Ironlightsaber Customs

IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL043.jpg)




It's been over year since I posted any images of my custom figs so I figure it's about time to post some more. Some were posted before, but I included them so all my mods would appear in a single thread. I just got this camera and it really doesn't do the figs justice but I figure some pics are better than no pics at all. I hope you enjoy.

"Admiral Ackbar" was one of my first mods I ever made and I got 4 stitches in my thumb making him. The exacto knife went right through the plastic and down to the bone in my thumb. You might be able to tell which mods were made while I had stitches :P. I made "Bespin Han" as a stand-in fig for nimzomitch until he pulled a RS Han. It was made from a Naboo Soldier and is rather blocky because it was only meant to be a stand in piece. The "Dead Rebel" was made by cutting up a Rebel Trooper, repositioning the pieces and gluing them back to the base.

These two E-Web Blasters are not mods but were made from scratch. I used plastic pieces left over from models, bits of metal, half of a Gonk Power Droid and some Sculpey to create them. I also made stat cards for it and other items that I hope to post for others to use. The stats and rules cards are from the Ultimate Mission books, except the rules on jumping which is a mix of all the different UM rules cleaned up into one.


IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL003.jpg)

Here are some modded "Scout Troopers-Running Toward the Fight". I just cut them at the waist, rotated them a little, glued it and then sculpted the waist to look correct. The arms were cut and pinned as well. The "Dead Trooper" fig was made like the above "Dead Rebel".


IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL004.jpg)

These are my modded Imperial Officers-"Death Star Officer" was made from an Imperial Officer body with a Rebel Trooper head. "Imperial Officer-Being Choked" was made the body of the above mentioned Rebel Trooper with an Imperial Officer's head. "Imperial Officer-At Attention" was made from Tarkin's body with an Imperial officer's head. Tarkin's head was used for a different mod that you'll see later on.


IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL005.jpg)

This is a "Twi'lik Sith" with a couple of droid friends from the Death Star. The body of the "Twi'lik Sith" was made from a Klatooninian Enforcer with the head of a Twi'lik Scoundrel. I gave him two lightsabers and Sith tattoos on his lekku to add some personality. "The Death Star Droid" is just an R2 repainted to look like the droid found on the Second DeathStar and the "Interrogation Droid" was made completely from Sculpey. I included the front of the stat card I made for reference.


IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL006.jpg)

Here's my "Darth Vader-Who's Your Daddy?". The fig was made from RS Darth Vader-Dark Jedi. The scene it's from is still one of the best in all movies. I know that his lightsaber was off when he held his hand out to Luke but I decided to keep it on for the mini.


IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL007.jpg)

These are a couple of modded Tuskens. The two with staffs were cut, adjusted, pinned and sculpted into different poses. The Tusken on the Bantha and the Tusken on the left were cut at the waist and switched. I've seen that other people have done this switch as well; it's quite simple to do and I highly recommend it.


IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/IL008.jpg)

The "Oola-Doomed Dancer" was a Twi'lek Bodygaurd that was completely cut apart at all the joints, pinned and readjusted. I used the staff for the chain and positioned it to look like Jabba was pulling on it. "Bib Fortuna" was a Twi'lek Scoundrel and I hope that WOTC will make one with a CE that improves Jabba. "Boba Fett" was a CS Clone Trooper that I made as a stand-in until I finally got one (I ended up having to buy it).

I played SpaceHulk which is in the same realm

Yeah, a really fun realm.
I am still waiting for Games Workshop to come to it's senses and do a rerelease...
Plus, the tiles are useful for SWM too ;)

Oh, and as usual- Great Customs :D
How do you make ur lightsabers?
bumping because the world needs to see this thread

i loveeee the yoda owning the clone trooper! and all of those are amazing, keep it up man!
i just found this thread today and i am suuuuppper impressed with every single one of your miniatures (especially the greiveous) and i was wondering how long on average does it take to make a mini of that awsomness?
my favorite minis you made were the yoda with clone and the obi on speeder.
Those look great. The custom Yoda is probably the best custom that I have seen.

Good job.
ILS, did you take pics of the Jaina Solo, Pilot that you made for LadyH? If not, LMK, and I can take some and post them here. You don't know how much she LOVES that custom. Thank you so much, and keep up the outstanding work.

