Thanks so much! I had a few hiccups, but some much needed advice from Luke Sprywalker saved the project.

Almec was a male Human from the planet Mandalore, and a one-time believer in the pacifist ways of Duchess Satine Kryze. During the Clone Wars, Almec served as the Prime Minister of Mandalore and did as he thought best to watch over and represent the interests of Mandalore. His dedication became his undoing, however; when Mandalore declared neutrality in the Clone Wars and the planet became cut off from Galactic Republic aid. Almec then established a black market trade network to bring much-needed goods to the Mandalorian people. These smugglers poisoned the people of Sundari with toxic tea, putting numerous children in the hospital. Almec was exposed as the leader of the black market network and summarily imprisoned for his crimes.

When Darth Maul took over Mandalore, Maul broke Almec out of prison and reinstated him as Prime Minister, with Almec declaring loyalty to Maul and his Death Watch allies. Following Maul's capture and imprisonment by Darth Sidious, Almec saw to it that Maul was rescued and brought back to the Death Watch.

This is a 100% sculpted action figure made with ProCreate used on a Clone Wars Savage Opress action figure. The thighs of the figure were shortened to reduce the height of the figure and the hands were switched out with the hands from a realistic version of Count Dooku that came with Force Flipping Attack. The tabards on the figure were manufactured from the skirt that was already present on the Savage figure. From there it was all handcrafted.

With Rogue One only two weeks away, we felt it was about time we posted our first custom action figure from the new film. When deciding what character to make the decision was pretty easy. Many of you wouldn't know this, but Dad is a huge kung fu aficionado. We have a few hundred kung fu movies in our home library and Donnie Yen's movies are in abundance. When we found out he was going to be starring in Rogue One, we knew it was a movie we wanted to see based on his appearance alone.

We still can't believe this character 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.

If only Hasbro provided consumers with a greater selection of super-articulated figures, or at the very least treat their consumer of the Black Series version of the Rey with all three heads for the character to justify the premium prices that they charge. This version of the desert scavenger is just a simple head swap using the 5POA "Rogue One" Rey (Jakku) head with the Black Series body of Rey. The combination looks great and the most lengthy part of the customizing process was opening the package for the two figures the parts came from.

One day we would love to see Hasbro return to a larger super-articulated line and ditch the 5POA line all together. Until then, we have to create figures like this Jakku Rey by purchasing two figures to create the one we really want.

WOW!!!

I've been poring through my collection of old Jedi and other figures to try to figure out what the best recipe would be for a custom Chirrut!

Yours is, true to fashion, absolutely spectacular. Perfect job! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!!

Could you share your recipe?

So much better with some articulation :) Well done! Let's hope Hasbro will include him inn the SA line sometime in the spring (wishful thinking). Also, good work with Rey, I hope to make the same modification soon, but will probably repaint the face.
This hobby just gets curiouser and curiouser!
