I was kind of hoping that we'd settled on Aliens. Even though the new challenge hasn't technical begun, I started making some custom heads from sculpy last night. I'm going to try casting them into plastic and make a few aliens.
I think we did settle on Aliens for Month 11 (March) and Imperial Troops for Month 12 (April).
I think Phruby and Ennis are talking about the next "Group Project" FFURG v. JD (like the Clone Wars that is going on now...
AS far as casting goes I wish I could, but i hav neither the talent or the facilities. I'd love to be able to cast stuff like he has. I waould save a small fortune in JLU parts alone. If Glassman could make a how to thread Id be more than willing to give it a thorough read. Id love to know how the magic works.
OK guys, would you believe a tree Just fell on our house? I was typing and heard rumbleing...My wife came running and i knew immediatly a tree fel.l It scraped the side of our house. D@MN!!!! Now i gotta replace siding. Lots of it.
And now i gotta remove 2 trees.... One fell during a snow storm last week, but just in the yard.
The other idea is one a friend and I were throwing around at a customizing party.
2. Pimp My Gonk
With the new Gonks, it would be fun to see what different types of Gonks we could come up with. (plus I love the droid )
That is very true... I wonder what he ends up doing with Mas Amedda after ROTS? I think that he could be a lifetime advisor to Palpatine. Amedda is one character that really seems to be overlooked as a possible important character in what transpires. He could have at the time of Valorum's fall from grace changed things to keep Palpatine out of power perhaps, but saw the momentum and possiblity for greater power with Palpatine.
and BTW, if you are not familiar with a Rolling Thunder, that rear gangplank was carved by hand.
Well, most imoprtantly, i save $ in fodder. How many figures have you cut up only to get the hands or head or left foot? I used to have sooo many left over parts. Unless you're chewie, i dont think most of us will ever use all the fodder pieces we pile up.
By casting the pieces i need, i dont have to buy a figure just to get a limb or glove...etc.
Now when i buy figures i dont buy 2 or 3 for customs i may make later. Now if i need a part, i just go to my cabinet, select a figure, boil and pop, cast and go!
Smartypants, you're so right. I've gotten so many casted parts i've made from the bottles of plastic i have...Still using the same ones for 3 years. Buying 10 figures for fodder would cover the price of the plastic and i've casted over 30 complete figures easily, not to mention all the heads, body parts, guns, helmets, weapons...etc that i've casted.
