Saga '02-'04 / Re: Who's Left From Hoth?
« on: August 12, 2003, 07:39 PM »
Everyone forgot a Rebel on Hoth who got a good chunk of screen time, Wedge's gunner and Rogue Squadron hero, Wes Janson. It would also be certainly nice if we got a Dack Ralter on a single card or as part of some sort of Rebel pilots army builder set. Could you imagine getting say Luke, Wedge, Dack, and even Janson in a 4pack similar to the Stormtrooper set, now that would be sweet!

Vintage Kenner / Re: One leg longer than the other

I have a removable limbs C-3PO in the same condition, his left leg is slightly shorter than the right, so he has to sorta lean on Jabba in my Jabba's palace diorama. I always found it to be an interesting quirk and figured that there might have been a difference in the size of molds used at whatever factory my 3PO came from.

Nice vintage display case Chris, I've been thinking of doing something like that, but I got most of my vintage mixed into dioramas that I'm not sure I want to remove em all.

I'm down to needing 10 figures (sans variants) from the movie lines. Ok 9, but I think Blue Snaggletooth is sufficiently different from the red figure that it isn't a variant so much as just two figures with the same name. I'm currently in the hunt for Blue Snag, Amanaman, Yak Face, Stormie Luke, Han Carb, Popup Saber R2, A-Wing Pilot, Romba, Lumat, and Imp Gunner. And when I say I'm in the hunt, I mean to say that one day I'll be able to justify spending $40+ for a single figure   :-\

From my experience so far in popping the arms of "action feature plagued" figures is that the "joint" for the arms is obviously not a normal peg, but it is still the general shape of a peg and with a little cutting and sanding you can get  a nice arm to work with. Case in point the left arm for Kit Fitso, I used his arms to make a better Mace Windu, but the left arm was so screwy, the "peg" for the action feature was soooo huge, so I had to do a lot cutting and sanding just to get a good general shape, but once I did get the shape I was looking for, it looked nice and smooth against the Mace torso. I agree with JJ, if you got an extra $2 head on over to KB and grab a Kit and just take him apart and experiment with him, you could get some nice results.

I'd have to agree with JJ and say altering the pose of the 3PO droids legs will be next to impossible, due to the rigid plastic used, without doing some extensive work to the legs. You could try popping the legs out of the pelvis, then using some sculpey (or other modeling clay) work a new hip region for the droid to get a different stance. I'm not sure what else could help you out in this case, though I just came across an idea as I was about to hit the post button.

Perhaps you could pop the legs off and replace them with a more versatile leg like say a GI Joe figure's leg and then use the removable panels from the Ep2 C-3PO and glue em on the Joe legs and just repaint. Not sure how that would look, but it could be a start to something. Good luck!
