Studies have now proven what I have long suspected: The cantina scene in Star Wars is a lifelong favorite of all good and decent earthlings. Only the soulless can resist it, which is probably why “Disney Princesses on Ice” like Hoth. (And Leia’s slave bikini. And celery sandwiches, no mayo, hold the bread.) Anyway, decent people dig that cantina scene because of the large cast of lovable, multi-lingual, multi-violent rogues who go there to drink, threaten violence, die by violence, or listen to pleasant space jazz. Personally, I could never have enough of the cantina figures when I was a kid. Rawr. Extreme! Weirdness!
Since I can’t possibly improve upon the original Kenner figures, however, I won’t alter those. Instead, I’ll alter a dull and ordinary bar set to make it into a STAR WARS BAR SET.
Initially, I planned to use clay on all four heads, but perhaps you can see the problem with that plan.
To adjust and adapt, I tried to make most of the additions to Ponda Baba extend forward, rather than to the side:
More pics next week, so stay tuned! Force. You. Be. Et cetera.
