Title: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on December 31, 2014, 02:08:35 PM
I'll end the year with a couple of posts of custom figures. It's been something I've wanted to do for some time.

This is my version of the Mythos Obi-Wan Kenobi figure. Based it off some of the first pix that were revealed.

The second is a Luke Skywalker figure based on Splinter of the Mind's Eye.

Here's a couple of more.

This is a custom Gran I made for a diorama for my SW club's diorama contest. I modeled him after an Old West snake oil salesman, in particular the guy in The Outlaw Josey Wales. If you've seen the movie, you know who I'm talking about. He's a simple repaint but in bright colors.

And the Gran in action.

A Republic Commando in black armor. Used one of the Scorch bodies and added a generic clone head

And last for today are a generic mercenary and a couple of generic Clone Wars Jedi.

The merc's torso is the removable armor Jango Fett, the Hoth Rebel soldier head, and the legs are the cantina Brainiac figure.

Had a couple of extra CW figure bodies and just swapped heads. The clone Jedi is a little bit of a repaint.

Nice update. I love the Outlaw Josie Wales. I can remember him spitting on that dude and then pushing him into the manure when recognizes Josie in town. Great movie, great custom. Off to share on the front page.

I like the Gran too.

Nice kitbashing on Luke too.
Splinter of the Mind's Eye?!?. 
Wow, the first EU book.  I didnt think anyone remembered that.  Alan Dean Foster wrote that between episodes 4 & 5.  Canon quickly rendered a decent novel obsolete.

What a way to start off the new year! On the front page! Thanks, Tamer.

I'm old enough to remember when Splinter of the Mind's Eye first came out, Sjefke. I used the comic adaptations for visual inspiration. It's a storyline I've always enjoyed.

Post by: OC47150 on January 02, 2015, 06:17:12 PM
A few more for the weekend.

An Ithorian senator. Used Hammerhead's head, hands and feet on a ROTS Mon Cal senator.

A generic Jabba's guard is next. I created him for another contest.

My SW club, the Kentucky Star Wars Collectors Club, has had a table at the Lexington (KY) Comic and Toy Show for the last few years, and I try to create a unique custom for the show. This one was from two years ago.  It's a repaint of the AOTC  Colman Trebor figure.

Annikin Starkiller from The Star Wars. Used the ceremonial Luke body and a Hobbit Legalos head.

A blind Jedi. I was lucky enough to find the GI Joe Retaliation blind master figure. I mixed the Mace Windu and the Eeth Koth body to create a different Jedi body.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on January 02, 2015, 06:35:43 PM
This is my version of an Episode 7 Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker. I used one of the TPM vintage Obi-Wan body's and a Luke head from one of the comic two-packs and aged him.

These last pix are some of my favorites. I'd been wanting to create these customs for a while but thought simply painting them wouldn't do. So this summer I came across the Men in Black 3 figures at Tuesday Morning, and the rest is history. I took first place in my club's customs contest with the group. The weapons are from various GI Joe figures.

I call them the New Jedi Order.

Nice job on these customs. The MIB homage is pretty great. I really liked that you went back to Splinter of the Mind's Eye for a version of Luke. I would have loved to see Kenner (or Hasbro in the EU) do a couple of figures from that story - especially Hin and Kee.

Congrats on the win.  I like them too.  I also picked up a couple of MIBs at TM in case I ever found a head that looked like Phil Coulson of SHIELD.  The Ithorian is great too.

Post by: OC47150 on March 13, 2015, 04:29:26 PM
My club has two events, a comic/toy show and a display at the local library, for the next two weekends. I created a couple of new customs for the shows.

Remember in the old Marvel SW comics Luke ran around most of the time in his farmboy outfit? A buddy and I joked that he probably didn't have time to shop for new duds. I created this one based on an old Marvel pix I saw. Sorry about the quality of the pix. I might repost a better one later.

I used the ceremonial Luke body, swapped the head to be more ANH-ish, and painted the jacket.

This next one is a Bail Organa before ANH. Used the Bespin guard body, the Biggs cape and a standard Bail head. I dry-brushed white paint around the temples and goatee just to age him a bit.

