Star Wars Custom Of The Week: TCW Cham Syndulla By Darth Daddy

Bespin refugee - February 02, 2020

This week's custom is The Clone Wars Cham Syndulla by Darth Daddy


Body - Clone Wars Mace Windu
2 Left Forearms - Clone Wars Shahan Alama
Hands - Vintage Quinlan Vos
Soft goods were fabricated & sewn by hand

To be truthful, The Clone Wars version of Cham Syndulla wasn't on my radar until only recently. I was more partial to creating the Rebels version of the character so I could place Cham on the shelf next to his daughter Hera. My drive to fabricate him in his earliest incarnation was completely driven by wanting to create more content for the "Customizing The Clone Wars" videocast that I do every week with Star Wars customizer Peak-OB1. I was hoping to have this action figure done in time for the 13th episode of "Customizing The Clone Wars" where Peak-OB1 Custom Creations and just showcased a selection of Clone Wars custom action figures of the unrepresented characters that are in Season One's "Liberty on Ryloth".

To start the process, I used ProCreate and Aves Fixit to make some small adjustments to the Clone Wars Mace Windu figure that would change him into Cham Syndulla. A sculpting medium was applied to the figure on the head, torso, arms and legs to facilitate the transition. I recommend using ProCreate to create the lekku off the back of the head. It maintains a rubbery flexibility when dry, which is very key to making the figure more playable and not just a display piece.

I used the sleeves of an old Star Wars t-shirt to sew the soft goods that I hand sewed. Old t-shirts are great to cut up for fabric to sew your soft goods from. There is a nice weight to the material that keeps the fabric close to the body.

To wrap this figure up, I only need to finish painting the head and do some touch ups here and there throughout the rest of the figure. I will also most likely make a few adjustments to the headsculpt as well. I'm always my own worst critic.

Great job. I love seeing the Blurg too. Really clever how you used the Mace Windu head as a base. I can see how his defined brow line would be helpful for the sculpting process. I sure to wish we could get an official release of Cham. I would also love a Rebel's version as well.
