That Jurassic Park head is from an Alan Grant figure from the JP3 line. ;)

I like the Porkins body with the Snivvian head.

Me too.   ;)

It gives him that "plump" look you'd expect from a pig-like ceature.  I had that Takeel head for a long time, never quite sure what to do with it.  Turned out pretty good with just a minor paint job to liven him up.

Another new figure...

In the meantime, here are a couple new figures to ogle...

Jedi Master Obi-Wan (Ben) Kenobi:
NEW PIC COMING SOON
(clicky the pictures for larger photos!)

I was a little disapointed with the vOTC Ben's Robe, so I thought I'd try my hand at a Ben whose robe isn't waaaaay out of scale.   :P

This Ben was crafted from:
PotF2 Obi-Wan head (w/gray drybrush to highlight his hair)
Flashback Obi-Wan Torso/Legs (with tan/brown weathering and the skirt cut down)
Ep1 Jedi Dual Qui-Gon Jinn Arms
Soft Goods Robe (re-hemmed and recut)

The reworked soft-goods robe is what make him a great figure IMHO.  He might not be as posable as the vOTC, but he fills in nicely in this Cantina scene on my shelves.  :)

That soft goods robe looks great - it's so much more tamed down that the oversized one that comes with the VOTC Ben.  You said the robe was re-hemmed and recut -- did you use the VOTC robe?  It looks like a slightly different material.

It started out as one of those soft-goods robes from one of the Ep1 accessory packs.  I re-sewed it so that the robe fit the particular figures instead of the "one-size-fits-all" that Hasbro gave it.

Never sewed a thing in my life.  Guess it would be nice to know how to though... I've always wanted to be able to actually make a realistic looking bed for Padme's apartment on Coruscant, and I'd probably need to know how to sew to do that.

Great job on the sg Cloak!  It looks much better than hasbro's original version. 
I really need to learn how to sew, there are so many things that I need to do (especially since I've been dabbling in 12" scale Star Wars customs).  I taught myself how to braid for the sake of customizing (hell yeah Wookie Braids! :P) so I guess learning how to sew is a small price to pay...
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.

With all the folks working on the Group challenge, I had to go back and re-visit my old Roron Corobb:

NEW PIC COMING SOON

I did some trim work on his skirt and painted some highlights on him.  Not really a new custom so I don't want to post him in the other thread (he's not really Clone Wars accurate anyway), but I did want to show off the improvements/updates that I made to him.

I've finally had a chance to work on some things, so hopefully I'll have some more pictures later this week.   :)

I think your new Roron Cobb looks very good Jeff, one of your best customs.

Man, I had to dig to find this...

Guess I better get some pictures taken to get this thing updated.  For now, my first entry for this month's custom challenge:

NEW PIC COMING SOON
clicky the image for a bigger photo

Head/Helmet = PotF2 Death Star Trooper
Rest = PotJ Imperial Officer

I was painting/priming a bunch of other parts tonight for upcoming custom figures/projects and I had time to sneak this simple head-swap in as my first entry for the month. 

Don't know if you can tell (it's most noticible on the torso), but I did a gray dry-brush/wash on him to try to pull some detail out of the jumpsuit.  I think it turned out well for a 20 minute project.  :)

That looks good Jeff, I did a couple of these before too, but yours looks better.  For some reason mine looks awkard, as if the neck is too long on both of them.  Did you shorten the neck on yours, or maybe make the neck hole on the torso bigger?

 :)

Good looking solider there. I can totally see the drybrushing. It does make it look better. Is the head glued on or did you modify the neck post to make it fit?
