okay, I promise to update either tomorrow or the day after to post new pics of my customs. I've got an update on my self-mandalorian, Dav'sa Arman. I also have a new mandalorian, Silas, as seen in the comic book "Jango Fett: Open seasons". Also, an update on the not-quite-finished ultimate jango fett.

 (and hopefully I'll come up with some non-mandalorians soon. I just need more fodder)

UPDATE! A preview for the updated Dav'sa Arman mandalorian custom:



It's a preview because I'll take a better pic with natural sunlight tomorrow.



And the reason why I haven't updated in forever:

 I'm working on a very ambitious project and hopefully, but not likely, I'll finish by hallowe'en this year.

I'll let the two photos speak for themselves:

That Mandalorian custom looks great, he looks like he's been through some hard times ;)  I like the color scheme.

That costume is gonna be sweet - are you going to be an EU Madalorian or one of the Fetts ... or is it a secret?  ;)
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.

 I'm making a boba fett. I've been doing reseach into the more cost-effective ways to make one without sacrificing quality. I was told that this brand of garbage cans is a good thickness for armour and if you tilt the chest armour strategically (as seen in my pictures), the curviture of the oval-shaped can wil contour to yourself without having to manipulate it more.

I really like the color scheme on your Mandalorian.  The green and silver work really well together and I really like the kitbashed blaster!

Thanks! For the blaster, I wanted it to have a boba fett feel to it, but not look like any of boba fett's blasters exactly, so it looks sort of like a cross between his rotj and esb ee-3 rifles. I like to call it the EE-2, something that could be seen predating the original trilogy and used in the clone wars era.

Cool, thank Mandalorian looks like he's seen a lot of battle!  Good coloring for him too.

The costume looks like it's gonna be very cool too, good idea using a trash can to cut out the curved chest armor!

 :P

I promise to update today with CLEARER pics of Dav'sa arman and his new and improved mandalorian armour, and of a custom dollar store gun I thought looked star wars-ish (Kinda like a combination between leia's holdout blaster from ANH and Han's Blas-Tech DL-44)

Here's the update I promised, as well as the better quality pics of the Dav'sa Arman repaint. compare the newer version to the older one on page 4. I think it's quite the improvement. This is my favourite custom yet!



Helmet/torso detail:







Here's Silas from issue #2 of Jango fett: Open seasons.





And I'll squeeze in a trandoshan slaver while I'm at it.

Both of those guys look top notch.  I really like the trandoshan, good use of parts.  The paint job on the Mandolorian looks amazing.

Thanks!

 I had no idea how reflective the paint I used on dav'sa was until those close-up pics though. The green's reflected off of a lot of the helmet!

Great looking figures mate Dav'sa Arman looks all beat up and the silver and green comes together very well.

Silas looks good I like the jango style feel to him alot

The trandoshan is very well put togther I like the fact that you have'nt gone with to much armour especially for a slaver well done.

thanks for the comments, guys!


 Under the helmet, my silas custom looks like a mangled, mutilated slave I pilot jango head. I plan in changing that soon into replacing it with a ball-jointed luke dagobah head with the hait painted black if I can find another one.
