Is Ron Hembling awesome or what! -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, May 24 2013 The image you see above is not a movie still from Raiders of the Lost Ark, but a diorama created by Hemble (Ron Hembling). I just don't know he does it, but then again when he gives us new images he always gives us a basic tutorial and what products he has used in his creation. Talk about a great ambassador for our hobby. Ron has been doing things like this for years and sharing it with us all. Thanks Ron!
CloneTroopr makes me miss my Republic Commando Game... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, May 24 2013
Take a look at the sniper rifle he made for Sev and tell me you don't want a new version of this. Hands down for me, RC was the and still is the best first person shooter I have ever seen. EA if you are listening, get us a new version of this. Till then click on through and enjoy the great new work from CloneTroopr.

From Mr. 77, " Hi everyone just a quick update today ...

Lucasclones shows us the RC Finale! -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, May 24 2013
We have all been enjoying his realistic versions of the Republic Commandos he has been working on. I think they turned out fantastic as you can see by the image above. Trust me, this little click will be one that will put a smile on your face. Ah, if only they could make a set of AT-AT Driver with articulation and paint work like that. It sure doesn't hurt that he knows how to take a picture too.

Well now he has given us word that he is going to focus exclusively on his Alien Work we have all been enjoying. Click this link to learn more and be sure to be live; May 25th at 3PM Eastern Time.

Tankster shows us a Desolation Light Mech... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, May 23 2013
"Light-Mechs are common around industries towns and cities used primarily for heavy labor and lifting (like a Forklift) sometimes they are outfitted with weaponry to defend or attack. As shown here Darkhorse is piloting a Light-Mech that just happens to have a Rail Gun and arm blade attachment gun can be removed if nessasary." Needless to say I find all of this absolutely fantastic and think it is one of those you must view full size (hit the aforementioned link) to appreciate. The devil is in the details they say and Daniel just handles them precisely.
JLW515 shows some great JOE Customs... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, May 23 2013
I really enjoyed seeing his custom work go with his custom graphics. Like Lady Jaye above, he is really making great strides with some Leia Faces as applied to JOE Figures. I would probably have never guessed some of his awesome recipes. Click on through to see them all.
I just can't get enough of these Jumbos! -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, May 22 2013
When I saw the cardback from the Jumbo Gamorrean Guard that had all the great Vintage TESB Characters I knew it was gonna be one great year for my GG Kenner 12 inch Jumbo Obsession. The latest one up for pre-order is the Zuckuss 12 incher from The Empire Strikes Back. I can't wait to get them all side by side on display. I am even thinking of building a display specifically for these I like em so much. What is great is that you can remove em from the package without damaging the bubble or cardback and then return them without noticing a thing.
