I picked this up off eBay for pretty cheap last week and am really impressed with the final product. Anyone have any suggestions how I might go about "dirtying/damaging" his clothes to make a post Mustafar duel version?

Hmmn...maybe you could bring him out to the fire pit and let a few of the sparks and ashes do the work?  You don't want to melt him, but I'm thinking that might char his clothes a bit for you.

Some black chalk, ground up, would do some tricks if you used it sparingly too Jayson.  Be careful if you attempt any actual flame-work on the fringe/edges of his outfit to damage it.  Some materials burn quickly compared to others.  I'm sure it'd be possible though, to get a very realistic effect if you're very cautious.

Obi's robes were singed in the movie, but there were very few large "burns" on them.  A couple here and there that looked like a hole had formed from some ash or something, but that was about it.

Thanks, that's a good idea with the chalk. I was also thinking of using the bristles of a toothbrush to "flick" a diluted wash of black paint and water to get a random splattering. I'm wanting to try some sort of burning technique maybe with soldering iron to burn a few holes in the costume. I'm also going to use the water bath technique to get the clothing to lay a bit more naturally as they are a little poofy by nature.

Finished my attempt at the Mustafar Duel Obi-Wan. I'm pretty happy with the result and it's unique to my collection. Now to find a cheap ROTS Anakin. 8)



There are more pics in my customs thread.

The hilts and boots have evolved so much in Sideshow 12 inches line. The texture of the clothes is very accurate also.
