1 - I'm working from home so the desk is a hobby & work shared space. (I also have a large workbench out in the garage, it's mostly for home improvement or auto repair kind of projects, but it is where my airbrush booth is located.)"
Clint shares more of his Joust build... -- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 26 2021
"First up, from arcademodup, came the lit marquee kit which went in without a hitch. Next, another of the escape pod kits graphics, the screen bezel sticker was applied. I put this one on in several pieces as the one piece application killed me when I did it from the Tempest kit."
Folks he is really doing a bang up job with this.

Darth More shares a video of how to keep the vintage line rolling... -- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, January 24 2021
"Spector Creative made a video of what Kenner had planned to continue the original Vintage line. I think he did some outstanding research and found some rather interesting material, most of which I hadn't known before.
To me the "dark times" began when Disney bought Lucasfilm and made the Sequels, but I figure these are the second dark times after the endless seeming gap between 1985 and 1995."
Wouldn't it be cool to see this happen!

"Just setting up the new office, found these cabinets on Ebay which are perfect for big Vehicles, bet you could make a good death star diorama out of these 8) ..here's a few shots, nothings finished yet, still adding figures etc."
Those shelves are fantastic!
Clonehead lights up a new Arcade 1Up Box... -- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, January 23 2021
"After final assembly, Iím satisfied with how bright the graphic is lit. I am glad I used the foil. I used electrical tape to attach the foil and overlapped the edges to block light bleed.
This should be pretty sharp when the decorated cabinet is sitting g on top of it."
Wait till you see everything he did to get it to this level of perfect! Clint is one ingenious fellow!

Don adds to his Shelf Diorama... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, January 22 2021
"I had some scraps and bits of leftover insulation foam stacked near the back of the shelf and had an interesting thought. So I knocked together this little stairway-landing. It needs some sanding and painting still. It fits neatly between "structural" beams and like the mini-dio walls it'll be modular!"
This is really looking nice.
Clonehead getting ready to Arcade Up Customize... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, January 22 2021
"I went ahead and bought another big graphics package from Escapepod to redecorate my Rampage cab to be a Joust themed cabinet. I had also purchased a lighted marquee kit from another vendor. The first kit has a translit graphic for the marquee included. To be mounted onto a clear sheet or pane of glass and then, lit from behind."
He is just getting started. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
RCW Creations starts a new Dio... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, January 21 2021
"To start this years new builds I'm creating four Star Wars displays, like the ones I built last year. These pieces will be themed around Nevarro, they can be individually displayed or placed alongside each other to make a street scene.
The measurements are 12" ◊ 9" x 6", it's made entirely out of foam board, for each piece I have glued two pieces of 10 mm and 6 mm on the wall using PVA glue. When it's dried, I'll cut off the excess and sand it down before cutting out doorways and adding facial features."
I really like these modular add to dioramas he builds!
JDeck continues his Bodega Dio... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, January 21 2021
"I painted the interior of the Bodega. I just used a combination of woodglue and watercolor paint. Then painted the shelves black. Then I popped up a few floor tiles, because every bodega has popped up floor tiles. Also I got enough Wacky packages to pretty much cover the shelves. Theres about 50 different ones. I over ordered, and have about 50 more coming lol."
This is just a fantastic addition to his Spaceport Dio.

Lenny Quinn shows us some custom Rebel Fleet Troopers... -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, January 20 2021
"Around 6 or 7 years ago I grabbed a lot of 20 Indiana Jones Russian soldiers off of ebay. I think it cost me 25 bucks or so. They were readily available at the time on the cheap. Come to find out they were rejects. The didn't stand straight or bend properly. Regardless I used them to make 10 rebel troopers, 6 ground crew and 4 officers. Dug them out this weekend upon receiving the Tantive IV."
Now those populated it up quite nice!

Blue Milk posts update... -- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, January 19 2021
"All books will start shipping in May. To expedite the shipping process once the books arrive in the U.S., we have made the decision to have the add-ons assembled by the printer at the factory. This delays their arrival to us, but gets the books to you faster by having things like bookmarks, posters, prints, etc. pre-packed with books so that we don't need to assemble them when we receive them."
Sounds like the next update will be in early February.
Saw the new Lanard "Alien" and "Predator" figures at Walmart today so they are hitting the east coast.
