 Thanks for the comments, guys! To reply to Ryan's comment about the WIP Luke, For some reason I kinda like the neck, even if it does look a little long. I have no idea why, but it kind of gives it that comic-book/animated feel to it while not being too cartoony, so my bespin luke is naturally not the most accurate (Especially the arms, no pockets on the bicep and the cuffs on the cleeves are lose instead of fitten to his wrists), but it does look good to me. That, and I'm too lazy to shave down the neck some.

 (Oh, and the arms I used are from SAGA Captain Antilles, so is one of the hands, and the other hand is from the SAGA Lobot)

I just can't believe how far along you've come in customizing.  Not that your earlier work wasn't great, but all of a sudden I'm being totally blown away by your work!  Wow!!!

 Lol. I've actually been customising for a long time, but haven;t really gotten into the complex parts swapping or just plain painting up until recently. Also, I've made a lot of customs that I haven't taken picture of cause they're horrible, but they've been good lesson-learner figures so to speak, making me conscious of what does and what doesn't work.

 Oh, and I'll post a WIP Dav'sa Arman in mandalorian armour soon. :D

I know what you mean, I have a lot of stuff that I made several years back that I haven't shown... actually a lot of them have been disassembled and thrown into fodder piles for future customs.   ;)

Just post the WIP pics, sometimes just doing that inspires you to finish up.

 hey all, Just upping my thread to let avaryone know I'll be updating soon with a new custom: Dav'sa Arman in Mandalorian armour. It's basically a repaint, but It's one of my favourite customs yet and I made a custom blaster rifle that I really like. I hope you guys enjoy when I post it!

UPDATE!

 I finally found time to take pics of my self-custom Dav'sa Arman in mandalorian armour. I feel pretty satisfied with it, but I really think I should have painted his jumpsuit greyish-tan then given him a wash of black. Maybe I'll revise it later, but I'm actually quite satisfied with it as is.

 I need to better my photography skills, cause you can't see the scratches and battle damage I pained on his armour. My favourite is a "paint scratch" scar going down the right side of his  helmet. I'll tale a pic of that later.

That looks really good. I would tone down the black weathering on his shins, though. It kind of stands out looking at it. I really like his gun and his waist belt/harness though. That's nice.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Thanks. I'll try to take better pics later. I made a nice mandalorian carbine/rifle for him that I think suits him more than this sniper rifle.

I could have sworn I already replied to this, because I know I already saw it...

Great use of parts, looks like an entirely unique figure.  I especially like the Djas Puhr holsters.

Something about the jumpsuit might look a little odd... I think maybe paint the whole thing flat black, then do a gray dry brush perhaps?

I'll try that. The flash actually makes the black coat look shiny, but it's dull. I was thinking of doing a grey base coat with a wash of black-brown mixture. how does that sound?

I love that Mando custom!  The paint scheme is simple (nice touch) and the weathering came out well.  The holsters are a great touch - I really have to pick up some Djas Puhrs just for those holsters!

Any updates on that Ultimate Jango you were working on?
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.
