Darth Sinister wins a prize for our BDay Custom Challenge!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
His Ultimate TESB Han Solo complete with mini-freeze chamber dio and a ton of other accessories showcases what "deluxe" actually means! I love his take on our most beloved scruffy looking Nerf Herder and couldn't wait to feature it. Stay tuned folks as there are still more prizes to dole out as we get closer to our grand prize announcements.

Commander Kurgan is back with a new Trooper Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
I always enjoy seeing his new Clone Trooper Combinations. The latest off the clone line is ARC Captain Alpha-09 "Crane". I would also be remiss if I didn't let you in on a great looking Bo Katan in Mandalorian Garb. I can only wonder what might happen with good ole Volker if say Santa manages to drop a few Clones by his house too! ;)



Gentle Giant revamps their site and releases new products!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
How can you not love their new AT-AT Bookends! To go along with a fancy new site look and new site name: the3dstudio.com it is great to see their new look. There is also a premier guild exclusive AT-AT Bookend that features Luke hanging on a wire going up to drop explosives. All in all I would call that a win win for the 3D Studio and Gentle Giant!



The Iron Panda is back with a custom figure update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
"Here is another one: again, I sculpted over the joints and made new straps from Duro"Green Stuff". I repainted it using acrylics from Revell and Vallejo." All I know is he sure does have my favorite Star Wars Environment down pat as he shows with his Hoth Luke Pilot. I can't wait to see what he shows us next!



JDeck shows us a new beasty...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
"I decided to paint Boba Fett's Holiday special Panna moon beast brown instead of tan. I'll probably paint some more coats and washes. I like to use oil paint on my creatures gives the skin depth and more subtle color transitions." Boy does this bring back memories of the first time I can remember seeing Boba Fett!



Jseversole joins Imperial Shipyards...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
"Here is my diorama of the attack on Luke Skywalker and C-3PO in the Jundland wastes of Tatooine. Constructed of a cardboard base with a packing foam for the background/rocks and styrofoam for the "landscaping." A textured spray paint was used for the base along with acrylic paint. Lots of spackling, dry brushing and a spray bottle with watered down paint were used quite a bit. Figures are from a variety of post-Kenner collections; there was no Massiff in the movie but I figure it could've been "just off screen!" It's not totally movie accurate but rather movie-inspired." Now this is just a great way to start posting if you want my opinion. He has also posted a Battle of Geonosis and G.I. JOE Diorama too!



The Iron Panda is back with more Snow Speeders!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, December 18 2014
"The VC Snowspeeder is my favorite Hasbro Vehicle. I have another one to be repainted,but this time itīs going to be Lukeīs with the grey stripes. BTW: I have already done this with the Finemolds 1:48 scale Snowspeeders, hereīs Zev Senescaīs." I am telling you this is some fine detail and paint work folks.



Most Wanted Collectibles lists new GG Items...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, December 17 2014
"Gentle Giant brings you the Star Wars: Han Solo, Hero of Yavin Mini-Bust. Digitally sculpted from actual archival footage and designs, each mini-bust is rendered using the highest quality polystone and hand painted. Each pieces comes individually numbered and comes with a matching Certificate of Authenticity."

Matter of fact, they have a very extensive section for Gentle Giant Mini-Busts, many of which cannot be found anywhere let alone at their fantastic prices. I only shop for my Gentle Giant Items at Most Wanted Collectibles!



Sjefke is the latest winner in our BDay Custom Challenge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, December 17 2014
His Ultimate Bastila Shan is perhaps the most fantastic rendition of her in custom form that I have seen. The facial work alone is noteworthy, but when you couple it with the fantastic movement this figure possesses along with his mini-diorama I really think he got into the spirit of the "Ultimate" vision we were after. Take a look at his entry with the full recipe and stay tuned as there are more random prizes to award as we count down to the grand prize announcements!



Commander Kurgan is back with a new Mandalorian...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, December 17 2014
"Okay, after I wasn't really happy with my previous interpretation of Munin Skirata and having re-read his description in Karen Traviss' book, I had to relaunch him. The figure is based on the Jodo Kast figure with the Wookie braids and the belt/pouches taken off, a Jango Fett gunbelt added and my all-time favorite Joe headsculpt. Much better, much cooler, much more Mando. Kandosii!" I like this one a good bit.



Hot Toys 1/4 Scale Boba Fett is now live...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
"The name "Boba Fett" is no stranger to Star Wars fans. With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are very excited to officially reveal Boba Fett as the first release in the Hot Toys Star Wars quarter scale collectible series!" Click here to order one now!



Dobiwan is today's BDay Challenge Winner!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
His great Ahsoka with Rex incognito is just another great entry for our birthday custom challenge. I really miss Ahsoka and sure hope we get to see her somewhere else down the road in one of the new shows or movies. Till then we have folks like James who keep her character alive. Don't worry we still have more entries to showcase and award prizes as we get closer to the grand prize announcements!



The Iron Panda is back with some modeling madness...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
"Hereīs some more: My Vintage Collection Snowspeeder.I added some details,modified and repainted the pilot und repainted the whole speeder.unfortunately I couldnīt find another Dak Ralter Figure to make the gunner...thereīs even the "Bubble Wraps" on the Seat belts." I know I sure like it. The detail is amazing.
