Perhaps you’ve seen that hot pink stormtrooper toy with the suspiciously large crotch, or those crystal clear casts of iconic toys with gnarled bone white skeletons inside. Have you wondered why someone would make a sparkly snow white esque witch and then replaced her hands with additional heads, like some sort of human Hydra? You may not even care that Frankenstein and Boba Fett would never co-exist, but a figure of the two combined sounds like a killer idea to you. Sound like you? Great, then come to this panel. A discussion of the merits and demerits of using pre-existing figure parts to make new creations as well as a look at where the scene began and where it may go.
