Hi All

This figure was actually a commission job for (Josh) over on MOUSEDROID ,but ended up being a one for one project. In return for me doing this figure he's doing me a small section of a Star Trek (TWOK) bridge for me. He sent me the figure and I got started on finding pics from books and the net.

Once I found the references I wanted I started work on him, Josh wanted articulation to be on the figure still which once the armour was re-attached you still have 75%-80% articulation left. The other decision that we both tried to figure out was what type of base to do, Josh decided to leave it up to me so for me the easy choice was a Tatooine style base.

I decided on this type of base as it fits in well with any type of SW character and it sets the figure off without the base being to over powering and distracting from the figure itself. And hey Dengar would have been on some sought of desert planat once in his life.

RECIPE

Body - The body is from Sideshow Toys and it's the Bespin Luke one I liked it as it's a smaller size and works great with the armour and outfit. The head is from Hasbro and the gloves are from the Endor Soldier from Sideshow Toys.

Uniform & Equipment - The whole uniform is from Hasbro except the following, side pouches are from Endor Soldier from Sideshow Toys. The holster and pistol are from Sideshow Toys Bespin Luke, and the MG 34 is from Dragon Models. I also replaced the crappy forearm guards with guards from a Hasbro ROTS clonetrooper and added strips to that using plasti card. I aslo added leather straps to the arms, legs and crotch area.

Base - the base is from Sideshow Toys SW 1/6 line, I added marine foam on top and the side then roughly pulled pieces off and then added plaster of paris and fine sand, Once dry I painted the whole base to the desired colour.
