Lookin' good. DAMN good. Why is it so hard for Hasbro to do this?  ;D

If I had any suggestions, it would be that I'd probably pop Mace's lower legs out of his figure and pop them into Agen's thighs. Mace's boots are pretty distinctive. That's a minor quibble though. This figure looks great.

I've thought about it... or at least changing the boots.  I want to keep the knee articulation if I can.

Now that I've given Obi Wan and Mace the Royal Treatment, I can at last rest.  Maybe I will do this later for a few more Jedi.  But not Anakin or Qui Gon, they are too tall I think.

Mace doesn't have knee articulation? Screw that figure! Yours is better!

Nope, Mace doesn't.  Don't ask me why I bought three of them.   :-[

The Agen Kolar in my opinion is the best Jedi custom fodder ever.   :)

Pull of Ki Adi Mundi's robe and chack out the Jedi tunic underneath. It's pretty nice, and will make for some Jedi that look a little different from the regular Jedi rank and file. Not to mention, Kolar's robe fits over him as well.

Yep - I actually made a custom last night using the Ki Adi Mundi body minus the robe. 

Guess I need to send someone a pic of it.  It's not going to be a Jedi, but a character in the photonovel series.

I am still working on a name for him.

Thanks again Famine... these are gonna be set up like this for a while... unless I make a better diorama background for this scene, which I will probably do sometime in the coming weeks.

I am so happy that Hasbro made the Agen Kolar the way they did.

I really don't have any patience for building sets anymore. I prefer to use natural surroundings for scenes, which is why I love making Jurassic Park dioramas.

I agree, it's so dang hard to get motivated to make dioramas for me sometimes... but with all the ROTS stuff out, I need to get rolling and make some.  My ROTS displays look pretty weak compared to the other ones.

Bah, haven't taken any pics lately... but I've been working on a new Mandalorian that I think is pretty neat-o.   :)

Here's the introduction to the 10th story in the Rykrof Enloe Series - sound interesting at all?  It will be posted very soon.



Depths of Cholganna

Following the return of Ambassador Tame Heem to the
Republic, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine has ordered an
attack on the Droid Production Plant on the Separatist
held planet of Cholganna.

Although the attack risks stretching the Army of the Republic
dangerously thin, the Senate has agreed with the Chancellor
that a strike must be made immediately to halt the expansion
of the ever growing Separatist Army.

With no Jedi available for the mission, Commander Rykrof
Enloe has been assigned to lead the attack in an attempt
to disable the shield generator protecting the precious
facility…
