Very nice, I guess I'd missed this one!

To remove the helmet, I dunked the figure in hot water to soft the plastic, the peeled the helmet off. I dremeled out the tab inside and sculpted on the hair.

The legs are Duke's upper legs with the pocket dremeled off and the lower legs of a Crimson Guard.

How did you get the chest opened up without destroying the figure? also what paint did you use? Is it tough enough to be played with or for display only? I would like to try this custom but I want to find a paint that will stand up to being posed and played with. Any advise?

What did you make his legs from?

great fix!! hey Hasbro! this is how it should've been done!

That's pretty sweet. I haven't seen the actual figure yet so I'm not sure how much was done... but I like what I see. Judging from the Zartan figure and what I've heard about Bludd, it looks like a lot of work. Kudos to you!

Okay, okay, I know I promised a walk through, but I ended up gutting that figure to create a much more accurate version, one that gives Bludd his due.

So far I have been very very please with the 25th line but I really think that Hasbro should take a look at this thread and review this custom figure in order to see how a retooling of existing parts can make for a great looking figure. You did a great job and I really hope that Hasbro is quick to use these parts for a official Bludd fix. thanks! for posting pics.

so what recipe (figures) did you use for this.

looks like a hiss tank driver torso and some bludd parts.

what's the rest? especially the legs? and how did you make bludd's helmet removable?

Nothin but net, man. Very well done.
