THE DAGOBAH COLLECTION - General Kahn

The Dagobah Collection



[700][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/700]




I've been working on this set for quite some time but just haven't really had the time to sort it photograph it and post it. I basically wanted to create a set of figures from Dagobah. The only character missing is Yoda, simply because there didn't seem much I could do that the Kenner figure didn't achieve. I am at some point probably going to do a 'backpack' Yoda on a Luke to add him in some way, just haven't got round to it yet Smile

This is basically an upgraded version of Luke X-Wing and accurate to the Dagobah scene, mainly the addition of the Holster belt. The belt addition is constructed from Milliput. The paint scheme has been altered to be more accurate and several minor feature from the original torso have been removed.
The Helmet is hollowed out and the head is a Luke Bespin head. The lightsaber hilt is a modern accessory.

The principal here is simple, a sticker that has a dirt line which leads up to each leg and then the legs and bottom of the torso are painted brown. Huge thank you to Clint for the sticker here. I gave him a rough design basically showing the dirt line and he produced what you see in the picture which is perfect Smile Cheers Clint..... I finally posted pics hahaha Razz

A classic custom, done many times over. It's actually pretty easy to do, just needs a steady hand with a Dremmel. Basically the entire figure is a Luke Bespin figure, The Torso has basically been smoothed down and shaped into a vest. The arms and legs are harder because the plastic is softer, but again, they have been smoothed down and shaped to make the arms look bare and in the case of the legs, all evidence of the holster removed. Ther is also the addition of front pockets which are constructed from Milliput.

This is a custom that I always thought about but never really 'thought' about if you know what I mean. One night I just completely winged it while drunk.... yet the results are pretty good and I have to say it's one of the easiest customs I've ever done and I used only an Xacto blade and glue.... That's it, nothing else, well at least for the head, I used a drill bit to make the head socket Razz
Basically I cut a Darth Vader head in half from top to bottom following the mould line. Then I sliced the front piece to remove the part of the mask you can see is removed and glued the head back together. I then sliced the front of a Luke Bespin face off and glued it inside and then shaved the back of the front mask down until it fit.... That simple!

Another easy one, just a Ben Kenobi figure repainted to more accurate colors with a darker vinyl cape (repro) I then painted the entire figure and cape with multiple layers of glow in the dark paint with the hope that it would give it a spirit look...... well, it did Smile

This is another reasonably easy custom to make, just requires a little patience with Milliput to do the front pockets. I basically removed the existing saber and holster and constructed a new holster and pockets with Milliput and then used a modern saber hilt for the belt, I also altered the pockets on the back of the belt. The hand was sliced off and I made a rod and hole to re-attach it.
