Those pics are blurry but I can see some definite good customs there.  Especially the Wookiee Jedi do me looks very cool on the Pablo Jill body.  Good luck with the camera, can't wait to see clearer pics!

I like the looks of that Dresselian Jedi, did you paint the robes too?

The Duros Jedi is great, the parts work very well together.

I know that when I first started taking pics of my customs, my pics were very blurry.  I found that standing a little further back when you take the pictures helps to focus the camera better.

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 eyes hurt from looking at the blurry pictures but I can tell these are very solid customs. The wookiee jedi is my favorite. I'd suggest cutting off the jedi boots on the wookiee and replacing them with wookiee feet. Maybe even replace the legs with Chewie's legs.  (not our Chewie's legs but the figure's legs) Then you could use some thin sculpty to craft pants. Of course, wookiees don't wear pants, so you might be able to get away with it. Good stuff Tinman!

a bit blurry, but , some nice , solid , well built customs there...like CHEWIE and MP have also said  , the wookie jedi looks great,

Joe

P.s...like Master_Phurby stated....try not to use our own CHEWIE's legs..that might hurt Jason.
Cheers!

Good news !!   :D I fixed the camera and have new customs. I am currently working on the Wookie jedi and the Trandoshan Slavers. The Jedi Starfighter is a Work in Progress. I still have to paint the droid. I named the Duros Jedi Master Patiz. I have just moved into a new house and have not had much time to work on this month's MCC, but I have 2 other WIPs that I have not taken pictures of yet. Those are a Felucia Ground Beetle and a Battle Droid Troop Transport. I also have a couple other WIPs which are a Republic Commander in stealth armor, 501st Jet trooper, SA 501st trooper and a couple misc. Jedi.
Here are my new customs:

Jedi Starfighter


Commander Werda


Commander Verd


Commander Verd without helmet on


Nemiodion Pilot


Here are the recipes for them

Nemiodion Pilot:
Lushros Dofine

Commander Werda:
Commander Bacara

Commander Verd:
Evolutions Clone Pilot
Visor- ROTS Clone Commander

Jedi Starfighter:
Obi-wan's Jedi Starfighter

Master Patiz:
Episode 1 Obi-wan Kenobi- Body
Ellors Madak- Head & hands

Darmikkaro:
Episode 2 Plo Koon- Body
Orminakko- Head & hands

Commander Khan:
Episode 3 Red Clone Commander
Pilot gear from Evolutions Clone Pilot

The clone Commanders names are based on Mando'a words
Verd means Victory
Werda means shadows
Khan is based on the word Kandosii which means indomitable, noble, ruthless
I am going to name my commandos and their squad after Mando'a words

Thanks for looking  ;D

I dig the colors of the Jedi Starfighter. One suggestion would be to add some weathering, make it look like it's see some space travel.

I really like the Nemoidian pilot.  THat Lushros Dofine figure is in my opinion on of the most versitle, customizable figures to come along in a while.  Youir pilot figure is a nice turn of the dark/drab robes worn by so many. 

THe starfighter is also nicely done.  Cool colors.  I agree that perhaps some weathering would make it look more space weary.  Very cool as is though
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!

New Customs  ;D
Here is my finished starfighter. I painted the droid black and added weathering.


For this month's MCC I made an Imperial named Admiral Alsten McConnell


Here is his Wookie slave also for this month's MCC


Him with his wookie slave


I have a Zabrak slave on the way as well as Kitster Banai Anakan's friend from Episode 1.

That's pretty damn cool Tin Man.  I like the Imperial a lot, simple but pretty effective.  Amazing how the Wookiee looks like an all new figure too by using that vest thing from the Heavy Wookiee Gunner... so is the Wookiee dismembered?

Nice stuff, and the repainted Jedi fighter looks very sharp.

Great update!!!

The reason the Wookie dosen't have an arm is because I got him like that from a ROTS toys lot off of eBay. The backstory though his he lost his arm on Kessel in the spice mines. I am trying to find a good new arm for him. Some kind of robotic arm.

Great set of customs Tin_Man

I think Commander Verd should be green instead of yellow  ;)

I like the Starfighter, cool color choice.  Did you detail the R2 unit or is it just black?
You could add some blast marks to the Starfighter (you can make a black splotch with a smaller silver splotch inside to represent a blast mark).

Admiral McConnell is awesome - did you modify the Obi-Wan head?  It doesn't really look like Obi-Wan (which is good, obviously).  It's cool that his wookiee slave is missing an arm, nice touch. 
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 just painted the R2 unit black. I plan on detailing when I have more time. Admiral McConnell has a painted Obi-wan Pilot head. I got his name off of the Star Wars Random Name Generator I Painted the hair dark grey and then added some white highlights.  Thanks for the commnents. :)
