Custom Mace Windu
Hi all, a while back I picked up some red carded Episode I figures at my local K-Mart. They were 50 cents each, so I picked up a few for customizing. Well, I had a little extra time to myself so I put together a custom Mace Windu figure. I used the upper torso of a Jedi Duel Qui-Gon, and the head and lower torso/legs of the Ep. I Mace. It took some time to dremmel out some of the pieces to make them fit. Then I painted the hands and added a Sculpey collar and I was done.
It's not the best Mace custom, but it only cost me a buck to make. And now I have a nice, neutral posed Mace.
Ummm.. actually it cost $1.50 because I had to buy a Ki-Adi Mundi figure to get the purple lightsaber :)
I wish Hasbro would make more "neutral" posed figures, ala the vintage line.
Good job, TIE Pilot!
Hasbro has really failed us with Mace. IMHO, the only good Mace was the sneak preview figure for TPM. The choco-Mace later in TPM line was OK (better without the cloak), but the Mace's for AOTC are deplorable! He has that constipated expression on his face!
jblodgett: Yep, I agree. Don't get me wrong, I like most of the action poses. But with all the resculpts Hasbro does.. I can't see why one or two of them can't be neutral posed figures.
OC47150: That's the reason I put this Mace together. I wanted a Mace in his Ep.II garb that didn't look like he was fighting, angry or needed a laxative :) And it doesn't look like we'll be getting a "peaceful" Mace anytime soon.
My mind started wandering after I saw your Mace, TIE Pilot. I might try and put one together, too.
I also might try my hand at a better Jango Fett, too, combine accessories from the different sets to one figure.
GOOD JOB! WELL DONE!!!!!!!
