Star Wars Sideshow Dengar weapon upgrade - Sun May 12, 2019 4:09 pm

Sideshow has produced a full pack of Empire Strikes Back bounty hunters, including Dengar. These are all generally excellent figures, but in Dengar's case they overlooked one fairly signature detail when it came to his long blaster rifle. In the film (though not in some of the released pre-production photos), Dengar sported a modified MG 42 with the bipod and buttstock removed. Sideshow's weapon is beautifully sculpted and painted (even if a bit too evenly for my taste), and has the bipod removed; but the buttstock is still there. While I would agree that the weapon looks silly without the buttstock, we are supposed to strive for movie accuracy, are we not?

So instead of modifying the Sideshow piece, I purchased an inexpensive 1/6 MG 42 kit on eBay, put it together without the bipod and buttstock, and finally got around to painting/weathering it. I wanted to give it a used, worn appearance, and to reduce the plastic-looking effect of, well, black plastic. I think it turned out reasonably well, even if the less accurate Sideshow weapon has finer detail.

Star Wars Hoth Rebel Trooper (updated) - Wed May 01, 2019 5:12 pm

Update and Sideshow comparison in Post 8

I'm sure I've seen others do the same, but I finally got around to trying out the old Kenner sixth-scale uniforms on better heads and bodies as a simple custom/kitbash rebel trooper on Hoth. You can see the result in the four photos that follow.

While the original Kenner figure proportions were a bit off (shorter limbs, larger heads), the outfits are often salvageable for customs or kitbashes. This is largely the case here. The final look is a bit on the puffy side, but the wider/thicker appearance of the sleeves, pants, and vest actually appears appropriate as protection from the cold Hoth (or Norway) environment. Likewise with the slightly oversized helmet. The boots are a bit on the simple side, but some weathering might help. The only part that really bothers me are the bottoms of the sleeves -- they should have been longer and a little less narrow (that last part might be fixable with some effort). Note: After taking the photos below, I realized I had put on the pants the wrong way (the quilted part should be on the front, as in the photo above) -- I mean, who puts the "zipper" part in the back? Wink .

I had long wanted to make some of these guys (at least as playmates for my snowtroopers), but wasn't willing to invest the money in the higher-end parted-out pieces from Sideshow. I think these turned out pretty decent for my relatively limited interest and purposes.

What do you think?

Well, after an all but 4 month wait (I preordered 14th January) My Dengar and Zuckuss figures arrived today. bounce bounce bounce

I have been waiting for these for so long really, in order to complete my ESB Bounty Hunter collection properly.

I will post a quick review of both in separate threads once I have had a bit more time with them, and of course there will be some pics with their Bounty Hunter buddies.  

I couldn't wait to put up some pics though so for now the boxes will have to suffice Laughing Laughing Laughing

I skipped Sunday - hey, the family was over for Easter.  But let's get back to things tonight with a look at a very wintry dude, the Snowtrooper Commander from Sideshow. I love Hoth characters, and it's amazing that I've added two to the collection in the last couple weeks. You can find my review here:

Coming up next - two reviews in a row from Qmx!  Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!
