somewhat conspicuous, but you have pulled it off nicely.

The only criticism I have is the head and boots. The beanie (or bandana, as the case may be) are a little too "earth" for me, as are the laced up combat boots. But those are just matters of personal preference. I really like the overall look of this guy, and agree with Chewie...you should consider a consolidated thread.

-DD

Thanx for the kind words you guys!

About the thread, I used to have one here, but it's been a while since I posted in it and I think it got kinda lost...

I'll try and find it though, and make an update.
