They aren't a racist organisation, you just can't tell because most of them are wearing helmets.

Also damn you Tom I want a Roboskull now Laughing

There's some fracking awesome customs on Blood for the Baron from the same guy who did the shadow walker that you posted.

That's pretty f'n badass!

I still have a vintage AT-AT I bought at an estate sale. It's pretty bare. No panels or accessories, so I was thinking about dropping in a boombox,

You almost had me. Because I have seen knock off items at TRU before. Like the 15 vehicle Voltron.

But this looks cool! I'm not so sure about that smiling skull front though.
I always wondered how people are able to make molds for these things?

The customiser didn't make the mold. It's an old space ship from the series.

BUT I can make plastic molds it aint hard, you just need a few grand for the machinary and be good at wood or clay sculpting Laughing I used to do it all the time. My greatest glory was a Plastic King Kong with arms like a melted turd Very Happy

Aren't these things sculpted in clay or resin first, baked and then its used as a mould?

that is what I always thought. I've seen custom star wars ships where there had to be some sort of molds used or at the very least been some way to make things joined or fused together seamlessly.

So that skull ship was just added to the At At head? It wasn't some red painted Tie Fighter with a skull face fused to it? Still looks cool and goofy at the same time.

It was a Roboskull from the 1982/3 european Action Force line by Palitoy before they just started re-using GI Joe ARAH molds, here is what it looked like.
