darth_sidious CUSTOMS: update: Ackmena!
« on: June 30, 2006, 08:04 PM »
Many of you may have never heard the name Mahwi Lihnn, but if you have ever played "Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds", you'll recognize this female bounty hunter from the game.  From what I was able to find, she was employed by the Trade Federation during the events of AOTC, unfortunately I wasnt able to find a reference picture to post with it - if anyone has one - please post it.  Here is a picture of the custom figure:


update 1: Cindel Towani
update 2: Ithorian Warrior
update 3: Ackmena

Very nice job!  BTW, Dark_Phoenix, Mahwi Lihn, is a bounty hunter from Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter (a preTPM novel) and I'm pretty sure that's also when she dies.  I haven't read the book in forever, so I don't really remember it that well.

Excellent custom here. Im not entirely sure of the reference material, but I do beleive Ive seen this character before somewhere. Has she ever appeared anywhere else but Battlegrounds?

BTW is that a Cindel Towani custom up there in your avatar box? Id love to see how that one was made. Could you possibly post a pic?

Thanks, I have only seen her in the GB game, but apparently she had an appearance in the novel listed above.  As for my avatar, it is indeed Cindel Towani, from a custom I made of her, here is a picture:

Mahwi Lihnn> I love it. Vey good likeness. Video Games are such a fertile ground for new customizing ideas. Some of the coolest concepts in the star Wars universe are from the video games. Force Commander which realy sucked for gameplay has some great concepts I'd love to see transformed into plastic.

Keep up the great work!

You've got some great imaginative customs.  Do you have a recipe for Cindel?  She came out fantastic!

Thanks, Cindel was made from the POTJ Bespin escape Leia, spykids head, and the rest was sculpted out of clay and the clothing made with softgoods.  ;)

Cindel is such a cutie.  Excellent job on her, I remember that custom very well from your thread at Scum.

Conceptual Ithorian Warrior

Here is a custom figure based on conceptual drawings from the Art of ROTS book, an Ithorian warrior, shown in a few pictures in the book.  I thought the designs were interesting so I created an outfit similar to the ones seen in the book and came up with this:

That's really awesome man.  Nice to see an Ithorian custom like that, you always come up with some really good ideas that are different from most other customizers.

That Ithorian guy rocks! I've always loved the "Hammerhead" figures/characters, I think they're one of the coolest designs in the entire SW saga. I plan on getting a bunch of the new TSC ones (once they finally show up here) and doing some wacky customs. Is that a Xizor robe on him? Good work!

Very cool DS, nice job. Great use of Xizor's robes( i think)  They really work well.

Great work.