The final is an Angry Birds send-up. I took the Emperor Pig and placed it on an Emperor's body and repainted it black. Been wanting to do that one for a while.

I will post a few more in the coming weeks.

Post by: OC47150 on March 29, 2015, 05:33:25 PM
A couple of customs to end the weekend.

A younger version of Qui-Gon. Straight repaint: darkened the hair and gave his robes a different color.

A Naboo pilot with the jacket. I used the POTF2 Endor Han cloak and painted it orange.

I created this one for a comic show last year. Took one of the POTF2 Obi-Wan's and gave him the old '70s colors.

Couple of more customs.

A CW Republic medical officer. Used the ROTS Tarkin and painted him white.

A post-ROTS Republic officer. Again, used the ROTS Tarkin and put a clone head on it.

One of my first customs was a Weequay Jedi. Used one of the TPM Qui-Gon's body and swapped heads.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on April 05, 2015, 04:02:10 PM
A pair of Nikto Jedi. Used the AOTC Nikto figures but removed the cloaks.

Saw these Doctor Who figures at Walgreens at Christmastime, but couldn't bring myself to pay $10. They were clearance out in the last month, so I picked up a couple.

The first one is Doctor Dooku. I might paint his vest, just to add some more color. The second one is Professor Obi-Wan. I used the hat and attaché case form the Indiana Jones Last Crusade line's Henry Jones to make Obi-Wan look a little more academic. 
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on April 05, 2015, 04:09:07 PM
My final pix are entries for another contest I entered in the last week. The theme was bounty hunters. For the human, I used a Garindan body and the Baron Fel head from the comic two-pack, and just painted. The Ithorian's waist was swapped out; I used the waist from the Bothan because of the molded holster. The rest is a repaint. Nothing done to the massif.

I have a few things in the works but don't know if I'll have anything done before going to Celebration.

My SW club is having its annual fund-raising auction this weekend, and I came up with a couple of custom figures to contribute.

The first is a simple repaint of a Gonk droid. I've seen other customs of Gonk droids in bright colors and thought they looked good.

I attended a con earlier this year and came across this Army of Darkness action figure set. The swords and gear gave me the inspiration to take a spare Clone Wars Obi-Wan and turn him into a Middle Ages/Templar-style knight.

It's funny how an idea just clicks when you find the right accessories. I wanted to add a plume to the helmet, but haven't found the right material. A feather is too big.

I have a second knight in the works, but he'll have a shield.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on July 23, 2015, 05:29:50 PM
A couple more customs.

This one is another figure for my club's auction this weekend. It's a 'what if' figure. What if the events in the Phantom Menace never took place, and Qui-Gon Jinn lived for many years? My interpretation of what an elder Qui-Gonn would look like. Just a simple repaint of a PM Qui-Gon.

One of my favorite Clone Wars comic storylines was the battle of Jabiim, in particular when the padawans were on their own and have to fight. This is an Aqualish Jedi who fought in the battle. Used a ROTS Mace Windu body.

My version of Jedi Jacen Solo. Used a ROTS Obi-Wan Kenobi body and one of the Narnia kids' heads.

This is one of my favorites. It's Gnost Dural, a Jedi from the SW: Old Republic Annihilation novel. Used all CW body parts for this figure.

I'll post a few more pix over the weekend.

Post by: OC47150 on August 09, 2015, 04:19:39 PM
A couple of more customs.

Mara Jade Skywalker. Used the Mara head from one of the comic 2-packs and the Adi Gallia body.

A Bothan Jedi. I used a Ki-Adi Mundi body and the Bothan head from the comic 2-pack.

The last is a creation for another customs contest. Kasia 'Kassie' Sainio of Alderaan is an intelligence operative working for the Rebel Militia. She has the uncanny ability to blend into whatever environment she finds herself in, as if she's a native. This skill has helped her collect vital information for the Militia...and stay alive while working undercover.

Recipe:
* Head: Marvel Scarlett Witch
Torso: Bultar Swan from the comic two-pack
Legs: ROTS Aayla Secura
Vest: Rebel trooper from the comic two-pack

Long overdue for posting some more customs. Made the time to take some pix today and here are some of the results.

First up are two generic Jedi, a male and a female. For the male, I used an Obi-Wan body, the arms from Talon Kaarde and the head is from one of the Target two-packs.

