MetalJedi's Customs Updated 01.07.08!
« on: May 21, 2005, 01:26 PM »
Well I decided to put up scans of my work that Ive recently done. I'll start putting up older work as well when I get them scanned. Now I know these aren't the best but I like them.

Kyle Katarn.


Blue Target Clone.

Hey, I love the Katarn!!!  That's a genius thought using the Madine head - works perfect, and really doesn't look like Madine.   :)

I'm guessing that's a Cloud Car pilot body for him?  What else did you use?

I used the Cloud Car Pilot body and Bespin Guard Arms. I took the idea from the New Guide to Essential Characters that came out a few years ago.

Thanks for the compliments Chewie  :)

I really like that Katarn! That's a body I wouldn't have thought to use for him, but it really is perfect! Very nice!

I like the clone as well, but having done so many myself, I'm really burnt out on them. *Sigh!*

Great customs MetalJedi, I like them both...

Like DD, Clones can draw a little bit of a burnout but I like a repaint as much as the next guy.  There's some talk of printable decals possibly in the works so people can make their own a little easier too.  Like astromech repaints, you see a lot of them it seems, but that's alright... 

The Kyle's very creative I think...  The color on the shirt, and the pants, looks fantastic, and the pads on the shoulders look really great.

I think the Madine head is creative...  I'm not sold on it looking like Katarn exactly, but the paintjob helps it and it does look good.  I think Hasbro's head is a little closer (but still not perfect...  It's not close enough to the DF or JK Katarn for me...  Actually it looks more like a JO Katarn than anything, which is ironic).  The head is not a big issue though, it's creative and close at least.

If I'd suggest one thing, a holster for his Bryar gun would look good and help him match up to some pics of him more, but it'd be a bit of work too.  I like him though, he looks pretty great.

I'm really  liking that Kyle Katarn - great job and clever use of parts!
I'm a big fan of clones, so I like your blue Target clone  ;D
Great job!

First off thanks for all the feedback guys. As for the holster  I still have the CC Pilots holster but it didnt work very well. Not sure how I would go about it.

Awesome man!  Very cool and always fun to see Vos customs.   I wonder if you can somehow make the yellow on his face stand out a bit more, maybe a thin dark outline around it? 

The ARC is nice too, don't think I've ever seen a yellow version.

MJ-

The Katarn and the Vos are fantastic! Great use of madine's head, it really looks like Kyle. I love that CCP body, I really need to get several more :) Vos looks great as well, what head is that?

The clones look good to, nice and clean. And it is cool to see a yellow ARC.

Keep it up! :)

How did I miss these earlier today?

Great Quinlan Vos. I love seeing customs of him...I haven't been brave enough yet to try one of my own.

I like the Yellow ARC as well. It's a fun fan-fic custom that makes sense in the SW Universe...

Thanks for all the feedback guys. Its very much welcomed.

SLC -the head I used was from the Battlefield Earth line. It was the Jonnie figure. Just added the first dread from Eeth Koth and painted the hair brown. In my opinion it looks the best.

DD- You should try a Quin custom. I really had fun with this one.

I want to make a Clone Wars custom of him to update.
