Three New Purist Minifig WIP's

Post by Fixer on Sat Sep 06, 2008 4:02 am

I'd like to introduce you to three of my current WIP's: an Ithorian bounty hunter, a female Mandalorian bounty hunter,
and an ARC Flame Trooper.

Let's start off with the Mandalorian...
No one knows her real name, her only known alias is Vorpan. Why Vorpan you ask?
Well she's obsessed with the color green and Vorpan is Mando'a for green. (Real original, huh? Razz)
She comes equipped with a classic Mandalorian helmet and jetpack with a double barreled Grenade Launcher.
Why is she a WIP?
Her torso is in dire need of a decal, and her gun doesn't quite look "finished" to me.

Pics:





Now lets move on to the Ithorian...
I don't have much of much to say about him, yet. Embarassed
Other than that he's a cunning Ithorian bounty hunter clad in black armor with his trusty "spike" shotgun.

Why is he a WIP?
I'm not satisfied with his head quite yet, and I need to improve his shotgun a bit as it's a little too simplistic
for my tastes at the moment. Any ideas?

Pics:



The last minifig creation is a p.1 ARC Flame Trooper...
He comes equipped with a flamethrower, Kama, visor, and an alternate backpack for when he's not carrying around his flamethrower.

Why is he a WIP?
He's meant to have orange highlights instead of the Republic red ones he currently has on his armor.
Also, the dark grey hands on the flamethrower

Pics:
Arc with his Flamethrower and other related equipment.




What's this?! The flamethrower actually fits onto the backpack!


The ARC with the alternate backpack.


No extra accessories, well almost. Wink


Close-ups of the Flamethrower and the alternate backpack.



Well that's it for the minifigs... British voice inside my head, "Well, what's all this than?!".
It's an extra little treat for you all, duh. Roll Eyes (Wink)

This is a little Vig I cooked up in about five minutes to showcase the minifigs I just created, well let's take a look...

What's going on?
The ARC is sent to deal with the troublesome bounty hunter duo on the sky platforms of Bespin.

Pics:

And finally, an overview of the little skirmish.

Awesome Fixer! I really like the flamethrower, though I am not so sure about the Mandalorians gun. It's creative but I don't really like it. The Ithorian is very smart, you can make it it's helmet or something.

WOW! I love the flamethrow, and the Mandalorean gun, nice use of legs and arms! Can I use your flamethrower idea? I will give you credit.

The Mandalorian gun is not so great. It must be really unbalanced if you have such a huge barrel, and a small stock.

Thanks T-B!
Also, anything in particular you don't like about the Grenade Launcher?

All you can see is his armor and helmet, as Ithorian's are only brown, red, or green. Wink

Thanks DP!
And yes, you can use the flamethrower. Smile

Yes, it's very front heavy. But hey, that's what the studs are for on LEGO bricks right?
So, am I to presume your suggestion is to make it more balanced by either thinning down the barrel or beefing up the stock of the gun?

How about a closeup pic of it? Wink

Thanks Tac! Though he's not Fox, just a regular ARC.

Thanks T-C! Congrats on using the most appropriate emoticon yet. ^_^

A word from the wise - try to work on your grammar and punctuation.
I corrected your post when I quoted you above to give you an idea of what you should be aiming for. Wink

Once again thanks for all the replies, kind words, and suggestions for improvement!

Quoting spree, Fixer! And yes, I meant to thin down the barrel; sorry if I confused you there.

Thanks Tac; I actually discovered that it could do that after I finished building it. Embarassed

wow wOW WOW Fix! These are awesome! I actually kinda like the general green of the mandolorian! The flamethrower is really sweet but the use of the legs is definitely the best!!! I never knew you could put an arm in the leg socket, plus it looks great like a gun! Possible a Halo weapon or something Razz Wink

I wanted to create something green and there was a Boba Fett helmet laying around close by so I grabbed it and started building.

I didn't either until I wanted to attach the flamethrower to the backpack.
I wondered if it would fit in the hole and it just so happened to be a perfect fit.
