Just made another guy for the city portion of Judde.  He is in a permanent seated position because that is the only way his legs looked correctly stanced and proportioned!  I even made a little stool for him.  Maybe he can sit outside the cantina or whatever!









Recipe:
Head- General Dodonna (with extra sculpted hair on the forehead and 'stache)
Torso- POTF2 Boushh
Arms- Ep1 Naboo Qui-Gon
Legs- Saga Bespin "beaten-up" Luke
Greg Reeves

My *New* top 3 most desired figures: 1) Yerka Mig; 2) Uncle Owen; 3) Hoth Luke

Starkid,
I'm curious, are you intending these figures to be part of the Ultimate Group Project?  If so, I think you should provide recipe and a little background story (like what Daigo-bah has been doing).  Just posting customs in this thread without any other info isn't that helpful (in my opinion).

Smarty,
Like the look of you custom. What is the creature used and where did you get it? Would be great for some of the other ideas I have. Thanks

I took Justin's advice on color scheme and wow, it turned out excellant.




LMK what you guys think.
 I figure this can be some guy hanging out in the cantina, or stiring up some trouble with his rodian lizard hound. (pictured above)

Wow! That is one intense shirt! I personally think the yellow/green clashes with Greedo's skin. Maybe a wash on Greedo's head/arms should make it look better.

Hi, sorry if i haven't been involved in this project.  Just wanted to let you guys know that I like everything I see so far and to make an offer to the project.

How would you guys like some noghri citizens/warriors/assassains for the UGP (donated, up to four),  I am working on a custom sculpted and casted generic SA Noghri warrior.  So far I am in the sculpting stage and it will take 2 months or more to complete, but I gaurantee a quality product, with 2 head variations, a head styled after the Dark Force Rising version and the more recent short snout version seen in the clone wars graphic novels (bly, aayla secura on honogar)

The articulation is as follows

Ball jointed
Torso
Elbows
ankles
knees
head
thighs

swivel wrists

I have figured out how to cast ball joints and will share the technique later.

It would fit with the ROTS ANH timeline cause Vader vsited Honogar after the clone wars but before ANH.

If you are interested please PM me to work out arrangements, even if you would like some just for yourself (these will be sold however).  I'll try to post picks of the WIP when possible.

Just let me know your guys thoughts on this.

Thanks alot,
                   Ken

Palps:Do you use Darkside
Vader:Yes master
Palps:In time you will learn the true power of the darkside

Just finished another for the UGP.  This guy is some sort of bounty hunter or soldier of fortune.  I imagine he'll be holding someone at gunpoint in a back alley of the town diorama.











Recipe:
Head- POTF2 CT Luke (with sculpy beard and bangs, and little gems for receptors)
Body- CT Greedo
Hands/vest- CT Han
Rifle- POTF2 Sandtrooper cannon altered and cut down

Very cool bounty hunter there. I like the sculpted beard and the greedo outfit is nicely colored. Its very much like a new figure. I don't like the gems for eyes. If I were to do that, I would add a little bit of wire to make them look like sun glasses. From far away it just looks a little freaky to me.

Thanks guys- I may alter the hair a little so that he's less recognizable as a Luke head, and the gems were a way to further alter his look.  I can certainly change it though.
