Customizing Tips and Tricks / 3D Printers
« on: May 3, 2013, 01:42 PM »
I'm just wondering if someone has tried to use a 3D printer to make custom pieces. Staples has just started selling a 3D printer on their web site. They are still expensive but could be interesting.

The Wookiee Arcade / Disney Infinity
« on: January 22, 2013, 03:15 PM »
This June, Disney is coming out with a Skylanders type game but based on Disney characters. You buy the figures and then can use them in the game. The game is basically a virtual playset for the action figures. You can fight enemies, build buildings, push buttons, drive vehicles and move figures from virtual playset to playset.

Now that makes me think that since Disney owns both Marvel and Star Wars I can see this virtual playset-type game being applied to future Star Wars figures.

The Original Trilogy / Force Lightning

Why didn't Yoda teach Luke that little trick about catching force lightening? What would have happen if Luke caught that lightening and shot it back at the Emperor in ROTJ?

Well it ain't Star Wars but I have been making some classic video game characters out of the beads you buy at Ikea. I think I need to make an R2-D2 or an X-Wing next.

The Original Trilogy / Hammer version of Star Wars
« on: August 25, 2012, 03:43 PM »
I've been watching alot of Hammer horror movies lately on Netflix. Almost all of them had Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in them. I'm wondering what Star Wars would be like if it was produced by Hammer. I'm sure Cushing would remain as Tarkin and Dave Prowse (another Hammer alumni) would still be Vader. I could see Lee playing Ben Kenobi. Of course, there would have to be more violance and some nudity but it would still somehow be rated PG. Princess Leia could be played by Ingrid Pitt. What do you think ANH would be like if produced by Hammer?

Watto's Junk Yard / The bad b-movie thread
« on: July 19, 2012, 11:01 AM »
Post your favorite bad movies here. I'll start out with one that I watched last night on Netflix.

Just finished watching the god awful StarCrash. This movie goes to prove that you can make spaceships out of anything include golf balls and dixie cups. Its always good to have the ship fly over a desert planet at the beginning of the movie.
 
The movie stars the James Bond girl from The Spy Who Loved Me along with a guy with a huge perm. They must rescue the Emporer's son before evil Count Chocula uses his lava lamp weapon on the Emporer's home planet. The lava lamp makes people see monsters. Along the way, she must battle, bikini clad amazon girls, a giant female robot (complete with huge metal boobs), jumping cave men and incite a riot on a prison planet all while wearing a leather dominatrix bikini.

She gets help from a robot that looks like a cross between a stormtrooper and darth vader but talks like the sheriff from Smoky and the Bandit. She finds the Emporer's son, David Hasselhoff, who must use a lightsaber to fight off stop motion robots! Our heros have a big space battle. They fire torpedos thru the space windows of Count Chocula's fortress that looks like a giant claw. The fortress does not decompress. Soldiers then jump out of the torpedos and start a fight. Why couldn't they just put a bomb in one of the torpedos? The bad guys blow up all the good guys ships and kill the boarding party. The Emporer finally decides to ram a big city ship into the fortress and he gets the Bond girl to pilot the ship. On impact, she jumps out of the ship and swims back to a rescue ship. It's a good thing you can swim in space. Horray the galaxy is saved!


A cut scene from Revenge of the Sith!


I've had dreams that start this way.


It's full of Stars!


Mike Brady doesn't have anything on this guy.

Watto's Junk Yard / Xbox One
« on: June 18, 2012, 09:49 AM »
A power point presentation has been leaked by Microsoft on the new XBox. It's to be released next year for $299. It's six times faster than the 360, includes a new Kinect, 3d glasses, connectivity with tables/phones, lots of online services and a blu-ray player. It looks like a dvd player.

The Original Trilogy / Torchering droids?
« on: May 27, 2012, 10:38 AM »
Granted it was a fun scene in ROTJ to see droids being torchered but what's the point? Are we suppose to believe droids can feel pain? Why destroy perfectly good equipment? Why didn't EV-9D9 just wipe R2 and 3PO's memory as standard procedure on getting new droids?
