Some new customs at last!  Or, well, kitbashes, anyway.  Lately I've been throwing together some random Imperials (& others) for some upcoming photocomicking, and though these are really nothing special at all & have plenty of things wrong with them, I thought I'd share:



The middle three guys are built on the ROTS Governor Tarkin body; in fact, the one second from right is simply Tarkin with a hair repaint.  The guy on the far left is on a General Veers body and has a Spy Kids Donnagon head; I don't remember which body that is that the far right (Luke-headed) guy has, but the big black gloves were not originally part of it. 

I also decided to retool my ROTS Emperor (the really early one, in black) with some S-O-F-T G-O-O-D-S and a twist tie in the hem for that windblown look.  I can't take credit for the look myself, since I just followed a really cool set of instructions originally posted on I forget which forum by I forget whom.   If anyone knows, please let me know so I can give proper credit where it's due.



Now for something completely different... Just for kicks and thrills, and to use in the background of upcoming photocomics, I threw together the following Chick in a Really Obnoxious Green Dress.  Now, I do not frequently emply the term "chick" in referring to members of my own sex, but this time I think the word actually fits.  Yes, I know she has a cartoonish goofy grin.  Yes, I know the skin color of her face doesn't match that of her body.  It's all right, because at the present she's just eye candy.  :)



And a final, rather goofy group shot of sorts.  Everybody conga!



Not much, I know, and nothing at all special, but I hope y'all enjoy all the same!

I love the soft goods emporer. He looks so much better that way. The 'chick' reminds me of those Polly Pocket-like Leia and Padme figures that Disney is going to be releasing soon at the parks. Funny bunny hop line you got there on the Imperials. You just need to shave down that Luke neck.

It was great to finally meet you and your husband at C4.  :D

Why thank yew, Phruby!  Glad they're to your liking.  And I too am very happy that I finally got to meet you (and your boychik!) at the Con this past weekend.  :)

Yeah, that Luke neck... I only noticed that after all the photos were taken.  Usually it stays down all right, but I guess in the course of posing and turning the guys' heads it crept up a little.  Mea maxima culpa.

I was indeed going for the "Polly Pocket" look with the Chick in Green.  I figured, heck, I'd never use that WOW Action Girls head on any serious SW character with an actual name.  The interesting thing is, actual Polly Pocket figures are ALMOST to scale with SW figures (I have one dancing with a clone in one of my Clone Troopers' Ball pictures), and their furniture and some accessories are often quite compatible.

Thanks again! :)

Well, I fixed the Luke-headed fellow -- just shoved the head further down!  So here's how he looks now.

 

Perhaps it's still a little long -- but heck, he's just eye candy for the background, so it's no biggie.  Hope you enjoy all the same!

On a completely different note... I have just finished posting on my website some of the customs that I sent in to the Ultimate Group Project (UGP) and which appeared in the UGP diorama at Celebration IV.

Here, first of all, are some general group photos of the gals I sent in.

And the little Gand Findswoman in gold gets her own page.

Do enjoy, all!

Great pictures. I don't think I've ever seen your Mark I and II versions of her. Very cool to see. Thanks for putting up the UGP pictures in your site. Mark III looks great selling her wears.

Why thanks so much!  But we couldn't have asked for a better market stall for her to run -- that stall of yours was truly one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the diorama!  Loved all the pretty baubles 'n' beads!

It's mostly a Bespin Escape Leia, since that one's nice and small, but I replaced Leia's legs (which are perennially fixed in a sort of running position) with the legs from Vintage "4-LOM."  I also replaced Leia's 5-fingered Human hands with the three-fingered ones from Djas Puhr.

Thanks again!  :)

Yes, I know Hasbro says they're eventually going to make one to round oout the bounty hunters, but what can I say?  I was impatient.  :D

I made this after Beedo suggested that the VTSC Pilot Luke would be a good base, and that is indeed what I used, though I accidentally ruined one of the Luke arms & had to replace them with VTSC Greedo ones instead. 

Enjoy!  Comments always welcome!  8)

Why thank you, Anton!  I'm pretty proud of him, if I do say so myself.  I'm looking forward to seeing what Hasbro eventually comes up with.
