I know. It started off as just an attempt at dremeling the head to fit a ball joint. Then I thought he would look better with brown hair, then the beard, and then it hit me how much he looked like Kyle. But I still really need to bulk up the body some. I want to go with something similar to what he looked like in Star Wars Tales....cant remember the issue number, but he was fighting Vong if that helps. I think he was a little too bulky there, but I want something in between that and what he is now. As it stands, his head looks too big for the body.

Can I ask what head you used for your Kyle Katarn?

Definitely! I used a Jurassic Park 3 Military General.....heck of a name, but you can find pics of him



Not my site by the

Lots of characters in there that could be used for heads and such....just needs a bit of a paintjob to modernize them and fit them into SW stuff. Hope that helps.

Go there, check them out, and let me know what you think. Some of the stuff I have already posted are up there, but there are a lot of things that you guys have probably not seen from me yet, especially some of the older stuff! Also, if you see anything I should change about the site, please let me know. I am new to the whole site building thing!

Man, I was browsing the pictures, and it is almost looking at concept art figures. These are all excellent reimaginings of the characters, and represent them all faithfully, while still being something totally your own! Congratulations, I just peed myself!

Phruby, thats exactly what gave me the inspiration to use the head. I have been thinking about doing a black uniform version, and hope I can find the extra head I have around here somewhere. If not, I can always just swap the head back and forth. But the head looks almost identical to him from the art I found for him from Outbound Flight!

Thanks Phruby and MetalJedi! I still am partial to Sithfires K'kruhk, but of course mine has something special going for it for me too....I like them both for different reasons.

I had always thought of K'kruhk as a Kung fu type guy....with the hat and all, so the walking stick was a must. I have never seen him use one in the comics, but for my own purposes, it suits.

As far as the Thrawn....I used the head of a Jurassic Park army guy. I cant for the life of me remember his name. Had blonde hair (the version I had anyway). Hope that helps, and if I come across the name or a reference pic of the original figure, I will post it.

Thanks again!

Wow! That is some amazing work. Hard to believe that the foamcore and foamies are holding and supporting all of those figures. You have me wanting to try my hand at some of these!

Whoa! The eyes on the Jedi master look real. Care to share your technique?

If you are speaking of Jedi Master K'kruhk, then its an easy technique really....

I used Games Workshop Inks on them. In the comics he has a light green color where our eyes would be white, and the part of our eyes that have color are a darker green. Then of course the black pupil. So what I did, was take my GW Dark Green ink, mix in a bit of yellow ink to lighten it up significantly from the darker green. Paint that on...about 2 coats should do. Then go with the dark green, and make a circle in the middle, and expand it out until it looks about what that part of our eyes look like. Then a touch of black ink in the middle for the pupil, and its done. The finished effect with the inks is that it is shiny, like an eye should be. I did give it a light coat of clear gloss, which it didnt need, but I did it more to protect the paintjob on the eyes. Hope that helps. Of course his eyes are like 5-6 times bigger than any other figures that makes a lot of difference.

Thanks so much for the comments guys. I really do appreciate them. Oh, almost forgot......

8) K'Kurhk was very cool.Great job on resculpting the Luke heads

The Luke heads were not resculpted at all...just given a more lifelike paintjob, with different fleshtones used to highlight certain areas. But thanks though, makes the comment seem even better when it appears to others that I have guys sure do know how to humble a guy! Thanks and keep those comments and critiques coming. I should have more up after I get settled in after my move the middle of this month!

Thanks Anton! Glad ya like it. It definitely was tough to do, but well worth it in the end!

Okay, I know its not SW, and i know its not 3 and 3/4, but I would like to show it to you guys..... if you are interested in such things anyway.....Kratos from God of War. In the Marvel Legends Scale! Check more pics and a description of how I did it on my site. He is also up on ebay if you know anyone who may be interested!!


Okay, I have done another update to my site, and also tossed my custom K'kruhk on ebay, for anyone interested. Here are a couple of the updates, but you have to go to the site to check out the full galleries and descriptions....Jeditaz's Dark Side Customs

Check out the galleries and do the usual....comments, critiques, gripes, anything, I can handle it!!!


Update....check out my site for some stuff you have seen, and a lot that you haven't!

Some of you may know me from Rebelscum, but I figured I would venture over here as well and share the love! Here are some of my more recent works. Please, any comments, critiques, and all that jazz are more than welcome!

Jedi Master K'kruhk.....this one started off as quite a few things, and I cant even remember what all I used as base parts. I know the head is a heavily modified Saga Jquille Head....and everything you see that you dont recognize is sculpted using fixit sculpt. Yes....even the hat! As far as the walking stick goes...I just wanted him to have one, and it was made using wire with Fixit sculpt covering it. Robe was hand sewn.

Several Lukes that I have tweaked/repainted

Arc Trooper...just a gray Arc with lots of added gear!

Grand Admiral Thrawn, just because I hate the POTF2 Version

Repainted head and smaller hands on the Infinities Leia

Mara Jade...who wants a figure with a receding hairline anyway...and also repainted the eyes completely. They were looking 2 different ways before!

Let me know what ya think!
