This is the first commission I've ever done, and I'm happy with the results.  I hope my friend is to!

Nikto Rebel Pilot:

head- Klaatu, TVC
body- Luke Skywalker, TSC
hands- some random Darth Maul... (the figure was helmet-less and hand-less when I got him)
helmet- Porkins helmet, modified to fit the head perfectly. 

I love making alien versions of pilots and jedi.

Here's a really quick update!  I created a "steampunk" lightsaber for a friend, influenced by Ezra's lightsaber from Star Wars Rebels.  It's made from random pieces I found in my fodder bin, so I don't have a recipe.

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile!  My fodder supply is greatly depleted, so I can’t find parts to assemble any figures right now.  It seems like all I have are decapitated POTF figures…  Any way, until I can find some reasonably priced fodder, I’m devoting my free time to constructing modded weapons and accessories.  Hopefully I’ll be able to make figures to accompany them soon!

Here's a figure that I've had completed for a while, but as it's a pretty simple one, I decided I needed a cool gun to accompany her.  Here's my female Falleen Smuggler. 

Recipe:
head- TVC Barriss Offee (dremmeled)
braid- random Skylanders figure, painted.
body- Cato Parasitti

The gun was assembled using parts from several different G.I. Joe and Star Wars weapons that have been chopped up, glued together, sanded, and weathered. 

I don't yet have anything to sculpt with, but when I do, I'm going to try and make her look more reptilian.

I know, not a custom, but I was messing around with the Clone Wars Quinlan Vos figure that I FINALLY got my hands on at long last, and I took this picture of him and my chick, Lady Sif.

Here's a custom I'm super excited about!  I've been gathering parts to assemble Joruus C'baoth for a while, and I finally picked up a LOTR Gandalf at a swapmeet, and was able to finish.  All softgoods are sewn by me, and I hope to do more softgoods in the future as I really enjoy sewing!

Insane Jedi Clone Joruus C'baoth, from the Thrawn Trilogy.

Recipie:
head- Gandalf
torso and arms- GI Joe (Sorry, I know nothing about Joes, so I can't tell you which one)
legs- Bail Organa
medallion- custom made by me out of necklace chain and an earring base.
soft goods robe and skirt- custom made by me out of cotton cloth, whetted and dried to drape correctly.
lightsaber- misc. fodder (hilt), party toothpick blade, (I intend to redo this when I acquire a green lightsaber blade.)

Feedback is appreciated!!!!!!!!   vadsab

Here's a quick figure I threw together as a gift.  This is "sith apprentice Padme", or what would happen if Padme were to follow Anakin to the dark side and become his apprentice. 

Recipe:
head- Padmé Naberrie, Episode I Collection
arms- Barriss Offee, AOTC
hands- clone trooper, TVC?
torso and legs- Mara Jade, Power of The Force 2
shoulder armor and loincloth- Asajj Ventress (sith apprentice)
belt buckle- Darth Vader
mask/helmet- ASP-7 Labor Droid
lightsabers- misc. fodder

I certainly haven't posted in a while!  Any way, here's the young Nautolan custom I made for my sister.  She loved the Nautolan padawan "Zatt" from Star Wars The Clone Wars show, and was disapointed when Hasbro didn't make a figure of him.  (no surprise there)  I created this figure using a heavily modified Clone Wars Kit Fisto head on a Boush Leia body.  I had to carve up the Fisto head quite a bit, and glue on and reshape (using boiling water) the head tails, but I'm satisfied with the result!  I also made a female Nautolan Fig to accompany him that I will be posting later.  I am super happy with this one, and I hope you all enjoy him to!

recipe:
Head- TCW Kit Fisto (heavily modified)
Body- TVC(?) Boush Leia
Lower arms- misc fodder (TCW Obi Wan?)
Hands- TVC Bariss Offee

Wow! Zatt turned out great - you did a really nice job converting the head. I think that Hasbro really missed out on making the Padawans (I would have liked a Gungi), they were fun characters with a fun story.

This is a female Nautolan that I made to accompany my Zatt Figure.  Her body is from a female G.I. Joe (sorry, I don't know which one) and her head is a modified ROTS Kit Fisto head.  I dremeled the head a bit to make it look a bit more feminine, and added a bit of color to her lips.  I've included a "family photo" just for fun.   :)

I haven't posted in a while due to the Halloween costuming frenzy that consumes my house every year.  I've worked on a few customs, but I never got around to posting them to the yards.  This is a custom inspired by "Numa" from the Innocents of Ryloth episode of Star Wars The Clone Wars.  I may modify her at some point, as she certainly isn't screen accurate, but for now, I'll leave her alone.

Recipe:
Head- Galactic Heroes Aayla Secura
Body- Yoda (Saga Collection)
Hands- ROTS Aayla Secura
Feet- TPM Anakin

I finally finished a custom that I've had in pieces for quite a while.  I wanted to give my Djas Puhr figure some articulation so that he would be more poseable.  I had a spare Bespin Luke lying around, so I decided to combine the two.  I dremeled out the head of Djas Puhr so that it would fit on Lukes neck, and then I painted the neck black.  I grafted Djas Puhr's hands on to Luke's hand pegs.  Lastly, I dremeled out Puhr's holster/belt thing to fit Luke's waist.  I think he looks pretty cool!

