After messing around with my Stormtrooper for a couple days I realized that a Luke Skywalker Stormtrooper could still be a long way off. I started to panic... I freaked!!! I grabbed my dremmel and got to grinding. I bored the neck hole on the Luke Skywalker head to fit the Stormtrooper peg. I covered the ball joint in baby powder and blew the excess off then filled Luke's head with hot glue. I pressed them together and within minutes I had a tight functional custom ball joint... Good as bought.

Fantastic!!! Any possibility of doing another as a commission?

Ooohh. With supplied parts maybe but with these guys being pretty hard to get a hold of I couldn't sign on to chase these boogers down again. We've got 10 targets in our 30 mile area... Talk about a goose chase.

So how did you get all the sand paint apps off it?
I'm thinking of cleaning mine up and I figure there's two ways to go about it.
a) paint over it in white
b) take off the brown with nail polish remover or other solvent.
Nice piece btw.

I used a lacquer thinner, Qtips and paper towels. Used for cleaning brushes and tools. Knocks it right off. Watch the black though. It's pretty thin paint.

Ah. Yes, now I see your Stormtrooper where you explain how you cleaned it up. Thanks for the info - I'm gonna try that now.

Beat me to it. It's my current project. But is the helmet removable?
GeekSummit - Wednesday, August 14, 2013
No but that's definitely the next step. Figure I'd cast it. Though it does look like his head is slightly deeper than the helmet too.
Kimota! Customs - Wednesday, August 14, 2013
It's not. You can dremel it out
GeekSummit - Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Yeah. I get nervous doing that. If I go too far I'm out a perfectly good head. No way to go.

You'll be fine. I did it. It does get thin though
GeekSummit - Wednesday, August 14, 2013
But I figure if I make a mold then IV got helmets to spare on demand. Keeps me in my comfort zone.

Let me know if you decide to sell casts.

Werd.

I figured this would be the first Black Series custom we'd see. Looks great. I'm worthless with a dremmel, so I'll hold out for the inevitable release. Maybe a Luke/Han 2-pack someday?

I KNEW it would happen sooner or later! Nicely done!
