CHAOS

Under the leadership of the mysterious Count Dooku,
several thousand systems have declared their intentions to
secede from the Republic.  Few in the Senate believe a
galactic civil war can be avoided.

As the Senate prepares to vote on the proposition to create
a grand army of the Republic, Senator Amidala of Naboo is
preparing to depart her home planet to return to Coruscant.

Meanwhile, Rykrof Enloe has traveled to the remote planet
of Tatooine in hopes to arrest the remaining criminal leaders
of the terrorist Badoo Corba organization…















































































This one was always probably my favorite to do, and time consuming as hell!

 :P

DECEPTION

It is a period of political unrest.  Terrorist attacks throughout the
Outer Rim territories have spread the security forces of the
Republic across the galaxy.

Hoping to convince the Senate of a connection between the terrorists
 and the Trade Federation, Finis Valorum has secretly dispatched an
investigation team to the recently destroyed planet of Abridon. 
Certain of foul play by the Federation, Peace Officer Rykrof Enloe
has joined the secretive operation.   

Meanwhile, the leaders of the ever growing Separatists prepare
for their next move in their bid to bring down the Galactic Republic…




















































That's it for the Special Editions!  I did very little new stuff on this one, just a few tweaks here and there.  Thoughts?

 :P

SLAUGHTER ON MUNIST

Several years have passed since the terrorist organization known as Badoo Corba has been driven from Coruscant.   In spite of this moral victory, the Galactic Republic struggles to maintain control of the Outer Rim, as dozens of systems have rallied behind the leadership of the charismatic Separatist leader, Count Dooku.

This growing sympathy for the Separatist movement in the Senate has resulted in the release of Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray, and has increased tension as the galaxy moves dangerously close to civil war.

As the Senate debates these events, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine has dispatched an ambassador committee to the small planet of Munist, a pivotal system in the growing struggle for political loyalty…
































































That's it for #4... just one more of the originals to redo, then I can get working on #11 and beyond.

Thoughts?

Photonovels and Movies / RE #3 - ANTI-JEDI Special Edition

ANTI-JEDI

The small planet of Naboo has been saved.  However, the
Galactic Republic has entered a time of uncertainty, as hundreds of
systems have threatened to secede as many government leaders
disagree with the charges facing the well respected Trade Federation,

As the fragile Republic government struggles to maintain order, terrorist attacks
by the Badoo Corba organization  have taken the lives of thousands of
innocent civilians throughout the Republic capital of Coruscant. 

In an attempt to route the terrorists out, the Jedi Order has been permitted
 by the Supreme Chancellor to aid the overwhelmed Republic Peace Officers
in their investigation.  Meanwhile, one of the greatest of all Jedi has left
the Jedi Order…










































And that, my friends, is the end of the "Anti-Jedi Special Edition."  Stay tuned for part 4 - the "Slaughter on Munist Special Edition."

I think Owen deserves his own thread here.  His work is fascinating.  He wasn't going to open one, but when I asked him about it, he said sure, go ahead.  So, here I am, basically kissing his ass because his work is so good - and he's humble about it.  Which is amazing.

Anyways, here are a few of his masterpieces that I'd like to discuss with you guys, and hopefully even get some pointers from Owen himself.

IMPERIAL GUN TOWER



REBEL ARMORED SPEEDER



BATTLEFRONT WALL SECTION



HOMING SPIDER DROID



YAVIN IV ACCESSORY SET

Revenge of the Sith / Curse you, Deluxe Wave One!!!
« on: May 12, 2005, 09:36 PM »
Dear Deluxe Wave One,

Because you suck so bad, you are not selling in my area.  Every store is clogged with you.  There is no room for the later waves that look much more promising.  Please die overnight, never to return.

Thank you,

CHEWIE

UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE
   
Turmoil has engulfed the GALACTIC REPUBLIC. 
The taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems is
in dispute.

Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of deadly
battleships, the greedy Trade Federation has stopped all
shipping to the small planet of Naboo.  Queen Amidala of
Naboo has refused to sign any treaty with the
Trade Federation.

