Hi everybody. This is my third custom. I always liked the SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE FIGURE Luke Skywalker (In Imperial Disguise). The original was very nice but to "static" for me. I wanted to articulate him more and so I decided to do my own Luke IID. But it wasn't that easy as it looks like (paintin a figure red, give him a luke head and ready)
The first try was a new clone with a removable helmet cause the ball-jointed neck at these troopers are so small that my Luke head would fit.. with a little help of the dremel ;)
When I was done, Luke looked like an anorexic trooper. Not the result I was lookin for. I wanted a strong body so I took the body of a 212th batallion Trooper of the vintage collection and started painting again. The legs were more thicker than the other ones and the whole trooper looks like a trooper not like a skinny guy.
After painting I took the head of the Luke Skywalker Endor capture and the Shadows of the Empire Luke Skywalker was ready... almost...
Somethignw as missing so I took the original SOTE Luke and got the little cloak on the back, removed the pin to stick it in the back and with some glue my new Luke got the cloak of the original one.
Well, the figure was done, I am happy so here are the pictures :)
