Customs / Dagobah Diorama
« on: July 14, 2010, 11:27:27 AM »
Hey Snowtroopers!!!  It has been a while!  Here's my most recent diorama is Dagobah.  This time, in a closet in the basement of our new (old) house...







If you have a sharp eye, you noticed that the scene in the middle of the diorama in the first couple of pictures is different.  In the past, any representation of Dagobah I did, had multiple Lukes, R2s and Yodas. 



This time I went with a turntable, so only one scene is visible at any given time:



I also sculpey-ted a couple of bog-wings, to fly over the swamp:



And here as a custom figure I customized for the dio:  Magic Tree Yoda





And yes, his upper body is still removable:



A movie illustrating how Magic Tree Yoda's upper half, gets switched up from the log into the turntable portion of the diorama is here:  http://s267.photobucket.com/albums/ii303/Droidworld/DIORAMAS/?action=view&current=MagicTreeYoda.mp4

Here are some pics of Yoda's Hut.  (Can't wait for the new Luke Bespin!)









SWEET DAGOBAH DREAMS SNOWTROOPERS!!!




I have several custom figures, avatars, cardbacks, stickers and of course, dioramas, at:  http://s267.photobucket.com/home/Droidworld/allalbums

Thanks for looking, your questions, comments or otherwise are always welcome.

Customs / Custom Animated .gifs and Avatars
« on: February 02, 2009, 01:07:36 PM »
Hey Snowtroopers!  After figuring out how to animate a .gif, I updated my avatar, and created some new ones.  If anyone is interested, you can take one of these, add your own, or suggest another...

I have read that the Target Exclusive Jabba’s Rancor with Luke Skywalker is coming to Canada.  Does anybody know which retailer will have it?  My guess is TRU, though Zellers did have some Target Exclusive figures last year...

Wampa Cave / Sarlacc Pit "Ultimate" Battle Pack
« on: December 02, 2008, 07:43:34 PM »
Has anyone seen the Sarlacc Pit "Ultimate" Battle Pack?   :sign0065:  It is AWFUL!  The Sarlacc is ok, if a bit small in scale, but the figures have the worst paint work I've seen on a Star Wars figure since 1978.  (Even the vintage figures, at least had standards!)  They make the shoddy work on the Indiana Jones figures look like Rembrandt!  Who cares if it does not come to Canada!  (I never thought I would say that!)  Even the skiff's "new" paint scheme looks like crap.  The battle damage is blobs of silver paint....

Look at these images:

http://www.galactichunter.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=103&page=1

I hope this is not the way Hasbro is going to "cut corners"  in the Star Wars figure line.  So far the main lines of figures have decent paint work, but if the figures start looking like this, I think it will turn off most adult collecters.  Paint work that looks like it was painted by a three year old, should only appeal to a three year old.

I was looking at some customs on Yakface and one customizer (Jeditaz) did a repaint of the 30th Anniversary Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) and for the first time, I believe HASBRO has nailed Mark Hamill's likeness in 3 3/4"!?!  It is hard to imagine, this pasty, horrible figure, with only they eyes and hair (poorly) painted, as being any good, but take a look.  (I've attached a face pic)

I decided to make my own new Luke Stormtrooper using the Yavin Luke's head.  A little medium fleshtone, and some hair and eyebrows and WOW!!!  (I've attached a pic of this too!)  Now I hope Hasbro darkens up the plastic on this mold and uses it again....it is great!

(Now I am not sure if the pictures have attached, so Jeditaz's customs can be seen...about half way down the page....here:

Wampa Cave / Millenium Falcon 2008!
« on: January 05, 2008, 04:25:10 AM »
So, according to the 411 at Rebelscum and the "Target"ing computers at JediDefender, there is a new re-tooled Millenium Falcon coming out this year.  It has lights, sounds, and firing missiles, it also has character sound bites and can fit 20 figures!  Its SKU is 087-06-0877 and it's priced at $149.99. 

The price seems a bit steep for a simple "re-tooling" with some added electronics.  Will it be Hasbro's answer in plastic to Attakus' amazing diorama?  Only time will tell and let the speculation begin!?!?!

I for one will only be interested if there are MAJOR changes.

« on: January 21, 2007, 07:46:16 PM »
I was just at Toys 'R' Us (BOWMAC) and on their "coming soon" board they had "Y-Wing Fighter" listed for April.  Could it be for the 3-3/4" figures!?!

The new Toys'R'Us exclusive Saga Dagobah X-Wing is showing up at stores in the States.  Anyone know of when and if the Dagobah X-Wing is coming to Canada?
