Superb figure.  I love that you create female characters-and very well too. 
This is my fave of the lot and you have the nack with the ladies.  I wish that Hasbro would revisit this scene and create this figure!

Thats one of the coolest figures that I've ever seen.  I MUST try this female style droid.  I commend you for this figure!  Awesome work.  One of the most creative recipes I've ever seen.

Another great female figure.  One thing that I love about your work is that you cross into all genres of Star Wars lore.  OT, PT, EU, Fan fic, you do it all.  I like the skirt piece on this figure.  Very unique looking Jedi.  Top shelf work.

Just great stuff man!  That wookie is just awesome!  I love the teal with the dark colored wookie.  Very creative and I can totally imagine him on the battlefield.

Beautiful custom... still can't believe Hasbro hasn't made this yet.

Very well done and creative, and good job catching her very womanly figure.

I looked at all your latest customs and I agree with everyone else: outstanding work  ;D!

But it would be easier to post them all in one thread and update that one from time to time  :).

I can't quite place all the different parts you used for your female customs. Something tells me it's not all SW fodder right? I would love to see some recipes on those.

Wow, VERY imaginative job.  Excellent use of parts and a wonderful paint job.

GI Joe figures often have great parts, but I don't like the awkward-looking pelvises (pelvi?) and the arms with their large and visible joints.

You found a way to combine the best of both worlds, great JOE legs and, ahem, torso while hiding the pelvis and eliminating the bad arms!

Great job!

WOW!  AWESOME job!!

I love it, excellent work.  I have one slight constructive criticism - I would try to get a really glossy black paint to paint her top with, to give it that shiny, leathery look.

Otherwise, this is aces!!

Great figure!  Wow, you're crankin' em out!  This is excellent!  Very original design, nicely done!

I would love to see a "close up" of the head, to appreciate all the painting and sculpting you did.

But I love it.  I have an extra Elizabeth that I've been trying to figure out what to do with.  This is an inspiration.
