 :o Awesome what else can be said, except I want them all  ;D  suggestion how about some hands for the female mon cal.  the only reason I say this is because all the mon cals that hasbro has made would probably look a little big on her, and what might the bothan hands look like, seeing that their furry would some wookie hands blend in well with them or would that probably be too much hair?  sorry don't mean too sound anal, but looking at your sculpts you obviously pay a lot of attention to detail.  also the ball joints on the head are they easy to dremel out to place them on other bodies.   i'd hate to get one of these and melt/burn it out.  thanx for your patience with the 20 questions i'm just really looking forward to getting some of these when you're up and ready.

Hey guys,

Ok, requests were posted over at GTG for light sabers sculpts last week or so. Phalanxx, thanks for the pic refrences, they helped get me going. I searched arround for verious designs that I found appealing. Unfortunatly, my camera does not take the best close up small detail pics. Here are 5 freshly sclupted light sabers:



A random design found on the web



a fancy design also found on the web



Kyle Katarn's Lightsaber



Light saber handle from the Jedi Academy Game



Jedi Master T'ra Saa's Light Saber with the wooden handle detail

Thats it for now. I am going to get these to GTG as soon as possible. Look for more light sabers to come in the next comming months. I will post pics over in my Wax Shop under the Armory section.

Thanks for stopping by,

Hey Everyone,

A few weeks ago I posted over at GTG, information about a mistery head that was sculpted for wave 1 that was requested by the GTG staff. Well here she is, Darth Talon from the SW Legacy comic.



In additional news, the molds have been made and shipped to GTG Headquarters for production. Check over at the GTG store in about a week to see the finial product pics and place your orders. Thank you all for your support on this project and I look forward to see all your custom projects that use these heads.

Best reguards,

Man, she looks wicked! Too bad GTG doesn't ship to Holland, though. I found some nice items there. Some? I mean plenty!

Have you considered doing sculps of people Ben?
I mean for example if a member of JD wanted to make a custom figure of themselves could you sculpt them a head of themselves, for a price obviously.

Excellent work, I have really admired your stuff while lurking over the last few months. Seems like I MIGHT know where Statesboro is  ;D. Might have to track ya down sometime. I really love your Yarna and Hoover. They look fabulous! Keep up the great work!

Hey Everyone,

I have great news, the first wave of sculpted heads, sabers, and weapons will be up in the Good To Go Customs store this Monday :D !!! I got a sneak peak at the cast heads and I almost shed a tear of joy. They look fabulous in color plastic. I have to say, my favorite is Jedi Master K'Kruhk. But then again, like children, they are all my favorites. The staff at GTGC has given my work an exclusive section with in the store, so it should be real easy to find these pieces. Now I do have to warn you that supplies will be limited in the first run, but I have their insurances that they will try to keep the restock updated.

I would like to take this time to thank each and everyone who has posted comments, sent pms, and viewed this thread and offered there support. I am very touched by the overwhelming response to this project. I hope everyone will enjoy their cast pieces and I look forward in seeing your creations using these pieces. And stay tuned, I have more updates coming in the next week, featuring Wave 2 female heads, double blade sabers, and more mech weapons.

Excellent news Ben. I just hope they cast enough or they could have a riot on their hands. ;D

Personally I plan to loot and burn if I dont get at least a set. :P

Im really looking forward to these. Any word on when Gargan will be available?
