Nice Mandalorian!  I'm not too familiar with Jaster, but that's a great looking custom!  The paintjob looks really clean and the parts are great.  What legs did you use?

The gun looks pretty badass, although I agree that a little drybrushing will help bring out the details.  A little weathering would be cool too, but don't do too much because your paint job looks great as it is!  8)

 Thanks, Greg! I used the Saga Jango Pilot Legs. Those are my all-time favourite armored mandalorian legs cause they're great for neutral stances.

The figure is great, but I think I like the custom weapon even more. They both look excellent.

FINALLY UPDATED!

 I'll start with my "Self-customs" submission: Myself as a Retired mandalorian soldier-turned Journeyman protector.

 Backstory: Dav'sa Arman was once a mandalorian soldier serving under Jaster Mereel's personal unit-- Headhunter company; which specialized in reconnaissance and covert operations and were characterized by their darker armour colourations. While under Jaster's command, Dav'sa served as a commander and was with the mandalorians well past Jaster's death.

 He served under Jango until the unfortunate incident at Galidraan, where he, as did most of the mandalorians who didn't die, went his own way. Some went onto become bounty hunters, but Dav'sa had other things in mind.

 He went to Concord Dawn to a village and became Journeyman protector up until the clone wars, when a mysterious man in familiar armour named Spar comes to him with a proposition...

 Last but not least are two works-in-progess. Bespin Luke Skywalker and a Removable helmet, non cruddy jango fett.

Whoa, nice pics (could use some cropping though  :P).

Dav'sa Arman - Great work!  He looks plain (which I think is good) and like he's trying to lead a simpler life from what he had been used to as a Mandalore Merc. 

Jeeb - As I already mentioned, I think that this is an excellent custom.  One of the best parts usage that I have ever seen.  Everything ties together perfectly.  I also like that you made a male Ubese Bounty Hunter.  I had been trying to figure out how to make that work, but never knew which parts to use.  Nice job!

Luke Bespin - Looking good so far!  I'll wait until you finish him though...

Jango Fett - Awesome!  Great idea!  I really can't wait to see how this turns out.  It looks like it will be the definitive Jango Fett  ;D  How are you going to fill in the gap in his waist?  Do you have to shave doen the torso peg?  :-\

Keep us posted!

 Thanks for the comments, Gregorbian!


 For Jango, I plan to use a dremel (Well, first I plan to BUY a dremel) to dremel a hole in the pelvis shaped like the torso peg (which is kind of like a "D" shape), so it slides in nicely and so that I don't have to sacrifice waist articulation.

 All I need for Luke is to paint his boots, maybe dry pruch him a bit, and get a VOTC han belt for him. if anyone can provide me with a VOTC han belt and blaster, I'd really, REALLY appreciate it!

 Yeah, for Dav'sa, I wanted to go for the sort-of-generic look for him, yet keep the militaristic aspect of him, so he's got a uniform-looking shirt with shoulder armour and pads on, plus the green on his pants give that militaristic feel to it.

Wonderful update.

Dav'sa Arman -

I really like the use of parts here, it's perfect.  I commented some in the other thread on this one, but I really love the different pieces you used to assemble him.  Very realistic looking character.  Well done!

Jeeb -

What can I say to improve this custom?  Nothing!  It's awesome, and once heck of a cool idea.  Definitely one of the more interesting figures I've seen anyone make, and a wonderful variety of differnet parts that just look like they were made to go together!

Luke -

He already looks better than my attempt at this.  The legs look perfect, mine for some reason doesn't look like it should.  I am looking forward to the final product.

Jango -

Looks like you are going to create something that Hasbro has yet to give us, a well done Jango Fett.  Can't wait to see how this one finishes up.

 :P

awesome ubese bounty hunter great use of parts and paint scheme, i may have to try my hand at it.  i just finished a, i guess AU, version of bespin luke this looks really good definate improv to hasbro's.  what arms are those?  also  i have my luke with a VOTC han holster if you have a spare you should try it on him, it kind of looks like he's missing something.  and finally onto jango, off to a good start i can't wait to see what this will finally  look like i've been trying to think of a way to do this but have come up dry, this looks very very promising.

 Thanks for the comments, guys! And if anyone has a spare VOTC han belt and blaster, I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands!

  For the Bespin Luke, I used the SAGA Bespin Luke figure.

Great Update!

Dav'sa Arman - Simple but it is still a very good custom. I think a little drybrushing would help it.

Jeeb - I commented on this the other day in the CCC thread, but I feel the need to again. This thing blows me away every time I see it. The combination of parts is fan-*******-tastic. :) The Jedi parts don't even look Jedi and the Royal Guard boots were a great choice. I had no idea that was a Dooku skirt.

Luke Bespin - You are off to a good start. I think I'd give the pants another coat of the bases color. The neck look a little long to me, I'd shorten it as well.

Jango Fett  -

That pose is killer. If I can find an extra VOTC Fett or 2, you've inspired me to attempt this myself. :)
