Completed bar pictues?
« on: September 27, 2007, 03:23 PM »
Now that we have the end pieces for the cantina bar, does anyone have a picture of the entire bar put together?

Not exactly completed, but I posted this one a bit ago.



I don't even have room on my current cantina shelf to fit the whole thing. And I might have to pack the whole collection for transport soon. But that's the pic I have so far if you're interested...

A good way to make more room for Wuher's belly is this -



I did something similar to that pic - it's pretty easy to remove the floor pieces where the stools are, and is more film accurate.

The one in that photo is cut. I'm not cutting mine. I might be more inclined to customize if I had the patience and skill. But I'm not going to go chopping on all these things I blow so much money on. I did try the bar with an extra piece stuck between the arcs to give the bartender some room to actually move, but it's pretty wide and doesn't look that great. I may try it again when I have more shelf space to add all the bar pieces I have, for length. I'm only using 2 on each side for now.

On that pic, someone at Rebelscum showed that Jangotat, so that's not mine.  It looks like the center piece has been cut like Ook said.  I didn't cut mine though.  But, I have quite a few of those side pieces since I bought so many of this figure back in the day for just $2.00 each since it seemed every Walmart cleared them out on the cheap -



The extra piece that I have are going towards a custom bar for a fan fiction diorama I've been working on for a while.

As for those original sections, they are nice but the new ones are definitely superior, with the stools and floor being easy to take apart.  With the old ones you need to use a screwdriver to remove the bar section from the floor piece.

Without cutting one of those original flat sections down a bit, I do admit that it's a little wide, but it's still better I think than having it to where Wuher is in such a tight space.  But then again I'm also not using the Hasbro cardboard cantina, I've got a custom cantina (which really needs to be updated actually... another project that I have no time for unfortunately :-\ ).

Hasbro really didn't do too good with their execution of assembling all of this, but I think it's still better than trying to make one from scratch.

Out of interest where do the other pieces and the background come from?

I may have to get them via ebay?

There was a paper pop-up Cantina issued during POTF and reissued later.

Nick, I have one of the pop-up cantinas I'd be willing to sell.  Just PM me if interested; I did use it for display, but it's intact and in good shape!
