Mad Bodgin’ Mage Log: Sabine Wren suits up

This was a bodge that switched gears early on.
The original intent was to take Sabine from Star Wars: Rebels…
rebels09

…and add her helmet to the model:
SabineWren-Fathead

So to start I took a strip of paper and wrapped it around her head to figure out where the visor would go.

After that, I took that strip of paper and traced it onto plasticard:

….Aaaaaand after I glued that together, I sorta ditched this bodge because other projects caught my attention.

 

The End.

 

Well, at least the end of THAT idea. While a friend of mine was doing some shopping, we stopped in at the electronic section and I saw this guy:
4628317-0+emp_bobafett

…and that got the cogs turnin’ again.

I abandoned the scratch-built helmet idea and decided to smash these two together instead:

Soooo… it was out with the blade to do some slicing.

I’ve been using the same blade for over a year to cleave through metal and plastic alike (I prefer to use a dull blade, less blood that way), and it was taken out by this Fett killing jetpack:

…though APPARENTLY, he actually survived that.

 

Because money.

 

Anyway…

…from there I trimmed bits off of both figures:

There wasn’t much left of Boba, after the Sarlacc “incident”:

Sabine fared much better:

Aside from her losing her head, I guess…

That’s a piece of paperclip jammed into he neck hole, so that her head can be interchanged:

After all of that was figured out, it was time for some paint:

Then it was time to put it all together! πŸ˜€
