Does anyone else think Darth Ripley looks ever so slightly like Nicole Kidman in this pic? Too bad they never made any Nicole Kidman figures. But then, maybe it's just me.

I wouldn't use the Mara Jade head though, Ripley. That head would not do you justice. That figure was beaten with the uglysaber. Go with a Spy Troops Scarlett head instead.

Thanks for the nice words DD  :) funny you would mention that resemblance to nicole kidman, b/c when my husband and i got married the judge said the same thing to me.

i'm gonna try and get a Scarlett head...Mara Jade is too much on ebay anyhow, i guess she's still pretty popular with everyone out there.

i got my husband's 12" Biker Scout finished last night, so half of my project is done...just gotta move onto my own custom now.

Kids, kids, and more kids!  What are kids doing liking Star Wars???  Just kidding.  I think it's cool to have some younger collectors into it, especially into customizing.

 :P

 hey, you're filipino, too! :P

 I know this, I'm probably the world's only 6'3" filipino :D

Well, thank god for you and Findswoman on these boards. Even though you're both married, the mere presence of females on the site make us all less geeky.  ;)

Let me know if you have trouble scoring a Scarlett; I can hook you up.

Cody: Good to see younger customizers in here. It's nice to know we're spreading our sickness to the younger generation.  ;D

Oh gosh, Paul, I wish I could, but for two things:
1) The school year's begun, and...
2) The person who was sending me the Baroness had to evacuate from the New Orleans area, so I may not be able to get it for a while.  (No rush, though!)

But in any case, I'll be watching everyone's contributions with great interest! :)

I have yet to decide which body to use, and in deciding, I came up with this hilarious Work-In-Progress pic of my head (Or Captain Typho's if you want to get technical) on an ROTS Threepio body. I'll post pics later when my dad comes home with the camera.

Wait a minute, isn't this website for really geeky, die-hard "Star Wars" fans?

I was expecting a picture thread to be filled with "Comic Book Guy" esque mutants.

Everyone here is too damn good looking!

Sorry, folks, I won't be playing this game!  Good luck!

Is that because you look like the comic book guy?

Here is the beginnings of the head I'm using. This is a ep1 Naboo guard without his hat. He's going to be a slicer Jedi so he needs the eletronics on his head. I plan on using a ep1 Mace Windu body with some gloves for hands. I think he is going to be painted black or green. Maybe both.
