EndorJunkie wrote:darth_sidious: Wow! That is fantastic, I love the design! What a great character!


Thanks a lot, we should add to the backstory that your sweet version of Fett was hired by Maz to track these critters down in her castle. :P

Starchaser wrote:That's a great design and fun concept. Kudos.


Thanks, glad you like it - I wanted to go with an oddball design, because I can never have too many SW creatures. Speaking of interesting designs, I like the direction you went with Holdo, what body did you use? In the Princess Leia novel, they wear jumpsuits during training, so this design would be a great representation of that.

Thanks darth_sidious - I used a "Thunderbirds Are Go" Kayo Kyrano figure for Holdo. The flight/jump suit works well for female characters (though it lacks some of the articulation of the Vintage Collection bodies),

I came across this Ep. 8 concept picture of Kylo Ren and had wanted to make him for some time.

The head is from an Ep. 8 POA Kylo figure, with the hair removed. A fellow customizer suggested using crazy glue to Green Stuff to fill in the head. When the glue was still wet, I sprinkled baking soda to add texture. Looks scarred, I think. I painted the head with a combo of pink and white paint (couldn't find my flesh colored paint) and then dabbed black hair in place with a Q-tip. (Not completely satisfied with the hair; it may go.) Also dabbed white paint in the right eye to look like it's bad.

The body is the BS Kylo with the skirt trimmed.

I've been wanting to make a six-inch version of this guy.

While this contest was one I was most looking forward to, I just didn't have any time.
Droid is Model Magic (shaped in a freezie container) with a Heroclix base.
Gator Guy is a random Corps figure, Jedi robe and a TMNT (I think) not-LEGO head.

Nice work everyone, I had two more on the desk, but couldn't get them painted in time - work and family life had too many moving parts. I might yet post them if I can get them finished in the next few days, just so folks can see them. Congratulations on some most amazing customs this round.
