Hi guys I found this luke in a lot, arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh affraid

I was missing that figure with that coo, the body looks really nice. But the head is totally blasted away, arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh affraid what kind of kid can do such a thing.

Please don't get a chock if you find this one in my variants, I will keep it until I find another one with that coo. Do any of you know if it is possible to change the head without damage the figure ?

I tried to make some fun out of that figure, to keep the mood high Laughing

WTF! What happened to him? Someone use him for a teething ring or something? lol!

As for head swapping, those came with the heads with pegs on them. Not sure if you could do the boil and pop on it or not and not damage it. What COO is it by the way?

Hi Chris,

I don't know what happened to him, but I think it must have been a kid lol! Funny it is only the head there is damaged. The arms and legs are very tight.

I have never tried to swap heads, but I just thought if I could find a head that looked like the one one that figure without the damage. Then I could swap them and get a nice figure.

The coo is a no coo. Coo guide no. 5

Great bit of humour! Laughing

A real shame about the damage, the body looks very white with excellent paint.

Unfortunately the way the head on that figure is attatched I don't think there is an easy way of doing a swap.
A few years ago someone told me they attempted a head swap on a pin head Han. Aparently they managed to partly prise the torso apart, swaped the head & glued it back together. The torso of the donor figure cracked in the process, so I would'nt recommend it.

Hi cantina_patron, thanks lol!

Maybe I should just keep the figure as a custom to some funny scenes when I get a better variant Very Happy

Agreed, head & neck are one piece & even if you managed to get a donor head off without breaking the neck, getting it back in will be nearly impossible.

Funny scenes Lars Laughing Poor Luke looks like he blew his brains out with a shotgun!

You should add your pics to here... Limelight For The Rejects: http://forum.rebelscum.com/t948277/ if you're a member of RS?

If not I'm sure you'll still enjoy seeing the other 'battle damaged' figures on display there Very Happy

Maybe you should add a disclaimer: No action figures were harmed in the making of these pics.

Hi Marco,

Good idea, you must only see it if you are over 18 years old and no figures was harmed under the shooting of the pictures lol!

Maybe lol! But I think it would have eaten the whole figure and it is illegal to have a pitbull here in denmark Gam Guard
