Knockoff Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and C-3PO would be the first figures released, and if those sold well, then R2-D2 (packed with the robot dog), the stormtrooper/ jawas, and the space guy seen in the foreground would be made next. And of course there'd be vehicles!
Well, I couldn't imagine these being made anytime soon, so I thought it seemed like a fun project to make them myself, each a one-of-a-kind piece not to be sold, though.
On June 1st, 2011, it was time... I found some color clay I had under my bed that I figured I could make the toys out of. I wanted my brother to help me out and he wanted to, so we started our work. I really wanted to make Darth, but I didn't have any black clay. I settled on Chewbacca, who I always thought looked hilarious on the figure case. I didn't have any tan clay for his face and hands, but brown would have to do. My brother wanted to sculpt the C-3PO figure.
The minutes went by, and after a while, my brother got the idea of what 3PO was going to look like using the cheap-o clay I had, and he decided that the results weren't worth the time. Clay is really not all that easy to work with on such a small scale, but I did end up with a decent looking Chewbacca head. But, sadly, that's all.
His chin and mouth are a little off and his head isn't as tall, but whatever! He is what he is: a weird looking Star Wars wannabe.
He actually looks less like a monkey than the Power of the Force 2 Leia! Heh heh, no, not really. I remember hearing one time that the sculptor of the POTF2 Leia head said that it's difficult to sculpt a face at such a small scale, and my little craft project here further proved his statement to me.
I really would've liked a complete set of Star World figures, but it won't be happening anytime soon. All I have now is a creepy knockoff Wookiee head on a toothpick poked into a tinfoil 'n' tape base...
