Nice paint job. That just goes to show you that a good paint job can make all the difference in the world.

I think the bodies you use for these are great. Makes me wonder why Hasbro does such a crappy job, then carps about how the 12' inch line does so poorly. I'd buy 12' figures in a heartbeat if they all looked as good as yours.

If I'm not mistaken, this question has been answered by Hasbro directly. They claim that since most of the people who buy the 12" line leave them in their boxes, they didn't feel the need to use a better body that would never be removed from the box. Also, it would raise the cost of the figures.

Damn!!  That is one sweet figure. 

One question, is it fairly easy to pop the head from one body to the other??

Hey Hemble,

Can we get the painting tutorial over here that you posted on RS?

Also, you should change the name of this thread to "Hemble's customs" and just do regular updates like Chewie and I. You certainly produce enough cool stuff to warrant your own regular thread!

Hi DD

Tutorial coming over asap I would'nt mind doing a regular thread but 80% of my customs are not Star Wars so I really don't know if the members would like to see WWII military or alot of other scifi figures?

HEMBLE'S CUSTOMS - updated 2 figures 05/15/2005
« Reply #55 on: May 12, 2005, 02:41 AM »
Hi All

Well I'll give it a go showing my customs figures which are all 12" figures so far,  as I make them I'll post around 4 pics of each figure and what items I used and what I did to each Item. And the rest of the pics will on my site at www.hemblecreations.com

To start off I'll put up good ole Indiana Jones recipe is as follows

1:head & fedora -  is from The frontline painted as per the tutorial the fedora is painted with browns and tans to get the desired colour.
2:Jacket, pants, shirt, boots and holster belt are all from Dragon weathered and painted using acrylics.
3:Bag, whip and holster are all custom made using materials from a art store and then agian weathered and painted.
4:the body is from dragon and the hands are from BBI.

Ron

   Wow...this is impressive! As a big Indiana Jones fan, this may well be my favorite you've done so far!

   Great to see you starting your own thread here, hemble!

Hemble, oh my Dear God.

I am usually not a fan of 12" stuff, but you have just changed that for me.  For me, it goes without saying that you are the BEST 12" customizer I've ever seen.  I started looking through your site, and my jaw almost hit the keyboard. 

There are some other good 12" customizer out there, but you go the extra mile.  I am stunned at how real your stuff looks.  I remember seeing that Dooku before, but I didn't know who did it.  I shall not forget again.

Keep the updates coming... I suggest you update with a new figure highlighted in this thread at least once a week.

 :P
