Title: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on May 31, 2014, 12:08:38 PM
Hi folks. Ive been a member here and have enjoyed immensely viewing everyones creations and reading the forums. I thought it was about time I posted some of my own work. Ive been customizing mainly Star Wars action figures for about 5 years now. Most of my work is fairly simple. Kit bash jobs. But I do get inspired by everyone else so without any further ado...........

Ok time for a small update....finally. Here are two new customs that Ive been working on. First is a Nikto Morgukai super soldier from the Dark Horse Star Wars Republic comic book series. Im not quite done with him. Im considering adding some cortosis bracers and I havent decided on the look of his main weapon. The second is an Old Republic era Iktochi Jedi Consular. Im a huge SWTOR nut and Id love to see Hasbro or Bioware release more figures based on the game. In the meantime Ill concoct my own customs. Let me know what you think vadsab

Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs

Ok new custom time. Im still a die hard SWTOR player and one race that should definitely be added as a playable character option is the Togruta. Here is a Nar Shadda Togruta slicer on the run from an Exchange bounty hunter

Post by: bdc41866 on July 16, 2014, 06:41:23 PM
Ok folks pretty nice sized update this time. Finally had a couple quality days off from work (quiet time). If you ever need any inspiration, SWTOR is a great source as there are so many different character models and settings to use as a starting point. Also Ive been watching The Clone Wars on Netflix...great stuff there too.
In order we have-
A Clone Wars Jedi blademaster-----also took some inspiration from the SWTOR trailers
An Old Republic Jedi Knight with dual sabers
A Weequay Jedi Hunter with Cortosis blades and battle armor
And finally a New Republic Heavy Weapons Spectrooper
Enjoy!
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on July 16, 2014, 06:45:17 PM

Heres somthing Ive been working on for some time but havent quite gotten the way I want it to look just yet. Kaliyo Djannis, the Imperial Agent companion from SWTOR. She has so many looks so Ive tried to incorporate different elements. I have another version that uses Asajj Ventress and Mara Jade. Work in progress. Let me know what you think and any suggestions are welcome.

Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on January 07, 2015, 11:45:41 AM
I get busy! Great kit bashes though, are you going to provide back stories or are these just diorama fillers? I particularly like the figure with the Naboo helmet.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on January 08, 2015, 06:33:53 PM
 O0Thanks Tamer and Starchaser. Ive amassed a bunch of fodder over the holidays, and have been following every snippet of info about The Force Awakens, so the female was sort of inspired by Rey. The others are mainly army builders. Ive got tons of Jedi and Sith and want to try broadening my collection with characters from other professions. And new alien of course.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on February 02, 2015, 02:45:43 PM

Post by: I-am-Boba-Fett on July 06, 2015, 08:23:14 PM
Good looking custom figures but my favorite of them all is the Advozse Mercenary. Have you thought about doing a bit of black paint wash on his arms to better match the colors on his head? Great looking custom alien either way!

Great work man, I was just wondering how you made your "Old Republic Jedi Sentinel" double bladed lightsaber? Thanks!
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on July 16, 2015, 02:28:36 PM
Back in the good old days Hasbro was making chrome plated lightsaber hilts with removable blades. I used a Darth Maul hilt and replaced the red blades with Maces Windus purple one and a generic green one. If youve never read the awesome "I, Jedi" book featuring Corran Horn do yourself a favor. Its one of the Best EU books ever written. In it Corran Horn constructs a lightsaber with two different color crystals.

Love that Kel Dor sniper! What did you use for the torso armor on that figure? Almost reminds me of Commander Zod from the new Superman movie, am I correct? Giving me some great ideas for a sith Kel For figure I have planned in the making.. have so many spare Plo Koon figures it's not funny!

Keep up the awesome work!

Taking inspiration from one of my favorite cop shows of the 80's, I created this pair of Kel Dor Planetary Enforcement Detectives from Nar Shadaa. They investigate crimes dealing with the spice trade, slaving and illegal weapons trade. Their names are Kro Kett and Ricco Tubb. Corny I know but it was fun putiing these guys together.

Made a couple customs along the way. Here are Jaden Korr and Jaina Solo. My interpretations of the characters over a several year period. Hope you like and please feel free to leave feedback.

My thanks to you Mr Hemble. Made a couple of changes one of my recent customs, The Iktotchi mercenary. I added a skirt and a gunbelt in place of the snowtrooper skirt. It was a better fit, and more in keeping with the color scheme and theme of the figure. Enjoy.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on September 02, 2015, 07:01:38 PM
Wow, you've really been producing some excellent combinations. I particularly like the Kel Dor mercenaries and your Sinteen Sith. Keep up the good work.

