Darth Streams shows us an awesome Sith Lord for our BDay Challenge!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"The Emperor's Wrath is born! Lord Scourge after betraying Revan, Meetra, and t3-m4 during the coup attempt on the emperor." How can you not like this one folks! Don't forget we are just days away from finishing this one up. Don't forget your custom figure needs to come with a small dio, small vehicle, or deluxe accessory to enter. You can read the full details here.



We welcome the Iron Panda to ISY!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"Ironpanda proudly presents: Hasbro 6 inch Black Series Sandtrooper, I found the headsculpt in the parts bin. The joints and the creases are modified and an overall paint job was given." Wow, wow, wow! Folks please join me in welcoming just an awesome customizer to ISY. If this is his first post can you imagine his updates!



HALCION updates us on his six inch scale Snowspeeder...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"Back Side is almost done and will begin the underbelly and airbrush apps as soon as the main cannons are done." I just can't fathom how he creates the detail he does in the time he is posting this. He must never sleep!



Bronxstalker checks back in with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"And...here....we....go......Darth Sion (from Knights of the Old Republic):

I had a lot of fun creating him, because I never did something like this....creating scars with blood showing underneath.

Recipe:
*GI Dreadnought figure
*Some soft goods
*Aves apoxie for shoulder pad, boot straps, plates on skirt, and all over body and head to create scars
*Shoulder piece is attached via mini magnet, so I can remove it and put it back on pretty easily. I did it so that he had full mobility of the arm.
*Primed black with multiple layers of dry painting to get a dead skin look (and various red paints for blood)
*Used costume jewelry from Michaels for the bolts
* I didn't have any spare ligthsabers, so I made one from styrene tubes."

I think his description speaks for itself. Looks awesome!



Its a preview of a new chapter of Tales From The Clone Wars!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"Preview for the next issue, Descent Part Three!" I plan on savoring this on a break at work today. Trust me folks if you haven't read his great graphic fiction yet you are in for a treat!



Ron Hembling finishes his 6" Scale Probe Droid...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"When I saw HALCION's Probe Droid I knew that I had to give one a go and again thanks for the inspiration mate. The MK-V's were made 20yrs ago but are still used in harsher climate planets such as Tatooine as they are very tough and could adapt very quicly to almost any environment. Probe Droid MK-V - is a mixer of an old webcam, tooth pick lid, revoltech joints, plasti card tube, plasti card strips, 1/6 scale parts,1/35 scale parts and 1/72 scale parts, Hasbro parts and Star Trek model parts." What can I say other than I wish this was mass produced.



Candy Blues continues his Darth Plageuis six inch build...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"Well the lower legs are closer than ever to being finished. Just need to sculpt the cloth details on the back and ill start working my way up the body." The details are just so impressive on this.



HALCION is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"I have added some new parts and have begun parts placement for interior of cockpit!" He is of course referring to his great new six inch scale Snowspeeder. The Scale just looks perfect in comparison to his AT-AT.



Gus is back with an new one to one scale prop!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"Hey guys, new project. I designed a Star Wars Rebels Detonator as seen on the series. Here are some renders. Sizewise it's 3 inches in diameter. I am planing on 3d printing them soon here:

https://www.shapeways.com/model/2877044/rebels-detonator.html?li=aeTabs

I will be adding lights and sounds since it has ports for led, switches and speaker. Feedback is always welcomed." Are there some creative folks out there or what folks!

GG announces an Ugnaught Jumbo Kenner Figure!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, November 20 2014
The Ugnaught race is known for their industrious nature in the Star Wars Universe. Seen first in Star Wars; The Empire Strikes Back, the Ugnaughts were the primary laborors on the Cloud City of Bespin. They can be seen tinkering with all manner of electrical and mechanical items, essentially keeping Cloud City up and running.

Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” Kenner originals and reproduced in 12” scale to the rest of the jumbo Kenner line, no detail has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully re-produced tool kit, as well as it's fabric apron.

To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with a Empire Strikes Back-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition figure.

Digitally sculpted by our master artisans, using actual archival footage and designs, each Han Solo, Hero of Yavin Mini Bust is rendered using the highest quality polystone, and hand painted.
