Clone Wars "Unidentified Weequay Pirate 1 (Florrum)" created by Elias

This is an action figure that I created with two Shahan Alama action figures and some Clone Wars Quinlan Vos hands.  First I modified the boots with some green stuff.  Made them flap over at the top.  I repainted the arms, legs, and torso.  I also repainted the hat, cummerbund and the shoulder armor too.  I used a scrap of dried flat green stuff, cut it into shape, and glued it below the ears to modify the Shahan Alama figure so he wore a bandana.  I used the blue gloved forearm from two Shahan Alama figures to do his forearms.  I couldn't use the Shahan Alama hand because he only had one regular hand to work with.  The Clone Wars Quinlan Vos action figure supplied the perfect replacements.  I didn't want to see the extra heads go to waste and this was a great way to give them some use. When I saw him on the show and I saw I had the parts to do it, I figured it was meant to be.

Around 20 BBY, this pirate informed Jiro that a ship's hyperdrive and main reactor were inactive. After that, when it turned out that Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress were on the ship, this pirate along with Jiro and some of the other pirates joined them against Hondo Ohnaka. Later on, when the two Sith were overpowered by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hondo, the remaining pirates joined Hondo again, and helped him to chase the brothers away from Florrum.

My Clone Wars Weequay Pirate was featured on the front page of Imperial Shipyards.  Unfortunately, Dad got the credit for him.  I guess I should be happy that someone thought my custom looked good enough to be one of his.