Post by: bdc41866 on September 03, 2015, 02:24:05 PM

Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on September 17, 2015, 07:17:34 PM
Great update! I particularly like the Aqualish - she turned out really well. The use of the Bultar Swan torso gives me some great ideas for other customs. I might have to try my hand at a Jedi Sage as well.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on September 17, 2015, 08:12:13 PM
Ive got a few Bultar Swans. Took some Dremel work on the torso as the peg hole is very small. But I love the chest armor piece that comes with her figure.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on September 17, 2015, 09:39:53 PM
I completely agree about the chest armor.
Title: New Bounty Hunters

Ill be posting a few new bounty hunter kitbashes tonight. First up is this colorful character, Solitus Tyree. I am so enjoying my new Dremel. Took an old Shadows of the Empire Swoop Bike pilot, cut off the head dremelled it out and used it here. Colors worked out really well. More to come

Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Tamer on September 24, 2015, 03:05:17 AM
Found some time to post and comment on the front pages for these. I really like that first new bounty hunter, especially from the back. Normally I don't post photos from the back, but I love how you cover every angle when you put a new figure together. I am hoping to see some of this type of construction using some parts from the new TFA 5 POA Figures for our birthday challenge.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs

Thank you Mr Fett. New custom time. I have been playing a lot of SWTOR lately, leveling up several characters before The Fallen Empire update. Got inspired to do this Heavy Weapons Trooper. The McQuarrie concept figures are some of my all time favorites, and they really lend themselves to customizing. Enjoy!
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on October 05, 2015, 11:39:57 PM
I really like how the heavy gunner turned out. There is a great parts combination here. I particularly like how the cold weather "skirt" works to add some texture to the figure. Brilliant job!

Waxing nostalgic again, I went back and reread the Dark Horse Dark Times comics. Dass Jennir is a great character. Also watched some of the Rebels and Clone Wars episodes right before Order 66. So I created these two Order 66 survivors. Enjoy.

Post by: Starchaser on October 26, 2015, 11:16:34 PM
The Rebel troopers look good and the Mon Cal Sentinel turned out great! I love that you used the Old Republic era brighter colors (shades of brown does get a bit boring). What did you use for the cloak piece?
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on October 28, 2015, 10:54:29 AM
That's actually the chest piece from AkRev. Thanks Starchaser

Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on October 29, 2015, 09:52:33 PM
I like how the Dresselian armor works with the Advosze head. It's a really good combination. Mind if I borrow the recipe? Where does the bandolier come from?
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on October 30, 2015, 10:56:24 AM

Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on November 09, 2015, 10:34:38 PM
Sarco Plank turned out awesome!! What's the recipe - if you don't mind sharing. I like the parts combination on the bounty hunter too (Red Faction figures were a great little line and provide some really good fodder).
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on November 09, 2015, 10:55:24 PM
Lets see....the Sarco Plank was a mix of the 5 POA Sarco Plank head, a Clone Marine torso, Darth Vader upper thighs, Koffi Arana lowers legs, and an Anakin Skywalker cloak.

Seems to work. You can also add photos by using an online photo hosting service like photo bucket or imgur.com and then use the direct image code.

From there you just need to surround that image code with the tag [img][ /img] and it will load into the post reply. Please note I added a space to each one of those that isn't necessary in order to get em to post as bbc code is funny that way.

Great custom updates! I'll be curious to see what you come up with for the Nautolan's helmet. The RPG Jedi project should be both fun and challenging. Look forward to seeing how it turns out.

Do you remember the Clone Wars Cartoon where the MonCals are fighting the Quarren and Kit Fisto jumps in the water and fights alongside the Clones? I could seriously envision him in armor like this. It would have been much cooler. That or a squad of his species fighting with him. Man, wouldn't this make for an awesome new REBELS episode! Off to share.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: bdc41866 on February 17, 2016, 08:44:00 PM
Tamer, I watched that 3 episode arc from Clone Wars again today with the Mon Cals and the Quarren. Epic. You may remember I was working on a project making customs of some of the Force and Destiny RPG characters. I believe this Kel Dors name is Tarast Voon. Im pretty pleased with how he turned out. Now on to the female Jedi. Anyone have an idea as to what race she might be?
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs

Cool looking Kel Dor custom figure!
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Tamer on February 18, 2016, 03:35:55 AM
I like him. Off to share.

