hey guys,
thanks for all of the great comments, they are much appreciated.

chewie- i like the name you came up with and will use it, thanks

darty ennis- all i did with the saber is glue on a green blade with a piece of a staple in between the hilt and blade for strength

commander cuda - i am actually in the process of painting the lower half of a bacta tank luke's legs in a maul tattoo pattern to go in another tank, and then i am building a diorama of palpy's personal vault.

again thanks for the comments and i'll be adding more shortly

Hey boys and girls.
Sorry for not posting much, I rarely have time to read and see all of your wonderful customs, let alone post my own.
But, I finally got around to finishing up a few more.
Here they are:

First one is my Chiss (Thrawn's species?) Jedi master Stark Mebwan


Here is his padawan Hoilon Seija


This one i put together from my sa bacara custom  Special ops clone


Now I know that everyone has probably made this one in one form or another.  Obi-Wan in clone gear.


And finally we have a SA Red Arc Trooper


Well, there you have it folks, any comments or critics are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for checking out my customs.

Nice work Jon!  I really like that Chiss Jedi, probably my favorite from your update.  The face mask thing is cool - did you sculpt that?

The female Jedi Padawan is also really well done, the clone arms look good.  What is the base figure, I can't figure it out?

The clones look good, you can never see enough ARC Troopers!

I like the Obi-Wan in clone wars gear, I really need to make one of these guys already  ;)
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.

Cool, I'm glad you were able to update.  Don't worry about not having a lot of time, this hobby comes after our real lives.   :)

All of these are cool.  I'll pick a point or two about each one that I noticed.

Stark Mebwan - I saw that figure so many times, now I wish I had bought one of those Overkills. What you did is great - the paint I think on his tunic is a little rough, but I still like figure.  Great idea making him a Chiss.

Hoilon Seija - This little lady is hot.  I really would like a recipe.  I love the use of parts, all I can tell so far are the AOTC Clone Preview arms I think and maybe the legs from the Opee Qui Gon Jinn?

Bacara - Great paint job, a very cool design/paint scheme.

Obi-Wan - We all know and love this Jedi Master, good to see another version of him.  The Lando cape works well.  Funny, I made one over the weekend just like that for a friend but didn't show pics because I was rushed.  Great work.

Red Arc - I like it.  He looks a lot tougher than the average clone, just as he should.  Good weathering too.

 :P

I like how you used the Overkill head for that Chiss Jedi. Very nice. I also like the female padawan and the use of the Baroness head. You got the clone arms to work well there. Very nice set of jedi.

That female head is from Chameleon, Baroness' sister.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the great comments.

This is the first time I have mixed GI Joe parts with Star Wars, and it seemed to work out well.

For Stark I used a GI Joe Overkill head, and ROTS Agen Kolar body with the skirt cut down, and then a good painting.

For Hoilon I used a vintage Baroness head with the glasses whittled of with an x-acto knife, Opee w/Qui-gon legs, AOTC clone pilot arms, SAGA deluxe flipping Dooku pelvis, and SAGA Luminara Undulli torso and cut down cape. Followed by a good painting.

The special ops clone is a Bacara body, CLONE WARS blue ARC kama, clone commander head, and POTF2 at-st driver's rifle. The paint i mixed with cobalt blue and gray.

The Obi-Wan is made from the separation of the twins OB-1, arms and legs from a #6 quick draw clone, saga deluxe clone on speederbike helmet, and potf2 general Lando cape. No paint.

The ARC is made from a red clone commander body with most red paint removed, kama from same figure, viewfinder and pauldron from CLONE WAS blue ARC, head left over from my SA clone pilot custom, and two POTF2 Dengar pistols cut apart. and then a good painting.

Again I'm glad that you enjoyed these and will have some more up soon.
Thanks

Jon(vader419)
