BROTHERS

Dad threw these two action figures together in seconds after watching the season finale of Clone Wars Season 4. He used the head from an extra Vintage Darth Maul we had on the body of the Infinities Maul from the exclusive comic pack. No modification was needed on the head and it can help you all recreate the final battle scene until a proper release is issued later this year. Since the body was the only one we had, Dad stopped short of doing anything else to the figure.

Dad also cut the horn on the head of an extra Savage Opress that we had so he looked like he did in the latest story arc. Pretty much a no brainer.





Darth Maul & Savage Opress
by Darth Daddy




If you were wondering if it were possible to do a head swap the answer is yes. It's a little snug, but with a minimal amount of Force, it fits. No tooling needed.




Dad used the ball jointed hips and upper legs of a Vintage Kit Fisto to articulate the Savage Opress further and make him so he can now do a full split. A tip he received from Stronox.




Dad cut off the horn with a razor blade.




Later on Dad is going to give him articulated ankles too.




Dad's quick modifications were featured on the front page of Imperial Shipyards.
