“Rogue” The Grey Jedi

My original idea for my Grey Jedi was to have him begin life with the Owen Lars model, then I figured I would use a Saga Legends Obi-Wan Kenobi body…so I went for a Photoshop concept of how I wanted these pieces to fit together. I thought about making him completely blind due to some accident, but then opted to scar his right eye and the skin around it with a burn and then provide a cool tattoo around his left eye…used Mike Tyson’s tribal facial tattoo as inspiration. This is the concept piece I came up with below.

Ditched this idea. So back to the drawing board and decided to go with the Legacy Collection BD06 Obi-Wan Kenobi figure as his base, ¬†Shadows of the Dark Side – Comic Pack¬†Owen Lars’ robe, Zartan #1010 for his head, CW45 Anakin Skywalker’s ungloved robotic arm, two lightsabers (the dual bladed one is getting used on another custom) and the scarf from the Legacy Collection BD01 Han Solo.

I had to repaint Zartan’s head…looks like he was left in direct sunlight and it left his head two-tone. I also repainted the eye tattoos. His right arm I cut just below the swivel elbow and used green stuff to bind the robotic forearm and the original arm together so it looked like the shirt was bunched up at that point.

So here is my blinded, not so good, not so evil Jedi.
