OOH, very good customs The Penguin. I think you did a good job on giving Senator Tikkes a greasy look. :thumbup:
Do you use clay for customs?

These are nice, at first I thought this was going to have alot of confusing clones from EU. :tongue:  But for some characters with tall heads, I'd suggest making the neck either shorter or "blending" it better with the neck(instead of having it go straight from the neck to the head. I really like your Shaak Ti and Wat Tambor. :wub:

Have you tried making a Count Dooku or Darth Bane? I like their characters, but I don't like seeing every character with  *huh*  eyes and Bane's my #1 Darth.
(is there any Lego on the droid commander besides the arms and legs? :look: )

The droid kneeling is my favorite of the bunch but all of them are great.

Thanks a lot, LegoGalactus! )  :classic:
I may still give Quarrens another try, but later, perhaps. ) No. I use greenstuff.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.  :classic:
I'll see about Bane. I just need to find a pic of him first. Not sure I remember him properly.
Yes, he's made of LEGO parts, but some a bit altered and painted.

I love all of your customs.  :classic:

Yowzuh! Your San Hill is amazing! I love the tall, slender and pompously superior look you've given him!

Your Tikkes is good, but it looks odd. I guess it's hard for me to apply reasoning to a Quarren!  :tongue:

I'm Agnostic and ambivalent about it.

Nice! Being a clone fan myself, I think Commander Gree's guys are great! My favorite, however, is Wat Tambor.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked San Hill. He may not be the best custom, but i guess i've managed to give him a relatively nice expression. )

Just fantastic part, Penguin! :thumbup:
Every fig is beatifully detailed. I particularly like Dobby's ears on a normal head to make Piell. Divo also looks excellent. :grin:
Really well done! :sweet:

Wow, good to see you back to some more mocing!

Tarkin, Organa and Piell look as good as official TLC figures! :thumbup: I also think you did good work with the markings on the Nautolan  too! :thumbup:

Whilst I think TC-14 looks good, it just doesn't feel as 'shiny' as the other protocol droids.

I also like the way you're presenting you're figs with the reference pictures! :thumbup:

I haven't seen your SW customs before Penguin so I've enjoyed looking through your collection.

I think they are all good, but out of your latest batch I think Even Piell, Pre Visla and Tan Divo really stand out.

Yes, that was really surprising to find out how long I have not updated the thread!  :laugh:

Well, once I get the chroming machine I'll make them shine!  :laugh:

I'm always impressed by your figures, Penguin, but these are outstanding! :cry_happy:
TC-13 looks great, I really like the eyes. Lott Dod, Tarkin and the Zabrak all have very clean-looking 'paint-jobs'.  :thumbup:
And Even Peill is perfect, definitely my favorite figure in the whole topic.  :wub:

Your presentation of the figures is great too, the reference pictures are very helpful.
Keep up the good work!  :classic:

I know the Star Wars universe is a vast one, but after watching the forth series' opening episode, I thought I could make a suggestion. Maybe you could use either of these shark heads...

... to make Riff Tamson, the sepritist commander?
