Thanks, Phruby! Yes, he is the removable limbs C3PO, and I used that figure for that very reason. I don't have one yet, but I plan on customizing some sort of interchangable naked/costume arm.

BTW, Your 3PO was part of the inspiration for mine.

Great work Magilla!  That head looks a lot like Anthony Daniels (I thought it was the Lt. Daniel Faytonni figure at first).  I like Phruby's idea of the arms, I think those dollar-store figure arms might be good and still have a vintage feel.

Thanks, guys! I have a few arms in my fodder drawer that I think will work for this. I'll keep you updated if I finish an arm.

Well, I found the (IMO) perfect arms in my fodder drawer, a lot easier and quicker than I expected. The arms are 100% interchangable with the metallic arms, and they still maintain the same articulation. I plan on painting them a lighter tone to match the face later. LMK what you think!

He looks maybe a tad bit too muscular.  You may want to consider black paint to match the hood.

Yeah, I'm hoping to maybe dremel a some of the muscle mass away and paint it black to look he's in the black suit thing.

I just finished another unmasked figure! This one is Slave 1 pilot Boba Fett. I'm not sure if I should paint him to look like Jango, or leave him as is... what do you guys think?

I think you should leave the head as it is, it looks good, and more of a vintage feel to it.  Great work!

I like the head swap, and I agree that you should leave him as Boba Fett.
