Ron Hembling has already started a new six inch Star Wars Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 23 2014
"Well I decided to start this dio before I head into surgery on Wednesday so the hard part is done as i won't be able to move around to much for the first few days (don't worry just getting my ankle done again 6th time lucky. Anyway the vaporator is 85% complete I just need to add a few more little pieces, the main body is done from plumbers materials and the bits and pieces on it so far are parts from 1/35 and 1/72 scale tanks, hasbro part and plasti card." Great project Ron and we wish you luck on your surgery!



HALCION updates us on his six inch scale Snowspeeder...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 23 2014
He says the end is almost near and I can believe it after looking at his latest images. Wow, what I wouldn't give for Hasbro to create something like this in the same scale as Brandon's.



Iron Panda shows us his modeling madness...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 23 2014
This is his creation of the Finemolds 1:72 Scale Millennium Falcon "ESB" Version. Needless to say, are really enjoying the work Iron Panda is showing us. Stay tuned, I have at least one more IP update today!



We welcome ThisIsRed5 is ISY!
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 23 2014
"Hey gang... This is my first post. A few months ago someone showed me the Star Wars black series 6" figures. I hadn't bought a toy since I was a kid, but I knew I needed a few. I took to customizing quickly and someone pointed me to your incredible community. So without rambling on..here are my first attempts at a few characters. I appreciate criticism and tips..thanks." Well I don't know that I can criticize anything about that Mando! Welcome to Imperial Shipyards! And thank you for your kind comments about our little abode.



Its a new episode of the Realm Recap...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 23 2014
This week it is another episode of exploring the new collectibles coming our way. Jayson and FlyGuy give us the news we want all in one place!



Darth Daddy is back with a REBELS Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, November 23 2014
"My first Rebels custom action figure." Chopper looks good with the extra appendages.



Darth Streams shows us an awesome Sith Lord for our BDay Challenge!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"The Emperor's Wrath is born! Lord Scourge after betraying Revan, Meetra, and t3-m4 during the coup attempt on the emperor." How can you not like this one folks! Don't forget we are just days away from finishing this one up. Don't forget your custom figure needs to come with a small dio, small vehicle, or deluxe accessory to enter. You can read the full details here.



We welcome the Iron Panda to ISY!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"Ironpanda proudly presents: Hasbro 6 inch Black Series Sandtrooper, I found the headsculpt in the parts bin. The joints and the creases are modified and an overall paint job was given." Wow, wow, wow! Folks please join me in welcoming just an awesome customizer to ISY. If this is his first post can you imagine his updates!



HALCION updates us on his six inch scale Snowspeeder...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"Back Side is almost done and will begin the underbelly and airbrush apps as soon as the main cannons are done." I just can't fathom how he creates the detail he does in the time he is posting this. He must never sleep!



Bronxstalker checks back in with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, November 22 2014
"And...here....we....go......Darth Sion (from Knights of the Old Republic):

I had a lot of fun creating him, because I never did something like this....creating scars with blood showing underneath.

Recipe:
*GI Dreadnought figure
*Some soft goods
*Aves apoxie for shoulder pad, boot straps, plates on skirt, and all over body and head to create scars
*Shoulder piece is attached via mini magnet, so I can remove it and put it back on pretty easily. I did it so that he had full mobility of the arm.
*Primed black with multiple layers of dry painting to get a dead skin look (and various red paints for blood)
*Used costume jewelry from Michaels for the bolts
* I didn't have any spare ligthsabers, so I made one from styrene tubes."

I think his description speaks for itself. Looks awesome!



Its a preview of a new chapter of Tales From The Clone Wars!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"Preview for the next issue, Descent Part Three!" I plan on savoring this on a break at work today. Trust me folks if you haven't read his great graphic fiction yet you are in for a treat!



Ron Hembling finishes his 6" Scale Probe Droid...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"When I saw HALCION's Probe Droid I knew that I had to give one a go and again thanks for the inspiration mate. The MK-V's were made 20yrs ago but are still used in harsher climate planets such as Tatooine as they are very tough and could adapt very quicly to almost any environment. Probe Droid MK-V - is a mixer of an old webcam, tooth pick lid, revoltech joints, plasti card tube, plasti card strips, 1/6 scale parts,1/35 scale parts and 1/72 scale parts, Hasbro parts and Star Trek model parts." What can I say other than I wish this was mass produced.



Candy Blues continues his Darth Plageuis six inch build...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, November 21 2014
"Well the lower legs are closer than ever to being finished. Just need to sculpt the cloth details on the back and ill start working my way up the body." The details are just so impressive on this.
