    Hey, I thought that it would be a good idea to put all of our custom pics and ideas into one thread. That way we can see them all in one spot and do not have to go " thread hopping"

    ~ I got mod premission to make this Official :)


    I will start this shing ding off.


    My Arc CLone

    Finally, a thread for customs/customizers! I tried starting one in Fan Art, and didnt get a single response. Check out my figures at
    www.thecustomalliance.com/hollis
    (These are only a small part of my customs, since Dan hasnt updated in a while-- I've made about 25 or so)

    I just recently got an itch to put together a custom figure. I wanted to make an original Jedi character 12" figure.

    I have a 12" Qui-Gon that came with the desert poncho.

    That figure was really lame...so I put the poncho on my regular Qui-Gon 12"

    I took the Jedi uniform off of that figure. A couple of days ago I bought a clearanced 12" Matrix Trinity figure.

    I put the Jedi uniform on her. Presto...my own non-existant Jedi figure. Now I just need a name for her....any suggestions?

    I will see if I can get my hands on a digital camera and get a pic of her.

    Those are all awesome guys!

    I need to work on an outfit for her, but I take sad, balding 12" 1978 Leia's and reroot them w/ long, crimped hair so she looks like she did on Endor.

    Whenever I get around to making her dress, I'll photo her and post a link :)

    Ok, this is my first "custom".... Its actually entirely hand built.... I might try my hand at customizing her from a Playskool figure...

    I hope that my next custom will be better once I get a real good brush and make the separate body parts separately.....

    This is my attempt at making a Playskool version of Jedi Master Shaak Ti.

    I like the paint job. I have always thought that the Greedo paint color looks kinda fake and plastic, so you gave it more of a realistic color variance.

    It's teh only part I dared to paint. I'm not very good with paint, especially in large quantities i.e. tunics, but i'm going to give it a bash when I get some brown paint.

    Well I'm really getting into this customising thing.

    Here is my second custom, Mace Windu from the novel 'Shatterpoint'

    My camera has been playing up on me tonight, so I'll try get some better pics tomorrow :)

    Oh, and also, the link above for the Rodian Jedi, please ignore it, for you won't find him there anymore, he is now with Mace at the Brand-Spanking new 'Customs' page.

    I've started customizing my Boba Fett that came in the Fett vs. IG-88 2 pack from the old Shadows of the Empire line. First of all, the antenna is way too short and dinky, so I lopped it off. I then carefully sliced the antenna off the Jango Fett helmet that came in that Target exclusive Geonosian arena accesory set. I glued it on boba's helmet, and la la, it looks great. Next, I took off that lame plastic Wookiee scalp/cape shoulder thing and made new Wookie scalps outta thread and glued em on his shoulder. It looks pretty good, I might wanna redo it tho. Im still looking for just the right fabric to make a cape out of. I'll see if I can get a pic up...