I used a TPM Adi Galia body and the Scarlet Witch head for the female Jedi. Added a head post for the SW's head to work.

The next one is an Imperial Security Bureau officer. Used the Imp body from a comic two-pack with Luke in disguise, a head from an extra Imp officer and repainted accordingly.

Post by: OC47150 on May 30, 2016, 11:24:16 AM
I had fun doing a series of different Obi-Wan figures last year.

First up, Obi-Wan Commando. An OW head on a GI Joe Shipwreck body, and accessories.

Swashbuckling Obi-Wan. An OW head on a Pirates of the Caribbean figure.

Miami Vice Obi-Wan. OW head on a Men in Black 3 body (think it's one of the baddies.) Painted him in bright colors. This figure won first in my club's customs contest last year.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on May 30, 2016, 11:31:34 AM
I'm a fan of the Walking Dead, so I had to put a SW spin on it. Here's Obi-Wan in a zombie-filled world. I used a GI Joe Firefly figure and the crossbow from Zartan for this creation.

I previously made a Templar Knight Obi-Wan. I made a second one, but with a different paint scheme and a cape. The swords are from an Army of Darkness playset.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on May 30, 2016, 11:36:13 AM
Captain Ben Kenobi of the Special Operations Executive. OB head on an Indy Jones body. The shirt is painted a light blue.

Finally, I had these extra Pirates of the Caribbean parts. So I created Captain Jack Jedi. Used a spare ROTS Obi-Wan body, shaved down the pouches so Jack's belt could fit over the torso. And painted in POTC bright colors. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I have a few more pix to post in the next week or so.

Post by: OC47150 on July 29, 2016, 04:47:26 PM
A few more customs to show off.

A post-ROTS Bail Organa. Repainted a Bespin guard body and the cape from the casual Biggs Darklighter for a little flair. Also added a little grey to Bail's temples.

This is what when the Star Wars and SHIELD universes collide. A bad a$$ Mace.

I came across the rough Bad Batch episodes from the Clone Wars, and really liked Hunter, the leader of the group. I used one of the TRU exclusive stealth ops clone trooper body's and the head from the GI Joe Spirit figure. Tried to match the paint scheme as much as I possibly could based on the pix.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on July 29, 2016, 04:52:31 PM
Another shot of Hunter from Bad Batch.

Read the SW Dark Forces trilogy the other year. In one of the books there was the mention of an Imp intel officer working deep undercover as a mercenary. i used the Endor Rebel body and a clone trooper head. The beret and hard vest are from Marauder. All have been dirtied up.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on July 29, 2016, 05:07:45 PM
Last pix are non-SW related.

i like the TV show The Last Ship, and Tex was one of my favorite characters. (Where the heck is he this season?) For my version of Tex, I used the GI Joe Shipwreck body. Don't ask me where the head came from; I got it in a trade from a fellow customizer and thought it was approprite.

I've seen The Hurt Locker several times, but it was during a recent viewing that the British private contractor scene caught my eye. Again, I used the Shipwreck figure, and a heavily painted Dastan head from the Prince of Persia toyline. The Jedi cloak has been faded with bleach and sunlight, and then dirtied up. The assault vest was also painted a light tan.

Thanks.

The cloak started off either as Obi-Wan or Mace Windu's robe. The hood was removed, and I don't think I let it soak too long in the bleach/water solution and set in the sun.

Long overdue for an update. The holidays are over and I'm getting my custom materials out of storage.

Here are pix of items I did last fall. Have several new customs in the pipeline.

First up is a Mando. Came across this GI Joe head (it's from the cancelled Jurassic Park line) at a toy show and knew it would be perfect for a Mando. He just looks like a rough customer with the face tattoo. The backpack is from a Falcon figure.

Next is a generic Republic Commando. The figure was the plain white commando that came in the comic two-pack. I added the generic clone head, and painted it. The paint scheme resembles Sev.
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on January 29, 2017, 05:39:05 PM
Before Rogue One, I made a generic Rebel commando based on pictures from magazines and the internet. He looks like he's suited more for fighting in the desert than Scarif. I used the Prune Face body. The head is a GI Joe. The coat is Endor Han's trench coat bleached to a lighter color.

