Captain Rex
« on: April 17, 2015, 12:22:33 PM »

I quite like the new Black Series Captain Rex.  I didn't really like how small the head was though so I modified it so I can use the Clone Wars Phase 2 head which I hollowed out.  The only Rex head available unfortunately is the cartoon one.  At least the helmet looks realistic.  I do miss the ball jointed torso though.  Too bad Hasbro didn't just use the Fordo body and make him in that same manner.  For now this will have to satisfy me for Rex.

Previously I used the CW Phase II helmet which was kinda large.  Makes him look weird beside other Clone Commanders.  Also, the paint on the CW one did not actually match up with the paint on the Black Collection one.  So, I went and hollowed out the Black Collection Rex helmet.  What do you think?  I had to mod the neck to fit the Rex head on though.  I wanted to take off the head to show the mod, but I couldn't remove it anymore.  I had to elongate the neck with a screw and the screw is a bit tight (which is good so I can remove the helmet without his head popping off).  I used a big head screw and popped Rex's head onto it.  The lower neck part where the joint was had to be shaved down to make it look like a neck and then painted black.
