Jacen Solo (Human Jedi Knight)

Jacen Solo, the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo, began his Jedi training at the age of two along with his twin sister, Jaina. Given his family lineage, it was understood from the start that Jacen would grow to be a powerful Jedi. He played a pivotal role during the confrontation with the Yuuzhan Vong, participating in operations on Dantooine, Garqi, Ithor, Duro and Myrkr. He was eventually responsible for the defeat of the Yuuzhan Vong leader, which subsequently led to the end of that war. After the Yuuzhan Vong War, Jacen spent five years roaming the galaxy, learning whatever he could from other Force-using cultures.

Parts: Head (Cale from Titan AE), Torso (Jedi Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi), Arms (Jedi Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi), Legs (Jedi Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi), Lightsaber (POTJ Obi-Wan Kenobi).

Supplies: X-acto knife, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: I don't know of any pictures of Jacen in his late teens, so I imagined a younger Han Solo, and used a bit of artistic license.

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

Step Two: Next, I painted the figure, as desired.

Step Three: Finally, I applied a coat of Testor's Dull-Cote to protect the paint and reduce the shine.
