I have some stuff on order myself! I can always trust EE to do a great job with my packages and their customer service is second to none!

HALCION sends me new images...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
Even more new images of his latest build including the Patrol Craft, Death Troopers, playset, etc. It is hard to not get my hopes up Hasbro will produce something like this!

Ron Hembling finishes his Shuttle Drop Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
"Hi All,

Here are the usual outdoor pics.


Well I sure would call this one for the record books. There isn't one angle that this doesn't rock in! Make sure you scroll down once you click in to see all of his final image postings. Nice work Ron!

JDeck weathers his new Revell Shuttle...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
"I continued weathering the Shuttle today. I used several alternating washes of white and black along with dry brushing applied with cotton swabs, to get the streaking effect. I also used a little bit of pastel chalks. Now I just need to mount it all, and paint the wood base. That'll do it."

Looks like he is getting close to finishing this one off!

Panther applies the first coat of paint...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
"The first coat of pint has been applied, it's been that long since I have used spray paints (also using it outside on a windy day was probably not the best idea I have had!!) so I now need to purchase another can of paint but that won't be until Saturday! >:(

Oh well, its near an Asda\Walmart and I might have to also have to buy Rogue One figures! Oh shucks!"

LOL! I can feel his pain can't you!

Custom Creator shows us his latest progress...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
"Cheap update here, but finished the first color on the bottom level. Still haven't decided what to do up top. I wanted it to be like a business on the bottom floor (or small manufacturing facility) and a living space above. There isn't much room up top to "sell" that, but I am thinking I might just go with wallpaper and residential stuff....not sure yet. Anyway:

Bottom color is a custom mix. Sadly, I only painted the main wall one night, so I had to re-mix and match the color for the side wall. It was a tad brighter, but with the floor installed, it brings down the color to match the main wall, something I anticipated and am happy with. Still need to weather everything a bit, but now I can start adding my greeblies and bits."

His dioramas just look real folks!

The Closet Jedi shows us some of his prints....
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
We see his awesome designs and today he is back to our Facebook Page with some of his design prints. They sure do look great to me!

Stefan is back with a REBELS Dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
I just finished watching this REBELS Episode myself and he already has created a dio off of it!

Star Wars Transformation Disney Style!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, September 29 2016
"With Halloween fast-approaching, Disney Style set out to recreate some of the most recognizable looks from the Star Wars franchise by turning one girl into 4 characters in under 60 seconds.

One of the most dazzling elements of the Star Wars universe is the iconic costumery and fashion of its characters. Who can forget Darth Vader’s all-black outfit, or Princess Leia’s chic double hair buns that have perpetuated pop culture for more than three decades?

From Rey’s stylish yet functional sand-colored desert uniform and up-do, to a feminine take on a Stormtrooper donned in white armor, there is a look for every Star Wars fan."

Pretty cool if you ask me!

I-am-Boba-Fett is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 28 2016
"Posted above is a brand new youtube video featuring another custom RAKATA WARRIOR action figure made by me recently. That custom Rakata Warrior is in the 4"scale to fit in nicely with other Star Wars action figures. The video also features a music sample of a new song in the works by my band, Loud Lava. Hoping to have the song completed in the near future time permitting."

Well now this is all great, from the custom action figure to the video! Here is a link to his custom action figures thread where you can see individual pictures of this great new Rakata Warrior.

Mandalore 25 is back with a custom and an offer!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 28 2016
"Made Kreia from Knights of the Old Republic II for a customer, but if anyone would like one, feel free to contact me anytime. Anyway, the base for this one is a Barriss Offee, with a sculpt torso, and hairstyle on a slave Leia head (if anyone is looking to do this, you'll need to shorten the neck). Exchanged the dark softgoods for tan, and trimmed up the robe quite a bit. I know the robe still looks big, but fixing the shoulder length would be tedious, and leave a seam down the back, so I opted to leave well enough alone. Not too fond of the face, I forgot to age it until I took the pictures, and thought the lips and eyes turned out really well, so I didn't want to risk botching them."

I thought that was pretty nice of him to offer to make the Shipyarders one!

I am really enjoying Legion078's Mini-Dios...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 28 2016
"I already made 3 Hoth based dioramas on differently sized picture frames. They are not only great for displaying your favorite figures, but also to honor Hasbro's best figures of the modern series!

There are basically endless combinations of what and how much you display on these dios!

Some day I will build a huge diorama to display the battle of Hoth with the AT-AT, AT-ST and a nice trench for the rebels' defence...so these small dioramas are like a test/study before I go BIG!"

I like the sound of going bigger!

Darth Streams showing carded magic again...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 28 2016
"Made this last night, piece of poster board, 6 pieces of photo paper, laminated, two got a little off center but looks good enough."

Wow, what a great way to show off your loose vintage action figures!

HALCION is creating a playset...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 28 2016
To go with his other awesome Rogue One Creations we have been showing you lately! Daggone, but he is knocking the ball out of the park with his work.

The Closet Jedi is back with new designs...

William shares a great dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 28 2016
What a cool construction eh? I found this first thing this morning on our Facebook Page.
