This is a pretty cool custom Smarty, looks like there's a bunch of different parts and greeblies and that's confirmed by your rather extensive parts list, lol.

Speaking of counting things at stores, my local Kb Toys had 12 pegs full of basic figs and not one had any good figs, i.e. Sandies, Codies, U Clones, Scorches, nothing.

Hey everyone, today, is just a preview of whats to come :P I have 2 head sculpts that I did while watching ROTJ, I'm surprised they turned out so fast. :o. Anyway. the first one is based off of this


Here is My sculpt.


Then we have a Givin, the creepy looking alien that we see in the cantina that looks like a Skull.


Last we have a WIP Nemoidian.


LMK what you all think :)

Smarty, I'm liking the sculpts.  Is that some sort of blue (purple?) sculpy?  I've only seen the boring plain stuff.

Those are pretty good. The Verpine Jedi is cool, and that blue rhino thing looks really detailed.

Thanks for hte compliments guys, these were fun to make, and so was the Verpine.

Brents, Sculpey comes in every color imaginable. I do alot of arts and crafts. My nativity sets made of sculpey figurines go for around 40$ at christmas time as well as a team of Reighndeer and A sleigh with santa go even higher sometimes, just casue ther are more figurines.
I also make Noahs Ark, and tons of other little things. I have things for all occasions, and they all sell at 15$ or higher in auctions. :D Thats why I have every color imaginable.

Well I also have another sculpt to share.

I made an Advozse, and for those who don't know whatthey are here is a pic


Well here is my sculpt


and a view from the side


LMK what you guys think. :D Has my sculpting gotten better?

Well, here I am.  :)

Your alien sculpts are very nice and accurate to the species. I wish I could sculpt.

I especially like the Rhino face and the one with the horn coming out of his head- they both look excellent.

I also really like the WIP Neimoidian, any hint on who he's gonna be?

the sculpting looks awesome on the Rhino alien, very detailed and looks like the reference pics you have there.

the skull cantina alien looks good too, the refinements you did on him look much better, more like what i remember him looking like in the movie.

the advozse looks very good, the proportions of the eyes and the horn look very well done.

i think your sculpting has come a long way already. its not easy to sculpt in 1/6th scale let alone the smaller stuff for the 3 3/4" guys. good job on all these. i look forward to seeing them completed!

I love the Neimoidian, SmartyPants, in fact I think this looks to be your best custom to date! The parts just seem to flow and just fit together so naturally. Now paint that sucker because the anticipation of seeing the finished product is killing me!

Smarty, I think your sculpting is very good.  I haven't been able to come up with nearly that much detail using sculpy.  I'd like to see some of your nativity stuff.  Sounds pretty cool.

Sure thing brent, the one My Mom owns was my first, and it sucks really bad, I'll get My grandma to send me a pic, or I can make another. I actually start in august I have to make so many. :o

Perennial: thanks for the props, the Nemoidian doesn't have a Paint scheme, any suggestions?

Ripley: thanks I couldn't beleive how well they turned out myself.

DN: I already talked to you on AIM

thanks again guys, I am molding them today, and hopefully get a few casts done tonight.

Echoed from what i said over at FFURG,
These sculpts are great.

What medium are you using?

Advozse, is definatly the best of the bunch. Symetrical and everything.

While the Gavin and "rhino-like" one are very good, the gavin could use a bit of re-working the eyes and the left jaw.
the "rhino-like one seemd to just need shortening (side ways)

Other than that, these are excellent sculpts. I cant wait to see these on a figure.
Keep up the great work.
