Thread: Vintage customs thread

  1. #1

    Vintage customs thread

    I figured it might be good to do a central thread for vintage customs. Here are some links to some of the threads:

    vintage customs

    Custom Vintage ROTS Figures

    ROTS Concepts

    Rocket Fett

    POTF Snow trooper

    Cloud car repaint

    My customs

    MagillaFetts Maul

    Vader

    Mecannoman!!!!!!!!

    There are some vintage highlights that I could find, I am sure I have missed some.. Perhaps we can use this thread to showcase vintage creations!!!

    Bowing low.

    Heck, I'd curtsy if you wanted me to. Those figures are more than likely all still in my collection. I very seldom strip an old custom for parts. Sometimes, but very rarely.

    I should locate them all and take better pictures. As I recall, most of those pics were taken down in the basement of my old house. The basement had fluorescent lighting when I first moved in-- although eventually that all went kaput-- so it was the best place to photograph small items which required a lot of light.

    I usually put the figures on top of the dryer with a white sheet for a backdrop, then I'd take pics with an old-fashioned camera, have them developed at the drugstore, and then a week later, I'd send the ones which were actually in focus to Gus to have him scan. No telling how many customs never got posted simply due to the pics not turning out.

    Yes, I'd mail REAL photos via the USPS! How quaint.

    P.S. Not sure how I missed the 'tale a bow' message last month. Sorry for the delay.

    In all honesty, Alex's custom Uncle Owen was one of my inspirations for beginning to customize at all. And as an homage, I pretty much stole his recipe to make my own.

    So thanks, Alex, for years of customizing fun. Your's and Steve Radler's work on TRG is what started it all for me.

    Re: Vintage customs thread

    Here's just a couple I've made over the years. Enjoy!



    Imperial Stormtrooper (Tattoine Battle Gear)
    Stormtrooper torso
    Luke Stormtrooper arms and legs (these were the parts I had on hand. Stormtrooper limbs would have worked just fine)
    Hoth survival backpack
    POTF2 Sandtrooper Pauldron




    Owen Lars
    Luke Skywalker body, arms, legs
    Luke X-Wing Pilot right hand
    General Madine head
    EP 1 Jedi robe (bleached to tan)

    The pics are a little blurry because my camera is crapola but you get the idea. More to come!
