You need to host the picture at a place like photobucket. They press the little picture button above and put in the url to the picture. Email me the picture and I'll post it if you want.

I did a cartoon-ish custom figure of myself a while back using a vinyl figure and have decided to "update" it into a Star Wars character.

I'll post a picture of myself as well as the custom as it is right now later.

Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with~

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!   :-\

 :P

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.

 I was thining of sculpting on the other eye and making it something like a pair of glasses, but then again, I like the one eye thing- maybe it could be like a rangefinder type thing.

I've been thinking of doing a custom of myself for some time now.  However been havin a bit of trouble finding a figure tubby enough, I figure Jek Porkins wouldn't be too bad...he's a bit rounder than I am but he could work.  I've also thought about using the doc ock figure from marvel super heroe showdown as a base...but those figs are a bit on the pricey side.

The head is the worst part, I don't think they'd sell too many toys with a head like mine...hehehe...lol.

But anyways, I'm up to the challenge, I'll double my efforts to find the perfect tubby figure!!

Btw, are there any figs out there that are slightly balding?   Maybe my custom will just wear a helmet.

Segnett, if you want to post a picture (or PM me one) I'll see if I can help you out with finding a good base head to start with.

Here's a recent pic of me. I used a Kyle Katarn head for a past custom of myself but maybe someone can think of a better one.

I remember my dream now.

I really think that a General Madine head would better suit you. The face is more similar to madine aside from the haircut, but I'd strongly suggest using an OTC General Madine Head

How about an agent Faces head from the G.I.Joe line? Nadine is a good choice though, just dont use that really bad combover that he had. And as far as the Antilles head it looks similar, maybe with a few modifications i can probably make it better.

Yeah, well, as segnett will tell you, my figure is just going to be painful.

First off, my wife suggested I base my figure off of Preggers Padme, sheesh!

I think I'm gonna get the bail organa figure, lol.

Jurassic Park 3 Military General figure. Just paint on a beard, paint the hair, and wham, it's you.

Hmm I actually used that figure for my Kam Solusar custom. Since he's still a work in progress I may just go ahead and use that.
