OUR "MAY THE 4TH" MANDO!

We have been a bit overwhelmed with work over here at Customs for the Kid. Unfortunately we didn't get to go all out for the 4th, but life is what happens when you're busy making other plans. 

Let it be said that doesn't mean we are going to leave you hanging either though. This is just a quick project that you could all likely recreate at home with just a few items that can be grabbed online and a few hours of work. In the hyperlinks are just a few customization items that can be used to recreate the Din Djarin we did here today. These same offerings could even be applied to another project completely. This is the way! Or May?!

A lot of collectors have complained about the end of vac metallization in action figure production. Even more so now that Din Djarin has been introduced to the Star Wars galaxy. One solution we have been using at home has been chroming out the desired parts of our figures with the Molotow Chrome Markers we purchased while browsing the web for art supplies. We get the markers in a variety of sizes to meet all our needs.

The Beskar pauldron Mando wears on his shoulder we picked up from Audes_Workshop on eBay. It was part of a full armor kit he was selling at the time.  I dremelled the existing pauldron and simply glued on the replacement.  Once it was in place I applied the chrome in a single coat.  To unify the color pallet, I applied a coat of Molotow to the helmet as well.

The last piece that we added to the figure is an alternate wired soft goods cape that we also purchased on eBay. It works really well for action poses. We bought it so long ago we couldn't find the name of the seller, but we found one that is active currently found here at the top of this paragraph.

Our new custom looked great posed with the blurrgs and heavy machine cannon we purchased from Uzay Customs!
