The way the helmet is sitting on him reminded me of the helmets of the Visitor Shocktroopers from V back in the day and how I wish they would have had a line of figures from that show especially the shuttlecraft/fighter.

I love the story of GNK-O. She looks like she'd fit in on Kessel. I love the design, too.

Thanks! The cloth upper part was a lot less difficult than I thought (plus it's just superglue, no sewing). I have a pattern for a good tunic I'll have to scan sometime. I finally got an officer's cap for him, but I did like how the visor sat so low :)

Evilivo wrote:Well, that's strange, I saw that Mudtrooper officer and thought I commented on him. Did you show him in any Facebook group? He is a pretty cool character and your custom is superb! The muddy paintjob on the coat is quite good.
The droid is fun, reminds me a bit of a post office box :) Clever use of parts here.

Yup, I posted him in a Star Wars custom group and in the "3 & 3/4 inch action figure community" group. lol I can see that!

Utinniii wrote:Great Gonk (and other creations). I had a bunch I wanted to do but didn't have time for.
It looks like it would fit in the SW universe. I like your color choice as well.
I had the same idea for the legs, but for a different style of droid) that I'm hoping to finish before December ends.
I also borrowed your tank tread idea for a recent project.


I saw those treadwells in the yakfinities thread. they are among my favorite submissions thus far! I have two more droids I have almost finished and I hope to get them done before the yakfinities ends as well...

Please see above post for some parts I'm looking out for. Posted in the for sale and trade area of the forums too.

As promised, here are the elite brothers, Captain Arcad (orange pauldron), "Duo" (vertical pouches), and "Musket" (the one with the musket....). Here they are under the command of Lieutenant Maron Namony, and "that grunt who survived" in the background.

Here is a photo of the AT-DT I repainted also:

:wink:


Thanks! Here are some more close up photos. Panel lining the entire thing was actually very fun, and I like how the mud turned out. Thanks for the compliments!

Lox Padarco got riled up during a sensitive conversation with Saelt Marae. Yakface remained calm as Lox rambled on threateningly giving Yakface all the info he wanted...
This custom started back when we were doing the droids challenge with the legs. I loved how those legs fit with the pants. That's as far as I got lol. Then I decided to put some more pieces together and finished this up just this last week.

Recipe:
head/hands: VTSC Greedo
lower leg: 4-lom
Upper legs: TBS Mosep Bineed
Torso: Was from the fodder box. I want to say it was the green rebel fleet trooper from a comic pack
Upper arms: TCW Anakin
Lower arms: 30th Galactic marine
Cybernetic collar: TVC Snoke

Don't usually do non-star wars customs, but I bought an acid rain figure from a friend at work, so I will probably be doing a few apocalyptic type custom figures, starting with this one. The poncho is based on Jyn Erso's poncho on Eadu. Base figure was a GI Joe Renegades Duke. Quite pleased with how the leg paint turned out as well as the weathering.

This was a great weekend for customs. Knocked out 3 figures of varying difficulties. Val was the most complex, but probably the most rewarding. I also really like how Beckett turned out. The goggles are removable, and he has his original holsters. Both val and the six inch figure have cloth scarves. The six inch figure was mostly a repaint, with a sculpted mustache and cast armor and hat. Might try selling the 6" figure, might not... we'll see. The paint I used for the armor is as close to the actual screen-used color as I could get (citadel castellan green). I prefer the cast armor since the snowtrooper armor isn't actually accurate mudtrooper armor. I also added a leather strap, belt and cast pouch to my lieutenant. The lieutenant and Beckett have accurate and appropriate rank insignia on their armor.

Another non-star wars custom after my bout with Mimban. When I first found this character online I really wanted to make a custom of it. With some patience I found the fodder for a good price (toybiz Doctor Strange, Rhino BAF wave Ghost rider). The cloak is completely custom made, and wired.

A couple more customs over the weekend I completed. Repainted my scarif captain and added a squad leader to the mix. Gave him a soft-goods skirt.
The Sith is of no particular reference, but I liked the way he looked so I went with the original design! He is made from GI Joe and Thor parts.
