Such a cool and original idea. The look on Luke's face really suits how green he was in the book. Very impressive.

Wow hemble that looks excellent. I like the tyed up sleves around the waist. That is a great touch. It looks fantastic. I may have to give this one a try. That is provided I can ever find one of those VOTC x-wing lukes.

Splinter of the Mind's Eye, and other such EU sources that seem to have lost "canonicity" with newer additions (new EU, prequels, etc.) have seemed to been forgotten by customizers. This is a great revival, and your paint apps, and not to mention sculpting, have really breathed life into this piece.

BTW I don't know how I missed Baron Fel. But OMG that is awesome. Just beautiful. I need to get off my but and make one. But I doubt it will turn out that nice. Excellent job.

Hi All

O'Neill is an older figure I did a while back I stored him away until I had room on my shelves to show him I did a little reworking on his vest and belt. I repainted his equipment and also repainted his face using Reaper miniature paints. The Vest was sprayed with dark yellow as I couldn't find a desert coloured vest.
 
RECIPE
1: Every thing on O'Neill is from the modern day Dragon figures which I got from here www.wartoys.com
 
2: The head I got from here The frontline custom heads he also has a great range of other 12" heads as well.

Hiya Ron - Jack looks great.  The paint on the head is (as expected) outstanding.  The figure is a great blend of cloth parts and plastic pieces.  Outstanding.

That is a great figure. The paint apps really look like him. Now when are you going to make a MacGyver version?

Hey Ron,

Sorry i missed this update. O'Neill is fantastic, as all your O'Neills have been so far. The face is dead on, not just the sculpt but the paint app as well. The only thing I might suggest is to paint up the arms the way you did the face. It is a little strange to see such detail on the face and then just a plain plastic looking tone on the arms. As always I'm looking forward to your next update!
