First off, Metal Jedi, that looks great!  I really like this one and the green colors really set him apart from other Jedi.  Very well done.  I would suggest using a touch of white for dry brushing.  I think it would really bring out the details in this excellent custom that you have put together.

Coeli, you look like you could kick some serious ass in a bar fight.  I wouldn't want to piss you off.   :)

If you do make a custom of yourself, I do see the Obi Wan resemblance.

 :P

MetalJedi - awesome custom!  The colors you picked are great, I like that it's not very conventional in terms of jedi colors (like a true metalhead  ;)).  The "lining" of the cloak is a great touch and I think it works fine.  Awesome stuff!

Coeli - You could use some of those early POTF2 figures, although I'm not sure what head to use....

Hey Coeli,

You are with the customizing family here and I for one do not make fun of anyone, in fact I think it is very cool that we at least get to see what we look like in real life & in fiction, TRU has a line of soldiers that are like gi joe only cooler and their sculpts are amazing, I think I saw one that looks like you, you should check them out.

Good job Tijuana.  I would love to see a pic with the robe off (I know that sounds dirty).

Well, Meta its been said, but great looking jedi. Color choice is very nice. I would take chewies suggestion and add some color to it by drybrushing.

TJ, more pics please... The face looks great. Which one did you use for your likeness?

Everyones looks good! I would like to see their human counterparts though ;D to see how they match up!
Meta, Chewie, Tijuana Jedi Phruby, they all look great!
Meta, I would do as the others suggested and do some drybrushing on your fig.
TJ, lets see a pic with the robe off(that DOES sound dirty!)
Phruby, I want to see a pic of you with all of the implants that your custom has (just kidding!!)
Oh, and if anyone does want to make any fat guy/bad haircut jokes, I would love to hear them!! I know that they would all be done in fun, not like how things get turned around and taken the wrong way in another forum ::)

TJ - Your custom is looking good so far, but we really need to see him without the robe!   :P

my "Self-customs" submission: Myself as a Retired mandalorian soldier-turned Journeyman protector.

 Backstory: Dav'sa Arman was once a mandalorian soldier serving under Jaster Mereel's personal unit-- Headhunter company; which specialized in reconnaissance and covert operations and were characterized by their darker armour colourations. While under Jaster's command, Dav'sa served as a commander and was with the mandalorians well past Jaster's death.

 He served under Jango until the unfortunate incident at Galidraan, where he, as did most of the mandalorians who didn't die, went his own way. Some went onto become bounty hunters, but Dav'sa had other things in mind.

 He went to Concord Dawn to a village and became Journeyman protector up until the clone wars, when a mysterious man in familiar armour named Spar comes to him with a proposition...

Sorry about the non-cropped pics. My dad did a disc cleanup and it removed our Photoshop.
