Customizing Tips and Tricks / Neck Post Conversions - Ideas/Tips
« on: October 24, 2005, 04:00 PM »
hows it done?  i checks ffurg and wasn't able to find anything and wasn't able to find anything here.  i think i have the basic idea, and i'll be trying on some fodder first to test, but before i ruin a still possibly useful head i wanted some advise before i start.  i have a dremel & a drill with bits.  here's my plans so far: replace the evil grim evo darth maul head with the saga training darth maul, use eu luke head to make a jedi luke using evo ani body, using jedi council mace head and putting it on a repainted pilot obi, and finally using a rots palpy and putting it on evo darth sidious, just can't get over the super evil grin.  so any help/suggestions greatly appreciated.

hey joke really great customs.  they'd make a good addition to anyones collection.  suggestion on the cape if you have any saga royal guards laying around if you cut them in the right spot they'd make pretty good cape they're pretty thin not too bulky looking, but once again no hood, another suggestion not sure how this would look but maybe some super glue and some sculpey add the plastic hood from that ultra/deluxe pegwarming obi/sb driod and it might turn out okay.

chewie can you post a pic of the witch i know it was somewhere in one of your threads.  i was looking at the poster you made in your customs thread and it looks really killer-pun intended-and if i'm not mistaken it's a fisto body correct?  now as you may know from other comments i've made about her it was love at first sight, she is just a super freak super freaky.  so i hope you go into her backstory somewhere down the line, like why exactly does she have jedi robes did she kill one and stole the clothes, and is it actually a she? anyway super great job like i said customs are a given that they'll be awesome coming from you and your effects and story telling get better and better every time.

palpy looks positively e-vil.  i'd give him the deluxe palpy/or #35 palpy hands for this particular shot though with the force lightning.  i've been meaning to do something like this but i was going to put some Agen robe sleeves on him, also the robes from that sucky Saga Emperor seem so much better than the ROTS robes like they're dragging on the ground or something, anyway my 3 cents looks good and the force lightning awesome effect.

okay chewie here's my 2 cents:  i love all the background stuff, i always try to notice that stuff because to my they give the photo's that much more of a feeling of reality.  for instance the pic of rykrof at the terminal with the laptop thing on the crate, or the pic of rykrof and gang walking through the base the gonk droid laying on his side like he was abandon there in a rush, and all the crate stacked all over the place, where do you get those by the way?  the story was very good definatley makes me look forward too the next chapter.  i not really big on the dooku head throws it off to me.  what's with us guys with the need to poke at the fire with a stick anyway is it like bred into us or something, another good touch gives it more realism instead of them all just sitting there.  in the pic of TK-42 and rykrof talking what is that small crane looking thing you have there in back of them?  is that a driodeka blaster at the end?  recipe?  good touch with the blood on the nightsisters mouth.  painted or effect?  either way she gets more and more scarier.  once again great addition to the story

there's a lot good ideas here, lot's of possibilties, which makes me think it won't happen.  hasbro seems dead set against them.  if it hadn't been for how awesome most of ROTS had been these new battle of wave might get me really excited.  these might have been nice pre ROTS but considering the pictures we've seen of what's coming up it would take something great like continuing the evo line or VOTC line to keep me in collecting this stuff.  i mean come on the ROTS prisoner Palpatine had articulated knees and he can't even sit unless you wiggle him out of his robe.  hasbro better have something good in the works because this repaint/limited articulation cr@p isn't flying with me.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Future Evolutions
« on: October 20, 2005, 03:20 PM »
disco your evolutions ideas have a single flaw in my opinion:  that would be the fact that i'd have to buy all of them, some multiples, and that would require me spending more money i don't have other than that it sounds really great.  which as you know is one of hasblows basic principles to come up with a great idea like the evo sets and only limit to 4 sets and making them hard to find.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Carkoon Wave

now what would be cool if the carb block had some sort of light in it to turn the melting effect on or off, or if it was a two sided block one side the way we see it and the other a melted carb block like the i believe came with the Jabba Palace Dio.  oh what the heck am i thinking that would actually require hasbro to go out of their way for something, silly me.  another thing though why is only his upper half red.  last time i watched the movie it looked like his whole body was melting at once not in stages.

a more indepth critique later, but i just finished reading it.  AWESOME.  love the shot of Ventress over her kill, the quick flashback of Maul was a good touch, and the campfire was strickingly realistic looking.  very very impressive stuff.  more later.

damn it Phruby thats the second custom you've beaten me to, i just finished my Carnor Jax and i was going to start on doing one of these to go with my sqaud of clones.  he looks really good though hopefully mine will live up to looking so good.  do you have problems with the paint chipping on those shoulder joints?

