Ki Adi Mundi Head and Kaminoan Neck Piece

Post by Clashy on Sat Feb 27, 2010 8:37 am

Just a few more things I've been working on with my lathe.


Ki Adi Mundi Head

Kaminoan Neck

Ki Adi Mundi Head silicone mold



Now I made sure that the Ki Adi head is seamless, that little white or gray bit you see is just the Milliput I used to bond it. And I ran it though my lathe afterwards to make sure it was nice and smooth.

And I'm not sure if I'll go anywhere with the Kaminoan neck, but if there's enough interest in it, I might decide to cast it. It still does need a bit of work before it would be casted.

I also just got my casting supplies and started casting a few custom pieces, it sets rather quickly, so I should have a couple of prototype pieces sometime tomorrow.

C&C Welcome
Thanks for viewing!

Have to say that the head is pretty darn kool. And since I don't see many being made (if any) then I vote for top dollars for it.

Well, I plan on opening my own shop - "Clashy's Customizables!"

So expect many, if people like them that is. Wink


And sorry mods for the screwed up misspellings/screw-ups in the poll and whatnot. (Fatigue + Incoherency + Fumes = Durrhuurr?)

Ki Adi's head, I think is too tall.

The Kaminoan neck needs to be more special, more Kaminoan. At the moment it looks you just added a cylinder block to separate the torso and the head, just like what everyone usually does when making Kaminoan minifigs.

These are relatively simple designs - I won't pay more than $3, if that...

Yes, but I took the time to chop through it and make it nice, smooth, and conformed to the "minifig neck - people usually don't do that. Wink

And if you can make one as good as this, let me know how "easy" it is and tell me you want to charge a relatively low amount for a piece that took a good amount of time to make, along with a chunk of relatively expensive resin and dyes. Smile

They are really awesome, although I think $7 is too much. I'd say around $4-$5 would be a good price.

I don't care how easy or hard it is - if there's too little special about your designs, then, to me, a higher price for them is unreasonable.

A Ki-adi-mundi head is actually quite special and unique. No-one else has made them except when part of figures and already decalled/printed. A head by itself is, at the moment, unique.

A very nice custom. The ki-adi-mundi head looks amazing, I would certainly buy one.
The kaminoan neck is also quite good, again I would buy one.

I realize they are just prototypes at the time but I think a finished custom minifig would better help people gauge the value of the parts.
The Ki-adi-mundi is pretty awesome and definitely unique as CG said.

Anywhere from 4-6 dollars, but I have a question: Will these only come in yellow(Ki-Adi-Mundi Head)? Not that I've actually seen anyone have a flesh dye product.

Mmm, vanilla rice milk.

I don't know what that is but it sounds tasty. Razz

That actually looks very cool; the only thing I'd say was that the Kaminoan neckpiece would look best under a specifically shaped Kaminoan head; it wouldn't look quite as good beneath your average minifigure head.

I would love to buy up a ki-adi mundi head for around 4-5 dollars but Id only buy one if it came in flesh.

The Kaminoan neck looks somewhat too long and Ki Adi Mundi's a bit too tall. Wink

Nice customs Smile. I'd buy them if you got to choose what color you want them to be.

Ex: Ki-Adi Mundi in flesh and Kominoan neck in white/black. Wink
