The Sumos name was E.Honda, and he was from the Street Fighter subline. You can go ti Yojoe.com and look him up If you would like to see him. But I warn you from my Joe collecting days he was pretty hard to find, and goes for a good bit loose.

Well that guy looks like he would about three times what Greg weighs!  If you use that head, you might need to trim it down some.   ;)

Of course don't use the body.  Just the head.  :-[

;D gotcha  ;)
I did a quick eBay search and it seems that it'll run me between $5 to $10 depending on shipping, so I'll probably see how the Jurassic Park guy head works (from the Raptor set that's currently at KB), that E. Honda head would probably be better though...
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.

this is a photo of my husband joe and i:




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.

And for Gregorbian, I think the E. Honda, while a mite big, is pretty close otherwise. Just gotta lose the top knot.

Are these customs supposed to be us as a Star Wars character, or us in every day life?

 As long as it resembles you in some way, you can be a bounty hunting, sith killing, Carbine slinging madman or an accountant with a jolly pinstripe suit. It really doesn't matter so long as it resembles you.

The best would probably be a figure of you in a costume and a picture of you wearing the same thing.

Im making mine as a Jedi (of course) but I don't have any pictures of me as one so you'll just have to use your imagination.  ;D
I remember my dream now.

Here's a pic of me...I take very few "normal" pictures. Get me in front of a camera and I ham it up. Behold my Ginormous head:


And just for fun, here's one of me and Jeremy Bulloch a few of you have seen before.


I'm thinking of going with a GI Joe VvV Barrel Roll head for the spiky hair and sculpting on the beard. I may add the sunglasses I have from the Leatherneck figures I have, since I am rarely in the sun without 'em.   ;D

BTW, I can't see Chewie's pic.  :-\

He must be a great looking guy then.   ;)

Funny though, I almost went into teaching because I kind of would like to be a history professor.

I'm going to ignore that, Glassman.  >:(

Nah, just kidding. I might have taken offense to that if I didn't have a picture somewhere of me and Bill Hootkins, and I swear it looks like he could be my dad.  :P

I considered that but the hair's not right, and I think that would be harder to sculpt than the beard.
