Another upgrade tackled recently: Han Endor.  This is Hasbro clothes and head on a Dragon body and military boots from opstoys.com.  I repainted the face and hair, added a little neck (can see the seam unfortunately), tightened up the clothes with hot glue, and added a little more waist thickness with a piece of foamie.

Mate very great looking figures the both of them the clothing looks spoton and Hans holster and belt look great and well done on using different boots the hasbro ones suck big time the new boots give them a better stance.

there are two things that I  have noticed and I apologize for the nagging.

1 - On Tarkin the Hasbro head is a little large for a Dragon Body I use sideshow toy bodies they have a leaner look to them they are also a little taller then the Dragon bods I think this would suit Tarkin way better.

2 - the faces on both figures are great looking scuplts so I was thinking maybe a wash of burnt sierra over the skin to darken it up just a little it would bring out the details much better.

and again sorry if I sound like Im nagging.

Holy crap, that Old Ben's House diorama is amazing!  If I didn't know any better, I would have thought that it was a production still or something.  What did you make those accessories (chairs, boxes, etc) out of?  Is that all styrofoam too?

I like your 12" upgrades, especially the Tarkin head repaint.  I was going to do a body switch with my Tarkin as well, but I didn't like hasbro's headsculpt, although after seeing your version, I might have to try it. 
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Both of those 12" figures look great.  However, I'm in agreement that the Tarkin body seems a little bit to small.
