JDeck rocks another WW2 Star Wars Mash Up!
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, November 30 2015
"I'm pretty finished with this one. I like it, he's pretty cool. If I were to to it again I'd change some things. I like the way the skull cap turned out, I'm becoming more confident in my sculpting skills. I went ahead and weathered him I just like the look better."

I absolutely love the look of this line he has going on. His latest Luftwaffe Pilot just looks spot on and incorporates a German Pilot and a TIE Pilot perfectly in my opinion. I can't wait to see what he shows us next!

Larifari shows us a tribute diorama to Ralph McQuarrie...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, November 30 2015
"I'm a big fan of Ralph McQuarrie's concept work.(I was always curious about how it might look like his early concept works in 3D).Well, I had some free days to do something. The whole room is in ruins, paint and glue everywhere , but I hope it was worth it."

Well I sure think it was. Wow!

Larifari shows us some great graphic artwork...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, November 30 2015
I don't know how I missed these, but he has given us some wonderful graphic artwork based on action figure customs set in various SW Environs. I thought the one you see above was great!

Neat looking custom pilot!

Folks they were kind enough to send me a complimentary copy to review and I must admit I enjoyed it immensely even though it is aimed at younger age readers. I think you could enjoy this magazine whatever the age!

Have you seen Clonehead's new stuff?

From custom Finn and FO Stormtrooper helmets to AT-AT Missles to just great deals on figures and ships you really ought to go check out his eBay Store!

He doesn't try to gouge you and you really pick up some great pieces, the ones that you need, rather than having to buy an entirely new action figure for just one part!

Stan is back with new Cantina SA Work...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 29 2015
"Finally finished up the two cantina patrons, Djas Puhr and Dannik Jerrico!

Although we truly do not see below Djas waistline , He now has more Screen accurate torso and sleeves! Hope everyone like these Updates of these two characters! Next up 8D8 and Lak Sirvak!"

I will be looking forward to seeing those customs too. It is great to see so much range of movement in his action figures.

Jedi Minstrel is back with a Jedi Custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 29 2015
"Few Jedi begin their training at a late age. Tiklin was in his early 30ís by human standards when he began his training. The Jedi Master, Hidmir, came across Tiklin during a Mon Calamari/Quarren dispute on their home world of Dac around 3475 years before the Battle of Yavin."

And that is just the start of a most excellent backstory for this custom Jedi.

Tonphanan is back with an Action Force Custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 29 2015
"Chattle from G.I. Joe Action Force"

Talk about some great work there. It is pretty much spot on with his reference image.

MAXX Replicas shows us his latest Hasbro Vehicle Conversion...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 29 2015
"Here's my latest conversion: Hasbro "HERO" X-WING with Diorama."

It is so hard to believe these are stock Hasbro Vehicles that he simply soups up to the superb models that would be worthy of Industrial Light and Magic. Wow!

He also has a great site where you can see more images too.

Starchaser is back with another great EU Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 29 2015
"Here's Squib with his crew:

I've added Taver Bo to the mix. He's just a Fangboat pack-in Swamp Viper with some weathering and a Coruscant firefighter backpack and spray gun. I still have one crew member to go."

I am really liking those droids. I can see a Marvel Doc Oc in some of their creation. Very cool parts mixes out of Starchaser lately!
