Ice Cream Maker Guy
« on: February 11, 2003, 10:53 AM »
 :)

Here is my custom with a reference photo









I boiled and popped a Skiff Guard Lando, shaved his hair back a little and painted it, and used the Imperial Officer for the jumpsuit and painted it the beautiful puke orange :)   I need to work on doing hands as I usually will just paint them black or make sure they have gloves so I don't have to match colors.  I also need a Dremel  :-[

The maker I made out of Sculpey and I also need to make a new one but I am happy with him for now until Hasbro makes one too...

PS Sign the Petition!!!

Ha, Ha. That's great.
If Hasbro dosen't make him, make him yourself.  :)
That's 2 customs I've seen now. Your's & that custom Lego on RS.
I wonder what a 12" figure of him will look like.  ;)
Good job.

Willrow lives!  Nice custom job Scott!

Glad that I also finally figured out who the hell that fool in the orange was that was hangin' out with the Emperor in your new Imperial Shuttle pictures!  Completely threw me for a loop there for a short while.  Glad to see ICMG has moved up in the world, and right into the Emperor's good graces...   :D

Now if only Hasbro would follow suit and make an official release of ICMG so you don't have to deal with fixing the hands on yours...   :)

Nicely done!  I wonder what it was that he was carrying in the movie.  He looks like he'd give up his life for that thing.

I haven't said this until now, but that custom is awesome... I hope someone at Hasbro gets a hold of one of these pics and gets some kind of motivation to put ICMG in the next Fan Choice Poll.

I agree Brad, of course I'll agree with any pro-ICMG sentiments :-*

Hasbro is too afraid to produce an ICMG because the fans love him so much.  They know there is no way they can get it right and fans would stop collecting for sure.  Hasbro is fearful of ICMG.  LOL!  

Nice custom :)

Now make him in Jabba's palace.  I forget what his name is supposed to be there.

Scott, how many sigs are you waiting to acquire before sending this to the attention of George Lucas?  And is there a way that I can see if I have signed it already?  I think I have signed it, but I'm not 100% on that.  LMK.

That's amazing, OCB!  I really love the work you did on him.  Hopefully Hasbro will take a hint and throw him in a Bespin 4 pack down the road   ;D

Also, be not afraid of Spuffy's Dorme Petition, located in my sig.  Not as many signatures as ICMG, but it did recieve notice (of sorts) in last month's Vogue magazine, which profiled Rose Byrne, the actress.

I'm working on finding parts for a Dorme custom.  I thought maybe Bariss would work, but I don't want an Unleashed Dorme.  Sigh.
