"CLONE WARS: THE LOST MISSIONS - YODA's DARKSIDE" created by Customs for the Kid

On this one, Dad built out the body from the head, hands, biceps, and feet of a Clone Wars Yoda action figure. The body was from a LOTR Gollum action figure whose legs were modified like the Kylo Ren forearms that we used. I sculpted out a new open snarled up mouth and changed the sculpt of the eyes, chin, and top of Yoda's head. 

To create his vaporous appearance we used cotton balls that we dyed black, glued to the figure and then used maximum hold hairspray to style the cotton the way that we wanted it to rest on the figure. Once it achieved maximum hold, we painted the cotton in the places where it was needed. 

I was really happy with what we pulled off on this one.

"LOST MISSIONS" FIVES (CORUSCANT CLUB DISGUISE) created by Customs for the Kid

This was a quick easy custom to make. Just grab the body of the Phase II Clone Trooper action figure, paint it black, and then drybrush in the white of the armor. We used a Clone headcast we made from a mold we had and painted it so it had Fives head tattoo and goatee. Then we painted a Imperial Officer cap from Juno Eclipse to finish the custom of Fives in his Coruscant club disguise.

"CUSTOMIZING THE CLONE WARS" - EPISODE 73

"TONNIKA SISTERS" created by Elias

In 0 BBY, when a mission to transport the Hammertong prototype ended in a stormtrooper ambush, Karoly D'ulin and Shada D'ukal found themselves on Tatooine, and were in the Mos Eisley Cantina when Luke Skywalker first met Han Solo. The women were masquerading as the Tonnika sisters: Karoly was disguised as Senni Tonnika while Shada posed as Brea Tonnika.

Senni Tonnika (Karoly D'ulin) was made using 3.75" The Black Series Padme, which was heavily modified using a Dremel. The pattern on the chest was completely taken away, as well as the scars on the back.  The boots were filled in using ProCreate to give it a smoother texture.  The band on the thigh and belt were also sculpted in using ProCreate.  The collar and sleeves were sculpted into place with Aves Fixit sculpt.  The head was made from a cast supplied by I-Am-Boba-Fett.  

Brea Tonnika (Shada D'ukal) was made using the 3.75" Build A Droid Leesub Sirlin.  The overshirt was completely removed using the Dremel, and the collar and sleeves were sculpted with Aves Fixit sculpt. The thigh band and belt were made from ProCreate.  The holster on the boot of Leesub Sirlin wsas simply removed with a razor blade, then sanded to smooth down the surface.  The head was the exact same cast as the first figure, which was supplied by I-Am-Boba-Fett. However, I used paint to make the faces appear different in shape, and structure.

I made them to sell since we have another set of heads we can use to make a set for ourselves at a later date. THIS SET IS NOW SOLD!

"9001 Z001 LANDSPEEDER" created by Elias

Six-point-eight meters in diameter, this speeder carried a single pilot. The craft hovered up to three meters above the ground and its numerous viewports allowed its driver an excellent field of vision. While not the speediest of vehicles, able to achieve only 160 kilometers per hour, a ring of micro-thrusters around the hull granted exceptional maneuverability. One of these vehicles was seen parked outside Chalmun's Cantina in "A New Hope".

We had originally purchased a 1:18 scale cast of this ship from Hole In The Ground Productions to display with our personal collection. Sometime after we purchased it, we received a second interpretation of the ship from an alternate seller. When I was thinking of some cool pieces I could produce over my summer break from school that I could sell to make some cash, Dad suggested that I paint up one of the two versions of this speeder that we had sitting on our shelf of future products. To keep costs down for the buyer, I grabbed the less complicated of the two versions to paint up for sale.

It took about 16 hours to paint inside and out. While an unpainted version is still available to purchase from Hole In The Ground for only $48, my painted version will cost considerably more due to all the hours it took to paint and bring to completion.  If anyone is interested in buying this piece, the cost is $275 + shipping. All you need to do is send an email to customsforthekid@gmail.com to let us know you are interested in making the purchase.
