I redid mine as well... stock head repainted, new body and hands and gave the outfit a tea bath and futzing. The sculpt is fantastic, but a touch oversized.

Thanks man and yep he's been gone for a good while now. Since march I think?? Hoping the rumours of an EP3 Obiwan PF are true b/c by the time HT does a figure, I'll probably be dead :lol

GB, OMG! That is amazing, , did you strip the paint off the original or paint over it?

Thanks :duff

As for the sculpt I just painted over it... I've heard stripping the Sideshow heads is pretty difficult and easy to overdo it. But if you could I imagine it might look better.

I don't think a tea bath is reversible... but honestly it is so light of an alteration that it's not too likely you'd overdo it. It will look extra dark when you pull it out, but give it a little rinse and let it dry and you'll see it's just a bit darker and more importantly looks less fresh and clean :lol

As you can tell by my avatar , Obi Wan is my favorite character. I have a Paul Carson Obi-Wan head in route and I can't wait to paint it up.
