Glassman clones! I like it! It's been a long time since you've posted a star wars figure Greg. Does this mean your finding the time get back into it? Hope.Hope.Hope. ;)

Very nice work Glassman!  Its been a while since I saw any customs from you for sure.  I think you should make a Holo Glassman too.  Heck, Hasbro might want to offer it up as an Exclusive.

Thanks Brisk and Metal, yes its been a while.

Paul, i am getting back in the saddle. You'll see.

Brent, Hasbro is the reason i've stopped customizing. They are making eu characters now. They have made sooooo many figures that i have made over the years that i lost interest casue sooner or later i'll get the figure i want in plastic.
Some the figures we've done in the Group projects have been made. Rabe, Clone training, Biggs academy, some others alot of us have done... Malak, Infinities leia, and now Female imperials. SO i'll just wait for hasbo.

Here is a better shot of how the mask works. The black strap is packaging rubber band courtesy of hasbo.

Thanks DA, I am thinking of taking commissions for this, I just want to get a few more done so i get better at it.

Here is the other custom i did last year. Another customizer asked me to add to his Mandalorian Collection. He wanted something from my imagination. I thought it would be cool to give him a figure made of his likeness. So i asked him to send me a few pics of himself and here is the result. He patiently waited a verrrry Looong time for this.

Tag Brenmont aka "Hellraiser"




I was asked years ago about making removable Fett armor, but never got around to it. So when i was choosing
a base figure i wanted to be able to incorporate that feature as well.




I also had the idea a long time ago when i made those spirits, to make a helmet with a see thru visor.





He was made from an imperial gunner with details sculpted on as well as the custom head sculpt.




I aslo made a custom card for him, which some of you may know is my favorite part of customizing.




Here is a close up of the likeness. Before i added the sketch filter to the image i created the hair was brown in the reference image.



Let me know what you think.

Greg used clear plastic to make the helmet. In the first picture you can see the face thru the visor.

This is a wonderful piece. That face sculpt is dead on. I can't believe how close you got it to the picture. You've got some cool details on this guy like the see thru visor and the detachable armor. I want one made of me! :D

Wow, that is sweet.  It really is a dead-on likeness.

As always, I love the creativity you put into each of your customs and your cards are spot on!

Patreek, the clear helmet is just another detail. I thought it would be cool to see thru the visor of the helmet.
No other function.

Phruby, you got it. e-mail or PM me and we'll discuss details. Thanks for the comments.

BrentS, long time huh? Thanks for the kind words man.
Darknsour, PM me if you are serious and we'll talk numbers. I would just be making the scuplt and supplying casts to fit one the figure of your choice.

Thanks for looking. I'll keep this tread more active for 2008. Promise.

Thanks DA,


Well guys, like i mentioned, casting repros was the extent of my customizing for the most part of last year here are the results.

Mostly droids with a couple others. Thanks to Phruby for letting me borrow 3 of these guys.



And lastly, i finally got my hands on a cast of Bantha5's Gargan.  I checked with him to make sure he was ok with me casting it, so here is my result.


Every custom i've seen is painted different.
I chose these colors to make mine unique and cause it was what stood out to me in the reference pics. Its hard not to paint every detail, casue ryan put  so much detail in her, So i had to dumb down the paint job to a few select colors like kenner would have. I think it turned out ok.

What a great class picture. Soon Mon Julpa will be joining the ranks. Does anyone have an extra Jessica Meade or Mungo Baobab that Greg could cast? That would just about finish out the Droids wave 2 line.
