HAN SOLO SMUGGLER. SCOUNDREL. HERO. A NEW STAR WARS STORY BEGINS!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, February 21 2017
"Cameras are rolling on the adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyones favorite Wookiee; principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20 at Pinewood Studios, London.

The movie will explore the duos adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca."

Hasbro sends their Toy Fair Star Wars 2017 Preview...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, February 21 2017
Heavily dominated by the six inch vintage line up these are sure to please. One thing to be aware of:

"Please note, the Star Wars Black Series 40th Anniversary R5-D4 figure is not an Entertainment Earth exclusive, it is a Game Stop exclusive."

Now you know! And can plan to get all these great Vintage Six Inch Figures. Feel free to share the images in all their high resolution glory!

Ron Hembling finishes his Thunderbirds Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, February 20 2017
"Hi All,

Here are the usual pics and recipe.

Recipe

TB4 and Figure - TB4 is from the TB2 toy and was repainted using Vallejo paints and the figure is a 1/144 Gundam figure and was also painted using Vallejo paints.

Base - is two plastic bases from the Bnadai SW kits and I used balsa wood the sides, I then made the rocks using aluminium foil and then covered over using spakfilla.

The ruins were made using left over high density foam and I used a pencil to make the stones for the ruins floor. The small clumps of seaweed are from a company called miniNatur and the longer seaweed are from J's work and are laser printed paper and the sand was made using spakfilla and fine sand.

Ron"

Pretty cool Ron!

Dan "The Spectre" Kosa shares great Toy Fair Photos...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, February 19 2017
I have to get into the PR Files this morning to see what new images they gave us for Toy Fair, but thanks to Dan we get to see the presentation gallery from yesterday. Thanks Dan!



Going through the PR Images...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, February 19 2017
I can see there are over ten pages worth of new images to peruse and I am seeing some fantastic Marvel Stuff. I can so see folks grabbing many of these to customize.

I am not seeing any new Star Wars other than what they have shared the last few weeks, but I will stay on the prowl. There are lots of new Transformers images too.



Fiala Fernbrugg is back with an update...

"HALO CLONETROOPER

Inspired by the great concept art mady by jubjubjedi on deviantart: Deviant Art Link

HALO:
High-altitude military parachuting (or military free fall (MFF)) is a method of delivering military personnel, military equipment, and other military supplies from a transport aircraft at a high altitude via free-fall parachute insertion. Two techniques are used: HALO (high altitude low opening) and HAHO (high altitude high opening).

In the HALO technique, the parachutist opens his parachute at a low altitude after free-falling for a period of time, while in the HAHO technique, the parachutist opens his parachute at a high altitude just a few seconds after jumping from the aircraft."

Now that is a cool figure!
