As you know I like to introduce the audience at our blog to quick and easy modifications that they can make to their existing action figures to spruce things up a bit. These two action figures are no different.ULTIMATE BARRISS OFFEE
We really loved Hasbro's new VOTC Barriss Offee action figure, but she didn't have a very battle ready appearance. By combining elements of the Star Wars Saga 2002 Collection 2: Attack of the Clones #12 Barriss Offee [Jedi Padawan] and a few accessories from the new CW Barriss Offee, we were able to create the Ultimate Barriss Offee with an interchangeable head sculpt, a short cloak to go with the existing hood, and a battle action cloak too. I'm planning on adding an interchangeable right hand so I can keep using the magnet hand from the Star Wars Saga 2002 Collection 2: Attack of the Clones #12 Barriss Offee also.She looks a lot more battle ready now.
I loved the head sculpt of the original Barriss and wanted to come up with a way to show off the hair of the action figure in this Ultimate edition.With an Exacto knife I cut of the head of the AOTC Barriss and then used a drill and Dremel to give the head the ability to snap securely onto the neck post of the VOTC figure and have full articulation.With all these accessories a lot of variations could be produced to enhance play.
with Articulated Knees
I boiled the original Saga 2 Sora Bulq action figure to remove his unarticulated legs and replaced them with the CW Eeth Koth legs instead. By boiling the two action figures in hot water for about 5 minutes, the plastic was soft enough to swap out the legs of the figure. I read that JACKOFTRADZE
used the same technique with the legs of a Kit Fisto from the Target Geonosis 2-pack. I didn't have one in our fodder so Eeth Koth had to step in to make it happen. At some point I would like to replace the hard goods skirt with a soft good skirt when I find a suitable replacement.
