 Whoo, I've been on Jedidefender's Customizing forums for a while without even posting some of my customs! Well, after much procrastination, here are some:

Nikto Jedi









Super-duper articulated Clonetrooper

 Since everyone's done one, I figured I'd do one, except I have no dremel, so I shaved the Tank Gunner's pelvis into two pegs that would fit into the SA clonetrooper's pelvis pegholes. It was easy but took time. I really love the end result:









   This is my late submission for Chewie's Smuggler Challenge: Balosar Spacer/Smuggler  Fenn Sleazebaggano. He's a relative of Elan Sleazebaggano, the low-life at the Outlnader club who tried to sell Obi-Wan some deathsticks. Incidentally, Fenn is Elan's Drug smuggler, among other odd jobs.

Cool customs, that Nikto Jedi looks much better than the hasbro version.
Ain't nothing wrong with a SSA Clonie!  ;)
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.

Alrighty!  You've got some definite talent, what took you so long!   ;)

Nikto Jedi - This totally blows Hasbro's version out of the water... Kit Fisto body?

SA Clone - Wow, that looks out of this world!  Imagine if Hasbro made a Clone like that!

Fenn - Great job!  Coincidence, I guess... I made a member of that species too (haven't shown any pics yet) using that Luke head too!  Great job, and I really like the gun you used for him, and the Clone Pilot's body works well.  I might suggest painting his hair a bit to make him look a bit more different than that Luke.

I've just become a great fan of your work... hope to see more soon!

 :P

Wow, you guys guessed (Almost) all the right parts! I'm impressed!

 I just love that upside-down luke head, I wanted to put it to use. Fenn was almost going to be a zabrak spacer, but I made a last-minute decision and I think it turned out great. You can't see it from the picture, but the neck is slightly our of proportion in that it's too long. I like it, though: It doesn't bother me when I look at it from a front view, but when I look at it from the back, he looks like a frigging giraffe!

 You guesses on the Nikto Jedi were impressive! I did use the Saga Nikto Jedi's head and hands, AND I used the Kit Fisto Body, but what I really like about this is his legs. I would bever have thought to use them if I didn't wee them in my spare parts bin, but there they were: a Pair of Saga Lando in skiff guard disguise legs. The boots just go so well with the nikto! I don't know wbout you, but whenever I think "Nikto", I always remember that great battle scene on the skiff, and the boots just remind me of that; which is why I thought it so befitting for the nikto.

Cool, I thought the legs on the Nikto Jedi looked a little different than Kit Fisto's, but I couldn't place them.  Great idea, they fit the figure perfectly.

Yep, perfect choice of legs.  I had noticed that there seemed to be some sort of straps above the boots, but thought you had painted it.

nikto rocks! haha

All very well done, I like that Clone Trooper the best too. and the sleeze bag is pretty cool. it's almost amazing how that pilot body works so well once it's repaintd.

Perennial, you can't tease us like this and stop.  The masses have decided unanimously that you must update again soon.   ;)

heh. Once I get money for paints, I'll show you all my Jango fett. Or I can take a Work In Progress pic.

 Also, I'm still working on my Jaster Mereel. I need pilot jango legs I'm getting from e-bay any time soon.

 Yep. Jaster's the mandalorian who took jango under his wing and taught him everything he knew.
