STAR WARS REBELS "GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN - IMPERIAL OFFICER BATTLE ARMOR" created by Darth Daddy

This was a custom we wanted to make ever since watching the season finale of Rebels, "Zero Hour". It was cool to see Thrawn sporting his battle armor, and we knew if we put some effort into it, it could be an easy figure to make. First, we modified the chest armor and accessories that came with the Vintage AT-AT Commander aka General Veers by filling in the controls located at the abdomen by filling the recessed space with Aves Fixit. When we were done sanding our spackle job,  we expanded the size of the rank insignia with the sculpting compound that we had left over before it dried. After, we painted the goggles, armor and helmet white, we followed up our primary layered paint applications by adding in all the fine details and accents to the figure as needed.  

On the figure, all that we had to do was paint Thrawn's hands glossy black for Thrawn's gloves, and then fix the colors in Thrawn's rank insignia that Hasbro got wrong in their own paint application.  By the time we were done, we had one cool looking action figure.  We kept the action figure's five points of articulation to keep it consistent with the Rebels line.

Oh, and on a side note, if you haven't read the new Thrawn novel, pick it up it was a fun read.
