CHEWIE's customs - 2.0 - Updated 06.13.17

Postby YAK_Chewie » Tue Sep 01, 2015 9:32 pm

Hey guys, after nearly a decade of customs here, I am starting a new thread. My old thread can be found HERE.

Some of you may have noticed that most of my older pics are no longer showing. There's an issue with our hosting and to try and get all of those back would take hours upon hours of time. I may eventually go back and do that, but for now, I'm starting fresh. What I definitely WILL do is snap new pics of some older customs. But for now, a few new things.


Random Alien - I bought this guy at a store called V-Stock, he had been sitting there FOREVER... so I decided he was a prime candidate for the current Yakfinities (pegwarmers).

Image

everything - Green Lantern 5POA figure



Female Rebel Officer - Like many other people have seen, Torynn Farr had a bit of a pegwarming problem... I grabbed one on clearance at Target, and came up with this for the current Yakfinities (pegwarmers).

Image

head - TAC Juno Eclipse
helmet - POTJ Snow Gear Obi Wan Kenobi
vest - GI JOE Cover Girl
rest - TBS Torynn Farr



Thug Guard - Parts I assembled for a random guard... maybe he guards a Hutt somewhere?

Image

head - Legacy Bane Malar
torso - Hellboy figure
arms - TVC Bom Vimdin
hands - Starkiller (Raxus Prime)
straps - TBS Starkiller
legs - TVC Weequay


BR-KN1 - This old droid has seen his better days. I'll probably use him in a photonovel somewhere down the line.

Image

head - TAC 4-LOM
torso - TAC CZ-7
right arm - VOTC C-3PO
left arm - TAC CZ-7/Star Tours Captain Rex
crotch - BAD protocol droid
legs - BAD protocol droid

Love these new ones, as always. Your work is top notch!

I particularly love that thug. Such a cool collection of parts that really works well together.

Sorry to see your older pics go, but these provide a great start to a new thread!

I really like the paint work on that GL alien (1st image): weird, but still looks like it could be SW. Also really liking the Hutt (?) thug; definitely looks the part...

Great pics and a very cool background, bust most of all I like the way you create new troopers from existing parts - the first one is something I'd buy instantly if I see it on the pegs, looks right out of a Star Wars movie or game :) Traedon Cusiro is also a very well made figure, very impressive.

Thanks bud, glad you like those. I agree the first trooper turned out pretty cool, I quite like the AT-AT driver helmet on Stormtrooper bodies.

Tradeon Cusiro is also a character (from my photonovels) that I've really grown fond of. I think this look suits him pretty well.

They look great! I've had a couple ideas but never had time or resources (probably patience, too) to do it.

Chewie, I can understand your frustration with server issues - I used to host all my custom pictures on a site I created during college, which I've been paying for well over a decade. They've had a number of issues so I've started uploading pictures to the RS photo gallery. Its so freeing to break away, but its a lot of work to try to fix all those broken links! Luckily, on yakface you can freely edit posts, so I've been able to restore some of my customs.

Its great to see a new thread and equally cool to read that your son is joining the hobby! Your customs always inspire the community on this site. Fantastic work as always - I'll continue to browse with great interest.

That GL alien is fangtastic! I would have bought another one if I had seen how you repainted it. All of your customs would easily fit in any SW background. Great job!
