"The Jedi Exploration Corps, or ExplorCorps, was organized officially as the Archaeological and Research Division of the Service Corps, and was instrumental in the discovery of many of the galaxy's ancient, forgotten secrets as well as the mapping of several of the galaxy's hyperspace routes.

This Rodian explorer worked for ExplorCorps 1,000 years BBY.


Arms, torso: TPM Obi-Wan
Legs: Tatooine Luke
Head and hands: Pax Bonkik
Chest harness: Tartakovsky Obi Wan figure"

Pretty good recipe if you ask me. The full gallery of all the entrants is here:

I-am-Boba-Fett is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, June 28 2017
"Here's an all new Star Wars custom SKIFF MERCENARY figure that I was commissioned to create for a customer. I sculpted an all new helmet for this custom figure and then made a mold of that new helmet sculpt and head. I then resin cast the new helmet and head for use on this custom figure. This character is seen in Return of the Jedi.

This 3.75"/1:18 scale custom figure features:
- Custom made solid one piece resin cast head and helmet
- Custom made resin cast Blaster Pistol
- Custom paint work
- Custom sculpt work
- Fully poseable multi-articulated body
- Custom made harness and attached resin cast ammo and pouches"

Looks pretty awesome to me. So hoping we can get some of these characters made by Hasbro some day.

"Hi All,

More updates, the station consoles are now coming together very nicely.


I would say so. It is gonna be another homeroom for Ron.

JDeck starts an Aquaman Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, June 28 2017
"I started a real quick Aquaman diorama. This is pretty much the basic idea. The statue is an aquarium decoration of Poseidon. I first cut it in half, then I sanded it to make it look like it had been underwater for a couple thousand years. I started making some ruin blocks, one of which I added the Aquaman symbol to using epoxy clay. The plants are leftovers from the ones I used on my Endor display, I forgot what company it was. Im also using some tiny shells, and ground up shells, for added details. I just need to paint some things, pour the plaster/sand and suspend Aquaman in a floating position."

Looks pretty good to me. Be sure to take a look at his DC Icons Aquaman Figure Review in the Imperial Archives Section too.

"Entry # 2:

Dr. Eblin
was a distinguished professor of archeology at the University of Coruscant who left the classroom for the field. A deceased friend left Eblin with a treasure trove of datapads listing lost civilization. Now he roams the Middle and Outer Rims looking for these lost societies. It's not without its danger: a deadly spider bit Eblin while on one dig. Without access to an immediate medical center, Eblin cut his arm off. A cybernetic arm now serves him."

Ron Hembling shares new work on his Star Trek Bridge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 27 2017
"Hi All,

Another small update on the bridge.

I have done the end sections of the consoles and also the roof section leading into the turbo lift, I have used foam board for these and then glued all the sections together except the capt chair and helm and navigation section so that I can work on the bridge without obstructions.

The roof to the turbo lift has had fly screen mesh added to it and will later get frosted plastic for the light cover.


It is really taking shape now!

Gentle Giant announces next SDCC Exclusive...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 27 2017
"Dianoga Trash Monster Jumbo Figure

When the vintage Death Star Space Station Playset was released in 1978 the designers had to take some creative license on the included trash compactor monster. We all knew about the eye stalk and the tentacles, but the wings, the mouth full of teeth and the fin were a revelation to us kids. Now the thing lurking in the muck of the Death Star had a “face.”

Grab your Jumbo Han, Luke, Leia and Chewbacca because now you can re-enact the pulse-pounding trash compactor scene from Star Wars: A New Hope with the convention exclusive Jumbo Dianoga Trash Monster! Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars with part of one of the greatest playsets in the history of toys!

Scanned from the original vintage figure/accessory and reproduced in the 12” scale, Gentle Giant’s Jumbo Dianoga Trash Monster comes packed with accurate 3-color foam “trash” and in a spectacular vintage inspired full color box!

Gentle Giant Ltd’s Jumbos - Just like you remember, only BIGGER!"

Ron Hembling shares more of his latest diorama project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, June 26 2017
"Hi All,

Last bit of work on the USS Enterprise bridge for the night. This will be the size I'm doing but will keep templates for further additions to the bridge. The turbo lift is done except the roof section and the floor has been raised.


I really enjoy old school Star Trek. This is really looking awesome. Ron just needs to put Kirk in his "Fire" pose.

Ron Hembling continues his 6" AT-AT Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, June 25 2017
"Hi All,

Re-started the AT-AT head again for Shawn and have done some extra add ons to the hull using foam board and tomorrow I'll start adding the hull plates and details.

The cannons so far have been made using plastic card and I still need to add more details to them, the semi circle section will be done using some small party plates I have and the foam circles are for mounting them.


Wow. Wow. Wow! Can you tell I am a little bit excited by this. Ron just does some astounding work.
