I hope I can get around making the sides of that helmet. Will give it my best, of course!
As you'll probably know Yakface.com hosts an annual Secret Santa Custom round. Quite a few of us took part and made some great custom gifts for each other.
This is what I made for fellow customizer MrHoppers, a battle damaged Spider Droid and as a bonus a female Jedi Knight. The latter is a custom I made a few years ago, I must admit. I wanted to make a new Jedi, but you wouldn't believe the insane paint rub issues I experienced with that one. Because of the deadline, I opted to add an older quality custom, instead of a new one with a soddy paint job.
The Spider Droid is the Saga Deluxe one (I think), with the walking mechanism ripped out, damage effects using my Dremel and soldering iron and a bit of tubing on the under side. Repainted the entire thing in shades of green and added the obligatory weathering and battle marks.
Despite the pressure of the deadline (shipped Dec.17th., arrived Jan.3rd.) I had great fun making this one. I even thought of adding decals, inspired by that walker seen in Sucker Punch. But like I said, time wouldn't let me.
The Jedi is made from a 25th. Scarlett body, ROTS Shaak Ti skirt and VvV Bombstrike head. Fully repainted of course.
Anwyay, enough talk, here's the pics:
