A lot of sculpting I guess. Looking at the pose the dangergirl is still in, I think he took the original fig as base and went nuts on it with sculpting materials and paints :)

I like her  8)
Do you think he used an Epic Force Stormtrooper for the armor?  The sculpting is really good - either he's really talented (which is probably the case) or he stole the armor from an existing figure...

If you look at the armor legs, you can see they are nothing more than strips of sculpty on the leg itself. It's an illusion that there is actually armor there. It doesn't look that hard to duplicate.

Wow, that Jedi Temple scene is very nice, but the BIN is $700 for it, and the figures are not included.

I'm pretty happy to see that Jedi Temple auction actually.  It gives me a template idea for making my own.

I was working on one of those Fe-male stormtroopers..but to 3 3/4 scale.
I got the idea while working on the Betty Droid.
That one is nice though.

All right...Daddy likes this one A LOT.




He's got some additional shots and helmets as well, check out the link. I think they're worth every penny.

Yes, well worth the money if you can afford it! 

Ricky UK now seems to be selling a lot of stuff on ebay.  This Mawhonic is cool, but I don't have the desire to overpay for something like this now that it's relatively easy to get parts from Ask Aak to make your own -



Still, this is one damn fine custom!

That Clone commando helmet custom is incredible!



  Are you guys sure it's RickyUK selling that stuff? He sent me a PM warning me about a guy who bought his stuff just to make molds to mass produce and resell his stuff and asking me both if he offered to buy anything of his off of me and asking me not to buy off of that guy. I think he may sell on e-bay, so maybe we should check with Ricky before any of you bid or just to make sure it's really Ricky selling that stuff.

Well, I think it's Ricky selling the stuff... whoever it is, is selling only things I've seen on his site.  And it's in the UK... also, the descriptions look like Ricky would have written them.  I could be wrong, but I think it's probably Ricky.

Oh crap. I already bid on the CZ-3. Well, we will see what happens. Besides, is it wrong to buy a custom figure and make castings of it to sell? Since you bought it, it is your property. I guess this goes under bootlegging.

I think that I would be pretty pissed if somebody did that (made casts of a figure that I had made).  Of course, I don't really sculpt original pieces or anything like that, so I don't have anything to be worried about, however, if I had put a lot of time into sculpting something and I sold it to a guy who, in turn, made molds of it and "mass produced" it, I don't think I would be too happy.
