This is my rendition of Galen Marek from the "Force Unleashed II" video game. Many of these have been done by a myriad of extremely talented artists, and when I saw what could be done, I had to have one! I drew my inspiration from the uncanny Stronox (as I do for a lot of my work, he's freaking amazing), using his marek figure as a guide of sorts to create my own. Marek is a combination of GI Joes and Star Wars parts. The hand and foot wraps, shoulder bell, pouch, and some of the straps and buckles were all hand sculpted. I am very happy with the way he turned out, with the exception of the paint job. I feel I have yet to perfect the wash, as my figures are lacking a certain "pop" and shadow. If anyone has any advice for me on this subject, please feel free to comment.
Jenna Brixie, a fan fiction Corellian smuggler, was created out of some sexy spare GI Joe and SW parts that I was able to salvage from a few failed projects.
I bought this cool looking alien guy from a local comic store packed loose in a little plastic case. I had no idea who he was, and the store had stuck a lightsaber in his hand, probably to increase sell-ability. After doing a bit of web sleuthing, I discovered that he's some lame senator from a prequel movie name Po Nudo. This figure was basically a statue from the waist down, no leg or hip articulation at all, just a one piece mold and a solid plastic skirt. I knew that wasn't gonna cut it at all, so I popped him in half, cut the skirt away from the belt, and fashioned a lower body for him using a TVC Maul waist and upper legs, Quinlan Vos lower legs and feet, and a skirt from a Jedi woman. Now he has full articulation and pose-ability, including ball jointed hips which I consider a must-have. Now that's more like it!
Dooku was not a favorite character of mine from the prequel trilogy and most of the figures of him produced by Hasbro have been pretty weak. I would have never considered putting together a Dooku custom until I stumbled upon an image of him as a Jedi Master. I think he looks much better this way and I am happy with the way he turned out.
About My Custom Action Figure Blog
After being totally wowed by the plethora of Star Wars, GI Joe and Marvel Universe custom figures on the internet I got inspired to bust a couple out myself! The purpose of this blog is just to share my work, get feedback and make connections with other people who love custom action figures and creative expression as much as I do. I love comments, whether you love my stuff or downright hate it, so leave your opinions for me to see! I am always open to ideas and suggestions for new projects as well. Thanks for viewing, and may the Force be with you.
