I take no claim for this recipe. I had seen a handful of Han-in-Stormtrooper-Disguise custom figures online, but I could never justify the expense to make my own. That is, until I found a vintage Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper disguise) for dirt cheap on eBay. The original Luke head was badly mangled, but that drove the price down to my advantage so that I could actually afford the parts for this project. I then tracked down a “small head” vintage Han Solo and was able to swap in the new head after soaking the parts in a bath of near-boiling water. This softened up the plastic enough for me to safely remove and interchange the parts. Finally, the Stormtrooper helmet accessory was an excellent reproduction piece I picked up off eBay.

Though there was no painting involved, and this project involved nothing more than swapping around a few parts, I’m still happy to have it on my shelf. My OCD brain can now rest easy knowing that both Luke and Han now have vintage figures of their Stormtrooper disguises.
