The Captain Antilles Recipe Tutorial
What You Need and Setup

What you Need

As with any recipe, you need to know your ingredients. First make sure you have these three Kenner figures:

  • Ponda Baba
  • Han Solo in Endor Gear
  • Rebel Fleet Trooper

You'll need these supplies and tools:

  • X-acto knife
  • Brushes of various sizes for painting
  • Super glue
  • Spray can of semi-gloss sealant
  • Glass or mug for boiling water
  • Rag or towel
  • Roll of drafting tape (or masking tape)

To give your captain Antilles figure the right coloring, you'll also need to do some painting. We recommend acrylic (water-based) paints, as opposed to enamel (oil-based) paints. Enamel paints may not dry completely on the soft plastics used in many figures, and your figure may feel stick or "tacky" as a result. You'll need paints in these colors:

  • white
  • black
  • silver
  • blue
  • tan
  • brown
  • olive
  • dark reddish brown (optional)


Before you begin, remove all accessories and garments (coats & vests) from the figures. You'll need to be someplace with as much light and as large a working space as possible.
