and enjoys it more than i ever would (having it sit on a shelf, unseen, and probably dusty.)

Exactly why I decided to start selling some :).


And Chewie, what else is RS for if not to pimp out work... it's not like anyone ever gives constructive criticism on customs there.  It's mainly... that's kewl  :)

For me its a hobby and not art. I think of myself as a model maker and not an artist. Kind of like those guys that worked on the original star wars along time ago but no were as good. To me, it's a way to have a cool figure without waiting for the commerical version. 

It does however make me feel a little uneasy about people that treat this hobby as a business <cough>mrtanner<cough>. That kind of stuff reminds me of the cheap knockoff pictures you see on street corners being sold out of a van. I think it lowers peoples perception of this hobby.

Oh great, Phruby...now we're going to have to fight with the guy again!  ;)

I have trouble selling customs I make, as I kind of form an attachment to each one I do, and it's hard to part with them. Well, except for clones. I can make clones all day and then part with most of them, because I'm not as invested in them since to me, they're just a repaint.

I am fond of my ARC troopers. though.   :P

Hmmm... I was talking about someone totally different.  Guess there's more than a few people out there that we don't necessary agree with.  But, for every *bad* seed, there's dozens of good people in the customizing community.   :)

I second that.

Back to ebay customs. Here is one that you don't see everyday. Well maybe you do because the guy made three different versions. War is hell.

I saw those yesterday, I thought they were very creative. Espescially the pics of the clones face showing through the helmet!

Wow, those are really cool to look at.  I need to employ some better customs like that for dead Clones in my photonovels.

I don't know if this is the right place to post it, but I just received a PM trough Ebay fro ma few fellow sellers. They warned me for this guy ani2luke85. This guy has been bidding on all kinds of custom auctions and getting very high prices. But he never pays. He seems to have more then one alias. Others are 501stclone and Vadertater92. So watch out for this punk! He has really bad feedback as well. I blocked him from my auctions.

Congratulations Glassman on the closing price of your clone trooper custom. The original bidder came back didn't he.

It looks like it. Odd it took him so long to do so. I know he's pritty good at selling to people who ask him (me being one of them), but I never sptooted his work on ebay before.
