Captain Marcus Jespers is the head of security aboard the New Republic light cruiser Defiance. He has coordinated and supervised the security of the ship and her crew in a wide variety of locations.
Parts: Head (Grand Moff Tarkin), Torso (vintage General Madine), Upper Arms (vintage General Madine), Lower Arms (Cantina Han Solo), Legs (vintage General Madine), Boots (Cantina Han Solo).
Supplies: Dremel, X-acto knife, super glue, emery board or file, paintbrushes, Polly Scale paints and Testors Dull-Cote.
Reference: None. This is a fan-fic character created by me, as a background character for a diorama.
Step One: I already had the vintage Madine body missing his head and boots (they were used on other custom figures). So, I dremeled out a hole for the neck to fit in. I have at least a dozen Tarkin heads lying around, so I decided to use one of them. The head fit snugly into the hole and did not require any futher adjustment.
Step Two: I cut off the arms right where the grey shoulder piece stops and the lower sleeve begins. Then, I trimmed the Cantina Han arms to match and super glue the in place. If you are careful, you can preserve the articulation at the elbow.
Step Three: I attached the Cantina Han boots using super glue. I had to shorten them a bit to keep him from looking too freakish.
Step Four: Then, I painted the figure, as desired. I based the color scheme on the stills from Return of the Jedi and my other New Republic military personnel.
Step Five: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
Wish I was there!
