Generic Mandolorian body: TSC Carbonite Han
« on: June 2, 2006, 05:16 AM »
Did something really neat. Yup.  Really Really neat.
 I made a Mandalorian out of a TSC Carbonite Han. Looks really cool.

The drawback.  Alot of dremeling, and I mean loads of it.  As much as a armored microman custom.

The Bonuses:  The TSC Han makes the best fodder ever.  With a little dremeling or cutting on the joints, the body can accept any peg, and I mean any peg.  The legs are more picky though.

BBI, Star Wars, etc.....  Peg size is no longer an issue.

Plus the clothes can be blended to look like a tunic or a jumpsuit, short sleve, long sleve, sleveless...

Ball joint arms, swivel arms, even ball joint thighs (takes extra work though) anything is possible.

Anyways.  I dremeled out the Geonosis Flamethrower Jango and layered the armor (each piece was cut out separately) on top of the Han torso.  Looks Really cool. ;D

PS: The knee ball joints of Pilot Obi's Crappy legs make good elbows for figs with large arms, bulky clothing, or billowing shirts.  Think BBI Elite force arms. ::)

Vader:Master, my suit chafes
Palps:Do you use Darkside
Vader:Yes master
Palps:In time you will learn the true power of the darkside
Vader:Which is
To stop chafing in clothes

Okay... Well you know pictures would help prove that this is "really neat"  ;)
