Thanks. making these figs and coming up with new minifig stuff to dress them with is really fun. It makes you look at familliar pieces a whole new way. And working in a scale just slightly above minifig scale adds a lot to when you're trying to come up with good looking weapons. Visit my Flickr page
for more of the non SW figs. I'm working on some post apocalyptic gerilla figs right now and a Vader is waiting to have his picture taken.
Recently I posted this little Grim Reaper.

Not sure about how sturdy the legs' attachment to the feet are, but it sure looks cool.
Neat work and great use of helmets
I'm not going to lie to you. Things keeps falling off when dealing with little guys, but the brickbuilt leg method is not as weak as it looks. It's at the othor end of the spectrum actually. The two bottom clips leaving little bite marks on the top clip. So that's something to concider.
The figs are great for display purposes and it's easy to get interesting poses for photos. Right now I only have three or our of these frames for figs and keep changing headgear around to find good figs to photograph. So it's not as time consuming as other projects I've been working on. I've even developed a brickbuilt turntable that goes under the backgruond paper with a technic axis turning the platform with the fig. The camera on a tripod and a few turns on a wheel and you have a pic of every angle in the same pose whithout anything falling off.
Keep the comments coming. I'm going to make more Star Wars themed figs as well.
