Watto's Junk Yard / Jedi Training Academy comes to Disneyland
« on: August 2, 2006, 10:03 AM »
This is from Miceage:

...Where the real action will be for the boys in the family is over at Tomorrowland Terrace, where the Jedi Training Academy will be located. Notice how we didn't say "Club Buzz." Finally, mercifully, they've given up on the silly Club Buzz name no one ever really used and will be returning to the old Tomorrowland Terrace name instead. The facility is set for a remodel and the garish Buzz Lightyear color scheme and decor will be replaced. (Currently there's a holdup with the very touchy George Lucas organization over these plans, but they still should meet the October deadline.)

The Jedi Training Academy is the testosterone-laden version of the Princess Fantasy Faire, with little boys given the opportunity to train with an official Jedi on the fine art of lightsaber fights and generally brave behavior against an evil enemy. The highlight for this event is when the Tomorrowland Terrace stage (gosh, that's nice to say, isn't it?) rises up out of the ground and Darth Vader and Darth Maul both emerge from a cloud of fog to test the mettle of the newly trained Jedi's. You can imagine who will win every single battle, and sales of plastic lightsabers will certainly soar. Imagine the thrills (and walloped ankles) thousands of visitors will then experience as the little Jedi darlings get set loose to roam Disneyland with lightsabers in hand, as parents ignore their rambunctious, if not just plain hooligan-like behavior.

It's friday and time to cast your votes for the best Planet background story for our Star Wars planet group project. Please PM me your vote by sending me the story number at the top of each message. One vote per user. PLEASE DO NOT POST NEW ENTRIES OR OTHER MESSAGES TO THIS THREAD!

I will post the results on monday.

I'm thinking we need a secretary to keep us organized. This person would stomp the other forums looking for new recruits for the project. He would also make up a weekly email detailing the events that have happened this week. That way everybody can keep up to date with what is going on in each department.


Any volunteers?

I would like to start a little contest to name the planet for our group project. The idea is to name the planet and write a short background story about it. This will give us a good direction on how the diorama would be built. Add as much detail as you would like. Just keep it less than two typed pages. Email or PM the story to me by the end of June. I'll post all of the stories and let everyone vote on the best treatment. No prizes. Just the honor of having it as the official background history. After something is chosen we can expand on it.

This is an idea that I've been kicking around for quite some time. The idea is to organize the biggest and most ambitious group project we have ever done. An entire Star Wars WORLD. This project would go on for an entire year and hopefully be displayed at C4 next year (if we can get a sponser). I'll donate space on my new customizing web site for work in progress pictures of everything and display the final results.

The idea is to get multiple customizing forums together to create citizens for this world. All these characters would go into a large diorama complete with buildings, streets and ships of our design. We could do a planet that has been seen on screen before or something totally new.

This thread is designed to get ideas and volunteers and try to organize this huge undertaking. Everybody is welcome to submit suggestions, time  and their work. Let's talk about it here and we can talk about this June 24th at 9pm est in the chat room.

Here is our latest group project. The idea behind this one is to make your totally pimped out ultimate version of Jango Fett. Get creative with this one. Add whatever accessories you want to make the ultimate version of Jango. Give him flame throwers. Give him grappling hooks. Give him a bounty capture claw and missile rack (like hasbro would do). Just make sure he is easily recognizable as Jango.

As for all group projects, please make sure to post plenty of reference pictures and lots of work in progress shots. Please do not submit pictures of figures that you made before this project started unless they are examples of a certain technique or example of something you are trying to duplicate. This is NOT a casting call for old figures.

Final figures will be due on July 31st and will be included in the group project entry thread. Let's get cracking.

Other Custom Figures (non Star Wars) / 12" or 4" customs?
« on: June 10, 2006, 10:44 PM »
Here are a few customs I've been really impressed with. They look like 12" dolls using dragon bodies.







These are actually 4" tall figures using the Microman body! These were made by Steelbonnet over at CC. In my opinion, these things could pass for much larger dolls due to the great joints of the microman body.

What do you think? I know they arn't star wars but they do show off some great advanced customizing techniques I thought you might enjoy.

Star Wars Action Figures / New bounty hunter ideas
« on: May 12, 2006, 09:54 AM »
I came across this picture for the new darth vader game. It's got some interesting looking bounty hunters. That droid looks like he could be done with a Overkill and a grevious head. Interesting looking female bounty hunter there too. What are your ideas on parts for these?

Saga Collection '06 / Stormtrooper Lucas on ebay
« on: April 27, 2006, 10:03 AM »
It looks like stormtrooper lucas is on ebay already. This seller is selling just the order form and stickers for the Lucas Stormtrooper figure. Probably stolen from cards that are on the pegs. You still have to mail in the order form and shipping. This guy wants $5.50 to ship you some small pieces of paper.

Well here we are on our 12th group project for the month of April. This time we got two Imperial female officers to make. Basically these two should be a good team to make since they are so simular. You could practically use the same body with a different head. I'd suggest making Daala in her flight suit to mix things up a little. You can make them in any outfit you want as long as there is a reference picture somewhere on the net for them. Anyway the due date is the end of May. Please try to have them done by then. Also please post lots of work in progress pictures along the way.

Here are some reference pictures I dug up of our ladies.


Ysanne Isard


Admiral Daala

Star Wars Action Figures / Shadow Stormtrooper
« on: March 27, 2006, 12:43 AM »
This is my version of the upcoming Shadow Stormtrooper exclusive. He is based on the back of the card picture of the Shadow Stormtrooper. I liked it because they used a blue body glove instead of just spray painting a stromtrooper black and adding some white highlight to the helmet like the one we are really getting. Sorry about brightness of the picture. It's next to impossible for me to photograph a shiny black figure and not lose detail in the reflections.

Because of a suggestion by Darth_Ennis, I've started this thread to collect past Group Project entries. Group Projects are something I started over at RebelScum a few years ago. It has moved from FFURG and now to here. So far we have had twelve projects over two years.

The idea behind the group project is that we all create the same character based on any reference pictures we can find. We discuss parts to use and customizing techniques. We are suppost to post work in progress pictures of the character.

In this thread, I'm going to start off with Group Project 9 which was based completely here at JD. You can check out Group Projects 1-8 over at FFURG on this page: http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/cc-48.htm

Here is a listing of past Group Projects:

Group Project 1: Biggs Darklighter in Imperial Academy Uniform
Group Project 2: Adult Clonetrooper in Kamino Training Gear / Queen Amidala's Handmaidens
Group Project 3: ANH Infinities Leia Organa / Kenny Baker as R2-D2
Group Project 4: KOTOR Mission Vao and Carth
Group Project 5: Crossovers (Muppets, Lunney Tunes, Peanuts, Simpsons, etc.)
Group Project 6: Santa Wookiees
Group Project 7: Mon Calamari Dancer and Fem-bot
Group Project 8: Snoova and Jedi Defender self customs
Group Project 9: Tonnika Sisters
Group Project 10: Clone Wars TV Series (minus the clones)
Group Project 11: Rykrof Enloe
Group Project 12: Ysanne Isard and Admiral Daala
Group Project 13: Jango Fett
