That's awesome!  The only thing I suggest is that you add a little of the gray back into the hair (unless you're going for a younger Qui-Gon), but overall it is a very nie piece!

Very nice!  Excellent paint job on the steps and greenery.

Oh, I remember now.  It's a little reminiscient of Pulp Fiction...

I just noticed the extra head/mask that is packed in with Obi-Wan and Alpha.  Who is that for?  Is it an actual extra head, or something that slides over one of the other two heads?  I'll have to go back and check out that issue again.

I've reorganized and added to my collection.  Check it out here.

Here are a couple I've used.

These two heads were from Spy Kids.

This 'older' woman was just a ROTS Mon Mothma

And here are a few ideas for bald guys.  This one is also from Spy Kids.

And, as mentioned above, Zartan makes a good bald head.  I used him for my updated Xixor.

Thanks!  And yeah, that's a Mace head.  To bad I couldn't find a Travolta head for the other one.

Very nice work!!  I really appreciate the way you weather your customs without overdoing it.  Can you give us a recipe for this last one?

Here are some new ones.  Let me know what you think.

Here are a few of my Kal Skirata, the wiley old Mandalorian Warrior that Jango Fett recruited to help train ARC Troopers and Republic Commandos.  He's carrying his Verpine rifle and even has his three edged knife on his belt. The recipe was Zuckuss legs, 300th Boba Fett torso and upper arms, Endor Trooper lower arms, G.I.Joe Jinx skirt (Kama), head from the line of WWII figures Walmart carries, and a hollowed out POTF Boba Fett head for the bucket.

Next was my 2nd Omega Squad Republic Commando.  Once again, he's wearing the flat black Katarn armor mentioned in the novel 'Triple Zero'.  The body was stock.  The backpack and weapon were customized.

Next was a pair of guards.  I decided to call them Hapan Honor Guards.  Recipe was a POTF Bib Fortuna body, various Darth Vader arms, Skiff Guard Lando helmet (without the mask) and a couple extra heads I had.

Next was Emtrey, the M-3PO military protocol droid that was assigned to Rogue Squadron.  I didn't really care for the way the head was drawn in the 'Essential Guide to Droids'.  This was my own take.  Recipe was a ROTS C-3PO, some modified chuncks of the DS Gunner's helmet, and the Jedi underwater breathing accessory from TPM.

Finally, a made an Imperial R3.  My paint didn't turn out as crisp as I would have liked.  My white took several coats to cover, especially where I made mistakes with the black.  My biggest problem, however, was how sloppy Hasbro applied the green on the head of the original figure.  Their overspray shows behind my black.  Overall though, I thought the black and white made a nice contrast for an Imperial Astromech.

I finished my Skirata last night and am VERY happy with how it turned out!  I also finished a second Omega Squad Commando and should be able to finish up an Emtree (M-3PO) from Rogue Squadron tonight.  Hope to get the pics up as soon as possible.

I love that final photo with the on-board computer.  It adds instant realism to a police vehicle.  What are the helmets on those officers from?

Thanks for the comments!  I was on the fence about the antenna on the maintenance droid myself.  I figured because of his size, he does not have a very powerful central processor and operates more as an extension of a larger maintenance control copmuter.  He's a little more autonomous than a battle droid, but depends highly on being able to relay complicated diagnostics back to a more powerful system and database.

On the courrier droid, I recalled droids in the NR senate being mentioned quite a bit in the Thrawn Trilogy, when they were trying to find Delta Source.  In a society where they almost always have the option of delegating physical tasks to machines, it seemed logical that droids act a senate courriers and pages.  They are easier to arm/defend and less likely to be corrupted than a live being would be.

I set out to make one or two of these droids.  In doing so all the right spare parts presented themselves to create the rest.

Thanks for the comments!  I'm currently working on a second Omega Squad Commando and a Cal Skirate, so look for those soon.
