"ZIRO THE HUTT" custom action figure created by Darth Daddy

Well we didn't see him at SDCC and rumor is we'll never see him. Dad has been wanting to create a Ziro the Hutt action figure for a long time now. He had a CW Jabba the Hutt sitting in the corner of the kitchen for a few months now and this weekend he finally got started on the project. This particular Jabba toy is starting to go for a lot of money on ebay, so you want to grab one before it goes out of your price range. Hasbro recently announced that they will not be making Ziro as an action figure so this is the only way you will be able to obtain the first villain of the Clone Wars television series.

"Ziro's Droid R2-C2" created by Wraithnine.





















Dad used phosphorescent acrylics so Ziro's tattoos would glow under a black light.






Dad used frames taken from the "Hunt for Ziro" episode to figure out the paint scheme for his Ziro action figure.









The headdress is held on with magnets inserted into Ziro's head and on the headdress itself.



SKILL LEVEL: ADVANCED

Ziro's headdress and jewelry were sculpted by hand and are removable.
