awesome job Ron. Fantastic work with the whole thing. Your diorama pieces never cease to inspire. I've never been a fan of taking the action figure and making a static piece out of them, as I want to be able to "play" with my toys, IE: pose them and move them. But I have thought about doing small dios like this as set pieces which my figures can be posed into for display... and every time I see one of your pieces I want to revisit that idea.Anyway, I picked up parts for my project yesterday. I went to target, 2 walgreens, walmart and TRU.... I had no real project in mind and was looking for inspiration as I went... I found a tie pilot at walgreens but didn't want to use it for this project.... I almost bought a han to do something with, even sat on my phone at TRU for a while trying to research ideas to do with it (ESB han? ROTJ endor han?... boring!)... then in a stroke of last second looking I found a clone trooper. I grabbed it with a brilliant thought... to re-visit a past project that I never fully completed........ I will leave you with that for now, but I will say, that this figure will be meant for a vehicle I have already created
I think I'll join in on this..might as well since Im just starting the figure anyway...never been in one of these contests..do I need to post progress pics here? or just in my thread?
For me, the beauty in customizing is the process, not the end result... so I encourage everyone to take WIP pictures showing how things come together! (This is also good practice for anyone who wants to reflect on the process

(This is also good practice for anyone who wants to reflect on the process I definitely appreciate the WIPs as much as the end results. Keep'm'comin.Cant help much with sculpting pointers, I'm afraid. I can tell when I'm doing something right, but 99% of the time I feel like I may as well be whacking my material with a hammer.I've seen what you can do. Keep working it. You'll see your form eventually.
That It does, buddy.Would you believe I'm inspired?
Got heads and helmets already casting, just haven't shown em yet.I do want to do some mash ups with those devin but have a couple of conventional conversions to make for the helmeted heads first.One is supposed to be for this shindig.When I first seen you working on that cowl for your driver head I thought "crap, he's doing the same thing"
