This was not meant to be a custom. I was cleaning a mint condition squid Head I had bought and, trying to remove the head, I managed to snap the neck and then when I tried to repair the body, managed to almost destroy everything else by using too high a setting on the dremel. Well, with that disaster came the chance to get a vintage looking Squid Head on a modern body. The torso and legs are Mace Windus, the arms head and accessories are vintage. I than repainted everything so you can see what a great sculpt the 83 Tessek was! Sacreligious to collectors of vintage Star Wars, yes, but I would rather have a collection of devalued figures I like than valuable ones I didnt.

Sad story with a happy ending. He looks good.

Oh dude, he looks AMAZING, you're totally right, the new paint job you did let us see a great sculpture on that vintage head. I totally agree with you, I think to have vintage figures in an awful shape definitely is not a "valuable" collection, although many times the value on a vintage figure comes from the memories you evoke with it . I ABSOLUTLY LOVE THIS FIG.

Thank you The head sculpt was ahead of its time and even without customising, the Squid Head has to be one of the best vintage figures. Hasbro could learn a trick or two from the quality of the soft goods clothing. As I never had vintage figures as a kid, I guess I am making the kind of figures I would love to have owned!
