Nice Mandalorians, I especially like Silas.  What arms did you use for Silas?  it doesn't look like a VOTC Fett elbow joint  :-\

This is too cool for words:

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.

Thanks, gregorbian.

 One of the arms from the elbow down is a VOTC fett and the other side is an ROTS pilot obi-wan, shaved down with a jango removable armor gauntlet slapped onto it.

 I'll update this soon with a dav'sa arman in non-mando battle fatigues and an update on the boba fett body armor plates I posted a few pages back. I'm dremeling them out as we speak.

 Do you remember tearaway pants? I'm going to use buttons like those tho snap the armour onto the vest when I get enough money to get a vest :P:P

I promised and update soon, and here it is! It's my improved Dav'sa Arman (Self-portait) custom

Here's a pic of the old dav'sa arman



And here are pics of the new and improved Davsa:





Images are a bit blurry because I'm a horrible photographer, but as soon as my next update comes, I'll post better pics of him. My next update will be of two Works-In-Progress.

Ooo! That looks pretty nice Perennial. The second v. is fantastic! What'd you use for parts? & which clone arms are those?

Great Looking Mando. You did an especially great Job
 on the Paint Aps. The Battle Scaring is very convincing.

 I really like the Parts mix on Davsa. Very Original.

Good Job!

Keep it up.

That's a great update to a custom figure already made.  I remember a while ago someone suggested a group project where we improve (or make a new version) of a custom that we originally created.  This is a great example of why that would be a fun project.

I also love the backdrop for the updated picture.  Whats the story with that piece?
