The References are a good idea Jason...  Hopefully some DVD images are going to be coming in too, from various places (*whistles innocently*) that maybe shed some light on Clones rarely seen even in the film.

Well it's up and ready for public viewing, the Return of the Clonetroopers Casting Call has been completed. I'd like to thank all of you who took the time to submit your customs. There is some great work on display and I'm sure as time goes on, we'll have even more cool ROTS Clones to show.

Happy Customizing!

As per the newspost I did the other day, www.FFURG.com is doing another of their Casting Calls.  This time for "Masters & Apprentices".


Everyone's welcome to participate and create customs of a Master and his Apprentice to enter for the event.  Submissions are due by August 14th I believe, which is also the day the figures will all debut.

So crank out those Masters & Apprentices...  Off the top of my head, here's some good ones...

Anakin & Obi-Wan
Anakin & Qui-Gon
Anakin & Palpatine/Sidious
Obi-Wan & Qui-Gon
Biggs & Luke (Empire Comics Series?)
Luke & Mara Jade
Kyle Katarn & Luke
Jerec & Yun

Basically, you get the idea...  There's a lotta possibilities here.

Well JJ's post is a bit outdated, the deadline for the Masters & Apprentices Casting Call had to be pushed back until August 28th. Many of JJ's ideas are sound and we're hoping to see a lot of unique combos. I have one myself coming up that I am curious to see if anyone recognizes. Keep in mind too, that the Casting Calls are not just for brand new customs you just made, but you can also submit previously made customs, so long as they match the particular CC concept.

Happy Customizing!

Is FFURG forums down right now?  Here is the message I keep getting -

There appears to be an error with the FFURG database.

mySQL query error: SELECT f.*, c.id as cat_id, c.position as cat_position, c.state as cat_state, c.name as cat_name, c.description as cat_desc,
                 c.image, c.url, m.member_name as mod_name, m.member_id as mod_id, m.is_group, m.group_id, m.group_name, m.mid

                 order by c.position, f.position

mySQL error: Got error 28 from table handler
mySQL error code: 1030

EDIT - seems to be working fine now.

Yeah the FForums were down for a bit today. Unfortunately the SQL DB on our host server decided it wanted to take a dump and wouldn't come out of the bathroom for a couple of hours. Ironically, I noticed that Scum's forums were down for a bit today (sorry I still go there for the local reports) due to SQL problems and we just finished resolving a problem here at work on, you guess it, SQL problems.

To speak for Jason, I don't think he knows at this point Ryan...  They'll be back though eventually, just that this is a server thing I'm pretty sure and not on our end...  Supposedly some maintenance was to go on, and as often happens the maintenance turned from small to big quickly.

Hopefully when things come back up online you guys that visit FFURG too can throw your customs updates up on the site and all will be right with customizing once again. :)

I'm sure when Jason's around he'll catch this and update for us if I'm misinterpreting FFURG matters for ya.

When is someone going to fix FFURG's forum?

See the post above I made...  That's the state of things.  They went to do upgrades, a short-term issue turned I guess into a long one, and that's where it stands for the FForums unfortunately right now as near as I can tell.  If the staff at FFURG could fix it Jason, Tim, and Ash would be on it I"m sure but it's out of their hands at the moment unfortunately.  Definitely BS with the downtime but it happens to the best of sites  too so this just sucks.

In due time it'll be back, and I'll make sure to post if I see it before anyone, but if you notice them back up and no post here feel free to update.  I hope it's soon too but in the meantime I'm enjoying just looking around here too...  Always good for diversity though, so this does suck.

Yup, up and running and nobody's more frustrated than the staff I'm sure.  That was some LONG downtime when it was only to be a short time I guess.  Annoying as hell. 

Glad it's back up because it's just another resource for the hobby that I miss when it's not around.  FFURG says thanks for the thoughts guys.

Are the FForums down again? I just went to check it out over there and I got the same error screen we got last time they broke down. :-\
