Nicola Acris: Hide In Plain Site Custom Contest Entry

"Who is Nicola Acris? Nicola Acris is a brilliant, yet demented, Separatist bioengineer under the command of General Grievous. Acris was responsible for the development of much of the cybernetic technology used to resurrect Grievous following his near fatal shuttle crash. Obsessed with harnessing the power of the force for himself, General Grievous enlists the aid of Acris and the two embark on a dark quest to manipulate the body’s midi-chlorian count. The silhouette is only meant to serve as a promotional piece and in no way limit your creativity! "

When Dad set out to create this action figure he wanted to make one that you could all create at home. The two figures he used have been found on shelves in retail stores for months. With all the repacks this season flooding store pegs, now would be a great time to treat yourself to a custom action figure and actually add a new figure to your collection for once. It's not like we are able to find any of the new Star Wars figures at retail. All he used was the G.I. Joe Renegades Tunnel Rat and the Clone Wars Cold Weather Plo Koon. The head and hands are from the Plo Koon and the rest is all Tunnel Rat. He painted the arms with a few coats of Citadel's Delvan Mud wash and the hands with Reaper's Earth Brown acrylic paint. Dad squirted some glue from the hot glue gun into the hole in Plo Koon's head so it would fit tightly on the head peg and still be able to maintain the articulation of a ball joint.  Great for a beginner!
