ive always wanted to make one. well having decided to put the customs ideas to bed i thought i was done. however i came across a loose beater potf2 1998 leia cermonial for £1 from a carboot sale a couple weeks ago ive decided to de-modern it and make it vintage.....

Chris, Sounds interesting. It might require a lot of trimming and sanding to get rid of the big shoulders and arms?

what a horrible figure. infact the potf2 line is so musclely! i cant work with it. a vintage leia bespin torso will be used for this custom. ive seen one on RS wich ive taken inspiration from.

day 1 boil and pop and arms sanded so there are no crease lines [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

What head will you be using? You might have to deal with the neck post if it's a Leia original head.

Just catching up with this thread. Some fantastic customs Chris cheers The King Terak figure turned out really well. I also love the 2-1b Macquarie concept figure clapping I look forward to seeing how the ceremonial Leia custom turns out Smile

day 5 : bracelet changed to make it more in scale to the figure and belt. neck peg has been shortened

Nice updates Chris. clapping

That's the problem working with 3 3/4" scale toys. Once sculpts are applied, the might need some adjusting. Keep up the great work. It's coming along nicely. cheers

while buying more primer from my local model shop to do the leia.

i had a look round in the back room there was a box on the floor full of airfix plane ships models etc....at the bottom i found this. first of all i spied the takara logo on the back of the box. i know its japanease because of the takara starwars figures ! the artwork is awesome and it looked vintage it didnt look like 90s model or 2000s it screamed 1970s1980s i was right its from 1981! ha ha NOS (new old stock) and it cost me £1.99 score. its a small diecast robot type thing. well chuffed :-)

Interesting Takara Robot. It's not very big, compared to the AA battery in the one picture. Those 2 little figures that come with it, must be damn tiny.
