Larry this is totally awesome work you did here and a great "how-to" for us dummies!  I would love to try this at some point down the road and this is the first stop I will make when I attempt my hand at this!

I think dustrho, masterfett and the many other customizers here should try some for all of their custom clones!

Larry, that is some great work. It's so cool when people reach there hands out to one another. I still can't believe you found something to use those old pictures for!
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

A big thanks go to Dustrho, not only for setting this page up, but for putting the link in there for everybody, since I forgot to do that. ;D

 :rofl: everyone is a comedian these days! you guys knew what I meant, I mean I can stop bugging Larry to recard all my loose figs and I can try to do it myself now. air holes, big bublle. besides I look good loose, putting me under a bubble would be overkill. I also dont think there would be a big enough peg to hold me either?

Ya I knew about Larry but he's been MIA for a while, so I was curious if anyone else dabbles in this art as I need something done.

I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

You know the oder 66 tube inserts? I want one that has Yoda printed on one side and 501st Legion on the other. It's for a custom I did where Yoda is pulling his Lightsaber from a trooper chest, I thought it would look cool inside one of those 2pk tubes.

Ok this is what the two figures look like, I preferably want that backdrop from the Jedi Temlpe scene but I have been unable to find any images of it.

Wow! How the hell I never saw this thred is beyond me  ::)

I didn't read the whole Tut posted in this thred
as my time online is very limited right now,
but I did see one thing
I'd like to mention that will help.

I have found that after tring many different types of card stock
or paper stock, comic book backings (acid free) are the best to use.
This image is to show what I'm talking about although you can probably get it cheaper at a local shop in your area.



They come in packs of 100 and cost's average from $10 to $15
depending on where you shop.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me here
or by e-mail.

A heads up that my computer's hard drive
blew on me after two yrs of no problems
and last week I had emergency surgery on my right
knee so please give me some time to respond.

I also have a few "how to" vids on my youtube page.
