Custom Action Figures (http://www.keithpaquette.com/kapscustomuniverse/news.html)

Has anyone ever heard of this being done before? I hadn't, and this looks incredibly cool!

Anyone here ever done anything like this?

Yeah, I had bought a million action figures from TPM that I was going to mess with and customize, and I bought some sculpy. I was going to make some custom Indiana Jones figures too. But I never got around to it. Maybe I will in the future, who knows.

There was an article about custom made action figures in the insider once, some looked pretty good.

All I remember is hearing something about burnt bodies of Beru and Owen. Not hard to achieve.

Well in the article they talked mostly about figures that hadn't been released officially (yet) and fans made them out of other figures. (also using non SW action figures)

Ya, at Comic-Con I saw a custom Jaina Solo with a lightsaber and a blaster in an X-Wing flight suit. It was awesome. It was made by the people at www.echobasetoys.com (http://www.echobasetoys.com).

Way back before Phantom Menace came out I did a couple versions of an Anakin concept I had...

These are the only shots I have of it at the moment... a couple of scans from early '99 of "Anakin in Jawa disguise"... the goggles are to give him yellow eyes ... and a small 3.75" scale version with a blaster and no goggles (a kid on tatooine gets bored and dressing up like a jawa and sneaking around might have been cool)

Endover, those troopers you made are pretty nifty.

I like the Jawa Disguise Anakin figures, those are awesome. Where did you get the idea that he would dress up as a Jawa? I'm not saying it's a bad idea (it's cool) but where did the notion come from?

Uh... when I made those it was before Ep1 came out and I was just thinking that a kid on Tatooine would get bored and go find a way to amuse himself and since he&#39;s about the right height and he&#39;s a crafty kid (so to speak) I thought it could be plausable... sort of a EU type thing... style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bigsmile.gif
Glad you liked em
