I can see the pics just fine right now.  Hope you can see them soon Greg because these are awesome. 

Mace Windu - My version is pretty similar, but yours looks better to me SLC.  I love how the Agen Kolar body seems to be such a great fit for Windu.  And the head selection is good, it gives him a neutral expression.  Well done - you get an A+ on this one, along with some extra credit.

Obi Wan - You nailed it on the head on this one too.  Great job cutting out the armor from the robes, it looks so natural.  And excellent weathering too!

Nice seeing an update from you too!  You made my day.   :)

OK, I can see them now  ;D
Great Mace Windu!  I should really try that out.  At first, I didn't really mind the gorilla-armed ROTS Mace (especially after I put a SG cloak on him), but after putting him next to a ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan, man, he looked like crap.  Now I need to find Agen Kolar (he was pegwarming forever, but now that I need him, I bet you he's not on the pegs anymore  ::))

If you didn't say that you had sculpted Mace's shirt, I would never have known.  Great job on that!  it looks perfect!

I like your Obi-Wan as well, my only complaint is with the cloak.  Hasbro made it too bulky, It think a softgoods cloak would look more in scale.  Still, the drybrushing you did on the cloak makes it look a million times better than hasbro's version.  8)

Thanks a lot guys!!

I made sure to buy a few extra Agen Kolar's Pilot Obi-an is pegwarming near me so I have a good source of Jedi Fodder for now. I have never worked with Soft goods so I went with this cape. I think if I glued it down to the shoulders it would look less bulky, but I'd have to trip some off the bottom and my x-acto was getting dull and have trouble cutting the rubbery cape towards the end. I'll probably keep it as is, but thanks for the suggestion.

 

Just for kicks here's a comparison shot of Agen Kolar's Robes, it is basically the same I just flipped it around.

CHEWIE, I'm really glad that you like them.  :)

I commented on this somewhere else, but I'll say it again.

I LOVE the droid.  It's fantastic.  The Sith and Jedi are great, too.

I like the Mace, but I don't love it.  The shoulders look just a tad goofy, but that's probably just the source material.

Anyway, great work all around!

The Agen Kolar is the Hasbro version... ;) I just put it up for comparrison to the chest on my Mace.

Thanks Lance, I do tend to agree on the Mace. I think he looks fine with the Obi-Wan Red leader cloak on, it makes the cloak look more scale but the shoulders are a bit goofy, If I had started this later, when Red leader Obi-Wan was out, I'd have used that body.

And Jeff thankl for grouping these together. :)

Any new stargate customs? I'm not much of a fanatic about stargate as I am star wars, but I do watch the occasional episode. My freind Lane guest starred in an episode a while ago. He played a Harcecis named "Shifu". It was pretty cool seeing him on screen.

None yet but I have made some progress of my Teal'c headsculpt and I've got a WIP grenade damage guy. I still have yet to finish any yet. :-X Stupid ADD.

I am without a camera for awhile so please forgive the crappy scans. But After seeing Talon, CHEWIE, and Dave's recent CW Obi-Wans I decided to get on the bandwagon.  :)





Now I just have to try and update more than once a month. :-[

Look who finally got off his ass and updated!   ;D

Just joking buddy. It's nice to see you update again, I always enjoy your customs.

Looks good, you're a lot braver than I am in painting the black parts brown.  Was the belt hard to get on?  I didn't have the guts to try that either...

Thanks Justin. :)

Well the belt is actually sculpted, so I guess it wasn't too easy with my sub-par sculpting skills. The robe is Agen Kolar's, very heavily modified of course. The neck chain is a piece of the zip-line from the Clone Commander, then I added a bit of a drybrush to it.

It looks really good and really battle hardened.  Maybe I need to add some detail to the cloak I gave mine.
