So in between building sabers i have started on a custom quarter scale Ahsoka Tano statue in readiness for my SH saber set when they arrive and because no manufacturer has produced a quarter scale version of her yet.
Image from The Clone Wars dream.
My version is going to be based on a version from one episode of the clone wars.
So the base started out as a Sideshow Suckerpunch Babydoll premium format statue.
Which i stripped of all her mixed media clothing ( these are now spares for my exclusive version Babydoll ).
The body will now have sculpted clothing, and because of this I had to fill in all the ribs and skin dips and her spine groove that would not be seen when clothes are worn. All the white areas on the statue are areas I have filled and have started sanding and shaping. I have filled the gap in between her breasts and enlarged them too as this statue is based on the version of her that Ahsoka dreams about in the cave vision from The clone wars, which as young girls do, fantasise about how they will look when they are grown up, in this case she is taller and has larger breasts.
The head is currently only being built up with leftover epoxi as i work on the body. Boots in progress
I am also doing video updates as the build progresses.
I hope you enjoy this as it continues.

Done some more work, most of the sculpting on the body, arms and legs, just the belt left to do now. Cut the horns off the samurai helmet and it's totally hollow inside, so expanding foam will be used there to fill the void.

Made a start on the lightsabers today and drilled and ground the katakana handle out of her hand. The sabers are made using aluminium tubes, I did the work using a dremmel and a pillar drill to remove the old handle. Obviously the sabers are not finished and need pommels and greeblies and tidying up all the edges but, it's a start.
methos: Money can't buy happiness... but it can buy lightsabers, which is damn close

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
