Master Phruby's Customs Thread
« on: August 26, 2004, 10:18 PM »
Greetings Programs!

I just signed up at the JediDefender site and I like wait I see. There are alot of familure names around here.

I think I'll start off my stay at this message board with my latest custom. It's a carded version of my son Fred in his Padawan Jedi outfit.  Enjoy!

Nice work Paul, and may I say thank you for A) Stopping over, and B) taking up some of those F'n Padawan figures hanging on the pegs at every WM store from coast to coast! :)

Seriously though, that's some good work.  I bet your son appreciates that.

I myself have pondered doiong some Youngling customs but finding smaller heads is a rarity.  :(

What's the pieces you used?  All new sculpt on the head?

Oh, feel free to hop over and intro yourself in the section down towards Watto's Junkyard.  I think it's a couple sections below it (tell I don't go often).

And again welcome aboard.  You're a good name to see hopping on!

Thanks Jesse. I'll poke around here tomorrow at work.  ;)

The head is just ep1 anakin. It looks closest to Fred and I didn't really have time to make a ready good head for it. I'm working on Kermit Skyhopper for UGP#5 right now.

Hey Paul!  Welcome to JD!  Another face here, I'm sure you'd recognize from my occasional appearances in the RS SoCal thread.  Anyway, glad you took Jess up on his offer to stop on by.  You'll have to swing by the SoCal thread here from time to time, and let us know what's shakin' down in the OC!

That's a kick ass custom of your son there.  Definitely cool.  VOTC, no less!  Makes me inclined to want to beg for you to make a custom of me too.   ;)

Keep up the great customs.  Looking forward to seeing more of them here.  Enjoy JD, and feel free to give any of the staff a holler if you've got any questions, comments, or suggestions about the place.  We're here to serve!

Catch ya' around the boards...

- Matt

Nice custom, and welcome to JediDefender.  ;)

I wish I could do an VOTC carded custom of myself but I haven't seen any Porkins on the pegs in a while.  :-\

Hey, that's real cool Phruby!  Lucky kid you've got there.  I'm sure plenty of kids (and a few grown ups) would be stoked to be their own action figure.   8)

Is it just the lighting in the picture there, or is the OTC logo at the bottom left a little different?  I can't really see anything at the top of it, where the "Star" word would be.  I think it's probably just the lighting though.

Did you shave/"spike"/modify the Anakin's hair at all, to match your son's crew cut?  Hard to tell.  Regardless, nice custom job and cute kid there!

Oh yeah, welcome to JD too!   ;)

The box and logo are from a votc han solo. So its the real clam shell. I didn't do anything to the anakin head. It kind of looks like him and I'd probably mess up the head anyway.

I'm currently on the lookout for a head that looks like me. I've got an extra jedi luke that is going to loose his head once I find one.

Paul, shoot me your image over sometime (you can send to my JD.com address if you want.  Should be on my profile on the front page).

Not to toot my own horn but I think I probably have the largest generic 3.75" action figure noggin' collection on the net.  I can at least aim you the right way(s) perhaps.

Just lemme know!

Master Phruby's Custom Creations thread
« Reply #10 on: August 28, 2004, 11:53 AM »
One thing I like to do is go back over previous work and try to improve it. One such example was my Admiral Daala.

My first attempt was using ewok Leia's head and torso with Adi Gallia's arms and legs. I went a little overboard on the chest.



For my second attempt, I used an imperial officer for the body and Zam Wessel for the head. I had to sculpt on long red hair and chest.



It's definately an improvement I think. Anyway, I'd love to see how others have improved their previous work.  Please post pictures of all of your attempts, what you changed and what you've learned.

I guess no one cares to add their updated versions to the thread.  :'(

well, we have a very small customizing audience here, unfortunately. something jesse and i have been trying to build up. but feel free to continue posting your makeovers.

as for your admiral daala, i would have to agree that the re-make is better. the re-sculpted hair and chest details are vastly improved. how long a time period was it from the first attempt to the makeover?

That's a couple of years difference. I just had to wait for better parts. I plan a new Admiral Daala by the end of the year.

Just in case there is someone here who won't step foot in RS customizing board I would like to show my Kermit Skyhopper crossover figure.
