my kind of scum wrote:Finally, I have located a small amount of free time. Customizing ensued for the first time in a long time.

Not as accurate as Darthstreams' version a few pages ago, but here's my take on Mezgraff from Dark Times:


Based on this outfit:

Sorry. I can't get the photos to upload. Will work on that...

Edit: Forum won't let me upload the photos for some reason. Sorry the links were so wonky. These should work:

http://s1185.photobucket.com/user/sithe ... sort=3&o=4
http://s1185.photobucket.com/user/sithe ... sort=3&o=7



The problem with the images is the width - we can only post images up to 800 pixels wide right now - we've had some issues with image sizing lately. I'll alert Yak_Den to this but I'm pretty sure he's aware. It's an inconvenience for our forum members right now and we're very sorry for this.

Anyways, I shrunk your images a bit. They look great and I remember this guy from Dark Times!

Thanks. Guess I should've paid more attention to what it was telling me. ;)

Wow, I imagine that had to take a healthy dose of white paint. :)

I just read the first issue last night of "The Star Wars" - and really liked it! I was impressed to say the least.

Managed to start up a couple more customs for this, from "The Star Wars" comic.

I'll hopefully be able to finish them up this weekend. :)

Here is a pretty quick custom of Savage Opress from his final comic / cartoon appearance. He is missing 2 horns and has the robotic arm. This is a retool I was hoping Hasbro would have released, since the base figure is so fantastic. I searched several SW droids to find an arm - and didn't find one that I liked, so I went with a vintage GI JOE arm, which I repainted to look a bit more robotic.

Love that Jennir. One of the characters I think we were totally robbed of during Hasbro's comic packs line.

The Dark Horse Comics series "Mara Jade: By The Emperor's Hand" expanded upon the titular character's appearance in Jabba's court during the events of Return Of The Jedi, showing Mara in her Arica disguise wearing a dancer's jumpsuit and trying to win favour so as to be present at Luke Skywalker's planned execution over the Pit of Carkoon.

been very busy this time around and not been able to "hunt" for fodder parts as easily as last spring plus issues w/ my eye, i havent been doing hardly any customs since the cw round giving my eye some rest. Anyways heres Celeste Morne. I was planning on a different KOTOR force user but still coming up short on usable parts and then i find ideal parts for this one. The body is from some generic 4" fig i got a coulpe years ago at a Christmas outlet store, dont recall what line, the head is the from the yellow EE female Mando, Shoulder piece: TVC ERG, body armor...flexi-bandage tape. I like to use that some as it is strecthy, easy to cut, sticks great to plastics, and accepts paint really well and stiffens a bit when painted, yet maintains flexibility

Hi Everyone. This is my first time entering the Yakfinities custom figure forum. The figures I am posting below were made back in 1999. I have not done much customizing since, but I am slowly building up a pile of figures to use for parts. I was still a teenager when I made these figures based on Tales of the Jedi. This comic book was my savior from the "dark times." I had read the Thrawn novels and Dark Empire comics, but these stories are just as important to me as the films.

Enjoy.