While the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched two
Jedi Knights to settle the conflict, Coruscant Peace Officer
Rykrof Enloe has already returned home to Naboo in
an attempt not only to warn his people of the dangers
ahead, but to help prepare them for the worst possibility
of all; invasion…






















































Well that's it for #2 - thanks Famine for hosting yet another one.  Thoughts?  What do you guys think.  There were actually quite a few new shots in this one, but mostly because there were some shots before that were kinda blurry and I wanted to make it a bit crisper.

Revenge of the Sith / Spending too much $$$?
« on: May 9, 2005, 12:57 AM »
I don't know about you guys, but after I find #'s 41-44 and the Mustafar playset, I hope I don't find anything else new for at least a month or so.  I'm in over my head with this stuff... I am sure I've spent at least $1000 on ROTS stuff so far. 

Thoughts?  Anyone else in this situation?  Damn my failure to control my obsession.   :(

 :P

Well here is the Special Edition of this story.  No major changes - but some enhanced effects.  Let me know what you think... this is the first in the Rykrof Enloe series, and takes place right before the Battle of Naboo.


CRISIS ON ABRIDON

It is a dark time for the Republic.  Terrorist attacks throughout Coruscant have caused the deaths of thousands.  The GALACTIC SENATE has chosen to handle the matter internally rather than take advice from the JEDI COUNCIL.

Peacekeeper Rykrof Enloe, a native from the planet Naboo, has been hand selected by the Senate to lead the Republic Guard in an investigation of the Badoo Corba, a radical group believed to be linked to the attacks.  The organization has also been blamed for the mysterious loss of communications with the small planet of Abridon.

Little does the Senate know the scope of the task at hand, as the Badoo Corba organization has secretly been contacted by the powerful TRADE FEDERATION, who has an agenda all its own…



















































Ok, that's the original one redone slightly.  Kinda fun to look back at it because it was the first one I did, and obviously I had no idea what I was doing on it.

Thoughts?  Was it worth redoing the effects on it and adding in a few minor details?

 :P

Revenge of the Sith / Bonus figure vehicle sets - at Kohl's!
« on: May 2, 2005, 03:42 PM »
Hmmm... this is very interesting.  According to RS, the AT-RT has appeared now at Kohls - but with a Bonus Clone Trooper.

Check out this image -

http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=http://www.rebelscum.com/toys2005/AT-RT-Bonus-Clone.jpg

Regular price is $19.99 at Kohl's (doubt Kohl's would get an exlusive, but you never know, they do have a lot more Star Wars stuff than I would have thought).  If these show up at Walmart/Target/TRU, hopefully they will still be $14.99. 

Pretty cool that Hasbro has done this... maybe, just maybe they will start throwing in army-builders like this to help sell vehicles. 

 :P

Thought this might be a fun idea around here... Not to try and outdo each other, but maybe to see what people can come up with.  Maybe we can do a monthly idea - like a category, not necessarily a certain character. 

For May, maybe we can start with... create a hot Star Wars chick.

Then, a new one for June... like a smuggler.

July, a fan fic EU Separatist leader...

...get the idea?  Thoughts?  Who's in?

Revenge of the Sith / What Hasbro really wants to do...
« on: April 25, 2005, 12:05 PM »
According to GH.com -

"The big surprise to many was that Hasbro really, really wants to do a big, massive, all-new Death Star Playset, cardboard dioramas, a Cloud Car, AT-TE, and everything else you could probably think of.  The reasons for not seeing them produced is that they want to wait for either the "right time," or find an appropriate partner to develop the item as an exclusive, which is tougher than you might think.   Creating new tools (molds) and selling through the required minimum quantity makes for a difficult time, so if you want something like the round end cap to the Cantina bar sections, start making a fuss over it and odds are you'll see it down the road."

So... is there new hope for a Death Star and AT-TE?  I'm not too excited about more cardboard dioramas, but this does seem interesting... man, I hope we get a Death Star someday that is done well... and an AT-TE too.  I'd rather have the AT-TE though as a Death Star playset is a lot easier to make on your own than an AT-TE is!
