Custom Jedi is back with a Spacer Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 6 2015
"Danz Borin: He's not terribly interesting but he is in the cantina so I was determined to give him an upgrade over the old version I did back in the 90s."

Wow, it sure is a huge makeover compared to his first version!

Ron Hembling starts a Stormtrooper Han Diorama...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 6 2015
"Started another small dio and figure and this time it's Han in Stormtrooper disguise, I have completed Han and now I'm 80% completed on the base.

Han - the body is from Bandai and the head is from Hasbro's 6" BS, I repainted the 6" head has the sculpt underneath the crappy factory paint is very good.

I re-sculpted the neck covering using AVES putty and drilled a hole and inserted wire into that, I drilled a hole in the bottom of the head so it can be removed. The helmet was built and glued together and once dry I drilled out the bottom so that I could also insert it onto the neck.

Base - has been built up using foam core and then added plasti card to build up the walls, the vent looking area's were done buy using fly screen and gluing that down onto some plastic card then adding frame work around that.

The floor has been painted then clear plastic added over the top, once the final stage is done the floor will be sprayed matt black then clear plastic will be again added over the top of the painted floor."

Looks fantastic already to me.

The Irish Rogue continues Oasis Calm...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 6 2015
"Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Oasis Calm Volume III continued ---- Part 2.

Commander Bly observed the pair while he followed them as a shadow. Each leaned in closely to whisper delicate words, even share several laughs. Looking closer, he saw the Chairman’s robes were not as glamorous as the temple’s initial grandeur. It seemed the prime reached its zenith decades prior; a time before sand, wind, war, and strife had taken its toll."

See what Aayla Secura gets into in this latest chapter.

Folks there are some awesome, and I mean awesome deals to be had over at Dorkside Toys Right now. For example, how does a six inch Hoth Han with Taun Taun Deluxe for $29 sound? The Hoth Luke with Wampa is the same price. And the new 6" Commander Cody for $15! Don't worry there is still some love given to the 3 and 3/4 inch line too. I don't know what they might be imbibing over there, but daggone I already put my order in!

Darth Daddy is back with a custom vehicle!
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, July 5 2015
"It's been a while since we created a custom vehicle, but when Hole in the Ground Productions released casts of their "Troop Transport" we knew it would be a great addition to our Star Wars collection. First we weathered up the cast pieces. Then, we used some decals that we purchased on eBay to accompany the stickers that were included with our original purchase to really personalize our vehicle once it was assembled. One decal set we bought had some beautiful designs that were created by the talented graphic designer Viper Aviator. We also used some reproduction decals that were from the Vintage Rebel Transport to give it the finishing touches we desired. We really love the way it turned out. It looks awesome on Elias' Hoth display shelf!"

I think it looks fantastic. I am gonna have to order one of these myself. I also liked the addition of our very own Viper Aviator's graphics to the vehicle. Make sure if you are getting said graphics off of eBay that you get em from reputable sources folks. This has been a problem for VA lately as we featured a few weeks ago.

Buy Arc Clone Trooper: Echo Phase II Armor from SSC!
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, July 5 2015
"From the award-winning animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the ARC Clone Trooper: Echo Phase II Armor Sixth Scale Figure from our Militaries of Star Wars collection.

Given the official designation CT-21-0408, the Clone Trooper known as ‘Echo’ earned his nickname early on for his tendency to repeat every order on assignment. Trained with Domino Squad on Kamino alongside his fellow squadmate, Fives, the two were transferred to the 501st Legion under the command of Captain Rex, and later promoted to the prestigious ARC trooper status after bravely defending Kamino from Separatist invaders. Featuring a newly designed portrait with a battle-hardened expression, the heroic Republic soldier is fully equipped with ARC trooper armor distinguished with custom markings and blue handprint, a complete arsenal of weapons, and full range of articulation to create action-packed displays.

As an intergalactic conflict rages on, a massive army of Clone Troopers fights in service of the Republic. Build your army!"

Wow, now that was one awesome showcasing of Sideshow Products they have sent out in their latest newsletter!

Our friends at Yakface.com put me onto a cool SW: TFA One Sheet Deal...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, July 4 2015
I have been trying forever to get a one sheet regular poster for the new movies. I was bugging the manager at the local movie theater for their horrible treatment of the one they had up (it has rips and creases and dings all over it) so alas I thought it would be forever till I was able to add this to my poster collection. Well, good ole Jason (I can say that as I am old too) over at the Yak share the fact that you could get this through the Disney Movie Rewards Program.

You can sign up at the link if you are not already a member. I mean, I bought my daughter tons of Disney Movies (well I like em too) and they had Movie Rewards Certificates in em with codes that I had no idea how to use. Till today! You can also get points from taking a picture of your movie stubs and uploading them too. If I can do it its pretty easy folks.