Last summer/fall, the website did a contest for a heavy AT-AT gunner. I submitted an entry but wasn't completely happy with it. This is my original idea. Used the Commander Barc helmet, and he's carrying one of the rotary laser rifles. 
Title: Re: OC47150's creations
Post by: OC47150 on January 29, 2017, 05:45:43 PM
Final customs are non-SW.

Came across one of the Marvel figures at the discount store. Thought he'd make a KOTOR Jedi but after studying him more, thought he'd make a better gladiator. Painted the legs flesh color. The Chest plate and helmet were painted bronze; the shoulder guard, dry-brushed bronze, is from one of the GI Joe Iron Grenadier figures. Made a skirt out of brown felt, and found the perfect sword in my junk drawer. His shield is from Captain America, painted bronze.

The last is my homage to the GI Joe Adventure from the early 70s. He's a big game hunter. Used the GI Joe Kwinn body, and painted the shirt a light green. (I added a little darker green paint under the armpits and down the spine to show he's been sweating.) The head is from one of the Elite Force figures. The hat is from GI Joe Recondo, and the bandana from Marauder.

More to come in the next few weeks. Promise.  ;D

Post by: OC47150 on February 03, 2017, 06:09:22 PM
Thanks. Really liked how the helmet worked for him.

Here's a quick one for the weekend. One of my favorite Dark Horse storylines was the battle of Jabiim, in particular the Padawan Pack. These are padawans who'd lost their masters, yet continued to fight. The one character that always stood out for me was Vaabesh, the Gand Jedi.

I used a Zuckuss head and hands on a Mace Windu body. The belt is from a Jango Fett, and the bandoleer is from the Vilmarh Grahrk figure. The legs and Jedi robe have been splashed with mud-like brown paint.

Have a few more figures that I need to photograph over the weekend.

I really like your focus on Comics and Expanded Universe! A Republic Commando with removable helmet is a great idea! I think I've seen one by Clonehead, too!
Also the Mando looks aweome! I agree with the head and the backpack looks extremely well on your Mando custom! Keep up the great work! You seem to be very hard-working on your projects!

Thanks. Here's an older Republic commando I did. Kinda a covert/special ops commando.

A couple more customs.

A Kanan Jarrus Jedi figure if he served during the Clone Wars.  The Kanan head fits nicely on the CW Obi-Wan figure, and a little paint makes him a little different.

A super articulated FO stormie Finn. This is one Hasbro should've gave us, IMO.

Post by: OC47150 on February 05, 2017, 06:15:06 PM
In the Mos Eisley street scene, when Luke, Obi-Wan and the droids are rolling into town, there's a non-descript guy just walking down the street. He intrigued me. Used a farm boy Luke figure, repainted the legs, and made a vest out of brown felt. May need to work on the vest a little more.

Finally, a sith acolyte. Used a Palpatine body; the sash is from a Maul figure. The head is a Joe Zartan painted two shades of grey to look sinister. The cowl is from a Kylo Ren figure.

I have a few more figures in various stages. Will post them in the coming weeks.

I haven't commented much lately (actually not at all in several weeks), so I'm just catching up. You have done a great job with all these updates.  I particularly like the Gand Jedi and the use of JP head for a tattooed Mando (great idea!). Keep it up. Oh, and I like the generic desert rat - we need more filler figures.

I like your latest update. Especially the Republic Commando looks awesome.
I can't wait to see more.

First up tonight is a SA Kanan Jarus in stormtrooper disguise. Bought a spare Kanan on sale and had an extra stormie lying around so I put both to use.

This next one I tossed together just last night. I won't take credit for the ideas; I saw someone else customize this figure recently and it gave me the idea. I attended a toy show earlier this month and found a spare Dash in the $1 box and used one of my extra Rebel pilots to make Dash Rendar, Rebel pilot at the battle of Hoth.

The next two are straight repaints, but I wanted to do something different. So I used bright colors and say they served during the Old Republic.

I still have a little touching up on this last Jedi. I was going to use a different head but came across this CW comic book at home, and it fell into place. Trying to get him a green Jedi cloak. Dying one of the dark brown robes with green Rit dye isn't working.

