Thanks for the continued interest & comments, people!
Just a quick (but unfortunately photoless) update on Baron Fel: As per people's much-appreciated input, I have repainted Fel with red stripes and a gray breastplate, and have done a bit of sculpting to his hair and to his turtleneck. Photos to come tomorrow, if all goes well.
Tykrazen, if I have a spare Lumi in the ol' bodies bin, I'll give that a try. That sounds like it could work. The only thing is -- and I'm usually not one to worry about this, but -- the bosom on that figure may not be big enough...
Gregor, thanks for visiting the site! Glad you liked wha you saw. I have a 12" male pants pattern around somewhere, which I may be able to scan in and send you -- do keep me posted on your Leon custom. I'd be glad to help out in whatever way I can.
RollaJedi, about the Gand helmet, I've actually been wondering that myself! I have heard it called both a mask (implying covering just the face) and a helmet (implying covering whole head), so it's a bit ambiguous. One piece of evidence for the latter, though, is the strange sort of "collar"-like piece at the back of Zuckuss's head in both 3.75" and 12" figures (see, for example, this image
). That "collar" wouldn't seem to make much sense unless it were
part of a helmet. In any case, though, if it is
a helmet, it's one that conforms pretty closely to the natural shape of their heads. Just a thought -- hope it makes some sense.
Ryan, thanks for posting! Actually, the two separate chest boxes weren't part of the original plan. They kind of happened serendipitously. I already had the box WITH tubes in my fodder bin. The box WITHOUT tubes, however, I received in trade from Pendragon along with the pilot body. I hadn't been expecting it -- he just threw it in out of the goodness of his heart, and the tubes were already cut off. So it was just one of those things!
More to come soon, along with hopefully some new photos of Soontir and maybe... just maybe... something completely different.
