3.75" SUPER-ARTICULATED "JYN ERSO - EADU" by Customs for the Kid

This was an extremely easy custom action figure to produce. We got the idea from Star Wars customizer, wedgeswingman, in a post he did in the Rebelscum forums. Fabrication takes two action figures of Jyn Erso to create. First you need either the 3.75" Black Series version of her or the newer Vintage Jyn Erso #119 that is available on store pegs right now.  The second figure that you need is the 5poa Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Jyn Erso for her head, poncho and accessories. First boil and pop the arms off the 5poa version of her so you can slip the poncho off the figure. If you remove the vest from the super-articulated figure that you chose from, you can possibly slip the poncho onto the figure if you can do so before the rubber cools. We made a slice with an X-acto knife along the right edge of her poncho where it wouldn't show when we glued it back in place after we slipped and stretched it over the super-articulated frame. We maintained pressure as the glue dried until it held firm. After, the poncho was in place we sculpted the baggier 3/4 sleeves of the poncho onto the forearms of the figure with ProCreate. Elias then gave the head a new repaint to finish her off, after Darth Daddy finished painting the body.
