Thanks everyone, I'm pretty happy with how it turend out, though the aluminum tape was extremely tedious work to cut mirrored pieces for each side of the figure.

Fritz - Ayy Vida was in the first Saga line, and is seen as Lando's pal in these pics.
Here's a carded pic:


Spyke -I'll work on getting some better pics of the droid itself

Thanks for the kind words - I am a bit excited about the potential for the new endor troops, and I'll try to get better close-ups of the figure. ;D

Wonderful and yes you've been busy.  This was an excellent idea for a female Endor rebel.  Great recipe!

She's really pretty and a genius use of parts.  Great to see so much variety from you, that makes you really unique and a really fun customizer to watch.

Would you consider a consolidated thread for your customs?  It makes it a bit easier for most of us to find your work.   :)

Miss Swan does make good fodder. I like the hair going thru the back of the hat.  Nice figure.

Very nice figure there. I would have thought that you used that tall ugly Lucas daughter figure for the body and arms but I like the alternative you used instead. I actually have those parts and may have to try this one someday.

hey guys, just a little update from your friendly neighborhood overworked staffer...

I talked to Johnboy before Comic-Con but obviously I was a bit pre-occupied during the show.  I'd mentioned just merging his threads together because, at the time, there were a ton of them pushing the page down. :)  He's ok with me merging them together though so his body of work that was on Page 2 here is now all together...

Johnboy this is your thread though so if you want to update it go for it man.  I updated the thread title, and you have that ability too (You can always change it to reflect a new update...  Like I said that's what some of our members do like CHEWIE and Darth Delicious, and it works out pretty well for them IMO).

Your stuff's great of course too...  It's a lot for me to look through right now.  I've always got something on my plate but I do keep an eye on the customs here and admire a lot of stuff if I'm not always as vocal as I want to be of late.

Great work man, and glad you're aboard.

Smartypants - I guess you're referring to my Plo Koon custom.  The top shoulder peice is indeed from 1 of 2 Imperial dignitaries released in the old saga line

I got this particular collar from this figure:

As opposed to the other version:

Here's the first of my latest two figures.

He's a Sakiyan Jedi named Toll Drank. 

Parts used:
Saga - Djas Puhr head, hands
VTSC - sandpeople legs
Saga - Barada belt
ROTS - Agen Kolar robe cut down
Some dollar tree figure for the arms and torso
POTC - Elizabeth Swann bandolier

Let me know what you think:






and some friends...
