Custom Ziro the Hutt Sculpture

January 13, 2013

I got this resin cast of Ziro the Hutt from an eBay seller. It’s a little on the rough side, both in terms of the quality of the sculpt and the quality of the casting — lost of bubbles on the underside. But you don’t see many Ziro collectibles, so I guess it’s not bad to have one. It looks a bit better in person than these pictures would imply.

I think they intended it to be used as a stand-in for an action figure-scale Ziro, which Hasbro has surprisingly never made. As you can see below, it’s roughly the size of the Power of the Force Jabba figure.

I had originally intended to paint this up, but it would take a lot of work to fill the bubbles and otherwise finish the casting, not to mention the trouble of painting all of his tattoos, etc., so I’ll probably leave it the way it is. It’s not a bad match for the other unpainted resin sculptures I have, like the garage kit or the resin model kit.
