Clonetroopr shares his 50th Custom here at ISY!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, February 24 2017
"I didn't realize this marks my 50th custom here on Imperial Shipyards! Shocking to think it's been so long.

Enjoy :) The design is originally from the Revenge of the Sith videogame for the PS2 back in the day (reference photo is from the Battlefront 2 mod)

Painted up a green Clone Commander from the ROTS line in 501st colors, removed the pauldron, added the antennae, and made a custom rifle."

What a great accomplishment on both the fiftieth custom posting and the figure itself. Nice work!

"Hey Mates, Here's a new sculpted I did of the Star Wars Character Darth Sion. This version is from the Force Unleashed DLC. I used a shirtless stormshadow torso and the gi joe movie firefly head to sculpt on. Let me know what you guys think of him. I'm also including some pics of my un-named Female Twilek Sith from the Star wars fallen empire trailer.

Darth Sion:

Auction: Link to Sion

Un-named TOR Female Sith:

Auction: Link to Female Sith"

Now that is a great way to introduce yourself!

Blizzard Forces shares a new Rogue One Vintage Cardback...

"Well, I'm currently really motivated to continue, so here's the next one, a TIE Fighter pilot. Repainted a few details on him, especially the chest box and the helmet markings (to match the pic better)..."

Wow, I so wish we could get the regular Hasbro Line back to this!

Ron Hembling is back with a Jawa Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, February 24 2017
"Hi All,

This Jawa is for the same client that I'm doing the AT-AT foot for.


Jawa - has a body from an old Madelman figure I got off ebay and I removed the lower legs and added boots from a old 6" figure I had in the parts box.

The head was from an old Call of duty WW2 figure and I cut the nose and ears off then I used thin lining model tape and wrapped it around the head and boots.

Once the tape was done I then used tissue paper and attached it to the head and boots using watered down PVA glue. The eyes are two elbow pins I took of an old arm that I had in the bits box.

The robe was from the Hasbro 6" Obi Wan Kenobi and I cut it down and repainted it and the bandolier weapon holsetr and belt are pieces of leather. The bandolier pouches are from the Bandai Sandtrooper shoulder ammo puuch and the rest of the pouches are from the Bandai Sandtrooper and other old figures.

The weapons are pieces of Bandai Sandtrooper weapons cut and attached to the desired look and the power supply is from the Bandai Deathtrooper and the connector/wire at the bottom the power supply is from a 1/6th scale WW2 German head set.

Base - is from Bandai with balsa wood sides and the sand is a mix of spakfilla/sand/paint and spread over the base and the Protocol Droid is the Bandai C3PO left over parts.


It looks pretty nice to me!

Rezakai is back with new fan fiction!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, February 22 2017
"The blue hyperspace tunnel surrounding Lieutenant Klavine's A-Wing washed his control panels in a light blue hue. He had been familiar with seeing the blue streaking light since he started piloting. He often thought during these quiet moments about after the civil war was over, how he would return to his mother and explain what he had done and if his father would even stand to look at him or turn on him for being a traitor. Those bothering thoughts were often washed away like mud in a river when he entered hyperspace. Away from the politics of it all, he sat alone in the cockpit of his A-Wing awaiting the tunnel to dissipate and the blackness of space dotted with the stars of a tens of thousands of systems full his view."

That is just a taste folks!

Mandalore25 is back with some Sith Warriors!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, February 22 2017
"Falling behind again, I just get distracted, nearly forgot to vote next custom challenge even. Anyway, lets start with these SWTOR Sith Warriors. Going to make a small production of these to supply multiples for those interested, but it tops out at 5 of them. Would have liked to change the chest piece when character accuracy is very important to me, but the figure has a very odd shaped torso, I tried switching it with a few others, but they just didn't look right. On the bright side it cuts the material cost making them cheaper for those interested.

If anyone is interested they're listed here:"

They look pretty daggone sinister to me!

I really do like the look of these!

"Cameras are rolling on the adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee; principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20 at Pinewood Studios, London.

The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca."

Heavily dominated by the six inch vintage line up these are sure to please. One thing to be aware of:

"Please note, the Star Wars Black Series 40th Anniversary R5-D4 figure is not an Entertainment Earth exclusive, it is a Game Stop exclusive."

Now you know! And can plan to get all these great Vintage Six Inch Figures. Feel free to share the images in all their high resolution glory!
