I really like that Phruby... your painting skills have really improved lately.  Beautiful work.

 Ever thought of making a modern look to him, rather than vintage?

Looking good man.  Is that from one of those bootleg kits on eBay?
The paint job is pretty crisp, it really looks factory.  :D
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 guys. That is a bootleg kit from ebay. It had only a couple of small bubbles on it. Nice casting. I thought about making a modern version. I was thinking a Rancor Keeper for the body. Maybe get Glassman to make me a modern head.  Hmmm. ;D

Great job on the new figures!

The AT RT driver is great, especially considering how hard it is to make white paint look good.

I know most people seem to be into "weathered" figures, but I prefer 'em clean.  I wish the real guy looked like this instead of the camo version.

Greg, maybe we can work out a deal so you can cast this guy. He comes apart very easily. He's a very simple design. In fact the body seems to be a modifed version of Sise Fromm from the same line.  I even have an extra unpainted head you can cast. I would just have to repaint it after your done.

If he comes apart easily, i woulndt have to boil him, therefore I woulndt mess up the paint. If the paint job is as smooth as it looks i would just make the mold as is.
Definatley...lets work something out. PM me.

Here is my version of Commander Neo. Thanks to Bantha5 for the kit. I finally got around to making him.

Looks fantastic.  So it's a Bantha5 kit?  Looks like a good match.

I don't know if it's just me, but I think it coloring of the plastic material on the helmet isn't as clear white as the armor on the rest of him.  It could be just me though.  If it is and you want to change it, I think a little bit of weathering would offset it and make it look even more real.

Great work!

It's Bantha5's kit. The helmet color is more a function of the flash than the paint. In person, you couldn't tell the colors apart. It's a good idea to weather him a little.

Cody is almost done too.

Cool neyo, phurby... He definately needs some weathering.
Is there an insignia on his head??  He has one just off to the side of his forhead.

Thanks Greg. There is a insignia on his head. You just can't see it at this angle.

Looks great the helmet looks fantastic and the little straps add that extra touch well done.
