Repositioned 12" Battle Droid
« on: June 22, 2003, 01:11 PM »
Here's a pic of my repostioned Battle Droid. A fairly easy custom. I cut the right arm at the shoulder and drilled a hole in it and one in the arm. Used a steel pin to attach. Also painted the Blaster. I'm going to paint it Red with Silver hightlights.
But I need to get the paint. I will post pics as soon as it's done...  ;)

How cool is that!!  Too bad the bad plastic Hasbro uses made the knees a little in-bent!

Thanks bud.. ;D   Actually I bent the knee's to look like that.  It comes with straight legs and looks way too phoney.

W  :o W!  Thats looks way awesome with that paint job. Interesting to see the difference in the 2 Battle Droids. Hard to believe that they are the same figure.  8)

Bob, that is awesome!  You did a great job on that... looks like it's a life-size BD right out of the movie.

I concur. (I think I spelled tha right)

Thats a great idea. My only wish is that I had picked one up when I had the chance.

No such luck.

It Surprises me that Hasbro never made one actually...

But Yours is better than whatever crap they'd spill out..

I really like the Red you chose, it fits perfectly pretty much, heh.

Now all you need is an army of these and your set... ;)
