SUPER-ARTICULATED "CAPTAIN PANAKA" created by Darth Daddy

Queen Amidala's loyal protector during the Trade Federation invasion crisis was Captain Panaka. Panaka was often referred to as "the quickest eyes on Naboo" for his attention to detail and selfless dedication to the safety of the Queen.  

To create this super-articulated version of the character, I used the Captain Typho action figure from The Legacy Collection as my base figure.  I borrowed the head and gloves from the original figure and modified the Typho where needed.  Mostly it was the clothing that needed modifying and I was able to do that with a new sculpting medium I started using called ProCreate.  Instead of making the hat removable, I just made the head swappable.  Since I had two Panaka heads, I removed the hat from one, and sculpted in his hair.
