No words. Just Utooni. Okay a few words…
It’s been a while. I’m always working on stuff but I’m really bad about sharing it. Looking to post here more often, if nothing else just to have my ideas down. Anyway, I tried building Utooni from the upcoming Star Wars game Hunters.
These little ones were no easy task. Took a few tries to get one I was happy enough with sharing. Utooni is simply two Jawas scrapped from the waist down. Lower Jawa (are they collectively Utooni, both named Utooni..?) has a 2×4 bracket on his back supporting a brick-built backpack to hold the second Jawa up as close to the shoulder area I could manage. I tried half a dozen combinations of capes before settling on The Last Jedi Luke Skywalker’s cape, which isn’t a match for color but does hide the backpack slightly better with its shape.
