We still can't believe the character Chirrut Îmwe wasn't released in Wal-mart's Black Series line because an action figure of a martial arts master with barely any articulation is just outright sinful. Well, leave it to the customizers to correct yet another huge oversight by Hasbro.

We tried to use as much of the original figure as we could when putting this figure together. We kept the head, upper torso and forearms of the original figure as well as the slip over removable cape. The legs and lower torso we stole from a Vintage Darth Maul. The shoulders, upper arms, and elbow joints were from a Clone Wars Count Dooku action figure. Dad created the soft goods from scratch and he used some ProCreate to blend the original forearms to the elbow joints and to recreate the shoulder sash on Chirrut Îmwe's left arm. Dad used some Midnight Blue paint to match Dooku's arms to the original figure.

Dad also added articulation at the left wrist and on both forearms. He drilled completely through the shoulders of the torso and added a cylinder of plastic with some holes drilled in at the end to attach the shoulder joints to the sockets that were originally designed for the swivel joints of the once 5POA action figure. Now the figure is articulated so we can place him into all the dynamic poses we always wished we could.

Chirrut Îmwe was a blind human male, born on the moon Jedha, and a spiritual warrior-monk who was active during the days of the Galactic Empire. Alongside his friend and protector, Baze Malbus, he and other members of a rogue group of Rebels fought in an effort to steal the plans of the first Death Star.

The Chirrut Imwe figure is awesome, guys! Using the Maul & Dooku figures for joints was very clever. Great job getting this together so perfect!

Imperial Gonk

Here is a scratch-built Imperial Gonk. It was aboard the Deathstar.

If anyone is good at drawing programs, and would like to collaborate, I'd like to make a (free) paper model of the cargo containers for R1.
I have all the measurements and reference photos already, I need somebody to color it, tweak it and make it into a file.

If not, I will have my hand made one made available to anyone that wants it.
Here's what I have done so far.

Found providing refreshments to off duty Imperial officers in Gesh's Tapcafe on Jedha, The Decraniated servants are rumoured to have been unwillingly sold into servitude after having had the fugitive Roofoo (aka Dr. Cornelius Evazan) perform surgery upon them.
For a bit of fun, I thought that I would try to put this figure together in the 5 Points Of Articulation and minimal paint application style of current Rogue One figures.

That's a nice one there, The Decraniated. One that I doubt would ever get done in the Hasbro line.

Now, it makes me wonder what Evazan did to the top half of her head?

G2-1B7 G2-1B7 is Saw Gerrera's medical droid. G2-1B7 has been modified to bypass programming that would prevent a 2-1B from dispensing drugs at dangerous intervals. The droid is baffled that Saw is still alive

Good entries so far!

Here is Moroff, from a concept sketch. This is a great way to change up any extras you have from army building the Scarif Trooper.
I changed the mouth and added a tiny pouch on his arm.

A recent convert to the Disciples Of The Whills, Silvanie Phest was regularly searched by Imperial Stormtroopers on Jedha for fear that she might be hiding fugitives beneath her crimson robes.
