Re: Incom's customs Update 08-13-'06: WIP Kass Todd
« Reply #31 on: August 13, 2006, 04:35 PM »
Damn, it's been too long a period of non-customizing! All because of the heatwave of July here in Holland, which made working on the attic (my workspace) unbearable. But now that August is trying hard to be the wettest month of the year, I'm back at it.

I've been working hard on my Kass Todd figure, a hawt Zabrak Padawan from the Clone Wars/Republic comics. Her looks are based on her appearances in the Battle of Jabiim.

I chose POTF Slave Leia's head, because I like the angry look on it. Here are some pics of it with two pairs of Zabrak horns added.



Here are some reference pics I scanned from the Clone Wars TPB Last Stand on Jabiim:




Here are some wip pics of the rough assembly of the figure. Kass' hair is quite long (there's a tiny shot of her back in the comics), but not as long as you see now. I'll trim that later. I used Fritzkrieg's excellent tutorial to attaching ball jointed limbs on peg based bodies. Worked like a charm! Thanks man!
Although the shoulders look a bit bulky, that will be covered up with the leather vest Kass will be wearing. As always, let me know what you think of it so far!

Re: Incom's customs Update 09-24-'06: Jedi Knight Szaru Faallor
« Reply #34 on: September 24, 2006, 02:52 PM »
Wow, had to dig up my thread all the way from page 3  ;D. That's what I get for not updating for more than a month, ha! Kass Tod is slow on progress, due to difficulties in finding/mixing the right colour for her skin.

However, here's Jedi Knight Szaru Faallor, my entry for the September competition over at Yakface. Szaru was one of the lucky Jedi to receive the altered signal from Coruscant and acted accordingly. Like other 'fugitives' of the Empire, he stayed in hiding in the Outer Rim territories. He led numerous succesful uprisings against the Imperial oppressors and gained much love and respect from the locals. Of course, his presence did not go unnoticed by others either. After five years of rebelling against the Imperials, one of his 'loyal' followers led him to the wrong end of an infamous red lightsaber...





Parts used:
head, arms: GI Joe VvV Dr. Link Talbot
Torso: Saga Han Solo Bespin Outfit
Legs: ROTS Ki-Adi Mundi
Coat: GI Joe Monkey Wrench
Custom made leather belt, holster and two shoulder patches.

I thought I'd give you a quick glance at a special RepCom I've been working on: RC-J1406, a specially trained Commando, whose main job it is to hunt down Jedi. His cortosis alloy armour comes in handy at the job  ;)

He looks like a member from Omega Squad, I know, but I actually based this figure loosely on a Japanese character named Jin Roh. I'll add a wash and some dry brushing of course, as well as other details.

Thanks for the nice comments Anton and Deanna. Hope to see some of your Jedi soon, then, Deanna  :) It's always nice to hear someone say "hey, that's a cool idea, I'll have to try that."  :)

Lookin sweet man.  How did you modify that helmet?  Looks like a different visor.  It reminds me of Boba's or Jango's helmet a little.  Nice. 
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!

I guess there's a bit of a couple of Jedi in my Jedi Master. I can see some resemblence with Cin, too:



Paul, I used a very small amount of putty to fill up the vertical bit of the visor. Nothing fancy, actually  :)

Re: Incom's customs: RC-J1406 finished

I finished work on Clone RC-J1406, part of a specially trained group of Commandos, skilled in hunting down and battling Jedi. Like I said in my last WIP update, this guy wears custom made cortosis alloy armor, which can take a blow or two from lightsaber strikes  8). I got that idea from those nasty dudes in the game JK2: Jedi Outcast. He also carries a backpack which can supply him with some sort of stimulant that will enhance his reflexes and stamina. Pretty handy when fighting those pesky lil' Jedi. 1406 lost his left hand in one of those encounters and had it replaced with a robotic/cyborg hand.




Recipe:
- Scorch figure (obviously) with modified helmet
- AT-TE Gunner's head
- Saga/OTC Snowtrooper shoulder plates
- Cmdr. Bacara belt
- custom made kama by Outrider (thanks man!)
- Scorch missiles (backpack) with hose from Saga AT-AT Driver helmet
- shortened Clone rifle

As always, feel free to share your likes and dislikes  :)

AWSOME!  I love that helmet deco, the shoulders are perfect, and the colors go together so well.  Not to mention all the cool acessories!  This is my favorite custom I've ever seen of yours, bravo!
