This is another figure inspired by Mass Effect, this time by the rotund Volus species. I immediately thought of them when I saw the base figure, and spent a while trying to figure out how to go about translating the idea into the Star Wars universe.
I turned to my friends over at the forums at Yakface.com and got some really good suggestions for what Star Wars aliens might match the look I was going for. But when forum member Tonphanan suggested the Gand, I knew he was on to something.
Since the original base figure lacked any real articulation other than the neck and arms, I used some magnets to make the head and hands interchangeable. This way, he gets a little more range of motion in the wrists and we get to sneak a peek at who's under that mask.
I imagine Volussk to be a Gand in his twilight years, spending his days alone in space doing salvage operations on derelict and abandon space craft.
