I'm sorry to see CuDa won't be around.  Seemed like a misunderstanding that got blown way out of proportion...

Anyways, yes I need this figure.  I have the basic parts needed -

- VOTC Stormtrooper head
- ROTS SA Clone
- AT-TE Gunner helmet piece

But how to make the hood?  Sculpy?  I think I might have a talk with a fellow customizer who does commissions and see about him making the hood for me.

 :P

Why wouldn't a regular stormtrooper head work? Seems to look the same... Otherwise, yeah, sounds great.

Yeah, stick around then, if that's the case PML33.  We still probably don't want you advertising your friend's eBay auctions (by including a link), but we'd love to still discuss their excellent custom work!

So what ship will your friend be making next?

By fellow customizer I'm guessing you mean Owen? ;)

I found this clone today, that just happens to be his :) The clone itself pretty cool but I really like the mini dio it comes with, he's some sort of urban sniper.






I wouldn't be supprised to see Chewie get this guy. :P

Hi JediSpyke, and welcome!

You're right, a CT Stormtrooper head might work just fine... no reason to really destroy a wonderful VOTC Stormtrooper if not necessary.  I was just thinking about the neck knob on the SA Clone, and thought the VOTC Stormtrooper helmet would fit on it better?

SLC, yes I was referring to Owen!  He's the man.

That Urban Clone is cool, but I like the scene even better too.  I might have him make me a few more little outposts like he did for me on my Battlefront ones.

 :P

The VOTC stormies post is bigger than the SA Clone, or smaller I don't remebr which. ::) All I know is they don't swap too easy, it would take a bit of modification either way.

I really like that Speeder Bike display  :D

CHEWIE - how about using a Bust-Ups Stormtrooper head?  You can dremel out a little bit of the neck hole and it will fit fine over the ball-neck-joint.  I haven't tried swapping a VOTC Stormie head onto a SA Clone body, but considering that the only clone heads that are easily interchangeable are the Clone Commander and the #41 SA Clone, I wouldn't expect it to be an easy switch.

It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

thanks, Chewie... You can really tell a lot of the same folks end up making rounds in different customizing forums. I recognize several from here, Rebel Scum and FFURG. I'm sure there's lots more forums but I spend enough time going through just these 3!

As for the storm trooper... Yeah, I couldn't see carving up a $10 figure when a $5 (or cheaper if you use a POTF2 head) figure will do. Granted, you'll have to do more work to get that ball to fit in, but you can get a nice little stone ball sander for dremals...

Haha, yeah definitely!  I always type "-charm"  ;)

Ok, once or twice a week I check ebay to look at customs, not to buy, but to get ideas.  Check out this bad boy!!!  Whoa!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=101609&item=5984560541&rd=1





I want to make one or a few myself... also, this would be a great fan choice figure!

 :P

If I didn't know better, i'd swear that looks more like the artwork of Grievous, before the shuttle accident that left him basically a brain in a jar...just with a stormtrooper mask. Awesome work regardless

After an invite from Chewie, I wanted to thank everyone for everything they said about Faie.  Of all the clones, he was the one that impressed me the most visually.

Some of you i recognize from rebelscum, others are new.  I just wanted to take the time to say "Hi" and that there's some really great stuff on these boards!

Hi aeseven7, great custom clone there!  Glad to see that you're on JD! ;D

Welcome to JediDefender, aeseven7 and JediSpyke!  Nice to have you guys poke in here to check things out.  Hopefully you enjoy the friendly and cozy confines of JD.  Feel free to give any of the staff (or regulars) a holler if you've got any questions about anything...  Looking forward to admiring some of your fine custom work!  8)

That is a sweet clone aeseven...  He looks like he'd fit in well on a cold-weather planet where he just had to improvise a bit.

Good to see you and JediSpyke make a jump over too.  Peruse the other parts of the forum, you guys may find this to your liking since we try to keep things run well for our members and still keep the site more open and appealing to the "adults" in collecting as far as quality and whatnot.  Enjoy.
