Akials Vintage Customs

Post by Akial on Mon Dec 07, 2015 8:13 pm

Here I'll show you my vintage customs. A lot of these I made in the late eighties. At that time I used only vintage star wars stuff. When I restarted in customizing a few years ago I kept that. I just want to make customs with the stuff I had as a kid. No POTF 2, GI Joe (never had these) or anything else modern. I really tried to use all the parts left over from a figure. no remains. This is getting a funny game. Wink

Starting with the very beginning of ANH. Captain Antilles in Vaders fangs. Instead of Han Bespin I used the original Han because he is more tiny at Vaders arm and his right arm is in an nice position for the taggling. I used a wire around Antilles neck and stick it into the Laser arm of Vader.
And guys before you have any strange ideas. No (!) Antilles is not peeing against Vader. st00pid That is just his right Hand Wink Just realized it. lol!

Next is Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru. I took a Luke Jedi knights body for owen with an madine head. The remaining head I took for aunt Beru. Funnily Luke Jedi and Aunt Beru share the absolutely same hairstyle. Even the parting has the same direction. I  just took a little bit red for the lips to make it a Little bit more feminine. Body Comes from 4-Lom (I still call him so) and the legs are cut off Bibs.

Cantina Guys. Bo Shek and Hrchek Kal Fas are just mixed from Bossk and Han Bespin. Just shortend the limbs of Bossk to achieve the right size.

I really like Bo Shek and Kal Fass. Just mix up to Figures and get two knew. Nothing left over. Very Happy
Next is Wuher and Dr. Evazan. It is a shame there never was a Dr. Evazan Figure. He is pretty cool guy. Well what I had in mind from the movie (at the time I made these there was no Internet) was his pig nose. Therefore I took the ugnaughts head for Dr. Evazan buzzing
Wuher is a quite Slim Version. At first I wanted to take a rancor keeper, but on the other hand this is real vintage style, isn't it? afro

Here we go. I needed a Pruneface Body for another Custom and thought about what to do with the left over head. Than I had the Idea of doing a Wioslea with the Pruneface head. And it was a good chance to learn how to paint eyes. yay Doesn't matter for this character. Body is from an emporer. Finally I really like her. Wink And it is vintage style IMO

This one is my favorite. Garindan. Just used the left over emporers head from Wioslea with the DSC body which remained from the Antilles Custom, with a Vader Cape. Looks fucking great thefinger Unfortunately I forgot to add a Communicator from a CCP.

these are outstanding custom figures Dirk, I really love the Vader and Antilles custom, what a cool idea cheers
The Garindan is really well made too, and Dr Evazan is a very clever idea, using an ugnaught head clapping clapping

bowwing

Wioslea is cool and certainly done in a very vintage style cheers

but your Garindan is probably the coolest rendition I have seen by any customizer of that character afro

Thank s to James and Patrick. Very Kind words from you. bowwing
Here is another guy from Tatooine. As there were so many Figures made by Hasbro modern lines from a-second-in-the-background-cantina-Aliens, I thought this guy should have his figure as well. The original Jabba played by the actor Declan Mullholland.

fantastic customs Dirk, Tarkin is definitely one of the figures they Kenner should have produced first time around.

Your Tarkin looks like a customized lando head?

Last one from ANH at first. General Dodonna. Again used an ugnaught head with a Ben Body. I needed the pig nose and the Ben head for other customs. So Dodonna is just mixed up from the leftovers. But he has a nice goat stick to show the guys how to Smash up that Death Star. Smile
