Wow - just went through the whole thread and there are some seriously nice customs in here! I gotta say though, Jman's General Kenobi takes the cake! Nice Work! :o

Thank you!  He's definitely one of my favorites and relatively easy (which is good since I'm not much of a customizer).

There was something wrong when I set up Jabba last night and I couldn't figure it out until I put in ROTJ this evening.  He was missing his sidekick and translator...



Also, as alluded to the other night, Luke with battle damaged hand from Jabba's Sail Barge...

Had a couple of ideas for custom kubs. Not sure if I'll actually go through with buying the decal paper/paints and probably ruining my Lukes in the process, so I thought I'd post my mock ups here for fun. Happy Thanksgiving!

Those are definitely great concepts!  Luke sure did get the **** beaten out of him in the final acts.

A good head to use is the Kane face hugger kub. If you remove the face hugger the head has a good pained expression on it.

Thanks guys! I'll probably start with the jedi Luke version-- i don't mind experimenting with him as there are no shortage of cheap extras floating around. My plan is to draw the face really clean in illustrator and then print it out on waterslide decal paper, then just turn the kub's head around backwards and transfer the decal to the blank side. For the lightning, I don't know if it would be easier to hand paint the bolts or make decals. I'd want it to look as clean as possible. Guess I'll just try it and see.

A good head to use is the Kane face hugger kub. If you remove the face hugger the head has a good pained expression on it.

Cool, thanks. I was looking at the chest burster Kane face as a reference. Is face hugger Kane's expression different? MAybe I could just use that and tweak it a bit. I wanted Luke's yell to be more on the whiny side, not too gritty.

Also noticed that the hair on Dagobah Luke would be perfect for these.

Finally got around to a couple of easy customs I wanted to make using extra figures.  Just a few simple head swaps for Han & Lando...





Had to take a new shot of my favorite custom as well fromt he Legacy comic series.  Just a Snake with Qui-Gon Saber and Hasbro Cade's blaster...

Nice work! For a minute I was wondering why Han was holding a lightsaber...forgot about his Taun Taun maneuver, haha.

Nice background too.   ;)

That background is slick.  Can't believe I waited so long to open it...
