Star Wars Action Figures / Re: MetalJedi's Customs Updated 10/25!
« on: October 26, 2005, 04:03 PM »
looks good metal the only thing besides a little battle damage, might i suggest simply repainting his boots and the inner robes that show through around the neck and chest chest so it doesn't look too much like kit fisto and him shop at the same jedi store.  you know how weird it would be to show up at one of those jedi temple shin digs wearing the same outfit as somebody else.  "how embarrassing" as Yoda might say.

thanks for all your help you guys it's much appreciated.  i'll let you everybody know how i did on the fodder heads.  and if it works like i hope it will i'll try it out on the actual heads i want to swap with. and yes phruby FFURG definately needs and update, it seems like most of there stuff is POTF2 as far as recipes/references/and how to's go anyway.

jeff good idea on the trading out the elastic for a gun belt if ever get my hands on the new wook i think i'll try that.  i've cut the braids off one of my previews and if done right it looks pretty good, in my opinion.  chewie good looking imp officer, i definately hope hasbro rehashes him hopefully with different paint apps.  and glassman i think chewie might actually have like a sweatshop of jawas doing customs for him too because man i swear there's like a new one everyday.  i think you don't give yourself enough credit though chewie saying they're not complex.  any body can boil & pop a figure slap some paint on it and call it a custom, but you you can take something as simple as that imp off must have been for you to do and make it 10x better then what i could do and apparently what hasbro is willing to do.

well i kind of got the idea like i said i'm sure i just have to cut off the neck and dripp into the head a bit with the right sized bit but i don't want to melt a head by drilling it to fast, or anything like that.  i don't have that much in the way of fodder i usually only buy what i know i'll use/need and don't have much extras much less have say a spare eu luke head just laying around in case i give him his brain a sun roof.  so thanx for any tips.

i say make a pg version and r version i'd love to see how truly gross she is.  maybe as i don't know like a joke pic or blooper whatever you want to call it,  cut off a finger to a figure and have it like it got stuck between her teeth.  there seems to be an offly big gap there.  just a thought.

hows it done?  i checks ffurg and wasn't able to find anything and wasn't able to find anything here.  i think i have the basic idea, and i'll be trying on some fodder first to test, but before i ruin a still possibly useful head i wanted some advise before i start.  i have a dremel & a drill with bits.  here's my plans so far: replace the evil grim evo darth maul head with the saga training darth maul, use eu luke head to make a jedi luke using evo ani body, using jedi council mace head and putting it on a repainted pilot obi, and finally using a rots palpy and putting it on evo darth sidious, just can't get over the super evil grin.  so any help/suggestions greatly appreciated.

hey joke really great customs.  they'd make a good addition to anyones collection.  suggestion on the cape if you have any saga royal guards laying around if you cut them in the right spot they'd make pretty good cape they're pretty thin not too bulky looking, but once again no hood, another suggestion not sure how this would look but maybe some super glue and some sculpey add the plastic hood from that ultra/deluxe pegwarming obi/sb driod and it might turn out okay.

chewie can you post a pic of the witch i know it was somewhere in one of your threads.  i was looking at the poster you made in your customs thread and it looks really killer-pun intended-and if i'm not mistaken it's a fisto body correct?  now as you may know from other comments i've made about her it was love at first sight, she is just a super freak super freaky.  so i hope you go into her backstory somewhere down the line, like why exactly does she have jedi robes did she kill one and stole the clothes, and is it actually a she? anyway super great job like i said customs are a given that they'll be awesome coming from you and your effects and story telling get better and better every time.

palpy looks positively e-vil.  i'd give him the deluxe palpy/or #35 palpy hands for this particular shot though with the force lightning.  i've been meaning to do something like this but i was going to put some Agen robe sleeves on him, also the robes from that sucky Saga Emperor seem so much better than the ROTS robes like they're dragging on the ground or something, anyway my 3 cents looks good and the force lightning awesome effect.

okay chewie here's my 2 cents:  i love all the background stuff, i always try to notice that stuff because to my they give the photo's that much more of a feeling of reality.  for instance the pic of rykrof at the terminal with the laptop thing on the crate, or the pic of rykrof and gang walking through the base the gonk droid laying on his side like he was abandon there in a rush, and all the crate stacked all over the place, where do you get those by the way?  the story was very good definatley makes me look forward too the next chapter.  i not really big on the dooku head throws it off to me.  what's with us guys with the need to poke at the fire with a stick anyway is it like bred into us or something, another good touch gives it more realism instead of them all just sitting there.  in the pic of TK-42 and rykrof talking what is that small crane looking thing you have there in back of them?  is that a driodeka blaster at the end?  recipe?  good touch with the blood on the nightsisters mouth.  painted or effect?  either way she gets more and more scarier.  once again great addition to the story

there's a lot good ideas here, lot's of possibilties, which makes me think it won't happen.  hasbro seems dead set against them.  if it hadn't been for how awesome most of ROTS had been these new battle of wave might get me really excited.  these might have been nice pre ROTS but considering the pictures we've seen of what's coming up it would take something great like continuing the evo line or VOTC line to keep me in collecting this stuff.  i mean come on the ROTS prisoner Palpatine had articulated knees and he can't even sit unless you wiggle him out of his robe.  hasbro better have something good in the works because this repaint/limited articulation cr@p isn't flying with me.

The Legacy Collection / Re: Future Evolutions
« on: October 20, 2005, 03:20 PM »
disco your evolutions ideas have a single flaw in my opinion:  that would be the fact that i'd have to buy all of them, some multiples, and that would require me spending more money i don't have other than that it sounds really great.  which as you know is one of hasblows basic principles to come up with a great idea like the evo sets and only limit to 4 sets and making them hard to find.

now what would be cool if the carb block had some sort of light in it to turn the melting effect on or off, or if it was a two sided block one side the way we see it and the other a melted carb block like the i believe came with the Jabba Palace Dio.  oh what the heck am i thinking that would actually require hasbro to go out of their way for something, silly me.  another thing though why is only his upper half red.  last time i watched the movie it looked like his whole body was melting at once not in stages.

a more indepth critique later, but i just finished reading it.  AWESOME.  love the shot of Ventress over her kill, the quick flashback of Maul was a good touch, and the campfire was strickingly realistic looking.  very very impressive stuff.  more later.

damn it Phruby thats the second custom you've beaten me to, i just finished my Carnor Jax and i was going to start on doing one of these to go with my sqaud of clones.  he looks really good though hopefully mine will live up to looking so good.  do you have problems with the paint chipping on those shoulder joints?
