Photo 7: This became the first manufacturing challenge for L3D, since I decided to have the Bounty Hunter’s mohawk of spines laid in with individual brass rods. There are about 100 spines per head, all hand glued in place.
Photo 12: But not all of my over-engineering makes it to the final product! I was very concerned that Greedo's large, pointy ears and suction cup like antenna would not survive in polystone, so I initially opted to make them as separate white metal pieces. The ears turned out to be too heavy, and we had more issues with them falling off in the drop tests then we had breakage with the cold cast ones. I believe the pewter antenna stayed, although it has been 16 some-odd years since I reviewed these things on the assembly line, so I could be wrong!!!
