Here's a couple of improvements I made a little bit back.

I used the great base of the VSTC Greedo - though I've always been a little disappointed in the effort put forth on the eyes of the figures - -- they just don't look very lively.



So anyway, I took some very small rhinestones from a local Michael's craft store, then hollowed out the eye sockets, along with some added space for the rhinestones, and carefully cut the circles to a smaller dimension to fit them in.  I added a small bit of aluminum tape backing, but the head works just as it did before - only with the look of the reflective eyes that the Rodians have in the movies.

Hope you like them.

Great tip. I might have to try that myself. Did you put them in from the inside?

Woah...at first I thought your idea was kinda lame, but looking at the pics, it actually looks cool! It really does make Greedo look more "life-like". :)

Corobb - I forgot to mention that, yes I did put them in from the inside, so that they didn't looked "tacked on."

Roton - I'll post a pic of the movie Greedo  --  - I think that it gives a bit of the look of the eyes in the movie.
