Nothing too fancy here, just a simple neckectomy and headswap with some minor touch-up painting.

I had no use for a "young" Luke Skywalker in my display as my "Spectreverse" is set several years after "Return Of The Jedi" so I whipped this little number up. I took the head and neck from the Comic Pack Basso figure and put them on the new "stealth suit" Luke Skywalker Comic Pack figure (Luke's flesh paint was nowhere near a match for the Basso head) as I have been trying to figure out how to have a non-Stormtrooper disquise Basso figure in my display but could not figure out which Rebel Alliance/New Republic uniform I wanted to put him in until now.



Parts:
Head/neck- Comic Pack Basso
Body/blaster- Comic Pack "stealth suit" Luke Skywalker

Simple and effective. What is the purpose of swapping out the neck as well? Does the Basso head not fit the Luke peg?

Dan,

He looks fantastic! Now I must envy both you and Paul for having one of these. He's one of my favorite characters from the comics, but I'm hesitatant to drop 13 bucks on the comic pack just to get the head (especially with the limited budget my loving wife has imposed). Will no one trade me a Basso head so I can make my own??? (Sorry, couldn't help myself).

James, if I understand it correctly, he just swapped the neck posts because they each matched the skin tones of their respective heads and made painting unnecessary.

That looks familiar...hmmm dry.gif *cough cough* CREDIT *cough cough* Nothing like your friends ripping you off.

My way around the neck issue was just to make the hole in Basso's head deeper. It's really only noticeable, the skins not matching, from the back.

I WANT THAT FRIGGIN' BLASTER!!!! I haven't seen this comic pack yet, but if I find one I'll buy it and trade off the figures to whoever wants 'em.

Sorry, anyway nice custom Dan. I'm with you, I'd rather change neck posts than try to color match skin tone for such a small area.

The pack comes with 2, his and hers. Talk to me gene, I haven't figured out what to do with the spare Deena Shan body yet, so still has the blaster ph34r.gif

Sorry, Paul, I was in a rush when doing the write-up or I would have credited you for inspiring my uniform choice. It won't happen again blushing.gif
