Custom Ewok figures

Post  Chukha-Trok76 on Thu 10 Jun 2010, 1:19 am

I have made a figure of Chukha-Trok by customizing a POTF II Teebo figure, re-tooling his arms, head and hands. I made a sculpy hood (Chukha's head doesn't turn) and belt, and added on a pouch from JaQuille the Whiphid. My friend helped weave Chukha-Troks' breastplate from toothpicks and beading wire. The animal skull on it is sculpey. I made his axe head from sculpey and real wood. I wrapped hemp fiber around it. I love how he turned out! I got the idea from another customizers' website, Owen Driscoll from Owen;'s Customs. I can't sculpt as well as he can, but I'm getting there.

And, just for kicks and because i've always wanted one, I made a greater Endorian Lantern Bird! I made it from a Schliech swan figure witht the tail of a Safari Ltd. microraptor. I cut the tail off the microraptor and shaved the tail down to fit in a slit in the swan's tail. I superglued it in, and added sculpey to fill it out. Then I slowly baked the whole bird till the sculpey was firm. I base coated it with pink sparay paint, 5 coats. Then I just painted it, building up the pink highlights and reddish purple. I put a spot of glow-in-the-dark paint on the tail for the tail pod and a small feather on top of it's head made from a pink pipe cleaner.

I made a Chukha-Trok several years ago, and I have been meaning to update him and make a few upgrades - you should post a picture, I'd like to see your version.

I'm glad we can finally see him - he turned out really nice, great attention to detail. Do you plan on making anyone else from the Ewoks movies?

I've always liked Deej, Wicket's dad. He didn't have to help those kids, and he knew how dangerous it was. "The giant Gorax lives in a land from which no Ewok has ever returned!" But he chose to befriend and help Cindel and Mace. I want to customize a Deej figure with the white wings, and his hunting knife and horn. I'd even make a miniature map. I've got a couple pony figures, and I'm making faux fur and leather trappings and reigns and blankets. Also I want to make Cindel, as I always liked her when I was a kid.
