Custom lightsaber for 17in tall Yoda by toyphototaker
Custom lightsaber for 17in tall Yoda
Wanted to share a custom lightsaber I made for a 17 inch tall latex Yoda.

Started with an old (Anakin's) "The Clone Wars" happy meal lightsaber for the hilt. Added a blade from 2 party favor straws (with spoons attached) by cutting off the spoon heads and gluing the straws together. Hilt was broken, so I simply drilled the light bulb socket a little wider to accommodate the blade, though I may swap it out later with one that has a working light.

Tranquility repurposed by toyphototaker
Tranquility repurposed
I found this broken "Tranquility" fountain last weekend at a local dump's "swap shop", and all I could see was potential. Currently using it to display my 6in Black series figures but could be used for almost ANY scale.

All I've done thus far was add fake moss/vegetation and a thin repelling rope. I haven't decided if I'll add fake waterfalls yet.

My custom squad thus far by toyphototaker
My custom squad thus far
Wanted to show the work I've done. Haven't decided how I'll differentiate officers from soldiers yet, but may use the custom cape somehow.

"Officer" is essentially a straight-up Boba Fett with a custom built Darksaber. Just removed his factory cape and Wookie sculpts. Also modified his jetpack to look more like Jango's second pack from AOTC

"Heavy" trooper uses a bi-pod .50 Cal from an old 3.75" GI Joe figure. Moved his hip poaches to his thighs and added a Stormtrooper holster/rifle to his belt.

"Spec Ops" has been modified to look like Jango Fett (dual wielding pistols) also removed his rangefinder and replaced it with a "laser sight" courtesy of a peg trimmed off of the "Officer's" jetpack. Provided an E-Web from an older set of 3.75" figures. Hope Hasbro will provide us with one themselves, it just needs modified legs to make it stand taller.

Interests
Just received a message on 1 of my more recent photos by this user. The message included a link to a phishing/virus site. I wanted to warn as many users as I can before anyone else falls victim to the link. I can't STAND people like this. They're only here to ruin a fun experience on sites such as Deviantart.

Thank you, I'm happy you liked them.

The Warthogs came from the "Halo: Reach" toy line. You might be able to find them available on eBay.
