Smarty I've got to be honest, I'm not really liking this last custom you put up.

The extra chest armor looks like a misshapen blob of silver putty on his chest and doesn't really look too much like a practical armor piece, it really isn't giving him much extra protection, it is rather small and is only in the center of his chest, leave too many gaps that a blast would get through. The ankle holster is in a fine spot but the straps are way to thick and are also rather blobish. Maybe you could rework them with a different, thinner material. I don't like the additions to the knee armor either, it really doesn't serve much of a purpose and it just makes them look thicker, and the knee isn't a place where thick armor is practical. The right armor could use some detailing, if it is supposed to be a "power fist" then there needs to be some type of plating and wires around it. Right now it also looks more like a blob with three spikes on the end.

The additions to the shoulders are ok but they seem like they would get in the way a full movement. I don't like the idea of a sword either. That's what the big fist is for. The butt plate is also a bit over the top, he already has armor there, any ore is overkill and it makes no sense to put it there, because he can't sit, and that isn't a place the requires much armor since there aren't any vital organs in the ass.

I really, really don't like the Obi wan head though. This is supposed to be a clone, use a clone head or something at least close, like a Jango or a Typho. I just really anything other than a hero head. Even if it is painted it will still look like an Obi-Wan head. The helmet doesn't do it for me either. It looks like to many random pieces thrown together so they cover the head. The piece over the mouth looks kind of goofy and the visor looks out of place.

I'm not really digging the puke green color either, or that single black strip on the leg for that matter. It just seems out of place, asymmetry is fine but there needs to be more black elsewhere on the armor.

I think the one positive thing is the kama, you did do a good job with the soft goods.

ok, Ryan yeah I'm gonna rework his stuff, but just so you know they are not clones you'll understand after my PN's start, if I can get an Anakin evo to create my main character jedi.

About the color it's the exact same color as bly and his troops, I matched the color from the evo clone the body is made from perfectly. also its not my design take it up with Jub jub jedi.
I do have some copper wire my friend gave me so maybe I'll use that to improve the fist.

Thanks for the comments Ryan

I like how the galting gun clone turned out, he definitely has that clone-wars vibe to him. 
The Melee Clone reminds me of WH40K Space Marine (assault squad) or a Space Marine terminator.  I like the power-glove. The only thing that doesn't really work for me is the chest armor.  I think that using an AT-RT Driver's removable chest armor that was modified would look cool, the circular armor piece isn't working for me.
Still, great concept and I definitely dig that power-glove!
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.

Thanks GRego, I reworked it a bit and made some improvements, I'll get some pics up as soon as my parents are out of the house. If you have any Idea on a arm I could replace the power fist with lemme know.

Smarty -

COOL! Perhaps a little less soft goods, but I love this concept. The Grievous head as modified looks really, really good.

thanks for your comments.

 I tried to keep his Stih Garbs (thats a funny word lol) Close to the traditional Kaleesh clothing which is similar to the tuskens, wraped cloth all over.

What would you suggest dude. I'm open to suggestions.

And to clear stuff up for any posters that havn't seen this yet.
No one knows what a Kaleesh looks like underneath thier Mumuu mask.
So I didn't take the liberty to design a head and, I kept the mask and turned it into a full helm that this sith lord wears.

I thought I posted a comment on this guy but if I did I can't find it...... if I did, then I'll just repeat myself.  Anyway, I really like the way he turned out.   I think the soft goods look excellent!  Soft goods can be very hard to add to a figure and this is very effective.  My only (minor) criticism would be to try and clean up the lines along the face.  As we all know, its tough to paint straight lines  ;D
