Collect All 92! / Re: Bib Fortuna
« on: February 10, 2011, 05:46 PM »
Loved vintage Bib, still have the one from waaaaay back. Like others, Bib never saw that much action, so he still looks really good. I really liked the robe on him and the headsculpt. Even today a pretty good sculpt, bearing in mind it's from the early 80s.

You can say what you want, but Kenner really got their softgoods down. Examples: Bib, Lando General, Klaatu, Jedi Luke, Yoda, to name a few.

I have the OTC one as counterpart to my vintage version and will wait for Hasbro to release über-Bib to replace him.

Thanks Glassman! Darth Malgus has been copied of Jokabofe's (a.k.a. Starwarsgeek) excellent version from quite a while ago. I did a few details differently, but still all credits go to him :)

Darth Malgus:
ROC Doc Lewis - head
Cobra Commander (Battle Armour) - upper arms
TAC Galactic Marine - shoulder armour
ROC Flash - breath mask, upper torso, modified upper body gear, lower arms/hands
X-Men Origins: Maverick - lower body, upper legs, neck piece
TAC Vader - lower legs, feet, modified saber hilt
And a random sith cape.

Ven Zallow:
Resolute Duke - head (resculpted hair)
ROC Duke (RIA) - torso, upper arms, upper legs
ROC Ripcord (Accelerator Suit) - shoulder armour, lower arms
TAC Concept Boba Fett - belt
CW Clone Trooper - belt ammo packs
25th. Ann. Wraith - lower legs, feet
Random saber hilt and cloak.

The base was made of a picture frame with two sheets of foamcore painted in shades of brown using a sponge. The pilar's a piece of PVC tubing and the chunks of wall are piece of styrofoam coated with a mix of plaster, woodglue and water.

Haven't played on my PSP for months either. Sold my 10 games quite a while ago and bought GT for PSP. I think I'll get rid of it one of these days, though.

On the PS3, it's racing games all the way for me: NFS:Shift, F1 2010 and GT5. Tekken 6 not so much anymore, but I'll undoubtedly get back at that too. Really looking forward to Killzone 3 next month, though!

Last minute changes of a couple of minor things on the commissioner´s request: added some more chunks and small rubble, as well as scuff marks on the floor. Also gave Ven a green saber, like it should be  :)









And a dramatic cinematic type of shot. Well, kind of:

Recently bought those WFC fellas. Very cool models and I've seen some wicked custom repaints of these as well.

I still have my FX-7 from the 80s, fully functional I might add. Not so surprising since he got zero to none action in my scenarios. Did you know vinty FX-7 can literally stick his neck out for his fellow Rebels?

Lobot, oh my... another favourite of mine back then. And the OTC version is equally great. I agree with Jesse, weirdest yet most awesome set of accessories! Oh, and I just love OTC's pants, man. I'll bet their velvet too!

Collect All 92! / Re: Dengar
« on: January 22, 2011, 02:45 PM »
Never cared much for Dengar when I was a kid. Fett and Bossk always were my favs to be calling the shots. Looking at the card photo, I now think that actor tried out for a Blizzard Force trooper, was deemed unworthy, but to give him a part anyway, Dengar was made up, some bad trooper armour casts from ILM/LFL were thrown in along with some toilet paper and he got his...... 20 seconds of fame  ;)

I'm holding onto my Saga '06 drivers. Not a fan of the removable helmet thing at all, and the added articulation I can live without. I love the vintage one as well. I always felt he got stomped on the head by an AT-AT, making his neck disappear  ;D

I believe I'm going to a White Chapel gig in Feb or March. Will have to contact my buddy about that. But attending a big Belgian metalfest (http://www.graspop.be/2010/en/index.html) is certain! I mean, Ozzy, Zombie, ATR and Foreigner! Hell yeah!

I really like the Saga "Battle of Yavin" version. Have six of them. The latest modern figure has a removable helmet, and I'm not a fan of that. Not at all. The thing about those two pilots in ANH is that their helmets sit so low on their shoulders. The Evolutions version's helmet sits too high.

The vintage pilot is not really a favourite of mine, but I do like the off coloured gloves and boots.

« on: August 24, 2010, 07:29 AM »
Same here, watched a lot of Hanna Barbera, MASK, TF, GI Joe as a kid. Years later we got Cartoon Network and such. I'm a huge fan of Ren & Stimpy, Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Laboratory, Spongebob, The Tick, Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog and the short films of What! A! Cartoon! Brilliant stuff.

Now that I have a 5 y/o daughter and a nearly 2 y/o daughter, I watch quite a bit of Dora, Diego, Backyardigans (they're cool), Rocket Power and such.

But nothing beats Tom & Jerry and the Looney Tunes! Nothing.

A little while ago I rented Zombieland on BR and Ninja Assassin on DVD. I first watched Ninja Assassin on my HD TV and then Zombieland. Mindblowing difference between the two. Blu-Ray's the way for me. I recently bought BBC's Life series on BR (will buy Earth as well) and that is some pretty amazing stuff. Beautiful scenes, especially the ultra slow motion shots.
