I've commented on your latest figs over at RS, but this is the first time I've seen your helmet sculpts and I have to say that they are simply stunning. Kudos.

I dont use the thumbnail option that often. I think I will just go to standard pics from now on.
I am so so sorry for any pop ups and stuff anyone got. I want you all to know I dont know how this is happening and I will kill the current links and change them to standard pics.

Thanks Darth_Anton!

Re: Straxus Customs 11-16-07 Mandalorian: Pink the Fabulous!

Introducing possibly the most terrifying Mandalorian ever!!!

PINK THE FABULOUS!!!



So titled the "Fabulous" due to the unholy redecorating this Mandalorian warlord unleashes upon conqured worlds!!!

After trying three different cameras I realized that the true brilliance of the pink of this figure could not be captured, only emulated with the help of paint shop pro. To truly comprehend how pink this figure is in person, image the sun as the color pink and stare into it until you are blind!!! (I have been seeing pink for the last two days everytime I close my eyes after painting. No joke!)

Now I'm scared. You don't see alot of pink in the Star Wars universe. He needs a feather boa to accent the color scheme. I think this color scheme would look interesting on the EE female Mandalorians whenever they come out.

When the heck is someone around here going to make Pink Five?!!

I believe Aerosmith has a song called Pink. This would be a good theme song for your Bunty Hunter.

Now that is cool! I love the color scheme and the head. I wonder if there are any more of those Strax-Helm 02 left at G2G. You've outdone yourself with this one.

Wow that awesome Straxus, as if the fig itself isn't bada$$ it takes the cake with your custom helmet.  The only thing I'd add is maybe a holster for a blaster pistol, though I'm sure he spend most of his time saving his fellow brothers I can't imagine going into a battlefield unarmed or carrying something as big as a carbine.

I have a holster I cut off a stormtrooper a while back, I might add that (with a few mods) to carry a pistol.
Master_Phruby, gtg does casting by request now, so it will be available! (if the link disappears it means they are making a new mold of the origional sculpt cause the old mold gave out.)

Since I was asked on another forum about the paint colors I used to make the 212th "Utapau" trooper color, here goes:

I painted the first layer of orange with games workshop "Blazing Orange" first, then final layer with "Fiery Orange". The pouldron was just painted with "Fiery Orange" alone to give it a slightly brighter look and not blend too much with the armor. (Wanted it to still look like the pouldron was over armor not part of it.)

Here are some closeups of the face.

...and some more!
The Abomination of Raxus Prime
(My entry for this months Yakfinities Cross Breeds contest)
Just prior to the Clone Wars, Count Dooku, experimented with his new sith talents taught to him by Palpatine. He collected specimens for a dark hybrid program. After a number of experiments, one succeeded. The Abomination was a created by the merging of Gand, Quarren, Aqualish, Tweilek and Geonosian physiology. The creature at first was very primal. As it turned out, due to some odd chance the creature developed a way of absorbing knowledge and memories from victims it consumed. By the time of the Clone Wars it had developed a suprisingly impressive intellect and shown force sensitivity. Keeping to the code of the Bane, the creature was not taught in the ways of the Sith and its secrets, but however given a twisted and limited knowledge of jedi techniques. The Abomination was locked away in stasis hidden somewhere on Raxus Prime. It was to be released if anything ever happened to Dooku. When word eventualy made it back to CIS agents still on Raxus Prime the creature was unleashed. It slayed and consumed most the organic CIS agents and destroyed the Droids. Upon the deactivation of the droid armies, The Abomination went about reactivating a number of them to serve him and with the resources of a world of junk, built his own double bladed light saber.
Many beleive the creature to just be a legend. The sentients of Raxus Prime know better...



Ahntek the Gand Mandalorian
This was my entry for the Sith Empire.net Mandalorian Contest


Xhan the Golden
This was my entry for the Yakfinities Crime Bosses Contest
I forgot a couple accessories when I grabbed him for taking over to get pictures taken. So minus the Spice inhaler and coat.

SOK-118
This droid was being worked on as an additional entry in the Yakfinities Force Unleashed but didnt make it in time. It was a security droid on Raxus Prime. I tried to show the damage, rust and weathering it suffered in the toxic environment.
The head is a custom sculpt and the torso is modified.
Base figure was a 4-LOM


Styshia Rathus
A character I plan on making a few variations of in the future.
Cover story is former Imperial Officer who resigned and formed a mercenary group. In truth was recruited by the ISB (Imperial Security Bureau)
Still working on this figure


This is Styshia's droid a heavily modified RA and CZ hybrid.
RAZ-1X


Battle Droid Warlord (name yet to be determined)
...and Raxus Prime Junk Golem Steed
This droid was rebuilt by The Abomination on Raxus Prime. It serves as one of his main warlords.
Still working on the droid. The backpack is from a Armored Core kit, the flame is from a Marvel Legends Figure and the Robotic Bird thing is a Techno-Spawn figure that I found at a toy store on clearance. I figured it would serve as a good steed in the toxic junk wastelands.

the photographer did a good job editing my hand out of the pic!
