My next sculpt in the works is that of the smuggler/pirate named Mazzic as featured in the graphic novle adaption of Timothy Zahn's Star Wars : The Last Command. This is the only character, other than Lando, that sports a sense of style sporting those cool shades and spiked hair LOL! I don't know why, but the character reminds me of Tyler Durden from Fight Club...probably for the same reason...the shades, the hair. The head sculpt is alomst complete - still working on that hair of his :) Just a teaser this time around - If you'r not familiar with the character, a pic of him is below as well as this link....
I have also begun work on additional Sith from the Star Wars Legacy comic series...
and Darth Stryfe...
I have the bodies prepped and began the head sculpts last week - nice to do an additional female Sith to go along with my "almost completed" Darth Talon.
And yet another character that has made it to my workbench, a character that made it's firat appearance in the video game Starfighter, but later found his way to the comic book pages of Dark Horse's Star Wars Tales - thanks to Haden Blackman and Jan Duursema. His name is Nym, a Feeorin pirate and badass LOL! - His head is alomst complete, I am working on the upper body now. Nym will be sculpted as he appeared in the Star Wars Tales story, Single Cell.
Read a little bit more about Nym here....
He's got quite a history!
So there you have it! Always have work to do and keep busy with - never a dull moment. By the way, a little update on my custom Embo...I've found some material that will work very well for soft goods - I hope to begin work on painting the designs and patterns soon.
I've also began work on a resculpted Boba Fett (since it is the 30th anniversary of ESB) - Hasbro simply can't get it right in my opinion...not to say that I', any better but I'll give it a shot! I'm also reworking my Darth Vader custom - something about the helmet I'm not digging. Decided to revisit the sculpt. I want to make the helmet three seperate parts...the body is complete and I'm very happy with it :)

Bioware introduces a second theatrical realease to their upcoming Old Republic game - The Hope of Alderaan.
The sith lord featured in this piece is outstanding...if I never play the game, I'm already a fan thanks to these fine pieces of CGI.
Amazing - Thanks to Lucasarts and Bioware for some much needed inspiration and ideas :)
You know some of these guys will be on my workbench soon!
BTW - I am in love with the lady jedi LOL! - anyone know her name?
