Well I can sure see why. It looks fantastic!

Mandalore 25 finishes his 195th Custom!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, June 30 2016
"Worked all night to finish this one, here is my finished 195th figure! Put a clear coat over the spray paint, and detailed it with two shades of brown. 13 hours in to this figure, a lot of sculpting, but always worth it to see the finished product. I primarily based it off of the Kotor version I pictured with the WIPs, but I gave it a touch of the The Old Republic version (the spikes on the back are more similar to that version), and added my own twist. My personal twist comes from the lack of eyes, for playing Kotor at the age of 11, I could clearly see frame in the game clearly has no eyes (apparently they are in the texture that goes over the frame?), so I just assumed they didn't. Even then I had already read of many blind Jedi that could "see" through the force better than those using their eyes, and it makes perfect sense to me when they are known as jedi killers. If they saw through the force, a jedi would be like a beacon. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer mine over the TOR version all fleshy looking, nothing like the feral jedi eaters they are.

If anyone is interested, it's listed here."

What a great accomplishment and a great custom figure if you are interested!

Mandalore 25 is back with a work in progress...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, June 29 2016
"Been working on a Terentatek for my 195th figure, here's the work so far, shaved him down, sculpt him up, and put a base coat on."

Wow, that is spot on with his reference image. I like it! And congrats on a 195th custom!

The Closet Jedi shows us his Tantive IV Hallway...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, June 29 2016
"So here is my Tantive IV Hallway with door.

Its been printed at shape ways and I love it. Still a work in progress most of the detail painting has to be done. This section will be printed in three Parts. Left side with floor. Right side wall that fits perfectly against it and the Arch way and door wall in one piece. The left and right walls will be available in many different combinations or any way you want it. I have printed enough of these to be sure that each piece will print out beautifully each time.

Right Now I am trying to complete the whole Tantive IV corridor for myself. I would like to have a two foot section with a angled hallway and side hallway entrance for Princess Leia's transfer of the plans to r2D2. I am sure most of you have seen that incredible diorama on youtube where some one built a long corridor out of paper."

It looks great to me!

I-am-Boba-Fett is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 28 2016
"Here's a custom Resin Cast RANAT Figure that was recently made by me. Every piece of this custom figure is resin cast and it has poseable arms.

This custom figure stands 2 3/8" tall and it is in scale with all 3.75" action figures. A small strong magnet is embedded into his right hand and also into the resin cast Tusken Battle Talisman that he plans on trading to a Jawa in Mos Eisley."

Pretty cool if you ask me!

Blizzard Force making real a lost German Vintage Kenner Line!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, June 28 2016
"Well...there were several vintage lines worldwide. The UK had Palitoy, France Meccano, Mexico Lili Ledy etc... In Germany the distributor was Parker, years ago pics surfaced of this flyer with mockups:

...note the Stormtrooper on the far right with a German logo. ;) However, this concept seems to never have been realized....well, until now, that is. ;) I've designed a new front and reverse side (full German text) for the first 12... I'm currently trying out materials because I'm using satin photo paper (instead of glossy) for the first time..."

Once again this is so great. I can't wait to see what he gives us as the final entry on this one. So awesome to see vintage like this.
