Altering the Looks

 Before you Begin:

Below is a list of toy spaceships that one might consider using for his/her Star Wars custom ships.

Many of these older vehicles can be found for very little money in thrift stores, flea markets, and other secondary markets.”

Buzz Lightyear Spaceship

(Thinkaway) A good ship for making “escape pod” ships, because of it’s small size.

X-Men Blackbird Jet

(Toy Biz) An awesome ship. I can think of a million things I’d wanna do with it.

C.O.R.P.S: S.T.A.R. Force ships

(?) Once again, good for making “escape pods” or “land rover” things.

Starship Troopers T.A.C. Fighter

Good for a small ship or a the front half of a skipray blastboat. Seats mis-scaled to SW figures.

Buck Rogers Fighter

Scaled to SW. About the size and general shape of a snowspeeder. Good for an airspeeder.

Lost In Space Jupiter2

Mis-scaled. Makes a small saucer-shaped vehicle.

Xyber9 small vehicles

Make swoops and speder bikes.

Various old G.I.Joe vehicles.

Perfectly scaled. Can provide seats, engines, wings, canopies, controls, and bodies for many SW style vehicles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Terrordome

Makes excellent Ion Cannon. (…Ok, that’s not really a vehicle….)
