For whatever reason, this pic tonight I found really stood out for me.



Combining elements of past and future like that could really make this planet look awesome.

Cool stuff Chewie.

I had an idea for the natives. What if they were ET? I think they could be made or found cheap. What do you guys think?

I'm digging a purplish color for the natives.. with maybe some speckled redish brown dots/freckles to break it up a bit.

I'm not sure how I feel about the ET idea.  I thought it was a cute add-on for TPM but I'd be afraid that if we used them as a native species our diorama would feel less "star warsish"  If pople like the idea, Maybe we can include a delegation of them visiting the planet or so?

I have an other idea about the native species on the planet. How about using 6 inch figure (ML, Power Rangers or some others as base) making them larger (sub-giant) species? Could explan the mountainous area of the planet too, where they had to be larger than average. Or if we go with a Dantooine type work, it could still work, we would just need some big creatures to explan the size difference. They would be totally different from anything we have seen in the Star Wars universe and I think it could work. Maybe have some Imperial chain gangs of some miners or something like that. Any thoughts?

I'm sorry roron, I have to vote against that idea. Mixing two different scales isn't easy to do, and it never looks quite right. I stay we stick with 3 3/4" scale.

That thought crossed my mind as well. The King Kong Figures being blown out at Target for $2.50 a pop would make an excellent base for some primatives. I think I might have to conceptulize that idea.

I would think as long as they weren't humanoid, that scale idea could work.  I just don't think a Marvel Legends figure in the middle of a dio full of 4" figs would look right.

Well the don't have to be ML. My kids have some Power Ranger figures and they are only about an inch or so bigger and don't look way out there. I thing that could work well in this project. Maybe add some cloaks or robes to them and you would never know they were not part of the line.

I think I see some of the King Kong figures also when I was looking for VTSC clearance. I mihgt have to go back and see if they are still there.

Just checked and the Power Ranger figures are about 2 inches bigger. Does anyone know of a 5 inch figure lines? Would work and might look better if not so much bigger. Any thoughts?

I've purchased an anime figure (Dragonball Z action figure) that has a body scale about 4.5 inches and was super-articulated.    However the heads would have to swap out and its tough to match the head scale.  Another downside is that the figures were about $10 as I recall.
