Thanks Smarty, it's up  here now too -


Jedistyle, yep that pic is from the Geonosian Arena.  It was hard to try and get that scene the way I wanted, and it's still not exactly what I hoped for but I think it's close.

Thanks and hope you guys like this chapter.

So great to see you here at JD.  As one of the best customizers in the known galaxy, I do hope you continue to post your work here and find time to comment.

I have seen most of this before, but I think it's all beautiful work! 

I don't know if I ever said this, but I am positively in love with Master (Mistress?) Tala, as much as it's possible for a man to love a 4" plastic toy.  She's gorgeous.

And look at all the Ithorians!  Holey moley!  The new Hammerhead sculpt is great, but you've proven what a versatile figure it is....your creations are never less than astounding in the originality and execution.

Aces all around, old friend.  Fantastic work.

Great to see you back---even if it isn't going to be immediate, we all love you here. Nice work over the past few weeks. Always nice to see some new stuff, particularly the Arcona. I think you're the first to ever do the species in such large volume. :)

Hey guys, wadda know... an update!  Thanks for the comments on the last batch, here's some more now too.  I'll try and post here some more, but chances are with my schedule, it will be limited.

DURGE - Just a repaint but I think it turned out well - if he were to have shown up in a film, this is more of a look I would prefer.

parts used
- Clone Wars Swoop Durge
- Vader cape
- Army of Darkness mace

RATIIN - I figure this guy is a mechanic, used to be a school teacher on Coruscant before Imperial doctrine began to be taught in the classrooms.  At that point, he retired from teaching and went a new direction with his career.

parts used
head - ROTS Ask Aak
hands - ROTS Ask Aak
legs - ROTS Ask Aak
rest - SAGA2 Garindan

FREELO - A redo for him in the upcoming Dathomir chapters in Rykrof Enloe saga... Freelo is becoming one of my favorite characters so I really can't wait to get to explore his character more!

parts used
head - ROTS Meena Tills
hands - ROTS Meena Tills
holster - VSTC Han Solo
backpack - SAGA Dengar
rest - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver

CLONE ASSAULT VEHICLES - you may recall the one on the left that I made a while back for a fellow collector - I just finished the second version on the right.

parts used
- Batman Tumbler
- various parts

And here's a shot of it in action before it was mailed to its new home...

Cudo the Smuggler - made him for this month's Yakfinities

head - VSTC Greedo
hands - VSTC Greedo
arms - VSTC Greedo
torso - SAGA2 Garindan
legs - SAGA2 Garindan


This is the same version as above just slightly repainted and also a tarp/canopy that is rolled up.  The guy I made it for wanted to know if I could add that so it was no problem.  It's just a SAGA2 Luke poncho rolled up and glued on there.

Anchisis the Slayer

head - ROTS blue guard
torso - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
arms - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
gloves - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
legs - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
jacket - POTJ Rebel Fleet Trooper

TYLIN GERE - close friend of Rykrof Enloe

head - POTJ Boshek
torso/arms - SAGA2 Moff Jerrod
legs - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
gloves - can't remember... SAGA2 Veers?

BRISS - made for an idea for a Rebel design for the Ultimate Group Project, but also going to be a character in the Rykrof Enloe series on Dathomir - figured I could kill two birds with one stone on this custom

head - BBI figure
torso/arms/gloves - SAGA2 Endor Rebel
legs - POTC Gotal

DENON DELOW - a close advisor to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine in the Rykrof Enloe series

head - SAGA Imperial Dignitary
body - SAGA2 Rep Been
hands - SAGA2 Naboo Soldier

TRAEDON CUSIRO - made for the Rykrof Enloe series

head - BBI figure
torso - POTJ Biker Scout
arms - POTF2 300th Fett
hands - SAGA TIE Pilot
thighs - POTC Gotal
shins - ROTS Commander Gree

FREELO - another design for this Mon Calamari in the Rykrof Enloe series

head - ROTS Meena Tills
hands - ROTS Meena Tills
torso/arms - POTC Gotal
legs - SAGA2 Endor Rebel

RYKROF ENLOE - another design for the main character in the Rykrof Enloe series

head - SAGA Endor Rebel
helmet - SAGA2 Commander Cody
rest - ROTS Evolutions Clonetrooper

TRASKAAR - a smuggler who frequents Tatooine.

head - POTC Myo
torso - VSTC Biker Scout
arms - VSTC Biker Scout
thighs - VSTC Biker Scout
shins - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
swoop - SAGA Anakin repainted

I figure this guy has a swoop for when he is on Tatooine when he has to make a quick getaway back to his ship, so that's why I made a swoop for him.

GRAGRA - just a repaint - first you see a comparison pic of before and after.

parts used -

SAGA2 Gragra

Just a repaint, and I know I didn't follow the TPM paint scheme like Hasbro did or in the movie, but I am happy with this version better.  I'd also make more of these if I could find a good body/torso for them.   So far no luck.

CLONE TROOPER - I don't know if he's a commander, or a grunt.  Just a repainted #41 clone for a fellow collector. 

parts used -

- ROTS #41 Clone Trooper

SIRIADNE - for the Rykrof Enloe series; a being from Dathomir....

head - Army of Darkness Pit Witch
hands - Army of Darkness Pit Witch
torso/arms - ROTS Kit Fisto
legs - VSTC Tusken Raider

That's all, will post more when they are made and time permits, and thanks again guys for the kind words.

As always, your stuff is RIDICULOUS, Chewie.  Amazing.   :)  I really like the ELizaeth Swann Jedi custom; very nice use of color there.  And the Blizzard snowtroopers, they look like they belong in the movie.

