hmmm maybe you should try a plastic/vinyl cape on that count dooku give it a more vintage look, the figure itself is great though!  8)

Cloth. The vinyl ties his head back into the old Obi too much. The cloth cape left no doubt that the fig was Dooku.

And I sort of envision Kenner as giving Dooku special treatment anyway; like they did Jedi Luke. :P

This is a really cool concept and a very nice mix of parts, Phruby. As to the belt making him look fat... it's not like he had the physique of an Olympian God, so I think a little girth works here.

Ya i like the cloth cape better too, the vinyl looks too much like a robe as opposed to a cape.  :-X

The Vintage Dooku looks awesome Paul! I agree with leaving the cloth cape on.
I remember my dream now.

how about the Luke Jedi ROTJ cloth cape Phruby? its about the right color too, a dark brownish color similar to a Dooku color but still vintage  :)

That would work except I think I would have to cut the hood. I'm glad you guys like it. I was a little afraid it wasn't going to look very good especially after I cracked the torso. I had to hide the damage with a little sculpty.

How did I miss that Kanos? ???

Kanos- Version 3 is my favorite yet. I really like how you managed to get the armor gloosy but the body suit still has a matte finish. I don't have any suggestions for the figure itself but I think that the weapon could be extended a little bit, it seems to be a tad short.

Dooku- Very nicely done! I think the belt look ok, it maybe is a tad to wide (from the crotch to the chest) but it really isn't that noticeable. I was going to suggest that you try an vinal cape when I read this earlier but now that you've shown a picture of him with it, I too say stay with cloth. I like Ripley's suggestion of the vintage Luke cape, but the more I look at the modern Dooku cape, the more it grows on me. I think it would be cool if you made him a saber, vintage style of course. :)

Dooku!  A character that in my opinion is a great link to the OT in the manner of the character and the actor they chose, and an excellent idea for a vintage styled figure.  Damn good idea and perfectly executed.  And I say go with the cloth cape - it's a perfect match I think.

 :P

Man, I'm mad that i missed this yesterday Phruby!!

Great dooku.  I have to agree that the vintage cape is less convincing than the cloth, and i'm not a soft good person...

I think a darker cape would be better.
Maybe that's why the vinyl one doenst work. The color is too obi wan.
Go get a binder from walmart/staples/office depot and cut the vinyl off of that. I'm sure a dark one would do the trick.


P.S.  i'll try to make the saber mold this weekend...  HO HO HO!

That is one great vintage looking Dooku M_P the cape aroungd the shoulders makes it that much mor older looking but in a 70's sought of way.

Re: Master Phruby's Customs Thread - Update Boba Fett (12/9/05)

This is a custom I've been wanting to do for a very long time. When I say Jango Fett had a flame thrower on his gauntlet, it reminded me of the vintage Boba Fett cardback. I've tried to make it as close as possible to the original cardback.
