Thanks much guys!  - And I'm not ignoring the hints on the customizing party.  I'd love to do it again.  As you can probably tell from my lack of attending a monthly meeting in over a year though, my evenings have gotten very busy this year.  Usually winter was slower, but with two kids in dancing, swimming and girl scouts...  well, you can guess the rest.

I will try and clear up a time this summer and see who all it will work for.

That is a fantastic progression of skill!  They are all very well done (old and new) and capture McQuarries images well.  I like the detailing on the new Threepio.  I think perhaps the older one is truer to McQuarrie's proportions, but I like the more masculine proportions of the newer one.

Do you sculpt all of the parts? (on the Steam Punk and '42 series as well?) or do you start with some base figures and embellish?

Nice update.  The Sullistan Jedi is outstanding.  I really lik the dio with Kal and Mereel too.

Here's my next batch of new stuff.

This first one really isn't anything new.  I had a bunch of customized ewoks.  I recently added to the renks with some simple hood swaps.  I just wanted to get a picture of the tribe all together.

The next batch is some random folks from throughout the Empire.

A dashing Moff

A Twi'Lek citizen

A droid hobbyist had fun cobbling together these two...  or maybe they're Feral Droids

An aging moisture farmer

A Morgukai Warrior

Another guard for Jabba's palace

An aristocratic gambler

A Klatooinian Traveler

A smuggler

A new female Mandolorian

Here are all of my Mandolorians together

Here's a cadre of new Jedi

And Finally...  When I finally get around to writing the story many of the characters from my customs and drawings will inhabit, this guy will be the key character.  This is Tranoj, an orphaned Chiss Jedi.  You can see his profile in my SWAG gallery.

Young Tranoj

Adult Tranoj

I will be there with the Minnesota Contingent.  I would love to meet some of the other artists who post their customs here.

I guess it's been nearly a year since I posted anything new here.  I've been busy over the winter.  Here are me new pieces and some updates to old ones.  I have also made some large updates to my SWAG gallery.  Many of my custom figures have corresponding original art and backstories there.   My next big project will be to bring the customs, art and backstories all together in one dossier.

First is a group of Sith.  

Super Articulated Darth Maul - Theed Palace Duel.  I was able to do everything except ball jointed shoulders.

I redid my Battle of Ruusan Darth Bane using the head from the Evolutions pack.

This is a better photo of Darth Omen (owner of the Sith's Herald) to replace the old, bad photo.

This is an Old Republic era Sith Lord

My final new Sith is Darth Ceadus.

Next is my New Republic Commando team, Nexu Squad.  Check out my SWAG gallery for profiles on this group.

First is the Zeltron group commander, Maj. Ciaria Racksala - Codename: Vertigo.

Next is the Bothan 2nd in command, Lt. Skrit Ney’bsiem - Codename: Jackal

Third is the group sniper and communications specialist, Sgt. Rogan Kher - Codename: Hotshot

Fourth is the computer and heavy weapons specialist.  He is a prototype Human Replica Droid, whose body is slowly dying on the chassis.  He's known as Sgt. Grimm - Codename: Reaper

Finally is the Rodian pilot, Lt. Beroodo - Codename: Carrier

Nexu Squad

I do have quite a bit more.  I will post it soon.  Let me know what you think  Thanks!

There are some really cool, unique figure in there.

Nice stuff as always!

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Best Glue?
« on: November 17, 2009, 10:19 PM »
I can't tell from the image if that is Super Glue gel, or if it's the regular liquid type.  I love the gel for customizing.  I have found though, that if a glued part ever does break off, it is much more difficult to get two surfaces with glue residue to mate than it was when the surfaces were only plastic.


All of your stuff is very well done.  I like the diorama backgrounds as well.  It adds another nice layer to the photos.  (I might have a nightmare or two from the last pics though...)

Nice first post.  I detect a KOTOR theme.  :)

Someone did a drawing of a ship on the Star Wars Artists Guild.  Basically their inspiration for that ship was a G.I. Joe Sky Striker, but it was backwards.  It made it look familiar and airworthy, but alien enough to be from Star Wars.  You could try to do something similar with the Rattler.  If you couls reverse the cockpit & canopy, I would suggest either removing the enginer in the middle of the tail, or trying to turn the tail upside down.
