Heh heh, a new use for the Ash head.  Looks pretty good, but I might suggest shortening his neck just a tough.

The Bultar Swan rocks.  Excellent use of parts here (what head is that?) and looks like you are right, that could be a perfect base for a Jocasta Nu figure.

NIce Kyp Durron. But wheres his BOOMSTICK? :P That Anakin body has a great sculpt to it but the articulation on it sucks. The Ash head works.

But my favorite is Bultar Swan. She looks excellent. Though I have read about her Im not very familliar with the character. You have done a great job on ther though. this is definately one I would have bought in the store. Great job on the both of them.

So I kept looking at my Dagobah Luke. The more I looked at him the less I liked him :-\ So I decided to go with my original plan from months ago and make a Bespin Luke instead.

I love this pic because it reminds me of when he's walking into the cave on Dagobah

Pretty simple recipe. He's a Saga Bespin Luke with a Saga Dagobah Luke head. Dagobah Luke's head was cut off at the neck (to preserve articulation) and then inserted into the collar piece of the Bespin Luke. The cool thing about this one is that he now has an alternate tourniquet hand (or lack thereof) and an alternate head so you can do this famous scene...

I'm very happy with him now, I'm calling this one done. :)

Very Nice lestat. I love seeing customs of this figure. It was my favorite version of luke as a kid.
I would and have bought every hasbro/kenner version of bespin luke.

Great work as usual.

P.S. I wanted to make sure you got the second set of helmets? Let me know please.

Nice clean swap on the neck... did you remove the action feature or is it still enabled?

Glassman- Thanks, he was one of my favorite's too. it's really a wonder we haven't gotten more figures of him. I'm hoping for a Luke Skywalker's evolutions set to be coming down the pike soon so here's hoping :)

Tyrazken- I left the action feature in since it didn't really hinder anything

Chewie- Thanks man, Most of the characters I'm interested in really good versions of are OT characters.

Love the bespin Luke. Definitely an improvement on the figure as well as a great idea with the head swap thing.

Hemble- Yeah, I think Hasbro really does have some great sculptors that aren't always consistent throughout the figure. Sometimes you get a great face and a mediocre body or vice versa.

BrentS- The simple ones are always fun because they are done so fast! :)

Commander Miseria- Thanks!
