Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Custom Works By Jedi_Master_Ben

these are really great items! i'm blown away by the podracers most of all -- amazing! i look forward to seeing more of your work completed.

well since remodeling the upstairs bathroom & attempting to organize my star wars room has consumed most of my life i only have a little time for customs right now. however, i have a small update tonite.

i did this Roron Corobb real world version for a friend and just got it done. the body isn't the greatest, but it was all i had at the time. the torso & arms is a AOTC Obi-wan pilot, the rest is sculpey & POTF2 Hammerhead. i completely repainted Hammerhead's skin, he had that dead E.T. skin look going on which wasn't working too well. my husband dremeled out the arms and added Hammerhead's in. I didn't really do "weathering" per se on this figure, it was more just a series of washes. the figure may look shiny in spots, but that's just my camera flash flare...its been dull-coted. i'm working on a version 2 for myself with a better torso....just got the pants sculpted so it'll be awhile before i get him painted. as always, thoughts & comments welcome & enjoy! :)

this is really going to be interesting. good luck dremeling the armor off. be careful, don't want scorch to claim a finger or something like that  :-X

I've been so busy, I haven't been online for a few days & just now have a few moments to comment.

Wonderful job Phruby! I think this has to be my favorite custom of yours that I have seen. The blue color match on the body is dead on & the head really lends itself to this body. The leather worked out really well, glad I could help out. I sent extra for other Microman/lady or any other projects, leather is great to have around for soft goods :)

well, i never ordered from yestertoys...wanted to wait & see if they were still in business.  i'll just pick up a Rykrof on ebay so i can join in on the project.

Brent i really like your Robo-Rykrof & i can't wait to see what you do with the mutant head/clone gone wrong reminds me of the Ripley clones gone wrong in Alien Resurrection  8)

lestat, the new hair looks much better b/c its not so "poofy".  its a huge improvement, much more movie accurate.

as far as the fraying goes on the soft goods, BrentS is right, clear nail polish will do it, or even just some clear elmer's glue. just need to get the "frays" pasted down & then they won't be noticable at all.

wonderful job on this custom, i look forward to seeing more of your work and welcome :)

nice looking Rykrof Phurby. i like how everything is simple on the outfit, looks very clean.

i'm behind as usual, worked on remodeling the bathroom all weekend  :'(  gonna order some stuff from tonite.

this is going to be really interesting Phurby. i still am not quite sure if i totally like the microman/woman bodies yet...the articulation is incredible, they still look a little strange to me the way the joints are "exposed".

i would definitely use a little sculpy & if you could get your hands on some scrap leather it would work really well for her pouch & tassel thingys. i've got a whole big bag of scrap leather, the real stuff no vinyl crapola...PM me & i can send some scraps to you if you want some for this project.

Darth Viscera looks like he belongs in KOTOR III ! the paint scheme & apps on him are great and he looks like a real bada$$. the soft goods cape looks wonderful too, very nicely done.

the ARC looks neat too, i like the design and color on the phase 2 armor a lot...your original designs continue to interest me on the clones, which is saying a lot after painting quite a few and getting image overloads of others work on them.

the Commandos look like they jumped off the cover of a novel, these guys are really amazing. i haven't played the game or read any of the books, heck i don't even have a Scorch fig at all myself but i can appreciate the wonderful paint apps and weathering you have given these guys. can't wait to see them completely done - great job so far!

those are nice looking upgrades. my fave is the Vader, the purple lenses and shoulders are very nice touches. the Yoda looks much better already, the paint apps on the eyes make a huge difference.

i'm kind of doing 1/6th upgrades to a point, but i like to create variations on characters that won't really be released in the near future, and create my own characters. and btw SS has released a couple of 1/6th that Hasbro did in the past like Mace Windu & the Solo Bespin that will be coming i have no reason to think SS won't be doing something that has already been done.

i like the dead snowtrooper best of all your imperial zombies fritz. the story makes it believable in my mind, along with the paint apps on the deadite parts of the trooper. good job on this one  8)

wow those look really nice. i'm most impressed with the paint apps on these guys. the armor looks like real painted metal, the depth of color and layering you have achieved is something that is rarely seen and sets your Mandalorians far apart from others i have seen lately. i like the addition of the bandolier with the bullets on it, that's a nice touch but not over the top. excellent work!

Chewie, i loved your Pimp Daddy photonovel, very fun!

Ennis you'll have to put me down on the list please.
something like "Pimp Daddy Kenobi does Dallas" is coming to my mind ... but don't worry it will be family safe i promise  ;D

all i can think of about the head on the right is he has the death sentence on 12 systems!  :P
