That's a nice Mace Windu, but I love the trooper. The paint is awesome and the use of canvas for his kama is sweet. I like the frayed look. Great work.

Great looking Coms Trooper he looks really dirty but without being over done and the colour markings on him are great . And Mace looks good the face reminds me of when there in teh arena fighting in AOTC te only thing I would do is in the second shot with the plastic robe is to dull it down a little as it looks a little shiny other then that great work.

That clone is amazing! I love the comm backpack and all the gear, and the chipped striping and the "dirt" splatters as well.

However, you might want to rearrange the pics from side-by-side to vertical alignment because it's making the page all stretchy. :-\

WIP KFC Anakin





I used a open flame to acheive some of the burn effect, painted over it and the burned it again.

I plan on making his cybernetic legs and connections to his left arm, hoping to create the ultimate pre/post-op VADER.

LMK what you guys think.

I think Battle droid lower legs come the closest to what they looked like?

Gruesome!  I can't wait to see how the whole display turns out.  You also might be able to use modified EV-9D9 or 8D8 legs (if you cut and repositioned some of the parts), although I'm not sure.  Maybe G.I. Joe B.A.T.S. figures?  Some of them have pretty good robotic parts.
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.

The Anakin is a good start Jay, definitely going to take the look of the figure Hasbro made to the look the film imbedded in our minds.  Your work's already going to be a good example of where Hasbro shows a sculpt beyond belief but a factory paintjob makes you sometimes think the sculpt isn't as nice as it actually is.

You're off to a gruesome custom, I look forward to updates man.

JJ great Baccarra, personally not too fond of softgoods but this looks really great.  paints apps: awesome the only thing i would've done would be to have removed the hasbro "scratches" those have always bothered me.

Here is my finished custom Mustafar Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi.

It was achieved by rubbing the costume with black pastels, cutting a few holes in the outfit and burning/singeing areas of it as well for an authentic effect. All in all, I think it turned out pretty well for my first attempt at something like this.

That looks great!  Nice work.