A couple of Rogue One customs for a Friday.

The first one is a Rebel commando I created for a customs contest on another sight. Sgt. Zayne Dremine is a pathfinder whose used to being first-in, last out on Rebellion missions. When he heard about the Scarif mission, he immediately volunteered even though he knew it was a suicide mission.

When this contest was first announced, I consulted the RO Visual Guide and trading cards, etc... for inspiration. After the research, I kept coming back to my original idea based on a WWII British paratrooper/commando. Someone who was rough and tumble.

Recipe: I used the arctic combat Snake Eyes with the hood removed. The torso is painted and dry-brushed multiple colors of green, brown and tan. Wanted to capture the look of the British Dennison smock. The legs are painted/dry-brushed brown and tan.

The head, helmet, rifle and backpack are from the Endor Rebel commando that came with the '07 tin set. Love the head sculpt, and couldn't find another that captured the essence of RO as well as this one.

The bandoleer is from IG-88.

The mines tucked under his arm are from a GI Joe set.

A pair of Rebel pilots. Used the head from the Marvel Agent 13/Sharon Carter on a spare female Rebel pilot body, and random Marvel head on a Dutch Vander figure. I dry-brushed their uniforms because the pictures I saw in the Visual Guide and trading cards had them a little dirty.

In the Jedha marketplace, a pair of Imperial officers are spotted walking among the booths. I used a spare Veers head on a Red Skull body, and painted the trenchcoat grey.

I still want to create one of Saw Guerra's crew but haven't gotten around to it. Have a couple of ideas but nothing's really clicked yet.

A couple of quick ones before I head off for Celebration.

Mara Jade as the Emperor's Hand. I've enjoyed the mystery surrounding this concept. Used the Black Widow body, and the Mara Jade head and gun belt from the comic 2-pack. Never have cared for the 70s Farrah Fawcett-style hair on the BS Mara. The cloak is from the vintage Prune Face.

Last is Ki-Adi Mundi in Clone Wars armor. Found a Ki-Adi at a toy show recently, and I have extra CW Obi-Wan bodies lying around. Did a little repaint and there you go.

Hoping to find some good custom fodder at Celebration!

Great updates. I like the idea of the black widow body for the Mara Jade Emperor's Hand.  I really like how the green/Dass Jennir custom turned out, he looks really good.

Thanks. I know a lot of the reference shots had Mara in a sleeveless outfit but I liked the full bodysuit better.

I had two nice warm, sunny days so I bleached a Jedi robe to a lighter shade of brown and am dying it green. Once it's done I will add it to Dass Jennir.

I couldn't let Star Wars Day pass without posting at least one custom. I created this figure a couple of years ago, pays homage to the Death Star/Death Squad commander.

Have some other stuff in the works.

As promised, here's a few of my creations.

First up is Obi-Wan Kenobi. I found an old vintage Ben Kenobi figure in the loose bin at the local comic shop and repainted it in the POTF2 colors. The cape is brown felt. I had fun fixing him up.

Next up is a Mando. I was inspired either by a cosplayer at Celebration or just surfing on the net. Thought the brown and tan color combo was different. The rifle is from the POTF2 AT-ST driver, and the cape is from an older GI Joe. Don't remember where I picked up the head.

For my club's dio contest, I created the Jedha marketplace dio. Needed some of Saw Gerrera's partisans, so I created some.

Used the EVO stormie helmet on a repainted Bane Malar figure. I dyed a Naboo pilot's coat wine-colored.

The third partisan is a combo of the ROTLA Cairo swordsman and thug.

The blue partisan is a Tatooine Luke with a TFA Unkar's thug's head. He's wearing a blue-dyed tusken raider robe.

Thank you.

I have to retake pictures of a couple of customs; they didn't turn out too well.

Putting the finishing touches on my first customs of 2018. Will share those pics soon.

Good to see you back - love the kitbashing:) I really like these updates. The Partisans look like they would fit right into Jedha. The Mando turned out really well, the browns work and the fur cape is a great addition (I might have to borrow that idea for a figure I'm working on). Kudos!

Nice update.
The "desert" Mando looks really cool.
The Jedha Partisans are great as well. Nice mix of parts.
