Streen (Human Jedi Master)

A gas prospector on the planet Bespin, Streen was already an old man when he was discovered by Luke Skywalker. Streen was one of Master Skywalker's first twelve students at the Jedi Academy, and soon became a Jedi Knight. Over the years, Streen occasionally served as the temporary headmaster of the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. He eventually attained the level of Jedi Master.

Parts: Head (Ki Adi Mundi), Torso (Ki Adi Mundi), Arms (Ki Adi Mundi), Legs (Ki Adi Mundi), Lightsaber (Jedi Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi), raggedy cloak/hood thing (vintage Chief Chirpa hood).

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

Reference: Pictures can be found in the Jedi Academy: Leviathan comic series from Dark Horse. Descriptions can be found in the Jedi Academy novel trilogy.

Step One: I trimmed the entire skirt off the body with the X-acto knife.

Step Two: Using the X-acto knife again, I cut away a large part of the top and back of the head. I then used Super Sculpey to re-sculpt the helmet according to the reference pictures.

Step Three: I cut away the upper portion of the ewok hood and super glued the hood to the figure's shoulders.

Step Four: Next, I painted the figure according to the reference pictures.

Step Five: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to protect the paint and remove the shiny appearance
