CLONE WARS "PRIME MINISTER ALMEC" created by DARTH DADDY

Almec was a male Human from the planet Mandalore, and a one-time believer in the pacifist ways of Duchess Satine Kryze. During the Clone Wars, Almec served as the Prime Minister of Mandalore and did as he thought best to watch over and represent the interests of Mandalore. His dedication became his undoing, however; when Mandalore declared neutrality in the Clone Wars and the planet became cut off from Galactic Republic aid. Almec then established a black market trade network to bring much-needed goods to the Mandalorian people. These smugglers poisoned the people of Sundari with toxic tea, putting numerous children in the hospital. Almec was exposed as the leader of the black market network and summarily imprisoned for his crimes.

When Darth Maul took over Mandalore, Maul broke Almec out of prison and reinstated him as Prime Minister, with Almec declaring loyalty to Maul and his Death Watch allies. Following Maul's capture and imprisonment by Darth Sidious, Almec saw to it that Maul was rescued and brought back to the Death Watch.

This is a 100% sculpted action figure made with ProCreate used on a Clone Wars Savage Opress action figure. The thighs of the figure were shortened to reduce the height of the figure and the hands were switched out with the hands from a realistic version of Count Dooku that came with Force Flipping Attack. The tabards on the figure were manufactured from the skirt that was already present on the Savage figure. From there it was all handcrafted.

CLONE WARS "SORA BULQ" created by Darth Daddy

Although the Star Wars character Sora Bulq had a prominent role throughout the comics based on the Clone Wars era of the saga, in the TV series he was relegated to the background and never even received a speaking part or featured as a main character in an episode.  He stood at conference tables, paid his respects at a Jedi funeral and walked down the halls of the Jedi Temple, but well that was about it. 

So why make him?

Well, because we had the parts to make him, and we wanted to do an exclusive reveal for Episode 22 of "Customizing The Clone Wars".  He took only half a day to create the figure with a Clone Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi, the braids from a Hondo Ohnaka, and a head cast of an original Weequay head sculpt that I made to make pirates from Hondo's gang.  Once it was built we painted him and called it a wrap.

"CUSTOMIZING THE CLONE WARS" - EPISODE 22



Peak-OB1 Custom Creations & Darth Daddy of "Customs for the Kid" continue breaking down Season 2 of The Clone Wars TV series as they showcase Clone Wars custom action figures from the episode "Grievous Intrigue".







BATTLE DAMAGED "KYLO REN" created by Darth Daddy

To make this figure we altered the body of the Black Series 3.75" Kylo Ren with a Dremel and some ProCreate.  The head was a cast created from a mold we made of the Force Awakens Unmasked Kylo Ren action figure.  The scar and chest wound were created with the Dremel.  The busted up collar was sculpted with the ProCreate. The soft goods were cut with some fabric scissors and painted to show lightsaber damage.

It took less than a day to make this action figure and he was a fun addition to the collection.
