-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 26 2016

Hear the answers for our Hasbro SDCC Q and A Session!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 26 2016

I just received this myself so we can listen to this and react to it at the same time! First off, hats off to Todd for taking a bit of his SDCC Time to once again field our questions to Hasbro. He always does a great job and we so appreciate his effort!

Two, thank you to Steve Evans and the entire Hasbro Star Wars Brand Team for taking some of their busy time too right after the Hasbro SW Presentation to answer our questions to the limits they are allowed. I can't imagine how interesting it is to run that fine line of what they are able to share.

Three, we only had so many minutes folks and all of our questions didn't get answered so stay tuned as I try to get the rest of the list answered. Feel free to download here on your favorite device!

Star-Fall Webcomic Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 26 2016
"We're kicking off night 4 of the Star-Fall SDCC custom action figure tribute in the Dreamer's Burden medical bay. All long-flight Star-Cavalry starships have a medical bay where crewers can go for treatment for anything from stasis sickness to mortal wounds sustained in combat.

Since losing her right arm and leg in the line of duty, Nef makes regular visits to the medical bay for prosthesis maintenance and physical therapy to ensure she continues to make a full recovery. Because she's there so often, she's become friendly with the staff--especially Combat Doctor Myejka Kitfrost, a young battlefield medical officer and head of the combat trauma team. It was Myejka that helped Nef adjust to her first combat model prostheses when she returned to active duty status. From there the two became fast friends."

It is great seeing this SDCC Customizing Tribute!

Custom Jedi is back!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 26 2016
"After a bit of a life detour, I've been trying to ease back into customizing with a few repaints.

That's inspired me to start my first real project in more than a year, I think...

Leia in Endor dress.

She'll be scaled to the proper height, have added articulation and soft goods skirt."

It is great to see him back.

Stefan with yet another new dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 26 2016
He seems like he is good for at least one new Star Wars Dio per day. Talk about having some great fun!

This made me go wow yesterday...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 26 2016
I found this from Brandon Flores yesterday while perusing FB. Talk about astounding!

Todd get us Hasbro Booth Images...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 25 2016
Wow, some of those new six inch figures are looking fantastic. Qui Gon, Hera, Lando, Royal Guard, and that Tusken Raider are off the charts cool!

Starchasers gets his Gunner In for the for the latest customizing challenge!
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 25 2016
"Cref Pteska - from Corulag recruited to the Armored Calvary attached to the special forces Lightning Battalion. Cref was part of the infamous Vestar campaign, during which most of his unit was destroyed. Cref's marksmanship with the heavier weapons of the Armored Cavalry was well-known and earned him the moniker "Flare" ("because," his fellow soldiers said, "he lights 'em up."). Due to his reputation, his senior officers re-designated him as Heavy Armor and made him a door gunner on an AT-AT, attaching him to a newly formed unit made up of the surviving members of previous units called, appropriately, "The Misfits." Because he was previously associated with the Lightning Battalion, Cref was allowed to paint his armor a non-standard blue and he sports the lightning bolts on his helmet shield.

Helmet = Saga Collection AT-AT Driver
Body = Saga Legends Snowtrooper
Back armor = Saga Collection Snowtrooper (torso cracked opened and dremmeled out to fit)
Gun = the pack in from the TFA figures

I turned the AT-AT Driver's chest piece sideways, added a side column for symmetry and then cut off, re-oriented and re-attached the hoses. Then I used black coated wire to form the hoses that run between the back of the helmet and the "ear pieces" of the helmet."

He looks great to me. Look for us to feature the rest of the entries each day this week and then we will start the poll for you to pick your favorite!

Star-Fall Webcomic Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 25 2016
"Welcome to part 3 of the Star-Fall SDCC custom action figure tribute. Tonight we're introducing another male Star-Cavalry officer to the crew to round out our cast of characters. The Star-Cavalry ranks are comprised of 1000s of different species from 100s of star systems all working together to help safeguard the Altarus Starcluster.

T'ennick Taa Dvaan is a Gemling junior officer serving in the astronavigation corps aboard Nef's ship Dreamer's Burden. T'ennick was born to a military family on the smallest Gemling moon, Gemaan'Taa."

I am liking this SDCC Spread!

Star Alien 70 shows us a new custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 25 2016
"Here’s another one for the Cantina. Reegesk the ranat.

This is a TAC Elis Helrot figure, slightly repainted, with the head from a ‘Schleich’ deer figure, slightly remodelled and repainted. The robe is from the Episode I Naboo accessory set.

Not sure whether to put a tail on it, I don’t want it to get in the way when it’s seated."

I agree you want him to be able to sit!

Darth Daddy is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 25 2016
"We've fallen behind on documenting our blog posts lately.

Here are two new ones:

created by Elias

work in progress by Darth Daddy

I only did a quick simple paint job on the head to finish him in time for our podcast. To wrap this figure up, I only need to finish painting the head tattoos, darken his skintone, and do some touch ups here and there throughout. I may also make a few adjustments to the headsculpt still."

They look good to me.
