Darth Daddy is still on break so I have been doing what I can to keep the blog going.

This is definitely the most difficult paint job I think I have ever had to do. Between the wing pattern on the jetpack, and the convor on the shoulder pad, the extremely small details were quite the challenge. All the hard work only made me love the action figure more when I finally completed her. I chose not to add articulation to this figure, because in the end, I thought adding articulation might hurt the final product more than it would help it. The joints I had available were just too big to add to the skinny frame and would have ruined her silhouette.

I had to completely resculpt Sabine's hair and add armor to her shins. I also had to do some modifications to tailor fit Commander Cody's jetpack to my Sabine figure. I then utilized magnets to make the jetpack attach to her back so it had the option of being removable.

She came a long way from the Season 2 Sabine Wren action figure we received Hasbro and I couldn't be happier with the results!

The Darth Sidious action figures from the Revenge of the Sith line were almost all released as statuettes with very little articulation. A few action features maybe, but he was pretty much solid plastic from the waist down. I always wondered what an action figure of the character from this film would look like if it were to be released in the modern Vintage Collection.

I used the hood and tabard of the ROTS Emperor Palpatine that turn into Darth Sidious. The body and head of the Darth Sidious are from the Vintage Collection were used to make the new version of the Dark Lord of the Sith. All I had to do was sew a new robe for him to wear. I lucked out finding some heavy red suede-like material to fabricate it from.

The pink around his eyes is present, but unfortunately didn't photograph all that well due to wonky lighting in the photoshoot by yours truly.

Thanks! I wanted to create a more articulated version of the character from this time period.

This 3.75" super-articulated figure is as easy to make as it gets. Just take a Black Series 3.75" ROTJ Chewbacca and give it the bandoleer of the Force Link 2.0 Chewbacca from the Solo toy line. The goggles are from the Target Exclusive Vandor-1 Playset Chewbacca. With all the newly assembled parts you get an easy, no-paint-kitbash custom action figure of your favorite Wookiee in his latest film appearance just in time for Friday's digital release of the film!

I hope we eventually get this figure in the Vintage Collection. We're huge fans of the film here at home, and we'd love to pose him with our Vintage Han Solo and soon to be released Lando Calrissian action figure from this film.

Miraj Scintel was a female Zygerrian who served as the Queen of Zygerria during the Clone Wars. Seeking to rebuild the Zygerrian Slave Empire that was shut down by the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic, Scintel allied Zygerria with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. She was betrayed by her Prime Minister, Atai Molec and then killed by Count Dooku.

We've been wanting this character added to our action figure collection for years now. Every time we looked at our display shelf full of scum and villainy that appeared on The Clone Wars, we always felt there was a gaping hole without her there beside all our other custom creations.

To make this action figure, I used a Clone Wars Assaj Ventress action figure. We replaced her lower legs with the boots of a Clone Wars Shaak Ti, and the hands with the hands from a Clone Wars Aurra Sing. From there the action figure was completely resculpted to match Queen Miraj's appearance in the show.

Both the Convor and the hilt of her electro-whip were fabricated by hand and sculpted in ProCreate. The yellow electricity was taken from a Comic Pack Lumiya action figures accessory.

Now that she is done, one more hole on our display shelf has been filled and we can't wait to fill the next one ;)

All are great customs and make me want to try them myself :) Can't find clear pictures on the internet, but is the cape of Dooku close enough to the one Becket had in "Solo"? And I purchased the Chewie bust-up, but now I can't find a SA Chewbacca for a descent price, shame :(
The Sabine mini-collection is pure delight :)
