Chewie for your head, what about the Anakin head from the Jedi vs. Sith battlepack with new hair?  I think your jawline is similar.

This threads got me thinking I may join in... just trying to figure out what head would work...

Well that's not a bad idea using that head. tykrazen  He does look really young there in that figure!  I don't know if I want to spend the $25.00 for an extra set of this though... there are a couple BBI figure heads that I think might work.

Here's me with my daughter at Celebration 3 (Come to think of it, I think this was taken right after Esther's soft goods lesson).

Ty, it looks like it might be a little hard to make your hair... I'm pretty sure you are good at sculpting, so you may want to try that.

By the way, when does the "Customs of Us" project end?

I'm thinking I should use an Anakin head and change the hair, I used to be told I look kind of like Hayden, mainly around the eyes. but let me know what you guys think

Here I am taking a nap in my recliner with my dog :P



And here I am at the FFURG booth at C3, I'm on the far right.

Well, I can't see the bottom pic, but I think you're right that an Anakin head could work... maybe even the Crispy Anakin since you both have very short hair.   ;)

You could even add a dog custom, using TIMBER from the Gi Joe line.

So what do you guys think I should use for my self-custom? I was thinking a Captain typho and then use sculpty to cover the other eye to use as a pair of glasses.

Typho is a very good idea - I would probably think that woudl be best for you.

SLC, I still can't see that pic - sorry!   :-\

Yeah it keeps showing up then disappearing, I don't know what is happening.  ???

Perrenial, I think Typho would work, unless you want an eye patch you'd have to do some resculpting though.

Or even leave the patch as some sort of battle wound, depending on what character you are??

I don't know if you guys have seen this before but the very first casting call at FFURG was customs of us. It's funny seeing all of these figures and wondering where most of these people are now a days. They might give you some ideas for your own figure. Maybe Jason will add our pictures there too. ;)

I checked out the Elite solider at target today. There is one that looks just like Greg with sun glasses on.

I'm thinking of using gi joe Hard Drive for a head for mine. I think he will be somekind of Jedi slicer.