Star Wars Universe / Re: Revenge of the Sith made all EU wrong!
« on: October 11, 2005, 03:45 PM »
lots of great "point of views" here, but all in all nobody from tim zahn on had any idea what lucas had in store for the prequels they only did their best guess and effort to continue the series and i'm sure a lot of us out there appreciate their efforts even if you're not a big EU fan.  their efforts have brought about the rebirth of the Star Wars franchise who knows if tim hadn't written anything or if others hadn't followed him if there would even had been prequels, it was what over 10 years since rotj had come out till heir to the empire.  star wars had all but been forgoten about.  BUT and it's a big BUT after the prequels are now complete there are big flaws in the connections between the films and the EU.
if anybody wants to make a list please do, i'm tempted to start my own but i don't think i'd have the time. 
so here's a couple things:
the emporer doesn't look like that cause he's so filled with the dark side, that it has scewed up his face he got shot in the face with lightning, and following that why would his clones begin to look like that even if they aged faster or were flawed.

r2-d2 knows everything-do i have to say anymore.

midichlorians?  has that even been brought up in the EU?  i'm sure there's not a that big of mystery as to what they are.

clone(s)/ing-big deal made in dark force rising about them running around but it's been going on for years and according to that guy on Kamino in EP II it was there "finest yet" so it's not even like the Republic was the first to have a clone army.  i know somewhere they tried to come up with an explanation for this but to me it came off really really weak.

luke & leia have real family out there and i'm not talking adoptive or step family but blood relatives.  padme's family was at her funeral.  well they don't know who there mother was so how are they supposed to know about?  them you might say.  once again R2, and you're not telling me that obi, yoda, and especially Anakin seeing how important family was to him didn't tell luke or leia about that.  none of them could give the super twins her name?

now i know i'm ranting and raving here and it's not to put down the EU world or those who are fans of it, i myself was one until the whole Vong thing came about.  but the EU seems outdated if that's even the right term to use, now i know you can't just say okay let's start over again, but something has to change.

chewie once again total admiration of your collection.  while i was staring and drooling over it i noticed the Quarren you have that look like from the clone wars cartoon, and also you have a fig. with a red saber between a$$ kicked Ani and holo sids who is that?  and one more quick question the luke you have dueling vader in Bespin dio is that a custom or standard fig any closeup's of these figs i mentioned would be greatly appreciated.  the seats that Rykrof is sitting are those the same design as the niub numb's, spelling?, used in his DS conf room because they look really great and add just that much more detail to the shot.  is that like a sat. dish next to the shuttle i could totally see that being in a shot from the movies.  i have so many comments/questions/requests for closeups on all your stuff i could fill up this board so i better stop while i'm ahead.  great stuff can't wait for #15 to be up and ready.

The Original Trilogy / HOW MUCH DOES LUKE KNOW
« on: September 27, 2005, 06:55 PM »
Okay my very first topic, it might be a long one but please bare with me as it's a question i feel really needs to be asked and answered.  now that the final movie is over and everybody knows basically everything that leads up to EP IV what is it that luke knows about his family tree?  so when luke & obi are in the Falcon on their way to Alderaan luke never asks so what's my mom's name?  so we obviously know there is no conversing with Yoda about the whole Ani/Vader turning, but in ROTJ when spirit Obi & Luke are talking there couldn't possibly be a longer conversation there before it cuts to the rebel fleet where Obi tells Luke everything plane as day none of that point of view B.S.  Now also the coming back from the netherwold stuff this would obviosly continue into the EU realm but no continuing Luke's training from the afterlife, i know all about the i can't talk anymore bit from Tim Zahn's book, but that all seems like a great big cop out to me because Lucas didn't let anybody touch the prequel era stuff and it just seems like a chitty way around everything.  oh and i forgot the greatest one of all, r2 never gets his memory wiped so here's lil r2 running around with the biggest secrect in the star wars universe and he hasn't told anybody yet?  i guess this all kind of stems from my past love the EU.  I read all the books and with the prequels now complete it seems like just about everything i've read was a waste of time.  the EU should be completely rewritten.  anyway what's  everybody's opinion EU not really counting here but how do you think it should be?

1064
i'd buy that, it's freaking awesome.

awesome ubese bounty hunter great use of parts and paint scheme, i may have to try my hand at it.  i just finished a, i guess AU, version of bespin luke this looks really good definate improv to hasbro's.  what arms are those?  also  i have my luke with a VOTC han holster if you have a spare you should try it on him, it kind of looks like he's missing something.  and finally onto jango, off to a good start i can't wait to see what this will finally  look like i've been trying to think of a way to do this but have come up dry, this looks very very promising.
