Sideshow announces Sixth Scale AT-AT Driver!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 2 2015
I logged into Facebook and saw my pal Dayton had posted this above image on my page and needless to say I think I hollered so loud they could hear me on the West Coast. He saw it posted by our good friend Jayson at Yakface.com and perhaps we can figure out a joint review when this one comes in. Needless to say I am pretty excited for more images as well as the pre-order information. Look for us to shout that from the heavens when they do start taking orders. Till then check out the preview materials directly from Sideshow. What a great day!



The Fans Choice Poll is live at Star Wars.com!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 2 2015
"Which icon of a galaxy far, far away will be the next to join Hasbro’s critically-acclaimed, highly-detailed, and all-around awesome Star Wars: The Black Series line of 6-inch figures? It’s up to you — starting now!

The winner will be announced at Hasbro’s San Diego Comic-Con Star Wars panel on July 10. Until then, exercise your galactic right and vote!"

It was nice to see at least a couple from our list make it! Right now it seems Darth Revan is in the lead. I hope this sends a message to Disney about the love folks have for the EU (what they are now calling Legendary Canon). Folks please make sure you vote and spread the word!

Hasbro Toy Shop offers free shipping through the 4th of July

Enjoy the holiday folks!



Star Alien 70 shows us the Ultimate Pilot Luke!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 2 2015
"Here is a pic showing the Luke (Echo Base Flight Gear) custom I did, with the alternate pilot parts made to interchange with it. I've narrowed the pegs on the knee, elbow and waist joints so they can be easily swapped. I would make all the individual figures for these, but I would need to sacrifice a few more Rebel Ground Crew figures to achieve that, and I quite like the idea of this being a kind of 'ultimate Luke pilot set'. (I should have put the 'Heir To The Empire' helmet in there too.)"

To say I think this is fantastic is an understatement, talk about the ultimate pilot Luke. Also to be mentioned is a continuation of the great update he did on the head sculpt of the latest Mara Jade which is now complete with a hood and googles.



JDeck finishes his Kashyyyk Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 2 2015
"Well its pretty much complete. I added some water/mud as well as some wookiees and stormtroopers. The setting of the dio is Kashyyyk 10BBY. The Empire has gained a foothole on the planet Kashyyyk, and has been using the wookiees for slave labor. A group of freedom fighter Wookiees rose up against the tyrants. Expert guerrilla fighters the wookiees ambush their enemies at the most vulnerable positions."

It looks like a movie still to me. He has to be very happy with the results. I would be!



I-am-Boba-Fett gives us an EU Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 2 2015
"I made this custom figure last year but pics of it never got posted anywhere til today. Here is a custom alien bird Jedi. I made up the name of his alien species. Here is an ARCUTRAYX JEDI MASTER. A fully poseable figure including poseable head. He features a custom lightsaber and an exclusive resin cast one solid piece hooded head that I came up with. Resin cast copies of this hooded head are available from me directly if anyone is interested in purchasing. Also this custom figure and many more are currently for sale over at eBay if anyone would like to purchase any of them."

Talk about some awesome sculpt work on this one. I can also imagine that getting this to stay upright would have been interesting too!



Ajunta Pall is back with a TCW Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 2 2015
"Thanks guys I appreciate the comments. My next few are touchups on some mandos I'd been working on: BO KATAN & PRE VIZSLA."

I thought it was pretty cool seeing as how Bo Katan went to Hasbro for the Fans Choice Poll for ISY. I really do love seeing her completed in a realistic style. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the TV Series, but I do have to admit when I see an action figure I hands down prefer super-articulated, realistic stylized characters over any others.

Big Padawan Customs is back!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 30 2015
"Time for a couple new kitbashes. The first is an Old Republic Jedi Sentinel...Really enjoyed putting her together and the final product. The second is a background Advozse mercenary that took all of an hour to put together. Easy peezy but this guy has character."

It just goes to show you folks that you don't have to go crazy with sculpting and paint to get some really great looking new action figures. Sometimes simple works the best!



JDeck continues his Kashyyyk Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 30 2015
"I continued work on my Kashyyyk trooper dio. It looks better with some jungle plants thrown on. I made them with preserved fern leaves. I bunched them together twisted it and glued it down. I think it looks better than the expensive plastic aquarium stuff. I did the same on my AT-ST Assault dio but in a smaller scale. I have a few more types of plants coming in soon to give a greater biodiversity. In the next couple days I'm adding some mud puddles with WS Realistic water."

It sure looks like he is getting there to me. The realism he is bringing to his dioramas is nothing short of amazing.
