Most excellent!

I wish I knew how to remove and replace heads like that.

I like it, and second the request for a pic w/out cape.  :)

It's pretty easy actually, just try the boil-n-pop method as instructed over at www.ffurg.com.

Magilla, he looks cool without the cloak, maybe even more vintage-esque.  Maybe a vintage vinul vader cape would be a good touch.

You know, given Maul's outfit being blousier above the knees, a black vinyl cape cut like vintage Lando's might actually look cool and give him the bulk around the torso created by his blousy duds. I'm just trying to think vintage...

This looks really cool.

For now, I want to stay with the cloth cape. I think I'll trim it to make it a little smaller, though.

if you want to stay with a cloth cape why not the cape that came with the ROTJ Jedi Luke, dye it black and cut off the hood part if you don't want that.

the only thing i don't care for is the silk-type material cape with the vintage style....Kenner used "cheap-y" materials like the vinyl & the "expensive" stuff was the cloth like on the Jawa or the Jedi Luke or Luke/Leia/Han Endor/Battle Poncho.

I'm not trying to be critical at all...I love what you have done with the figure itself, and if you like the silk bend-ems cape stick with it. keep up the good work.

You could also either dye or paint the vintage Royal Guard robe(s),as another alternate idea .

I think the best idea is to dye the rotj luke cape. It would fit the best with the character. I'd probably not use a ep1 maul head. It's too detailed for vintage stuff. I saw one where someone used a gi joe RoadBlock for a head, painted it black and added little horns. It had a nice vintage feel to it.

I'm not much of a fan of true vintage style figures like this but that Maul looks cool!!!  Come to think of it I'd really like it if Hasbro did something like this for the clone troopers.  I still like the old Stormtrooper and a clone would be something I'd scramble to get my hands on.

First attempt at sculpting?  Are you kidding me?  That's already fantastic!  What a great addition to the vintage line that would have been!

You're doing something I didn't think was possible... raising my interest in vintage figures for the first time in almost 20 years!

 :P

Thanks, Ron.

CHEWIE: Hehe, thanks. I'm glad you're getting interested in vints again.  :)

CHEWIE, if you don't mind, could you tell me how you paint your figures? Do you use an airbrush? I'm satisfied with the sculpt I did on the head, but the paint on the body needs a lot of work.

Thanks

Here's my second attempt at sculpting, vintage Hem Dazon. This is made from an Emperor body and a scuplted head. Pretty simple. LMK what you think!
