"Zeb's Extended Bo-Rifle" created by Darth Daddy

As soon as I finished creating the extended bo-rifle for my custom Agent Kallus action figure, I knew I needed to create an extended bo-rifle to use with our Zeb action figures.  Especially if we wanted to recreate that epic battle between Kallus and Zeb in the Rebels episode Droids in Distress.

To make the extended version of Zeb's AB-75 bo-rifle I used some clear styrene rod and then used twisted clear rubber bands to simulate the pulsing energy strands found at the ends.  It used two of Zeb's rifles to arrange the bo-rifle the way that I did it.  I included work in progress pictures at the bottom so you can see where I extended the bo-rifle with the polystyrene rod.  The clear rubber bands are glued in place with krazy glue.  I drilled through and into some of the Hasbro bow rifle parts so the polystyrene would have stronger connections when glued into place.

PICTURES


 Dad used 2 bo-rifles, clear styrene rod, krazy glue and clear rubber bands to create an extended bo-rifle for Zeb.



 After I painted the bo-rifle a uniform color and painted the clear rubber bands purple, I added a brown wash to bring out the details.  Afterwards, I painted the bandages on the weapon a light beige color, and then added a brown wash over that paint layer as well.



Dad's version of "Zeb's Extended Bo-Rifle" was featured on the front page of Imperial Shipyards.