I was actually talking about the first version of Clone Wars by Tartovsky or however you spell the name. The one that was more cartoon than anime. I can just remember Kit Fisto jumping off a Republic Cruiser into the water and swimming with Scuba Clones. Your version would have looked tougher and been more armor like we saw the other Jedi Generals.

Post by: bdc41866 on February 18, 2016, 08:41:49 PM

Something Ive been wanting to do is more alien Jedi...from different eras. This is a Stennes Shifter Jedi Knight, from the Republic era. I swapped out his hands for an armored look, borrowing them from a Clone Wars Commander Cody, and then used a Naboo Starfighter pilots cloak to better match the colors. More to come

Just finished watching the Onderon story arc from Clone Wars. Also noticed that Agent Kallus confessed to Zeb that it was on Onderon where he battled the Lasaat Guardsman and received his trademark rifle. They mentioned Saw Guerrera was still leading the resistance against the Imperials. So heres my take on an Onderon resistance fighter. More to come

Great set of customs. The Onderon resistance trooper turned out really well. Good job on the Mon Cal ranger. I like the parts combination on the bounty hunter, it works well together as a piecemeal armor combination. Looking forward to the next update.

Post by: bdc41866 on March 13, 2016, 01:08:09 PM
My thanks Tamer and Starchaser. Im hoping Hasbro will see the need for more articulated figures for the Rogue One movie, seeing as how it will be a true war film/action movie. Plenty of GI Joe styled bodies Im sure they could use. That being said, here is a kitbash Rebel engineer. Anyone know where I could find 3 3/4" scale Star Wars transfers?

Nice. Off to share this one too.

As for decals, eBay has an extensive use of stickers and decals if you can sift through the initial stuff and find what you want. I will see what I can find as I have been wanting to add some of these sellers to our eBay Sellers list as a resource.

This is sort of an Expanded Universe custom idea.....Im sure the Republic had several Maximum Security prisons/penitentiaries that held the worst scum in the galaxy...perhaps either captured by the Jedi or Coruscant police.

Looks like a good start to me. :) Maybe it's because of the mockup, my only suggestion would be to shorten the neck a bit so that the helmet rests on the shoulders.

For those of you that play SWTOR (or Star Wars Knights of The Fallen Empire), you might like this guy. My version of a Bala D'ur bounty hunter. The Bala D'ur are a Gen Dai faction (same race as Durge) of the White Maw pirates on the planet Hoth. Fairly easy head swap. This is a Husk body with a Chitauri head, and some fodder weapons...more to come.

Ive been playing around with my GI Joe fodder to see if I could make more military themed kitbashes. Getting ready for Rogue One. Here is an Imperial Urban Combat trooper....possibly part of a gravtank crew or a sapper. Cobra Viper body with Imp armor and helmet. More to come...

Not too shabby.
Title: Re: Bigpadawans customs
Post by: Starchaser on June 16, 2016, 02:36:19 PM
That combination works well! Give him a riot control baton and shield (in black and gray) and you've got an urban assault specialist:) Like the idea of a gravtank. If he were a sapper, there should be other equipment for the engineering work (though the design would work well for that role, too).

Title: Bounty hunter Moxin Tark
Post by: bdc41866 on June 17, 2016, 06:56:56 PM
Ok here is a WIP of my version of Moxin Tark, a bounty hunter from the West End Games sourcebooks. He modeled his armor after the Sun Guards of Thyrsus. a mercenary army unit that became a Sith cult under the control of Darth Sidious. . They took their armor designs from the Death Watch and others.

Finished up this two man commando team. Carth and Treysinda Panteer met shortly before the start of the Rebellion. They were members of the House Guard for House Panteer on Alderaan, and served alongside other royal protectors. They fell in love and married not long after. They decided to join Princess Leia's group of Rebel freedom fighters, and were on Dantooine when Alderaan was destroyed.

Yep Foxtrot they looked a little big to me too....Might try a different lower body. Anyway, heres a Republic Desert Ops/Urban Ops trooper. I got a couple sets of waterslide decals from Bad Mother customs (awesome for both 3 3/4" and 6" scales), and covered up the Cobra sigil on the armored vest with a Republic one and voila. More to come....

Nice set of updates. The Sith are fun, but I particularly your Klatooinian bounty hunter. I like the katana on the back look (even though in real life it's very impractical). He's a tough customer and fits nicely into the bounty hunter world.

Thanks Star Chaser. I wanted to post a couple of pics of a character design for a Sith Lord that I keep coming back to. I think I have all the parts. Would need to make some modifications to some GI Joe armor and a Deaths Head figure that I have but could possibly work. Also added a female Kel Dor Jedi Knight kitbash.