Recipe:
Body: Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues - The Vintage Collection)
Head, belt, and hands: Djas Puhr (Star Wars SAGA Series )

I made a few figures a while back that I've been meaning to post, and they're currently up for sale on ebay. 
Clawdite Sith: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/302189442642? (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5575055288&toolid=10001&campid=5337371392&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F-%2F302189442642%3F)

First up is a Clawdite Sith Inquisitor that I assembled out of a Cato Parasitti figure (head) and a Pirates of the Caribbean Elizabeth Swann (body).  The chest and back panels are from miscellaneous fodder that I painted up to match the rest of the fodder.  I also painted the figure's mask, hands, and lightsaber hilt.

I've been busy for a long time with college applications, but I'm finally working on some customs again. The first is one I've been meaning to do for a while. I wanted to give my POF Admiral Thrawn a more articulated body. I don't really have any story to go along with his new outfit, but I think it looks pretty cool.

recipe:
head- Admiral Thrawn (Expanded Universe - The Power Of The Force, 1998)
body- Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight - The 30th Anniversary Collection, 2007)
hands- unknown imperial officer
cape- Asajj Ventress (Sith Apprentice - Tartakovsky Clone Wars, 2012)

Thrawn is a fun concept and I really like how he turned out. (I also like the Clawdite inquisitor - the Cato head works better than a Zam head would I think - catches a "wild eyes" quality).

Thanks, Starchaser! I definitely agree about the Cato head!

So many great ideas on here! I agree with Shawn, the Thrawn figure is excellent! My favourites are the Twi'lek Jedi Hunter, the Nautolan family and Jedi Clone Joruus C'baoth! The detail on the Jedi Hunter is excellent and Gandalf's head fits the portrait of C'baoth well, indeed!
Very inspring and unique customs! Thanks for sharing!

Aa’ Shachen

I'm still working on the backstory for my orange Twi'lek bodyguard, but while I'm working it, I thought I might post this custom. This is my Imperial Twi'lek assassin. Twi'leks are my favorite species in the Star Wars universe, and I've been very disappointed that they haven't shown up in the new movies. I’m sad that there aren’t that many twi’lek figures, but I do enjoy the opportunity to make my own.

Backstory:

Aasha’chen, also known as Aash Achen, was an assassin employed by the empire during the time that Darth Vader was still living. She was the adopted daughter (and only child) of a wealthy family Coruscant family. Her parents were killed when their luxury cruiser collided with an out-of-control frigate. Aasha’chen was 17 at the time, and went to work as a dancer in one of Coruscant’s lower level cantinas. She left her job as a dancer with a Rodian assassin, named Max, who taught her most of her skills. After Max was imprisoned for tax evasion, Aasha’chen went to work for the empire. Though the Empire didn’t typically employ nonhumans, Aasha’chen was an exception due to her ability to pose as a slave girl. She was very successful as an assassin, and, having no true loyalty to the Empire, quickly found other employers after its collapse.

I’m really pleased with this figure, and I hope to make Max soon as well. I significantly dremeled the Lyn Me head to remove the chin strap and sculpt the chin. I also drilled out a socket so that the head would fit the Black Widow ball joint.

Recipe:
Head- Lyn Me (Jabba The Hutt's Dancers) POTF
Body- Marvel Universe Black Widow Series 2, 2010 HASBRO
Belt- Tie Fighter Pilot (TVC)
Cape- Darth Vader

Max (rodian assassin)

Recipe:
Head- Doda Bodonawieedo (Jabba's Palace - The Power Of The Force, 1998)
Torso- Anakin Skywalker (TCW)
Arms- Loki (Marvel)
Belt- Padmé Amidala (Coruscant Attack)
Legs- Agen Kolar (ROTCC)
Satchel- Indiana Jones

I have a backstory ready but I can’t seem to copy and paste without getting an error message

Backstory and process:

Chatz “Max” Kseeboe  was a Rodian assassin who had an aptitude for poisoning his targets. Max’s main clients were those involved in politics who wanted their political adversaries eliminated. He had a penchant for Sabacc, and frequented cantinas in Coruscant’s lower levels. It was in one of these seedy establishments that he first encountered Aa’ Shachen. He quickly took interest in the young Twi’lek and decided to mentor her. Max was a very successful assassin, and was never convicted of murder. He was, however, eventually imprisoned for tax evasion because he wasn’t very good at managing his finances. 

I painted the armor on the Anakin torso so that the color better matched that of the loki arms. I also weathered the pants with bronze paint. Oddly, the Doda Bodonawieedo head was cast in brown despite being painted entirely green, so I had to mix the same color green to paint the base of the head after dremeling out the socket for the ball joint.

I like the way he looks too. I wonder what he would look like with some of that snap on clone armor from that figure years ago in the Saga Line. Might be overkill though.

Human Mercenary / Soldier

Head- X-Men Origins Wolverine, Comic Series
Upper Torso- Clone Trooper Sergeant (AOTC, TVC)
Legs and Lower Torso- GI Joe, specific figure unknown
Arms- Clone Scuba Trooper (CW, TLC)

I might choose to add a helmet at some point, but I'm running out of fodder and I don't have an extra helmet to customize at the moment. If anyone knows which GI Joe the legs are from, please let me know!
