Excellent work on repainting that old Han head. It looks much better now.

Custom Spider-Man Secret Identity Peter Parker figure.
He has a custom camera with a fabric strap and metal hinges. Spider-Man mask that he can hold, and a posable web.

3PO is exquisite! Luke was great and that Peter is an excellent use of that useless Lex figure!!!

Everyone of your customs, Wally that you have done is unbelievably superb and I just loved the old Luke Skywalker the best and Peter Parker was done to the "T" ... 3PO is far out and the paint job and the dirty look of it - done masterfully!

Exceptional work on all of these, man! As IS already stated, excellent use of that Lex Luthor figure to repurpose into Petey!

Thanks Savant , Dr. Fate , and Acid for the positive feedback and comments. It's always great to hear what your peers think of the custom work that you've completed.
I kept seeing dirtied up versions of the Walgreens exclusive C-3PO and was itching to try it for myself. At first, I thought I put too much wash on, until I went back and compared mine with the others, that I've seen online.
Luke is almost a completely repainted Episode III Obi Wan, with a cloth skirt, and custom cast head, lightsaber hilt, & robot hand. He has a custom cloth cloak. He was actually sold on ebay, so I'm working on another one for myself.
Peter Parker is that terrible Batman v. Superman Lex Luthor figure. I had seen that recipe used somewhere, and it seemed like a perfect fit. At one point, I picked up a few of those Lex Luthor figures, from Amazon, for an astoundingly cheap price of $2.49!!! I used a cast Peter Parker cast head, and it's completely hand-painted. I bought casts of the camera, added small, metal screw-in eyelets(which I bent into a flat shape, on top, instead of circular), and made the cloth camera strap. That Spiderman mask is a cast piece, and had to paint ever small red shape, between the molded -in webbing. WHAT A PAIN! LOL.
I made THREE of those Peter Parker figures, so that was 3 of those masks, that I had to paint. I kept one for myself and sold one on ebay and have the other one up now. Plus, I was able to sell off the extra Bat Grapnel build-a-gun piece, which offset the cost of buying the Lex figures, and the head/camera/mask casts.
