Mandalore 25 is back with a work in progress...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, June 29 2016
"Been working on a Terentatek for my 195th figure, here's the work so far, shaved him down, sculpt him up, and put a base coat on."

Wow, that is spot on with his reference image. I like it! And congrats on a 195th custom!

BDC41866 gives us more!

"Havent posted in awhile so here is a Stennes Shifter mercenary /thug. Im thinking part of a Hutts retinue o maybe a swoop gang member. More to come..."

I always like seeing that last part.

The Closet Jedi shows us his Tantive IV Hallway...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, June 29 2016
"So here is my Tantive IV Hallway with door.

Its been printed at shape ways and I love it. Still a work in progress most of the detail painting has to be done. This section will be printed in three Parts. Left side with floor. Right side wall that fits perfectly against it and the Arch way and door wall in one piece. The left and right walls will be available in many different combinations or any way you want it. I have printed enough of these to be sure that each piece will print out beautifully each time.

Right Now I am trying to complete the whole Tantive IV corridor for myself. I would like to have a two foot section with a angled hallway and side hallway entrance for Princess Leia's transfer of the plans to r2D2. I am sure most of you have seen that incredible diorama on youtube where some one built a long corridor out of paper."

It looks great to me!

I-am-Boba-Fett is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 28 2016
"Here's a custom Resin Cast RANAT Figure that was recently made by me. Every piece of this custom figure is resin cast and it has poseable arms.

This custom figure stands 2 3/8" tall and it is in scale with all 3.75" action figures. A small strong magnet is embedded into his right hand and also into the resin cast Tusken Battle Talisman that he plans on trading to a Jawa in Mos Eisley."

Pretty cool if you ask me!

Blizzard Force making real a lost German Vintage Kenner Line!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 28 2016
"Well...there were several vintage lines worldwide. The UK had Palitoy, France Meccano, Mexico Lili Ledy etc... In Germany the distributor was Parker, years ago pics surfaced of this flyer with mockups:

...note the Stormtrooper on the far right with a German logo. ;) However, this concept seems to never have been realized....well, until now, that is. ;) I've designed a new front and reverse side (full German text) for the first 12... I'm currently trying out materials because I'm using satin photo paper (instead of glossy) for the first time..."

Once again this is so great. I can't wait to see what he gives us as the final entry on this one. So awesome to see vintage like this.

Anovos Storm Trooper Kits are back...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 28 2016
"ATTENTION: The kit is recommended for greater customization options during fitting, but a pre-assembled ensemble will also be available. Please note that build times and difficulty levels vary between users, and as such there isn't a definitive "baseline." New builders to full-size armor kits will likely require more time and expense than those who have previous experience in building similar armor kits.

Stormtroopers are elite shock troops fanatically loyal to the Empire and impossible to sway from the Imperial cause. They wear imposing white armor, which offers a wide range of survival equipment and temperature controls to allow the soldiers to survive in almost any environment. ANOVOS is proud to offer the STAR WARS™ Imperial Stormtrooper costume available as a do-it-yourself kit, with optional soft goods suite (neck seal, undersuit, and gloves). Shipping estimated to begin January 2017. Pre-order items are subject to change in availability and features.

Do-It-Yourself Kit (Without Soft Goods)

This kit includes details duplicated using 3D scans and reference taken from the original asymmetrical hand sculpted assets combined with idealized elements.

Stormtrooper armor is designed to fit a person that is between (but not limited to) 5 ft. 8 in. to 6 ft. (1.7m to 1.8m) in height, with a mesomorphic body type (see chart below).

Armor pieces require trimming, clean-up and physical assembly.

Basic snaps, strapping, and hook and loop suite is included for mounting of armor pieces.

Helmet and components are made from vacuum formed UV protected ABS plastic.

The visor lens is made of green tinted plastic and is adjustable.

Helmet size adjustment system ensures a comfortable and secure fit.

Equipment belt with blaster rifle holster is assembled and ready to wear.

Footwear and blaster not included.
Tools, paint, and glue not included.

Optional Soft Goods

Soft goods add-on option includes neck seal, undersuit, and gloves in sized sets of Medium through 2XL.

Neck seal features ribbing and bib.
Undersuit is two-piece with mock turtleneck collar and stirrups.
Gloves are black rubber similar to the original screen-used items.


$450.00 USD for do-it-yourself kit.
$650.00 USD for do-it-yourself kit with soft goods.
This item is eligible for Payment Plan options."

Stronox is back with a new Sith...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, June 27 2016
"Been trying to upgrade my pictures lately. Since I am working in multiple scales, I thought it would be nice to be clear right on the pics. Anyways, I have been doing some other genres as well but here is my latest Star Wars fig...Darth Nihilus with Joe style hip articulation, fabric tunic, new saber, and wire seamed fabric cape. I had to do paint touch ups as well on this fig to get it right too."

What a thing of beauty. Wow. Here is a link you can go and add this one to your collection.

Mr. Jedi 1977 shows us a new batch of vintage carded customs...

Panther gives us a new Rancor Dio Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, June 27 2016
"Just had a very busy weekend, apologizes for the lateness off this post. Before the weekend started, I managed to finish the trap door off, stick it in place and scrape off the remaining excess sand from this dio. Later this week and over next weekend, I will be making the skeletal remains which will litter the floor of this dio, giving this scene the final finishing touches.

In the mean time, here are some shots of how it is now, recreating some of the shots from the film."

It looks great to me!
