Hammerhead Jedi?

I really liked my ’70s action figure Hammerhead…he was always one of my favorites, and when I started picking up these WotC Star Wars miniatures I had wanted to create an Ithorian (Hammerhead) Jedi. So I did a Google search for Ithorian Star Wars miniatures and came up with these two pieces, an Ithorian Scout and Commander.

Then I bumped into this piece of artwork.

The scout then looked to have more promise as a starting point and so I picked up one on eBay…fortunately the sale fell through as the seller was out of stock. Then I found out there was already an Ithorian Jedi called Roron Corobb…look, I know just enough about the Star Wars universe from my childhood days so I was surprised that there was a character like this. Then I went diggin’ to see if WotC made one of these miniatures…they did, so I bought one straight away.

Of course the paint job was an abomination, but I did get it cheap enough, so went looking for a suitable paint scheme to follow and chose the Gentle Giant Roron Corobb Maquette, and if I had $90 I’d get it!

So here is the final result of my Hammerhead Jedi, Roron Corobb.

I can see a mistake around his eye that needs to be taken care of and some of the shading on his skin is lost in the photo, but I am surprised how well the lightsaber highlights and blending has shown up. Even with all my little mistakes here and there, this guy was a blast to paint!
