Boc (Twi'lek Dark Jedi)

Boc the Crude was part of a group of Dark Jedi, led by Jerec, who attempted to gain control of the Lost Valley of the Jedi. Boc was killed by Kyle Katarn.

Parts: Head (Bib Fortuna), Torso (Dagobah Luke Skywalker), Arms (Dagobah Luke Skywalker), Legs (Bib Fortuna), Skirt (Tusken Raider), Lightsabers (any purple bladed lightsabers).

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

Reference: Dark Forces: Jedi Knight (the graphic novel from Dark Horse or still photos from the PC game).

Step One: I assembled the necessary parts using the boiling water method and then allowed the figure to cool completely.

Step Two: I super glued the skirt-thingy from the Tusken Raider to Boc's waist, being very careful not to glue the legs in place.

Step Three: I used the X-acto knife to trin one of the bandoleers from the Tusken Raider and then super glued it around Boc's body.

Step Four: I used Super Sculpey to sculpt the wristbands. They were cured using boiling water and then sanded, as necessary.

Step Five: I painted the figure according to the reference pictures and then allowed it to dry completely.

Step Six: I applied a light coat of Testors Dull-Cote to protect the paint and reduce the shine.
