Wow, crazy!  The resemblance is perfect  :o
Did you sculpt that hair?
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.

Wow, all this wonderful stuff that I've missed over the school year... Ripley, Glassman, and Ennis, these are some absolutely fantastic "self-portrait" (or, in Ripley's case, "spouse-portrait") customs.  It's fun seeing 12"-scale self-portraits, which are definitely a rarity.  Very inspiring!  I need to do an updated one of myself, since my hair's shorter now...

Darth Ripley, I've commented on your chest-burster self elsewhere -- it turned out great.  Reading your post of Sept. 30 below -- so that's where that spattered blood came from!  Just kidding.  :D  Very fine work.

Darth Ennis, you are absolutely right about the eerie facial resemblance. Both are very handsome devils indeed.  :)   The face is really spot on; the hair less so, but that's no biggie.  What head is that?

Glassman, your 12" Jedi self also has a great resemblance to you, from what I remember of photos you've posted.  Hooray for custom sculpting!  And the outfit is just superb -- sewn by you, I take it?

Great work all.  I know the Group Project or whatever is now officially over, but can we keep this thread around as a place to post our self-customs and such just the same?  Phruby, what sayest thou?

Thanks for the kind words Finds. I didnt sew anything. Those are all Hasbro clothes. I just airbrushed em for a differnt color/look.

As Phruby has said in the past, customs can be added anytime...We set a date so we can have an offical release to shoot for, but late entries are always welcome.

I'm all for it. Maybe we should rename the thread to just "Customs of Us". Anybody is free to post their picture and custom of them here.

Thanks everyone, I was on a time limit at the time so I couldnt jot down the recipe. The head is from the ROTS antilles with Quigon hair and some liberal amounts of sculpy. The body is Pilot OBI-wan and the boots are ROTS Ki-Adi-Mundi. I havent made it over to FFURG yet to post any pics but hopefully Ill be able to soon.

I remember suggesting for you to use that Antilles head, but damn - I didn't realize the resemblance was that good!  This really does look like you, excellent work!

 :P

You mean the Ep. III Raymus Antilles head?  Yes, that would have been a great match for Ennis, too.  I've been seeing a number of those at my Target, and if I ever decide to do a Darth Ennis custom... :D

I even like the fact that your figure has the same smirk on its face as you do in the picture.

The likeness is uncanny. The different use of parts is flawless.
I remember my dream now.
