The Prequel Trilogy / Making the prequals better
« on: October 17, 2006, 12:29 PM »
Recently, I've been thinking about how many different ways GL could have made the prequals much better. To me it seems he didn't have a complete story thought out before ep1 was written.

For example, they introduce a new jedi master called Qui-gon Jinn and then lets Maul kill him at the end of the movie. Later, they introduce Count Dooku being the same type of character that has fallen to the dark side. I think it would have been much better to have qui-gon survive ep1 and turn into the Count Dooku character in ep2. That was just poor planning on GLs part.

Qui-gon could have become disallusioned with the jedi order after being told he couldn't train Anakin and left to join the separists. That would have brought about the duel between Obiwan/Anakin and Qui-gon on Genosis. Having obiwan battle his former master would have been great forshadowing for the Anakin vs Obiwan duel later on. Then in ep3, it would have been great to see Anakin take on the man (qui-gon) that freed him from slavery and agrued to have him be trained as a jedi. What kind of gratude would it have shown for Anakin to kill Qui-gon?

Another thing would be that since Quigon doesn't die in ep1 he couldn't have come back as a ghost to teach Yoda how to become a force ghost. Yoda could have just told Obiwan how to do it instead of saying he's been in contact with quigon and knows how to do this. Besides, it still doesn't make sense that quigon never disappears when he is killed yet yoda and obiwan both do. Quigon never became part of the force so how could he tell Yoda how to do it?

I wonder how difficult it would be for ILM to replace Christopher Lee's head with Liemun Neasons and fix the stories?

Finally, we all know that Boss Ness ultimately served no purpose in the prequals. Why couldn't they have made Boss Ness a senator instead of Jar Jar? He's a better character than Jar Jar ever was. It would have made alot more sense except as a way for the Gungans to finally get rid of Jar Jar from their presence.

I don't know. Just a few ideas that I've been obsessing with lately. What are your ideas for 'fixing' the prequals beyond letting Jar Jar get run over by the ATT at the beginning of ep1?

Watto's Junk Yard / Scary things seen at theme parks
« on: October 3, 2006, 04:07 PM »
I really think Disney needs to enforce a dress code.  :o

What scary things or people have you seen at theme parks?

PenDragon has donated his time and energy to create an official web site for this project. This will be a place where we can archive all our pictures and news. The forums will of course stay here. The site will be used mostly for advertising, picture galleries and donation collection.

This is from PenDragon....
OK, web space is go  Ya know, if you want the ULTIMATE GROUP PROJECT to have it's on web site, and all....

My little 'company,' the JackPoint (, has just upgraded its server & I can go ahead & create the Domain Name any time y'all'd like.

Master P's given me plenty of ideas to work on for the lay out & content. So now, I just need to know what you'd like the name to be (<insert name here>!

Oh, and when you're going to want it up by. Cuz, damn, I'm gonna be busy as all heck for the next 3 months. So if anyone want's to help with the coding, lemme know, k?

Celebration IV - Ultimate Group Project / UGP - Sponsorship
« on: August 11, 2006, 09:49 AM »
Here is where we can discuss cost and look for ways to pay for this project. We will be talking about sponsorship issues and ways to raise funds and who will manage these things.

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.

Sorry, my wife makes me watch this stuff. :-\

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.
