Chewie, Jedistyle, many thanks as well for the nice comments on this Jedi Master. I'd like to think he was on the Council some 200 years before the events in RotS.

The parts used for this figure were:
- Entire body + head: Valorum (tuff of Valorum's hair cut off)
- Arms: a Qui-Gonn figure. Not sure which one, but any human Jedi arms would work I guess.
- Lightsaber: Qui-Gonn saber, hilt modified a bit to remove it's Qui-Gonn look
- Belt pocket: from AotC Obi-Wan Pilot (that insanely crappy figure)
- Belt: from those plastic rings that hold six-packs together
- Hair: sewing thread

I just made tutorial pics on how to make the removable blade. When I wanted to make pics of how to make the D-ring, the batteries of my camera went dead. And so did the back-up batteries  :P.

Anyway, here's how I made a Qui-Gonn Ep1 blade into a lightsaber with removable blade:

Take your 'fixed-blade' of choice:

Cut the blade off precisely at the emitter. Using a pick or a push pin, make holes in the blade and the hilt, in a manner that the holes are at the same position on both parts. Do this very carefully, by gently but firmly twisting the pick/pin in the parts. Only has to be 3 or 4 mm.:

Take a paperclip and superglue one end in the blade:

Cut off the paperclip so that the 'peg' in the blade is too long. Place the blade in the hole in the hilt and mark where the peg enters the hilt. This way you know how deep the hole in the hilt is and how long the peg has to be. I just held my thumbnail on the spot and eyeballed the length:

Place the blade in the hilt and check if it doesn't fall out easily. If so, drop a little superglue on the peg, put it in the hilt and very slowly turn the blade until the glue starts to settle. Familiar to tightening joints, not unknown to you, I'm sure:

I read the How-to on FFURG, but there were no pics, but it's that method I used. FFURG also has a How-to on making D-rings, but I approached that a bit differently. When my batteries are done reloading, I'll make pics of that as well, ok?

Bellbottoms.... groovy, man. Just as the rest of your Roron version. You really captured the cartoon look from Clone Wars. And his eyes are very beautiful  :o.

I commented more detailed at GalacticArchives, which in a nutshell is: awesome gunship!!!

Thank you as well, Fritzkrieg. I'm very pleased with the hair as well. This guy was therefore a good testcase for another figure I have in mind.

Thanks, Brent! And nope, nothing wrong with the picture. He's blind. I remembered a line from a Faithless song: "you don't need eyes to see, you need vision". Quite fitting for a Jedi Master.

The hair is plain ol' sewing thread, only a lot of strands next to each other. I put on a bit of all-purpose glue on the head and placed 10 - 12 strands on it. My g/f helped me make the braid, she has a handy way to make one. After the glue dried, I painted black over it, to cover up the glue and parts that were er.... bald.

I made this Jedi Master. Nobody you know, just someone I made up. All I have to do is think of a name I guess. Let me know what you think  :)

Did someone mention 'boobies'?  :P

Nice to see something different. I can't see why you wanna ride that animal, either. Looks like something the Vong dragged in the GFFA.... Hmmmm I smell a plot.... or that beetle!

Excellent customs, with very original choice of colour for the suits of those alien characters.

30 - 50 you say?  :o! Let's see 'em!  :)

I've searched high and low this evening for a link I accidentally stumbled upon a couple of months ago. It had a lot of pictures/movie stills from Rebel Pilots. I thought it was, but apparently that's not it. Sithspawn! If it's one thing I can't stand it's not finding a link  >:(

This is gonna be a great diorama! I don't know anything useful about dioramas but this looks extremely good. Keep it up!

Don't mention it D_E, glad to be of assistance  :)

Well, I did a Google and Altavista image search, but that only showed other people's customs. Don't know if they're helpful, though.

Perhaps someone could scan some images for you from the comics Corran is featured in?

I like the fact that this Jedi doesn't wear the typical Jedi wardrobe. Quite original. The skin tone of the Kel'Dor is also different from the standard tone. Good idea. But er.... you might want to swap the human hands for the Kel'Dor ones  :)

Hey DF, glad you took my and other's advice to join JD. Your customs are very worthy of being seen by humans, aliens and everything in between  ;D
