This is Ervin Van Messer. He is an officer in the ISB Alien Relocation Unit. His mission is to relocate aliens ' for their own safety to other parts of Corusant. The Rebels and their supporters know that what the ISBARU really does is remove aliens from the more desired locations of Corusant and many other planets.

Image

He was made from an E3 Bail Organa. His hat is a repainted Lt. Jundland hat. HIs machine pistol is a G.I. Joe Viper machine pistol that I modified to look like a futuristic German MP40. I made his dagger. HIs pistol is a repainted Bail Organa pistol. His belt across his chest was made from a band that was around another figure. I just painted it black & painted on the buckle.

Wow, that's stellar! I love what you did here. I've been looking to make some sort of "new" looking Imperials, and really like how you gave him an original look, yet fits in well with the Empire. Very well done!

My last figures made for this... and while I'm not eligible for a prize, this theme was too fun for me to not try and make as many customs as I could.

Commander Rykrof Enloe by scarrviper, on Flickr

Former republic peace officer, clone wars veteran and imperial renegade. Here's rebel commander Rykrof Enloe from yak_chewie's photo novels. Been wanting to make this guys for a long time. I tried to give him a look that could be suited for combat or for formal briefings and such.

Thanks - that was just the torso from the Dark Trooper figure in the Legacy Line. The wires/pipes are part of his torso (it's turned upside down for this figure).
