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!

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.

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!
