Plo Koon - Star Wars The Phantom Menace / Attack of the Clones / Revenge of the Sith

RETIRED - This is no longer in my collection.

Plo Koon, an imposing alien whose face was concealed behind a forked facemask. His well-muscled humanoid form filled out the traditional Jedi robes. Koon was present on the Council when Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn presented Anakin Skywalker as a prospective Jedi candidate. He also served the Council a decade later when the Jedi faced one of their greatest conflicts: the Clone Wars. Plo Koon was present at the first battle site of the Clone Wars, fighting against Geonosians and Battle Droid forces in the cauldron of the Geonosian execution arena. Plo Koon served valiantly as a general in the war on many battlefronts in the years that followed.
During the Outer Rim Sieges, Plo Koon was stationed on Cato Neimoidia, flying scouting missions over the bridge cities of the conquered world. It was then that Order 66 was enacted, branding every Jedi in the galaxy as an enemy of the Republic.
Plo Koon's clone wingmen carried out the order, communicated to them directly from Palpatine. Aboard ARC-170 starfighters, the clone commander pilot opened fire. Plo Koon's starfighter spun out of control and crashed into the Neimoidian city below.
I first built the body form out of 2" PVC Pipe. For the chest area I used heavy guage wire to bulk out the body form. Then I wrapped the body form with foam and secured it down with duct tape.

The Yellow circles indicate the joints of the body form that I did not glue.

With a tan turtle neck shirt and brown Vv-neck shirt I dressed the form. I also placed on the head which is a mask to get an idea on how it would look.
I knew from the start that the bottom would be open since I was not going to use boots on this body form. So I painted the bottom of the PVC body form flat black.
To help hold the robe open near the bottom I placed some heavy guage wire. This will keep the bottom of the robe from falling into the middle of the body form.
For the hands of Plo Koon I used a pair of monster gloves. I modified them by painting the nails black.
Then I mixed up some paint that matched the colors on the mask and painted the hands.

The robe was made by Tammy Wilderman.
