Here are a couple custom clones I've made until Hasbro gives us what we want…

Beautiful!  Those are some of the best Clone repaints I've seen.  All of them look great, but the green one is my favorite... probably because the blue and yellow ones seem to have been done a lot by other customizers too.

 :P

I like 'em all, but like CHEWIE, the green one is my favorite.  Very nice and clean lines.  Good weathering on all of them too.   ;D
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.

Those card inserts turned out great!  Good job on them.  I've never tried doing custom packaging (it doesn't help when my most advanced picture editing program is MS Paint :P)

JJB, you did a fantastic job on all 3 of these. They look great on the card as well, I'd take any of these over what we are likely to get from Hasbro. I think you could try dirtying Bly up a little bit more, he wasn't quite so clean. Keep up thegreat work I look forward to seeing more of your stuff! :)

I see Jayson forgot to post in here and this peice is WAY too cool to let it go un-appreciated by a wider audience:




This thing is really cool and I was impressed at the fact that there is no support peg attaching the Clone to the base or anything.  The Clone is still completely posable, it's just perfectly balanced!

Way cool, Jayson!

Hasbro, i hope you are looking, those are really cool and the yoda is the best i have seen in a long time, they should sell it as a deluxe figure that way instead of the one with the fliying mosquito.

Thanks for all the praise guys… sorry if the photos aren't loading at times, the Yakface server these photos are on is acting up today.

FYI. I am working on some custom packaging similar to the 25th Anniversary 2-packs from a few years ago.
Stay tuned.

Your troopers a very well done and the packaging is the icing on the cake! On a side note - I feel that many of the customizers on this board including yourself, are out doing Hasbro by leaps and bounds - We gotta be careful! Hasbro may just decide with all the customizers out there, why spend the money on repaints! :)
