Adi Gallia (Human Jedi Master)

Adi Gallia was a Jedi Master during the last years of the Old Republic. Born to Corellian parents who were diplomats on Coruscant, she was quickly recognized for her strength with the Force. After years of training, she became one of the twelve members of the Jedi Council shortly before the Battle of Naboo. She was known among the Jedi for her abilities of intuition and information gathering, and maintained a vast network of informants across the planet of Coruscant. Through this network, she discovered that the Trade Federation was building droid-controlled starfighters and was planning to blockade the small planet of Naboo, in an effort to force the Old Republic to lift its taxation of trade routes. The Federation attempted to stop her on Esseles, but she was rescued by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. She brought this information to the attention of Chancellor Valorum, who requested that two Jedi be dispatched to Naboo to negotiate a settlement without the interference of the Senate. Adi Gallia was eventually killed during the Clone Wars, by General Grevious, who claimed her lightsaber as a trophy.

Parts: Head (Adi Gallia), Torso (Adi Gallia), Arms (Adi Gallia), Legs (Adi Gallia), Cloak (Ben Kenobi), Lightsaber (Adi Gallia). Note: you will need two Adi Gallia right arms for this custom.

Supplies: X-acto knife, super glue, emery board or file, Testors Dull-Cote, Paints and Brushes.

Reference: Dark Horse Comics' Jedi Council: Acts of War.

Step One: I swapped Adi's left arm with the extra right arm, so that both arms have a swivel joint at the elbow.

Step Two: Using the X-acto knife and the super glue, I replaced the "extra" right hand with the left hand from the arm I removed.

Step Three: I repositioned the legs a bit to give her a more action oriented pose.

Step Four: Then I added the cloak and painted the figure.

Step Five: When dry, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote.
