Hey everyone! BrikSmith Customs here! Sorry it’s been awhile, I got busy with school and blogging fell to the wayside, and I haven’t picked it back up again until now. During the past few months, I’ve made some considerable improvements and changes to how I make my customs, so they are a much higher quality.
These are printed decals. Decals are computer images that you print out. They have all the marking and symbols printed so you don’t have to draw or paint them. Water-slide decals are a thin plastic film over a backing with a water-based glue holding them together. When you dip it in water, the glue softens enough to get it off the backing and onto the LEGO piece. The glue hardens on the LEGO piece, creating high-quality customs.
This is my custom Phase 2 Captain Rex from seasons 4 and 5 of The Clone Wars. He was made using water-slide decals made by Laurengolego99. The kama was a LEGO fabric kama from the ARC Trooper Battle Pack painted blue around the edges. The pauldron was printed onto photo paper and cut out. The helmet is a Clone Army Customs (CAC) printed helmet and I added the weld-marks. He also carries 2 CAC DC-15 pistols.
The head is a LEGO Captain Rex head with the neck black to complete the full body glove that the clones wear.
Here are some alternate views:
Thanks for reading! I’ll be getting my YouTube account going soon where you can see a full 360 view of the figure along with a review. Check back for some more updates and figures!
