Thanks Phruby  ;D I hope I can get around making the sides of that helmet. Will give it my best, of course!

As you'll probably know hosts an annual Secret Santa Custom round. Quite a few of us took part and made some great custom gifts for each other.

This is what I made for fellow customizer MrHoppers, a battle damaged Spider Droid and as a bonus a female Jedi Knight. The latter is a custom I made a few years ago, I must admit. I wanted to make a new Jedi, but you wouldn't believe the insane paint rub issues I experienced with that one. Because of the deadline, I opted to add an older quality custom, instead of a new one with a soddy paint job.

The Spider Droid is the Saga Deluxe one (I think), with the walking mechanism ripped out, damage effects using my Dremel and soldering iron and a bit of tubing on the under side. Repainted the entire thing in shades of green and added the obligatory weathering and battle marks.

Despite the pressure of the deadline (shipped Dec.17th., arrived Jan.3rd.) I had great fun making this one. I even thought of adding decals, inspired by that walker seen in Sucker Punch. But like I said, time wouldn't let me.

The Jedi is made from a 25th. Scarlett body, ROTS Shaak Ti skirt and VvV Bombstrike head. Fully repainted of course.

Anwyay, enough talk, here's the pics:

Additional pics can be seen on my FB Page


X-Mas Bump! ;D

Started on Afro Samurai himself as well. Made a cast of a TCW Mace Windu head and began defining Afro's er... afro  ;D


Here's an overview of some SW projects, including a Sithstalker head for a fellow customizer:

Went to see Seasick Steve last Friday. Damn, probably the best concert I've seen this year! Support act was a Dutch blues singer by the name of Qeaux Qeaux Joans. Not too shabby either.

Took a couple of pics, which can be seen here:..... or not :s Seems like flickr's down for maintance of sumtin'....

Thanks Phruby! Yeah, typical for me to add even more new projects to my ever growing collection of WIPs :D

I took a little detour and started messing around with the art of molding and casting. After one or two failed attempts I got the hang of it and produced five pretty darn good looking casts:

The first is a cast of a Snowbunny Padmť head, which I'll use to make a female AT-AT Driver.

The second and third are a modified Ki-Adi Mundi head and the neck post. I'll need five of these, to make the Brothers from Afro Samurai. I sculpted the thick eyebrows and ears and smoothed out the back of Ki-Adi's head. After that I made a cast of it.

The fourth is a Starkiller head, which I will resculpt into the Sithstalker head, with the helmet like add-on. I'll fix the little air pockets on his mouth piece as well. This is the only cast with air bubbles, by the way.

The last is a modified TCW Mace Windu head, which will become the head of Afro Samurai. I sculpted some big ass 'burns, but when I accidentally dropped it on my workbench, both sideburns snapped off! I superglued them back in place and decided to first cast that stage, before working on his huge 'fro :D

Looks great, guys, now let's see if I can.... motivate a couple more customizers to post their work here as well. Or again :)

^LMFAO!  ;D And crying at the same time, because it's probably true....

omg omg omg..... bump!

He looks like one of the Walking Dead.

No he doesn't:
a) The TWD Zombies look 10x better
b) he done walking, bro ;)

But er... this news is in the wrong thread. I'd hardly call Khadaffi a celebrity....  :-X

And why is it that everytime there's something like this, we get a shaky, 320x200 video? Don't these people know how to bring the news? Take your cam, hold it steady, record for a minute or three and then go party like crazy!

Early this year we traded in our 2001 CitroŽn Xsara station for a 2004 Mazda 3 hatchback. Finally rid of that European piece of junk. Give me Japanese anytime (no offense to my fellow American JediDefenders).

And we got rid of our '96 Hyundai Excel and got a 2007 Suzuki Swift back. Funny little car with a harder suspension than the Mazda. That's just what I like  ;D

Zombies don't poop. In fact, they don't suffer from any of the inconveniences we mere mortals are bothered with.

Watched episode 1 of the new season last night. TWD airs on a channel I don't have in my bundle, but I have other ways of watching what I want to watch. Good to be back into this great series. I have zero knowledge of the TPBs/comics, which is probably a good thing, because I can just enjoy it for what it is: damn fine zombie gore on the small screen!

Here's Mandalorian Novoc Vevut.

More pics on my Facebook page

Novoc will be part of a mini dio later on, teaching his adoptive son how to shoot :D

- ROC Reactive Armour Ripcord: head w/sculpted dreads
- TLC-ish Jango Fett: body, resculpted belt
- Animated Debut Boba Fett: helmet
