Thanks alot for the kind words. Yeah, you know, those XD arms are really awkward, but since I used their respective torso (the dremeled out jacket), I think you may be right, they might just work well for this piece. The angle of the elbow let's me put Han in this really cool gun slinger pose, like he's about to quickdraw on someone. I've never really been able to get that arm pose out of even a balljointed Star Wars fig, so I'm kind of happy about that!
Thanks for the advice on the image tags! I usually do change 'em, but last night the server was down hereat JD or something, so I was kind of in a rush and frustrated. Despite all that, I appreciate your help. It looks like D_N took care of it for me, though. Pendragon
Hey there! Yeah, that was one major concern for me, the upper arm skinniness. The shoulders are exactoed off of the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine arms, so they are a little mismatched, but to tell the truth, I measured them up (excluding balljoint) with the XD arms (whose lower parts I used) and they are about the same thickness. The balljoint extends in, and sits inside the jacket arm hole, so it can actually get clearance and connect with the original torso sockets, so I think the thinness helps in functionality for the balljoint. I'm glad you like this, though!Darth_Nirvana
Aw dude, you're a pal. Thanks for fixing that for me!Chewie
Thanks Chewie, that means alot to me coming from you. as when I first got into customizing, I've always looked up to your creative use of materials, and especially your awesome paint jobs. I really appreciate that comment!
Now, the tricky part is painting this bugger. He's got tons of joints!
