Stubbornly refusing to go away since 1997


Vintage Rebel Trooper


The Parts:

  • Vintage Death Squad Commander
  • Piece of black cloth


Way back in 1995, I tried my hand at customizing Star Wars figures for the first time. This guy was my first attempt. As I look back, it's pretty embarrassing, but I thought some of you might get a kick out of it. I think it shows that you should never get discouraged if things don't turn out well in the beginning.


The main work on this figure involved cutting down the edges of the gloves so they looked like sleeves, and sanding them smooth. After that, I painted him. Not knowing any better at the time, I used Enamel paints (bad, bad Erik), so he has always remained just a little sticky. Last, I cut a nice loose vest for him from some black cargo pants.

Hope you had a good laugh.
