I made a few more vintage-style customs





For the 2 X-wing pilots, I sculpted the helmets right on top of the head, trying to match the look of the Luke X-wing helmet.

Rebel Trooper
- DS Commander head
- General Madine body
- Lando arms

General Rieekan
- Anakin head
- Han Hoth body

Wedge
- Han head with sculpted helmet
- X-wing Luke body

Biggs
- Lando head with sculpted helmet
- X-wing Luke body

Luke Ceremony
- Bespin Han body
- Luke head
- lightsaber from Bespin Luke (shaved off leg)

Han Stormtrooper
- Bespin Han head
- Stormtrooper body

Loving the fleet trooper - crime that it was missed from the line and still harbour a hope that one day Hasbro may produce a vintage one !

Going to have a crack at one myself sometime soon, so appricate the parts list - was thinking Endor Han or even Nein Numb for body, but GM looks pretty good too.

Doug,

Great work as usual. The Sculpting on the helmets is a great idea and you captured the style well. Lando to Biggs really works a lot better than i would have thought.

I like the RFT, but I'm not sold on the lando arms... They feel too blousy, for a solider. Since you'll likely tackle this one again wink.gif, I'd suggest maybe B-Wing Pilot arms or Bespin Guard arms -- either should work well with the torso and be easy to come by.

General Riekeen's colors are awesome! I kind of wish you had modified the scarf into a collar, but it still works without that mod.

The Luke and Han are both very sharp.

Awesome job.

I don't know Ty, the way the Stormtroopers totally wiped them out within minutes leads me to believe they not only wore blouses, but they wore pink panties too.

Great job Doug!
