Joe that's a nice custom but really seems sort of GI JOE to me... kind of like a GI JOE Viper.  Is that where the idea came from?

Ryan, I remember Hemble's custom of that, it's great.  I made a Rykrof kind of like that a while back, but his version is better.



Good ideas so far guys and customs.  Let's be sure to add security force ideas to the Monthly Customizing Challenge thread.  I am also thinking about extending it into August if we don't have enough entries.

For the number of troopers, I think 24 or so would be great, as long as we can get them to be the same version.  I'd hate to have 5 Commtech Stormtroopers, 10 SAGA2 Sandtroopers, a VOTC Stormie and several of the buff versions.  It would just look so terrible.   :P

This is my concept for a security force officer for the UGP. I decided to keep the concept simple, using easily accessable parts, so it can be replicated. I wanted the Security Force Officer to have the look of a cop with some Imperial elements.
LMK what you think.

Fritz, that's awesome!  I like it, and as you said seems easy to make.

I would have responded earlier, but my computer is all screwed up. I think this is a cool custom. I like it.

I'm glad you guys like. I wanted to put some kind of badge or emblem on him that identifies him has the local police. If some one can come up with a design I can make a decal of it. I figure once we've settled on a concept we can start making the customs.

I made him with the sec. force thought in mind , but if they don't end up looking like this , he could be a bounty hunter , with a little retooling.

I added Vator's Insignia design to my security force concept. I like the way the insignia looks. LMK waht you think.

Love that idea. Guess I don't have to throw away that spare Emporer afterall. Great little changes and some painting turn it froma  crappy throw away figure to a cool mayor or senator.

That dude is awesome Daigo-Bah.  Man I love your customs.  Always have been a great admirer of your work.  We gotta use that guy in some capacity, and I hope we can have this thing with the kind of quality that you bring to the table.  Wow.
