CLONE WARS "LATTS RAZZI" created by Elias

This is another 100% sculpted custom action figure from Customs from the Kid. For this one, Elias took the challenge of taking on one of the more difficult characters for an artist to bring to plastic form. Her grappling boa has always been a major impediment. Making the figure itself isn't too difficult. The base of the figure is a Clone Wars Aura Sing action figure. The hands are from a Black Series Jyn Erso action figure and the lower legs and feet are from a Clone Wars Mace Windu. Once the skeleton was assembled, Elias got to sculpting. He secured both pig tails with wire for extra strength. The rest of the figure was altered using ProCreate. 

The grappling boa was the most challenging aspect of this figure. To make things easy, Dad created a custom metal cookie cutter of the shape I needed for her boa. The circles I cut into some flattened ProCreate with a coffee straw. The grappling boa can be extended with an attachment that my Dad made that uses a magnet to connect to last link of her boa via a small metal sheet that I inserted between the pieces. Her backpack also attaches magnetically to her back.

Latts Razzi was a Theelin female bounty hunter who operated during the Clone Wars. She was part of a syndicate of bounty hunters that included Boba Fett, Bossk, Oked, C-21 Highsinger, and Dengar. She immersed herself in first class comforts and expensive clothing, which she used her career to pay for. Latts was highly skilled in many types of weaponry. She was said to have pinpoint accuracy with a blaster pistol, as well as being an expert in several forms of exotic unarmed combat. During her job on Quarzite she displayed her self to be capable of going head-to-head in hand-to hand combat with the leader of the Kage Warriors, Krismo Sodi. Razzi was said to charge very high rates, yet had the skill to back it up. Latts weapon of choice was a Grappling boa, which she used as a whip and a lariat against her many opponents. She saw the weapon as stylish and practical, when not in use the Grappling Boa was draped around her shoulders like a scarf.

An extra extended piece was created to connect magnetically to her weapon to illustrate the Grappling Boa in action

Most of the Latts Razzi action figure was created from a Clone Wars Aura Sing action figure.
