This guy has taken me an absolute age to finish, well one year and 5 months to be precise. Granted I've been through two house moves and a new born born baby in that time but still. He's been sitting in the graveyard patiently waiting his turn for completion and finally here he is. Jango Fett in that strange 8" scale that Bandai in all their wisdom decided to use for the ill fated Thundercats classic line. Now I always thought the Lion-O was good enough to stand alone but add Tygra and the two just look strange in a collection, like a line that's just waiting to be complete but never will be. Sooo Tygra went to the fodder box. Then one day whilst having a shower I'd eyed the mrs' Jango Fett bubble bath bottle, it had long since been used up so I didn't feel bad stealing it. I compared it to a few base bodies then out came Tygra...... perfect match!!. Anyhoo enough waffling, here's the recipe.

Recipe:
Base body = 2011 Bandai Thindercats classics Tygra, heavily re-sculpted on every part of the figure.

Armour, jetpack, belt and boots = Bubble bath Jango Fett, cut to fit and sculpted to blend. The armour on the upper thighs is all sculpted as is the butt armour.

Holsters and shoulder armour = Magic repair tape for clothing, hand stitched.

Guns = Bubble bath Jango Fett, shaved the hands off the handles and resculpted them with a metal nut inside.

Wires on arms = Headphone wire

Hands = Bandai Tygra re-sculpted with a magnet in each to hold his guns and keyrings.

Painted and sealed with Games workshop and Vallejo products


So much work went into this one but i'm more than pleased with the results. I did initially think about making him into Bobba but then I thought hey why not give Jango some love, he is after all the blue print for the entire clone army and after all no Jango... no Bobba. Hope you enjoy taking a peak, till next time..............

I don't know how I missed this awesome custom. Incredible job with the shampoo bottle head. Very creative.
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Cheers buddy, like I said before I just couldn't throw the bottle away but was sick of seeing it so I had to do something with it

This is a MASTERPIECE! I just googled the Jango Fett bubble bath bottle to get an appreciation for what you've done here....this is BRILLIANT!!! A true labor of love, bro! You ROCKED it!
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Hahaha, that's proper research to gain a proper recognition of work done and I appreciate it very much dude. We'd had that bottle for years and I just couldn't throw it away (it's a Mandolorian, you don't throw Mandos away) At the same time I was sick of moving it every time I had to clean the bathroom, something had to be done

Very cool man! I love everything you did with it and you can really see the heart and soul poured in to it! Great work
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Cheers buddy, lots of hard work but I reckon it paid off in the end, not 100% happy with the head but I'm probably never gonna display him with his helmet off so it's all good.

That is spectacular!
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Why thankyou

Crazy-cool work on Jango; what a total transformation from the base figure!
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Yeah the sanding was the worst part, the base is pretty much 90% covered, well worth the effort though in my opinion.
HeartBreakCustoms - Friday, October 11, 2013
awesome I love innovative customs!
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Always looking for inspiration dude, this one's unique as it's the only one I've been inspired to do whilst naked in the shower
VicVeinz - Friday, October 11, 2013
Darth you turned a ugly thundercats figure into a masterpiece..incredible!!
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Yeah that Tygra was horrible, I only bought him hoping the line would get finished. As soon as I learnt it was dead he went to the fodder bins.

Darththomas - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Haha, tell me about it dude, I didn't realize how long this guy had been in the graveyard till I went through my WIP thread. I'm happy with the way he turned out.
