If you have been following along with our recent episodes of The Realm Recap, you’ll be familiar with the fact that I recently acquired a gorgeous custom 6’ Prototype Boba Fett from talented customizer Chris Veach. As I alluded to in the show, I thought how cool would it be to have a custom box to go along with it. So, after some quick prototyping (pun intended) I came up with a nice design to complement Chris’s work. Click on through for a complete gallery of images.
Forum member GeekSummit has shared pics of several outstanding custom figures in the 6″ scale that he’s made – be sure to check these out, and share your thoughts after the jump!
PROS: Merumeru is a very well done figure despite a few flaws in articulation. The sculpt captures the essence of the character and is enhanced by a quality deco which gives high- and lowlights to the fur. This figure also has some heft to it, but surprisingly, it’s not one of the largest Wookiee figures we’ve been offered over the years. Merumeru boasts a fair amount of accessories – all of which are new – including a great blaster and a two-piece battle staff with a headpiece that has some great detail/decoration which augments its phallic shape.
CONS: Hasbro (in what was surely a cost-saving measure) eliminated the waist joint – the result is a figure that leaves you wanting. The sculpted dreadlocks prohibit any real range of motion for the head.
