I'm sure everyone has tried the Rogue One 5POA Stormtrooper head on an older Stormtrooper body?



My old stormtrooper is so yellow compared to my Son's figures tho! lol. Unless the joker squad figure was supposed to be off white like this? Idk.

I don't have 5 poa StormTroopers ^^


Upper part is seamed so tight it will be difficult to crack it open as you can hardly find the seem ...

Belly looks like it can't pop from pelvis but it looks easier to open in two



And I just realized she doesn't have elbow articulation ^^

Gonna make a few torso&head copies to take with me to paint..,



Probably black details with fishnet front? High heels!! Gotta fix the arms later,and at least add upper thigh swivel to the legs.

Gonna be pouring a few Vietnam guys today. Found good legs to go with 50th gung-ho too! So I'll be pouring a couple of them as well,probably next weekend

Ugh. Her original head/face sculpt is so dumpy.

Finally got around to put in a print order. I'm using part of my profit sharing check to get these off the ground.

First, I did a self portrait


Then I made my replica Langhorne Slim hat


A couple shots of my redone Venom Snake

And here's the first attempt to make a MJ compatible torso. I didn't want to go the overbuff route with .001% body fat. This will make it easier to sculpt clothing down the road.

Going to have to reconfigure the tooling. It didn't quite matchup with the back piece and left a small gap in couple areas. I also think the shoulder joint allowance for the peg was a little off.

Is that the black acrylate material? Looks pretty good.

I grew my beard when my dad died. Not some sort of sentimental time stamp, it's just how I remember when I grew one. Last year, I cut it off and immediately regretted it. I changed so much in 5 years, I didn't recognize myself.

Just blind master rocking his ARAH comic hat. Also photographed is the Henley torso. I'm seeking assistance in getting a print that doesn't droop the tooling, creating the gaps

I like that henley torso! It's almost exclusively my daily attire with something over it or under it, weather dependent.

I haven't seen him do anything that wasn't fantastic! just wow!


Rider gave me a Dart Talon figure,and I made some molds...tested them out,and some newer material that's super flexible I bought,and never tried before giving up on the hobby,..I sent him a bunch of figures for Christmas,and he sent me Talon out of the blue! Nice! And a hand drawing which is really neat!



The tunic thing is super flexible,almost cloth flexible! kinda neat! If it wasn't sitting up on stuff it would drape to the table..the original is very rigid! I actually had fun casting!! Crazy

I'm trying,but failing it seems. Once I get time to actually start listening on eBay I think once stuff starts selling it'll get easier to let go.

Idk why. It looks fine to me. My shrunken Spider Gwen lower torso fits that upper perfectly tho,so more then likely I'll go that route. I ordered that other SW figure on eBay today to hopefully get the joints I need...hopefully they're the same.

No,thank you btw. I seriously didn't expect anything in return! I'm actually going to frame your note btw. The drawing is pretty cool,and has personally.
