The one wearing Finn's jacket is an update to fix a shoulder joint problem. The band guy is a head-swap and head-hand repaint. The other two are just for fun background characters.

Rodians are my favorite aliens in Star Wars. Love these! How on earth did you get the arms out of finn's torso??

First take off Finn's jacket so it doesn't get wrecked. Then put the torso into a workbench vise. Have the figure facing sideways in the vise so the seams down the side of the torso directly take the pressure of the vise. Probably you'll need to raise the arms above the shoulder to get him to sit down into the vise. It'll sort of look like he's stuck in the vice up to his armpits and reaching for help. As you tighten the vise the seams will crack (probably the torso will crack or split and be unusable).
Once free from the broken torso you'll need to Dremel down the pegs to match the pegs that held Greedo original arms in place.

Had the parts lying around awhile, finally got around to painting this guy. Yet another fan-fic Jabba guard.

A quick head, hands, and legs swap. And some paint for a fan-fic uniformed Dressellian.
The chest, arms, and waist are from the rebel honor guard, and the legs are from Pons Limbic the cantina patron.
I love finding 2 dollar fodder figures.

One last hack job for today. This barely counts as a custom, but looks cool as a background character.
