Ron Hembling finishes his 6" Spacetrooper Diorama... -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, May 6 2015
The Imperial Spacetrooper is from Bandai 1/12 kit. The trooper was built straight out of the box and I will be keeping the articulation as there is little to no joint sections like Hasbro's troopers.
The air tank has been built using a part from a 3-3/4" Imperial Evo Trooper, piece of plasti card tube, 1/72 scale tank wheels, two top of Hasbro SW missles, some 1/20 scale plastic nuts, two parts from the 6" BS speeder bike and some plastic tubes from the bits box.
The base is from the Bandai Stormtrooper and I have built up around it using plasti card as it will have a 9 volt battery underneath as it will have to lights in it. The lights run up thru the plasti tube and I have used a 1/35 scale tank wheel on the taller tube and the two tubes have clear domes that I gotten from two Star Trek kits.
He's complete, I painted the base and air tank using Vallejo paints and painted the black areas of the troopers uniform matt black. I used the decals from the Bandai kit to use on the filters and painted the mouth section and also the detonators grey section."
I had to include the full description. I always appreciate how he includes the full step by step instruction guide with each new project. Thanks Ron!
JTA blows the dust off their crystal ball... -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, May 6 2015
Now you have to take rumors as rumors until the Big H officially shares new product information, but I have found Jeditemplearchives' information regarding new product coming down the pike to be almost 100% accurate in the many years I have been doing this. We would like to thank them for always shaking that magic eight ball and getting us the skippy on our beloved action figure line. As always some of this will cause happiness and some not so much.
Derryl DePriest sheds some light on Hasbro's Focus... -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, May 6 2015
I was put onto this great interview that The JOE Report did with Mr. DePriest, Hasbro's VP of Global Brand Management by our friends at Jeditemplearchives.com. I know the major talk was about the 12" JOE Line, but you can really see how much of this viewpoint applies to our beloved SW Lines. I have always found Derryl to be a straight shooter and very honest. This interview shows that as well as how Hasbro Execs view their product lines. We would be remiss if we didn't that JOE Report for the kind use of their interview as well.
