Hi guys, long time imperial here looking at doing an Ackbar for my next project! Just wondering if anyone has any sources for the head and hands? Doesn't seem to be too much info floating around for this character, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nice to see you in here Wade, There is a member in Vic that has a brilliant Ackbar . The best I have ever seen and I believe he simply purchased it off eBay . I'll see if I can track him down. Smile

YAYAY!!!

It's great to see you here. Very Happy

I'd suggest posting in THIS forum asking for the parts you need.

And THIS forum when you start getting bits together so people can help you out if they can and let you know if your doing things right or wrong. You might also be able to hunt through there for threads of Akbar.

Let us know if you need help. Smile

The members name was Quarren from hoth base (Vic) if you are interested. The workmanship on the mask and hands make me drool.

Good luck and I sure hope you do this (Ackbar dancing Wade style, ohh yeah) Razz

Not sure if this member is still making them but it might be worth sending him a a pm.

He certainly has some great aliens heads and hands to offer.

He can probably even make limbs that have been cut off by a lightsaber Very Happy

**Ackbar and Gamorrean **I make the aliens you want.
