Thank you!!!! :) Sorry I missed your comment though!

So one thing I’ve thought about for a while is making a custom of myself. Right now, I’m not sure what the costume theme will be, but I was leaning toward an adventurer type.

I have a few ideas for the head, but right now I’m thinking about the Luke from the Rebel Alliance commando comic pack. I’m sure anything I chose will need the facial hair added.

Ideas?

And for reference...

I posted a custom of myself in the pre-chatter for what became the Tribal Aliens Yakfinities. Finding a head was the hardest par, because even though the figure is goofy, I did want it to look like me, and I saved it for future use. I think your Comic Luke is a good idea. The Cade Skywalker head also has a similar handsome face and has some hair to it.

I remember that! And the Cade Skywalker head is a good idea, thank you! If I recall right, it’s a little tanner than I am, but it had sculpted facial hair...which would be a big bonus!

One day I want to make me in carbonite so I can hang in my Jabba diorama.


Do you mean the Terminator Salvation line? I have a few of those in my custom box I think! And yes! Maybe some of the Will Turner figures would be good?

That is an amazing thought. Everyone needs a carbonite version of themselves!

Hi Jodo, I think a Will Turner figure could work, you could also try a Marvel Fandral figure and cut down the beard a bit (if you can get past the smirk on the figure that is). I don't know if there is 3.75" Sirius Black figure out there - I think there is, but it might be NECA (and so very expensive) - that might work to. So Will Turner might be your best bet if you don't want to try and sculpt the facial hair.

Ahh, Fandral would be a good one too! And Sirius Black is an excellent choice as well! I looked it up, and they did make one:

I actually bought a few of the “riot gear” Owns for fodder, so that would be a super good choice as well!!!!!

That one would be very good!!!! Does anyone know if the Zizzle POTC figures had balljointed heads or not?

I always wish I had bought that line when it was available...The Black Pearl playset would have been very cool to have.

Yeah, POTC figures have ball-jointed heads. I also have a Sirius Black head if you need one.
