Ok a few of mine i`ll get some better pics when get chance

Custom Uzay Figures + Cards
Plan is to eventually put together the whole set figures are all modified / resprayed from standard SW beater figures cards are all marked so if ever did get out of my possesion couldnt be sold on as originals. Smile



Custom Xmas Yoda
Plan was to make 10 of these this year but with all the work involved in making them the number dropped to 5. Standard Yoda figure with hand made coat , hat , belt and candy cane all sealed on a custom SW front and a modified POTF 92 back just to be a little different Smile





Custom Mini Cards
Not figures this time, But printed 1 of these off just to see what it would look like and ended up looking cute so printed off the whole SW set. Will eventually get around to printing off all the other cardback i have and with any luck i`m hoping to put together a full set off these little mini cards Very Happy



I`ll update pics and add more content as and when i make more Smile

I have always loved seeing Vintage Custom Figures and there have been some awesome ones produced over the years!

It must takes real artist skill to pull them off.

If you have made any Vintage Customs, of have pictures of Vintage Customs or want to discuses / share techniques then feel free to post here!

I may even try some myself in the next few weeks with some of the beater figures i own  Smile


To kick things off i have had these picture saved on my PC for a while

Vintage Custom - Cantina Spaceman (Source Unknown)




Vintage Custom - Tie Fighter Pilot Removable Helmet (Source Lee Bullock RS)




Vintage Custom - Biggs (Source Unknown)




Vintage Custom - Rebel Blockade Trooper (By richalot on RS)

Made using a Han Endor body and Death Squad Commander head.




Vintage Custom - Rebel Captain Antillies (By richalot on RS)

Made using a Han Bespin body and Death Squad Commander body.





Another worthy addition to the Vintage Customs Thread!

These were made by an RS user a number of years ago now.

The idea was to show what might have happened if Mego were given the License instead of Kenner.

For those who know about Mego they produced a number of Lines in the 70 / 80's including Star Trek.

I have not done many customs but when they talk about enamel paint not drying & it staying tacky it is true Embarassed Permanent marker works OK but the black always seems to have a purple tinge to it. Aim for customs that do not need painting!! I've used an acrylic spray primer that works well & as with all painting make sure it is clean before painting Wink

Hi Peter,

You can say that again Admiral. Very Happy

I really like the Luke and Biggs with removable helmets. Also, that POTF Bounty Hunter pack is awesome. Did you make that packaging as well?

Hi lads, wish i had the talent but alas no, a guy who lived nearby made the figures and i purchased the POTF pack from eBay a few years ago.. It came from the States and i think the guy who made it also made a Hoth pack as well but i have never been able to find one..

Nice thread indeed Jay!

Custom vintage figures are very cool imo!

Below a shot of the best scene from the worst SW movie ever.

In case you like to see the whole movie: Holiday Special

30:00: WTF!! WARNING: Not for the faint of heart! Thumbs up for the guy who can watch the complete scene till 37:30
56:00: Oh well, this is quite interesting, an animated break with… Boba Fett!!!

Cheers,

Marco
