Panther finishes his Gotham PD Headquarters Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 23 2017
"The final touches added and final shots are in!"

Yepper, this one is a winner all the way around!



Art deWhill is back with some great Tarkin artwork...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 23 2017
"Well, long time no read, struggling with a lot of things, you know. But finally I am back strongly focusing on and enjoying my sci-fi art again! I also started doing fan art again, still trying to bring my modern oil painting technique and Star Wars together but also doing digital artworks, now more painterly, sometimes more graphic. This is an example of a more graphic one: TARKIN. He now was a backcover of the Official German Star Wars fanclub magazine. I have a free poster size jpg of this image for you available @ Deviantart (via Download Button on the right side of the page)"

Wow, what a treat to be able to download this full size. Very nice Steffan!



Ron Hembling starts up some sales!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 23 2017
"Hi All,

Up for sale is this 2 in 1 Tatooine display which is completely scratch built and comes with two fully articulated Bandai Sandtroopers with an extra weapon for each trooper.

Ron"

Folks this is a great chance to own some work by the legend. I can honestly say that some of his own work I have gotten is the highlight of my collection.

I just found out he is selling quite a few dios! Click here to see the full for sale section, but I will hyperlink the pic to the particular item for a few:










Ron Hembling paints some great faces...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, August 23 2017
"Hi All,

I had to do more filling today on the AT-AT head so while that is drying I decided to paint my Mirror Kirk head and then decided to start doing the rest of the Mezco heads as well. So here is Kirk's and Sulu's heads before and after painting.

I still need to paint Spock's heads but will do that later on tonight.

Ron"

Wow, you can really see what adding a great paint job does to a great figure.



Hasbro and Litzky make my daughter's weekend...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, August 22 2017
Well like I said the internet was down at the house this weekend and low and behold a Star Wars Forces of Destiny Box was on my front porch Friday evening.

My daughter spent the entire weekend playing with Sabine, Endor Leia, and Rey. I am telling you the articulation in these is really awesome for Barbie type dolls (not that I played with the dolls too much just sayin).



Facebook musings...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, August 22 2017
Well I was without internet at my house this weekend, but was still able to come across some cool things with my phone on Facebook. Here are a few:

-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, August 21 2017
"Hi All,

Restarted on Shawn's AT-AT head dio and have add a few more pieces to it before I start filling the gaps and then adding the finer details.

Ron"

Needless to say this is rocking on so many levels. It looks perfect to me.



Ron Hembling shows us a new Trek Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, August 21 2017
"Hi All,

While I'm waiting on the filler to dry on Shawn's AT-AT head dio I thought that I would show some WIP pics of a Mirror Universe Kirk I'm doing in between Shawn's build.

I used the mezco Kirk and removed the shirt and used the rubber mirror Kirk mirror universe tunic and had to alter it a little to make it fit snuggly. The sash is just some material I painted gold and attached it, the boots were done using pleather, the chairs top cushion is a piece of foam board wrapped in pleather.

Ron"

Now that is already looking awesome to me.



A look at the HASCON Rex...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 20 2017
I am gonna have to have one of these. Wow, I like the looks of this in the packaging!



The new Battlefront II looks awesome!

Had a few seconds to peruse Facebook this morning and saw this. Wow!



Panther rocking his new Gotham PD Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 20 2017
"Yesterday I had the idea to put two lights at the bottom of the steps leading into the station. These are made using polystyrene balls, with a base coat of white and then a yellow wash once dry.

Light blue tissue paper has been used and glued over the backs of the windows and another coat of black paint has been added to the rears of each wall.

Finally each peace has been glued to the base, all I have to do are the final little touches to this before declaring it finished."

Wow, it looks great. He sure looks almost done to me.



Stan is back with modern vintage customs...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 20 2017
"Although I had custom Labria almost three years ago, one I did was base off Hasbro version and was not movie accurate. So here the revise version of one in the movie. The revision called for new sculpted torso, hands use grand adimeral thrawn with modification cutting cuffs off. The gloves, legs, belt were all modified from boom vimdin. Added a wash to his jacket so it would be shiny, he been walk around mos Isley . Big thanks to Chadpeakobi-one for helping out with colors."

He sure looks fantastic to me!



Ron Hembling finishes his Star Trek Bridge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 19 2017
"Hi All,

The bridge is now complete and here are my usual out door pics, all I have to do now is make a perspex cover for it.

The floor/base is high density foam just cut to shape and then the bridge sections glued in place. The large Trek symbol I cut out from the Mezco box that the figures came in and painted the edges and glued it to the base.

Ron"

Ron really worked hard on this one and it really shows.



Gold Leader One is back with a new Action Fleet Custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 19 2017
"Here is my custom Action Fleet TIE Avenger. An Imperial Pilot is included, but I have not decided on a second figure yet.

The wings are actually different, they are from the website Shapeway, a seller was kind enough to make them for me. Vader's wings were detached, then I filed down the attachment on the body of the ship. The wings from Shapeway were spray painted black and I added in the gray details. The body of the ship was painted with the same gray. I added in some details with a darker gray, as well as some red lights in the back."

It looks pretty good to me. Daggone I miss Action Fleet.
