Custom Figure: Star Wars Black Series Hem Dazon, A New Hope

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

I have always dabbled in Action Figure customs, starting way back in the late 1990's with the Star Wars Power of the Force Line, and then into the 5-inch Doctor Who line, and most recently with a handful of Marvel Select MCU figures. I've had to give things a break for quite some time due to illness, but I've finally picked up again with some projects on the go for the Star Wars Black Series - taking advantage of the very talented 3D printing community and sellers.

Many of my current projects are based on either the Star Wars Cantina or Jabba's Palace ad the first project completed is this interpretation of the Cantinia's Hem Dazon. In A New Hope, we only see Hem Dazon's head at the start of the Cantina sequence, so this figure is based loosely on the 3.75" figure from 2006.

The brilliant head and hands of the figure are LandSpeederLuke prints, 3D printed here in the UK by CBPrints3D on Etsy. These were painted in Acrylics and then added onto the base body which is taken from Rogue One's Bodhi Rook with the vest removed. The gun belt is from Greedo, while the vest is from the Black Series Jawa with the piping cut off at the back The figure is finished off with a pair of shoulder armor pieces to cover the original Imperial logo - these are simply false nails painted up in acrylic.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
