"JEDI YOUNGLINGS" created by Customs for the Kid (PART TWO)

Ever since we started this project it has been racing toward completion. It felt like every time we completed a new figure, we became so excited with what we had produced that we couldn't wait to get another action figure started and finished.  We were customizing maniacs every free moment we had. We were able to finish the entire project in less than 3 weeks which is unheard of for us. Usually it takes us months to create six, 100% sculpted figures. A real passion for the project and loads of teamwork were the key to the project's quick completion. We put in about seven, 10-12 hour workdays by the time we finished it up.

The workload was divided up fairly evenly. Dad sculpted out Byph by himself and did most of Zatt. I asked to sculpt Zatt's face and his two outer tentacles. I had something specific in mind and Dad said "go for it". I also added some subtle highlights to the figure before the paint was sealed. I sculpted Petro's head and upper torso, while Dad sculpted the arms and added articulation to the elbows and wrists. Dad also sculpted everything on Petro from the belt on down. We both shared the paint on Petro. The only thing Dad did on Katooni was shorten her arms, while showing me how to maintain the original articulation. The rest of Katooni was all me. I also did all the work there was to be done on Ganodi. With Gungi, Dad built out his body and then we split up the sculpting throughout. Gungi ended up being my first 100% sculpted head.

We were hoping to have had the parts here so Huyang could have been posed here with the rest of the bunch, but the shipping has been delayed and we don't have a clear arrival date. Therefore, Huyang will just get his own post on the blog at some future date. It is likely Huyang's big reveal will be on "Customizing The Clone Wars" when we discuss the Youngling arc, so stay tuned when the episode drops!
