Gamorrean Palace Guard (Star Wars) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:24131
Name:Gamorrean Palace Guard
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Star Wars
Date Added:September 10, 2010
Base Figure:ML Legendary Riders FA Thing
Height:7.00 inches
All Hail Pigs in Space.
This is my first completed Star Wars custom. Darth Vader is lying somewhere at the bottom of my fodder bin plotting his way to the top..
This is one of ML First Appearance Things that came with his legendary? um..hover bike. the hands are from the target exclusive movie hulk I used previous for Wolverage. The feet are from a grey hulk, I think one of the 5 inch scale versions.
A lot of sanding and sculpting. Lots of added epoxy to get the heavy, slow moving, Gamorrean look. Looked at lot of Gamorrean costumes that fans have made for ideas on how to take on the face. I found that the Thing's face really lent itself to the piggy look.
I did use fabric on this custom to help get the earthy leathery look. I also used some faux fur for the loin clothe. I wanted to make sure I could pose the legs for those awesome drop kicks and..well I wanted to be able to to be able to waddle with easy.
I hope you like. Comments and Feedback welcome.
you can see some work in progress pics on my facebook page.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I plan to tackle some more Star Wars customs in the future. I recall I started a Boba Fett when I first got to experimenting with action figures. It was crud :P Asch anytime your Luke thinks he is Jedi enough..just kidding. I had thought about taking some pictures with this guy eating some bacon, then realizing it was his missing cousin.

This is customizing at it's best. Taking a figure and transforming it to something so drastically different takes tremendous skill. I know you hear it all the time but you sir are my hero.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! I think might be my new favourite custom of you!!! This is a spot on recreation, and I love the scale for the marvel legends to star wars conversion! Your sculpting work is good, but almost overlooked behind great paints! Glorbes would be proud with the fabric work! You know how I am about that, and especially the faux fur, I keep that in my arsenal too!
Freaking awesome stuff!
