I'm really liking this guy; great parts selections. The bits and pieces really go well together and create a trooper "similar but different" (in Lucas-speak) to the traditional stormie. Very nice!

I REALLY wanted imperial logo decals to make arm patches, but for some reason, nobody on the entire internet sells imperial logo waterslide decals for 1:18 scale action figures!!

That's exactly what I was thinking when I read that post! Erik doesn't get the recognition he once did because he doesn't really update his site much; but at one time Erik's site was THE site for decals and background images.

Now that is really, really cool.

I love the parts used, paint scheme, etc. It's a striking figure to say the least - very well done, BL4CK5H33P!

Can you share a parts list?

:wink:

Hello Everyone!!

QUANTUM 7 customs here..

I'm new to the forums but have been visiting Yakface for years! I have ALWAYS enjoyed seeing everyone's custom work. SO many talented people and so many awesome customs!! Love the all !!

I saw posted everywhere this new "Imperial Troopers" contest and had a few troopers that I wanted to share with the community!!

Take a look...

Death Trooper: One of my first attempts at sculpting many,many years ago ....My concept was that these were specialized killing troopers. Non-humans who answered to Vader and Vader alone. Sort of like his version of the Red Guards the Emperor employs......

I can not for the life of me remember where the body came from. I know it was another toy line , a long since dead toy line. The head was entirely sculpted with super sculpy..

Welcome to the forums - very cool concept, that's a great idea... thanks for sharing!

Note - older customs are not eligible for a prize but are certainly welcome for posting - thank you for pointing out it was an older figure you made.

Also, I think the base of it's from a Machestro Xyber 9 figure.

Here's a link to the rules - Yakfinities Guidelines/Rules

Hope that all makes sense... and if you have time to whip a custom for the random drawing, we'd love to see it (either way, we'll still add this to the Roundup Report)!
