"MAKAZIE ONE" Action Figure

Not sure how many of you are familiar with the Star Wars fan film "Makazie One" written and directed by Clutch. Set in the Star Wars universe during the time period between Episodes III and IV, the story is about an elite soldier that has been sent to track down and destroy a known threat to the Empire through intense ground battles and haunting imagery of death that surrounds the environment. The unsuspecting enemy to the new Imperial order has no idea what he is up against when the two finally meet for an action packed surprise ending. The film won the "Best Cinematography" award at Star Wars Celeberation V and after viewing the movie you will see why. Check out the film before you read any further to avoid any spoilers.

Do not watch slide show before you watch the film.

Dad saw the film a ways back and ever since he saw it he has been wanting to do a tribute to this film by creating a Makazie One action figure. Yesterday he got around to making it. He used Hasbro's new Vintage Stormtrooper to maximize the articulation of the figure. He then modified a Baron Soontir Fel head from the Comic 2-pack that included Hobbie Klivian and then finished the figure off by sculpting Makazie One's signature thermal detonator lightsaber with some Apoxie Sculpt. Oh yeah and Dad made the kama out of an old dress sock that no longer had it's match. I love the way it came out and it's a great addition to my growing customizing collection.
