Here is a quick little slave I threw together.  I'm thinking about adding a belt around the waist, not sure though.  Anyway, LMK what you think.

AS promised here's my Imperial. The butt ugliest character in all of Star Wars continuity.......

Grand Moff Moorlish Veed ( from SW:Legacy)



He was a pretty simple headswap, with some Sculpy and rubberbands glued on for the top of his tunic.
Head: SHS Punisher
Body: ROTS Tarkin.

I'm so happy to see an awesome figure of this style imperial uniform.  That comic book is chock full of great custom ideas.  Your Imperial figure from it is  fantastic!  Great details on the tunic and the neck piece.  It looks like he just leapt out of the comic.  Thats a mighty fine head for this figure too.  Its really a perfect head for an imperial.  My compliments to you, great job.  I'm inspired to try thisd style of figure now
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!

Cool stuff guys!

Ennis - The Imperial looks pretty tough, very cool.  I like the darker color of his outfit.

Man, that looks like one D-I-R-T-Y woman... very cool though and clever.  The rubberband technique is a genius idea... she's very, very dirty.  Kinda like that in a woman, I must admit.

CloneCommander1 - That's pretty good.  I guess I'd try and use a different head so it doesn't look like Han.  But other than that I love this custom, really good use of parts and the cuts on his face look really good.

Here is my entry for this month -

MOFF TALYCIN and POLIS MASAN SLAVE



Parts Used

Moff Talycin
head - 21st century figure
robe - ROTS Bail Organa
body - SAGA2 General Veers


Slave
head/hands - ROTS Polis Masan
body - POTF2 Doda Bodonawieedo

 :)

Its been a long time since I worked on a custom figure.  With all the activity I've been spending on my diorama project that I haven't been working on figures.  However, I did break away to start up two WIPs for the Slaves portion of the MCC.

These will be Sebulba's Twi'lek Masseuses.



The one on the left is a blend of the Annika figure (um, obviously), Ayy Vida headpiece, POTF2 Slave Leia legs and some hands that I found in my fodder box.  The one on the right is just Ayy Vida but you can imagine that she'll be painted blue so I consider her a WIP.

I know that these two aren't exactly twins but I wanted to differentiate them to some extent.  Sure the bust on Annika is too large but it was the best other body I had available.

Incidently, I've had a problem getting the Ayy Vida figure to stand.  The leg seems a bit twisted.  Is this normal or has my figure deformed during storage??

I should have these finished up by the weekend deadline.  I've got a couple other customs for the MCC in mind but I will probably run out of time.

Well, my Wald is going along nicely... just have to get a drybrush on him to finish him up (hopefully tonight) and then I can get some pics and finish off this month.   :)

Brent, that one of the left looks stunning.  She's gonna be a home-wrecker.   ;D

The Ayy Vida figure does seem to have trouble standing.  I had several at one time and ended up tearing them apart for customs.  Just be careful on the knee joints when painting.

Thanks for the comments Chewie...

I'm not going to have my Slaves or imperials all finished by tonight (the deadline).  However, I should get them finished by this (long woohoo) weekend. 

I've got one more Slave WIP and 2-3 simple imperials planned.

Okay, I'm an hour and a half tardy. 

SLAVE:

I finished up one of the masseuses.  I wanted to see how one turned out before I started painting both.  Overall, I'm pretty pleased.  I need to clean up the gown a little bit.  Obviously there are several things that don't make this movie accurate (no sleeves, no bare feet, silver armlets).



Recipe:

Face - Anika Sub5
Tendrils - Ayy Vida
Torso - Anika Sub5
Legs - POTF2 Slave Leia
Hands - random female hands in my fodder bin
Neckring - POTF2 Slave Leia (I think)

IMPERIALS

These are two guys I've planned on making for a while.  Relatively simple headswaps:

Captain Piett:



Recipe:
Head - POTF2 Piett (dremmeled to a ball socket)
Body - Saga2 Veers

Grand Moff Tarkin



Recipe:
Head:  POTF2 Tarkin (dremmeled to a ball socket)
Body: ROTS Tarkin

For both of these Imperials, the POTF heads are smaller than the ROTS/Saga version.  I had to dremel down the neck posts and repaint them as well.  Hopefully I got the paint color close enough.  However, as you know with me its always an adventure :)
