Other than the edited helmet (I think it was the helmet) it is pretty cool.

Not really. I could have easily made a crap fig. But instead I made an amazing one that looks real.

That's true, it looks real, but it still is a little bit less amazing knowing that it's not.

So are movies with CGI and special effects less amazing because they aren't real? No...

Very nice JJ. Very nice. The gray hood makes this minifigure. I'll nominate it if no one else does.

I'm not complaining. It's just that its basically the regular Red Guard (plus the staff) with a desaturated helmet. But if you put some CGI work (or sharpie doesn't matter) into the torso, then it would be much better.

Who cares that it is not real, it still looks great. It is a new kind of customizing, well still being purist.

THANK YOU! That's the point I'm trying to make.

@TB: Thanks for the feedback, I might sharpie a red guard design on the torso.

It's not "new" per se, rather an under-explored venue of customizing.

I think it's great, there's a reason for GIMP, you know. It's like saying not to edit lasers or sun flares, or whatever you put in your pictures.

Yea, and it's especially good for when you don't want to ruin a red guard helmet.

That actually is very nice CGI. One nitpick though, forgot the blade part in the shadow of the staff.

The staff should be just a regular rod and a lightsaber on top of it Wink plus it is grayish and it should be a blackish color.

OMGoat! Heaven forbid! Worth bumping the thread for "ish". Bye bye. -R
