Head is an original sculpt from epoxy putty with vinyl "skirting", chest armour and samurai-like armour pieces are from a McFarlane Jackal Assassin. This design is inspired by the conceptual paintings of the character done by various artists (including Ralph McQuarrie) and my own ideas. Fabric and leather make up the rest of the uniform, as well as a large amount of body sculpting with epoxy putty.


Yoda
ML Franklin Richards with original head, hand and feet sculpts. The robe is fabric and leather, the belt accessories are various odds and ends, and the walking stick is a twig with epoxy putty handle.

R2 is made from .25 trinket domes, a krazy glue bottle, Alien Racer legs, and various odds and ends from the fodder bucket. 3P0 is made from a Vampire Hunter D female figure with an Ultima Online figure's hands and feet grafted on. The head and body have been re-sculpted and altered with vinyl and epoxy putty.



Nazi Rocket Commando
Designed as an adversary for my Rocketeer, this character was extrapolated from the animated propaganda short shown in the film. The base body combines a ML series 7 Ghost Rider with Namor legs. The body has been heavily resculpted with epoxy putty and the coat is leather. The mask is an origianl sculpt, and the helmet and accessories are from a Plan B Toys WW II German soldier. The Rocket pack is a Zip Line Batman accessory with pen parts added for the boosters and tanks.


Captain Algren (from The Last Samurai)
X3 Magneto with altered head, leather and vinyl armour, and resculpted arms and legs.



Samurai Warrior
ML Deathlok body, Deadpool arms, DCD Superman feet, ML Dr. Doom head. The helmet is from a McFarlane Jackal Assassin, and the mask is a part from a McFarlane Lotus figure. The armour is scratch-built from leather, vinyl, and pin heads (an idea I swiped from Joshua Izzo). The costume is made from several layers of different fabrics and leather.
