This is my latest custom. I chose Anakin Skywalker because he was a common and cheap figure. The tricky bit was what costume?! After a search I found this. It's his snow gear from an episode of the CLONE WARS, where he and Obi-Wan visit a Hoth-like snow planet called ORTO PLUTONIA. One of the series animators says the costume is based on Han's Hoth costume from ESB.

The sculpt itself was my biggest undertaking yet: Moving every limb, removing and adjusting his head, adding to and rotating the base. Taking the sabre out of 2 hands and into 1. And of course sculpting his actual new clothes. It was fun though, and a complete transformation.
I wanted to keep the pose not aggressive, as in the episode they don't draw their sabres and are present to negotiate a peace treaty, not fight. I thought he may be using it like a torch/flashlight in a blizzard. The way I twisted the base and lifted his right foot, means it looks like he's stepping up an incline.
Final thing I did was remove his facial scar, as at this point he hasn't received it. ( this appears later in Revenge of the Sith, and had been given to him by Asajj Ventress in a comic book side story.)
