Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Reference/ Background Picture Thread

Here at SirSteve's Guide you can click on the marine to get a really good pic of him.

And our very own JD has a helmetless pic of him over here.

Im very pleased with how this one looks, except for his rifle, that is. I think its gonna be a huge hit and Im afraid Im gonna have to patient before I order him off eBay (my main supplier of figs)

Nice... and I opened one such message at work  :-X

Wait up Sithbaker, I'm going with ya to those hotties!  ;)

Great add-on to the farmboy, BrentS. Also nice to see the wip picture. The finished version looks so much different with that paint job. Very good  8)

PS: your wookiees are awesome, but I already said that at Yakface  ;)

Ok, well, here's my two cents:

First up, Marine no.1, which actually was my first custom ever:

Second, logically, Marine no.2, this time he's got a removable helmet:

And last, a third version with an alternative chest armour, to make it more movie accurate:

Hope they're a bit of help to you  :)

I get it, you'd like to see pictures of customized Marines, right? Not the real thing, but the ones we made?

Officers? Like using insignias as the Snowtrooper next to General Veers has?

My latest add-ons are 2 Lando Calrissians (General Pilot), a Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) and a Death Star Gunner. All loose, but in very good condition.

Saw your post at Yakface as well, BrentS. This really sucks and what a mess! Then again, that which does not kill us, makes us stronger, right? Good luck with getting the project running again!

Good luck, then, and remember to keep rotating those limbs  :)

Quite easy, but stay sharp: apply a drop of superglue in the joint and slowly rotate the limb. Or, if it's a leg that won't go round 100%, just move it back and forth slowly. This will cause the glue to be smeared throughout the joint. Just don't stop too soon, or the limb will be glued shut. You'll know when you're almost done, if the glue starts to settle and dry out. Just keep moving it a bit more, just to be sure. And test it first.... on cpt. Solo. Just kidding, just use a leftover fig, if you have any.

Already commented at, but can't hurt to say here as well that your Quinlan looks very cool. The paint apps are excellent!

Great combination of parts on Vadith, D_N. That helmet looks likes it's made from three different owners?

Your kamas always look good. Kinda tough and rugged.

I think the paint job is pristine, but a bit too much on the weathering side this time. Could be a bit cleaner, since Vadith isn't one to stay long in the frontlines  ;)

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Working with Acrylic....?
« on: October 28, 2006, 01:41 PM »
Hm, never had the pleasure of owning acrylic displays, let alone drilling holes in 'em. But if you think it's not the sturdiest material around, I'd use a very small drill at first (the kind you use for drilling in metal) and drill at a high speed.

Perhaps you could also ask Potomac if it's safe to drill these displays?

Darklord, that really sucks, what happened to your home and collection  :(

But those designs you've made are excellent! I especially like the designs of the starfighters (X-Wing, Y-Wing, TIE Interceptor) and the Tri-pod cannon, radar cannon and Snowspeeder. But the rest are just as cool. How long did it take you to make all of these?!

Er... the pics are a bit too small  :).
