Panther shows us more progress in Gotham...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, April 27 2017

Last night, I trimmed the all the walls so they all stood flush with one another. I have marked out the corner stones, which I will carve out over the next couple of days before applying a coat of paint to building before starting on the floors.

I have done my usual of sticking the sides together with masking tape to feel for the size."

It is really taking shape now!

Ron Hembling starts a ROTJ Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, April 26 2017
"Hi All,

Started a new dio/display this afternoon and this time it will be Boba with Han in carbonite from RotJ.

The base so far is made using foam board and the grills are from a plastic fly swatter which I cut out from the flat swatting piece.

I have added LED's and they will run of a 9v battery.


Wait till you see a dark shot. The lights are fantastic!

Ron Hembling shares a Planet of the Apes Diorama...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, April 26 2017
"Hi All,

Finished off a PotA 2 in 1 dio yesterday.


Apes - are from NECA and are 7" scale, I got them into the poses I liked and then glued the joints and puttied them up as well as doing the fur on the heads so that it looked more natural.The figures were painted and weathered using Vallejo paints and pastel chalks.

Bases - are made from the Bandai kits and I used balsa wood for the sides. I used a mix of 40% spakilla and 60% dirt and added it to the base and left it to dry over night.

Once dry I drilled holes into the base where the grass was going to be glued. The grass is real grass and I dipped them into some Methylated Spirits and let it dry out for a few hours, once the grass was all dry I then painted them using Vallejo's Medium Olive and the small grass tufts are from a company called miniNatur.


I do enjoy seeing Ron's new builds!

Phantro makes a cool crossover!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, April 26 2017
"Hello! It has been a long while since I tackled a Star Wars custom action figure. Most my customs are crossovers so and in celebration of the upcoming Alien: Covenant film I decided to make a Xenomorph to add to the ranks of the Sith. Thanks for watching."

Now this looks pretty awesome. I don't think I have ever seen an ALIEN used as fodder for a Sith Lord.

Jamie Young shares his progress...

It looks like he is well along his Foam Slave I with Docking Platform Project. I still count the Slave I as among my favorite Star Wars Vehicles.

And its gone quick like!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, April 26 2017
If you are like me by the time you found out about that around 3 PM Eastern yesterday this was already sold out. From what I can tell it didn't even last 10 minutes. Still, check this link as I look for Hasbro to sell a few more of em before they take it off the Toy Shop.

I am also liking the fact that all the vintage 6 inch is selling out too as it shows Hasbro how popular the vintage carded line is. Here's to hoping they never do away with at least some form of it for a very long time.

And Hasbro, have we said yet how happy and thankful we are you are bring that back to us in the 3.75" line up in the Spring of 2018! To me that was the best news of Celebration!
