And now how I made it:

 

When I saw the 31" Jakks Pacific Darth Vader I immediately thought that it would make a great base for a custom Galactus. It was gigantic and the arms and legs were close enough to a Galactus design that I wouldn't have to modify them except for some coats of paint.

 

 

So I bought one when they went on sale and it has been collecting dust and I kindof forgot about the project. However this custom contest put on by TNI gave me a good reason to dust it off and try my project.

I started by modeling the head in sketchup. I found a face on the warehouse and built up the helmet around it. I then divided it into 5 pieces so that it would print flat on a 3D printer bed. I printed it up (in neon green of all colors) and glued it together.

I also printed a neck piece for connecting to vader's body. This took a few trys to get the height just right.

Next up I worked on the chest. I wanted a working light in it so I just a laser cutter to cut a hole in vader's chest.

I then designed a led light housing in sketchup, printed it out, and added the LED light. The lens were laser cut and stacked to add detail to the chest light.

I then fitted it into the body and made the shoulder straps and waist coat out of chip board.
