This is the official thread for FFURG Casting Call #55. In conjunction with the 5 year anniversary of the FFURG FForums, the special topic is: "Customs of Us - Revisited". Please submit your customs on this thread. This thread is also be the place for critiques, questions and comments on the submitted customs. The casting call shall be "open" during the month of May. At the end of the month, the submissions shall be gathered together and casting call will be posted on the main FFURG page. Any custom submitted after the casting call is posted will still be added to it, just not in time for the initial debut.

Those looking for inspiration should check out the original "
Customs of Us
" casting call from way back in December of 1999. I'm looking forward to seeing what we can all cook up this time around.

Happy customizing!

Don, shouldn't this have gone in the 3.75 customs section?

Yes, it should have. I am not quite sure how I managed to do that! I'm sure that one of our friendly neighborhood mods would be happy to move it for us!

I'll have to double-check, but I'm sure that I have one I can send you.

No thanks on the Endor. The Bespin one might work...

Please do.

It's about having the vest/jacket on. I'm going to try to incorporate into a lab coat.

And Gene, oh spell checker--cool avatar too, fixed! Thanks.

This is the second version I've done of "Sgt Jak Kona". My wife and kids thought that the head on the original figure looked so much like me, that I developed the Rebel Alliance/New Republic Marine backstory around certain parts of my life (I was a U.S. Marine for almost 10 years). The character's first name, Jak, was derived from the first letter of the first names of my wife (Jen), son (Adam) and daughter (Kate). The last name, Kona, is actually my first name in Hawaiian (I was stationed there for over 5 years). And, yes, you guessed it, I was a Sergeant when I got out. You could say that this character is the way I'd see myself if I had been born a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. I decided that although the first version probably could have been posted here, I wanted to do something new, specifically for the casting call. The recipe and backstory can be found here. The original figure can be seen here. I think that I will probably continue to expand upon this character, the way Chewie has done with his Rykrof Enloe character.

Edit: Okay, I thought it would be fun to add a photo of myself to show the resemblance. It's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with how much it actually looks like me.

That's a pretty good likeness, Ben! The colors are a good match, too. The only problem I see is the paint at the elbow and shoulder joints, which is a fairly common issue. I think some folks have solved it by sanding the joints before painting and then sealing them after the paint has dried. Happy customizing!

Nice looking figure, uiesaentdtts! I don't think I recognize any of the parts. What did you use for this?

The head is Ganner Krieg. I'm guessing on the rest here, but pants are Mutt Williams, probably the torso too, but the arms are they GI Joe DTC Barrel Roll?

Thanks! actually the shoulder joint is just where the arm doesn't quite fit into th torso.

The head is Ganner Krieg, the torso, arms, and upper legs are Mutt Williams, and the lower legs are Rebel honor guard.
