This is another figure that I created with some spare parts and sculpey. This was one of my most challenging figures so far. I formed his knees out of a cut-up unknown action figure belt. I cut these to shape then super-glued them to his knees and used bando glazing and spot putty to fill in the cracks. I used a rotary tool to smooth out the bumps once the bondo cured. I used small sculpey chunks glued to his hands, thighs, and shoulders to create his armor and sith amulets. I also added some small plastic scraps here and there for added details (shoulder pad, circle with chain. I fitted an old superman cape in between the pads with superglue and more bando. The last part of this custom was the painting. Here's a tip. You may want to paint the cape before you attach it permanently. This proved to be difficult because of how fragile the cape is once attached. I glued two lightsabers together to make his doublebladed. Couldn't have turned out better.

I think my favorite series of SW comics right now is the KOTOR series. Great characters, I've made a few in that timeline so far. More will be up tomorrow. Thanks for all the support. Its great hearing comments from people that are more experienced than I am with all of this custom posting.

I agree with Darththomas, I think this is your best work so far! I love this Exar Kun and now I want to make one out of my imp. knights, but I want to wait to get another two pack first. I think the paint work is really well done, and a great choice of base figure. I only know of Kun from wookieepedia and what is said about him in KOTOR, but I like the idea of him and I think this custom of him is top notch!

Ah yes, he is a Sith, but he was one of the only Sith Lord's to have blue lightsaber blades.

This one looks cool, great use of the belt on the kneepads and armour, I'd give his saber a coat of red tho he is supposed to be a sith right?, other than that I'd say this is my favourite of yours yet
