Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted action figures of Luke’s fellow X-Wing Pilots Biggs Darklighter and Wedge Antilles. Biggs had the amazing deco on his flight helmet, and Wedge always seemed so calm and cool under pressure.

This custom figure is an extension of my Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot piece that I had begun earlier. While looking up reference material, I realized that after all this time I simply never noticed that the original Kenner X-Wing Luke action figure never had gloves included on his final sculpt. To help make Biggs and Wedge stand apart (and to be a bit more accurate), I swapped in the gloved arms from an AT-ST Driver. Using a Dremel, I then hollowed out the helmet so that the figure could hold onto it. The head comes from a G.I. Joe Wildcard figure, which was then repainted. The head is slightly too detailed to blend in with the vintage Kenner style, but at the same time it adds some nice variety and doesn’t feel like a repaint of a Han or Luke headsculpt.

“It’ll be like old times, Luke. They’ll never stop us.”
