LIRIN CAR'N created by Customs for the Kid

Lirin Car'n was a Bith musician and professional kloo horn player for the popular Jizz band known as Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes. Along with his band mates, Lirin was a registered member of the Intergalactic Federation of Musicians (IFM) in good standing. Like many Bith, Lirin possessed a highly evolved brain, which allowed him a special acuity when it came to analyzing and relating to music. As such, his talents helped to greatly enhance the quality and popularity of the Modal Nodes' music. Lirin wasn’t always a musician. Prior to taking up the kloo horn, he worked as a mercenary and was a close associate of the Abyssin known as Myo. In between jobs however, Lirin would find time to perform as a backup player for the Modal Nodes. Lirin Car'n  was present at the eponymous Chalmun's cantina the night when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi entered the cantina seeking a pilot willing to ferry them to the Alderaan system. 

This figure was  a team effort.  I did the build using a recipe given to me by Star Wars customizer Peakob1. I used a Pons Limbic (Brainiac) torso, legs, and upper arms with the forearms of a Vintage Qinlan Vos, and the head of a POTF Cantina band mail away action figure we had in our fodder.  Dad cleaned up all the joints for painting and hard sculpted the torso with a Dremel.  Then it was my turn again and I primed the entire figure with black paint.  After the figure dried, I drybrushed the entire figure.  To finish the figure, Dad painted washes on the head and painted a gloss sealer on the eyes.  I'm trying my best to fill out my Cantina diorama.

Work In Progress

 I'm hoping to have another cantina character on the way to add to these last two I just finished.

Our custom action figure of Lirin Car'n was featured on Imperial Shipyards.
