I've been working really hard these past few months getting together some money to expand my collection. The only way I know how: customising on commission. A guy contacted me via my site and wanted to order a few clones. Here's what I came up with:













For now, I'm working on the WIP clone I posted earlier and a Lando in Imperial guard disguise. For more pics of the clone commisssions and my finished LEGO Halo troopers, please check my site here:

Good stuff here. Very clean feeling clones. You kind of did the dirt like hasbro does. Fox is the best of the bunch. I think you need to add a buckle to Neyo's straps. Maybe make his left sholder black or gray and add a little black to the side indentions on his face. It really adds another dimension to the helmet doing that.

yes, i think a buckles and a shoulder pauldron would make both Neyo's really pop. on mine, my husband made a belt buckle out of styrene, along with the shoulder straps and pauldron (i did all the weathering & painting. the helmet is a Bantha5 creation).  :P




and yes, the "weathering" (dirt whatever you wanna call it) on your clones is very Hasbro-esque. Fox is definitely the standout of the group imho.

Very nice job on these kit. I'm sure the owner/s are extremely happy with them.
Your weathering is very HAsbro-like. I like it. It make them blend in really well on the shelf.
I dont like seeing my figures next to hasbros, casue they stand out. That is why i card most of them.
They dont look right next to the toned down weathering of Hasbro.

Great work.

Thanx for the kind words. About the weathering, I know. I don't like to "over-weather" my clones. I do weather more on other characters, but clones are just to white to go and make them TOO dirty I think. So I try and copy what hasbro is doing, mostly 'cause these clones will end up in an army builders' collection. And what Glassman6 said is correct, they would stand out TOO much.

Re: Kit Fisto's Customs (Updated 23/06/06) Lando in Imp Disguise

You guys might remember my Sote Luke In imperial guard disguise from some time ago. I think I even posted it in this thread. Anyway, a lot of people asked me if I was planning on making a Lando too. And I was, I just wasn't able to get my hands on the parts. A few weeks ago, I finnally got hold of all of them. So I started putting him together. The helmet is a modified cast. The rest of the recipe is this:

Lando General POTF head
ROTS clone commander legs, arms, kama and guns
Sci Fi GI Joe torso
custom build staff

I took me some time to finish him, 'cause a few guys from the Belgian Star Wars Fanclub are building a storm trooper armor. And they asked me to build them proper E-11 blasters. You can see some pics on my site soon.

Anyways, enough talk, some pics:

W :o W Kit, those are awesome. How did you get the arms to fit into the Sci-Fi torso? Its a great design, Kinda makes me wish I still had a few of those lying around. Di you have much trouble keeping them together? Ive never actually tried to combine a joe torso with SW figs.

HI D_E, I was lucky with the sci fi torso. The arms of the commander fit perfectly, didn't have to alter anything. I Just screwed the 2 halves together and filled the screwhole with some milliput and sanded it down. Those arms look as if they were MADE for that torso. The leg/pelvis part wxas something else. I sanded down the torso a bit, glued it to the pelvis and smoothed it with milliput.

@ Outrider: I'm glad you like him mate. It was really easy to do, but I think it looks great. I first used a light green that didn't cover the white completely. Then I used 2 diffirent greens to add the cammo patern.

Kit

The Lando and Luke in SOTE gear are a vast improvement over Hasbro's earlier attempt.  Paint app is also top notch.

Also wanted to say I checked out your website and i was very impressed with both you and your (gf yes?)'s artistic work!  All of it was very impressive, you guys have some MAJOR talent!