I love them all!! U are an inspiration to us all. PS could u maybe do Yoda owning Gree or Grievous with his lightsaber through Stass killing her from the deleted scenes of ROTS. PLZ
U need a job at WOTC. Any chance you will be doing customs for Starships?
So how do you get in a magazine anyway? Your stuff is great.
Bravo! And I was proud of my customs! Sheesh! Now I can't decide between my favorite modder..CoTF, Adliv666 or you....geeze...are any of your customs up for trade? I'll always trade for some customs that are good. I like the clones.
A bump for Ironlightsaber!

Thanks for the bumps guys. Sorry for the lack of updates to this thread as well as the lack of S3 puzzles. Been very busy.

Mordantos-I hope they do. Space Hulk kicks ass.

Zuckuss787-I use sabers off of cheap figs or plastic rods that can be found in model train stores.

furiousfox-Hard to say. Lot of work besides just the construction of the fig went into in. It took about six hours to make, but prep work was probably three times that.

zbob1992-I would love to work freelance for WOTC. Anyone with WOTC please PM and get me signed up. Not kidding.

I can't afford to play SSB, but I still might pick up a ship or two just to mod. I'm a Falcon freak so I'll have to get one of those.

Toyhunter80's-The writer just contacted me through these boards. She was very nice and unfortuanly there was some mis-communication because of the language barrier about posting the unused photos before the magazine was published.

Fortunately it wasn't a problem but unfortunate I only have one copy of it and wouldn't mind getting a hold of an extra copy (It's kind of a dream come true to be published in the Star Wars Fan Magazine-even if it isn't the US version-supper geeky but I don't care). If anyone out there could get a hold of a copy for me please PM me. If it is ever translated and published in the US version please let me know.

basilisk_89-No, sorry. I have done customs on request though. I recently made a custom for Hothie of Han on Tauntaun which is nearly identical to the one on this thread. I also made a Janna Solo, Pilot for Lady Hothie.

I haven't posted in a while because I was busy getting things ready for the fall Nexus. Continuing the story from last time the there was a huge Naboo battle that took place on the maps by Lingster, which can be found here:

Love it or hate it, along with many other fans of this game I have been working on a set of customs for the Lost Twenty project on these boards. These are my first four customs that have instructions so anyone can make them.

IMAGE(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c142/ironlightsaber/FirstFour.jpg)

and here's some more that I made base on the figs and instructions by adliv666 and Mordantos & crew.

If you are new to the boards and don't know about the Lost Twenty go here:

or the TLT customs thread:

where you can also see the card art I've done for the set as well as art by many other artist.

Well, I still haven't made the stats for Plaggie. Oh well. I think I'll wait until that book comes out before I start. I have some more figs and stuff yet to do for TLT and I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do after that......

...anyway, thanks for a great year of SWM everyone! I hope the next year is even better for everyone!!!!

Really good customs here!

I cant believe that you got some published, well done you!
You're positive?
Dame those are great figs!!! I'v been playing 40k so long that when I look at my SWM figs, (really only the clone troopers ) I like to change their poses too. I just can't help it when in the WD mags there are so many articles on conversions. I agree you should get a job with WotC. When you repaint them do you undercoat the figure first?
A bump to give the new members something to drool over.

and put those of us who make customs to shame. Nothing does that like this thread, not even adliv's custom thread.

I'm unhappy with my Customs thread. Photobucket is rubbish. Half the picture won't load... then a week later they work and others don't.

I can't win.

you win on organization of customs thread.
Here's the last of the customs I made for the Lost Twenty project--

Canderous Ordo, Kyp Durron, Darth Revan and Mara Jade Skywalker.

Admiral Pellaeon, Voxyn and bonus fig made from left over parts-Neo, The One.

Here's a group picture of all twenty in the set including those based on the customs designed by adliv666 as well as Mordantos & crew.

Check my sig for a link to the TLT Customs Thread. There you will find instructions on how to make any of them (which have additional images of the customs) as well as the card art images I made for the project.

These customs were designed so that anyone can make them. If you have never made customs before this is a great place to start. There will be printable stat cards available soon.

Here's some customs I have done since the end of that project--Swoop Bike Gang Members with a dominatrix version of the MSG.

Do i even want to know what the gungan and ithorian are doing in the big pic?
They are positioned so that they would appear in the correct order as they are on the list. Because of their unusual poses that was the only way they could be positioned.

I know it looks like something funny could be going on, but did you notice that most of the other figs look like they are taking aim on Jar-Jar as well or that Winter is giving a half moon to the camera?