Great paint work on Gragra, although those big red eyes do freak me out a little. Then again, so does her entire face!

Same goes for the Dathomir creature. From what I've read in the novels, Dathomir isn't the cosiest place to hang around, mainly because of its residents... Excellent low profile paint on that er... being.

The Clone Trooper looks green, man! As in fresh from the training grounds, that is. Nice straight lines there and the colour of the visor is a nice change as well.

Thanks guys, much appreicated and it's great to hear from you Spuffy!

IncomT65, the Dathomir stuff will be a lot of fun, I promise!  Thanks for the kind comments.  I've got a few more too -

Also, I know I compain quite a bit that I don't have enough time to customize... it's pretty true.  I have to usually customize very late at night and work on my photonovels at odd hours to even be able to do them.  Once the baby is born in June, I wonder how much free time I'll have for this.

That being said, I took advantage of last weekend and got a few more customs done.

D4-602 - ancient astromech droid

--- Version 1, early February 2006 ---

I wasn't happy with it at that point, and some people at Scum suggested I weather him some more and add an eye to his dome.  So here was my second attempt -

--- Version 2, late February 2006 ---

Really though, I was not happy with that version either.  People said it was better, but I though that I totally overdid the painting/weathering and that it looked like he had barely survived a fire or something.  So this weekend, I dusted him off and tried again.

--- Version 3, December 2006 ---

I can't remember what all the parsts were to this, but the primary difference is the dome - it's from part of a wheel to some army tank.  I think I like this paint scheme a lot better.  I know it's not perfect, but I think this is how this droid will appear in the Rykrof Enloe series now when it is time for his time to shine.   :wink:


Ok, the next custom this weekend is a something a little different than usual.  I wanted a diorama prop!  So here it is -

INFORMATION TERMINAL, intergalactic use

parts used -


All I did was take FX-7 apart for another custom and here's what I had left.  I figured that there should be terminals all over the galaxy that inform travelers and citizens of information, such as directions, current news, etc.  So that is what this is and Freelo from the Rykrof Enloe series is using it in the above image.


This next one is a custom Jedi.  I figured I need to start introducing some more Jedi in the Rykrof Enloe series, so here is a new one that will appear sometime.

TANS TIBBLE, Jedi Knight

head - POTF2 Ishi Tib
hands - ROTS Ask Aak
torso - Evolutions AOTC Anakin
arms - Evolutions AOTC Anakin
tunic - ROTS Mace Windu
legs - Evolutions AOTC Anakin


And finally, my personal favorite from this bunch.  A droid that I plan on being an important droid in the Rykrof Enloe photonovel series at some point.

T3-14, ancient service droid

head - POTJ FX-7
arms - POTJ IG-88
torso - greeblies
base - SAGA R1-G4

That's it for a while folks!  Gonna work on a Yakfinities custom or two, then some UGP stuff and a photonovel.

Looks like I'm overdue for an update, so here goes nothing -

Kovin Thatyel - This is a fan fiction Jedi for the Rykrof Enloe series. He will not live to be an old man, to be explained in a photonovel before too long.

parts used

head - SAGA2 Naboo Soldier
hands - SAGA2 Naboo Soldier
torso/arms/legs - ROTS Pilot Obi Wan

Traedon Cusiro - His appearance will be very soon in the Rykrof Enloe series.

parts used

head - BBI figure
torso/arms - ROTS Ki Adi Mundi
hands - ROTS Count Dooku
legs - ROTS Plo Koon

Old Probe Droid - something probably early Rebels use, or other small factions throughout the galaxy.  most likely  pretty clumsy droid.

parts used

- ROTS clone pilot radar dish x 2
- Bust Up Darth Maul base
- Y-Wing engine
- vintage Sandcrawler droid treads/base

11-B - Some sort of fan fiction, outdated medical droid.

parts used

head - SAGA2 Firespeeder pilot backpack
torso - SAGA research droid
arms - SAGA research droid/POTJ FX-7 appendages
legs - OTC IG-88

Alyssa Enloe - Another version of her, in some crazy nightgown.  This one was very hard to paint.

parts used

head - GI JOE Bombstrike
torso - Pirates 3 Preview Elizabeth Swan
arms - POTC Rabe handmaiden
legs - EPI Coruscant Queen Amidala

Jedi Knight Clorri - A few fun, yet expensive custom to put together.  Look for this fan fiction Jedi to show up in the Rykrof Enloe series, along with her former Master, Tala, in the second pic.

head - Pirates 3 Preview Elizabeth Swan
torso - SAGA2 Bousch Leia
vest - Pirates 3 Preview Elizabeth Swan
arms - SAGA2 Bousch Leia
legs - ROTS Luminara Unduli
skirt - Clone Wars Asajj Ventress

Secret Santa Yakface Gift Exchange (to Famine) - another version of the Dathomir witch - the one on the left is the original, the one on the right was sent to him for Christmas

head - ROTS Nemoidian Warrior
hood - POTJ Obi Wan Kenobi
body/arms - SAGA2 Bib Fortuna

A.S.C. - Armored Squad Carrier

Here's a pic of what I started with, a vintage Imperial transport -

Then, I copied the Fritzkrieg walker a bit that he posted a couple weeks ago, giving it a dirtier paint job, and less firepower.  This is from the walker from the GI JOE Sigma Six line. 

L.A.S.T. - Light Armored Scout Transport

Total pain to paint, I did the whole thing by hand on both vehicles in this update, should have used some spray paint!  I don't see myself making any more vehicles for a while!
