Re: RED ARC with improved holsters 7/16
« Reply #90 on: July 17, 2006, 09:45 PM »
Sorry to keep updating this thread but I was still not satisfied with my red ARC.  I think that I can call it complete this time.  I went back and repaint the pauldron's ammo pouch, dry brished the weapons and rehung the right holster.  I HATE being this nit picky but I had to correct it.  For those who care its now COMPLETE. 

Also stay tuned for the 3 Blue ARC troopers coming after I complete a few that have been on the shelf.

Captain Jerjerrod, Rise of the Empire 8/22
« Reply #91 on: August 21, 2006, 03:24 PM »
This is my latest Rise of the Emprie figure.  I like to think that Captain Jerjerrod was enslaving gungans in the plains and forests of Naboo with generation 1 stormtroopers under his command.  Hope you like it.  For more pics click on the link below the bottom pic

That Captain Jerjerrod is EXCELLENT!
I love that camo mixed with armor peices. That is GREAT use of an AT-AT Driver body! I really like this figure alot!

Wow thanks.  I'd be honored.  Thanks everyone for the comments!

This figure was a ton of fun to create.  Lately I've been learning how to do a couple new camo patterns and I've been experimenting with new materials for pack pouches, holsters belts and such. 

This style of camo is one that I saw while in K-mart in the hunting section.  Its a variation on a woodland theme- I changed the colors to make it appear more Star Wars-y.  For anyone who may be interested this new Rise of the Empire base figure will be featured in my next ROTE figure. 
The base figure is an AT-AT Driver torso (retooled) and a clone pilot groin and leg set.  It was filled and sanded to make a smoothe transition, then belted with the jump suit belt and buckle to hide any seems once and for all.

Outrider! Where have you been? Well, apparently doing some amazing camo paint job on this one. It's hard to believe, but you've improved the camo pattern of the RotE series again!

The belt and holster are a superb finishing touch, as always. Looking forward to more RotE figs, man!  ;D

AT-AT Crewman- Rise of the Empire
« Reply #97 on: August 23, 2006, 11:50 PM »
Hello again.  Here's Rise of the Empire figure #13 of 20, AT-AT Crew member- Rise of the Empire.  As a kid I always loved the AT-AT and their pilots.  Hopefully this figure looks like an early version of that character just a few years after the birth of the Empire.  To me AT-AT walkers always looked like they'd been around for a while-archaic almost.  AT-AT crew members not only piloted the craft but operated mechanical systems, and provided perimeter security when the AT-AT was stationary.  By the way this is my personal favorite of the series to date.  Let me know what you think and thanks for lookin'

Good stuff Outrider.  I like the bridging look to this guy.  My only (minor) complaint is that he looks very "bulky"   I'm not sure how to take care of that though.  I'm wondering is the helmet full removeable?  Can you post a recipe for this guy?  Keep 'em coming.

Great looking Stuff as always.

I realy like your rise of the Empire theme. Captain Jerjerrod looks great very Wermachtesque.

The AT-AT crew looks sweet, it reminds me of some of the Pilots from "Force Commander" The cut away in the helmet looks great.

Great work keep it up.

I love this series. The Jerjodd is excellent. I love the camo scheme.

The At -At crewman is excellent as well. Is there any way we can see it with the helmet off? Which helmet is that BTW.

Captain Kagi- well maybe that is!
« Reply #103 on: September 18, 2006, 11:58 PM »
Had an extra soft kama and it isn't good enough to sell to anybody but I thought that I could maybe do something cool with it.  I like to think that this is perhaps what Captain Kagi looks like.  Its nothing incredible special but I was inspired by that irregular kama I had...

Hope you like it.

The kama looks great on him, Outrider! But didn't Palpatine address Kagi when he went looking for Anakin? Man, I really gotta watch RotS again. It's been too long!

Is the red Hasbro's or yours? I think it's a bit too much on the bright side. Could be just he pics though.
