Hey Dre,
That Mando looks like he's coming along nicely.  Did you have to cut the pegs off of the arms and then reattach them with sculpey?  Do they still retain articulation?

When you paint this guy, I think doing a Ghez Hokan paint job would be cool since I haven't seen a custom of that guy yet.
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.

I've put my Mando on hold for now.  I'm making an additional ARC for my lone one now. 





I am attempting to make a mixture ofthese guysfrom the animated series.  This is what i have so far.






I know the paint is bumpy, but I'm going to clean it up some, perhaps strip it down to the base and go from there.

Questions, comments, gripes...let me know

Looking good so far Dre.  What are you going to do for the gun?

Looking good so far Dre.  What are you going to do for the gun?

Funny you should ask.  I've been trying(keyword trying)to find the gun that Hasbro used in the picture of the Clone Wars Gunship they have posted.  It's actually a GI Joe mini gun from a Roadblock figure, Versions 9, 10 and 11.  I've searched high and low for this piece, but to no avail.  I have yet to give up hope though, as I'm still scouring the web for it.  If any one has an idea as to where I might be able to find it I'm all ears!!

Here's a link to show what the gun, and figure if any of you have one, looks like.

Thanks for the comments by the way...

Can't you modify a gun from the Millenium Falcon model to make the top clones gun?

Also, somebody from the Yojoe forums must have an extra of that gun?

Funnily enough that gun was the last item I bought for my joes, before I sold the collection.

Here is another ARC I'm working on...my big question is, does the writing look dumb smack on the middle of his forehead?



Opinions please...

Thanks

Um, a little - sorry dude, but you asked.  Maybe it'd help if it was in imperial lettering...  :D
But the latin lettering just dudn't work... imo.

The fact that it is there at all is fine - the positioning looks fine.  :)

I agree with PenDragon, if you are going to letter/number a Star Wars custom, it should be in Aurebesch (or at least a made-up "alien" language ;) ).

BTW- I'm working on that same gatling gun-style blaster using the G.I.Joe gun as a base. I've added a more detailed handle to the top for the gunner's left hand made from a Chap Mei accessory and a drum magazine/powerpack made from part of another G.I.Joe rifle (I believe it is from a figure called "Rock-Viper"). It won't be in the hands of a Clone though, it'll be handled by a custom Sand Pirate :)

I'm also trying to work out the mechanics of the quadgun one, I have some ideas, but nothing concrete yet. When I do, I'll share them with you :)

I've seen a couple of Quad-gun customs, and they both used the quad gun from the Millenium Falcon Cd-ROM game that came out in POTF2 era toys.  They looked pretty good too.  PM me and I'll get you the links.

Well here is my WIP, adjusted writing ARC so far. 

I moved the writing to his armor, I think it looks better there.



I cleaned up the 'mowhawk' area on his helmet, and am just going to leave it like it is.  I'm going to clean up the paint on his arms as well.



I just need a Kama for him...and for my heavy gunner.  Any leads would be appreciated.

Thanks

Dre

And in Aurabesh it's a huge improvement, keep us updated...  The Aurabesh language is something I think we should see in more customs...  A Tattoo on someone's arm, whatever.  It shows in the films enough and I've seen it in games from anything from a computer readout to random graffitti on a seedy city's walls.  It looks cool when it's snuck into a custom like that.

I agree 100% Jesse.  The Aurebesh looks cooler, and it's in a much better spot on the armor.  I'm going to give it a bit of weathering, so it doens't look brand new.  I'm still looking for a couple of Kamas, so ifanyone has any leads, please let me know.  Thanks for all the comments...I'll update later tonight again.

Nice job Dre!

The lettering looks great - I like the asymetrical aspect of having it where it is on the armor.

I also really like the paint ap - very simple, very effective!

Also, I have an extra green commander kama if you need one - PM if you're interested  8)
