Star Wars Voolvif Monn

Aquired this figure recently after I realized one even existed of him (I was on SW hiatus for a couple of years). Anyway, as soon as I had him in hand, it became apparent he needed leg articulation. To solve the problem, I cut the lower portion where his pants end off, attached the knee joints from a Leia Boushh figure and voila!! instant better stance and articulation! The Leia knees also maintain texture to closely match the "fur" legs of the Jedi Master. I also cut away portions of the plastic tunic and used a soft goods one. I added some paint and detail as well. I really like the more uncommon alien Jedi, and this is one of my new favorites!

Star Wars Darth Malgus

This character is quickly reaching an iconic status and many customizers have taken a turn at making him so I had to give it a go! He may not be totally accurate but I think I captured the feel of the character and he sure was a fun one to make!!!

Star Wars Plo Koon

Again using the great articulation of the new Quinlan Vos figure (and his belt/tunic), I re-made Master Plo Koon. Plo is my son's favorite Jedi, so how could I not make this for him?

Star Wars Rahm Kota

Just got a Rham Kota figure in the mail and had to get to work on him! I have been wanting this figure for a long time now and when I finally got him in hand I did like him overall. However, I really like the new hip joints hasbro has been adding to some of their Star Wars figures and had to rework him with this extra articulation. As a point of interest, I found I didn't like his ribbons and removed them entirely.

Star Wars Boba Fett

This is my vision on how Boba should look. I took some creative liberties by giving Boba his Dad's pistol (since Jango lost one on Kamino). I gave him new articulated hips via a Vintage Series Bespin Luke, sculpted some pouches, used a common staple to make a functional antenna, re-did the peg on his pack to make it more secure, gave him a new cape, and re-painted and detailed the entire figure. I am very happy with this one!
