Cool!  That's a great paint job - it looks very clean, very factory.
I like the black and silver astromech, nice color choice.
Do you have a pilot for it?  Which jedi gets to ride this?  8)

If you check out the customs of us thread you will see who pilots this bad boy. And thanks for the comments fellas!  ;D

You are very creative dude, I love the fighter, I am into making playsets and customizing ships myself.

Vabeesh from the Republic Battle of Jabiim arc. Pretty simple. Has all articulation. I need to put some battle wear on him.

Wow, I like it!  I remember that Jedi from the comic too.  I think I need to copy this custom of yours.  It's really good, and I like the robe on him.

Thanks Chewie! The robe is from the Target Accessory pack from a few years ago. The body is a ROTS Kit Fisto. Head and hands are from Zuckuss of course. I cut the hands farther in so I could trim them down so I could place them in the arms.

Findswoman will sure like this one. :) I do too as a matter of fact. I wish gand parts were more readily availible, I'd definitely copy that one, too. It is a real nice custom. :)

Thanks Ryan. I was lucky finding an extra Zuckuss figure on the cheap.

looks good metal the only thing besides a little battle damage, might i suggest simply repainting his boots and the inner robes that show through around the neck and chest chest so it doesn't look too much like kit fisto and him shop at the same jedi store.  you know how weird it would be to show up at one of those jedi temple shin digs wearing the same outfit as somebody else.  "how embarrassing" as Yoda might say.

Nice job MetalJedi!  I did basically the same thing a while ago, but I used a Bust-Ups Zuckuss for the parts (didn't want to sacrifice my only Zuckuss figure  ;)).  Personally, I would leave him without weathering, just to be consistent with the rest of the Jedi figures.
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Time for another update. Nothing real special. Just a "concept" Commander Cody. I haven't seen any pic of him in the v1 helmet so I made one myself. All fan fic. And nothing to fancy added a scope from a Jango helmet and a antenna from a #41 ROTS clone to him and painted him orange. The color is off but I like it.

Thanks DN! Here's another WIP. My ROTS version of Barriss Offee. I used the screamer head AOTC of her for the head of course filled the mouth with sculpy and painted over it. Then drilled into the head so I can use it on the Luminara neckpost. Still have to paint the torso the right color and get rid of the gauntlets.

Very cool, the Cody is cool, I could see that being his first set of armor or something before the phase 2 uniforms.

The Barriss Offee though I think is one of your best works yet!  I can't get over how great a sculpting job you did!

Thanks Chewie. Like I said the Cody was no real great custom. It was just something I threw together since I have a gang of those Red Clone Commanders from AOTC.

Thanks for the comment about the Barriss Offee. It was a real pain trying to match the color to her face. And I kinda messed up when I was drilling into her head but Im gonna leave it for now and maybe wait till Im finished to see if I can fix it.
