JediJman's 12" Collection & Customz
« on: January 11, 2009, 02:54 PM »
Hey all,

I've been updating my 12" shelf the past few weeks and wanted to share a few pictures...

I'll start with a few pictures of the whole shelf:

Those paying attention will note that I've got a few customs in my collection.  Interested in hearing what people think about these.  Several are converted Barbies, which I have mixed feelings about including in my SW stuff, but I like the way they fit in with the others and frankly, they're a little more flattering than the female figs Hasbro churns out.

First up is is A'sharad Hett looking a little menacing:



Next is the first of my female customs - a Rebel Tech from Hapes:



This quickly led to the idea of upgrading Slave Leia.  I made a second version with a clearance Barbie and a spare FAO Leia/R2 I picked up for $5:



Last, but not least is a custom Jedi that started out as formal dressed Aayla Secura.  I had the robes from a spare POTF2 Obi-Wan, but never got around to figuring out a good way to make her tendrils.  I put her together as is and decided she'd make a nice Chiss Jedi instead:



I think that's about all I can squeeze into one shelf.  Let me know if you love it or hate it!

Nice collection and nice customs...but shouldn't the Chiss Jedi's hair be black and eyes red?
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Well, that would require some actual work.   ;)  Besides, Red Eyes look kind of evil.

Well, aren't they all "dolls?"   ;)  This is what happens when you start opening your stuff Mikey.

If I ever am at Target and I hear you and you aren't in the Star Wars isle I am definately going to look in the Barbie isle for you. You aren't "EXCITED" by Barbie toys are you? At least if you are it would be better than that guy in the Hot Wheels isle in KC.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Nice looking set ups there. And I'm not afraid to say it, those Barbies are HOT!

Been a while since I made any changes to this, but I had a SSC gift card to burn and picked up a spare Clone Armor Obi-Wan.  I have never opened any of my SSC, so it was nice to pry one out of the box.  They are super detailed and love the articulation, but joints are pretty loose.  Still, this is easily one of my favorite 12" figs.
