SANDTROOPER IN TUSKEN RAIDER DISGUISE

A few weeks ago I saw an awesome Star Wars custom action figure of a Sandtrooper in a Tusken Raider Disguise made by TD 5491 Phenix Customs.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted one.   Ben Kenobi had a sneaky suspicion that these were the guys who took out Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru so I knew it would be fun to add this figure to my collection.

To make it, Dad used a Vintage Sandtrooper and a Vintage Tusken Raider.  He cut off the neck post of both figures and glued the Tusken Raider head to the Sandtrooper body.  He had to boil and pop the arms of the Tusken Raider action figure to get the bandoliers off and add them to the Sandtrooper torso.  He made sure he added the soft goods robe first though.  Now I only wish that I had one with the awesome card back that TD 5491 Phenix Customs designed.
