Bronxstalker is back with a new Mando... -- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 25 2017
Here goes my latest 6" Mando Merc. I'm really digging working in this scale. It also allows me more room to use an airbrush, which I did all reds and yellows that way, to get that smooth finish (I hate hand painting yellows). Enjoy."
Darth Sinister is back with an update... -- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 25 2017
"Hi all! I've got a few progress pictures on Crimson Jack. I still need to do some touch-up paint. Removable coat is done. Jet pack is going to have to be re-worked. The mold came out wonky and it wont cast correctly. The jet pack is also unpainted as is the space helmet. The space helmet and Jack's head are original sculptures, molded and cast in Smooth-on Smooth Cast 325. Still working out some casting issues... (I hate casting), but all will be good with lots and lots of patients.
Last photo is a Mando head I'm working on. Not happy with this one. Might re-work it soon. All are 6" scale."
That Crimson Jack looks great!
Ron Hembling finishes up his Trek Helm... -- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, July 25 2017
The bit of the helm/navigation station I have to do was the targeting system which was made using plastic card. Once it was put together and let dried I used a mix of Woodland Scenics Water Effects and Green paint and filled in the viewing section to simulate the glow of the targeting screen.
Ron is definitely putting his new customizing room to good use!
Todd shares a great Hasbro SDCC Gallery... -- Posted by Tamer on Monday, July 24 2017
Well we are gearing up to share our interview with the Hasbro Brand Team, but while we get that too you enjoy this great gallery Todd snapped while interviewing with the team.
Lets just say that Dewback looks awesome and man o man the Rebel Fleet Trooper looks good too. I can't wait to see if we get some of those Hoth releases again in vintage carded form?

SDCC Gallery Day 3! -- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, July 23 2017
Greg was back at it again and got us some great images from many licensees I have never seen before as well as some new offerings from companies like Halmark and Jakks Pacific. It is a great time to be a Star wars fan!
Thanks for the great images Greg!
Hasbro sends word on availability of SDCC Exclusives... -- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, July 22 2017
I just got this in from my Hasbro Contact:
"Hope you’re having a great weekend! We wanted to reach out to clarify that the availability date for the Hasbro Star Wars SDCC exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop has changed to September."
The placeholders that were there for Thrawn, Rey/Luke, and The Speeder are now gone as well. We will let you know when we find out more!
All kinds of great new Hasbro Offerings shared... -- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, July 22 2017
Lots of great news on the 6" front with Hasbro sharing news on a Dewback with Sandtrooper and a Rebel Fleet Trooper and a great looking removable helmet Rex (he even has the hash marks).
I am also liking the news on the Rogue One tank (courtesy of our friends at SWActionNews):
More great SDCC Images... -- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, July 22 2017
Greg is back at it again to share more of all the great new items being showcased at SDCC. I must say that Mythos Obi Wan is looking awesome!
Once again thanks to Greg for getting us some great images. And stay tuned he will be back at it again today!
Ron Hembling continues his Star Trek work... -- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, July 22 2017
I finally moved into the house Tuesday gone and completed doing my model room up. I have re-started on the bridge diorama by painting the captains chair and helm/navigation section and the floor that they sit on.
I have also completed the captains chair and used plastic card for the instrument panels, I have started the helm/navigation console by adding the astrogator and the forward scanner plotter by printing them off the net and cutting and gluing them in place.
The bridge I used a black and a white wash and applied a second coat to the pillars before going over them with a black wash."
Now this is really coming together.
Looks like Poe gets a new speeder... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 21 2017
Perusing the interwebs and came across this. Pretty cool new Speeder for Poe for what I am assuming will be shown in the Last Jedi.
The original link I found is now dead so I am guessing this was mistakenly released a bit early.
