Babylon 5 Minbari Figure

Bill Mumy_Lennier
Before there were any Babylon 5 action figures, I decided to make a generic Minbari action figure for myself. I decided to make a Minbari from the Religious caste. If you haven’t seen Babylon 5, then I will explain. The Minbari have 3 castes in thier society. The 3 castes are the Worker caste, Religious caste, and the Warrior caste. The Minbari Ambassador to Babylon 5 is Ambassador Delenn of the Religious caste.

For the body I used the body from the Data as a Romulan figure. I had an extra Captain Picard head laying around so I used it for the Minbari head. I used Milliput for the bone on the back of the head and painted it for the bone look. It took me a long time to get the shading right in the cracks of the bone to make it look correct. I used a little milliput for the ridge on the nose and over the eyes. I cut the ears off and trimmed them down some to make them smaller, then I glued them lower down under the edge of the bone. After a little bit of blue paint on the top of the head and some skin color touch ups, it was finished.
