They are perfectly to scale for 3 3/4" figures.

Our intrepid reporter is gonna be busy next week! With not one, but two meetings with Hasbro, he is also gearing up to hit New York Comic-Con next weekend. Stay tuned here, our Twitter and Facebook Feeds, and of course the forums as we delve into all things Star Wars and Sci-Fi from this year's con.

If you have any questions or there is something you would like him to take a peek at let him know here.

I would also be remiss if I didn't send a big ole thank you to the REED POP folks and our reporter Dan "The Spectre" Kosa for kindly getting us the event coverage!



Panther is getting closer to being done too!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, September 23 2016
"Morning all

Last night I finally got a bit of time to carry on working on my diorama, phase 1 of this project is almost complete. I finished off building the steps to castle, making each step width 2cm on either side and 1cm depth from the previous one. then cutting two pieces of foam board for the foundation's, these pieces where measured from the bottom of the wall (or from the top of the top step) to the base of the bottom step. On the top of each piece I got my knife and sliced from down between the front piece of card and foam, this running the full length of of the board and a 1cm in depth. Then on the reverse of the board, across the top of each piece, I drew a line 1cm in depth and gently cut through the foam making sure that I did not go through the other side to the cut previous cut that I had done. This creating a lip on both my pieces of board. I then (using masking tape for now) stuck them to the bottom of the wall and behind the steps. As you can also see I have cut a rather large piece of board to act as the overall base of my structure.

I just need to cut a couple more pieces for around the base of the castle to make it secure before fixing the steps to the base and then proceeding with phase 2 - the painting of this structure.

I hope you like pictures!"

Well I know I sure do. This is gonna be great. I can't wait to see how he approaches all those banners!



Ron Hembling almost there on his latest project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, September 23 2016
"Hi All,

The shuttle hull is 95% done I just need to add the repelling lines and once the figures are done I just need to weather it.

The base itself just needs the ground work and figures added and a little bit of debri

Ron"

Remember that is a 6" Figure you see in there!



William is back with a new Astro-Mech...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, September 23 2016
I do believe this is of the TOR variety. It is great to see him scratch build works of art like this!

Custom Creator is back with a dio update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 22 2016
"Latest update. Feels good to get some color on these walls."

His dios are so realistic looking. It is hard to tell that this is an artist's rendering and not the real thing!



JDeck is back with a review and a new dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 22 2016
"I got one of the Revell Imperial Shuttles. Its the new recasting and the plastic isn't as white and shiny. That kind of sucks a little, but the paint apps are a little nicer. Other than that its the same shuttle as the earlier 2010 model. You can display it in both landed and in flight. It has landing gear, but I was too lazy to put it together just to show you. A lot of folks assume its 1/72 scale because of the figures it comes with, but they are way too big. I did my research and it comes out to 1/144.

I also got a couple Hot Wheels TIE fighters. I think they're about the same scale, 1/144 or so. The hot wheels TIE isnt too bad it is die cast so not a ton of detail, but itll work as background pieces. Personally I think they are better than the Black Series Titanium fighters, plus theyre inexpensive and very easy to find.

So I think making it Darth Vader's Shuttle, with TIE fighter entourage, would be cool. I thought about making the Endor Landing platform, but would be too dang big. Actually Im not sure what im going to do with it. Meybe take it apart again and run LEDs through it."

I think he is spot on with the scale. I look forward to seeing him finish this off. He has since updated with the start of his led work!



Mandalore 25 is back with a four pack!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 22 2016
"Been busy, got 4 figures done. The Darth Zannah is my classic recipe for her, Luminara Unduli with a MU Valkyrie head. Tahiri Veila, is a Toryn Farr with a MU Black Widow head.

If you're interested in Zannah

If you're interested in Tahiri"

They both look great to me. Look for us to feature his other two sometime soon, but make sure you scroll around once in thread!
