Mine is still coming together. Since I'm a programmer, I'm designing mine to be a Jedi Slicer. That is why I like the eletronic components on his head. I've had to make the 3po leg a little longer so I added a section from his other leg. I think he will be receiving a new hand and possibily a wrist gauntlet computer.


I made a clone (not posted yet) custom and i gave him like a wrist gauntet. All I did was cut apart a CW arc trooper's left gauntlet. I had a hard time cutting it 'cuz I used my X-acto.(dont have a dremel yet :-[ :'()

Ok, here's my Custom of Me - if I were a Jedi, maybe this is what I'd look like.



I haven't named him yet, but I'll probably have him show up in the Rykrof Enloe series, but not as "me" but as some other Jedi.

He's made from the SAGA Outlander Club Obi Wan, a head and hands from an XD figure, and repainted quite a bit.

That's pretty good Chewie. I like shocked look on his face.

Since I'm a programmer at my company, I'm taking the approach of me as a Jedi Slicer. Since I always have the latest gadgets around, I figure in the future half my body will be replaced with internet links and robotics. Here is the unpainted version of Jedi Slicer self.



I plan on finishing my custom of me this weekend so I can spend more time on Snoova and my terroriest.

What about a Spy Kids 2 figure? There is a five pack that comes with a kid that looks simular. You would have to paint the hair but it might work.

Oh, Phruby, that's a great custom you are making.  I love the cybernetic head!  Wow, great idea.

hey Smarty you should try to find the Will Robinson figure from the Lost in Space line a few years back...

Will Robinson

Not a great picture, but I have one of those somewhere and it's a pretty good match.

Nice custom of yourself CHEWIE  ;D
Are you going to give him a Star-Warsy version of your name?

Phruby - looking cool so far, I like the "slicer" aspects to him.  The wires on the top of his head are a nice touch.  I can't wait to see the finished version.

Smarty - That figure that jokabofe linked to would be a very good head for you.  As for the body, what about a Zett Jukassa figure?  He's a little taller than the Ep. 1 Anakin figure
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.

 :o large pics scare me  :P j/k

Phruby, your slicer is looking really cool, i like the way you incorporated the ep.1 3PO parts...can't wait to see it painted.

Chewie, i like your Jedi a lot...the expression on the face is great and i like the paint app. on the boots.

i really need to get mine started...things have just been crazy here, my husband had to have a root canal amongst everything else  :'(