Roron is teaching Jar-Jar how to "feel" the force. Jar-Jar wasn't looking for any deep spiritual insight, he just wanted to eat his ice-cream cone. Poggle "mothman" the Lesser thought Jar-Jar was doing some sort gungan street dance with the jedi girl, and is giving him the thumbs down. Rukh thought someone called him Mothma and is preparing to pounce on the rebel leader. Sora senses "death from above" is iminent and is preparing to impale it. Kir hates Nogihri for outclassing the imperial guard corps every year at the bodyguard competetions and is about to take his revenge. Canderous is using the excuse that the hammerhead is about to throw a rock at him, but in all actuallity he has just gone soft in his old age and wants to help Jar-Jar. Reven reborn is offering Canderous the chance to "Feel" the deep force like Jar-Jar if he stops his new apprentice Roron. Carth, feeling bad about running off like a sissy and leaving mission to die, is tring to get a shot off at Reven, however his new partner Mistress Sunrider is actually preforming a streat dance to the gungan drummers beat, and genrally showing her butt, resulting in Carth losing a hand (as usally happens when playing with jedi). Mohc is yawning as he was up too late at the Dark Trooper Initiation Cerimony, and thanks to the new "blast shielded" helmet design he can't see Pellaeon. The Admiral is having trouble with his pants riding up again and is therefor oblivious to the giant right hook about to mess up his hair. Jan is saying "But, why am I the one that has to go down there, my blaster is stuck?" To which Crix replies "Because someone has to save Mothma, and I'm a general, we just don't do rescues." Winter is either teasing Jan about having smaller bumps on both ends, or taking a shot at Mara out of jelousy over her unnaturally large force enhanced bumps. The Chieften is taking a potty break, while the Voxyn is headed out to luch at the "Force Enhanced Bump Buffet". Garm is loosing his hearing and trying to figure out what the little jedi welp is mumbling about. Kyp has fallen to the darkside again, and is about to take vengence on Mara for using her force enhanced bumps to get Luke to promote her above Kyp. Mara? She's totaly clueless to it all, as all her concentration is focused on keeping up her dual antigravity force enhancements. In fact she is so focused that she hasn't even eaten in a month, which is how she gets her waist so small.

So, you see Jar-Jar was just trying to have a nice afternoon at the royal gungan parade, and eat some Guba fish ice-cream. The rest of the universe just naturally spins out of control in the wake of a simple gungan. It's a law of universal dynamics, or at least a consistantly unfalable theorem.

Nice customs btw. Did you tie the gansta girl's whip into a lasso for catching her BF? And the green swoop is too sweet, it actually looks like one of those Naboo sea mosters.

No I didn't tie it togeher.

Good eye on catching the sea monster look. I did have that creature in mind while coming up with the look of the eyes and teeth but painted the body green to go with Greedo.

I'd sig that if it wasn't so long.
honestly, i dont like canderious's mini, kyp's mini, or carth's.

The only one that I don't particularly like is Carth's. His breasts are too small.
:P

How much would a set of those bikes set me back?
jedimasterzack2049, that's cool. Not everyone is going to like everything.

I encourage you or anyone else that doesn't like any of TLT to do what DalsianDon has done--make them and improve apon the original design in any manner you see fit.

Or if you are really inspired--create a custom yourself following the guildlines posted in the opening post, create instructions with photo illustrated steps and if it's better I would be more than happy to replace it in the set.

Adliv said it best when talking about his Carth fig when he basically said that it wasn't the Carth he would make for himself. The Carth he made for TLT was the best he could create so that anyone can make it.

That's my defense on any of the TLT customs I created as well. In fact, I think I might make a Revan, a Kyp and possibly some of the other characters from the TLT project to the best of my ablities to go with the stat cards when they are done.

Yoda, I have no idea what I would charge.

I call the Quarren one
Maybe the US version will translate it and put it in their magazine. Thank you Maria for the article and letting me be a part of it. Thanks again Dustin for taking some great images.

I have to thank YOU and Dustin for the pics. It was great having them for the article

(Sorry for the late reply. I've been offline for a while.)
Thanks Boushh, I really do appreciate the feedback.



Currently I am working on a couple of different things--

-Clone Trooper Grenadiers, Clone Trooper Sergeants, Clone Commandos and a Clone on a modded Hellion Speeder Bike based on the one that Adliv made to go with my Clone Squad and their colors.

-A set of ewoks.

-and the biggest custom mini I have ever made......:D

It might take me a while to get these done and pictures up. The problem is I have been hooked into playing KOTOR and it really is as good as I have heard. Now I have to make customs of some of these characters.
