Tron Calamari by jasonhohoho Tron Calamari by jasonhohoho
also posted on my sketchblog: [link]

So, Dave and I were talking about Tron and Star Wars action figures, and the following happened:
6:40:11 PM ME: so i opened my white light cycle
6:40:14 PM ME: and it's awesome
6:40:21 PM ME: but i had two thoughts
6:40:39 PM ME: 1) white light cycle would match ackbar's white uniform
6:40:42 PM ME: or
6:41:12 PM ME: 2) blue lights would match a blue mon calamari, but i would have to put the mon cal head on a tron body w/ blue lights
6:41:16 PM ME: ._.
6:41:18 PM ME: just sayin

6:41:35 PM DAVE: lol
6:41:37 PM DAVE: oh man
6:41:46 PM DAVE: you ponder that some more
6:41:47 PM DAVE: or DRAW IT
6:41:52 PM DAVE: and put it on your sketch blog
6:42:04 PM DAVE: TRON CALAMARI
6:42:06 PM DAVE: omg
6:42:13 PM DAVE: i basically just gave you that for free

6:42:15 PM ME: O_O
6:42:18 PM ME: NICE
And thus was born a custom figure created from Star Wars action figure Ibtisam (info/figure) and Tron: Legacy action figure Sam Flynn (info):



I'm not an experienced customizer by any means, so this was a pretty basic head and arm swap. First, I used the boil-and-pop method to remove the relevant body parts from the original figures. Ibtisam's forearms plugged right into Sam Flynn's elbows, but as a result the custom's arms are a bit short. The socket in Ibtisam's head was too big, so I bummed some Epoxy putty off of Hammers to partially fill in the socket, and then used the superglue method to make the ball joint fit tightly. Aaand then I drew the picture you're looking at now.

So, for those of you keeping track at home:
  • I have purchased Tron: Legacy toys.
  • I have made a custom Tron Calamari figure.
  • I have drawn dorky fan-art of Tron Calamari.
  • I am listening to the Tron: Legacy soundtrack at home, in my car, and at work.
  • I have been flipping through the pages of the Tron: Legacy artbook.
  • I have not seen the movie yet...
  • ... but have tickets for a 3D IMAX screening on Saturday morning.
It feels good to post again. If you're reading this, thank you.
