Thanks,

They were the kids from Spy Kids.  Never saw the movie, so I couldn't tell you what their names were.

I really liked your Tat Argota and Kap Dendo, but most of all Montross. Is it at all possible to get a recipe for him? I think almost all of your customs are top notch and look forward to seeing some more sometime.

Wow.  I really enjoyed perusing throught your photobucket gallery.  Some outstanding stuff for sure in there.  I especially liked the Twi Lek Jedi on page 3.  Good good stuff .  Can't wait to see some more. 
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!

Thanks all!  I appreciate the feedback.

and for Jediknight760071, the Montross recipe...

Let's see, if I recall, it was the 300th figure Boba Fett torso.  Djas Puhr (sp?) legs and holsters, one arm was from Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park, and the other arm was from the kid with the hang glider from JPII.  I also used his head as a place holder becasue it fit nicely inside the Jango helmet.

Those are some pretty sweet customs.  You should post a few here as images to really show them off.  I've found that many people won't scroll through photobucket galleries.  We are an "instant" gratification society now-a-days  ;)

Beautiful stuff Herald! No criticism needed.

One idea for you, though, on the Bespin Guard. I made a custom using that body and closed his jacket. It's really easy. I removed the jacket and then sanded his torso down, not even a lot, but it was just enough so that when I go the jacket back on, I could close it and glue it shut.

Great to have you here, S_H. We've already met at TFN and your customs are indeed something to be very proud of!

It's been a while. but I worked on quite a few new pieces around the holidays.

The first is Darth Vader.  I was not happy with the 'Sith Eyes' hasbro was able to come up with, so I embellished.


Next is a group of Jawas.  I weathered the cloaks and added some detail to the belts n stuff.


I was digging through old parts and came across a Yoda.  Even though all three members of his species that we have seen have been Jedi Masters, I figure there must be some more out there.  This one is a diminutive commando type.




I also was not happy with the General Kenobi that came in the battle pack, so here's my take.



Let me know what you think!
