I was messing around with my Kubricks today and created a simple alternate version of Jango from series 9. I simply popped/pried off the jetpack, slid off the helmet and then added the poncho from the TAC #57 Jango figure. I then simply enlarged the hole in the poncho and refit the jetpack, popped the helmet back on and presto - a AOTC cutscene Jango! Obviously, the jetpack is wrong but I'm fine with that. Pic to come....

here it is...

I really like the cloth custom Fett and Maul - I may have to try this myself!

I know that I am Sith has that obi- clone on his list to make.

Oh Yeah Baby!  Just took me a little longer to complete than I had anticipated.

I give you The Negotiator, General Kenobi...






I had a lot of fun with this one.  I think it's become my #1 favorite custom over Baron Fel.  Enjoy!

I don't think I've publically commented on this custom.  It is really well done.  As you know, General Kenobi is one of my favorites as well!!

That Obi-Wan in Clone armor is awsome. Nice job! ;D

If anyone is looking for a few clones or a couple other kubricks for customs, I have a few left for sale here

I'm trying to sell of the last few I have since no one wants to trade. They are fairly cheap.

Any of you guys know if this is one of Bike Ride Tony's customs?  The seller mentions an estate sale that they acquired this and other figures from, I was just wondering if anyone was familiar with his work enough to spot one of his figures.

It sure looks like one of his...  the card back looks right andf the "stand-up" part of the bubble is on top of Vader's head, just like Tony did with his:

Thanks Jeff, I was hoping it was one of Tony's figures.
