    Modified Action Figures

    I was not sure if there is already a thread on this so forgive me for starting this.
    Until I get my 1:1 pieces to build my full size mandalorian suit.I have been modify my extra kenner/hasbro figures to get hands on inspriation to the direction I will go.
    The following are pictures of what I feel is the look I plan to make,hopefully being done by this time next year.


    If it is ok,everyone else share your photos of your modified action figure.I was not sure if the is a area here at the "Dent" for the action figures.

    I had two POTF Bobas and I wanted to see if I could improve on the look a little. Here are some shots of a POTF Boba I changed up.

    Re: Modified Action Figures

    Ok, I can dig this thread. I do a little bit of work with toys, not so much repainting action figures but mainly art toys. Here's 2:



    It's my custom Mandalorian, I named him "Olin Grey" after a WWII war hero I heard about. I think it turned out ok, although looking back I should've put more armor on.


    And the theres this:


    Urban Art Bomber Fett, done in my signature colorway.

    Thanks for looking.

    Re: Modified Action Figures

    Those are some cool customs figures!

    I have yet to do my custom mando as an action figure, although I fully intend to sometime in the near future. I've been busy with other projects. I do have a figure I made of the clone commander I'd like to put together as a wearable costume some day.

    This is Commander Sid of the 442nd Siege Battalion

    Thanks! I like your custom clone unit. What species if the Jedi meant to be? Or is he just a human with facial tats?

    I haven't been on custom figure boards lately (because of the costuming and doing merch for MM) but I used to be on the YakFace boards a lot. I try to only use one or two boards to keep my confusion to a minimum.

    Re: Modified Action Figures

    yeah i only EVER use 2 boards...that way you get a good mix of comments and feedbacks while not being swamped by too many lk...the jedi is a human with tats...he's inspired by a dark jedi/sith guy i saw in this fan film:-

    Re: Modified Action Figures

    Does this count? I took 3 different Jango's to make one that would fit in the box. Seeing that my 501st card was not a TK, I had to change it.

    Re: Modified Action Figures

    That's cool! Ya know, you could pretty easily print up a label and replace the "Stormtrooper" with "Jango Fett" and paste it over the card in the front. It'd complete the whole package.

    I agree with Clay... Those troopers are slick. I've really been wanting to get into 12" SW customs.
